The Duel on the Downs

I have been working late into the night again, producing a new horse racing article for the benefit of mankind. It is a preview to the upcoming Glorious Goodwood meeting, a festival jammed packed solid, full of style and chic!

Please click on the following link to the article:

For the first time this year, there is a Ladies Celebrity race taking place on Ladies Day, in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital. One of the contestants is BBC Radio 1 DJ Sara Cox, who is featured discussing her participation in the following clip.

The highlight of the meeting however is the unofficially titled "Duel on the Downs", where this last ears winner of the Sussex Stakes, Canford Cliffs comes up against wonder colt Frankel in this year's renewal of the same event.

Below is a video where jockey Richard Hughes gives an insight into the match.

Glorious Goodwood is one of the most enjoyable race meetings of the English summer; full of all the panache, but without the stuffiness of Royal Ascot.

Tatty is now contacting his bookmaker


The Duel on the Downs was won by a superlative performance from Frankel. For an excellent write-up on the race, please click on the following article from Paula Sainthouse:
