Bio: Few have achieved as much in the sport of horse racing as Joh Gosden. Being appointed an OBE for services to racing should tell you that from the get go. Gosden has trained over 3000 winners in his career including wins in races such as the Derby, the King George, and the Breeders Cup – a leg in the Grand Slam of thoroughbred racing. He’s experienced much success stateside.
Having graduated from Cambridge University in his younger years he went to study under accomplished trainers Vincent O’Brien and Sir Noel Murless. Working with them brought much success at the time, including the aforementioned Derby win, as well as a win in the St Leger Stakes. His success in the states can be put down to a move to California where he trained under Tommy Doyle, where he went on to claim wins in the likes of Santa Anita Handicap and later the Breeder’s Cup Mile.
Further moves followed, and success followed with it, to Newcastle where Gosden struck up a successful partnership with Frankie Dettori, to Manton where he won the 1000 Guineas Stakes with Lahan amongst other big name races. He’s currently at Clarehaven Stables. where he continues his success, resulting in him picking up Champion Trainer twice, in 2012 ans 2015.
