Seoul Race Park

Seoul Race Park is a horse-racing track in Gwacheon, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea. It opened in 1989, at Gyeongmagongwon-daero.

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

The track was relocated three times, and the original location was at Sinseol-dong, Dongdaemun-gu, which was in operation from the early 1920s until just after the Korean War. Then it was relocated in Ttukseom, on the north bank of the Han River. In February 1983, after South Korea was awarded the 1988 Summer Olympics, the KRA was given the task of organizing the equestrian events, and the Ttukseom site was not enough, and the KRA obtained a new site south of Seoul in Gwacheon Gyeonggi-do. Hence, the second relocation happened, where the track is currently operating.

Seoul Race Park is also known as LetsRun Park Seoul or Seoul Racecourse Park. It is a 40,000 capacity Korean thoroughbred racetrack situated at Gwacheon, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea, next to Seoul Racecourse Park Station on Line 4 of the Seoul Metropolitan Subway. It is operated by the Korea Racing Authority (KRA).

The information desk on the first floor has an English language form sheet available, detailed enough with a general idea of the best horse in the race. The track also has a more detailed guide and “expert” predictions available inside and outside. These two types of guides are with names such as “Ace”, “Speed” and “New World” which have the day’s card with predictions for each race costing 1000 won, and the other ones are more detailed with full of background information for serious punters. “Seoul Gyongma” and “Gyongma Munhwa” are the most popular, costing 4000 won. Every magazine has a kiosk inside the subway station, all available at the “Magazine Shop” by the main entrance. Buying these magazines has a freebie “sign pen”.

Track Details

The two sand tracks have the same inner and outer track circumference, 1,600m, and 1,900m, respectively. Both are 23m in width and widen to 30m in the home straight to accommodate a 450m run to the winning post. The track also has two grandstands: the Happy Ville, which can accommodate 35,000 people, and Lucky Ville, which can accommodate 42,000 people. Both are equipped with two stable areas: the Juam Stable area that can house 700 horses and Sampo Stable area for 600 horses. The Family Park inside the racetrack has rose gardens, children’s pony riding, racing simulation machines, and either wading pools in summer or skating rinks in winter.

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.
