Concierge.com's insider take:
Argentina has always been mad about thoroughbreds, and this palatial racetrack is an embodiment of that enduring ardor: Growing out of the original 1876 grandstand, the Hipódromo's opulent shell was designed by French architect Louis Faure-Dujarric and completed in 1908. The place can accommodate an impressive 100,000 fans of what the Argentines—in British fashion, since the sport was introduced here by Britons—call "turf." The top racing event is the annual Gran Premio Nacional each November.
