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 Flamboro Downs is located at 967 Highway 5 West Dundas, ON L9H 5E2. Since 1972, the planning commenced when a local farmer, horseman, and politician, Honorable Ray Connell, decided that a racetrack was necessary in the area. He had just retired from provincial politics, serving as Minister of Public Works when he planned it. He approached Mr. Charles Juravinski, a potential investor and a local building contractor who had closed his construction company, was timely looking to invest in a new venture. Mr. Juravinski’s partner was Mr. William McCann, who was also interested in the new venture. The construction began in 1974 and was completed in April 1975. It was officially opened to the public on April 9, 1975.

Mr. Connell retired in his mid-eighties and Mr. Grant in the early nineties, leaving only Mr. Juravinski and Mr. McCann as owners. However, Mr. McCann, too retired in the late nineties, that made Mr. Juravinski as the sole owner until the company was purchased in 2002 by the Magna Entertainment Corp. Then in October of 2005, it was then again sold to Great Canadian Gaming Corporation. It is a corporation based out of British Columbia, and its properties are several casinos, hotels, and racetracks across Canada and Washington State.

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.
