Great Yarmouth Racecourse

Great Yarmouth Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, United Kingdom. It opened in 1715, at Jellicoe Rd.

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 is known as ‘Yarmouth Races’ or called ‘Yarco Races’ by the residents in the local area. The first-ever recorded race at Yarmouth was in 1715, and thoroughbred horseracing began in 1810.

The track was originally located in the South Denes area. However, the local fishing industry needed more space for expansion in the South Denes area, so the grandstands were dismantled and relocated to the new North Denes site. In 1920, after the racing was suspended because of World War I, the meetings resumed across the road in the North Denes site, where it is currently located, near the sandy beach, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. It is situated to the north of Great Yarmouth towards Caister.

It was owned by the local authorities until 2001, when Great Yarmouth Racecourse was purchased by the Northern Racing. In 2012, it merged with Arena Racing Company, which currently manages the racecourse. In 2015, it underwent extensive redevelopment to level the home straight of the track. It hosts 24 race days crammed in between April and October. It features the John Musker Fillies Stakes.

Track Details

The track is narrow, flat, oval, and approximately 13 furlongs long. Galloping in nature, with each long straight measuring about five furlongs. The two left-handed bends at either end are rather sharp, but they are separated by two very long and largely even straights.

It offers Grandstand and Paddock Enclosure, which offers a variety of food outlets, bars, and betting kiosks and gives you access to two Grandstands with terraced viewing. It includes access to the parade ring, winners’ enclosure, family lawns, and a children’s playground.

On the other hand, Premier Enclosure offers access also to the grandstand and paddock facilities. Aside from that, it includes access to the Victory Bar, the Hoops Marquee, the Trafalgar Restaurant, and the trackside premier lawn.

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.
