Experience some Barbadian horse racing at Garrison Savannah, known internationally for hosting the Barbados Gold Cup. Horse racing on the historic savannah has taken place since 1845, when members of the British Regiment used the area to match their own horses. The club, established in 1905, has since developed into a 6 furlong (1,207 m) vibrant green track surrounded by bustling spectator stands. Refresh yourself with cold coconut water accompanied by pudding and souse, then head into the lively crowds to place a bet and feel the thrill of the race.

  • Beautiful historic British Garrison, preserved and and in wonderful condition. Old parade ground is now a horse race course and rugby ground. Wonderful to see the races every other Saturday! Try a snow cone while you are there, delicious!
