“Barbados Turf Club”

Good day out to break up your holiday and if you like racing. Best to spend a bit extra and book for the Members Lounge where a complimentary light lunch is served.

“Great Day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Went here on April 5th 2014, it's free to watch the horse racing. Had a lovely day betting just a few dollars on the 8 races. Had 4 winners and won a total of around $90 which made the day. Food and drink are available from the vendors, has we chose to stay outside and mingle with the locals, rather than pay to go in the grandstand.

“Good times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Had a nice relaxed time watching the races. Horses get pretty close so you really need to be mindful if you have little ones running around. We walked from the Radisson. Suggest that if you are within 1.5 miles of the track that you walk as the exodus once the races were over was CRAZY to say the least. Plenty of food and drink around if you get hungry. Got to watch a rugby match in the center of the field in between races. Had a great time especially since I didn't lose any money
