My son and I decided to enjoy our time exploring some of Barbados on our own. Little did we know it was Race Day. Not just any race day, but the Big Race of the Year, the Gold Cup (equivalent to the Kentucky Derby). We decided on this spot due to the several historic site nearby, and several geo-caches as...

Great day out but was spoiled by how long it took to place bets - recommendation go outside for food as its cheaper

Always have a blast at the Garrison Savannah.The racing is good and the atmosphere is fantastic. They race every other Saturday, year 'round with some special holiday cards,so check the schedule at barbadosturfclub.org before you plan your trip.

We stayed in the Savannah right across the road from the race course, so it was silly not have a look, apart from the horse racing you get to see the locals enjoying them selves there are so many characters its hard to keep your eyes on the racing, make a point of vixiting at least once during your holidays.

What the Racecourse lacked in amenities was compensated by the atmosphere and excitement. In need of some refurb but probably difficult being a World Heritage Site. The day was as exiting as any racecourse in the world I have been to. The locals are very passionate about their racing and in the know if you speak to the right ones.... More

We were lucky enough to be in Barbados for the Garrison Savannah Gold Cup Race Day - Saturday 4 March 2017 so we thought why not? We caught the local bus from The Gap for $2 BBD and got off right beside the track. If you wanted to pay to get in you could but we chose to stay by... More

We called in here on our return from Harrisons Caves and visited the Barbados Museum before crossing over the road to see the races at the Garrison. Great atmosphere and lots of horses being taken from their stables to the Race Course. Everyone seems to have had a good time. Well worth sampling the atmosphere of a day at the... More

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.
