John Gosden (born on 30 March 1951 in Sussex, England) is a racehorse trainer. Having trained over 2,000 winners since his return to England in 1989, including winners of the Breeders' Cup Classic and the Derby, he is generally considered one of the most successful racehorse trainers of his generation.
After graduating from Cambridge University, he began as assistant to champion trainer Noel Murless. After Noel retired, Gosden became assistant to Vincent O'Brien in Ireland. He then moved to California, becoming assistant to Tommy Doyle, before attaining an American Horse Training license in 1979.
