Frankie Dettori performs a flying dismount after winning the Oaks at Epsom

Frankie Dettori has steered Anapurna to a thrilling victory in the Oaks at Epsom, 25 years after his first win in the Classic.

Dettori previously won the Oaks on Moonshell in 1995, Kazzia in 2002 and Enable two years ago.

The post Italian star Frankie "in love" after fifth Oaks win on Gosden's Anapurna appeared first on Horse Racing News and Tips.

"I thought coming past the furlong pole [Ryan] Moore [on Pink Dogwood] had got it, but somehow this filly found the courage of reserves and energy to get her head back in front".

"A fearless performance by the filly and courageous from the jockey".

"She went for a gap up the inside and you don't always find it there", Gosden said.

"The last 50 yards are uphill and she basically outstayed the other filly. Full marks to both riders and both fillies - two magnificent fillies".

Following the allegations, he was also asked to step back as a judge from singing reality show, Indian Idol . Till now, the reports of him returning as the judge of the reality show has yet not been confirmed.

Trainer John Gosden paid tribute to Anapurna's breeders, the Meon Valley Stud, who are hoping for an Epsom double when Telecaster runs in the Derby on Saturday.

"The only thing I was afraid of was inexperience, but I had a great run round".

He added: "I absolutely love it". I think a mile and a half (2400m) is spot on for her.

Manuela De Vega (16/1) was fourth, having a length-and-a-half advantage over another Ballydoyle runner, Delphinia (66/1), at the end.

St Leger victor Kew Gardens, under Moore for O'Brien, hit the front in the straight but Defoe passed him as the winning post neared.

Mehdaayih (11/4), who had been supplemented earlier in the week, started as race favourite, with Pink Dogwood (3/1), victor of the Salsabil Stakes at Navan, second favourite and the more fancied of the Ballydoyle quartet in the 14-runner field.

It was quite a rough race, but having ridden his first Classic victor here 25 years ago, Dettori was wise to all that. This is unbelievable and we dream of winning Classics so to see it all come to fruition with this filly is wonderful.
