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

If you love horse racing, it is a must you go as it is only horse track in the island. You have plenty of food stores but beware, secure your wallet or smartphone and jewelries as pick-pockets are common.
