Racecourse is more for punters. For tourists, it is only a green ring with parking in the middle. Best view is from Citadel.

As far as I am aware race days are every Saturday.If the weather is hot make sure you go in the VIP as there is virtually no shade in the middle of the course(plus you are really well looked after by Jacques and the team).
