Saratoga Race Course

Saratoga Race Course is a thoroughbred horse racing track located on Union Avenue in Saratoga Springs, New York. Named one of the world’s greatest horse racing venues by Sports Illustrated. Saratoga Race Course is famous for hosting some of the best horse racing in the world, and it’s the summer playground for titans of industry and celebrities.

The track itself consist of three tracks. Its main course (dirt) has a circumference of 1+1/8 miles (1.8 km). Within the main track, there are two courses: the 1 mile (1.6 km) Main Turf Course and the Inner Turf Course, measuring 7.065 furlongs (1.421 km). The track has a seating capacity of 17,000 and a total capacity of 40,000. The facility houses the New York Racing Association’s headquarters.

Saratoga held its first thoroughbred meet just a month after the Battle of Gettysburg. Several thousand people came to wager on and watch eight races a day for four days. Staged by gambler, casino owner, ex-boxing champion, and future Congressman John “Old Smoke” Morrissey and beginning on August 3, 1863, the four-day meet drew thousands of locals and tourists who saw Lizzie W. defeat Captain Moore in the best-of-three series of races.

Saratoga Race Course has been in use almost every year since 1864, with only a handful of exceptions. The course was closed in 1896 due to increasing competition among thoroughbred tracks, making the meet at Saratoga not possible for that season. Anti-gambling legislation, which had passed in New York, resulted in the cessation of all thoroughbred racing in that state during 1911 and 1912.

Every summer, the past comes alive in the historic grandstand as fans experience not only the best in racing but the unmatched ambience and charm of historic Saratoga Springs.
