Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack, and Resort

Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack, and Resort is a horse-racing track in New Cumberland, West Virginia, United States. It opened in 1951, at Mountaineer Cir.

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

Its former name Waterford Downs is originated from Al Boyle’s family ancestral home of Waterford, Ireland, which is also the president of the Charles Town Races. Although it was approved to open in 1937, construction only began in 1948 after World War II.

In 1950, its name changed to Waterford Park, and the opening day was finally held on May 19, 1951. Then in the mid-1950s, James F. Edwards purchased the track and was purchased again by Bill Blair and renamed it Mountaineer Park, in 1987. In 1992, the track was sold again to California-based Excalibur Holding Corporation. After two years, the track installed slot machines (making it the first Racino in the US). Excalibur was renamed Winners Entertainment, then renamed MTR Gaming Group. Eldorado Resorts, which merged with MTR Gaming in 2014, sold Mountaineer and two other properties to Century Casinos and Vici Properties in 2019.

Track Details

It is a thoroughbred racetrack and casino resort situated at the Ohio River north of New Cumberland, West Virginia, currently owned by Vici Properties and operated by Century Casinos.

The track has a main dirt track with a one-mile oval, while the turf course is seven furlongs long, which is inside the dirt. The track is curved slightly in the front stretch. The grandstand is open, which can accommodate 5,800, while the clubhouse’s capacity is 1,600. But over the years, both the grandstand and clubhouse became glass-enclosed. The stables can capacitate 1,100 horses.

History

The race track was originally a part of the slough into which three creeks drain, the Schoolhouse Creek, Codornices Creek, and Marin Creek. It was also used as a transshipment point for sending cattle across the bay to San Francisco for slaughter and processing. Then, later on, purchased by a Giant Powder Company and recorded that the plant blew up twice between the years 1879 and 1892.

Just before World War II, the Golden Gate Fields opened in 1941. Shortly right after the opening, Golden Gate Fields created the Golden Gate Handicap. In 1950, Noor and Citation met in that event and were considered the most exciting horse racing rivalries in the sport’s history for some fans. In the summer of 2007, a synthetic track was installed and called Tapeta. The owners changed through time, and the current owner, The Stronach Group, purchased the Golden Gate Fields on July 3, 2011, to salvage from its bankruptcy.

Today, it is an American horse racing track straddling both Albany, California, and Berkeley, California, along the shoreline of San Francisco Bay adjacent to the Eastshore Freeway in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Track Details

The track is set on 140 acres (0.57 km2) of land, which includes a one-mile (1,609 m) synthetic track and a turf course measuring 9/10 of a mile, or 7 furlongs plus 132 feet (1,448 m), and stalls for 1,420 horses. The main grandstand can accommodate approximately 8,000 customers, while the clubhouse has seating that can accommodate approximately 5,200 customers, a Turf Club with seating for approximately 1,500 customers, and parking for over 8,500 cars.

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.
