Racing activities in India
Ooty's Racecourse dominates the lower part of the hill station between Charing Cross and the lake. The horse-racing season runs from mid-April to June and on race days the town is a hive of activity; it's an event impossible to miss if you're in town. Outside the season, the 2.4km racecourse is little more than an overgrown paddock.
The Victoria Memorial provides a beautiful backdrop to Maidan racecourse from whose 19th-century grandstands you can watch some of India’s best horse racing at over 40 annual meets.
