From tomorrow, Thursday, July 1, they return to the Madrid Hippodrome, one more year
‘The Nights of the Hippodrome’ a unique experience with night horse races, our unparalleled gastronomy, ambient music and concerts, from 9:00 p.m. This year, the novelty is that there will be a double turf session, on Thursdays and Saturdays in July and in August, two unique Thursdays on the 5th and 26th.
The doors of the venue will open at 8.30 pm, enlivening the start of the evening with live music by Dos Maderas, which brings us a fresh flamenco with a summer flavor.
DINING IN DIFFERENT SETTINGS
One of the attractions of the racetrack nights is the good and diverse cuisine that is offered in the different terraces and gardens of its facilities.
The concept of La Ancha summers at the Hippodrome, which will be present for 15 nights, has already become a benchmark among lovers of good food thanks to the good hand of chef Nino Redruello and its location at the foot of the track. La Ancha, delights us with a tasting menu of its best dishes.
Panthera, located in another of the privileged places of the Hippodrome such as the Torroja Tribune with unbeatable views of the Madrid skyline, offers us a mix of Latin-Japanese fusion food and its own live DJ.
For a more informal but equally tasty dinner, we offer you a wide variety of gastronomic points in our gardens such as: the BBQ Turf Station, a space where you can enjoy the best grilled meats, and the most barbecue dishes. Classics that you can have in our extensive gardens or our food trucks that will not leave you indifferent with the Moose hamburgers, the El Brillante sandwiches or the fusion of Andalusian cuisine with dishes from other parts of the globe in the Tradizioná foodtruck.
LA JORNADA – FIBER AND SAND TRACK
The night will begin with the first race at 9:35 p.m., with the Bouquet Award, split handicap second part, for horses and mares three years and older, over a distance of 1,900 meters. Six participants. Thirteen is a great fiber specialist and has proven to have the courage to be a favorite, the unknown is going to be how long he has not run. As main rivals I see Ace de Oros and Drover, who also love the sand and will not make it easy for them.
The second race will be the Álvaro Díez Award, split handicap first part, for horses and mares three years and older, also over the distance of 1,900 meters. Six candidates for victory. Speedful, the only three-year-old in his career, is coming from winning, he is very fit and has shown that he rises in value in the fiber, you have to beat him. Kosciuszko, Deference and Pelliquero will be his main rivals
In third place the Anita Slikker Prize will be held, reserved for Amazonas and Gentlemen, handicap for horses and mares four years and older. Nine hopefuls for victory from the 1,700 meter post. Veleta comes from winning, he is very fit and does very well in the sand, he has everything to do again. Mr Hobbs and Zeebullet will be very difficult enemies.
The fourth race will be the Suances Award, Lototurf support, for non-winning 3-year-old foals and fillies. Ten participants, 1,900 meters of route. The ones I like the most are Hajoos and Filomena Storm, they both have a lot of improvement and I see them fighting for victory. Monterredondo is the most experienced and the release places him, forced to be close.
The night will close on Premio Dink, reserved for Non-winning Professional Riders and Apprentices of twelve races from September 1, 2020, for horses and mares 4 years and older. Eight copies in the starting boxes, a sprint of 1,200 meters. So Hi Storm stands out, he is a great specialist, he comes from winning on his return to the fiber in which he has already done it five times out of six starts, arriving in the other third. It is clearly the horse to beat. Battle of Waterloo is very fast, although he prefers the straight line, he has shown the courage to be very close, on arrival. Viceroy has changed yards, he is running in a gray way, although he has had performances to clearly appear here. Good opportunity to make amends.
