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.

- This place is well maintained by the RWITCL - The races are on between November & Febrauary - Once you enter the race course the feeling is like English Men with Hats, Gloves, Sandwiches, Binoculars etc - The Derby is usually arranged on 1st Sunday in the month of February

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.

The Mahalakshmi Race Course comes alive in horse racing season with the Royal Western India Turf Club. Personally I'm not a horse racing fan but on the side behind the turf club (from the road near Willingdon Club) there is a parking area. From the parking entrance are two restaurants Gallops (which I didn't like very much) and Olive. Olive... More
