Living about five minutes away from the Historic Garrison Savannah, I use it to workout on most evenings, or to simply, disconnect and recharge after a long week. They is horse racing on most Saturday afternoons. But also a nice spot to sit and relax in the shade of the many trees alone, with friends or family with kids. They... More

Once again we visited Garrison Savannah for the Saturday afternoon racing card. Excellent entertainment - a lot different to racing in the UK - but fun. Good amenities and lots going on. If you are lucky enough to be in the members lounge, there is even air conditioning. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys horse racing at home for a... More

Racing at the Garrison is a more intimate experience than at most USA and UK race courses. On the grounds you can mix with the locals and enjoy some of the islands popular treats.

An exciting place to be especially if you like horses and horse racing. You also get an opportunity to meet vendors on the pasture.

For an exciting day enjoying some of the best racing in the Caribbean this is the place to be. With access for visitors to the Members Loungs with bar facilities and betting desk as well as CCTV with a great view of the track it's a great day out - don't lose your shirt!

We attended an event at the Barbados Defence Force, which is right across the street from the Garrison. As we were driving we could see people parked on the side of the road getting getting ready to watch the races and the soccer game. If you're feeling cheap you can do the same. I have never been to a racetrack... More

I would recommend tickets in the Grand Stand due to the heat. The bar is simple, but effective. The horse racing is excellent, great views and very competitive. Prices for everything are extremely good.
