UK's Goodwood Links With SAf Gr1 Queen's Plate
Goodwood Racecourse and L'Ormarins, sponsor of South Africa's most prestigious mile race, the Queen's Plate, have announced an historic race sponsorship association which will link Glorious Goodwood with one of South Africa's most high profile racedays, reports sportinglife.com. The Glorious Goodwood Gr2 Peninsula Stakes will be run at the L'Ormarins Queen's Plate meeting on January 11 at Kenilworth racecourse, while the Gr3 L'Ormarins Queen's Plate Oak Tree Stakes will be run at the 2014 Glorious Goodwood Festival. Adam Waterworth, Managing Director of Goodwood Racecourse, said: "The L'Ormarins Queen's Plate is one of South Africa's most high profile racedays of the year so we thought an association between us and L'Ormarins Queen's Plate would be a nice fit for both brands."
