Goodwood Racecourse

Located in West Sussex, Goodwood is one of the premier racecourses in Britain.

Hosting three Group 1 races throughout the year and numerous Group 2 and Group 3 races, Goodwood is an attractive track which is set to the north of the Iron Age hill fort.

Goodwood features a 1200m straight which is popular with punters and there are many different tracks that encompass the entire course.

Due to being close to the coast, fog can cover the track which makes for an eerie atmosphere.
