It was really a treat to watch the 2nd oldest race course in the world,from the fort,on a no racing day.Enjoyed the little details from my binoculars and clicked a few shots too.I can well imagine the excitement of the racing day.All must see even without race.

there were no races going on when we visited the city. We saw the race course from the top of the Citadel Fort, and it presented a nice view

If you are looking for something different and enjoy the races, try this. The races are very well organized to a high international standard. Try and book a package from your hotel and get a place in a box, it is worth it.
