This was our first horse racing experience ever, and what better place to enjoy it at! We paid for the good seats at the grandstand. Not sure that was necessary, as the other seats seemed to be just as nice. Even if you did not get into the grandstand but stood outside, you'd still have a good view. But it... More

Great day at the races, very relaxed atmosphere, not expensive to attend, great views of the course, runners and riders . The Bajan people make your day they are so friendly and quite excitable. You will enjoy it.

Excellent day out for all the family. Relaxed atmosphere, frequented by locals and tourists. Would actually plan a future break to coincide with a racing event as we had a great day.Would recommend it to all, much more relaxed and fun than UK racing. Mind you the weather helped!

We were fortunate to be in Barbados (completely by accident) when the Barbados Gold Cup race meeting took place. The race course was within walking distance from our hotel too. What an experience, an absolutely wonderful and memorable day. I've been to numerous race meetings in the UK but none were as relaxed and carefree as this race meeting.

We walked to the racecourse on Sat 30th August and as we arrived too early we found a small bar at the rear of the grandstand for a beer, This bar also sells food during the races. We paid 20 Barbados dollars each to sit in the grandstand which was worth it as it is shaded, It is opposite the... More

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.
