Horse Racing: Gran Premio Nacional 2014
The "Gran Premio Nacional" (GI), the oldest and most important race in the Argentine turf, will take place on Saturday, November 8th, 2014, at Hipodromo Argentino de Palermo, Av. Libertador & Dorrego.
On October 5, 1884, the Hipodrómo Argentino de Palermo inaugurated what would become the most important race in the yearly calendar, the Gran Premio Nacional. This great prize is also known as the "Argentine Derby". This outstanding 2500-meter race is very attractive for the public since due to the distance the start is located facing the grandstands. Other classics (GI) are included in the day's schedule: Gran Premio Hipódromo de Palermo and Gran Premio Maipu.
The Great Prize "Gran Premio Nacional" will be the center of a spectacular journey that will start at 1:00 pm. There will be a playground for kids, a gastronomic fair, exhibition of cars from the Fangio Museum, and live shows.
This fantastic day for the whole family will be closed with a music show by popular Argentine folk group Los Nocheros, at 9 pm.
