Sandown Park Racecourse

Sandown Park Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Esher, Surrey, United Kingdom. It opened in 1875, at Portsmouth 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

It opened in 1875 when everyone had to pay at least half a crown. The first meeting occurred in three days, April 22-25, 1875, including the Grand National Hunt Chase, which is now staged at the Cheltenham Festival. The War Department requisitioned it from 1940-1945 for World War II.

It is located in Esher, Surrey, England, in the outer suburbs of London. It is close to Esher railway station, served by trains from London Waterloo. One of fifteen racecourses in the UK, owned and operated by the Jockey Club. It is also one of the first courses to charge all for attending and became the first course in England to have a members’ enclosure in 1875. Acknowledged as the most modernized racecourse among the backdrop a historical sport, and one of the most accessible and popular in the UK. Moreover, it is also known to be the Queen Mother’s favorite course in which three of her horses, “Arkle, Mill Reef, and Desert Orchid,” frequently raced in the course.

Aside from racing, it also hosts many non-racing events such as trade shows, wedding fairs, toy fairs, car shows, auctions, property shows, concerts, private events, and concerts for famous bands and musicians, including Girls Aloud, Madness, and Westlife.

It hosts five grade one National Hunt meetings and a Group 1 flat meeting every year. Home of the Tingle Creek & the Coral-Eclipse (featured race), hosting 14 fixtures in both flat and jumps.

Track Details

It hosts both Flat and National Hunt with a right-handed course. For flat, the racecourse is oval and measures 1m5f in circumference. Run-in is 4f long and features a gradual incline before leveling off close to the winning post. In the winter, the flat main course is utilized for hurdles racing, with six hurdles moved onto the circuit. On the other hand, the Steeplechase Course (National Hunt) is slightly longer, measuring 1m5½f. It includes a largely uphill home straight, and although the run-in isn’t overly long, it can be very demanding, especially on softer ground. The Obstacle or Jump Course (National Hunt) has 11 fences, including two open ditches and one water jump. Seven obstacles are laid out down the back straight. The distances between them vary, with the final three jumps coming in quick succession.

It offers 110 stables, a wedding reception suite, a karting track, an 18-hole golf course, and a dry ski slope. For its dining, it offers three packages, bronze, silver, and gold. There are also three restaurant packages available for the Equus restaurant, situated overlooking the finishing line.

It also offers enclosures, such as the 1875 Lounge, which includes casual seating, a private bar, and betting facilities, and available food to purchase. The Premier Enclosure offers full access to the Grandstand and exclusive bookmakers, catering facilities, and bars (including the popular Moët & Chandon Champagne Bar). It also has access to the brasserie and the enclosures walk-in restaurant. Another location in the racecourse is the Champagne Terrace, overlooking the Parade Ring, with comfortable seats and a private bar with views of the London skyline on the horizon. Its inclusions are the Premier Enclosure entry, a glass of champagne on arrival, exclusive access to the Terrace and bar, exclusive seating area, and a racecard.

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.
