The role of Godolphin Group CEO, presently filled by Joe Osborne, has been removed from the international operation’s power structure, Godolphin stated on their website on Tuesday evening.

The statement read: Godolphin announces that the role of Group CEO has been discontinued from March 2018.  Responsibility for each operation around the world is now vested in the local managing director and his board of directors. As such Joe Osborne has resumed his role as managing director, Godolphin Ireland, and, in addition to his role as a leading public trainer, John Gosden remains responsible for Godolphin bloodstock purchases.

Osborne, who took John Ferguson’s place as CEO last June when Ferguson resigned, will resume his Irish duties.
