Delaware Park

Delaware Park is a horse-racing track, Casino and gold course in Wilmington, Delaware, United States. It opened in 1937, at Stanton, Delaware.

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

On June 26, 1937, the Delaware Park was opened, located at Stanton, Delaware, United States, outside the city of Wilmington, and about 30 miles from Philadelphia. It is currently owned by Delaware Park LLC and known as DelPark, an American Thoroughbred and only thoroughbred horse racing track in the state of Delaware, with a casino and golf course. Moreover, it is also the only mid-Atlantic track to regularly card Arabian races, as the area has a strong Arabian and equestrian population.

Although it flourished, it was forced to close briefly in 1943 during World War II. It resumed in 1944 and became profitable, with a handle of more than $23 million from 288,000 customers. In 1958, the expansion of the new clubhouse and the enlargement of the grandstand, which doubled the seating capacity, worth $2.8 million, was completed. Televisions were also added, and the winner’s circle was built. During Saturdays, crowds of more than 20,000 were commonplace.

Delaware Park also offers simulcasts of races from other tracks. Sports Book at Delaware Park offers wagering on live and simulcast horse races. Guests can also access a wheelchair-accessible car park and wheelchair-accessible entrance.

The Graded events that were held at Delaware Park in 2019 are Grade II: Delaware Handicap; and Grade III: (1) Delaware Oaks, (2) Kent Stakes, and (3) Robert G. Dick Memorial Stakes.

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.
