Los Alamitos Racecourse

Los Alamitos Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Cypress, California, United States. It opened in 1951, at Katella Avenue.

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 man who founded Los Alamitos Race Course is the patriarch of the fabled Vessels family, Frank Vessels, Sr.

He began with only $19 going to California from Kentucky in 1920, and after nearly three decades of perseverance, he began with building a small company that specialized in making drilling platforms for the oil business. Then after 20 years, he finally had sufficient money to construct a racetrack on a portion of his 435-acre Orange County ranch.

In 1951, the first pari-mutuel meeting occurred, and the 11-day affair was pelted by constant raining on the day the track was opened. The damage caused by the rain challenged the perseverance of Frank Sr. along with his wife Grace, his son Frank Jr., and his son’s wife, Millie, again.

The track was owned and operated by a member of the Vessels family within 35 years. However, in the mid-1980s, the track had been passed with different owners; not until 1990, Ed Allred become the sole owner of Los Alamitos Race Course.

Track Details

Under Allred’s leadership, the track has undergone drastic changes and has enjoyed tremendous growth. The addition of The Vessels Club, an $8 million lavish Turf Club built by Allred and named in honor of the founding family of the track.

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.
