It’s one of the most beautiful racecourses in the world – and this week it’s going to be buzzing.
Glorious Goodwood, now known as the Qatar Goodwood Festival, kicks off on today for five days of top-quality racing action.
The Sussex track welcomes world class trainers, jockeys and horses for what is always a blinding festival of betting.
Thirteen Group races are taking place over the course of the festival – including the Group One Qatar Sussex Stakes on Wednesday, which boasts a cool £1 million prize kitty.
This year’s Classic winners Jet Setting, Minding, The Gurkha, Awtaad and Galileo Gold are among 50 entries for the big one.
Another highlight of the festival comes on Saturday in the Nassau Stakes, where £600,000 is up for grabs, and the big race on the first day comes in the Qatar Lennox Stakes – where last year’s winner Toomore is one of more than a dozen runners.
Expect a host of glam women and the Magnolia Cup charity race – for ladies and silk designers – on Thursday.
All-in-all there’s plenty of racing to be getting stuck into – and we’re with you every step of the way.
