Goodwood Racecourse launches new Bonus Scheme with Bro Park Racecourse, Stockholm

Horse Racing | Press Article 16/04/24

Goodwood Racecourse and Bro Park Racecourse, Stockholm, are delighted to announce a new bonus scheme to encourage horses to compete at both racecourses.

This exciting partnership will allow owners with horses competing in either country the opportunity to experience the unique atmosphere of running their horse at either the Qatar Goodwood Festival or The Stockholm Cup Day at Bro Park, two of Europe’s premier race meetings.

Any horse which wins a qualifying race at Bro Park on Stockholm Stora Day, Sunday 16th June, will be entitled to free travel and entry to a reciprocal race at The Qatar Goodwood Festival, 30th July to 3rd August.

In a reciprocal arrangement, any horse winning certain races during the Qatar Goodwood Festival will gain free travel and entry to selected races at the Stockholm Cup meeting, 22nd September 2019. The full list of qualifying races is appended below.

Dennis Madsen, Head of Racing, Svensk Galopp, commented; ‘It’s a huge honour for Swedish horse racing to be associated with Goodwood Racecourse. However, we would not have accepted the relationship unless we thought we had something to offer towards it. It’s a great opportunity for Swedish owners to travel aboard and get a unique experience and, obviously, we believe we can give something back to British owners who want to run their horses at the valuable Stockholm Cup-meeting.’

Ed Arkell, Goodwood Clerk of the Course said; ‘We’re delighted to be working with Bro Park and Svensk Galopp. This is a wonderful opportunity for Swedish owners to experience the unique charm of The Qatar Goodwood Festival and, equally, for British owners to run at Sweden’s most prestigious and valuable meeting.’

David Menuisier, trainer of last years’ Stockholm Cup winner, Thundering Blue, said; ‘This is a great initiative by Goodwood and Bro Park. We were looked after brilliantly at Bro Park last year and it’s a really well run racecourse. We will certainly look to support this initiative and would encourage others to do so and experience racing in Sweden.’

Roy Arne Kvisla, the winning most trainer at Bro Park and in Scandinavia in 2018; ‘This can be a great opportunity for us to broaden our views. It is normally costly to go on a long journey with the horses, but this is a golden opportunity to do so. Goodwood is a great racecourse and the track is very fair. If I have the right horse, I will be happy to go.’

Note: Roy Arne Kvisla ran Musadif in the Stewards Cup in 2006.
