[Infographic] Glorious Goodwood

Order a lobster and crack open the wine, it’s time for Glorious Goodwood and these celebrations go much further than the horse racing.

While the experts study the form and judge the going on this magnificent five-day event, you can sit back and relax in the gorgeous stands and sip one of 10,000 cups of tea sold over the marathon meet.

Goodwood is all about the experience and for the horses there’s nothing more enjoyable than leading a pack of 49 through the finishing post on Wednesday’s Qipco Sussex Stakes. Trainer Saeed Bin Suroor is hoping for his fourth trophy in this race and fans should back his horses to perform on the one-mile surge.

Another man guaranteed success is six-time champion jockey Kieren Fallon, who at 48 is still one of the greatest jockeys of the modern era and destined for more victories again this summer.
