The Big Fresno Fair

The Big Fresno Fair is a horse-racing track in Fresno, California, United States. It opened in 1884 at Chance Ave.

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 1884, the track was established by a group of local businessmen and professionals who served on the Farm Bureau and Chamber of Commerce, owned by Fresno County and leased to the Fair under a 50-year land lease that allows it to continue to operate. Then in 1941, pari-mutuel wagering came to Fresno. It is one of the first in the country to offer race calls in both English and Spanish and the fifth-largest Fair in the State of California. It also represents the 21st District Agricultural Association, an entity of the California Department of Food and Agriculture Division of Fairs & Expositions.

Moreover, Fresno Fairgrounds also hosts more than 250 annual events such as conventions, trade shows, and banquets in Fresno, California. It also exhibits livestock shows, live horse racing, musical entertainment, educational programs, and more.

This track’s unique mission is to “Educate, Celebrate and Have Fun”. The reason why it provides a link between urban and rural California, serving as a tool to educate visitors on the region’s rich agricultural industry.

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.
