GB: Frankie Dettori has dominated the small screen for more than 30 years – and now the superstar jockey is coming to the big screen in a new documentary that details his extraordinary life.
The movie ‘Dettori’, made by Embankment Films, charts the rider’s life as he is sent to England as a teenager to follow in the footsteps of his father, the Italian champion Gianfranco.
It details how he overcame a career-threatening early injury, escaped from the inferno of a deadly plane crash and overcame drug abuse, repeatedly picking himself up and driving himself to new heights.
Dettori grants behind-closed-doors access to his life and the inner sanctum of the racing world as the film-makers shadow his every step as he strives for a record third victory in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe on his favourite horse Enable.
The film will be released to selected cinemas and on DVD, Blu-ray and download on November 15.
