FOR racing fans in this wonderful part of the world, there’s no better time of year.
Quite simply, it’s time for Glorious Goodwood.
Five days of the very best in top-class flat racing at one of the world’s most beautiful racecourses. It doesn’t get any better.
As Goodwood’s local paper, the Chichester Observer is proud and delighted to offer unrivalled coverage before, during and after Glorious.
And once again, we are teaming up with the racecourse to offer you the chance to be there free of charge. We have a pair of Richmond Enclosure tickets for each of the five days to give away to lucky Observer readers.
The festival starts on Tuesday when the bet365 Lennox Stakes is the highlight on the track and the Sporting Greats theme runs through the day.
Wednesday sees the festival’s biggest race – the QIPCO Sussex Stakes, when Canford Cliffs and Frankel are due to go head to head in one of the most eagerly-anticipated races in recent memory.
On Thursday, Ladies’ Day features the Artemis Goodwood Cup and Audi King George Stakes, as well as a celebrity ladies’ race featuring some top names from the worlds of fashion, TV and sport.
Friday sees the totesport Mile and the Tanqueray Richmond Stakes, while the final day of the festival brings the dual draws of the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes and the Blue Square Stewards’ Cup.
