  • We went to the racetrack but the ultimate goal was the Casino. We would like to meet. The place is nice. Worth the visit.

  • I like to play and travel abroad to visit casinos. Didn't know the HORSE RACES in Buenos Aires, a friend recommended you and here I nominate. The building is superb! In the middle of the Park, amazing views, immense, diverse game parlours (there's a whole floor to play in dollars, in addition to weights). The only ' or else ' is that there is no roulette or card tables, the games are all electronics. Another tip: there is a nice restaurant inside the casino, with honest and cheap food. I paid 100 pesos (less than 40 reais, in the quote of the day we visited) by an excellent steak Gaucho.

  • Thought and experience from very cool, you can place bets from AR 3.00. When betting, even though low values the races are more interesting. The races have distinct distances and occur every 30 minutes, from 2:00 pm. The site has a few restaurants and the Casino, which also provides a really nice experience.

  • For me, a racetrack should be like Palermo -- a good track needs to have some kind of tradition behind it .. in the buildings, in the trees and grass, in the amenities for guests, If it is just a big cash register with old hags and bums lining the fence hoping their 50 cent bet will pay off a thousand bucks, it's a bummer. Only good track is a pretty track. I have spoken! :) Cheers.
