'One of the greatest jockeys of all time'  

Italian-born Frankie Dettori is one of the greatest jockeys of all time. 

Among his many achievements, Dettori rode more than 100 winners in a season while still a teenager. 

Perhaps his crowning glory was riding all seven winners on a single day at Ascot in 1996.  

In 2002 Dettori became a captain on the BBC's 'A Question of Sport' - resigning just a year later after being unable to answer the question of when he retired.  

He then rededicated his life to racing, where his successes have continued.  

The agents believe it is the perfect home for anyone with a passion for horses and are expecting a huge amount of interest.

Newmarket is famed for its racecourse and is home to a number of prominent jockeys and trainers.

The Dettoris sold White Horse Stables in 2015.

A spokesman for estate agents Jackson-Stops said: 'This house was the much-loved home of legendary Jockey Frankie Dettori.

'He and his wife Catherine raised their family at the Newmarket home until 2015.

'The home is unsurprisingly very well-equipped with equestrian facilities within over 15 acres of land.'

Dettori, a former captain on TV's A Question of Sport, has been named British flat racing champion jockey three times. 

He once rode all seven winners in one day's racing at Ascot in 1996.

The Italian-born star is famed for his exuberant celebration which sees him flamboyantly leap from his horse after a race win.

Anyone interested in purchasing his former home should contact Jackson-Stops.

The home is unsurprisingly very well-equipped with equestrian facilities, with eight stables, fenced paddocks and a floodlit menage all on site

Also on the White Horse Stables grounds is a detached three-bedroom cottage, as well as a cart lodge with guest accommodation
