The Goodwood is the premier sprint event of the Adelaide autumn racing carnival and always attracts a strong contingent of well above average gallopers. Up until 2007 the Goodwood was a handicap event before it was changed to a set weights & penalty race, which tends to favour the better performed horses engaged.
Races such as the Gr3 RN Irwin Stakes or Gr3 DC Mckay Stakes are good guides to this event and the Goodwood is a time honoured race in Adelaide. I Am Invincible (2nd in 2009) won the DC Mckay Stakes prior to finishing runner-up in this race.
Some more than handy gallopers have taken out the Goodwood over the years including the brilliant Black Caviar (2012) and Takeover Target (2009), while talented sprinters Super Elegant (2004), Bomber Bill (2003), Sword (1996), Euclase (1992) and Boardwalk Angel (1989) have all won this race.
In recent years champion mare Black Caviar (2012) and classy Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock mare Platelet (2013) both won Gr1 Robert Sangster Stakes on their way to winning the Goodwood.
Vega Magic (2017) resumed from a spell to win this event first-up for the Lindsay Park stable and recent Goodwood winners include Black Heart Bart (2016) and Flamberge (2015).
