Newmarket Racecourse

Newmarket Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. It opened in 1667, at Newmarket.

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 racecourse was founded in 1636, spearheaded by King Charles II for its enhancement and expansion in Newmarket. By 1667, the racecourse formally opened, and King Charles had ridden the victorious horse in the 1671 Newmarket Town Plate. There were seven annual meetings in 1840. In 1999, the Newmarket program was moved to the July Course while the new Millennium Grandstand at the Rowley Mile was constructed.

In 2008, due to waterlogging at York, several races from the Ebor Festival were staged at the July Course, including three Group 1 races – the Yorkshire Oaks, the Nunthorpe, and the Juddmonte International.

It is located in Newmarket, Suffolk, England. A British Thoroughbred horse racing venue composed of two individual racecourses, the Rowley Mile and the July Course. Now, it is owned by Jockey Club Racecourses. The racecourse is often referred to as the headquarters of British horseracing and is home to the country’s largest cluster of training yards. It is also the only racecourse in the UK to remain operational as a horse racing venue throughout the war (World War II) and one of the most famous and iconic racecourses in the entire world. Newmarket also has airstrips for use by light aircraft, which, amongst other occasions, were utilized during the Second World War by the RAF.

Track Details

The track is made up of two courses, the Rowley Mile Course and the July Course. Both are wide, galloping tracks for Flat racing only, each with a capacity of over 20,000. Both courses have grass airstrips for use by light aircraft.

The Rowley Mile Course has a 1 mile 2 furlong (2 km) straight with minor undulations towards ‘The Bushes’ and two furlongs (400 m) out. The penultimate furlong (200 m) is downhill, and the last is uphill, forming ‘The Dip.’ Races beyond 1m 2f start on the ‘Cesarewitch’ or ‘Beacon’ course, which turns are right-handed into the straight.

The other July Course, also sometimes called the Summer Course, has a 1 mile (1600 m) straight, known as ‘The Bunbury Mile.’ There is a long downhill stretch after 2 furlongs (400 m) before the uphill furlong (200 m) to the finish. This course also uses the ‘Cesarewitch/Beacon’ course for longer distances, again turning right into the straight.

It also has a third course, the Round Course, but only once a year for the Newmarket Town Plate. If races need to be extended on the Rowley Mile Course, the Cesarewitch or the Beacon Course can be implemented.

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.
