Great time at the races never been before, good view from stands or at finishing line, what a rush to see the efforts they make and the thrill of the locals, I'm not a gambler at all but exciting time was spent there

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).
