Rated as one of the best racecourses in Asia, the Mahalaxmi Racecourse was built in 1883 along similar lines to the Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia. It's spread over 225 acres and has an oval shaped 2.4 kilometer race track. The Grandstand is a designated heritage structure.
Horse racing is held at the racecourse from November to the end of April, on Sunday and Thursday afternoons. Towards the end of the season, races are held on Saturday and Sunday. The Indian Derby, which takes place in February, is the major occasion there. The inner lane of the main racing track is open to everyone for walking or jogging, during certain times in the mornings and evenings.
