Widely acknowledged as the 'sporting and social highlight of the summer', Glorious Goodwood is a quintessentially English event, where Champagne and strawberries are in abundance. It has none of the formality of a great occasion but most certainly all the glamour. Glorious Goodwood has always attracted the very best from the international world of horseracing and the likes of Frankel have graced the Downs in recent years to the delight of race-goers who come from far and wide to experience the Festival's unique atmosphere.
