Engel & Völkers Madrid team at the Zarzuela hipódromo

On 11th August, the marketing team of Engel & Völkers Madrid real estate attended the La Zarzuela Racecourse on its final racing night. The team enjoyed the sensational atmosphere, where horses shared the limelight with many food trucks that sold more than ten varieties of international foods. There were cocktails served in 8 bars that are scattered around town in north and south gardens. 

Twenty minutes before each race, the participants put their thoroughbreds on display in the paddock. The betting began at 22:15 with the first of four races. The longest race (with a travel distance of 2,300 metres), won the EUR 6,800 prize pool.

To qualify for a race, the horse must reach a speed of 60 km / hour. The weight of the jockey and the horse can not be less than 60 kg.

Engel & Völkers real estate agents would like to share their passion for horses and architecture with you. The racetracks at hipódromo are declared to be of cultural interest and the entire enclosure is recorded as National Heritage.

Designed by the architects Carlos Arniches, Martin Dominguez and engineer Eduardo Torroja,this hipódromo is considered to be one of the great buildings of the twentieth century. The stands are covered with sheets of reinforced concrete in the form of hyperboloids, which act as the main structural support. This feature was an architectural novelty at the start of the hipódromo's construction back in 1935.

Once the races come to an end, all the jockeys and their horses go on holiday. They will return on September 13th, with autumn races every Sunday at 11:30. Children can also enjoy the Mini Turf with its bouncy castles and the pony rides. 

The Engel & Völkers Madrid team will definitely not miss the opening party that promises to be full of surprises.
