Glorious Goodwood

Tuesday 1 - Saturday 5 August

The Qatar Goodwood Festival, affectionately known as Glorious Goodwood, is thought of as the highlight of the flat-racing season.

If you have a need for speed the big thrills come on the Friday from the sprint races as the horses reach top speeds of over 40mph over five furlongs on the famous downhill track. It's not just the speed that can get your heart racing, close finishes are not uncommon with horses often winning by less than a length.

The pinnacle of the sprint races is the King George Stakes which has some impressive sprinting names laying claim to the title. But the Sussex Stakes is the big race of the festival, taking place on the Wednesday thoroughbreds of three years and older will compete for the glory.

Start your Glorious Goodwood week on a high by flying to Goodwood by helicopter - book now to avoid disappointment.
