You“re off! Allow a half day for this - no rush in Spain and even less when you are at the races.
A great day at the impressive Hippodrome of Zarzuela - itself inspired by the San Miro Stadium in Milan, the atmosphere there is always buzzing. Those that think they know a thing or two can study the form and chew their pencils whilst the others can pick on the funniest name or the best coloured silks.
Madrid's Zarzuela race track is one of the best places in Spain to see top-notch horse race meets.This is Spain's Cheltenham, mecca to the Spanish racing and punting community.
Your racing guide will collect you at your hotel and then onward in private coach to the VIP entrance for the all important briefing on Spanish betting procedures and etiquette so that you know your " Ganador" ( Win Only) and your "Colocado" ( each way) your " Gemela" ( named each way) and for the real risk takers - trio and cuarteto "no reversible" ( for those you will need a personal briefing!)
Prices vary according to race meet and includes return coach transfers, local guide, VIP entrance with drinks ( wine, sangria, soft drinks, beer) and canąpes in the Members only Owners Club
“I wanted to thank you for organising a really smashing day out for us - far far better than anybody expected and it was the first time most of us had been to the races in the sun! Brilliant all round.”
