JOCKEY Frankie Dettori has failed a drugs test for a banned substance — believed to be cocaine.
The three-times champ, 41, faces an inquiry after the shock at Longchamp, France.
Dettori — dubbed “the housewives’ favourite” because of his good looks — could face a worldwide horse-racing ban if he is found guilty.
The test happened on September 16 when the major trials for Europe’s richest race, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, were being held at Longchamp in France.
Dettori — tested at random and famed for his spectacular “flying dismount” after races — will be hauled before the notoriously strict French racing authorities next week.
If the hearing goes against him, the Italian could face a global ban of up to six months.
