History

The history of horse racing in Nottingham first occurred as early as 1689 on the Forest Racecourse, on which the Forest Recreation now stands. Still, the first meeting at Colwick Park, on land belonging to the former Colwick Hall estate, was not staged until 1892. In 1992, Nottingham Racecourse celebrated its centenary by completing a new members’ stand when Desert Orchid officially opened. The racecourse originally staged both Flat and National Hunt racing but, National Hunt racing ceased in 1996. Nowadays, it stages 18 Flat racing fixtures between April and November.

Its own station served it until the late 1960s, when the line was shut down. There are still remnants of the station wall on what is now Colwick loop road. In 2014, it was awarded the prestigious Gold Standard by the Racehorse Owners Association, acknowledging the upgrading and quality of its facilities.

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.
