‘I Was Never Good Enough For Him’: Frankie Dettori Reflects On New Documentary

Jockey Frankie Dettori is the subject of a new documentary film, Dettori, which focuses on both his racing career and his personal life, including a complicated relationship with his father, Gianfranco.

In the film, according to The Times, Dettori’s father explains that he doubted his son possessed the grit and determination to come back to race-riding after a plane crash in 2000 that killed the pilot, and nearly killed the jockey.

“My dad felt that all his life about me,” Dettori told The Times. “Even at the beginning he felt I was never good enough for him. I didn’t speak to him for three years and only because of the plane crash did I talk to him.”

The documentary is available on Blu-ray, DVD and download-to-own from Nov. 15.
