Prize Money Released for Qatar Goodwood Festival

Racing Post

Goodwood Racecourse released prize money for the 2020 Qatar Goodwood Festival Thursday. The five-day meeting, which will kick off with the G1 Goodwood Cup July 28, will offer a total prize fund of just over £2,300,000. The Qatar Goodwood Festival will run from July 28 through Aug. 1. A purse of ₤275,000 will be on offer for the week's feature race–the G1 Qatar Sussex S.

“Obviously prize money for this year's Qatar Goodwood Festival is less than previous years, and significantly less than we would want, but any major race meeting is reliant on attendances and hospitality for the majority of its revenue,” said Adam Waterworth, MD at Goodwood. “Without the support of all our sponsors –but especially that from the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club–we would not have been able to offer anything like the prize money levels.”
