The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has today re-issued Frankie Dettori with a full professional British jockey’s licence. This follows confirmation from France Galop that he has succesfully fulfilled all of their criteria to be fit to ride. Dettori is now clear to return to race riding following the suspension imposed on him by France Galop at a hearing on 5th December 2012 into a failed test for a prohibited substance.
Dettori met with the BHA Licensing Committee on 14th May, who on this date stated their satisfaction that he was fit to return to race riding in Britain pending confirmation that he had fulfilled the criteria of France Galop.
It is one of the criteria of his being granted a licence that Dettori may be subject to enhanced testing controls for a period of up to 60 months.
