Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs

Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs is a horse-racing track in Claremore, Oklahoma, United States. It opened in 1987, at Rogers County.

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

In August 1987, the track opened as the second pari-mutuel track in Oklahoma, located at Highway 20 just 3 miles east of Claremore in Rogers County, Oklahoma, near Tulsa, currently owned and operated by the Cherokee Nation. It was considered the showcase of Oklahoma horse racing during its opening year, but in 1988, such title no longer existed when the great racetrack Remington Park was unveiled in Oklahoma City, added with the fast deterioration of the track. It was the beginning of their distress, added with financial adversities for many years, resulting in bankruptcy and closure in 2001. In 2004, the Cherokee Nation purchased the track and renovated it, adding casino gaming. It officially opened again on December 4, 2005. Then on February 24, 2006, live racing returned, holding two separate meets, one for thoroughbred and the other is for quarter horse and mixed breed.

Track Details

The racetrack is a one-mile oval with a stretch length of 872 ft., and the chute is six furlongs, while the training track is 1/2 mile. The grandstand has 2,700 seats, while the Turf Club seating is for up to 400 people. The barn has 600 horse stalls and offers casino gaming which has 250 electronic gaming machines. The track also offers amenities such as dining named Dog Iron Grill, three private meetings rooms ranging from 2,200 square feet to 5,000 square feet, private beverage service, presentation equipment, dance floor, large events, and trade shows. The best feature in the track is the KOA campground and Recreational Vehicles (RV) Park with more than 400 RV pads.

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.
