We have been attending the races for almost 10 years now. We, our family and friends really enjoy the races. You can get right up to the rail and almost touch the horses as they fly by. We do bet...even though we don't know a thing...and pick our choices based on the names...which is a very scientific method.
We took our 10 year old grandson this year and he was really impressed. They have improved things in the last few years and there is a lot more food choices available.
We especially like the Sandy Lane Gold Cup Race in March which you need to get there early for. We have yet to go in the stands and watch on the grass at the far end, going up to the rail as the race starts.
It is also a great place to people watch.

We went to the race day , & really enjoyed the thrill of betting !! You get a booklet & sheet of runners & the races they have one etc , if you sit in the stalls to the left as you go in you are right in front of the finish , it's such fun as the locals get so excited or anoyed if they have won or lost ! I had 2 winners & 3 seconds & I no nothing about racing . It was a great day !!

I had an enjoyable afternoon at the races, despite not knowing the horses, jockeys or trainers. The stand is small and rather old-fashioned but that gives it atmosphere. Many locals watch from further down the track where it's free (stand entrance was BBD 20 but there were 8 races). Easy to get to by bus from Bridgetown or St Lawrence Gap

It's like being back in England in the 1950's but that's the beauty and you can have a beer or two. The best day out in Barbados and family friendly too - don't come to Barbados and miss a day at the races!
