Monmouth Park – Monmouth Park Jockey Club

Monmouth Park is a horse-racing track in Oceanport, New Jersey, United States. It opened in 1870, at Oceanport Ave.

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

An American race track for thoroughbred horse racing in Oceanport, New Jersey, United States, just three miles from Long Branch, opened on July 30, 1870, owned by the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, operated under a five-year lease as a partnership with Darby Development, LLC.

The innovative ideas of New York businessman John F. Chamberlain, New Jersey Senate President Amos Robbins, and Adams Express Company President John Hoey produced this racetrack. Monmouth Park has been a Shore tradition since 1870, and three buildings have carried the name Monmouth Park in the last 139 years.

It was called “Newmarket of America”, as it became a famous racecourse in England. However, three years after the first Monmouth Park was opened, hardships forced the track to close. Through a syndicate operation under George L. Lorillard, D.D. Withers, G.P. Wetmore, and James Gordon Bennett, the track was reopened. Then because of its overwhelming popularity, a new racecourse was stood adjacent to the existing track, and in 1890 the second Monmouth Park was opened.

However, in 1891, problems surfaced again when the Monmouth Park meet was moved to Jerome Park and Morris Park while state legislation tried to suppress pari-mutuel wagering. Unfortunately, on March 21, 1894, wagering on horses was legally banned. The track was closed, and the land was sold. After 53-year hiatus, the track was reopened for the third time on June 19, 1946, under the new leadership of Haskell, Philip H. Iselin, Reeve Schley, Joseph M. Roebling, Townsend B. Martin, John MacDonald, and James Cox Brady, with a new name Monmouth Park Jockey Club.

Track Details

The main track is a one-mile (1.6 km) dirt oval with chutes for 6 furlongs and 1¼ mile races. The turf course is seven furlongs in circumference, with a diagonal chute between 1-mile (1.6 km) and 1⅛ miles. Turf races can be run along the hedge or with the portable rail out 12 feet (dubbed the “Haskell Course”), 24 feet (“Monmouth Course”), or 36 feet (“Lennox Course”).

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.
