Listowel Races

Listowel Races is a horse-racing track in Listowel, County Kerry, Ireland. It opened in 1858 at Tralee Road.

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

A horse racing venue in Listowel, County Kerry, Ireland, 25 km north-east of Tralee, 110 km north-west of Cork, and 80 km south-west of Limerick. It stages both National Hunt and Flat racing in July and September, founded in 1858 in County Kerry. It is also one of Ireland’s oldest and most successful racing festivals.

The origin of Listowel races can be traced back to an annual gathering at Ballyeigh, Ballybunion, when horse racing was part of the entertainment alongside games and faction fights (essentially organized gang fights). On June 24, 1834, the fighting eventually caused too much disruption, causing over 200 lay dead, and meetings at Ballyeigh were subsequently suspended, allowing the switch to Listowel to occur soon after.

It was in 1959, the Arrival of Macardle Moore Breweries as sponsors (subsequently part of Guinness UDV Ireland). Spring Meetings began in 1966, one day in March and Two days in April. In 1987, the Listowel Races supporters club was established. The Harvest Festival at Listowel remains one of the most significant weeks in the racing calendar, while the Kerry National Handicap Chase is the biggest race of the week.

Track Details

The track consists of a 1 mile, 2-furlong mile oval left-handed track with National Hunt fences and hurdles. It is tight and undulating. There are five fences to a circuit of the chase track, with two in the home straight of less than two furlongs. The run-in is around 200 yards. The Stable Yard facilities include 147 stables with horse-shower facilities, canteen with hot food for stable staff. There are also corporate suites, restaurants, bars, betting shops, retail outlets, and closed-circuit TV coverage with a big screen at the September Festival Meeting.

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.
