John Gosden, storming in for the 2012 trainers’ championship
The genius of his profession trainer, John Gosden, has never won the trainers’ championship, but this time around it seems that he has a strong stance against the favourite, Aidan O’Brien, and also the champion trainer for the last two seasons, Richard Hannon.
On 13th October, the 2011 St Leger winning trainer, John Gosden, earned £25,000 with five horses who were placed. The decent success rate has now simmered the burning competition between the two leading trainers, John Gosden and Aidan O’Brien,
to £18,000.
The amount is not highly significant, and with John Gosden racing his favourite under charges the coming weekend, is highly likely to fill in the gap, and surpass the Coolmore trainer.
Spokesman David Stevens said: ‘Camelot's St Leger defeat was a blow to Aidan O'Brien's title hopes, but it was always likely that the huge prizemoney available on Champions Day (on October 20) would decide the outcome of this season's title race.”
‘With (O’Brien’s) Excelebration likely to be a warm favourite for the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes and John Gosden's stable star, Nathaniel, heading for the Arc before a possible appearance against long odds-on favourite Frankel in the Champion Stakes, the
Ballydoyle handler remains in pole position.’
John Gosden is inching in to the eventual championship without any major contribution in the graded races, but is slow and steady with progress in listed races and handicaps. The trend in them too is not of taking back home the winner’s prize money, but
settling with the cash prize of finishing in the frame of the first three positions.
John Gosden has taken up the career earnings to £ 2,761,780 during the current season, and has no representatives in the Betfred Cambridgeshire that carries the prize money worth £160,000. The trainer has been successful in claiming the prize money of the
event thrice before.
Nathaniel and Excelebration are now the hopes for the trainers to surge their seasonal earnings which will eventually decide their luck with the championship.
The John Gosden trained, Nathaniel, was withdrawn from the line-up of the Arc, and ended as the runner-up in the Group 1 Red Mills Irish Champion Stakes.
Running without being the punch bag for Frankel can really work out well for Excelebration.
