Glorious Goodwood usually takes place in late July or early August. The festival always starts on a Tuesday and runs through until Saturday, with some world-class racing on show throughout the week.
Glorious Goodwood takes place at Goodwood Racecourse, which is located in Chichester, West Sussex.
It is home to three of the UK's 36 annual Group 1 Flat races, the Sussex Stakes, the Goodwood Cup and the Nassau Stakes.
On day one, the spotlight will shine on The Goodwood Cup, which is one of the oldest and most prestigious horse races in the world.
As a Group 1 contest, it always attracts some of the best equine athletes in the sport.
Wednesday's action is topped by the Group 1 Sussex Stakes, while the prestigious Group 1 Nassau Stakes follows 24 hours later.
On Friday, those in attendance celebrate the world's best horses and jockeys on King George's Day.
Day four features the Group 2 King George Stakes, known as one of the fastest races on the racing calendar.
The meeting comes to a conclusion on the fifth and final day, with the Stewards Cup the last high-profile race of the week.
Goodwood's primary meeting, now known as "Glorious Goodwood", was first established in 1802, while the Goodwood Stakes was not established until 1823.
The meeting continued to improve slowly, but the popularity of the venue grew rapidly after the Second World War.
In 1953, 55,000 spectators gathered inside on day one of racing, and it was not until 1970 that Glorious Goodwood was extended to five days.
Over the years, prize money increased, and it is now one of the highlights of the racing calendar every summer.
The meeting kicks off in style with two Group 2 races on the agenda in the Vintage Stakes and Lennox Stakes.
Tuesday's highlight is the Goodwood Cup, which was won by Ascot Gold Cup winner Kyprios. It allows flat stayers to prove their stamina in one of the toughest races on the calendar.
