Royal Windsor Racecourse

Royal Windsor Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Windsor, Berkshire, United Kingdom. It opened in 1866, at Maidenhead Rd.

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

Windsor Racecourse, also known as Royal Windsor Racecourse, had its first race meeting in 1866, located in Windsor, Berkshire, England. It is on the banks of the River Thames and occupies a large island between the River’s main channel and the Clewer Mill Stream backwater. It is a racecourse that was permitted to operate race meetings during both wars among the few. National hunt jump racing was abandoned and switched entirely to Flat racing in December 1998.

Currently owned by Arena Leisure PLC and one of the only two figure-of-eight courses in the United Kingdom, the other being at Fontwell Park. It is also widely acknowledged as one of the country’s premier tracks. The track was also the location for scenes in Last Orders and Midsomer Murders Season 8-episode Bantling Boy. It also supported the 2012 Summer Olympics by creating a temporary bridge linking the racecourse with Dorney Lake, the rowing and canoeing venue. The racecourse served as a pick-up and drop-off point for spectators traveling to and from Dorney Lake. It hosts 27 flat races a year from April to October with five notable races: Royal Windsor Stakes, Leisure Stakes, Midsummer Stakes, August Stakes, and Winter Hill Stakes.

Track Details

The home is 165 acres with course type as Flat and neither primarily left-handed nor right, but both. The home straight is about five furlongs long, with a slight kink in the track three furlongs out. The bends are tight, and due to the track’s layout, the longest race it can accommodate is 1 mile 3 furlongs.

It offers three enclosures, first is the Club Enclosure. It gives access to the Club, Grandstand and Silver Ring Enclosures, Centre of the Course, and Paddock Lawn. A host of bars and three restaurants are all available within the enclosure. The second one is the Grandstand Enclosure located within 75 yards of the winning post that gives access to the Silver Ring Enclosure, Centre of the Course, and Paddock Lawn. It also has a host of bars and the popular Castle Restaurant. Lastly, the Silver Ring Enclosure is only open from May to August and closed from April to October. It is located approximately 150 yards from the winning post, the only area on the course where you can bring your own picnic; however, it prohibits any alcohol brought in from outside the racecourse. Only alcohol purchased on site can be consumed, and any alcohol found otherwise will be confiscated and not returned.

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.
