For horse racing enthusiasts, horseracing is taken seriously in Barbados and is mainly held at the Garrison Savannah which is close to Bridgetown Barbados. The Garrison Savannah is named from back in colonial days (1845) when British Regiment Officers were stationed there. For horseracing fans, watch from inside the Garrison Savannah grounds in the Grandstand, Sir John Chandler Stand or the Field Stand.

But at the main events, people like me and local families who aren’t really into the racing like to picnic around the perimeter of the track where the trees provide shade.

Vendors line the area so there are plenty of local traditional dishes to try. Try the fried fish or chicken stew with rice! You can sample the Mount Gay rum or drink the coconut water direct from the coconut.

Ask us at Barbados Travel Deals for the main horseracing events dates that are taking place around the dates you’d like to travel. 2nd May is the Gold Cup in Barbados.  Barbados holidays make a great opportunity to watch horse racing in Barbados and can make a fun day out for all the family. Book your Barbados holidays, whether you plan to stay in luxury Barbados hotels or luxury Barbados villas, the choice is yours and we have the best Barbados deals.
