The Goodwood 2017 is a Group 1 race held at Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide as part of the South Australia Jockey Club’s premier racing carnival. Taking place in May of each year, The Goodwood is a 1200m sprint run under set weights plus penalties and is now worth $1 million in total prize money making it one of the most lucrative South Australian races.
As the leading sprint race at the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival, the event always attracts a highly competitive field of quality gallopers. Entries may come via a number of earlier races including the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) for fillies & mares at the same track and distance a fortnight earlier. The latest horses to complete the Robert Sangster Stakes – The Goodwood double were Black Caviar (2012) and Platelet (2013).

The Goodwood History
D.O.D. was the inaugural Goodwood winner in 1881 when it was a principal race run over six furlongs. From 1886 to 1888 the race was not held but resumed the next year in 1889 under the same status and distance. In 1942 and 1943 the race did not take place again. The length was converted to 1200m in 1973 and the race?s status was lifted to Group 1 in 1980. Up until 2007 the race was run as a handicap event known as the Goodwood Handicap. Notable recent The Goodwood winners include Black Heart Bart (2016) and super mare Black Caviar (2012).
