Exeter Racecourse

Exeter Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Kennford, Exeter, Devon, England.

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 the middle of the 17th century, horse racing has been part of Exeter’s heritage, one of many racecourses created due to Charles II’s passion for the sport. Moreover, claims said that the racecourse is one of the oldest in the country. Horse racing rules were standardized after the Jockey Club was established in 1750. It is also one of the UK’s most progressive tracks due to its excellent facilities and transport links to match competitive racing throughout the National Hunt Season.

The racecourse was formerly known as Haldon racecourse by locals due to its location. Then called Devon and Exeter Racecourse until the 1990s lastly renamed again recently to Exeter Racecourse. It is owned by Jockey Club Racecourses, located near the city of Exeter, Devon, England, just off the A38 Devon Expressway, and a short drive or taxi ride from the city. Moreover, at 850 feet (260 m) above sea level, the racecourse is the highest in the United Kingdom.

Originally, the racetrack was described as a “fine oval course of two miles”, though in the 1850s, an additional flat course was added, one mile long, making the total course length three miles. In the 1940s, the steeplechase matched the line of the original course. One lap of the course includes eleven fences, two of which are open ditches and one a water jump.

Track Details

It has a covered grandstand that is 75 feet (23 m) long and 32 feet (9.8 m) deep, can accommodate 600 people, established in 1911. The stand was made of steel but with an iron roof and held a bar, a weigh-room and other facilities, and storage space. The three stands are named Haldon, Anstey, and Brockman. Anne opened the Haldon stand, Princess Royal, in 2004 and caters for the premier ticket holders, while Lord Woodrow Wyatt opened the Anstey stand in 1986. Upstairs in the Haldon stand, there is a gallery with seating to watch the races and a bar named after Best Mate, as well as the Desert Orchid restaurant. For non-premier ticket holders, there is the Romany King bar and burger van.

They also offer settings for conferences and meetings; exhibitions; celebrations including Weddings, Private parties, and Wakes/Memorials; outdoor Events; and Christmas parties.

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.
