Horse Racing in Santiago
Betting on horses is popular in Santiago, which is the reason you'll see so many Teletrak betting offices. The city has two large racetracks.
Races take place Friday and alternating Mondays at Club Hípico, south of downtown. El Ensayo, an annual race that's a century-old tradition, is held here in early November. Blanco Encalada 2540, Santiago Centro, Santiago. 2/693–9600. www.clubhipico.cl.
Hipódromo Chile is the home of the prestigious Gran Premio Internacional, which draws competitors from around South America. Regular races are held Saturday and three Thursdays a month. Hipódromo Chile 1715, Independencia, Santiago. 2/270–9237. www.hipodromo.cl.
