Glorious Goodwood

Glorious Goodwood

\"GloriousSituated just five miles north of Chichester, West Sussex, Goodwood racecourse is owned and run by the family of the Duke of Richmond, whose seat is in nearby Goodwood House. Each summer at the end of July the course hosts the Glorious Goodwood meeting, which has become one of the highlights of the British flat racing season. Among the many top quality races hosted are the Susssex Stakes and the Nassau Stakes, which are both Group Ones and contested by the very best horses in training.

The racecourse is unusual with a straight six furlongs the Stewards\' Cup Course, which is uphill for the first furlong and mostly downhill thereafter. There is a tight right-handed loop at the far end of the straight on which there are starts for various longer distance races. These include the 1m 2f Craven Course", the 1m 4f Greatwicke Course and the 1m 6f Bentinck Course. The start for the 2m 5f Cup Course is quite close to the winning post - horses travel outwards on the straight, around the loop and back. Throughout the loop there are severe undulations and sharp turns. The Goodwood Racecourse is used for Flat racing only.

In terms of popularity it probably ranks third behind Royal Ascot and the Epsom Derby meetings.
