|GLOBAL PODIUM OF THE WEEK|
Gold: Lanfranco Dettori
(Italy, Horse Racing (Flat))
‘Frankie’ Dettori keeps increasing his legacy as the most successful jockey of all time, after winning the Grade I British Champions Fillies and Mares Stakes -for a sixth time- (mounting Emily Upjohn (ENG)), as well as the British Champions Sprint Stakes -for a fifth time-, mounting Kinross.
He did not compete in the Champion Stakes, which were won by Richard Kingscote (ENG), mounting Bay Bridge (ENG), who upset Baaeed (ENG) -unbeaten in 10 races- in the horse’s likely last race at Ascot Park.
