“A day at the races!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Amazing value for a day at the races. $20BDS for a grandstand seat on the finish line. Get that at home, I challenge you! You can stand on the rails outside and pay nothing if you want to!

Fantastic staff, great venue and wonderful 9 races on the day we went. To cash out in 7 of them made it even better!!!!!!

Good information provided and race cards for $10BDS.

Betting onsite is good although sometimes the payout is just before the next race. Good staff though.

Food and drink onsite is excellent value - steakfish sandwich particularly.

If you want, eat at one of the roadside stalls once you leave.

Easy to access on the main road between the Gap and Bridgetown. Not too busy afterwards either.

A great day and would definitely return.

“Barbados Turf Club”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

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.

“Take a walking tour through history!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Great walk through some historical sights in Barbados. You get an old world feel to the place as you see some of the older buildings. Its an easy walk and a great way to take a break from the beach. Make sure to hydrate, for it can get warm walking around!
