2012 Fixture Announcement

Goodwood are excited to announce the confirmed fixtures for 2012

There have been a few changes to next year’s schedule due to the September weekend (10th & 11th) we hosted in 2011 falling a week later and therefore clashing with Goodwood’s magical step back in time ‘Revival’.

Managing Director Adam Waterworth has worked hard to obtain the right replacements for the September weekend to improve the structure of the Goodwood season. Goodwood will now host Friday 25th May and what was previously a Wednesday in May has now moved to a Thursday (24th May), which with the traditional May Saturday creates three days of back to back high quality racing that will include the four Listed races the Cocked Hat, Height of Fashion, Festival Stakes and Tapster Stakes and total prize money over the 3 days of 300k. This is a return to the May festival meeting that was last run a number of years ago. The final amendment is that Goodwood have gained Friday 24th August, which will be an evening meeting (replacing the Thursday evening) and will lead us nicely onto Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August to create another 3 days of back to back racing. The Saturday will continue to host the Group 2 Betfair Celebration Mile and will offer 412k in prize money.

Managing Director Adam Waterworth commented on these changes ‘Over the last few weeks we have worked hard with the BHA and they have supported us in obtaining these new fixtures, these are currently for 2012 only and we will have to wait to see whether these stay for the future, but to create four feature meetings through the season in May, June, July and August gives our season a real focus. Planning is now well underway for the season ahead and we cannot wait to get started and back racing in May – The team have worked hard over 2011 and delivered another great season and 2012 can only build on this’
