Sha Tin Racecourse

Sha Tin Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Sha Tin District, Hong Kong. It opened in 1978, at Sha Tin, in the New Territories.

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

On October 7, 1978, Hong Kong Jockey Club built the modern Sha Tin Racecourse, larger than the Happy Valley Racecourse. It is specifically constructed to run world-class horse races, located in Sha Tin in the New Territories, Hong Kong, and can be reached via Kowloon Canton Railway, stopping at Racecourse Station. Tourists staying in Hong Kong can also buy a member’s badge that gives access to the Members Stand.

Famous for having the world’s largest Diamond Vision screen, measuring 70.4 meters wide by 8 meters high, equivalent to 4,500 52-cm television sets, and the world’s first retractable roof over the parade ring. It also has the Fun Zone that consists of Racing Stars, the Beauty Place (another area that allows guests to dress a tail or mane), and a customer service desk for beginners (about betting on horse races, teaching them the basics and essentials).

Track Details

The track has two racing surfaces, the An All Weather (dirt track) sitting in the center and a Turf Course. The circumference of the dirt track is 1560 meters with a 380 meters long home straight, while the Turf Course is 1900 meters in circumference with 430 meters long home straight. There are also two chutes at the course, one for 1000m starts and the other for 1600m and 1800m starts.

The two grandstands, Betting Hall and Media Hall, can accommodate over 85,000 guests. They also offer fine dining options: the Pak Sing Restaurant, MezzaOne, a sushi bar, and Bon Appetite. Other amenities in the track are Equine Hospital, Racing Laboratory, Equine Swimming Pool, and the Riverside Gallop. The barn has 20 stables housing 1,260 horses. The admission fee is HK$10, which can be paid at the racecourse entrance, which gives you access to the Public Stands.

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.
