“June was a brilliant month for me. To win at Royal Ascot has always been a lifelong dream, but to win the opening race of the week and my first Group 1 at the same time, it felt even more special!”

“I really hope this will be the making of me, and will take me onto the next level. To be recognised amongst some of my heroes is a huge honour.

“I would be extremely grateful to anyone who votes for me!”

Frankie Dettori

Four of those wins came at Royal Ascot, including a treble on the opening day. This year’s Royal Ascot also saw Frankie grab his sixtieth Royal Ascot win – a phenomenal achievement.

Speaking of his delight at being nominated, Frankie said: “It’s great to be recognised by Great British Racing for what was a fantastic month of racing for me.

“It all started with Cracksman and the Coronation Cup, which was harder than a lot of people imagined! But then to win the treble on the opening day of Ascot, I couldn’t be happier.“I was particularly delighted with the Ascot Gold Cup win on Stradivarius. That was a big win for me!

“To be named Stobart Jockey of the Month would be the cherry on top!”

William Buick

On being nominated for Stobart Jockey of the Month, The 29-year-old said: “I’m extremely pleased to be nominated. Winning the Epsom Derby for the first time has to be a career highlight for me. For me it’s the biggest race in the world, and I consider myself very lucky to be the first jockey to win that race in the famous Godolphin colours.

“To then enjoy three victories at Royal Ascot, it feels like a truly successful month for me, and the Jockey of the Month nomination highlights that.

“To win three races at Royal Ascot is special for any jockey, but the win on Blue Point in the King’s Stand Stakes stands out for me. That felt like an important win for the team!

“I’d like to thank Great British Racing for the nomination, and to anyone that will vote for me!”
