Frankie Dettori's lawyer said he was "determined to rebuild his reputation" after receiving a six-month worldwide racing ban after testing positive for a prohibited substance. His lawyer said the champion jockey took full responsibility for his actions, and was determined to return to the saddle:
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.
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.
