Maybe not a horse which many will recall, but Barathea landed the Breeders’ Cup Mile back in 1994, and would be the first of many wins in the States for Frankie Dettori – who at the time was your everyday-regular jockey. He would go on to record thirteen wins at the Breeders’ Cup meeting at Churchill Downs – held every November, including four in the Breeders’ Cup Turf; most recently aboard Dangerous Midge in 2010. Ouija Board is probably the most famous of Dettori’s successes, with the horse winning the Breeders Cup Filly/Mare Turf in 2006, with the mare since becoming a very successful dam. Dettori’s trips to the States have allowed him to become an internationally-known favourite.
