Frankie Dettori becomes an honorary doctor

Posted on | 0 Responses

Jockey Frankie Dettori has been made an honorary Doctor of Science at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge. Frankie was chosen by the University for his services to racing.

Originally from Italy, Suffolk based Dettori came to England as a teenager to become a stable lad. After his racecourse achievements were recognised, Frankie Dettori became a household name.

Dettori said: ‘It feels a little bit embarrassing, to be honest, as I have been standing alongside hundreds of young students who have been studying for many years to get a degree and I’ve sneaked in through the back door.’

‘I left school at 14 and I have been here for 25 years now. I came here with little English but the British public have really embraced me.’

‘I’m really proud to receive an honorary doctorate and I can’t wait to show the pictures to my children.’
