Mahalakshmi Race Course is one of the oldest race courses of India. It is a lush green patch between the big constructions of Mumbai. Annual races and derbies are witnessed in huge numbers. Many people enjoy the race and a few bet on the horses.

This is the largest single open space in south Mumbai. It is maintained by the RWITC and the land belongs to the BMC. Horse racing is conducted over here for a few months in the year. It is open to the public most of the time. People come for walking, jogging, yoga and other outdoor activities. The 2.2 kms walking track and jogging track are very popular with the locals.
There is also a polo field in the middle of the race course.

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.
