Horseracing

Horseracing has been a part of Goodwood since 1802 when the third Duke of Richmond held the first-ever public race meeting here. Fast forward two hundred years and there are 19 race days to experience including the Qatar Goodwood Festival, more affectionately known as Glorious Goodwood. It was King Edward VII who introduced a more relaxed way of dressing at Goodwood, he came every year and embraced a style more suited to that of a garden party, which led to Panama hats becoming a signature Goodwood look. You can dress the part by adorning one of our fabulous Panamas, as well as a choice of beautiful silk ties and horseracing inspired cufflinks.
