Hipódromo ArgentinoA symbol of Buenos Aires’s golden age, the Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo was the locus for the horseraces that played a major role in 1930s and ’40s porteño culture. Crowds flocked to the track on weekends; great wins (and many more losses) inspired dozens of tango songs. Today, the grand 1876 Belle Époque structure still hosts a handful of weekly races. For an up-close look at the horses, check out the showcase before each competition; place your bets and pay the small fee to watch the steeplechase from more comfortable tribuna oficial seats, offering great views of your horse as it crosses the finish line.
