Love visiting the races. You can either go into the stand or remain around the edge of the track with many locals, places to bet are available around the edge too. The track is circular and you are really close to the horses when they are racing. A must do if in Barbados on a race day.

We were staying very close to the Garrison so thought we'd go to the races on the Saturday afternoon. We didn't pay to go in the grandstand we stood at the opposite side of the track where lots of local people were watching the racing. We put a bet on, having asked local advice, and managed to win. Lovely atmosphere... More

First time my husband and I have been to any race track. We went in May 2016 I think it was a bank holiday and had a brilliant day. The ticket office was very helpful and explained how things worked etc. It really was a very memorable day out mixing with the locals, making a few bets and having fun.

A great day out if you really love races usually Saturday is the day to go have fun and bet on world class race horses. You have the option of watching from a box the stands or on the grounds. During the week fitness walks runs and exercises are done here s well. Its all part of historic Bridgetown

We decided to visit the races on Saturday and had a great time. We bet on a few horses, relaxed in the stands and drank rum. We got a roti for lunch which was super tasty and an ice cream for dessert. Overall a great experience and a fun few hours doing something a bit different.

We actually went to Garrison Savannah for the running track that goes along the horses race track, on the inside. The track is made of asphalt and is about 1100 m in length. Perfect for running intervals early in the mornings!

We were staying in a hotel nearby so decided to walk over to the racecourse at the Garrison and we really enjoyed our visit. We didn't go into the Grandstand, for which there is a charge,we just mixed with the locals at the side of the track. There are several betting stations around the 6 furlong course and the locals...

During each horse racing season there are several races that are advertised online. We went on a Saturday in the afternoon and the first race was approximately 2pm. Instead of paying to go in the stand we pulled our car up onto the grass area overlooking the race track and walked over to the barrier to watch the races. It... More
