Godolphin End Dettori Retainer

Frankie Dettori's longstanding partnership with Godolphin has been brought to an end, it was announced today. A statement issued on the website of the racing operation of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum read, "Frankie Dettori will not be retained by Godolphin next year, but he will continue to ride for the stable." Reflecting on the decision to close out the formal arrangement after 18 years, Godolphin's Racing Manager Simon Crisford said, "We have had a tremendous association with Frankie over many years. He has achieved so much on behalf of Godolphin and has made the difference between winning and losing on so many occasions in the world's biggest races. However, Frankie is looking for a fresh challenge and we felt that the retainer was not really working, so this is the best way forward. We have had many great days together and we look forward to working with Frankie in the future and hopefully enjoying more success together. He remains a great friend--the difference next year will be that he will not be our retained jockey and will operate as a freelance instead." Dettori added, "I have had 18 wonderful years. Godolphin has been a major part of everything I have achieved in racing and I have loved every minute of it. I feel the time has come for a change. My position in the stable has changed a little bit and I need a new challenge. Sheikh Mohammed has been an unbelievable boss to me. He had the confidence to take me on board when I was young and we smashed every record together. I will be forever grateful to him for everything he has done for me and for my family. The whole team have been fantastic - none of it would have been possible without them."
