Salisbury Racecourse

Salisbury Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Salisbury, Wiltshire, United Kingdom. It opened in 1584, at Netherhampton.

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

Since 1584, racing was present on the site, the oldest currently-running race in the country, located 3 miles (5 km ) Southwest, Netherhampton Salisbury, Wiltshire SP2 8PN, England. About a two-hour drive from London and only five minutes from Salisbury city center.

The ‘City Bowl’, held at the track and sponsored by BetFred, started in 1654. The track is also one of England’s most historic racecourses and remains a top racing venue in the flat racing scene. It is also widely acknowledged as an ideal track for leading stables to introduce their better prospects. It hosts several evening races with musical entertainment of bands and tribute acts, and light shows after horse races. Hosts 15 race meetings a year held between early May and mid-October.

Track Details

The straight is over seven furlongs long, with the loop course can host races of over one mile and two furlongs. The course type is flat, featuring thoroughbred horse racing. It is right-handed, a downland flat-racing course with no jumps, fairly linear, but with a three-furlong loop towards the far end. The straight course is uphill throughout the last half-mile, and races over 14f are started without stalls.

The loop course, despite the run-in of seven furlongs (with a right-handed elbow after three furlongs), those ridden handily can gain an advantage as the gallop is often on the steady side around the sharp loop section.

Facilities include bars and catering outlets, and a big screen opposite the Stands. It offers parking areas and toilets for disabled visitors, ramp/level access, an on-site café/restaurant, an event venue, and on-site parking for everyone free of charge.

It offers three enclosures, the Bibury Enclosure (£24), Grandstand Enclosure (£20), and Sarum Enclosure (£10). Exclusive use of the Bibury Enclosure & facilities is only available on Friday 20th August – Ladies’ Evening. On the other hand, Grandstand Enclosure is available for all meetings, while the last one, the Sarum Enclosure, accepts picnics but prohibits alcoholic drinks.

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.
