John Gosden

Trainer Profile

John Gosden
John Gosden was born in Sussex, England on March 30, 1951.

Gosden's father, John 'Towser' Gosden was a well known trainer who died in 1967. Gosden wasn't immediately drawn to the world of horse racing. After school he went to Cambridge University where he read Economics. After he graduated, he moved to Venezuela where he worked in land management.

He returned to England and immediately went to work for Noel Murless as an assistant. He stayed with the legendary Murless until he retired and then moved to Ireland where he worked for Vincent O'Brien, also as an assistant. He then moved to California to assist Tommy Doyle.

In 1979 he acquired his American horse training license. He trained two Eclipse Award winners; Bates Motel (Handicap Horse) 1983 and Royal heroine (Turf Mare) 1984. He moved back to England in 1988 and set up business at Stanley House Stables in Newmarket. He gained his first British Classic victory in 1996 when Shantou crossed the line first in the St Leger Stakes. In 1997 he accomplished the win of all trainers' fantasies...the Epsom Derby with Benny the Dip.

In 1999 he moved to Robert Sangster's Manton complex. He started off the 2000 season with a big win at the 1000 Guineas with Lahan. In 2005 he decided to return to Newmarket and is now training from the Clarehaven Stables. Gosden is married to Rachel Hood who is the vice president of the Racehorse Owners' Association.
