Racecourse of La Capelle

Racecourse of La Capelle is a horse-racing track in La Capelle, France. It opened in 1874, at Chem. du Champ de Course.

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

A trotting racecourse, also called the Thiérache racecourse located in La Capelle in the Aisne, first held its official meeting on August 1, 1874, as its “test” racecourse. It is the only racecourse in Europe to have the appellations of Pôle d’Excellence Rurale and Pôle Européen of the Trot. Frequented by more than 60,000 people each year and ranked 5th racecourse in France, the International Racecourse of La Capelle nurtures the ambition to become a true “city of the horse”.

On August 10, 1924, the inauguration of the new stands took place during the fiftieth anniversary of the racecourse. In 1933 a new track was even created for trotters. In 1990, a one-mile speed ring unique in Europe was created, and the first PMU meetings took place in 1996. On September 14, 2008, after two years of work, the enclosure was given a new look with new installations designed to delight professionals and the public. In 2017, the racecourse opened the 1st pony trotting school with the hope of making it “a future breeding ground for champions”, becoming one of the first of its kind.

Track Details

The racecourse has a 1,000-meter ash-trotting track and one in pozzolana, a 1,609-meter speed ring comprising two curves inclined at 10%. The rope is on the left. Departures behind the autostart are possible while the finish line measures 400 meters. It offers a Panoramic restaurant, Champagne buffet, Kindergarten, Ponies, Miniature golf, and Sale of regional products. The racecourse has 60,000 seats with covered and heated stands and outdoor bleachers to accommodate 600 people. The car park can hold 1,000 vehicles.

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.
