The Hippodromo Palermo is the premier horse race track in Argentina. Recently we had a chance to stop by.
Our good fortune meant we chose a day where some ladies were having a stylish day at the track, accompanied by young ladies with Down Syndrome. Together they looked great!
Even the jockeys were impressed.
In addition to the fashion show, there was a food festival – an Oreo Milkshake in Buenos Aires!
The grounds and grandstands are very nice.
Palermo is the largest neighborhood in the city – with numerous parks and other public spaces.
Hey – I missed my train. It is good to see the train from the track, as opposed to my daily view the other way.
And yes – there was a full card of racing.
Interestingly for this race the winner was wearing Boca Juniors colors. A good weekend for Boca Junior – a championship in soccer, and a winner at the track.
