Warwick Racecourse

Warwick Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Warwick, Warwickshire, United Kingdom. It opened in 1707 at Hampton Street.

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 history of horse racing in Warwick started in September 1694, when the Great Fire of Warwick burned down the town resulting in a desperate need for rebuilding. The people had an idea to raise money through horse racing, and hence horse racing started in the town. Then in 1707, Warwick had established a racecourse.

In 1808, the first stand was built, while in 1845, steeplechasing was introduced. In 1967 Jockey Club purchased the racecourse, and they remain in control of the racecourse today.

It originally staged both Flat racing and National Hunt racing but was forced to abandon Flat racing after an incident in May 2014, and Warwick’s final Flat fixture took place on August 26, 2014.

It is located at Hampton Street, Warwick Warwickshire, England, among the UK’s oldest racecourses, which is also established as one of the best jumps racing courses in the UK. It hosts 25 meetings throughout the year (from September to May). Moreover, it is best known for its Agetur Kingmaker Novices Chase and Classic Chase.

Track Details

In the racecourse are a nine-hole golf course and a golf driving range. The track measures 1.6 miles in circumference, left-handed, oval, and broad but sharp. There are ten fences per circuit for steeplechases, with five of them coming in quick succession along the back straight, making for a tough finish. On the hurdles course, runners take on six flights each lap with two positioned down the home stretch, as with steeplechases making for a testing finish. Both courses feature a short run-in.

The racecourse is also open to other events. Musical performances and festivals are sporadically scheduled for the venue, which can also be privately hired for weddings, parties, and corporate events. It is also a popular venue for exercise, with dog walkers frequently using the facilities on non-race days. The racecourse is also home to a gold course and driving range, managed by the Warwick Golf Centre.

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.
