Hastings Racecourse

Hastings Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Vancouver , British Columbia, Canada. It opened in 1889, at Renfrew St.

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 all started way back in 1888 when a request was sent to the provincial government in Victoria for land in the Hastings Townsite for a new park. The East Park was granted for the city to use as “recreational and enjoyment” of the public. Then in 1889, Vancouver’s earliest horse racing event took place along Howe Street at the heart of the city.

In the 1950s, the demolition of the PNE’s original Giant Dipper rollercoaster resulted the expansion of the racing oval to its current five-eighths mile. In 1965, a 5,000-seat grandstand was built, and the north end was leveled. In the same year, new grandstands were added, and in 1968 were the installation of lights and the beginning of the night racing.

The racetrack was almost to its end when it had its low profits from wagering revenue, and slots had difficulty reaching an agreeable new lease with the city on May 18, 2011. Fortunately, negotiations have been made for the survival of the track. Then in 2012, international headlines boosted the track when little-known Mexican-born jockey Mario Gutierrez won the Santa Anita Derby, the Kentucky Derby, and the Preakness Stakes aboard I’ll Have Another.

It is open from April to October, while its live racing is conducted on Saturdays and Sundays from April until November and Friday nights from June to September. Hastings Racecourse is located at 188 N. Renfrew St., Vancouver, British Columbia V5K 3N8, just four kilometers from downtown Vancouver of the North Shore mountains and Burrard Inlet.

Track Details

Its race-type is Thoroughbred racing with flat five furlongs, owned by Great Canadian Gaming. The capacity of their grandstand is 5,000, with a diamond Club overlooking the track and seating for up to 600 persons.

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.
