Southwell Racecourse

Southwell Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Nottinghamshire, England, United Kingdom. It opened in 1898, at Southwell.

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 May 16, 1898, the racecourse was established and had its first race meeting, located 2 miles (3 km) east of Southwell in Nottinghamshire, England, and owned by Arena Racing Company. In December 2012, the racecourse was forced to close temporarily due to the damage caused by the flood in both track and buildings. It resumed operation on February 5, 2013.

It is one of only six racecourses in the UK to have an all-weather track and is the only one with a Fibresand surface. It is the first racecourse in the UK to be floodlit with LED technology and the second-longest All-Weather straight in the country after Newcastle’s one mile straight

Track Details

The racecourse is set in 145 acres, racing Flat and National Hunt. The track is Fibresand, oval, measuring 1m 2f in length, 5f straight, and a left-handed course. The All-weather track (Flat) is oval with tight bends (a mile-and-a-quarter for the round course and bends having a slight camber built into them). It has a 3f long straight run-in, includes a chute that joins the home straight to produce a 5f sprint track, and runs around the outside of the National Hunt turf course.

For the Turf Track (National Hunt). It is tight as well, measuring around 1m in circumference. There are seven portable fences for steeplechase and five flights for hurdles.

The track has 110 stables, has restaurants (The Food Pantry, The Fish & Chip Shop, and Castle Bar & Carvery), and bars (Sherwood Bar, The Coffee Shop, and the Minster Bar). It offers two enclosures as well, the grandstand enclosure and premier enclosure. Grandstand Enclosure costs £12 per ticket, often referred to as the Tattersalls Enclosure at other racecourses. This enclosure gives you access to the Grandstand and most of the ground floors. On the other hand, Premier Enclosure costs £16, which gives access to all public areas.

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.
