The Hipódromo de San Isidro is a horse racing track located in San Isidro, Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is owned by the Jockey Club. It was inaugurated on 8 December 1935 and is one of the largest in the Americas.

The Hipódromo is located 22 km from Buenos Aires City. It has an area of 1.48 km². The grass track is 2,783 m long and 45 m wide, allowing for thousand-metre races without turns (or 1,400 m using a diagonal). There is an inner sand track, inaugurated in 1994, which measures 2,590 m in length by 31 m in width.

The covered surface amounts to 32,000 m² and allows for an attendance of about 100,000 (the highest recorded figure was 102,600 attendants, in 1952).

Each December the Hipódromo hosts the Gran Premio Carlos Pellegrini, the most important horse race in Argentina.
