  • A very beautiful place and Nice, I go back every time I'm in Rio, the food truck festival is also quite nice but pretty busy.

  • I've never been in a jockey, enjoyed it, pedestrian entry free, has also free grandstand restaurant, and you can bet if you're lucky, peaceful place.

  • At the Brazilian Jockey Club the visitor is extremely free to circulate by their dependencies. Can even get pretty close to the runway and the starting area. Has good restaurants inside.

  • For those who likes to bet on horses racing it's great but if you don't you can just admire the beautiful place. In addition to betting area, inside the Jockey you can also find bars, restaurants, club, gym, yoga school, theatre, bank branch, temporary exposition and fairs salon, and parking.
