Ta Ta Frankie

I think it's probably time. He's a great jockey and had a fabulous career, but he's definitely lost his edge which you would expect

It would be unwise to write off Frankie boy, hope this news spurs him on to prove his doubters wrong.

I don't see any problem with it. It's natural progression.  Frankie is 51 now. You can't ride at the top of the game forever.

Holly Doyle will be a great replacement 

Lester Piggott returned to racing in his 50s and still rode at a top level. The look of dejection on Frankies face after Stradivarius defeat tells us his heart is still 100% in the game, it will take a helluva lot more than Hollie Doyle to replace that guy in the saddle.

In Lester's day I don't think the jockeys were as fit as they are now. I've noticed a decline in frankie especially in a finish

Tell ya what hardman, my money is going on the wee man in the next couple of Months. The wee man is still fit as a flea and will have no problems booking rides for other trainers where the Italian stallion will prove his doubters wrong..fuck John Gosden.

p.s. Hasn’t Stradivarius been a wee bit tricky in the past?, I think Gosdens Sons criticism should have been delivered privately imo.

I'm sure he's still got a lot to offer. I didn't see the thady criticism, but yes that should always be done privately. 

He may well ride loads more winners, just my own opinion with what I've seen

Go on Frankie, 1 ride today and he delivers, the recent criticism has probably turned the clock back 10 years.
