Brazil’s horse racing Grand Prix promises novelties, glamor and care for the pandemic

Brazil’ main festival of horse racing is coming: the Grande Premio Brasil. Held at the Jockey Club Brasileiro, between August 14 and 17, with free entry, bets starting at R$ 2 and outdoor space with security protocol, GP Brasil is a program for the whole family. “We are preparing a special moment for everyone to have fun safely,” says the president of the Jockey Club Brasileiro, Raul Lima Neto.

In addition to the eight restaurants that operate at Hipódromo da Gávea, the Jockey will have news on Saturday and Sunday: the renowned chef Pedro de Artagão will sign the ClubHouse menu, an exclusive area with lounges on the Tribuna Social lawn, all with advance reservation.

Chico, eternal ex-bracarense and Chico & Alaíde, will have a bar, Fuchico, with traditional snacks and cold draft beer. Alter craft beer will also be present with Las Empanadas, which will bring 8 options of savory and sweet flavors.

The races on the 14th and 15th take place between 1pm and 8pm. On the 16th and 17th, from 5pm to 10pm. It is highlighted the presence of new generation jockeys, such as B.Queiroz and L.Henrique, in addition to the experienced J.Ricardo and C.Lavor. On Monday, August 16, journalist José Carlos Araújo, known as Garotinho, will be honored at the Classic Press.

The main day of the GP Brasil is Sunday. Everything indicates that the dispute will be well balanced. Eyes will be on three possible favorites: Pimper's Paradise, 2020 winner, Jackson Pollock, (ABCPCC winner) and the Olimpic Kremlin.

Raul Lima Neto, president of the Jockey Club Brasileiro, says that even with the pandemic, the festival promises to be grand and bring together people who love horse racing and good entertainment, always respecting preventive measures: “Every day at the racecourse, we have a team measuring the temperature at the entrance, distance signs in the stands and booths, totems and sprayers of 70% alcohol available, in addition to the sterilization of spaces. We are preparing a special moment for everyone to have fun safely.”

The glamor of the Brazilian Grand Prix is eternal, and fine sportswear is especially mandatory on Sunday for those who frequent the stands and lawns of the Tribuna Social. On other days, sportswear and the use of shorts are allowed, with only a tank top, flip-flops and a football team shirt or a political jersey not being allowed. Spaces are subject to maximum capacity.
