Hipodromo de San Isidro

One of the finest racetracks in the world. This is in the outskirts of Buenos Aires. It has a main turf track and an inner dirt track with two far turns. The "smaller" dirt track measures 2240m around and the big one 2600m. The main turf track measures a whooping 2780m around. It has a straight course of 1000m, a 1400m chute and a 2400m chute on the backstretch. If you look to the west there is a training track almost as big as the racetrack itself.

And hopefully tomorrow I´ll be visiting THIS racetrack in person!! :D :D :D Wish me luck. The main race is the General Pueyrredon Stakes (G. II) over 3000 metres on the main turf track!!
