Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park

Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park is a Racino (horse-racing track and casino) in Pompano Beach, Florida, United States. It opened in 1964, at Isle of Capri Circle.

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 track’s official name is Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park; however, mostly known as Pompano Park. It is a standardbred harness racing track and casino located in Pompano Beach, South Florida. Its promotional name is “The Winter Home of Harness Racing” because of the location’s tropical weather condition, which is a perfect alternative for horsemen as most of the racetracks at the north have cold weather conditions.

Originally, there was already a built racetrack located on the same site in Pompano Park since 1926 with a grandstand that can accommodate 7,000 guests and the mile track composed of clay and sand that is 100 feet wide. However, pari-mutuel betting was still illegal during those years, so even if the grand opening on Christmas Day of 1926 was a great success, racing events were still put to stop as Governor John Martin nicknamed the Pompano Park “a center of lawbreakers”. Hence, the original race track was then utilized for automobile races, polo, and boxing matches. However, did not become prosperous.

In 1928, the said track became a Red Cross station when a hurricane ruined South Florida. Then in 1953, the track became dormant until when Fred Van Lennep discovered the old track. The track was built and opened on February 4, 1964. The track is famous as the “Winter Capital of Harness Racing” and the only track with a nighttime standardbred harness racing in Florida since its 1964 inaugural season. However, Van Lennep died in 1987, so the track management was passed on to the late John A. Cashman, Jr. for the Van Lennep estate. It is currently owned by the Caesars Entertainment, and converted into a racino with slot machines.

Track Details

The main track is a 5/8-mile oval, and the distance from the last turn to the finish line is 608 feet. It currently offers live poker games under betting limitations imposed by Florida law. They also have approximately 50 caretakers that live on the backstretch of the track and approximately 650 horses stabled. Pompano simulcasts horse races from all over the USA and Canada, allowing its patrons to wager on racing approximately 363 days per year.

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.
