Carlisle Racecourse

Carlisle Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Carlisle, Cumbri, United Kingdom. It opened in 1904, at Durdar 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 racing held at Carlisle was recorded in 1559 at Swift (the original location of the track). Now, it is a thoroughbred horse racing track relocated in the village of Blackwell near Carlisle, on the southern fringe of the city of Carlisle in the county of Cumbria in northwest England. The course was relocated to its present site in 1904, owned by Jockey Club Racecourses. Then on July 2, 1929, the track showcased the first-ever Totalisator Board operated in pool betting system on a British racecourse.

Track Details

It has three jumping tracks in total, and all are a little more undulating than the flat track, one for steeplechases around the outside and the two on the inside for hurdles. The track’s round course is a right-handed, galloping, pear-shaped track. Its six-furlong course, which involves two right-handed bends, is level for the first two furlongs. Over jumps, there are nine fences per circuit and a run-in of 300 yards. Sprint races take place on a small chute near the final bend, making the track reasonably straight, but for longer races, they must take on the long sweeping bend before the home straight.

Carlisle racecourse also offers premier Enclosure on race days, allowing access to the first floor Patterson Bar, the Red Rum Bar, Family Bar, Parade Ring, and Pre-Parade Ring. The track also features rooms for corporate events such as conferences, exhibitions, and meetings. There is also Bell Hall, an open plan room on the ground floor of the grandstand that has vehicular access suitable for exhibitions. Moreover, the grandstand also has free Wi-Fi and presentation equipment, such as an LCD projector, screen, flipchart, and pens.

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.
