Wolverhampton Racecourse

Wolverhampton Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England. It opened in 1887, at Dunstall Park.

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

In 1887 a new course was formed at Dunstall Park, a privately-owned track purchased by Arena Leisure in 1999. In December 1993, the course was redeveloped with floodlights and a new all-weather Fibresand track that ran alongside the turf track. At the same time, a hotel, new grandstand, restaurant, and executive boxes were also established.

In 2004, the Fibresand and turf tracks were replaced with a single Polytrack surface, then commenced to host flat all-weather races only. In 2014, the Polytrack surface was replaced with a brand new Tapeta track, making it the first British course to adopt the new artificial surface, which was already popular with many venues in North America.

It is located on the outskirts of Wolverhampton City Centre at Dunstall Park, in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England. It is now owned by Arena Racing Company and Britain’s first floodlit racetrack and one of Britain’s busiest racecourses. It hosts 80 fixtures all year-round.

The home is a 130-acre site with a Tapeta Track that measures 1m in length and is floodlit. A very tight, flat, oval circuit with left-hand turns. The bends are fairly sharp, with a narrow straight of under two furlongs.

There are bars, restaurants, and a busy conference and exhibition center available in the racecourse. There is also a Holiday Inn Hotel with 54 well-appointed bedrooms, an open lobby bar, and a Starbucks coffee restaurant. Aside from horse racing, it also hosts music events, conferences, and other attractions.

It offers three enclosures that give racecourse admissions and access to all public ground floor areas, including the parade ring viewing area and Trackside. First is the Grandstand Enclosure, which also gives access to various food outlets, including Weight Inn Bar / Lounge and Paddock Grill. Second is the Premier Enclosure, which gives exclusive access to bar and lounge facilities. The third one is the Ringside Restaurant and Horizons Restaurant, which offers a three-course choice meal, table service for food, drinks, betting facilities, reserved table for the duration of the fixture, and after racing entertainment (Saturday night only).

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.
