Hipódromo de La Zarzuela launches its new website

23/02/2017 - Madrid
Press release HZ

The Hipódromo de la Zarzuela 2017 Season’s premiere will involve its online facility, since the digital project began in 2016 offers from today, Thursday February 23rd, its first and foremost result: A new website for the Madrid’s horse racetracks, which will keep its address

In this way, the new website constitutes the first stage and the cornerstone on which it is based a large part of the digital strategy planned by the Madrid-based company for the next years. That is why the website itself will be subjected to a continual updating, reviewing, and improving process, which envisages the introduction of novel features already contemplated in the plan, as well as those resulting from the periodical assessment of the results reached.

The development process for these website has been based on three pillars. First, the creation and projection of a brand image which answers the quality leisure positioning which is being sought; second, a high usability level, which allows users to achieve a fast, simple, and satisfactory access to the contents which they are required to know; and last but not least, useful and attractive contents which meet the needs of the different users’ profiles (new public, aficionados, and industry professionals), and which contribute to improving the Hipódromo de La Zarzuela’ place in the searchers.


The home, which constitutes the first impact for the user, has been configured taking into account the three above mentioned pillars, seeking to promote its use towards the following levels in the website, knowing about the users’ interests, and promoting their visit to the horse racetracks facilities. Thus, the landing page has been organized with a main menu with sections, an attractive display of the horse racing plans, direct accesses to the Season’s novelties, and to the turfteinment or the integrated offer included in those plans, the Breaking news, and a secondary menu.

With regard to the contents, these have been reorganized in an easy to use main menu, and in a second further menu located at the end of the website. In order that surfing through the website is easy and intuitive, each section unfolds a super-menu showing all the contents included on it.

- “Visit La Zarzuela” includes all the basic information which a new user of the website needs for getting ready and enjoying a day at the races.

- “Races and Bets”, includes the information regarding the racing Season in general, and each race meeting in particular, as well as the basic information required for placing a bet. We also highlight the introduction of a new subsection within this section, the so-called “Hall of Fame”, showing the records reached in our horse races, and making a review of the best ones in our history. This is an ambitious section, which will experience a graphical growth in the next few days.

- “Events and Brands” offers a general vision about the way in which a brand can join its values to those of Hipódromo de La Zarzuela, or take part and be present in its spaces and events.

- “Company” includes a letter of welcome, an overview of the history of Hipódromo de La Zarzuela, and useful and required information about the corporation, besides of that demanded by the Transparency Law.

- The secondary menu includes the press room (News, Information about the industry, and Matriculation and Partants), the information linked to the Training Center, and different regulations regarding the facilities.

We invite you to pay a visit to the new website of Hipódromo de La Zarzuela
