The second leg will take place on Prix de l’Arc day in France in October and the final race of the Triple Crown will be in Doha, Qatar, in 2016.
The Goodwood Racecourse blends fashion, high society, and world class horsemanship. Located 30 miles from Brighton and Southampton, Goodwood has been called “one of the most beautiful Race courses in England”.
