Kenilworth (10.6 km from Cape Town)
Backed by the dramatic slopes of Table Mountain, Kenilworth Racecourse looks out on the spread of the Hottentots Holland range – a setting unrivalled in the country. But it has not rested on its geographical good fortune; it has done everything possible to make the racecourse physically and aesthetically more appealing.
It has built a second round course and today the two round courses, bisected by a 1 200-metre sprint course – the three converging in front of the main grandstand – make Kenilworth unique. They also offer what many consider to be the best going in the country.
The courses are complemented by the new Club Stand and the Grandstand, which is constantly being renovated. Set in park-like surroundings, each provides excellent viewing and luxurious betting and catering facilities close to the horses.
Table View (16.3 km from Cape Town)
Killarney is a classic motor racetrack in Cape Town boasting magnificent views of Table Mountain. The course is ideal for novices but also presents a stern challenge for those willing to pin back their ears.
