Goodwood Racecourse

Goodwood Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, United Kingdom. It opened in 1815, at Nottingham Hill.

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

A horseracing track located at the Selhurstpark Rd, Chichester PO18 0PS, United Kingdom, five miles north of Chichester, West Sussex, in England, controlled by the family of the Duke of Richmond, whose seat is nearby Goodwood House, owned by Goodwood Estate.

Since 1801, horseracing had taken place on top of the South Downs, when the 3rd Duke of Richmond held a private race meeting for the Sussex Militia. By then, the success led to holding its first public race meeting the following year.

It hosts the annual Glorious Goodwood meeting in late July and early August, which is one of the highlights of the British flat racing calendar. It is also home to three of the UK’s 36 annual Group 1 flat races, the Sussex Stakes, the Goodwood Cup, and the Nassau Stakes. Although the race meeting has become known as ‘Glorious Goodwood’, it is sponsored by Qatar and officially called the Qatar Goodwood Festival.

Track Details

Aside from horse racing, it also hosts two world-famous motorsport events and has two championship golf courses. It also has a Goodwood Hotel with 91 suites and bedrooms, two restaurants, and extensive leisure facilities.

It has Blue Badge parking spaces available close to the racecourse entrances at the front of Car Park 5 and 8 for vehicles displaying a valid badge. It also has a shuttle buggy service with bespoke wheelchair access. There are three dedicated raised viewing platforms located on the rails by the track, which provide clear, close-up visibility of the action. The Richmond platform is located in front of the Richmond Lawn Bar, the new Gordon platform is located in front of the Sussex Stand, and the Lennox platform is located on the Gordon/Lennox dividing fence.

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.
