  • Great place not just to admire the view of the River, and the horses and the green nature. Good to give an afternoon walk, or walk with the family. And the best for free

  • 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.
