  • The Saratoga Race Course Guide

    The Saratoga racecourse has been around a while! First opened in 1863 this course is considered the oldest thoroughbred race track in the US.

    The racecourse is located in Saratoga Springs, New York. Being located in uptown New York, the course is one of the most popular in the country. Also, one of very few to feature dual turf course along with a dirt course. Working from in to out, the first turf track is a seven-furlong oval. The next turf track is just over a mile oval, this is known as the 'Mellon Course' and then the dirt course is one mile and one-furlong oval. The dirt track features a 1144ft run in and also a starting chute. Saratoga, as well as flat racing, also hosts steeplechase racing on the turf.
