Newcastle Racecourse

Newcastle Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Gosforth Park, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom. It opened in 1882, at Newcastle Racecourse.

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 history of horseracing began in the early 17th century, where the Town Moor hosted the first recorded Northumberland Plate in 1833. In 1881, the race transferred to High Gosforth Park and officially opened in the following year (1882). In 1994, Northern Racing purchased Newcastle Racecourse, then the Scottish businessman David Williamson joined Newcastle Racecourse as managing director in April 2002. In December 2013, the plan to change the flat turf course into an all-weather track while retaining a turf jump racing course was announced. That plan was then completed in early 2016, with the first meeting held on May 17.

The racecourse is located at the Gosforth Park in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, owned by Arena Racing Company. It is a 10-minute taxi journey from Newcastle Airport and around 15 miles from the city center. It is a famous UK racecourse and one of the busiest racecourses in the country. It can also host business meetings, weddings, conferences, etc.

Track Details

The racecourse is in 812 acres of land. The flat and National Hunt track are about 1 mile 6 furlongs circuit, with easy to negotiate bends. It can accommodate straight track flat races from 5 furlongs to a straight mile. The all-weather track (Flat Track) has a surface Tapeta.

It also offers bars and eating venues from fast food to fine dining. The Premier Enclosure is where guests can access all public areas of the racecourse, including Cocktail Lounge Bar, Colonel Porters Hall, Winners’ Enclosure and Pre-Parade Ring, Parade Ring, and all bars and catering outlets. On the other hand, the Grandstand and Paddock Enclosure give access to the Grandstand Hall, Lawns, and Parade Ring.

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.
