This is a great venue if you want to get away from sunbathing for a day. The grandstand is shaded so you can enjoy the racing in comfort. You can buy food, drink beer or soft drinks. Even if you have never been to a race course it's very easy to place a bet and it's not expensive. Great fun.... More

Went to the horse racing on Saturday, it was the Barbados Gold Cup meeting. We had a great day out, it was packed out with locals and tourists all in their finest outfits! The atmosphere was brilliant and they also had a parade just prior to the " big race" A "must do" if in Barbados.

Don't expect Ascot, but the racing at The Barbados Turf Club is local, a good standard, friendly and a fraction of the cost of racing in the UK. It's a must for me on every visit to Barbados and a great day out.

Went to Barbados Turf Club as part of day out from all inclusive hotel. Thought it would be more exclusive, but was not disappointed. Had a great time with wife betting on horses and having a few cocktails, even won $ on a few races. Worth the trip if you like to see local sights.

Loved the local atmosphere could not understand the betting so did not do much of that. We had brilliant roti from the stand at the tote. Did not stay long but met such nice people.

Boxing Day at the races at the garrison Savannah is like a cross between a family reunion and a church picnic. Lots of fun, lots of food, and betting is unnecessary. You do not have to buy a ticket for the grandstand as the track is accessible from the street. There are lots of little food stands set up around... More

Today was the first time we've visited the racetrack but I cannot believe I've missed out on such a pleasurable experience; food, drink and people watching made the day for us, along with a few little wins. Definitely get along if you can, it's a great day out.

We attended one of the race meeting in January 2012 (there are 3). Great Day Out! All the usual amenities with one big difference. The weather! Superb. Easy to place a bet, get a drink and food. Overall I'd recommend it to all. It makes a pleasant change from the pool or beach.

best racetrack in the Caribbean, probably as it could be the only one i know of, mind you check out race days as not a lot of events, but if you are in luck there will be one when you are here, after all there are no casinos in Barbados, plenty of slots, but no where near as much fun... More
