Frankie Dettori

Frankie Dettori is set to keep busy this winter, with planned trips to Japan and Hong Kong.

Dettori had a record-breaking 2019 for his haul of Group One victories and is set to ride Cambridgeshire winner Lord North, at Lingfield Park this weekend, before jetting off.

He will then ride in Japan for a fortnight before heading to the International Jockeys Challenge at Happy Valley in Hong Kong.

Dettori said: “I ride at Lingfield on Saturday – then I head out to Japan on Tuesday. I’m not sure what I’m riding out there at the moment, though.

“Because I’m going to Japan, I will be fit from that – so it makes sense to go to Hong Kong afterwards. I will be doing two weeks in Japan, then I will be doing a week in Hong Kong.

“I’m going to do the International Jockeys Challenge at Happy Valley. I’ve won it three times before, so I hope we can have a bit of fun again in that.

“After that I will then be riding at Sha Tin on Hong Kong Cup day – which should be good.”
