Epsom Downs Racecourse

Epsom Downs Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Epsom, Surrey, United Kingdom. It opened in 1661, at Epsom Downs.

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

Although there were already early race days at Epsom in the 1640s, the first officially recorded race meeting in Britain took place at Epsom on March 7, 1661. By 1779, the first big race was established, then the next year came the Epsom Derby. In, 1784 the course was extended to its current distance (a mile and a half), and Tattenham Corner was introduced. It stages the Greatest Flat Race in the World, the Group One Investec Derby. In 2009 the racecourse opened the new Duchess’s Stand.

A Grade 1 racecourse on the hills associated with the North Downs in Surrey, England, is used for thoroughbred horse racing. The “Downs” referred to in the name are part of the North Downs. The Chairman of the course since 2015 is Julia Budd, and the owner is the Jockey Club Racecourses.

Track Details

The course can accommodate up to 130,000 guests. Its course type is flat, and the shape of the turf course closely resembles the letter “U” rather than a traditional oval-shaped track. Once the horses make their way up to the top of the hill, they must make an immediate left-hand turn and head straight downhill. This last portion of the race is predominantly downhill and lasts for about a half-mile. The final 100-yard stretch forces the horses to climb back up a small hill before crossing the finish line.

The ticket fee depends on each fixture, in which the standard advanced price is £16 and £20 on the day, for adults while kids are for free. However, this excludes the Investec Derby Festival and Music Nights.

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.
