Great atmosphere. The crowd was good fun as you find in racecourses though-out the world. Great days racing although I always say that understanding the rules is the important thing and I did feel like I was on the back foot as I did not understand the form. Not the same as the UK.

Our friends bought a deal to a day in a VIP lounge at the race track. A fantastic experience with free drinks and snacks plus our own private betting opportunity. Of course we gambled and we lost some and we won some

Great way to see a different side of Mauritius. You have an opportunity to see Mauritius as it was a long time ago. People dress up in hats and are betting left and right. You don't have to bet a lot to be a part of this experience. You can visit the horses before the race and find your favourite.... More

This is the oldest racetrack in the Southern Hemisphere and is heavily steeped in its history and tradition. Even if horse racing is not your thing, it's worth checking out the locals going nuts, cheering their horses to the finishing line. It does not need to be an expensive day with entry to the stands @ Rs175 and the ladies... More

This is one of the oldest race track ever. Tracks are nice. On the day of the race the excitement and the thrill is high. People are all over the island are in one way or the other are involved. Bettings are high. :D if properly researched and placed, odds are you might make some money from the betting. Best... More

Great time at the races never been before, good view from stands or at finishing line, what a rush to see the efforts they make and the thrill of the locals, I'm not a gambler at all but exciting time was spent there

It was different experience visiting race track on Saturday afternoon. The ground area was pretty crowded however when you get ticket for upstairs it was not bad with balcony view. Went up to the peak to visit old prison as well where you can test brandy and it was nice view of Port Louis and Race track. Work to visit.
