John Harry Martin Gosden OBE - or Johnny G for short, is one of Britain's most successful trainers from recent eras.
Born in 1951, he has trained over 3,000 winners worldwide, including winners at the Breeders' Cup meeting, the Epsom Derby, the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in France, the King George at Ascot, as well as over 600 winners in the United States.
Graduating from Cambridgeshire University, he is unanimously considered as one of the finest trainers of his generation, with his reputation for honesty and virtue leading him to be referred to as 'one of the sport’s great communicators'.
After a few quiet years, he has begun to look more like a dominant and leading figure in the British Flat season, making the same impact that Aidan O'Brien has had in Ireland.
Based at Clarehaven Stables, he is another trainer who virtually has every trophy and medal in the cabinet at home, including four wins in the St Leger, four in the Irish Champion Stakes and is a three-time Champion Trainer.
The only major that evades him has been the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket, which he has won once in Ireland, with the great Kingman in 2014.
Married to Rachel Hood - a lawyer, he has four children, named Sebastian, Serena, Theodora and Thaddeus.
Gosden has had so many talented individuals over the course of the last thirty years, but in the last two or three, he has probably had his best bunch to-date, which we will look into below.
