“Horse racing in the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We saw the racetrack from the Skytrain just before Siam station coming from the river and decided to give it a try.
Its only 100 Baht entry and you can bet as little as 50 Baht. Plenty of drinks and inexpensive food available inside.
If you enjoy a day at the races give it a go.

“Nice day out at horse racing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We attended fortnightly race meeting at the RBSC. Pleasant day out and lots of local interest. Facilities in our area in need of some TLC. Nice and inexpensive way to pass a few hours. No winners though!

“Feels like a prison yard race track, but still fun.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Not a bad option to spend a few hours in Bangkok if you like a punt. The track has a bit of a prison yard feel with concrete stands and barbed wired fences around the track and mounting yard.
Collared shirts are required for entry, but like at other attractions in Bangkok there's someone at the entrance to hire you one.
Located near the east end of Sukhumvit, the Ratchadamri sky train station is located next to the track however it's on wrong side to the entry. You'd be better served getting off at Silom and walking.
This is one of two race tracks located in Bangkok, with race meetings rotating each weekend between the two venues. Most race days are on Sundays but they do hold the occasional meeting on Saturdays.
