Hippodrome de la Côte d’Azur

Hippodrome de la Côte d’Azur is a horse-racing track in Cagnes-sur-Mer, France. It opened in 1960, at Bd J F Kennedy.

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

The racecourse of the Côte d’Azur is located in the town of Cagnes-sur-Mer, in the Alpes-Maritimes, on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. It was opened in the early 1950s with temporary infrastructure and officially inaugurated in 1960. It is the second biggest racecourse in France in terms of meetings. It hosts the Grand Criterium Speed of the Côte d’Azur, one of the great trotting classics in Europe.

Track Details

A sixty hectares with a capacity of 11300 people, including 6000 in the stand. It also has sixteen hectares of grass trails, a fiberglass track, and a red dirt track. The outer Fibresand track is a perfectly level, left-handed oval measuring 1 3/8 miles with wide, sweeping Belmont-like turns. The oval has four layers: the one 1/4-mile turf course, the jump racing course, the trotting track, and the training tracks. The trotting bunch shares with the flat racing community, racing on 13 days and nights when the Thoroughbred crowd is off pursuing extracurricular activities.

Peculiarly, horses are all stabled on the “backstretch”, called the top of the stretch by the Americans. Then every morning, workouts are being practiced on track while trainers and jockeys rent apartments for the duration, just like they would at Saratoga or Deauville, France’s Normandy coast August getaway.

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.
