“Matric dance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2012

Our school went there for a matric dance venue. As the area is changing safety was a bit of a concern with some of the locals walking around drunk on the paving

“Day at the races”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2012

I dont go to the racecourse often. I had an invite with a corporate company that sponsored the races. We had a fabulous lunch layed on which i assume was layed on by the racecourse with their own inhouse caterers. All the food was fabulously presented and the variety was excellent. We could place our bets in the hall that was hired for the occasion and had a fabulous view from the grandstand of the horses. I am not entirely a supporter of horse racing, however this day was interesting.

“Horse racing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

If horse racing is your thing, i would suggest go for an evening race with a couple of friends, and just enjoy the evening. When we went there we booked a table as a group where they serve lunch and everyone has got a tv screen on their table where they can watch the horse race or you can walk outside and watch the horse race. Excellent evening entertainment.

“The Beat is on”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2012

The beat of the horses hooves are so inspiring to listen to. The excitement and thrill of each race to see if you won, or close enough.
