Jeremy Noseda

Jeremy Noseda was born Sept. 17, 1963 in London, England. He had no family in racing, but became smitten by the sport as a schoolboy and learned to ride at the age of 13. He spent school holidays working in the stables of Brian Swift and Jeremy Tree before turning down a place at Cambridge University in order to further his racing education. He was initially employed by John Dunlop, staying for six years, before moving on to work as assistant to John Gosden for five years, including three in California. 

In late 1993, Sheikh Mohammed asked him to join his Godolphin operation. His two years there coincided with Lammtarra winning both the Epsom Derby and the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. With the Sheikh's blessing, he went back to Hollywood Park in California in January of 1996 with 15 horses in his care.Despite winning with his first runner and three of his next four starters, he failed to attract new owners and returned to Britain at the end of 1997.

He had the opportunity to buy the renowned Shalfleet Stables in Newmarket, from the retiring Paul Kelleway. Noseda has a staff of six that assists him with the operation. He made an immediate impact thanks to Wannabe Grand, who gave him his first Group 1 success when landing the Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket in October 1998 and finished second in the following spring's One Thousand Guineas (G1) ...

Noseda earned his first Breeders' Cup victory with his first starter when Wilko captured the 2004 Breeders' Cup Juvenile.
