Yonkers Raceway

Yonkers Raceway is a horse-racing track in Yonkers, New York, United States. It opened in 1899, at Yonkers Ave.

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

Yonkers Raceway was opened in 1899 by William H. Clark’s Empire City Trotting Club. But after he died in 1900, the track remained close for most of the duration of seven years. Originally built for Harness Racing, the thoroughbred racing was brought into the track by the second owner, James Butler, in 1907. In 1936, the unparalleled Seabiscuit, one notable thoroughbred racehorse, won the Scarsdale Handicap Stakes Race. Currently, the Yonkers Raceway features year-round harness racing on the five nights per week schedule. The Rooney Family acquired Yonkers Raceway in 1972, and MGM Resorts International purchased it from the Rooney family in 2019.

This track is located in Yonkers, New York, owned by MGM Growth Properties and operated by MGM Resorts International. Some notable recorded races of this track are George Morton Levy, Memorial Pacing Series, Blue Chip Matchmaker, Art Rooney Pace, Lawrence B. Sheppard Pace, Lismore Pace, Yonkers Trot, Hudson Filly Trot, Messenger Stakes, Lady Maud Pace, and New York Night of Champions.

Track Details

The track is a one-half mile oval, and it is an Open stretch with no hub rail. The surface is Limestone screenings. The length of the homestretch is 660 feet and 98 feet in width. It can accommodate up to 7,500 seats.

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.
