Punchestown Racecourse

Punchestown Racecourse is a horse-racing track in County Kildare, Ireland. It opened in 1875 at parish of Eadestown.

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

Punchestown Races were acknowledged and reconstituted as “Kildare and National Hunt Steeplechases” in 1861. It is located in the parish of Eadestown, between the R410 and R411 regional roads near Naas, County Kildare, in Ireland, opened in 1875. Renowned as the home of Irish National Hunt (jump) racing in Ireland and has the only cross-country banks course in the country. It is also the only racecourse in Ireland to continue to host cross country racing, the very founder of modern era steeplechasing.

Track Details

Its track for chase and hurdle is a right-handed oval and undulating, galloping track featuring two distinctly different tests for chasers and hurdles. It is also home to Ireland’s only cross-country track, a long twisting course with both tight left and right-handed turns, including a variety of obstacles. Only the final brush fence is located on the racecourse proper, and it is often a scene for older veterans to regather former glories for some great prize money.

It offers a Panoramic Restaurant, a The Punchestown Food Hall, 12 public bar areas, Private Suites, The chalets, and Free Parking space for up to 17,000 cars. A Junior Jockey Fun Club also occurs in selected race meetings, offering an indoor entertainment area including fun and games for children with bouncy castles and a creative corner.

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.
