We had a look at the racecourse on a recent visit to Port Louis, Mauritius. There was no racing that day, so not much to see but I was still surprised that horseracing would be so popular in a remote island in the Indian Ocean.

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).
