Horse Racing | Press Article 17/04/24

Grammy Award Winning DJ, Roger Sanchez, lit up the Sussex Downs on the final night of Three Friday Nights at Goodwood Racecourse on Friday 23 June to a capacity crowd of 11,500. Fans saw Goodwood Racecourses’ iconic parade ring transform into a laser-lit dancefloor as the sun set on an evening of racing in a stunning open-air amphitheatre.

Sanchez captivated the audience with fresh new music along with signature remixes. Racegoers also enjoyed a new ‘reflection’ theme across the racecourse featuring Disco Dancers, Stilt Walkers and Glittery features including a Glitter Instagram Photo Wall.

Over 28,000 race goers descended across the three nights on 9, 16 and 23 June at Goodwood Racecourse, in partnership with Pacha, the world’s most iconic nightclub, attracting a new audience to witness thrilling racing followed by post-racing entertainment.

Adam Waterworth, Managing Director of Goodwood Racecourse said: “Roger Sanchez has been a sell-out alongside our two other hugely popular nights. It has been brilliant to see a whole new audience come racing at Goodwood and we hope that they’ll return to the racecourse off the back of Three Friday Nights.”

It’s just over a month until The Qatar Goodwood Festival, one of the undisputed highlights of the British Flat racing season. The world-famous five-day festival, affectionately known as ‘Glorious Goodwood’, takes place Tuesday 1 August - Saturday 5 August 2023.
