Goodwood House, set in mature parkland against the backdrop of the Sussex Downs, has been the seat of the Dukes of Richmond for over 300 years. The 1st Duke of Richmond originally bought Goodwood as a hunting lodge and subsequent Dukes enlarged the existing Jacobean house to create the magnificent house that we see today. Now home to the Earl and Countess of March and Kinrara, the 12,000-acre estate is known for its famous sporting events including Glorious Goodwood, the Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival.

Richard Hannon Jnr was crowned champion trainer in his first season at the helm and has not looked back since, training over 170 winners every season. Richard is well known for his ability to train two-year-olds, sending out over 100 juvenile winners in 2014 and 2015, but he is certainly no one-trick pony and the exploits of Group 1 winners Ventura Storm, Pether’s Moon, Night Of Thunder, Toronado, Olympic Glory and Barney Roy are testament to that. Over the years Richard and his father have been responsible for some of Highclere’s most memorable victories, including the very first with Alcove back in 1993 and of course our Champion two-year-old filly Memory who has gone on to be a fantastic broodmare with her first three offspring to race earning black type. Regular stable visits to Herridge are highlights of the calendar for our owners and are always fully subscribed, which we can put down to the beautiful setting and impressive horseflesh as well as the good company and constant flow of champagne!
