On being named Jockey of the Month, Dettori said: “I’m delighted to have been voted as Jockey of the Month.”
“June was a fantastic month for me with Royal Ascot being the pinnacle – especially winning a third gold cup with Stradivarius which was amazing and a special moment for me. Thank you to everyone who voted for me!”
Early in the week, victories came with Fanny Logan in the Hardwicke Stakes which resulted in Dettori’s 70th Royal Ascot win of his career, the Ribblesdale Stakes aboard Frankly Darling, and a third successive Gold Cup with Stradivarius.
Dettori stole the show on the final day of Royal Ascot (Saturday 20th June) with a tremendous treble.
Victories came in the Queen Mary Stakes aboard Campanelle, Palace Pier securing the St James’s Palace Stakes and Alpine Star winning the Coronation Stakes – the latter two races forming part of the 2020 QIPCO British Champions Series.
Dettori secured a total of 19 victories in June and amongst his other successes were doubles at Newmarket, Yarmouth and Doncaster. He is currently tenth in the 2020 Flat Jockeys’ Championship with 20 wins in total so far this season.
In winning the competition, Frankie Dettori is awarded £1,000 and a £500 charity donation of his choice. He has selected the Direct Aid for Africa (DAFA) as his chosen charity.
