Experience the Ultimate in Sporting Excellence and Luxury at Glorious Goodwood

Renowned as the highlight of the sporting, fashion and social calendar, the glamorous five day racing Festival at Goodwood returns for the last week of July (26-30 July 2011) to welcome thousands of visitors, from first time race-goers to regular racing enthusiasts, to one of the most beautiful racecourses in the world.

The Glorious Festival kicks off to an exhilarating start on Tuesday 26 July with Sporting Greats Day as sporting heroes gather to celebrate a day dedicated to British sporting excellence. Sponsored by bet365, Sporting Greats Day attracts the great and the good of the sports world to enjoy the first class racing and hospitality at Goodwood.

Wednesday 27 July hosts another exciting day of quality racing, including the Sussex Stakes, which has been announced as part of the inaugural British Champions’ Series, an initiative set up by the British Horseracing Authority.

Ladies Day on Thursday 28 July promises to be a festive day of elegance and beautiful summer fashion and hot trends, while the highlight on the track will be the Goodwood Cup, another race in the British Champions’ Series.

To complement the theme of sport and celebration, Goodwood will also host a special charity cricket match on the historic pitch in front of Goodwood House, led by Chris Tarrant and a team of top celebrities. Organised by the Lord's Taverners, the UK's leading charity cricket club, founded in 1950 to give children a sporting chance, the match will see a celebrity eleven take on a team drawn from racing and cricket.

The Grand Finale races fall on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 July, which are set to be another two of the finest days’ racing staged in Sussex this year. Saturday includes the always competitive Stewards’ Cup and the final day highlight, the third Goodwood race in the Champions’ series, the Group One Blue Square Nassau Stakes, a race that ensures you get to see the world’s finest fillies and mares in action! Glorious Goodwood really is set to be the event of the summer, and not to be missed!
