Does anyone know how many and the names of horse tracks in Puerto Rico? I think El Commandante is one.

I only know of the one, used to be El Comandante, now called Hipodromo Camarero. (http://69.6.252.59/englishome.htm) I'll be vacationing in PR at the end of February and this is the only track I could find.

Yeah, and it's the only one on the island.

It is the only track. It is beautiful and a fun place to go, although the fields are short and the take out is immense. Still, I would rather spend an afternoon at the track than sitting at a blackjack table.

Um...yeah, I think that I would call 40% immense.

Just make sure that you have a rental car to get to the track. There is no public transport going there from San Juan and a cab will run you about $50 each way.
