They're off! Goodwood flat season racing begins: in pictures

They're still not allowed to welcome racegoers, but staff at Goodwood have got their new season of flat racing up and running.

The first two fixtures are behind closed doors but crowds of 4,000 are set to be welcomed to the two-day May Festival, on Friday 21 and Saturday 22.

The opening day - on Friday - was dominated by Tom Marquand scoring a treble with victories on Canonized, Warrior Brave and Orin Swift. See some images from the opening day on this page and the ones linked. Pictures are by Clive Bennett - see more at - and don't miss all the Goodwood coverage in Thursday's Chichester Observer.
