The race course looked huge greenery area amid commercial buildings in South Mumbai. Due lack of time, this attraction was not included for visit inside in the day tour. But have crossed the race course few times which gave complete view of the area. It is on the way to Haji ali dargah, the nearest important attraction in Mumbai.

One of the best places to visit when in Mumbai. High profile crowd have a great chance here to bet on the races as this is considered to be the only legal betting opportunity in India. It is a passion for some and craze for others. Over all an electrifying experience when the races are on.
