Busan–Gyeongnam Horse Racing Park

The Busan–Gyeongnam Horse Racing Park is a horse-racing track in South Korea, Busan, Gangseo-gu. It opened in 2005, at Beombang-dong.

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

LetsRun Park Busan–Gyeongnam is also known as Busan–Gyeongnam Horse Racing Park, the largest hippodrome in Busan, South Korea. It was opened in 2005, operated by Korea Racing Authority (KRA). Its course type is Thoroughbred (Flat racing).

As of 2017, Busan held live racing on Fridays and Sundays. 10-11 races on Fridays from 11:30 pm – 6:00 pm (with simulcasting from Jeju) and 6 races on Sundays from 12:30 pm to 5:00 pm (with simulcasting from Seoul). The track is also open every Saturday to show live simulcasting from Seoul. Some notable races held in this track are Korean Oaks (GII), KRA Cup Mile (GII), Busan Mayors Cup (GIII), Owners Cup (GIII), and Gyeongnam Governor’s Cup (GIII).

Track Details

Among the three oval tracks in Busan, only two are used for races. The chute is also utilized for 1000M races, and unlike Seoul, the track configuration allows Mile races.

The capacity of the track is set at 32,000, with plenty of seating both outside and inside. There is a designated betting window for foreign visitors on the third floor with English language assistance if necessary. The tracks also have a family park and a lake in the infield and a “Ponyland” petting area on the Grandstand side. The Grandstand is a smaller version of the “Luckyville” grandstand at Seoul, accommodating 15,000 punters.

The track also has its distinguished characteristic where it serves lively bars and restaurants that can accommodate 30,000 people, located through the racecourse enclosure. These are the Bollinger Champagne Bar and Bistro, Curragh View and Horseshoe Bars, The Horseshoe Restaurant, and the Horace Pinks and Vintage Crop West End Bars. It also provides various entertainment for children throughout the horse racing afternoons, perfect for family bonding.

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.
