Goodwood Racecourse Guide

Glorious Goodwood CourseIt is not called Glorious Goodwood 2011 for no reason as the Goodwood Racecourse is set in the beautiful Sussex downs and on a clear day you can see for miles and has the most lovely aspect and enclosures for the public viewing and it is one of the best tracks in the country. Now ask a jockey and he would not be so complementary as on ground that is good to firm there can be a massive problem finding your run in the final couple of furlongs as it can be difficult to get out in big fields and many is the time you have to sit and suffer.

Horse Racing Action at Goodwood

The straight course is run over races of five and sixth furlongs and this is generally a very fair but very quick straight as it is mainly downhill all the way and so they are flat out to the post. The round course has its own issues and this is mainly for those drawn high have to make the long way round on ground which is on the quick side as on the soft they all come stand side so low is a high draw is an advantage for favoured runners in the Glorious Goodwood betting.

Once you come round the bend at the top of the hill it is a steep slope down for a couple of furlongs and you have to have a horse that handles this decline and then you have to have a reasonable position in order to get out from the rail to make your challenge.
