Course Description

Goodwood is one of the most idiosyncratic courses in Britain. There is a straight six furlong course and then two elements to the rest of the track. Some races start on a loop and join the straight at the top bend and others join the straight on a lower bend. Due to the nature of the course there is no draw advantage. Here is a guide to Goodwood Racecourse and the other tracks in Britain and Ireland.

History of Glrorious Goodwood

Racing at Goodwood first came about at the dawn on the 19th century as the Duke of Richmond set out a course on Goodwood Estate known as "The Harroway". The first meets were scheduled for the benefit of the Sussex Militia, for whom the Duke was a colonel. The officers set up a annual race which was initially a two-day meeting which was quickly developed to a three day affair after its initial success.

Racing continued at Goodwood but it began to get really popular after the Second World War. During the July meeting on the Tuesday in 1953, 55,000 flocked in their droves to experience the thrill of the races that summer. The event has now gone from strength to strength and has firmly established itself as one of the jewels in the crown of the British flat racing season.
