Tomorrow Thursday July 22, we will enjoy the seventh day of ‘Las Noches del Hipódromo’ 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. 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 that 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 just as 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 enjoy in our spacious gardens or our food trucks that will not leave you indifferent with the Moose burgers, the El Brillante sandwiches or the fusion of Andalusian cuisine with dishes from other parts of the globe in the Tradizioná foodtruck.
The day – Fiber and sand court
The night will begin at 9:35 p.m., with the Julián de Olivares y Bruguera Award, reserved for Amazonas and Gentlemen, for horses and mares four years and older. Four contenders for victory from the 1,800 meter pole. Here Merisi clearly stands out, he is undefeated in his three starts in the Madrid arena, also beating the great Legionnaire in December. It is the horse to beat, Einar and City Master, they will try to make it difficult for him.
The second race will be the Okawango Award – National Breeding, for horses and mares three years and older, born and raised in Spain. Four copies in the starting boxes, 1,900 meters of travel. After two gray races, Baba Karam became Baba Karam again, he loves the track, he has everything to do again. Gormaz had a more than acceptable comeback, with that career, I see him as the main rival. To complete the trio, Big Mack.
In third place the Gitanillo Award – Diario Marca, for three-year-old colts and fillies that have not won. Seven participants, 1,200 meters of route. Here I see a hand-to-hand duel between Infant Hercules and Mauna Loa, a priori, the race should basically go through both of them. The lot is very weak and they are the ones that have shown the most, but it would not be surprising if there were any surprises.
The fourth race will be the Premio Nembutal, Lototurf support, double handicap second part, for horses and mares of three years and older, over a distance of 1,700 meters. Twelve candidates for victory. My favorite is going to be Karluvy, he was the favorite in his last outing, in which he was very annoyed and was left with practically no option, finally finishing fourth. Here is a good chance to make it up. Veleta with two victories in a row and with the professional debut of one of the sensations of the season, Vicky Alonso, they will not make it easy for him. Zeebullet, loves the track, is very fit and does not fall from a finish, he will be the third in contention.
The night will close on Juan Vicente Chavarrías Award, split handicap first part, for horses and mares of three years and older, also over the distance of 1,700 meters. Six participants. It is the most even race of the night, any of the six has a chance of victory. Peaky Blinders and Luanco are the ones I like the most, the track is doing very well and they have shown the courage to fight it. Mr hobbs, you had a bad day in your last performance, but despite the tough scale, it will be very dangerous again.
