The Hipodromo Argentino de Palermo is a horse racing course located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. One of the most prominent horse racing venues in Argentina, its installations include a 2,400 meters track suitable for races in all weather.
The establishment was founded on May 7, 1876, as the first racecourse in Buenos Aires, and the first National Derby was held there in 1884. The Jockey Club took over operations of the venue in 1883.
On its inauguration, the trains and streetcars of Buenos Aires were not enough to transport the large number of people who wanted to attend the event. However, close to 10,000 people witnessed the first race ever disputed at the Hipódromo, which was won by the horse "Resbaloso".
