We had a fabulous day out at the races. It was very cheap to enter via the main gate and women go free. Once inside we were approached by a hospility manager who wanted to ensure our safety due to pick pockets in the area. Before we knew it he had taken us up to a box, right next to... More

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
