Inaugural Goodwood "Speed Bonus" Draws Near
In the UK, Goodwood is preparing to stage the inaugural Racehorse Owners Association "Speed Bonus" on Sunday, September 13. The innovative day of racing will consist of eight handicaps, run over distances ranging from five furlongs to two miles, with a possible £100,000 (A$203,000) bonus being awarded to the horse recording the fastest time per furlong of the day (as compared to Racing Post standard time). Callum MacKay, Marketing & PR Manager at Goodwood, commented: "We were pleased with the 109 registrations received by the first deadline for the inaugural "Speed Bonus" and this exciting new concept really seems to have caught the attention of owners."
