DAX Racecourse

DAX Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Saint-Paul-lès-Dax, France. It opened in 1835 at avenue Pierre Benoît.

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

Originally, the track was located on the site where it is currently an aerodrome, and now the track is situated in 3301 Avenue Pierre Benoît 40990 Saint-Paul-Lès-Dax – France. The Dax Racecourse Company was founded in 1835 spearheaded by M. J. Demoulin. In 1860, the Racecourse was purchased by Alphonse Campet for the sum of 10,000 gold francs on behalf of the town of Dax, 106 acres in the municipality of Saint Paul Lés Dax known as the Jardin des Plantes. During that time, there were only two or three race meetings every year, including the Grand Prix de la Ville de Dax on the town’s annual feast day. But in 1985, when the Racecourse Company of Dax merged with that of Biarritz, the track started to have 12 annual race days (5 with local betting and 7 with national betting). Then at the beginning of the 20th century, Olivier Tirlot, a leading trainer in France for three consecutive years (1930-1932), set up training tracks at Dax with 150 horses. In 1989, the new operator of the racecourse company was M. Jean Louis Gayan Sourgen until the recent day.

Track Details

In a 42 hectares racecourse, it has three tracks. First is a right-handed course for flat racing, a mile, two furlongs round, 20 yards wide, and a 2-furlong finishing straight. Second is a right-handed steeplechase course, with a mile and one and a half furlongs round. The third is a right-handed hurdle course, with a mile and one furlong round. There are also 2 exercise sand tracks, one a mile round, and the other six furlongs round.

The site can accommodate up to 2000 people in its stands and has a car park free of charge with a capacity of 380 vehicles. It also has covered stands, restaurants, and hosts other events such as Hippodrome en Fête in May or garage sales. There are also PMH counters, Currency exchange, Unpaid tickets, and Public telephone. It allows pets with a leash and prohibited glass bottles and sharp objects.

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.
