Fraser Downs

Fraser Downs is a horse-racing track in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. It opened in 1975, at 60th Avenue.

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

It was opened in 1975. Originally, Fraser Downs was called Cloverdale Raceway and was only renamed when it underwent renovation in 1996. In the early 1990s, Jim Sr., the owner of the track, eventually passed the responsibility of running the business to his son Jim Jr. Unfortunately, Jim Jr. suddenly died in 1996. Hence the ownership was once again transferred to his son Chuck.

The addition of slot machines to Fraser Downs was approved by the Surrey City Council in December 2003. Construction rapidly began after the month of approval, and the opening of the permanent Casino with over 400 slots occurred in November 2004. The grand opening of the wholly remodeled Casino was in October 2005, hoping to increase the guests and stimulate harness racing on the west coast. This would aid in revitalizing the Fraser Valley to be one of the top entertainment locations in the Lower Mainland.

Today, Fraser Downs is a proud part of Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, British Columbia’s foremost casino and gaming operator and the largest community-based gaming management company in Western Canada. It is located at 60th Avenue in Surrey, British Columbia, Fraser Downs.

Track Details

They offer excellent harness racing and casino gambling all year long. It also offers fans live standardbred horse racing between September and May on a 5/8ths mile harness track with a homestretch of 677 feet and a speed rating of 2:004.

The clubhouse capacity can accommodate 7,000 people, with seating that can accommodate 19,000 fans in the grandstand. Generally, they are open from 9 am to 4 am on weekdays and a full 24 hours a day on weekends. A total of 420 different machines offer Touch Bet Roulette and electronic blackjack. People can also visit the Clubhouse Buffet Restaurant (only open during live racing events) and the Longshots Show Lounge (which offers live entertainment on Fridays and Saturdays, with free coffee, tea, and soft drinks for all players).

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.
