Horse Trotting Races, Palma de Mallorca

Trotting races are a popular form of horse-racing
Featured in: Events Calendar Updated

Trotting is a form of racing in which the jockey sits in a small cart behind the horse and must prevent the horse from breaking into a gallop. It has been popular in Majorca and Menorca for at least 200 years. 

Europe's first floodlit racecourse opened in 1965 in Mallorca. Trotting races (Carreras) are held around a 1 km track. If you go to a race meeting, remember that betting is an essential part of the process!
