U.K. Racing in July ends on a high note with five days of high quality racing known as “Glorious Goodwood” beginning Tuesday, July 27 on TwinSpires.
Second only to Royal Asoct in terms of quality, “Glorious Goodwood” provides plenty of Group rated racing, packed with quality fields.
The one-mile Sussex Stakes (Wednesday) is the traditional highlight of the week (Brigadier Gerard, Giants Causeway and Rock of Gibraltar featured on the list of past winners) whilst the 2008 renewal was won by Henrythenavigator with Ravens Pass in second.
The other Group One contest of the meeting is the Nassau Stakes for Fillies and Mares which has been won by Breeders’ Cup heroines Ouija Board and Midday, whilst top stayers are catered for in the Goodwood Cup which features Le Moss, Ardross, Double Trigger, Persian Punch and Yeats on its hugely impressive roll of honor.
The notable betting event of the week is the six furlong Stewards Cup, a leading Sprint Handicap that regularly attracts large fields.
