Cartmel Racecourse

Cartmel Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Cumbria, Grange-over-Sands, United Kingdom. It opened in 1856, at Cartmel.

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

It is located in the south of the Lake District. The oldest recorded racing at Cartmel was in 1856, although races were held at the site before that date. It was supported by local landowners, a very small course featuring primarily amateur jockeys. However, in the second half of the 20th century, the racecourse was expanded and professionalized. In 1925, it adhered to the National Hunt Races, which was held at Cartmel Park adjoining the village, set against the backdrop of the beautiful English Lake District. Then in the 1960s, it started to attract professional jockeys, and the efforts of Colonel Davy Pain and his course Clerk, Tom Riley, were rewarded with a formal racing schedule. By 1974, the track hit the headlines when it became the venue for the attempted Gay Future fraud.

Track Details

Although the track is considered small in size, ironically, it is the third highest attended jumps course in the UK annually, behind only Aintree and Cheltenham race tracks. It is also noted as having a four-furlong run-in on the Steeplechase course, the longest in Britain. The run-in on the Hurdle track is slightly less than 2 furlongs. All winning connections receive a Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding to take home.

It is a left-handed, tight, oval, with six fences and an open ditch and water jump. The run-in after the final fence is half a mile (longest in the UK). The final run-in veers off and cuts the oval in half.

The two types of general admission tickets at Cartmel are the Paddock Enclosure and Course Enclosure. The Paddock Enclosure includes the Grandstand and Paddock, Parade Ring/Winners Enclosure, Marquee Village, and the Louis Roederer Restaurant. Those who availed of this ticket can move freely over to the Course Enclosure at the track crossing point. However, going is not permitted with glass or while horses are on track. On the other hand, the Course Enclosure is situated on the opposite side of the finishing straight from the Paddock are the fairground, trade stands, and the bandstand. Transfers are also possible to the Paddock Enclosure at the track crossing point if you receive a Paddock Ticket or Upgrade ticket. These upgrade tickets can be purchased at the crossing. Both enclosures offer a range of food and drink outlets, betting, and toilet facilities, including accessible toilets and baby changing areas.

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.
