Running Aces Casino, Hotel & Racetrack

Running Aces Casino, Hotel & Racetrack is a horse-racing track in Columbus, Minnesota, United States. It opened in 2008, at Running Aces Boulevard.

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 is the newest harness track in the United States that has a five eight-mile, made up of dirt situated about thirty minutes north of Minneapolis. It is adjacent to I-35 exit #129 in Columbus, Minnesota, and just 20 minutes north of downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. It is currently owned by North Metro Harness Initiative, which opened on April 11, 2008. It features a short harness meet in the summer. However, the facility’s focal point is on simulcasting and casino, and there is no grandstand and seating is only a couple of benches on the apron.

During the pandemic, they created self-service betting machines within the racing area and additional wagering machines outside the hotel to minimize person-to-person contact.

Track Details

The track is also famous for its unique “Trout Air Experience”, in which the guests have the chance to fish for live trout in the on-site pond. The caught fish will be cleaned, cooked, and served to the customers who caught the fish in the Trout Air Tavern restaurant while watching the racing. It also offers a 24/7 card room, Winners Circle restaurant, and an All-In Grill. The card room at Running Aces offers no-commission Blackjack, Pai Gow Poker, EZ Baccarat, Mississippi Stud, and more. A separate poker room hosts daily tournaments for Texas Hold ’em and Pot-Limit Omaha. It also features a 116-room, full-service hotel connected to the casino, with an indoor pool, lobby bar, 24/7 dining area, fitness area, business space, and meeting facilities.

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.
