Beverley Racecourse

Beverley Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, United Kingdom. It opened in 1752, at York 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

Beverley Racecourse is a non-profit organization that has been part of the historic market town of Beverley for over 300 years. In 1752, the Jockey Club was founded, and with its founding, the occasional racing at nearby Westwood Pasture was recognized, and Beverley Racecourse was founded. It is located at Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, England, a thoroughbred horse racing track. It is renowned for its famous hill, allowing for a stint as an airbase when the track became a runway during the world war.

The first grandstand was commissioned for the racecourse on May 22, 1767, at £1,000. In 1968, a £90,000 stand was opened in Tattersalls enclosure. In August 2018, it was announced that planning permission was being sought for a £4.8 million grandstand to replace the existing 1960s structure, with expected completion on April 2021. It has been described as an “unpretentious but agreeable” racecourse. As of July 2019, 10 horses have died at the racecourse since 2007.

It hosts 19 race meetings in total, 11 of which feature extra entertainment and fun, from the family-themed May Day with a petting zoo and funfair rides to the glamour of Ladies’ Day. Entry cost ranges from £4-£28 if you pre-book, while under 18 is for free.

Track Details

The track is right-handed, flat, and just over 1 mile and 3 furlongs. It is predominantly flat but stiff. Horses are tested with a downhill bend into the straight, and then they face a grueling uphill finish to the winning line. The sharp right-hand bend and the ground running away to the left make a low draw (i.e., on the inside rail) much more advantageous than a high draw (i.e., on the wide outside and on-ground sloping right to left).

Other facilities available at the racecourse for events such as parties, celebrations, meetings, corporate dinings, and rooms can be held in their Complimentary Tea and Coffee, Canteen, Washing and Changing Facilities, Recreation Room, Racecourse Lodge, Dining and Hospitality, Private Rooms, The Attraction Restaurant, and Cleverlys Bistro.

They also provide mobile catering, toilet facilities, and event managers if required. There is also an annual badge, which allows holders to enter all the Beverley Racecourse fixtures through the season and entry to a suite reserved exclusively for annual badge holders use on race days.

It offers three enclosures. The first one is the Premier Enclosure which gives access to Terrace Bar, 1690 Bar, Attraction Restaurant, Whistlejackets Lounge, The Cocktail People, and Private Rooms. The second is the Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure that gives access to Rapid Lad Bar, Touch Above Bar, Minster Bar & Lavender Lawn, The Paddock Bar, Cleverley’s Bar, and Bistro, and Guest Caterers. The last one is the Course Enclosure, which gives access to Hurn Bar, Guest Caterers, and Sweet Delights Sweet Hut.

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.
