About the event


Horseracing is a much-loved sport in Oaxaca. The horses are gorgeous and fast! The betting can be hot or hidden. The crowd includes “kings” and scoundrels, kids and grannies.  I’ll illustrate the races with some of my many hundreds of photos taken 2011-2019. And I’ll tell you how horseracing here differs from horseracing in the US and UK, for example. You’ll discover nearby racetracks, as well as the difference between “official” races and village races. Also, you might want to know about the owners, the trainers, and the  jockeys. Not least, I’ll introduce you to my favorite jockey, a young girl everyone calls “La Loba,” or the wolf, because she is so fierce---and intent on winning!
