Racecourse Lyon

Racecourse Lyon is a horse-racing track in Vaulx-en-Velin, France. It opened in 1900, at avenue Bohlen.

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 inaugurated on October 14, 1900, located at 1 avenue Bohlen – 69120 Vaulx en Velin, 15 minutes from the center of Lyon, and straddles the towns of Vaulx en Velin and Villeurbanne. In 2005 the project to rearrange the stands and scales was launched, which work began in 2007 and was completed in 2009. On April 4, 2009, the new racecourse was inaugurated and changed its name to Lyon la Soie racecourse.

It also hosts themed days regularly, where equestrian shows occur, and even recently, completely unusual camel races. Each year, more than 200 races are held there, spread over 28 dates. Trotters take the ocher-colored interior track (pozzolana), while thoroughbreds gallop on the white exterior track (fiber sand). The meetings take place from mid-September to mid-April.

Track Details

The racecourse covers 16 hectares, of which 4 hectares are dedicated to trotting and galloping tracks. For trotting, the pozzolana track measures 1200 meters, while the Synthetic track Viscoride for gallop measures 1425 meters long and 13 to 18 meters wide, allowing up to 16 starters. All routes are rope to the right.

It has a covered grandstand with 2,000 seats, has 100 boxes, 40 stalls, and a space dedicated to drivers. Parking space can accommodate 1,800 vehicles.

The racecourse also has a shopping and leisure center, which is part of the new Carré de Soie district. The Carré de Soie shopping complex covers 500 hectares with 52 stores. It also has 14 restaurants and a 14-screen multiplex cinema. There is a Hippodrome brewery, The Great Hall bar, Paris Hall, Bar and Brasserie on the 1st floor, Owners’ lounge on the 2nd floor, a Miniature museum, and a UCPA leisure center located at the middle of the track.

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.
