Rio isn't the first place you would associate with a day at the races, but the glorious old course smack in the middle of Zona Sul hosts thinly attended events four days a week. The first weekend of August, however, the great and the good get their glad rags on and head course-side to indulge in a little gambling and a lot of shouting. The atmosphere of the big race, announced with gusto by the red-jacketed trumpeter, is worth the trip alone, but for an excuse to get dolled up and do something different - for free - the derby is hard to beat.
