Parx Racing and Casino

Parx Racing and Casino is a Racino (horse-racing track and casino) in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, United States. It opened in 1974, at Bensalem Township in Bucks County.

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

It was originally named Keystone Racetrack, opened on November 4, 1974, in Bensalem, Pennsylvania. It replaced the Liberty Bell Park Racetrack in Northeast Philadelphia as the area’s Thoroughbred track. In 1984 when ITB purchased it, the racetrack race track was renamed Philadelphia Park with an additional new turf course and an innovative new way to wager called Phonebet.

In December 1990, the racetrack was again sold to another company called Greenwood Racing, Inc. Another feature was added, which is full card simulcasting and the six off-track locations called Turf Clubs. On September 27, 2006, the racetrack was allowed to construct a casino. Final approval of a permanent license came on December 20, 2006, and the following day the casino opened. Bally’s was chosen as the casino management system. The name of the casino – “Parx” – a modified spelling of the racetrack name – was unveiled following a fireworks display on July 4, 2009. Then on August 30, 2010, it was officially called Parx Racing and Casino.

It is located in Bensalem Township in Bucks County, northeast of Philadelphia, currently owned and operated by Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment, Inc.

Track Details

The track has a 1 mile(1.6 km) dirt oval and a 7 furlong – .875 miles (1.408 km) – turf oval. Since it is a Racino, they also have 3,200 slot machines, 188 live table games, a poker room with 48 poker tables, live racing and simulcast action, sports betting, several dining options and bars, and the Xcite Center. Parx also offers online gambling and online sports betting along with off-track betting at two locations.

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.
