Valparaiso Sporting Club

Valparaiso Sporting (formerly known as Valparaiso Sporting Club), commonly known as the Sporting, is a thoroughbred flat horse race track in Viña del Mar, Valparaíso Region, Chile.

History

Valparaiso Sporting Club was founded in 1882 by members of mostly British origin. Since 1885, it is the site of the Chilean Derby, with very high attendances during its day.

In 1920, Valparaiso Sporting Club was also the site of the South American Championship (soccer) final.

Physical attributes

Races are conducted on two left-handed courses, one turf (about 2000 meters long) and one dirt (about 1900 meters long).

Racing

Purses at the Sporting are lower than at the two Greater Santiago tracks, Hipodromo Chile and Club Hipico de Santiago, but considerably higher than at the provincial tracks Club Hipico de Concepcion and Club Hipico de Antofagasta. Several prestigious stakes races are run at Valparaiso.

La cancha de atletismo es agradable para trotar. sobre todo en las mañanas. Es uno de los pocos lugares verde que hay dentro de la ciudad con aire fresco y tranquilidad. Se ven los caballos entrenando
