About Goodwood Racecourse: 

Enjoy 19 fixtures in the most anticipated summer season to date at Goodwood Racecourse. From perfectly placed private hospitality, to great value celebration packages and shared dining, racegoers can look forward to a memorable day out with friends and family.  

From the flag fall in April, expect quality action on course. The first fixture, Season Opener, comes under starters orders with two days packed full of behind-the-scenes content providing a fantastic insight into the sport of horseracing. The tempo continues with Family Raceday, which will mark the Queen’s historic reign with joyous Jubilee celebrations and themed attractions for all ages, including a free fairground and much more.  

Home of the flagship Qatar Goodwood Festival, Goodwood Racecourse’s famous five-day meeting in July presents a spellbinding sporting and social occasion like no other. Live music meets sensational style with a plethora of equine superstars, all looking to be crowned on the world stage.  

Featuring no less than 13 Group races, including the Al Shaqab Goodwood Cup, the Qatar Sussex Stakes, often referred to as the ‘Duel on the Downs’, and the cavalry charge that is the Unibet Stewards’ Cup, it’s the place to be seen. Off the track, Tuesday’s Lord Taverners Twenty20 cricket match and Friday’s much anticipated L’Ormarins best-dressed competition showcase on a fabulous supporting card. 

August Bank Holiday Weekend starts with a bang as the popular Friday night fireworks display returns in an explosion of colour set to music before a relaxing weekend that combines live music and free summer entertainment for a wonderfully social occasion. A duo of Midweek Racing fixtures across September culminates in a fitting curtain closer for Season Finale, where seasonal entertainment features toasting marshmallows and hog roasts.
