Mahalakshmi Race Course is located across the street from Dhobi Ghat. On any random day, you will find horses racing while locals are strolling on the inside walk-way. You will also find local sports teams practicing on the lawns here. Definitely a lot going on daily and its worth a visit :)

The place is green all through the year, and the air is so clean. If one goes through the area one feels a sense of peace, and tranquil. Surely Mumbai can boast of this magnificent racecourse

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
