Thanks to the Costa del Sol whether, in the winter, when races can’t be held in the rest of Europe, the best horses from the top stables head to the Hipodromo Costa del Sol which is in a quiet location in contact with nature.
There is a 15,000m2 with direct view to the tracks and a seating capacity for 2,500 people. The racecourse has 414 fully-equipped boxes, with 12 in the paddock and 80 at the riding school.
The 800m2 paddock is where the horses are shown before and after the races. There are two sand tracks, one is external and 1,700 metres long where the races are held and the other is internal and 1,600 metres long.
There are thirty betting machines in three different areas around the enclosure.
