Thirsk Racecourse

Thirsk Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom. It opened in 1855, at Station 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

Thirsk’s first official racecourse was established in 1855, starting where races were only contests between friends and matches over fences and hurdles and some nonthoroughbred races. Formality arrived in 1875, while in 1896, the site was visited by the Prince of Wales, later King Edward. Due to the war, the racecourse was closed in 1914 and reopened in 1924.

It is located in the immediate west of the market town of Thirsk, between the town center and the village of Carlton Miniott, in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, England. A thoroughbred horse racing that Thirsk Racecourse Ltd owns, and renowned for its beautifully maintained paddock.

In 2020, it staged 15 days of flat racing between April and September. It features the Thirsk Hunt Cup and The Yorkshire Outdoors Adventure Experiences Handicap.

Track Details

The track is left-handed, fairly sharp, and oval (about 1 mile and 2 furlongs). It has four furlongs finishing straight and a 6 furlongs chute. The Straight six-furlong course is slightly undulating throughout. While the round course itself is almost perfectly flat, the turns are relatively easy, and the ground is well leveled all around.

It also offers four main conference rooms that can accommodate 20 to 240 people, plus numerous breakout rooms, if required. Free parking and Wi-Fi access are available, and audiovisual equipment, such as a projector and public address system, can be hired at an additional cost

It also offers three enclosures, the Premier Enclosure, the Paddock Enclosure, and the Family Ring. Prices range from £6 in the Family Ring for standard fixtures to £21 in the Premier Enclosure for premier fixtures.

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.
