Worcester Racecourse

Worcester Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Worcester, United Kingdom. It opened in 1718 at Grand Stand Road.

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

Horse racing at the Worcester Racecourse began in 1718 and staged Flat racing until 1966. Since then, the racecourse staged National Hunt racing only, and in 1995, summer jumping started.

In April 2000, Arena Leisure took over the running of the racecourse, but the City Council is still the owner of the land and management of the maintenance of the grass area in the center of the racetrack. During the 2007 floods, the racecourse was inundated, and all the fixtures after June 30 had to be canceled. As of July 2019, 55 horses had been killed at the course since 2007.

The venue is located in the city of Worcester, Worcestershire, England. Worcester residents are popularly known as ‘Pitchcroft’. Currently owned by Worcester City Council but leased to Arena Leisure Plc.

Track Details

The track is flat, left-handed with easy turns, an oval circuit of about 13 furlongs (approximately 2,615 meters) in length. It has four enclosures, the County Enclosure, Grandstand Bar, Centre Course Enclosure, Severn Restaurant. During non-race days, it is still open for conferences, events, parties, and much more.

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.
