Clairefontaine Racecourse

Clairefontaine Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Tourgéville, France. It opened in 1928, at Chem. de l’Hippodrome.

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 racecourse is mostly known for Hippodrome de Clairefontaine or Clairefontaine Racecourse, which officially had its first racing on August 8, 1928. From 1928, there were only flat races on the track, and trotting meetings only started in 1932. In 1936, it was nicknamed “little Clairefontaine”. As more guests, more space was demanded; hence the SCPA decided to expand the racetrack by purchasing the land in Tourgéville, where two large tracks were built, flat and steeplechase and had its first races during the summer of 1937. However, the track closed in the Second World War in September 1939 and only reopened in 1949. On August 13, 1999, the track also had its first obstacle course and first racecourse in France to offer a night meeting in 2006. Hence, Deauville’s Clairefontaine racetrack became a triple discipline racetrack and, for the record, the only one in Normandy coast showcasing flat, trotting, and obstacle courses. It is situated in Route de l’hippodrome, 14800 Tourgeville, near Deauville in the Calvados département in the Normandy région of France.

Track Details

The track is a 40-acre (16 ha) facility hosts harness racing, flat thoroughbred racing, steeplechase, and hurdle races. Turf track for flat races is 2,000m, from 1,200m to 3,400m; for hurdle races is from 2,700m to 3,600m (from 9 to 13 hurdles); for steeple races is from 3,400m to 4,300m (from 12 to 17 hurdles), and for trotting races is 1350m.

It can accommodate up to 7,000 people, and the stands have a capacity of 700 seats. The reception and information center offers 80 PMH counters, currency exchange, public telephone, and souvenir shops. It also offers catering with a panoramic view with 120 seats, a terrace that can accommodate 120 people, and an area for an outdoor snack (picnic area). It also features bars, the Brok Café, Mumm champagne bar, and Round bar. It has three car parks with 1,200 spaces in total.

It is also open to the public free of charge every weekday afternoon in July and August. Free pony baptisms with graduation, in which three ponies, one double pony, and one team are on the racetrack. Moreover, it offers a free and supervised daycare during afternoon races, organized on a different theme each day, subject to availability. There are also free snacks for children (while stocks last) and free makeup workshop by a facilitator.

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.
