Dover Downs

Dover Downs is a a hotel, casino, and racetrack complex in Dover, Delaware, United States. It opened in 1969, at North Dupont Highway.

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

In 1969, the horse track and the speedway were opened simultaneously. It began with the concept of a multi-sports facility. Horse racing was conducted on the inner dirt oval while auto racing on the one-mile outer oval.

In March 1969, thoroughbreds paraded for the first race on the track, and in November, Standardbreds made their first appearance. The pacers and trotters still run, but the flat runners disappeared at the end of 1974. Then by the 1990s, the State of Delaware approved slot machines.

In 2002, the complex’s parent company, Dover Downs Entertainment, spun off the horse track and casino as an independent company, Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment. Then changed its name to Dover Motorsports.

By autumn of 2007, they expanded the hotel, adding 268 additional rooms, including 52 suites and 11 spa suites, for 500 hotel rooms. Making the Dover Downs the largest hotel in Delaware Toppers Spa/Salon opened on December 29, 2007. In late 2013, they started to expand their influences into the online gambling realm.

Specifically, it is located at 1131 North Dupont Highway Dover, Delaware, now owned by Twin River Worldwide Holdings. The race type is Harness racing, and the course type is thoroughbred – Flat racing. Its live racing is from November to April, with a racing calendar scheduled every Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Some notable races housed the track is Dover Downs Progress Pace, Matron Series.

Track Details

The main track is 5/8 mile, bowl-shaped, with a distance from the last turn to the finish line of 500 feet. The grandstand can accommodate 4,200 seats, while the clubhouse is 400, and the parking lot fits 1,200 vehicles.

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.
