27 Frankie Dettori's Magnificent Seven

Number 27 from the channel 4 show 100 Greatest Sporting Moments
On September 28 1996, Dettori rode his way into history, winning all seven races on the card at the Ascot Festival, a feat that was previously regarded as unachievable and may never be repeated.

Dettori was already a well-known and popular jockey, but his exploits propelled him into the spotlight and the diminutive Italian became a household name. His 25,051-1 accumulator earned one lucky punter more than £500,000 as he completed his 'Magnificent Seven'.
