About Mahalaxmi Racecourse

Inspired by the Melbourne Caulfield Race Course, Mumbai's Mahalaxmi Race Course is attributed as one of the finest horse racing circuits in the continent. In fact, such is the grandeur of this landmark that its grandstand is on the list of 'heritage structures in India.' This place is best visited during the months of November to April when some of the most prominent racing events are held here, the most prominent one being The Great Indian Derby, held on the first Sunday of February. Distinguished personalities from across the country grace the race course with their presence during this time of the year. Other prestigious racing events include 2000 Guineas, 1000 Guineas, St Legers and Oaks. Made on the marshy flatlands once known as Mahalaxmi Flats, the circuit is about a hundred years old and expands to a sprawling 225 acres of land and a race track of about 2400 meters. Owned by the Royal Western Turf Club, this racecourse has been fairly preserved by the Government of Maharashtra owing to its architecture of historical significance. Within the premises of the racecourse is a rather famous restaurant, The Gallops, where one can experience fine-dining with a gorgeous view of its lush green surroundings.
