Goodwood Races

So called from the park in which they are held. They begin the last Tuesday of July, and last four days; but the principal one is Thursday, called the “Cup Day.” These races, being held in a private park, are very select, and admirably conducted. Goodwood Park, the property of the Duke of Richmond, was purchased by Charles, the first Duke, of the Compton family, then resident in East Lavant, a village two miles north of Chichester.
