Horse Racing in Mauritius
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We had a look at the racecourse on a recent visit to Port Louis, Mauritius. There was no racing that day, so not much to see but I was still surprised that horseracing would be so popular in a remote island in the Indian Ocean.

A fantastic day out. An amazing racetrack in a perfect setting. The spectators are passionate about the racing and it was a wonderful atmosphere. There is a lovely shady area behind the stands where you can place your bets & get a cool beer & snacks. Perfect! There is plenty of room to get a great view of the course & races. I would definitely go again, it was a great day out....

As an alternative to going in a box which was on offer by our hotel and tour operator, we booked a driver for a Port Louis tour to include a visit to the racetrack.

We... when I say we I mean my husband (I was free) paid 200 mru to get in and we easily found a place in the shade to watch the racing. From one of the food vendors, we ate a delicious Lamb dish in bread... chosen simply because they had the longest queue for around 200 rupees each.

The races are short, at once round the track and around 35 minutes between races. The winner come in with its owners so ample opportunity to photograph the runners and riders.

This gave us a real insight in how enthusiastic the Mauritians are about this sport.

I would suggest to feel a bit safer as in all crowded public places to have money kept in a sensible place.... apart from that, it was well worth the visit especially if you enjoy racing.
