This is a place in Mumbai where city's elite crowd comes here to fulfill their desire of gambling. Horse racing is a major activity done here. This place is also famous among the locals for their morning walk. This place is like an oasis for this crowded city.

It is a lovely heritage. The vast racing track and greens overlooking the sea and Haji Ali is a vital lung to the surroundings dotted with furious construction activity. The main viewing gallery should be a protected site. In the mornings and evenings, you find common citizens walking, jogging, doing yoga, laughing clubs, etc. The betting arena gives you a... More

Well, the title itself tells something about this place. Usually, this place is mostly visited by early morning joggers and the race happens on Sundays. Its worth-a-visit if you like Horse races. Also this place used to be visited by couple of B-town people. Nowadays, events like Sunburn happens with their outstanding celebrity DJs and I have been here during... More

The race course - besides having its own club house has a bunch of new restaurants - all of which are quite excellent. The Race course itself is nice to view from many vantage points.

A vast expanse of green patch in the concrete jungle. People come here to jog or see the racing. Racing happens every Sunday. Worth a visit.

The place has a garden which is open 7-9 am and 5-8pm. There are some expensive articulate restaurants serving great food. The Haji Ali Tomb is a stones throw from this place. The thrilling horse races are conducted from Nov-Mar each year. There is also a horse riders club for amateurs.
