Turismo Madrid. The Zarzuela Hippodrome inaugurates its autumn season

After the break in August, on 17th September the races returned to the 'Zarzuela Hippodrome', thus inaugurating the autumn season. Every Sunday until the month of December you will be able to experience the excitement of the 'turf days' while enjoying a varied range of leisure activities and gastronomy. In addition, you'll witness exceptional performances at up to nine Grand Prix events. If you haven't gone yet, what are you waiting for to experience it firs-hand?

Due to its excellent location and that in its enclosure houses 110 hectares of great ecological value, the Zarzuela Hippodrome is considered with the Retiro Park as one of the green lungs of the capital. It is also part of the National Historical Heritage, and its grandstands are considered one of the masterpieces of 20th century Madrid's architecture.  

With this presentation, it is not difficult to understand that every event held there is a resounding success, especially when in recent years we are surprised with a proposal of leisure for all audiences, which has made attending there on Sundays has become a real tradition.

The autumn season 2017 was lunched on 17 September, which will last until Sunday 3rd December, with a total of eighty-two races, nine of which will be Grand Prix races. These days will take place every Sunday from 11.30am to 2.30pm or 3pm, depending on whether there are six or seven races held, and especially on the occasion of the celebration of Día de la Hispanidad (Columbus Day), during the morning of Thursday 12th October. 

For only 5€ for admission, free of charge for those under 18 years old, except on 22nd October, 'Día de los Campeones' which the price will be 10€, you can feel the real excitement of the races while attending competitions as important as the GP Memorial Duque de Toledo, the GP Ricardo Ruíz Benítez de Lugo, GP 76 Aniversario de La Zarzuela or the GP Antonio Blasco among others.

Add some more excitement by making your bet, and of course have fun with your family as there will be an area with free children's activities, live music and a wide gastronomic offer from the hand of the famous 'food trucks' with seasonal rice dishes and barbecue. Completing this culinary plan, don't miss the renovated cafeteria Huella Restaurant Lounge & Events located in the Jardín Norte, where you can taste an extensive menu and rations for all tastes and pockets.

Of course there will also be space for fashion thanks to its well-known flea market 'La Huella Market', which will be located in the Jardín Sur. A great plan for the mornings of Sundays that we encourage you to know if you haven't already done so.

See you at the horse races!
