Frankie Dettori has been named as official ambassador for Newmarket’s racecourses, where he has ridden no less than five Classic winners. The Italian-born former champion jockey, who was survived a plane crash on the heath near the Rowley Mile 15 years ago, has lived in the town for more than 30 years and said he thought his new role was “fantastic.”

“This town is my home and I can’t wait to get started,” he said.
