Saratoga Race Course is a horse-racing track in Saratoga Springs, New York, United States. It opened on August 3, 1863, and is the oldest organized sporting venue of any kind in the United States. It is typically open for racing from late July through early September.

History

It is a horse track in France that features harness, steeplechase, and thoroughbred located in Urou et Crennes, 1 km from Argentan in Orne. Coming from l’Aigle via Merlerault and Haras du Pin, turn right at the entrance to Argentan. Access by the A28 motorway, Argentan Sud, or Gacé exit. Visitors can also use the train from the Argentan SNCF station, located about 3 km from the racecourse.

It was on July 31, 1893, that this track was established. Then the following year was its first derby run over a distance of 4000 meters at the mounted trot under diluvian rain and terrible terrain, won by NANGIS, a son of the famous FUSCHIA in the kilometer reduction of 2’30 “.

Its races were organized over two meetings, Sunday and Pentecost Monday. However, the German occupation and the Battle of Normandy from 1942 until 1947 completely ruined the racecourse. Thanks to a team of volunteers who had redesigned the grass track measuring 1600 meters by 30 meters wide; hence it reopened in 1947.

History

John Hunter, who became the first chairman of The Jockey Club, and William R. Travers built Saratoga Race Course. The original track was built across Union Avenue from the present Saratoga Race Course at the current location of the Oklahoma Track (training track), which opened the following year. Since 1864 the track has been the site of the Travers Stakes, the oldest major thoroughbred horse race in the United States, which is the main draw of the annual summer race meeting. The Saratoga meet originally consisted of only four days, but over time was lengthened, and for many years, the meet lasted for four weeks. In the 1990’s it was lengthened to five weeks. Today it is a six-week meeting ending on Labor Day. In 2009, NYRA extended the 2010 racing meet by 4 days. From 1943 to 1945, racing was not held at Saratoga Race Course due to travel restrictions during the war. During those years, the stakes races that would have been run at Saratoga Race Course were contested at Belmont Park instead.

Saratoga Race Course has two well-known nicknames — The Spa (for the nearby mineral springs), and the “Graveyard of Champions” (for the upsets that have occurred there). Man o’ War suffered his only defeat in 21 starts while racing at Saratoga Race Course; Secretariat was defeated at Saratoga Race Course by Onion after winning the Triple Crown; and Gallant Fox was beaten by 100-1 long shot Jim Dandy in the 1930 Travers Stakes. In 1999, Saratoga Race Course was rated as Sports Illustrated’s #10 sports venue of the 20th Century.

As is the case with the other two tracks operated by the New York Racing Association – Aqueduct and Belmont Park – there are three separate tracks in the main course at Saratoga Race Course.
