Ladies’ Day, the most glamorous day of the Qatar Goodwood Festival, is the place where the worlds of fashion and horseracing become one. Our ladies' amateur jockey race, the Magnolia Cup, will get the day off to an impressive start, which in previous years has supported charities dedicated to helping women and children.
The prestigious Group 1 Qatar Nassau Stakes is the highlight of the eight-race card, worth £600,000. Previous winners include Ouija Board, Midday and Minding.
Off the track, the racecourse becomes a style showcase for the fashion savvy as the world's media and celebrities descend for a day on the Downs. Guests in the Gordon Enclosure can also eat, dance and socialise on The Earls Lawn - a modern-day take on the garden parties of yesteryear.
The Magnolia Cup
Twelve fearless women, 40mph racehorses and the world's most beautiful racecourse - there can be only one winner. Reflect on the successes of previous years, including 2019 winner Khadijah Mellah, who created history by becoming the first Muslim rider to race and ride in an amateur horse race and keep up to date with announcements for 2020. There is nothing quite like the Magnolia Cup.
