Hippodrome Du Croisé-Laroche

Hippodrome Du Croisé-Laroche is a horse-racing track in MARCQ-en-Barœul, France. It opened in 1931 at boulevard Georges Clemenceau.

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 Hippodrome des Flandres, also known as the Hippodrome du Croisé-Laroche, is the only active horse racing field in the Nord department. It is located in Marcq-en-Baroeul, in the North, constructed in 1931 and owned by the City since 1990. The Lille Marcq-en-Barœul racecourse almost called itself the Trois Villes racecourse because it is located in the center of the Lille, Roubaix, Tourcoing triangle.

In 1990, when the owners wanted to sell the site to a real estate developer, Serge Charles, deputy mayor of Marcq-en-Baroeul, decided to preempt and acquire the site. It was then renamed Serge Charles racecourse in homage to a former mayor. All the buildings and stables were renovated in 1995, then the lighting in 2000. It was again renovated in 2010 to host the European Union Grand Prix of Trotting in October.

Track Details

It hosts trotting and galloping (flat) races on two tracks. The Turf track is an indoor grass track, 1,500 meters in length, and has a 350-meter straight line for flat races. For trotting, it has an all-weather track (cinder), an ashen outdoor track with a length of 1,665 meters, and a straight line measuring 380 meters.

The grandstand has a capacity of 1000 people, reception and performance halls, and a panoramic restaurant that can accommodate more than 1,200 people in its interior space. In addition to its equestrian activity, the site also has a golf course, show jumping careers, sports fields (two rugby and one football field, natural grass), and playgrounds for the youngest. With a tiered part outside and a closed (and heated) part, the stands can accommodate nearly 2,000 people.

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.
