PARIS, France -- Frankie Dettori became the first jockey to win the Epsom Derby, French Derby and French Oaks in the same year as he partnered West Wind to an emphatic victory at Chantilly.
The charismatic Italian, who is based in Britain, has enjoyed a dream eight days, winning his first Epsom Derby on Authorized and completing the derby double on Lawman the following day.
Sunday's winner was the first ever Group One winner for trainer Alex Pantall as Dettori rode a picturebook race on the 8/1 shot, having time to look around before raising his finger in triumph.
The Sheikh Mohammed-owned filly came home ahead of Mrs Lindsay, ridden by Irishman Johnny Murtagh, while Diyakalanie was third under Thierry Thulliez.
For the fashionable training center of Chantilly it was a humbling experience as none of the first four were trained there.
"It is crazy!" said Dettori, who for good measure climbed onto an elephant on the way to the prizegiving ceremony.
"I am delighted as it is the first time I have won the Diane and also to have ridden Alex's first Group One winner.
"It is an historic day."
Dettori powers home on West Wind for French Oaks triumph at Chantilly.
