Market Rasen Racecourse

Market Rasen Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. It opened in 1924 at Legsby 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

It is located at Legsby Road, Market Rasen, East Midlands, LN8 3EA, featuring National Hunt with 20 race meetings taking place each year. It is located at a geographical location where three Hunts meet, the Brocklesby, Southwold, and Burton. This fact directly impacted the naming of the race company, which was formed as “Market Rasen United Hunts Steeplechases Limited. Following the closure of the Lincoln racecourse in the 1960s, Market Rasen is now the only remaining track in the area. It is also famous as a premier summer jumping racecourse.

In 1967, the course was sold to Racecourse Holding Trust, although Victor Lucas still retained his post as managing director. Since he has a significant contribution to the course development, Market Rasen hosts the Victor Lucas Memorial Chase every year in his honor.

Track Details

It has a right-handed and sharp racecourse, mainly flat with only minor undulations. The almost rectangular-shaped track is short and measures just 1m2f round. The steeplechase course has eight jumps, in which the fifth fence lies on falling ground. The hurdles course features five flights, two of which are in the home straight prior to the winning post. Other than the differing height of the obstacles, both courses are sharp and favor nippy types except on the soft and heavy ground.

It offers enclosures as well. First is the County Enclosure, which gives guests to all other enclosures. Next is the Tattersalls Admission which guests can watch the horses as they parade in the Parade Ring and get up close to the Winners’ Enclosure. There are also various bars and eateries, including the Exacta Bar and Red Rum Bar. Lastly is the Lawn Enclosure, where guests can view the Parade Ring, Playground for the Children, and Victor Lucas Bar.

Other facilities available in the area are baby facilities, conference or meeting facilities, ground floor rooms, lift, restaurant, Café, and Tea room. There are also coach parking, disabled access, disabled parking, accessible toilet, free wifi, guided tours, and a hearing loop system.

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.
