Description  
Goodwood is a racecourse in West Sussex in the United Kingdom. It was launched as a flat horseracing course for local officers by the third Duke of Richmond in 1802, after the Officers of the Sussex Militia had had Petworth Park withdrawn from availability by the Earl of Egremont in 1801. The first two day meeting was such a success that a more ambitious three day meeting was held in the following year, under Jockey Club Rules. Goodwood's popularity began to grow rapidly during the second half of the 20th Century and in 1953, 55,000 spectators were present at the first day of the now famous July Meeting. This view is taken from Trumble Hill on the North East Slope, which has a wonderful view of the racecourse and panoramic views of parts of Sussex, Hampshire and the English Channel beyond.
