Meadowlands Racetrack

Meadowlands Racetrack is a horse-racing track in East Rutherford, New Jersey, United States. It opened in 1976, at 1 Racetrack Drive.

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 Meadowlands Racetrack is currently referred to as Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment. It is located in East Rutherford, New Jersey, United States, opened in 1976, and operated by New Meadowlands Racetrack LLC, and Jeff Gural as its CEO and chairman. It is famous in the region as “The Big M”, and most of its races are night. In 1977, it was noted for its use of the slogan “Racing with the Moon”, originally popularized in 1941 by bandleader Vaughn Monroe. With its sweeping curves and wide stretches, the “Big M” has been known for exceptional times for harness racing. Autumn has been dedicated to the thoroughbreds, while the rest features standardbreds or harness horses.

Meadowlands Racetrack held its first-ever harness race on September 1, 1976, while thoroughbred racing commenced on September 6, 1977. The new Hambletonian race format was introduced in 1992. Then in December 2011, the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority privatized the racetrack to Jeffrey Gural. By July 14, 2018, the sportsbook opened under the branding of FanDuel, a daily fantasy sports service recently acquired by the company.

Track Details

The main track, which is for Harness and Thoroughbred Racing, is one mile oval with a stretch length of 990 feet, and the distance from the finish line to the first turn is 330 feet. Its width of stretch is 90 feet, while the width of the backstretch is 80 feet. The Harness Surface is composed of limestone base and crushed stone dust cushion (Pylons replaced the hub rail in 1991), while Thoroughbred Surface is composed of sand, clay, and loam cushion.

On the other hand, Turf Course for Thoroughbred measures 7/8 mile and oval. Turf races are run on the Main Course [on the rail], the Red Course [10 feet from rail], the White Course [17 feet from rail], and the Blue Course [23 feet from rail]. The backstretch area has 16 barns and seven dormitories. The capacity is for 1,760 horses and 700 people, with a stable capacity of 1,454 stalls.

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.
