Doncaster racecourse

Doncaster racecourse is a horse-racing track in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom. It opened in 1614, at Bawtry Road

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

Doncaster Racecourse also called the Town Moor course, is one of Britain’s oldest (and the largest in physical capacity) established horse racing tracks. It has records of race meetings since the 16th century, located in the center of the UK, in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England, owned by Arena Leisure Plc.

A map of 1595 already shows a racecourse at Town Moor. In 1600 the corporation tried to end the races because of the number of ruffians they attracted, but by 1614 it acknowledged failure and instead marked out a racecourse.

It hosted both Flat and jump racing, including two of Britain’s 36 annual Group 1 races on the Flat, the William Hill St Leger Stakes (established in 1776) and the Vertem Futurity Trophy Stakes. It was also used to be considered the official start and end of the Flat season. The track had been famous for these. However, during the First World War, the racecourse was utilized for military purposes, and substitute races were run at Newmarket from 1915 to 1918.

Track Details

Its grade 2 course is a left-handed, pear-shaped track of around 1 mile 7½ furlongs (3.1 km) which is mostly flat with a very slight incline and subsequent descent at around the 1m mark. Although it has a 4½f run-in, there is a 4f chute available that produces a 1m straight course. An alternate one-mile start is located on another off-shoot of the main circuit, but this is less commonly used than the other. At the same time, the track for the National Hunt track is the same length as the flat one, with the steeplechase course having 11 fences. Due to there being seven fences in the final mile of the course. Then the hurdle course is the same length and has seven flights overall.

Aside from racing, it also has other functions for conventions such as the Tattoo Festival and business meetings such as Doncaster Dynamites BNI. It offers a variety of enclosures such as the Premier Suite exclusive to premier guests. It has a full range of draught and bottled beers, lagers, wines, and spirits, situated on the third floor of the Lazarus Stand. A county enclosure is exclusive to premier and county guests, offering several different bars, including the Champagne Lawn, Nijinsky Suite, Halmahera Bar, and the Conduit bar. Guests can also access the Saddling Boxes, Parade Ring, and Winner’s Enclosure, as well as entry to the Hallam FM Champagne Lawn, home to The Old Weighing Room Restaurant and Champagne Bar. Another is the grandstand enclosure which is available to grandstand guests. It has different bars, including the Artic Cosmos Bar, the Motivator Bar, the Septimus Bar, the Cask Ale Bar, the Lucarno Bar, the Champagne & Prosecco Bar, the Lord Clifton Bar, and the Clock Tower Bar. There is also the Family Enclosure for a family day out where guests can picnic together and access Silver Patriarch Bar with an ATM available nearby. There is no dress code for this enclosure.

For dining, it has the Home Straight Restaurant located on the third floor of the Lazarus Stand. The Conduit Restaurant is located on the second floor of the Lazarus Stand, which can also be an extension of Home Straight Restaurant. It also has the Garden Grille restaurant located on the ground floor of the Hilton Garden Inn, which guests can view the racecourse directly. It has outdoor seating, a private dining area (The Trophy Room), and the main restaurant with an open-plan live kitchen. The track also has the Old Weighing Room, the perfect venue for Private Parties and Weddings in Doncaster, Sheffield, Rotherham, and Leeds.

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.
