John & Thady Gosden | Emma Berry
Champion trainer John Gosden will train with his son, Thady, under a shared licence as soon as the younger Gosden’s papers are approved by the British Horseracing Authority. Thady completed his training modules at the British Racing school and the duo’s joint tenure is set to begin at Clarehaven this season. The news was confirmed to the Racing Post and was suggested on the TDN Writers’ Room podcast on Feb 23.
“I’m lucky I have a son, Thaddeus who’s very interested,” Gosden, who will be 70 this month, said on the podcast. “I have a great team working around me. I’m just very keen over the next two or three years to see the baton passed over, if you like. We’re allowed now in this country to train two people on a licence like they do in Australia…Then hopefully by the time two or three years down the road, they simply won’t need me around anymore.” (by: TDN)
