She was known as "Frankie" on the slims tour, I think.

That is true, especially with names. Like with that creepy Le Pen guy, they say that "n", as if it were "Le Penne". And Halard-Decugis, they pronounce the final "s". Very confusing for us foreigners!

BUT -- using François for Françoise, that's a very, very elementary mistake, and someone should have caught it before airing the segment.

There was a jockey named Frankie Durr. Maybe that's who they mean.
