Betting is illegal in the canaries. Having said that there are bars that take bets over the bar on races but obviously it's not regulated. I'm sure you could watch races though if it's covered by sky though (if the channel can be recieved in lanzarote as not all sky channels are).

Not in Matagorda area but the Sports Bar in the Old Town shows horse racing and has betting facilities as well.

Its in the street above the harbour on the opposite side from T & J Carribean Tapas and just before you come to Emmas Cantina.

There are one or two bars in the shopping centre in Matagorda that show horse racing and (take a bet). One downstairs and one upstairs.

Do the bookies have the Racing Post Time Form ratings paper displayed , or is it just standard british papers on the wall .

Thanks
