Sand storms to Deauville glory
Frankie Dettori steered Sandiva to a cosy victory in the Prix du Calvados at Deauville for his new boss owner Sheikh Joaan Al Thani.
The Italian celebrated with his trademark flying dismount in the winner's enclosure following this Group Three success over seven furlongs.
Trained by Richard Fahey, Sandiva held a handy position on the outside before taking the leading over a furlong out and bounding clear to beat Straight Thinking, who stayed on well for second.
There was drama just after gates opened when Sandiva's main market rival, Lacarolina, jumped out awkwardly in the next stall and unseated her rider Gregory Benoist.
