Hipódromo de La Zarzuela

HIPODROMO DE LA ZARZUELAHorse racing and leisure

Its main activity revolves around horse racing, which supplements with a wide offer of high-quality leisure.

The company was incorporated in 2003 by Sociedad Estatal de Participaciones Industriales (SEPI) and Loterías y Apuestas del Estado (LAE), with three main goals: 

  • To restore the Hipódromo de La Zarzuela and recover horse racing in Spain.
  • To provide Madrid with a high-quality leisure facility.
  • To promote an economic activity which generates a large number of jobs and which carries out a significant social work.

The restoration of the horse racetracks fulfills the non-legislative proposal dated on July 20th, 1999 at the Lower House of the Spanish Parliament. 

Hipódromo de La Zarzuela is part of the Spanish National Heritage, and its grandstands are regarded as one of the masterpieces of Madrid’s architecture from the 20th century. The premises cover a 110-hectare surface with a high ecological value, and features first level facilities, with a privileged location within the city of Madrid.
