The Mahalakshmi Race Course comes alive in horse racing season with the Royal Western India Turf Club. Personally I'm not a horse racing fan but on the side behind the turf club (from the road near Willingdon Club) there is a parking area. From the parking entrance are two restaurants Gallops (which I didn't like very much) and Olive. Olive... More

This is the city's horse racing track located very close to the Sea Shore and Haji Ali. During the morning and evening, common people use the race course for walking, jogging and running. Regular horse races are held on Saturdays and Sundays between mid-November and last week of April. There are two restaurants inside the race course which offer very... More

It was created out of a marshy land known as Mahalakshmi Flats and modelled on the Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne, it is spread over land facing the sea. One can have access to the racecourse in the mornings and evenings during specified timings for exercising, walking or jogging in the inner lane of the main horse race track. The racecourse... More

This was a brilliant evening out - for £3 you can spend a very fun evening here without breaking the bank - unless you go mad at the tote.

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 :)

In a crowded city of nearly 20 million people the race course is one of the few places which is a large open space you can take in a few deep breaths of fresh air. There is a walking track, a jogging track open to the public. The Turf Club runs the race course where horse racing is held. A... More
