Three-times British champion jockey Frankie Dettori has been suspended from riding for six months after being found guilty of taking a prohibited substance during a routine examination at Longchamp in September this year. His lawyer Christopher Stewart-Moore said he "fully accepts" the decision:
"I have spoken to Frankie since the announcement was made and he has told me he fully accepts France Galop's decision. He also accepts that he has let down the sport he loves and all those associated with it, as well as the wider public."
"But most of all, and this is his greatest regret, he has let down his wife and children."
