Glorious weather over the Sussex Downs is perfect for racegoers, but means the racecourse’s turf needs a little helping hand from man to keep it in tip-top condition.

With that in mind clerk of the course Seamus Buckley and his team will be watering the straight six furlongs tonight in bid to keep the surface from becoming too fast.

Buckley said: “It’s been dry for 36 hours and is forecast to be dry again tomorrow, so we are watering the entire straight with six to eight millimetres of water.

“The rails on the bottom bend are being moved to the inside to create fresh ground.

“It’s been another fine day’s racing, the crowd seems happy, the competitors are happy and the weather has been perfect for watching horses in this wonderful setting.”


Age Of Aquarius, who pulled up lame while leading the field during this afternoon’s running of the Artemis Goodwood Cup, was taken to Arundel Veterinary Hospital following the race.

Giving an update on the four-year-old colt, clerk of the course Seamus Buckley, said: “I’ve spoken to Aidan O’Brien [the horse’s trainer] who is satisfied with all the procedures that have been carried out. The horse has gone to Arundel Veterinary Hospital and is being dealt with accordingly. He has been X-rayed, but we have yet to hear about the findings.”


Jockey Tom Queally was suspended for a day after being found guilty of careless riding aboard Flame Of Gibraltar in the Moet Hennessy Fillies’ Stakes.

The suspension takes place on August 12.

Commentator and Channel 4 racing presenter Mike Cattermole is king when it comes to drawing stalls for Saturday’s £100,000 bluesq.com Stewards’ Cup.

Four times he has chosen stalls on behalf of winning trainers, and today he gained two prime slots for horses in the care of Roger Charlton, nailing 22 for Run For The Hills, the first of 28 names drawn, and 25 for last year’s winner Genki, the fifth out.

Cattermole said: “I’ve picked out the stalls for all three of Roger’s winners [Harmonic Way 1999, Patavellian 2003, and Genki] and also for Bond Boy [2002] on behalf of Reg Bond and Bryan Smart, which is pretty extraordinary. I was a bit worried when Run For The Hills came out first because I wanted to be among some pace. Without knowing where the pace horses are going, it is hard to get the right call. I was glad to see Jonny Mudball going in 24 which should help Genki in the next stall.

“The ground is said to be slightly quicker on the far side, but it may be chewed up there by Saturday which could help those drawn low. As they say, it’s the luck of the draw, but I’ve spoken to Roger and he’s happy.”

Today’s draw, which was piloted by Nick Luck and drawn by Steve Evans, manager of Blue Square Bet Premier League side Crawley Town, gives trainers and owners the chance to nominate stalls of their choice for one of the biggest handicaps of the year - usually the draw for races is performed by a computer. Luck began by announcing that Turftrax readings for Goodwood’s six-furlongs straight course gave a mark of 8.5 for the far side and 8.2 on the stands’ side, suggesting horses drawn high would gain a minor advantage, although he added that light rain was forecast and could affect the figures by Saturday afternoon.

Other trainers present included Richard Fahey, who has five runners, but who had to wait until the 18th name was drawn, Castles In The Air (stall 2), before taking a pick. Another Fahey runner, Prime Exhibit, was the last name drawn and left with stall 13.

Fahey was seeing the bright side in being drawn late, saying: “I didn’t have much choice and had to go low, but it takes a bit of pressure off. We’re happy enough because there is pace low. Good ground would be ideal for all of them.”

Tom Dascombe, who has two runners, said: “I arrived just in time to gain stall 24 for Noverre To Go and I’m happy with that, although it turns out a lot of the pace horses are drawn low. Godolphin’s Ancien Regime (23) is alongside and should go on in first-time blinkers, so if the ground stays quick he’s got a chance. Jonny Mudball (19) went up 9lb for his last win, which was ridiculous, and he’s going to struggle, but at least we’re in the top half of the draw.”

Kevin Ryan, represented by a trio in the race, said: “They all came out late and the high stalls I wanted had all gone. Advanced (14) has gained a middle berth which gives him the option to go either way, and when Parisian Pyramid (1) came out I opted to give him the chance of running up the rail. Everymanforhimself (8) came out late so we had no choice but to go low. Because I’m drawn low, I’d be glad to see some rain to even the going out on both sides.”

Local trainer William Knight, whose runner Palace Moon (20), was ninth out of the draw said: “Looking at the Turftrax readings the far side is slightly quicker and that’s where we’ll be, and there is pace and fancied horses around us, so I’m happy. I didn’t want to be first out and I avoided that, and I wouldn’t mind a bit of rain, because he would handle that although he has won on firm.”

Dandy Nicholls, who won the race five years ago with Gift Horse, said: “We’ve got three in there and two, Sonny Red (7) and Striking Spirit (5), are drawn low, while Evens And Odds (18) is higher. That’s fine, and they are all good horses who will make the best of their way, although we would have liked to be up the middle where there are one or two front-runners.”

Updated Blue Square+ Nassau Stakes odds

9/4 Midday, 7/2 Stacelita, 7/2 Rosanara, 6/1 Strawberrydaiquiri, 10/1 Antara, 14/1 Contredanse, 16/1 Barshiba


Last year’s winner Midday heads a high-class renewal of the Group One Blue Square Nassau Stakes at Goodwood on Saturday with seven runners bidding to land the prestigious prize.

Midday gave Henry Cecil his sixth training success in the Blue Square Nassau Stakes and went on to land the Grade One Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Santa Anita. She kicked off this season at York in May when she finished second to Sariska in the Group Two Middleton Stakes.

Sir Michael Stoute has saddled seven previous winners of the famous race and Strawberrydaiquiri, winner of the Group Two Windsor Forest Stakes at Royal Ascot will bid to enhance that record.

No French-trained filly has ever won the Blue Square Nassau Stakes but two will attempt to put that straight this year.

Last season’s Group One Prix Marcel Boussac heroine Rosanara, trained by the Aga Khan for Alain de Royer Dupre, has gone on to finish second in the Group One Prix de Diane on her latest start.

The four-year-old Stacelita racked up three Group One successes last season for trainer Jean-Claude Rouget and was a comfortable winner of the Group Three La Coupe at Longchamp on her latest start.

The one-eyed Barshiba also heads to Goodwood in good form, having landed the Group Two Lancashire Oaks for a second consecutive year earlier this monh.

High-class German performer Antara made a winning debut on her first start for Godolphin in the Group Three Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom on June 5. She went on to finish third to Strawberrydaiquiri in the Group Two Windsor Forest Stakes at Royal Ascot

It is 25 years since Newmarket trainer Luca Cumani last won the Blue Square Nassau Stakes (with Free Guest in 1985) and the rapidly-improving Contredanse represents him, having won the Group Two Italian Oaks on her most recent run.

The crowd on Wednesday came to 16,663, which was 1,133 up (+7 per cent) on last year’s attendance of 15,530 for the second day of Glorious Goodwood.

Both advance bookings and on-the-day admissions increased over 2009 levels and hospitality sales are 17 per cent ahead of last year through the week, with annual membership also strong.

On-course cash totepool turnover at Goodwood came to £406,090 yesterday (£419,115 in 2009).


Goodwood today acknowledged trainer John Dunlop's outstanding contribution to racing with the presentation of its Lifetime Achievement Award.

The son of a surgeon, Dunlop was born in 1939 and after spending some time as assistant to Gordon Smyth, he took out his first training licence in 1966. Within weeks he was celebrating his first ever winner, Tamino at Newmarket.

He was champion trainer in 1995 and over the last four and a half decades has established himself as one of the greatest practitioners of his art that racing both in the UK and across Europe has ever had the privilege to see with more than 3,400 winners.

The list of his big race winners provides an honours board of English racing at the highest level. He has won the Derby twice; the Oaks twice; the One Thousand Guineas three times; the St Leger three times; the Coronation Cup twice; the July Cup twice; the Gold Cup; the Eclipse Stakes and so many other big races in Britain.

Beyond these shores, he has been a pioneer in sending horses overseas to bag Classics and other big races in Ireland, France, Italy and Germany.

Much closer to home, he began this week having sent out no fewer than 194 winners at Goodwood, 41 of them at the Festival Meeting and has been an influential member of the Goodwood Board of Directors for many years.

An OBE, Dunlop, who is nursing a broken foot and is unable to attend this year's Festival Meeting, received his award from His Grace, the Duke of Richmond, at a luncheon at Molecomb House on the Goodwood estate today.

“John has made an enormous contribution, as a trainer, member of the Pattern Race Committee and an ambassador for our sport, and in raising many hundreds of thousands of pounds for racing's charitable organisations without ever seeking one ounce of recognition,” said His Grace, who presented Dunlop with a painting by the celebrated French equestrian artist, Hubert de Watrigant.


Geoff Lester, the distinguished racing journalist and former President of the Horserace Writers and Photographers Association, is the recipient of this year's Goodwood Press and Media Award.

Lester joined the Sporting Life from school in 1964 as a 16-year-old. He started reporting from racecourses eight years later and in 1985 was made the paper's chief racing correspondent, a post he held until its much lamented demise in 1998.

A great wit with an irrepressible sense of fun, his humour comes from his South London background and it was with great pride that he took his place among the sport's elite reporters when given Lord Derby's award for racing journalism in 1988.

His distinctive and colourful writing style has enabled him to maintain a career as a freelance over the past decade or so, and he has embellished that roll with stints as a broadcaster, jockey's agent and trainer's website manager.

Always eager to help his colleagues, he became President of the Horserace Writers and Photographers Association in 2004 and, during his four years of office, helped raise its profile and introduced an element of showbiz to the showcase annual lunch.

Commenting on the award, Rod Fabricius, Goodwood's Managing Director, said: “It recognises a life-long contribution to the promotion of the sport and Goodwood in particular, and is a tangible expression of our appreciation to Geoff who has more than fulfilled that criteria over a long period of time.”

Wiltshire trainer Richard Hannon runs five horses at Glorious Goodwood today, and needs just a single winner to hit the 200-mark at the Sussex racecourse.

Yesterday Hannon trained his 50th winner at the festival meeting - King Torus, who won the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes - and while it is not a foregone conclusion he will reach another landmark this afternoon his horses are in great form and stable jockey Richard Hughes is riding with such confidence that all his runners have to be considered potential winners.

Hannon and Hughes, who have shared four winners during the first two days of the meeting and lead the respective trainers’ and jockeys’ table (the latter sponsored by Racing UK), team up today with: Invincible Soul (2.10), Elnawin (2.45), Free Agent (3.25) and Kalahaag (4.35). Rio Mist (5.10), another Hannon/Hughes hopeful, was withdrawn this morning, although the trainer also runs Gene Autry (5.10), for whom Pat Dobbs was the original jockey booking.

Free Agent, who tackles the Artemis Goodwood Cup, is owned by Her Majesty The Queen, while Kalahaag is also associated with a form of ‘royalty’ - his owner is Benny Andersson, a member of Swedish superstars Abba.

Hughes meanwhile, is closing in on a double hundred of his own - he needs three more winners to reach his ton for the season and also to achieve a century of firsts at Goodwood.

Lambourn trainer Barry Hills, who needs a single winner to achieve 50 at the festival fixture, has withdrawn Ransom Note (2.10) but runs Cultivar (2.10) and Gunner Lindley (5.10).

Veteran horses rarely run at Glorious Goodwood, let alone win, so the odds are against teenager Caracciola in today’s feature race. The 13-year-old runs in the Artemis Goodwood Cup, a race which, since 1945, has been claimed once by a horse whose age was in double figures. That was the great Persian Punch, a ten-year-old when successful in 2003.

First Race Winner’s Quotes
TurfTV Summer Vase Handicap


Beachfire’s habit of starting lazily and finishing fast is becoming well known, but with four wins from five it cannot be said it is unproductive.

Today he came from a long way off the pace to snatch victory on the line, providing jockey William Buick and trainer John Gosden with their first Glorious Goodwood successes of the week. Buick said of tardy-starting Beachfire: “You cannot force him to do anything - he does it the way he wants to do it, and as long as he keeps winning that’s good enough for me. I gave him a back-hander coming into the turn because I wanted him to do more than he was doing, but he finished well and the step up to a mile and a quarter has helped him.”

Gosden said the three-year-old was a pretty relaxed member of his stables, commenting: “He’s so laid back he stops for a cup of coffee at the Clock Tower [in Newmarket High Street] on his way to the gallops.”

Of today’s late burst by Beachfire, who races in the colours of Princess Haya of Jordan, Gosden said: “That’s his style of racing and William was very clear that he would be back in last or nearly last [in the early stages] and so we made a plan to sweep wide into the straight and come down the middle.

“I tried in his work at home to change his running style but it did no good because that’s his way and it’s best to leave him to it. We could step him up in trip now because as you step up in grade it gets more difficult to keep giving them 20 lengths.

“He’s a half-brother to Major Cadeaux who was a miler, and his dad [Indian Haven] was a miler, but it looks like this horse wants to go further so we’ll let him go further. He’s going to be forced up in class.”



Trainer Alan Jarvis continued a frustrating run of seconds when Right Step lost out to Beachfire in a photo for the TurfTV Summer Vase Handicap.

“I think we’ve had 12 seconds and 13 thirds this year and just three winners,” said Jarvis, whose last winner came 61 days ago. “They are running good races but we could just do with another winner.

“I thought this horse would run a good race today. He travelled well when Tom Queally rode him at Royal Ascot but Tom said it was the roughest race he’d ever ridden in. The horse came back with a leg swollen like a football.

“He’s a good kid riding (Harry Bentley) him today and the horse might go to York for a handicap there.”

Richard Hannon, trainer of third-placed Invincible Soul and fourth-placed Cumulus Nimbus, said: “Invincible Soul ran a good race although I think Hughesie hit the front too soon while the other horse ran a steamer in fourth, I don’t know where he came from.”



Eight-year-old Borderlescott proved himself better than ever when, partnered by Kieren Fallon for the first time, getting up to take the Group Two Audi King George Stakes by half a length.

The gelding, who won the 2006 bluesq.com Stewards’ Cup at Goodwood, is now set to head to York to try and win a third Group One Nunthorpe Stakes. He was also second and third in the Stewards’ Cup in subsequent years.

“He’ s an unbelievable horse. He is eight now and you are thinking ‘oh crikey, when is he going to lose that bit of dash’ but he has been coming to hand as he always does at this time of year. I think that he is better now than ever, to be honest,” said Bastiman.

“I think that he has to run against top-class horses and have a fast pace because he does tend to idle a bit when he hits the front. He is getting a bit older now and it takes a bit longer to wind him up but, once he gets wound up, he goes. The engine is still there and that is the main thing.

“I knew that Kieren hadn’t really gone for him two furlongs out and he is a better horse off the bridle. He gave him a couple of slaps and he’s gone into overdrive. Kieren rode him to perfection, just how we wanted.

“He just has this will to win and I can’t wait for the Nunthorpe now. I saw Equiano in the July Cup and he’s a superb horse, a real gutsy animal, but we’ll have to take him on at York and hopefully he can give us a nice lead.

“I’m sorry for Neil (Callan), who missed the ride because he got a one-day ban at a Micky Mouse meeting, which seems very unfair. I’ll have to talk to the owner about who rides at York, maybe we’ll just have to toss a coin to decide.”

Fallon added: “He has been a great servant for the Bastiman family and the few jockeys who have ridden him - he has had quite a few. I was dying to get the ride today and he made it easy for me and won quite well at the finish.

“I was stuck in a bit of a pocket behind and I had to wait for a stride before I could switch. We got a lucky ride down the outside and he did it quite comfortably.

“You wouldn’t think that he had a race. He doesn’t use any gas at all and he is totally switched off. I nearly had to push him down to the post, whereas most sprinters are using up most of their energy before the race. This lad doesn’t do anything but, as soon as he gets into the gate, he knows he has a race on his hands and he lightens up.

“I rode a lot of winners at places like Catterick and Pontefract for Robin when I first came over as an apprentice. In fact I think someone didn’t turn up for his ride one day at Pontefract so Robin offered me the ride and it went from there.”

Second Race Placed Quotes
Audi King George Stakes


Aptly-named Group Therapy has been spending additional time in Jeremy Noseda’s lorry, rather than in his psychiatrist’s chair.

Trips to the races with his stablemates, even on days when he has not been in action, has helped the horse to settle, said Noseda after Group Therapy had been beaten just half a length into second by Borderlescott in the Audi King George Stakes.

The five-year-old joined his current trainer this season after a spell with Nick Littmoden that began successfully and tailed off into abject disappointment with three very poor efforts towards the end of last year. The change of scene has worked however and, after a win and place, for Noseda he again pointed his toe today.

Noseda said: “He’s run a huge race, although the draw didn’t quite help me. I’ve only had him since the beginning of the year but he’s run a lifetime best. I’ll speak to the owners but we may have a pop at the Nunthorpe Stakes or we may go a level below and see if we can get a stakes win out of him. He’s a dead five-furlong horse and this five suited him well - at Sandown last time the stiff finish just found him out.

“We’ve worked a few things to settle him down, although when he gets to the races he’s very, very edgy. Since his last run he’s been to the races four times, walked around the paddock and then taken home. He’s run three times this year but must have been to the races another 12 or 13 times.

“In this game, the harder you work the more reward you get.”

Ed McMahon was no less pleased with third-placed Astrophysical Jet, a stoutly-bred filly who seems to have found her niche at five furlongs. McMahon said: “She was the first three-year-old over the line and has run a cracking race. She’s only been beaten narrowly by a Group One winner [Borderlescott].

“ We’ve found her trip now - I’ve been trying to get as much distance out of her as possible because of her breeding [by miler Dubawi out of a Rainbow Quest mare] but we’ve had to take the bull by the horns and bring her back to five.

“I went to the sales to buy a Guineas filly and ended up buying a sprinter, although on breeding it was impossible to tell. That said Dubawi has thrown a few sprinters and this is a good one.

“We’ve got a couple of options for her - the Flying Five at the Curragh or a stakes race at Longchamp which is worth 20,000 euros more.”

Graham Gibbon, the filly’s jockey, was in trouble with the stewards for interfering with Starfish Bay inside the final furlong and causing a ripple of interference. He was judged to have ridden carelessly in allowing his mount to drift left and, because he has been suspended for 21 days for interference in the last six months, the jockey has been referred to the British Horseracing Authority.

The steward also looked into the fall of Liam Jones off Triple Aspect in the final half-furlong and found it was caused by the saddle slipping. Jones was unscathed.

Third Race Winner’s Quotes
Artemis Goodwood Cup


Sussex trainer William Knight was the toast of Goodwood after his Illustrious Blue gained victory in one of the highlights of the season for staying horses.

Illustrious Blue, ridden by Jim Crowley, won the £100,000 Group Two Artemis Goodwood Cup in the colours of Ian and Pam Bendelow, after a sustained effort that saw him beat Electrolyser and Purple Moon by a length and a quarter and two and three quarter lengths.

Knight, who has leased stables at Angmering Park, the home of Lady Ann Herries, for the past five years, and now trains 45 horses, said: “He’s shown today he’s one of the best stayers around, and the plan to come to Goodwood, his favourite track, has paid off. I’m delighted.”

Illustrious Blue was winning his seventh race at Goodwood from 14 outings, and his third at the Glorious meeting. Knight said: “When you’re a hold-up horse you need a nice long straight to make up ground, and at Goodwood he’s able to wind himself up with enough time to get to the post. On some of the sharper tracks he doesn’t really get there.

“He’s now settling so well in races, he handles the undulations and travels well, so that’s probably why he runs so well here.

“I am so pleased to come back to Glorious Goodwood for a third time with him and it has been a different trip on each occasion - what a star! Jim gave him a lovely ride and am delighted.

“I probably regrettably should have tried him over two miles last year but we have had a fantastic run with him and he keeps on winning for us.

“Jim has put a lot of good work into the horse and he knows him so well - it’s a big team effort from everyone at home because we are a smallish yard and, to have a horse like this come along, it makes a big difference to everyone.”

Early pacesetter Age Of Aquarius, trained by Aidan O’Brien, became lame early in the home straight, and Knight added: “It wasn’t nice to see Aidan’s horse go lame like that, but when I saw that go wrong, and without wanting to appear arrogant, I thought we would win from four furlongs out. He was always going to get there.

“It’s fantastic to win at our local track and I can’t ask for more. It’s nice to have such a good horse so early in my career.”

“There are races like the Lonsdale Stakes and Doncaster Cup to consider, but maybe we should think about a trip to the Melbourne Cup.”

Crowley said a trip to Australia would suit the horse, and added: “He settled lovely and he was travelling so nicely at the top of the hill. He is just a tough little horse and he has been a legend for me around here, there can be no question.

“I came there so well and thought I would go away and win easily, but then it took a bit of time to wear the runner-up down. He’s so tough. You couldn’t wish for a nicer character of a horse.

“He’s probably still improving and he’s earned his right go to for something like the Melbourne Cup. He travels, stays and likes fast ground so why not?

“It’s probably the most significant win for me, being my home track and Illustrious Blue.

“He needed every yard of that trip and there is no reason why he couldn’t run in the Ascot Gold Cup next year because he was going on again at the finish.”



Trainer Clive Cox was thrilled with Electrolyser’s effort to finish a length and a quarter second to Illustrious Blue in the Artemis Goodwood Cup, a race in which the favourite Age Of Aquarius was pulled up.

“I’m really pleased because I’d always hoped he’d be this calibre of horse,” said Cox. “There is more to come because he has been held up since he ran in the Sagaro. I’m delighted he has proved what I thought he was and there are a few attractive races in France we could look at.”

Luca Cumani, trainer of third-placed Purple Moon, added: “Kieren (Fallon) said he got a little bit thrown off his stride when sadly the other horse (Age Of Aquarius) broke down. But that’s just a mild excuse and the important thing is that he ran so well and he’ll go for the Lonsdale Stakes at York now.”

Age Of Aquarius was taken to the Arundel Veterinary Centre for further treatment after the race.



Glorious Goodwood specialist Mark Johnston, who had drawn a blank on the first two days of the Festival this year, finally got off the mark for 2010 when Eastern Aria took the Moet Hennessy Fillies’ Stakes.

The filly set a new course record of 2m 58.05 seconds when giving Johnston his 48th career success at Glorious Goodwood.

“Everyone was asking me what my best chance was and I had a lot of runners in handicaps over the first couple of days but we were at the mercy of the handicapper so it’s amazing to get the first win in a Group race,” said Johnston.

“This filly was the most improved horse in my yard last season by a long way. She went from being a handicapper in the mid 70s to finishing fourth in a Group One.

“I had big hopes for her at the start of this year and made lots of big entries but had to scrap them all. I thought she would be running in Group Ones by now but she had just not been firing at all but now she can have some good entries again.

“I’d like to run her over a mile and a half in the Canadian International at the end of the year but I’m not sure what we will do in between.”

Moet Hennessy Fillies’ Stakes


Richard Hills, the winning rider on Eastern Aria, said: “They went fast and I just slotted her in where she was happy. She really battled it out well at Newmarket and she has come on again here.

“We weren’t sure that she would stay but I rode her like she would she would and I wa really pleased with the way that she picked up at the top of the hill and I didn’t think that anything would catch me then.

“She has a great attitude and everything has just come right for her. I am pleased for myself and pleased for the team - we haven’t had a winner this week. It’s a tough week and it’s nice to have a winner.

“The ground is quick and there was a good strong gallop, so I am not surprised that it was a course record.”

Mark Johnston, the winning trainer, added: “It’s very difficult to win handicaps here and the handicappers that I have brought here, whilst being at the top of their game, have been exposed.

“It has also been slightly strange racing this week - the ground is very, very fast and maybe a little loose on top, which doesn’t suit some horses.

“Richard rides Eastern Aria very well. She can be quite difficult because she is very strong and he has got her settled well today. I thought that we would see some improvement over this trip last year but we ended up running her in Canada over a mile and a quarter - clearly an inadequate trip - and she was fourth in a Group One.

“I thought that the sky was the limit after that run but she was not on form at all for the first half of this year and there was almost thoughts of retirement. She has now bounced back as good as ever.

“Her last race was a good one and this one even better. Hopefully, she will keep progressing right to the end of the year like last season. She rose from all-weather handicaps last term right though the ranks to Group One company and we were thinking about Group One races for her this year but it didn’t look like that for a while. It’s back on the cards now.”

Fourth Race Placed Quotes
Moet Hennessy Fillies’ Stakes (Registered as the Lillie Langtry Stakes)


Only tough Eastern Aria, who set a track record time, proved too good for Polly’s Mark in the Moet Hennessy Fillies’ Stakes, but trainer Clive Cox remains confident the runner-up will be back in front before long.

After his four-year-old filly had finished second for the third time this season, and fourth in five runs, Cox said of Polly’s Mark: “She’s run great and very consistently, and she got the trip well, but she’s simply been beaten by a better horse.

“The track record speaks for itself and says it was a true-run race and so it was another pleasing performance. I’d say the winner was pretty good and it looks like a strong piece of form. Ours will take her turn [to win] in a minute.”

This was Polly’s Mark’s first attempt at a mile and six furlongs, and Cox said: “She’ll be entered at various places, and she’s in at Deauville and in the [Darley] Yorkshire Oaks, so we’ll decide where we will go. She’s effective at a mile and a half to a mile and six furlongs.”

The third horse, Motrice, had built up a winning sequence of three, although trainer Sir Mark Prescott and owner Kirsten Rausing will not be too disappointed she was beaten today. In finishing placed, she gained valuable black type that will be vital when she goes to stud.

Fifth Race Winner’s Quotes
European Breeders’ Fund New Ham Fillies’ Maiden


Trainer Richard Hannon saddled his 200th winner at Goodwood this afternoon, then modestly dismissed the achievement by saying: “It took 40 years!”

Hannon’s landmark success came via Kalahaag, who carried the colours of Benny Andersson in the EBF New Ham Fillies’ Maiden. Andersson is an emerging owner in British racing, but best known as part of the fab-four that comprised Swedish super group Abba.

The victory extended Hannon’s lead in Glorious Goodwood’s leading trainers’ table, and added to Richard Hughes’ position as pacesetter in the Racing UK leading jockey’s award - both men have been associated with five winners this week.

Hannon continued: “Goodwood is a place I love to come to and we’ve had a bit of luck here. It’s very convenient, because you saddle the horses in one place, lead them into the paddock then walk through to watch the race. Everything is right in front of you and owners love it.

“I love Salisbury and Newbury and all the other courses that have been good to us and Goodwood is right up there.”

Commenting on Kalahaag, who was making her second start at the races, he said: “She didn’t jump too good [on her debut at Newbury] and got in a bit of trouble in running, but she was finishing. She’s in the Millions races [sponsored by Tattersalls and held between late August and early October at Newmarket].”

Of Andersson, Hannon said: “I trained a Danehill Dancer for Benny a couple of years ago and this is the second horse I’ve had of his. I told him to come today, but he couldn’t make it, but he often pops down to the yard in his flying horsebox and is a very nice guy and very knowledgeable.”

Ed Dunlop, trainer of runner-up Dubawi Gulf, said: “I was very happy with that run and now we will try and win a maiden with her.”



Jockey George Baker, having his second winner at Glorious Goodwood 2010 after taking the last yesterday, came with a perfectly-timed run to get Citrus Star up in the dying stages of the Vintage At Goodwood Handicap, to the delight of trainer Chris Wall.

“He was denied a run when he wanted one but that may have helped him as George had to wait and he is the master of getting through gaps.

“He got up and didn’t win too far so it worked perfectly. But it was a bit of a heart in the mouth moment when he was boxed in,” said Wall.

“It was only his third start of the season and he didn’t go in the stalls at Ascot last time so I just wanted to see him run a proper race.

“He’s always been a horse with talent, it’s just a matter of putting everything together and nurturing that talent in the right direction.

“We’ll see what the handicapper does now and whether we have to step up to Listed class.”

Seventh Race Winner’s Quotes
RUK Leading Jockey Award Handicap


Yorkshire trainer Dandy Nicholls has few peers when it comes to handicap sprinters, and he proved the point once again when taking the closing race on day three of Glorious Goodwood.

The Nicholls-trained Hamoody, who won the Group Two Richmond Stakes at this meeting four years ago, joined his current stable earlier this year and now runs for a syndicate based at the Hart Inn, Sandsend near Whitby. He was ridden today by Michael Geran, who was enjoying his first ever winner at the meeting.

Spokesman Mike Scaife said: “There are six of us in the syndicate. Dandy bought the horse and said he would give us some fun. Because he’s won at Goodwood in the past, it made sense to come back here.”

Hamoody was backed from 20/1 into 14/1, but Scaife said: “We all had a little bit each-way on him, but not more than that because it’s been two steps forward and three back with him. He’s shown promise, then not built on it, but it all came right today.”

Hamoody is entered in tomorrow’s Rolf Group Stewards Sprint Handicap (2.45) at Glorious Goodwood, and Nicholls said the horse would take his chance if happy in the morning. Nicholls said: “We don’t gallop them at home, we run them, and if he’s okay tomorrow he might as well take his chance.

“We’re just getting to know him - he was a good horse, but lost his way. He has a good rapport with this place.”

Kevin Ryan, trainer of runner-up Bajan Tryst, said: “He’s stringing some good runs together now, and I think he’s really starting to progress. I’m going to look after him this year because he’s still maturing and I think next season he could be a nice horse.”

Seamus Buckley, Goodwood’s Clerk of the Course, said: “We have changed the going descriptions this morning after a dry night. The course has quickened slightly but is standing up well to the racing we have had.

“We watered two furlongs of the round course after racing last night. We put on eight millimetres from the 10-furlong start to the intersection of the bends.

“We have removed the temporary running rail from the final three furlongs of the straight which means there is a lovely fresh strip of ground on the far side.

“We will review the watering programme after racing this evening. There could be some rain tomorrow evening which we will take into consideration.”

Winning jockey:-Name: Fallon, Kieren Francis Date Of Birth: February 22, 1965 Background: Became apprentice to Kevin Prendergast when 17, riding his first winner the following year. Moved to Britain when still an apprentice in 1988, working for Jimmy Fitzgerald and then Lynda Ramsden in 1993. Signed to ride for Henry Cecil in 1996, and became champion jockey for the first time in 1997 with 202 wins, also winning his first two classics. Joined Sir Michael Stoute in 2000 after acrimonious split with Cecil, but suffered a bad fall at Royal Ascot that nearly ended his career, and ruled him out of the rest of the season.
