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 Group 3 RN Irwin Stakes or Group 3 DC Mckay Stakes are good guides to this event and the Goodwood is a time honoured race in Adelaide. Despatch (2019) captured the DC Mckay Stakes and Goodwood double when successful 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.
Champion stallion I Am Invincible (2nd in 2009) won the DC Mckay Stakes prior to finishing runner-up in this event.
In recent years champion mare Black Caviar (2012) and classy Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock mare Platelet (2013) both won Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes on their way to winning the Goodwood.
Despatch (2019) took out the DC Mckay Stakes over 1100m at Morphettville before scoring a classy victory in this event for the Tony McEvoy stable.
Recent Goodwood winners include Santa Ana Lane (2018) and Vega Magic (2017).
