Known for his trademark hat, he has put his rivals in the shade with such superlative animals as the wonder-mare Enable, herself a two times Arc winner.
Now training in unison with his son Thaddeus (Thady), the Gosden name will race on for another generation and collect a further glut of Group One prizes.
Back to Britain
In early 1994, a certain Lanfranco 'Frankie' Dettori began to find himself in the racing results pages next to John Gosden winners.

The sight of Dettori flashing home in front on Enable in the Khaled Abdulla pink and green silks was a sight to behold and over the course of 2017/18 they did so, an astonishing eleven times in a row at Group One level.
Gosden's marvellous mare then overcame injury and sickness to win second Arc on the spin by a gutsy short-neck from the William Haggas trained Sea Of Class in 2018.
Dettori was emotional on the news of Enable's retirement in 2020, telling racingpost.com: "She is the horse that I've loved the most in all my career, she really touched my heart. I did have a cry last night when I was told but more of joy than sadness because of all the great memories she gave me."
Thady Gosden - A new dynasty
The pair took advantage of the new rules allowing joint licences for the start of the 2021 Flat season.
As assistant trainer to his father, Thady had already helped team Gosden to win the Dubai Sheema Classic, the world's richest race, which comes with a prize of over £2million.
The new partnership continued to produce the goods at the big Group races, winning the British Champions Fillies' and Mares' Stakes (Emily Upjohn), the Coronation Stakes (Inspiral) and the Nassau Stakes (Nashwa) in 2022.
