Goodwood Racecourse is set in beautiful countryside in the south of England,nearest town,Chichester.

Most racetracks in England are left handed,but Goodwood is right handed.

No National Hunt racing here,just top class flat racing.


Sharp track,and downhill sprint course will not suit many horses.

Bend into straight is also sharp and will not suit big galloping types - winners at Epsom,Brighton and Beverley run well here.

Draw bias - sprinters benefit from a low draw,but they must break quickly and not get boxed in.

Draw bias - for races of more than 7 furlongs the opposite draw is needed - high numbers needed to use bend advantage.

5 and 6 furlongs are on a straight course,but longer races use a loop that joins the course in the straight.

Alongside Epsom and Brighton,Goodwood is one of the fastest courses in U.K. for sprinters.

Glorious Goodwood Festival is not just one of the highlights to the flat racing season,but also a prestigious social event.

Glorious Goodwood has been hosted here since 1814,and seems to get bigger year by year.

Top jockey Frankie Dettori rode his very first winner at Goodwood in 1987 on Lizzie Hare.

Set in the South Downs,Goodwood is considered by many racegoers as perhaps the most scenic course anywhere in the world.

They have been racing at Goodwood since 1802 - courtesy of Charles Lennox,3rd Duke of Richmond who established racing here.

Senior citizens can get a discount on admission fees,and accompanied children can get into racetrack for free.

Superb facilities at Goodwood for corporate events,or private weddings and seminars etc.

Perhaps uniquely,long races of 1.4 furlongs + start racing the wrong way up straight,and then make a loop to come back to winning post on normal run in.

Excellent choice of restaurants at Goodwood,and the local sea food outlet is particularly busy - fast foods and snacks also readily available.

Flat racing throughout the summer at Goodwood races - with about 20 meetings every year.

Disabled racegoers are made very welcome at Goodwood,with parking,toilets,lifts and viewing areas all available.

Don't worry if sea fret settles on course,it usually clears quickly.

If you plan to fly into Goodwood by helicopter,please tell the management first (or use airfield located just 2 miles from racetrack).
