Del Mar Racecourse

Del Mar Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Del Mar, California, USA. It opened in 1937, at Jimmy Durante Blvd.

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 was in 1937 when Del Mar opened as Bing Crosby greeted the first fan through the gate. Then by the next year (1938), on August 12, the famous Seabiscuit-Ligaroti had a match race in the track which drew 20,000 to the track and a nationwide radio audience. It had a close fight and intense duel, and Seabiscuit under George (The Iceman) Woolf and 130 pounds beat Ligaroti and Noel (Spec) Richardson at 115 by a nose.

Del Mar is one of the racetracks that created history in horse racing as it continues to do outstanding numbers–30,578 for daily average attendance (1st in the nation) and a record $12,115,024 for a daily average handle (2nd nationally). It also crowned a couple of new kings, and in 2006, it received a 42,005 audience, the second-largest crowd in track history. Even in 2010, despite the continuing recession that tightened the businesses, the track still managed to increase the daily on-track body count to 17,906, numbers that haven’t been seen on the local scene since pre-ITW days. Then on the following year (2011), the track’s Opening Day attendance rose to a single-day record of 46,588.

Track Details

The racetrack is exactly 1 mile (1.609 km) long with chutes for 7/8 and 1 1/4 mile races and a seven-eighths mile oval with a diagonal straightaway chute for 1 1/16 and 1 1/8 mile races on the turf course. Races run counter-clockwise, and it can capacitate 44,000, being the second largest horse-racing venue in the western United States, after the nearby Santa Anita Park. The turf is a mixture of Common Bermuda and Hybrid Bermuda (GN-1) and runs twice a year at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. It can stable more than two thousand horses. It is famous for its tan stucco grandstand located directly on the Pacific Ocean.

They run live racing from July through early September, and a second live meet is run in November (started in 2014). There is also a satellite wagering facility that operates during the other months of the year.

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.
