And it really is glorious. Goodwood has to be one of the world's most beautiful racecourses, lying in the undulating countryside of the South Downs, and looking across to the Isle of Wight. With the Sussex Stakes and the Goodwood Cup, this is another staging post where champions are formed (just think of Baaeed and Frankel in recent times)... and it's the course where Lester Piggott finally got his comeuppance on cheeky Frankie, in an off camera moment mid race.
23rd - 26th August 2023
We've never met anyone who hasn't had a good day out at York. The crowd are friendly, so are the staff... and the racing is top class. From the Juddmonte International on Wednesday, to the Ebor Handicap on Saturday, head up north for a fair few glasses of wine, and for a day out that could become the highlight of your racing year. Choose between our hotel in Leeds (includes transfers to and from the course), or from hotels in York's city centre (in walking distance of the track).
St Leger Festival
13th - 16th September 2023
Sunny Donny. OK, so it might not always be so sunny! But you're always in for a fun day up here. Join Frankie as he rides his final British Classic, or drop by in the days leading up to the big race, and experience some of Doncaster's legendary welcome, with lashings of beer and good food guaranteed. Best of all: your commute is a matter of minutes, and our hotel overlooks the track.
Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe
1st October 2023
Time for Frankie's final trip over the Channel for France's big occasion... and this is the chance you get to see him up close, as he delivers a preview for us the night before his ride in the big one. Longchamp was the site of his resurrection confirmation with Golden Horn, and it saw him win twice with Enable a few years ago. Now fully redeveloped, the course is slick and elegant, in the heart of the French capital. A return trip on the Eurostar is included in your package, along with accommodation in some of the finest Parisian hotels.
British Champions Day
21st October 2023
We may have witnessed the end of Frankie's Royal Ascot career, but this course certainly isn't finished with him yet! Join the legend for his UK swansong, as he looks to see off a campaign in style, with rides in the Champions Stakes, and in other curtain closers for the British Champions Series. Ascot was the site of his 'Magnificent Seven' in 1996, and this year saw him add a ninth Gold Cup during the royal meeting, taking his total Royal Ascot wins to 81.
3rd - 4th November 2023
This is it, folks (unless he's confirmed at Melbourne, of course!). Roll up across the Atlantic for a Frankie Farewell at Santa Anita, on the outskirts of Los Angeles. It's a track he made his own last winter, and the cover of palm trees will provide a fitting location for a fiery finale, and a send off into the Californian sunset. Our package includes flights, luxury accommodation, hospitality and, most importantly, a preview of the two days with Frankie himself.
