The race Course is a 200 and years old with a lodge, Three Pavilions, Gymkana Club ( constructed during 1933 ), Race track of 2335 meters and Golf grounds in side the track. When we went inside the race course it was a separate world is busily running inside the premises of Race Course. The official explained us the details of the race ground, turf and betting ( learned very little – enough of it ). It was very interesting to note that there is a swimming pool and thread mill for the horses too. The Pavilions with chairs are provided for members named after Dr MAM Ramaswamy and the middle one was constructed by the kings Bobbili and Venkatagiri during the year 1931, whose names are written on the stand.
There is an air-conditioned enclosure between the first and middle stand meant for VIPs like Chief minister and Governor. It was a panoramic sight to see the Madras for the top of the Dr. MAM Ramaswamy stand. There are many important events happened here including shooting of cinemas and love stories too.
