Founded in 1812 by the British governor to maintain good relations with the Franco-Mauritian settlers who ran the island's economy, the Champ de Mars Racecourse has long united communities on the island nation of Mauritius. Over 200 years later, thousands still flock to the track each weekend to share a passion for horse racing.
