Gosden has trained the winners of over 100 Group 1 races in the United States, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. He is generally considered one of the finest and most successful racehorse trainers of his generation. His reputation for honesty and openness has led him to be called “one of the sport’s great communicators”.

He then won the Prix Maurice de Gheest in France with May Ball. “She has been going well at home and we were expecting a big run”, Gosden said afterwards, “It’s a wonderful advertisement for keeping a five-year-old in training”. He also won with at Chester with Treble Heights for football player Michael Owen, and the Solario Stakes with Foss Way. He also won the Strensall Stakes with Binary File and the Royal Lodge Stakes with Al Jadeed.

Gosden then won the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot at York with Plea Bargain. “He’s a lovely improving horse and the mile and a half is no problem”, said Gosden. Playful Act won again, this time in the Lancashire Oaks. “It’s been a long road back, but it’s been worth it”, said Gosden after the race. Playful Act would go on to be considered one of the finest broodmares in recent history.

He later won the Prestige Stakes with Nannina. “She’ll improve a lot”, said Gosden. Nannina then won the very prestigious Fillies' Mile at Ascot. “They set a proper pace and Kieran had Jimmy in the box, but he wasn’t going to go there and she was well ridden”, he said afterwards.

He also won with Raven's Pass, who was becoming widely regarded as a promising horse. He then won the Great Voltigeur Stakes with Lucarno. “The Leger could be the place to go”, said Gosden speaking of Lucarno afterwards,”He’s got a big stride and knows how to use it”. He then won the Solario Stakes with Raven's Pass, breaking the track record. “I think he’s a good horse and I like him a lot”, said Gosden afterwards, comparing him favorably to two other horses he'd won the race with, Foss Way and Windsor Knot.

Amidst much anticipation, Gosden took Lucarno to Doncaster, and won the very prestigious St. Leger Stakes. “He is a really, really good horse but was a little immature as a two-year-old, which is why he didn’t run”, said Gosden afterwards,”He worked well in the autumn last year and has run nothing but fabulous races all year”. “He showed talent last year but I wanted to save him”, Gosden also said, “He’s done nothing but improve all season”.

Gosden then won two major races in the same day, the Celebration Mile with Raven's Pass the Great Voltigeur Stakes with Centennial. He then enjoyed more success in the May Hill Stakes at Doncaster with Rainbow View, who continued her unbeaten run. “She has done it very well and I couldn’t be more pleased with her”, he said. He then won the Prix Minerve-Shadwell in France with Dar Re Mi, even though the ground was considered to reduce her prospects, “she would appreciate good going the most” Gosden said.

He then had another stunning day at Ascot, winning the showpiece Queen Elizabeth II Stakes with Raven's Pass and the Fillies' Mile with Rainbow View, completing the double for the second time. “We had three plans going in and got down to one in the end”, said Gosden. Of Rainbow View he said “I didn’t train her for a test of stamina, be she’s all heart and tough as well”. Winning the Timform Million with Donativum allowed Gosden to supplement the two-year-old for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf at Santa Anita. He continued a great season by winning the Cambridgeshire with Tazeez.

He then won the Jockey Club Stakes with Bronze Cannon, and had a double with Cadre and Ithbaat. He then won the prestigious Lockinge Stakes with Virtual, beating Alexandros. “It was a fabulous finish”, said Gosden, “Twice Over and Pressing took the pace to test Paco Boy’s stamina and it played into our favour. He had his head down when it mattered”.

There was more success for Gosden with Dar Re Mi, as she won the Yorkshire Oaks, beating Sariska. He then won the Washington Singer Stakes with Azmeel, and the prestigious Matron Stakes with Rainbow View. Gosden was happy with the performance, “She did it well today and, similar to some good fillies I’ve had before, she has just taken some time to come to herself this season”. He also won the Prix Dollar in France.

Almost immediately, Gosden's choice was proved correct as Buick gave Dar Re Mi a fantastic ride to win the prestigious Dubai Sheema Classic. “She was given a beautiful ride by William Buick”, said Gosden, “He knows what he is doing and he has a lot of brains”. He also talked of the difficulties of training in winter, “Keeping her warm in England wasn’t easy, so it was quite a challenge”.

Gosden then won the Arlington Million with Debussy, beating Gio Ponti. Buick delivered a fantastic ride. “He rides cleverly”, said Gosden, “He doesn’t panic in a race”. He also won the Doncaster Cup with Samuel.

Gosden won his fourth St. Leger and second with William Buick as Masked Marvel very impressively beat Brown Panther. After the fantastic performance Gosden said “From the day I saw him as a yearling I thought he was a Leger type”. “He was a powerful little guy even then and he’s got a great pedigree for the job”. Very soon after, Gosden also won the Irish St. Leger with Duncan. Gosden then enjoyed further success when Elusive Kate won the very prestigious Prix Marcel Boussac at Longchamp, beating a fantastic field including Fire Lily and Zantenda.

Gosden is considered to be more open and informative than some other trainers, and is called “one of the sport’s great communicatiors”. His television interviews are often praised,“Gosden is Cary Grant in Ernie Els’s body. He is the Big Easy with a sly smile, a wry wit, and a charismatic charm”.

In addition to music, Gosden is a keen fan of art and opera, “Some people get on that narrow-gauge railway and have nothing except racing to talk about, but it would drive me mad. I guess I’d be happiest if they built a racecourse in Hyde Park…but from here I can dart into London, 60 miles, go to the opera, the ballet, see a band”.

Gosden has said of his position, “You have to move along gracefully if you can, and hopefully with a following wind, with common sense, a sense of reality, humility and a bit of history”. His office is decorated with pictures of some of the most successful horses he has trained,“Paintings of champion horses - the filly Ryafan, last year’s Breeders’ Cup hero Raven's Pass – look down from the walls”.


He then won the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot with Bronze Cannon. The horse, known as ‘The Mighty Mouse’ for his small stature, beat Campanologist. He then won the Pretty Polly Stakes with Dar Re Mi. “She stays well and wants a mile and a half, but luckily we got control” said Fortune, the winning jockey. Showcasing also won well. Gosden also won the Prix Eugene Adam in France with Debussy. Later, Showcasing won the Gimcrack Stakes. “He is very much like his father and has bags of speed”, said Gosden.


Gosden was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2017 New Year Honours for services to horseracing and training.


Gosden finished second in the 2016 Trainer's championship winning the Nell Gwyn Stakes with Nathra, the John Guest Bengough Stakes with Shalaa, the Flying Childers Stakes with Ardad and the Hungerford Stakes with Richard Pankhurst. He also won the Lillie Langtry Stakes with California, The Dante Stakes with Wings of Desire, the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes with So Mi Dar, The Tattersalls Millions 3-Y-O Trophy with Linguistic and the Earl of Sefton Stakes with Mahsoob. He also won the British Champions Fillies' and Mares' Stakes with Journey at Ascot on British Champions Day.


Gosden's 2015 season saw him become Champion Trainer again, with Golden Horn and Jack Hobbs generally considered his best horses of the season. He won the Derby and the Eclipse with Golden Horn, the Prix Morny and the Middle Park Stakes with Shalaa, and the Prix de Diane with Star of Seville. He also won the Irish Derby with Jack Hobbs, after Hobbs had finished second in the Epsom Derby behind Golden Horn. Later in the season, Golden Horn won the Irish Champion Stakes and the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. “Today you saw the real Golden Horn", said jockey Frankie Dettori. "He put to bed a great Arc field like a true champion. Over the last furlong and a half it would have been impossible for any horse to get near me. I pressed the button and he flew. Think of the horses he has beaten and beaten well. I spent the last furlong enjoying myself. He has given me some tremendous pleasure and is probably the best horse that I’ve ridden.”


Gosden won eight Group One races in 2014, including the Irish 2,000 Guineas with Kingman and The Oaks with Taghrooda. Kingman also won the St. James's Palace Stakes, the Sussex Stakes and the Prix Jacques Le Marois. He also won the Prince of Wales's Stakes with The Fugue, the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes with Taghrooda and the Nassau Stakes with Sultanina. In November 2014, Kingman won the Cartier Award for Cartier Horse of the Year and Cartier Champion Three-year-old Colt. Taghrooda won the award for Cartier Champion Three-year-old Filly.


Gosden won six Group One races, and over 100 other races in 2013. He won the Falmouth Stakes with Elusive Kate, the Nassau Stakes with Winsili and the Yorkshire Oaks with The Fugue. Elusive Kate also won the Prix Rothschild, The Fugue won the Irish Champion Stakes, and Seek Again won the Hollywood Derby. Gosden was British Champions Series champion trainer in 2013.


Gosden's 2012 season has been one of his most successful. He won the Earl of Sefton Stakes with Questioning and the Musidora Stakes with The Fugue. At Royal Ascot, he was Champion Trainer, winning the Windsor Forest Stakes with Joviality and the Albany Stakes with Newfangled. He then won the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot with Fallen For You, the Wolverton Stakes with Gatewood, and the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes with Camborne.

He then won the Nassau Stakes with The Fugue. He also won the Great Voltigeur Stakes with Thought Worthy. In October, Gosden won the Tattersalls Millions Trophy with Ghurair, and the Geelong Cup with Gatewood. Gosden was British Champion Trainer in 2012.


Gosden's 2011 season continued with more success as Gertrude Bell won the Warwick Fillies’ Stakes and Investissement won the ToteScoop6 Handicap at Goodwood. He also won the prestigious Musidora Stakes with Jovality. He then won the Yorkshire Cup with Duncan, with another excellent ride from William Buick. Gosden described Duncan as “an enigmatic character” with “a ton of talent”. He then won the prestigious King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot with Nathaniel. “He’s a very nice horse”, said Gosden. He also won the Wolferton Handicap at Royal Ascot with Beachfire. “We put the headgear on him and it worked well”, Gosden explained.


In early 2010, Gosden signed young jockey William Buick to ride for his stable. The decision was widely questioned, Buick was relatively untested at the highest level and Jimmy Fortune was widely regarded as a competent and effective jockey. However, Gosden is widely viewed as a good judge, the only other rider he has ever retained (apart from Buick) is Frankie Dettori. “I didn’t have a retainer and there has been no falling out”, said Fortune, who still often rides for Gosden when Buick is not available.


Gosden's 2009 season began well. He won the Kentucky Derby Challenge with Mafaz, and the Lincoln Handicap with Expresso Star. Then Neeham won the valuable 3-Y-O Trophy at Newmarket. “I really do like these sales races”, Gosden said “and Donativum’s defeat of Crowed House last year turned out to be a cracker”. He then won the Earl of Sefton Stakes with Tazeez, for the same owner.


The 2008 season was an excellent one for Gosden. On the key Guineas trial day, he won four of the day's races with Infallible winning the prestigious Nell Gwyn Stakes, along with Virtual, Prohibit and Pampas Cat. Gosden then won his fourth Sandown Classic Trial with Centennial. Soon after, Michita won the Ribblesdale Stakes and Lucarno, winner of the 2007 St. Leger, won again in the Princess of Wales Stakes. He had another double at Newmarket with Upton Grey and Rainbow View. “She has a high cruising speed and looks like she has some class”, said Gosden. Next, Gosden won the York Stakes with, beating Campanologist. Racer Forever also won the Criterion Stakes for Gosden and Fortune. A successful season continued as Rainbow View won the prestigious Sweet Solera Stakes.


The 2007 season started well for Gosden, but it became even better as he won the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot with Royal Oath. After the race, the Racing Post crowned him “Royal Ascot’s ‘Mr. Reliable’”. He also won the Windsor Forest Stakes at Royal Ascot with Nannina. It was the second time she had won at Royal Ascot. “She seems to find her best form at this course and it was a great training performance”, said winning jockey Jimmy Fortune,”All I had to do was steer”.


The 2005 season started well for Gosden. He won the Magnolia Stakes with Day Flight. Frankie Dettori, riding second, had carried them both across the course in the straight. “You wouldn’t think he used to work for me!”, Gosden joked.


In 2003, he won the July Cup and the Nunthorpe Stakes with Oasis Dream.


The 2002 season began well for Gosden. One of his first major victories came when Zenda beat Firth of Lorne in the prestigious Poule d'Essai des Pouliches in France. Coming off the rail in the straight and holding off challenges, the victory was impressive. “Zenda had been working very well at home”, said Gosden, “The filly would have won in even better style if she had settled earlier”.


In late 1999, it was announced that Gosden would move to Manton for the beginning of the 2000 season. He quickly enjoyed major successes, in May 2000, he won the 1,000 Guineas Stakes with Lahan. Later in the season, he won both Group One races held at Ascot with Observatory in Queen Elizabeth II Stakes and Crystal Music in the Fillies' Mile. In 2001, he won the Prix de la Forêt with Mount Abu, and the Prix Marcel Boussac with Sulk.
