Haydock Park Racecourse

Haydock Park Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Merseyside, North West England, United Kingdom. It opened in 1899, at the Newton-le-Willows.

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 located at Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside WA12 0HQ, in Northwest England, set in an area of parkland bounded by the towns of Haydock to the west, Ashton-in-Makerfield to the north, Golborne to the east, and Newton-le-Willows to the south.

The track’s location is also accessible from all directions, situated just one mile from Junction 23 of the M6. The nearest station to Haydock Park is Newton-le-Willows, which is regularly serviced by trains from Manchester and Liverpool, and with the station just three miles from the track, it is easily reached on foot or by taxi. There are also regular bus services from Liverpool city center. It is also often advertised as being conveniently situated at equal distances from both Manchester and Liverpool, and yet despite this proximity to industry, the actual course is in a setting of woodland and tree-lined avenues.

It opened in 1899 when the demand for an enormous site arose due to the sport’s growing popularity around. The track runs both flat and National Hunt races each year. It was also awarded Racecourse of the Year in both 1998 and 2000.

It is owned and operated by The Jockey Club, featuring meetings such as the Grand National Trial in February, The Temple Stakes in May, the Old Newton Cup and Lancashire Oaks in July, the Sprint Cup in September, and the Betfair Chase in November.

Track Details

The track for Flat races is left-handed, flat, oval-shaped, about thirteen furlongs round, with a run-in of four and a half furlongs which rises slightly throughout. Sprints take place on the straight six-furlong course, with runners usually racing down the center of the track.

For Jumps, the track is also left-handed, flat, which conditions are often grueling during winter, emphasizing stamina. This oval-shaped track is 1m5f in circumference with a steep uphill throughout the long and testing four-and-a-half furlong run to the post. There is also a chute leading onto the home straight, allowing for sprint races of up to six furlongs. It used to have a reputation of being a tricky course to navigate, but the new and less stiff portable fences mean that it no longer poses too much of a jumping challenge.

The whole site can accommodate up to 20,000 guests, consisting of four grandstands and 33 private viewing suites, restaurants, champagne bar leading, and conference facilities. The main conference rooms have Wi-Fi and closed-circuit TV systems. Hospitality packages at Haydock can cater for up to 400 guests, while the facilities are also available off-season to host private parties, conferences, and weddings. On race days, prices for boxes start from £275 + VAT per person, while for stag and hen parties, the facilities are priced from £102 per head. There are three reserved car parks and an additional one with unrestricted use, all for free.

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.
