Brighton Racecourse

Brighton Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Brighton, East Sussex, United Kingdom. It opened in 1783, at Freshfield 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

The track is located at the Brighton, East Sussex, on the Whitehawk Hill, on the edge of the South Downs, about four hundred feet above sea level and a mile from the south coast. Although recorded races were held before 1713, the first official race meeting was in 1783, when the first official public race was held in the area, organized by the Duke of Cumberland. It is currently owned by Arena Racing Company.

In 1788, a grandstand was erected. However, it was incinerated on August 23, 1796. The incident was blamed on a family of paupers who had been allowed to live in it. A railway was established in Brighton, allowing greater access for Londoners, making the racecourse prosper in 1850. A new stand was also built, and the Brighton Cup was inaugurated.

Track Details

It is a left-handed course for flat racing only, and the track’s shape is like a horseshoe with one and a half-mile in length, making it unusual compared to other tracks. The finishing straight is about four furlongs in length, with a steep descent followed by a slightly less steep climb to the winning post. However, hurdle races were also formerly held at Brighton, with one being situated on the steep downhill. Now, the course hosts flat racing from April until October. Its seasonal highlight is the three-day Brighton Festival in August, with the main event being the Brighton Mile Challenge Trophy Handicap.

The facility also offers designated disabled parking near the entrance, designated toilets across the venue, and lift or elevator access to all levels.

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.
