Sanlucar de Barrameda is also noted for its horse racing which dates back to 1845 and takes place along a 1,800m stretch of beach at the mouth of the Río Guadalquivir during the month of August, from 6.00pm. This is a thrilling spectacle where real racehorses thunder across the sand watched by a large noisy crowd of spectators. There is nothing amateur about this event and you can expect to see spectator stands, bookmakers, paddocks and of course the winners enclosure. Now an international event with horses from other European countries taking part and many famous names amongst the spectators.

The dates for the 2018 horse racing in Sanlucar de Barrameda are 8, 9, 10 August & 22, 23, 24 August 2018.
