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.

A really nice afternoon of lazing in the sunshine and soaking up Bridgetown life. We did not gamble (not gamblers) but still had fun choosing a horse. Drink was fine, people were lovely and animated, passionate discussions erupted. The horses were magnificent.

We went out for a day at the races while here on holidays. This was a great track and had an excellent time taking in the races. Placed a few small bets and managed to break even after a few rounds of banks. Great day out!!!!

We come here for the races every time we visit sunny Barbados! Great day out and fairly cheap to gain entry! They have a small bar and the drink prices are reasonable. There are usually eight races and they usually race on Sundays. Give it a try, you'll enjoy it!

What a fun afternoon! A reel mix of holiday makers and locals having a flutter at the races. It feels a bit different to racing at home but still excellent. The stand is in the shade the bar, bookies and toilets are all in easy reach and you can get food. Didn't win a lot but who cares, would defiantly... More

Whenever I'm in Barbados, I do love to pay a visit to race day at the Garrison. It's a great day out for all the family. Rather than sit in the stands, I like to be in the grounds where the atmosphere fun and there are lots of lively characters.

Sit or stand around the outside of track. Get a couple cold beers, something from the many BBQs and bet with the Bajans

What a great way to spend the day, watching the horse racing. I put a $2 bet on and lost which was not surprising as we bet on the jockey wearing the nicest colours or the name of the horse we liked - all part of the fun though , but there are some serious race goers who would love... More
