Gr1 Goodwood Field & Barriers

Wednesday, 16th May 2018

The final field has been declared and the barrier draw conducted for the $1 million Darley Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville racecourse this Saturday. The race will see a capacity field of 20 runners take their place. First run in 1881, the Goodwood has been won by some top-class sprinters including Aurie's Star (1940), Royal Gem (1946), Super Elegant (2004), Glamour Puss (2005), Takeover Target (2009), Black Caviar (2012), Black Heart Bart (2016), and Vega Magic (2017). This year the favourite for the race is the Lindsay Park-trained Vega Magic who is listed as a $2.60 chance with TAB to successfully defend his title. Vega Magic dominates betting, so much so that his nearest market rivals are Gr1 Winterbottom Stakes winner Viddora and Gr1-placegetter Voodoo Lad at $10 followed by Santa Ana Lane and Thronum at $13.
