  1. Saratoga Springs

Opened in 1863 in Saratoga Springs, United States, this racecourse has seen many top horses in history win and register losses as well, hence the nickname “graveyard of champions.” Saratoga is one of the few old sporting venues still standing and in good shape in the United States.

Saratoga is famous for its mineral spring, and this iconic bell that is rung by hand every 17 minutes before the races begin, as a way of signaling the jockeys to move to the paddock. The racecourse holds three famous races, namely Whitney Handicap, Alabama stakes, and the Travers Stakes.
