Huntingdon Racecourse

Huntingdon Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Brampton, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, England. It opened in 1886 at Thrapston 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

Opened in 1886, a part of The Jockey Club, the largest commercial group in horse racing, existed for more than 260 years. It can be easily accessed from all parts of the country, situated only half a mile from Junction 22 of the A14. The A14 links with the A1, M1, M11, and M6. It allows easy access from the North and South, along with the West Midlands and East Coast.

The most notable race run at Huntingdon is the Peterborough chase held in December and first took place in 1969. The most popular day of the year is usually the traditional Boxing Day meeting when the crowds arrive in their thousands for a festive day out at the races. Another recently introduced race is the Mascot’s Grand National in September, a fun race designed for football club mascots in full costume, attracting plenty of coverage.

It is one of the friendliest horse racecourses in Britain. In 1953, the course was redeveloped, and establishments were renovated, including the grandstand. It is governed by the Royal Charter and voted as ‘Best Small Racecourse’ in the South Midlands and East Anglia by the Racegoers Club in 2012 and 2014.

Track Details

The course is a right-handed oval with easy bends and is a flat, fast track about one-and-a-half miles in length. There are nine fences to a circuit, some of them rather tricky, and the water jump was filled in during summer 2008, AstroTurf replacing the water. Huntingdon favors horses with speed over stamina, sluggards seen to best advantage only under extremely testing conditions.

It also offers conferences and events for weddings, shows, exhibitions, and car boot sales. It has spacious on-site parking, is free for all racegoers, and is easily accessible from the A14 Junction 22. It has a main enclosure, winners’ enclosure, and picnic enclosure. It has Peterborough Chase Restaurant, Champagne & Seafood Bar, and too, along with Lentons Bar and the Hurdles Bistro.

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.
