Mijas racecourse to get back up and running

EQUESTRIAN enthusiasts on the Costa del Sol are chomping at the bit as Mijas racecourse gets set to reopen.

A 20-year contract has secured the famous racecourse’s future, with work already in motion to host two European events.

The upgrade and reopening cost a cool €2.3 million, but the racecourse is sure to bring revenue to Malaga province.

The competitions are scheduled for October and February, with a total of 1,000 horses expected to compete.

  1. Last week I emailed the race course to clarify whether or not racing was returning. Their reply was that they were not aware of it, only that show jumping was coming and that the course was being modified accordingly. Figures quoted in other newspapers for these modifications are similar to those quoted in the article above so, is racing returning or has the reporter misinterpreted the proposals?

  2. this is the jewel in the crown of the costa del sol,late nights racing,music,eateries………….why the hell is it not open!!!!!!!!!!!!!!……………is it the fault of your countrymen again neo??????????
