Two early scratchings from the original ...

The Goodwood 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 Darley Goodwood 2017 ran on Saturday May 20 at Morphettville Racecourse.

2017 The Goodwood Field

The Goodwood race field attracts a smart line-up of sprinters, many coming out of lead-up sprint races held in Melbourne or Sydney during the autumn. Alternatively fillies and mares may have a lead-up into The Goodwood at the track and distance two weeks prior in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m). Brisbane winter racing could also be on the agenda for sprinters in The Goodwood field.

The official The Goodwood 2017 field and barriers are set for release on Tuesday May 16, 2017 and will be announced below.

The 2017 The Goodwood Final Field drew a capacity number of starters (20) plus three emergencies, the line-up led by last year’s winner Black Heart Bart drawn in barrier two, which he jumped from to win 12 months ago. Also in the mix are the likes of the rails-drawn Riziz shooting for a third win on the trot and Mick Price’s Robert Sangster Stakes winning mare Secret Agenda.

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).
