WATCH SAN LAZARO LIVE RACING (Karera) : Live Horseracing at the San Lazaro Leisure Park (SLLP) is managed and conducted by the Manila Jockey Club, Inc. The Manila Jockey Club is a company with core competence in racing. It was founded in 1867 by the Spanish Governor-General to conduct horse races in the country. Originally, the San Lazaro racetrack and grandstand were built in Sta. Cruz, Manila on a 16 hectare property in 1912. MJC was formally incorporated as a business entity in 1937. In the 1950s, the Club was publicly listed with the Manila Stock Exchange. Additionally, thirty five off-track betting stations were set up and racing was broadcasted on TV. In 2003, a world class racing facility was constructed by MJC on a 77 hectare property in Carmona, Cavite, which is what is being used presently for the races.
