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.

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.
