We might be in the middle of a very wet winter but it’s only three months before a sure sign of the imminent summer arrives - the start of the flat racing season at Goodwood.
So what better time than now to catch up with racecourse MD Adam Waterworth to find out how plans for another memorable campaign on the Downs are coming together?
Waterworth, approaching his fourth season at the helm of the world’s most beautiful racecourse, talks about the many feature meetings that will mark out the season, including the May Festival, the Three Friday Nights, the August bank holiday weekend and, of course, the five days of Glorious.
He also speaks about a new fixture - a charity raceday on Sunday, June 8.
Remember to keep reading the Observer - and checking this website - for all the latest news from Goodwood before and during the season.
