Beach Horse Races

Sanlucar de Barrameda, August  

Beach horse racing Sanlucar de Barrameda

You can bet on enjoying waterfront spectacle, the oldest horserace in Spain. Started over 150 years ago when royalty summered in Sanlucar, the horses race hell-for-leather along the Atlantic and riverside beaches and it’s all free, so you’ll have spare cash for a flutter.    

Always held over two alternate weeks in August, horses come under starters orders at sunset, taking advantage of the space cleared by the receding tide. Sanlucar itself is a gorgeous small town with regal architecture dating from its heyday. It’s also the home of ice cream in Spain and August is the perfect time to try one!
