Goodwood Cup

The Goodwood Cup is a Group 2 flat horse race in the United Kingdom open to thoroughbreds which are three-years-old or above. It is run over a distance of 2 miles (3,219 metres) at Goodwood Racecourse, and it takes place annually during the Glorious Goodwood meeting in late July or early August.

The race was first run in 1812, and since then there have been several modifications to the distance. The most recent alterations were in 1990, when it was shortened by a furlong to 2½ miles (4,023 metres), and in 1991, when the present distance was introduced. As the Goodwood Cup was reduced in length, the distance of the secondary staying race at the meeting – the Goodwood Stakes – was increased. Unusually for a flat race there are no starting stalls – the horses start near the winning post and removing the stalls in time for the finish would not be possible.

Together with the 2½ mile Ascot Gold Cup and the 2¼ mile Doncaster Cup, the Goodwood Cup is part of Britain's Stayers' Triple Crown. This is for horses capable of running longer distances. Only six horses have ever swept the series, and Le Moss is the only horse to do it twice. The race was promoted to Group 2 status in 1995, having been previously classed at Group 3 level.
