Dettori Suspended From Horse Racing For Six Months [00:16]
The three-times British champion jockey is suspended after testing positive for a banned substance earlier this year. Frankie Dettori has been suspended from riding for six months after being found guilty of taking a banned substance. The three-times British champion jockey tested positive following a routine examination at Longchamp racecourse in France on September 16. French horseracing's governing body France Galop issued the ban following a recent hearing, and the British Horseracing Authority is likely to follow suit. The 41-year-old's solicitor Christopher Stewart-Moore said the jockey "fully accepts" the ban, which lasts until May 19. "France Galop have today announced their finding Frankie Dettori has committed a breach of their rules relating to prohibited substances," said Mr Stewart-Moore. "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." Mr Stewart-Moore said Dettori was "enormously grateful" for the support of his fans, adding: "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 ...

1998 Dubai World Cup - Silver Charm -vs- Swain [02:07]
In a dramatic finish, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Silver Charm nosed out Swain of Dubai to win the $4 million Dubai World Cup yesterday and double his career earnings. Ridden by the Hall of Famer Gary Stevens, the 4-year-old earned the $2.4 million first prize for his owners, Bob and Beverly Lewis, with a courageous rally. Silver Charm's previous earnings had totaled $2.2 million. Silver Charm, the prohibitive favorite, first repulsed strong challenges from Loup Sauvage of France and Malek, the surprise winner of the Santa Anita Handicap. Then, Swain came up and briefly grabbed the lead in the stretch. As the two pounded toward the finish line, Silver Charm fought back and barely edged in front. I knew it was going to be a competitive race, said Stevens, who rode Silver Charm shortly after guiding Annus Mirablis of Dubai to victory in the $500000 Dubai Duty Free race. He's the greatest horse I've ridden. I knew I had a great chance, but I knew they weren't going to give it away, Bob Baffert, Silver Charm's trainer, said. Silver Charm broke second from the gate and stayed behind another horse from the United States, Behrens, until the top of the stretch. He then took the lead, only to be challenged by Loup Sauvage and Malek. After putting them away, he faced the challenge of the hard-charging Swain. But Silver Charm prevailed in 2 minutes 9 2/5 seconds for the mile and a quarter. Loup Sauvage finished third, with Malek fourth. Race video donated by Jeff Mende..

1998 Iselin Handicap Grade I [06:11]
Weight has long been the great equalizer in horse racing, and today at Monmouth Park, it almost humbled Skip Away. Almost. Spotting his six modest rivals from 16 to 20 pounds as he carried top weight of 131 pounds, Skip Away was caught in midstretch by Stormin Fever but rallied through the final sixteenth to win the $500000 Iselin Handicap by a nose, his eighth straight victory. The crowd of 19107 gasped in disbelief as Stormin Fever, a 10-1 shot whose only victories this year have been in allowance races, moved up rapidly on the far turn and took dead aim at the prohibitive favorite at the head of the stretch. Under vigorous urging from Jose Santos, Stormin Fever -- who carried 113 pounds -- poked a nose in front in the deep stretch, but Skip Away came back on the inside in the final strides and actually was pulling off at the wire. ''It probably scared a lot of people more than me,'' said Jerry Bailey, the jockey, who sent Skip Away to the lead after a half-mile. ''He was in a neutral mode, and when the other horse came to him, I could feel his motor start running again. With the weight, it took him a few strides to get going again.'' The performance surprised Santos. ''At the eighth pole, I thought I was home free,'' the jockey said. ''Skip Away had to really show class today to come back and beat me.'' Sonny Hine, Skip Away's trainer, said: ''Skippy never gives up. I wasn't worried when that other horse came up to him.'' If Hine had a concern, it was over another ...
