VIDEO: New Goodwood season is in sight

We’re three weeks away from the start of a new Goodwood flat-racing season.

A total of 19 race days are in the pipeline, beginning on Saturday, April 30 and continuing with features like the May Festival, Three Friday Nights, the Qatar Goodwood Festival - aka Glorious - and the August Bank Holiday Festival.

Prize money for the season is up and hopes are high for a campaign to savour.

We caught up with racecourse manager Alex Eade to look ahead to the opening fixture and see how the team are getting ready for what they hope will be another memorable summer of racing.

You can also read about the season ahead in the April 14 edition of the Chichester Observer.
