Wetherby Racecourse

Wetherby Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Wetherby, West Yorkshire, England. It opened in 1891 at York 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

It originally began on the southeast outskirts, in the small village of Linton. However, they were unable to buy land at Linton but eventually found a new site situated off York Road in 1891. Situated near the market town of Wetherby in West Yorkshire, England, and 12 miles (19 km) from Leeds city center.

The racecourse is operated by Wetherby Steeplechase Committee Ltd., and it is the starting point for the Great Yorkshire Bike Ride, from Wetherby to Filey. Wetherby Racecourse railway station served the racecourse from the 1920s to the 1950s.

Aside from horse racing, it holds a market and car boot sale every Sunday in the Course Enclosure. Then since 2006, the racecourse has been the venue for the Mascot Gold Cup, the world’s largest Mascot race held over the final furlong on their family day meeting each April.

It is the last racecourse in Yorkshire that hosted only National Hunt jump meetings but now stages Flat racing too. The course announced early in 2014 that they were investigating staging summer Flat racing and were granted four fixtures when the 2015 list was released in October 2014. The first Flat racing fixture took place on April 26, 2015.

Track Details

The racecourse is set in 300 acres of parkland. Flat racing is held in a left-handed, flat, and approximately a mile and a half in circumference track. There is no straight sprint track, and because of the position of the bends, sprints are run over 5½ furlongs, starting on a chute near the end of the back straight. Races for National Hunt is held in a left-handed and galloping track with nine fences.

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.
