Century Downs Racetrack and Casino

Century Downs Racetrack and Casino is a horse-racing track in Rocky View County, Alberta, Canada. It opened in 2015, at Century Downs Drive.

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 at 260 Century Downs Drive, Rocky View County, Alberta T4A 0V5 (less than one mile north of the city limits of Calgary and 4.5 miles from the Calgary International Airport), owned by Century Casinos and opened last April 2015. This location is ideally positioned exiting off the Queen Elizabeth II Highway, the main corridor between Calgary and Edmonton, and the most heavily used highways in Western Canada, next to the CrossIron Mills shopping center, a major regional attraction. Due to this, it can capture both the north and the northwest Calgary markets, which do not currently have a casino.

Track Details

It is a standardbred, quarterhorse, chuckwagon, and thoroughbred racing using Flat dirt, 5 1/2 furlongs. On April 1, 2015, its casino was opened, consisting of 550 gaming machines and electronic gaming tables, an off-track betting room, a restaurant and lounge area as well as meeting and event space.

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.
