While November always means the Breeder’s Cup for horse racing fanatics stateside, Buenos Aires holds its own this time of year with a variety of events for equine enthusiasts.

The Hipodromo Argentino de Palermo is the focal point of many of these events including the Argentine Derby which was contested on Saturday. (YouTube video) According to Clari­n, the Hipodromo is gleaming again after a recent $50 million renovation including a full Paddock remodel and the installation of several high-definition TVs.

The Argentine Open Polo Championship, the country’s most prestigious polo tournament, also kicked off this weekend in Palermo with matches running every weekend through December 5. Movistar is the title sponsor of the Campeonato which enters its 116th year; more information can be found on the official website.

Another event on the immediate BA horse horizon is Tribuna Real, a four-day celebration of polo complete with fashion shows, cocktail parties and tango performances. Tribuna Real will be held at Hipodromo Argentino de Palermo, and online reservations for specific events can be found on the Tribuna website.
