The Red Party (Spanish: Partido Rojo), also nicknamed together The Sharks (Spanish: Los Coludos), was an historical Dominican political party from the late 19th century to the mid-20th century. Ramón Cáceres and Horacio Vásquez were the main leaders of this party. The followers of this party were also known as Horacistas.
The symbol of this party, and where its name came from, was a rooster with its tail, where the rivals' symbol Los Bolos was tailless. The Red Party was banned in 1930 after the Rafael Trujillo's coup. Its ideological heir is the Social Christian Reformist Party.
