What brilliant fun, I'm not a betting person, probably once a year on The National, but a few Bajan dollars on each race for all the family and a few beers and rums too. Only a few dollars for entry,... More

This is the ultimate fun for those that enjoy the ponies and also for the rest of us. You can enjoy the thrill of seeing the horses gallop right in front of you. It is a great experience.

Attended the Gold Cup race -brilliant day out. Great atmosphere, singles, families and groups all accommodated for. Made sure I purchased my ticket in the seated area in advance. Food and drinks are plentiful. Betting booths were fully staffed. Returning next year.

We had a great day out at the races, ate beef roti and drank rum whilst we shouted alongside the local!s for our horses to win. Lovely and friendly atmosphere, we sat in the grandstand just near the finishing line. Garrison Savannah iis well worth the trip ☺

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
