Carreras de Caballos de Sanlúcar de Barrameda

Sanlucar de Barrameda horse racing is a tradition that goes back more than a century. This is one of the most important annual events of this city on the Costa de la Luz.
Born in 1845, at the foundation of the Sanlucar de Barrameda Horse Racing Society, this tradition was born from the races that the fish sellers made in order to be able to arrive first at the market and sell first.

The Sanlúcar horse races are held annually on the beach of the Spanish municipality of Sanlúcar de Barrameda in the Andalusian province of Cádiz. The peculiarity of this race is the fact that it is organized on the beach, in a natural racecourse. The race is organised every year in August.
