Dettori vows to rebuild reputationHeadlines
Frankie Dettori

Jockey Frankie Dettori has vowed to "rebuild his reputation" once he has served his six-month suspension after being found guilty of taking a prohibited substance.

Dettori, who was cautioned by police for possession of cocaine in 1993, is believed to have tested positive for the same drug by Longchamp stewards after the meeting on September 16.

His legal representative Christopher Stewart-Moore said: "He is enormously grateful for the opportunities that he has been given by owners and trainers over the years, and for the support of his many fans."

He added: "Racing has been good to Frankie and he knows that his privileged position brings with it responsibility. For this reason he is determined to rebuild his reputation when he returns to the saddle.

"Frankie could make excuses. He has, after all, regularly been tested for prohibited substances throughout his career.

"He is clear, however, that the responsibility for his current situation lies squarely with him.

"From the start of France Galop's inquiry he has acknowledged to them he has made a mistake and that the fault was his.

"Finally, he has asked me to thank everyone for the many messages of support he and his family have received."
