Durbanville Racecourse

Durbanville Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Durbanville, Cape Town, South Africa.

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

The Durbanville Racecourse is a horse racing track and one of only two race courses in the Western Cape, located in Durbanville, in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town, situated right next to the Durbanville Nature Reserve. Recognized and famous for its relaxing atmosphere and its 2000m oval course. Aside from hosting horse racing events, the facilities at the horse racing club are also available for hire for events such as weddings, parties, and more. The main function venue can accommodate 120 seats with a braai area, a bar, and kitchen facilities.

Track Details

It is a left-handed 2000m near the oval course, with a run-in of 600m and no straight course. The home straight is a downward slope almost until the finish. Moreover, it also has drainage, appropriate for winter racing. It is home to the Diana Stakes, a Grade 3 sprint for fillies and mares, usually held in October, and home to the World Sports Betting Matchem 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.
