The John Gosden-trained filly won the English, Irish and Yorkshire Oaks and the King George at Ascot before cruising to victory in Chantilly, France this month to make Dettori the most successful jockey in the race’s history.

“To me, she’s the filly of a lifetime, so of course I‘m made up. What she’s done this year has been phenomenal,” Dettori told reporters after owner Prince Khalid bin Abdullah announced the decision to keep the three-year-old in training next year.

“Everyone who likes racing wants to see her again next year, so it’s great news,” the Italian added.
