The Goodwood History
Formerly known as the Goodwood Handicap, The Goodwood was first run 1881, which is earlier than many punters would have thought.
Despite being held in Adelaide, which isn’t as strong as Melbourne and Sydney, The Goodwood continues to attract the best sprinters in Australia.
The Goodwood has been won by the likes of Black Caviar, Santa Ana Lane and Takeover Target – all of which represented Australia overseas.
Because it’s held in May, many of The Championships’ sprinters are in the spelling paddock, which leaves The Goodwood wide open.
The $1 million stake makes it a race worth targeting and it was given Group 1 status in 1980 when Marjoleo was victorious.
Two runners, Mostyn and Musket Belle, have won The Goodwood twice. Trainer Walter Hickenbotham scored five wins from 1901 to 1910.
South Australian rider John Letts also won five times from 1961 to 1984.
The Goodwood Field
The field for the 2020 The Goodwood won’t be confirmed until early May when RISA releases the final field, barrier draw and weights.
The Metropolitan field consists of around 18 runners.
The field is determined by prize money, class and various other handicapping factors.
The Goodwood Form Guide
The Goodwood is held in May, which suits the horses staying in work after The Championships which are held in April.
That opens The Goodwood field up to runners from not only Adelaide, but Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Form out of the Oakleigh Plate and Newmarket has stacked up well in the past but punters should always look for the local runners to win.
One trainer to follow is Tony McEvoy. He’s an Adelaide man who trains in Melbourne. He lined up 2019 winner Despatch and his stable continues to pump out Group 1 types.
The winner of The Goodwood has typically gone on to win other Group 1 races.
Many of its winners have won overseas, including Black Caviar and Takeover Target, which both won at Royal Ascot.
