I can imagine this on race day!

Sadly, there was no racing on when I visited but this is a huge attraction for locals and visitors alike, situated in plentiful grounds and masses of atmosphere!

After watching the racehorses every morning swimming in the ocean decided to go an watch them perform on the track. What fun, never been to a racecourse before so had nothing to judge it by, which is probably for the best. Had a great afternoon, the horses were great, atmosphere good, didn't do any actual betting just picking a horse... More

We spent a couple of hours at the horse races, in Barbados. The track is on the Garrison grounds, so historic buildings all around. Hung out with the locals at one end, on the grass, right on the rail. Thundering hooves speeding by! Ate 'bread-and-two' and cold Deputy beers, Fantastic, and free. ($10 for grandstand, but our way was much... More

We splurged and paid the $10.00 US for grandstand seats. There were a total of 9 races which we enjoyed. Unlike our sophisticated, computerized race tracks, the Barbados Turf club reminded us of race tracks of the past, up close and personal. The Barbadians appeared to be passionate about their race day. Many local folks pack up their cars with... More

I was visiting nearby and was draw to the epic scale of the racecourse. I visited in the early morning, when there was only a couple of Jockeys putting their mounts through their paces. It was must be some sight seeing this place in full packed mode.

We visited the races on sat 20th November, we did not sit in the stand, but by the rails with the locals, 4 beers $10, it's lovely seeing the locals excitement over the races. Fabulous atmosphere.

Entire family went on a whim and loved the excitement from the locals. An island jockey was in the races, and created loud and happy support from islanders and visitors both. Sharing the energy made the day more meaningful. The nearby George Washington house had a group of monkeys skipping through the gardens and the walk back to hotel was... More

This was our first horse racing experience ever, and what better place to enjoy it at! We paid for the good seats at the grandstand. Not sure that was necessary, as the other seats seemed to be just as nice. Even if you did not get into the grandstand but stood outside, you'd still have a good view. But it... More
