Leap Of Faith

by DETTORI, FRANKIE

Leap Of Faith

Leap Of Faith

Legendary jockey, Frankie Dettori, shares his remarkable life
story in this astonishingly intimate autobiography. When
Lanfranco 'Frankie' Dettori arrived on British shores in 1985,
aged just 14, he couldn?t speak a word of English. Having left
school just a year earlier and following in the footsteps of his
father, he was eager to become a stable boy and apprentice
jockey, willing to do everything it took to make it. This was his
first, but certainly not his last, leap of faith.
Despite his slight size, Frankie's impact upon the British racing
scene was immediate and significant. Brimming with confidence,
charisma and personality, and with what was clearly a precocious
talent, in 1990 he became the first teenager since Lester Piggot
to win over 100 races in a single season.
Heartfelt and poignant, this is not simply a memoir, but a
celebration of perseverance and defying the odds.
