Eldorado Gaming Scioto Downs

Eldorado Gaming Scioto Downs is a Racino (horse-racing track and casino) in Columbus, Ohio, United States. It opened in 1959, at South High Street.

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

Since 1959, the track was opened as the first racino in Ohio, located on route 23 and less than 10 miles from downtown Columbus, Ohio, and approximately 25 minutes by car to Columbus International Airport. Its name now is Eldorado Gaming Scioto Downs, which was formerly named Scioto Downs Racino.

The track was sold to MTR Gaming Group in 2003, and they merged with Eldorado Resorts in 2014. The casino in the track was opened on June 1, 2012, and brought over 2,100 of the most popular Video Lottery Terminal games (commonly known as “Slots”) to Central Ohio and was annexed from Hamilton Township, Franklin County, Ohio, operated by MTR Gaming Group. In May 2013, the track introduced a live outdoor summer music concert series with national acts, primarily in country, rock, and blues genres.

In March 2020, it was shut down due to state-mandated Covid 19 restrictions. One year later, Scioto Downs had record-breaking revenues in March 2021 after all restrictions were lifted.

Track Details

The track is a 5/8-mile oval dirt harness racing track with a 539 feet home stretch. Its grandstand can accommodate up to 10,000 people, while the clubhouse area can host 2,400. The casino is 117,000 square feet (10,900 m2), with over 2,200 VLTs. It also offers a year-round horse racing simulcast room, live harness racing from May to September, and an all-around entertainment venue that hosts live outdoor music concerts focused on rock, blues, and country music. The stable area can house up to 840 horses, while the parking lot can hold over 4,000 cars.

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.
