Belterra Park

Belterra Park is a horse-racing track in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States. It opened in 1925, at Kellogg Rd.

Saratoga Race Course

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

Fifteen (15) years after closing a previous track in Cincinnati, Old Oakley Race Course was the opening of the Beleterra Park in 1925. It was originally called River Downs, located along the banks of the Ohio River, adjacent to the Coney Island Water Park and Riverbend Music Center.

In January 2011, it was purchased by Pinnacle Entertainment. In October 2013, Pinnacle renamed River Downs as Belterra Park.

Due to the disastrous flood, it was moved slightly to the east due to the 2013 rebuild and had two courses, similar to the previous River Downs configuration. In its 2014 reopening, Belterra Park applied to race until mid-October, citing an opportunity created when the autumn racing dates at nearby Turfway Park were transferred to Churchill Downs.

In 2017, Belterra Park featured live racing beginning on April 29 and ending October 8, with racing held Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, most Thursdays, Independence Day, Memorial Day, and Labor Day. Quarter horse racing will also be featured on September 9 and October 8. Then by October 2018, Boyd Gaming purchased the property from Pinnacle, along with three other casinos.

Track Details

The Main Track (dirt) is 1-mile (oval) with 6 1/2 furlong and 1 1/4 mile chutes, in which inside is the 7-furlong turf (grass) course. It also has a stable area that can accommodate up to 1,350 horses. Before the tear-down of the grandstand, Belterra Park’s seating capacity was 9,350. Afterward, it now has 1,200 permanent stadium-style seats with room to add another 1,000 bleacher-style seats on larger race days.

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.
