Horse Racing at the Garrison Savannah, Bridgetown
Bridgetown , St. Michael
Concierge.com's insider take:
An afternoon at the races is a festive, adrenaline-spiked break from beachside languor. Barbados boasts a strong history of thoroughbred horse racing: The Turf Club was established in 1905 and still holds a lost-in-time appeal. Rowdy onlookers—both locals and tourists—sip coconut water, place bets, and nibble on traditional Bajan fare (pudding and souse). Try to score an invitation to a luxe corporate box overlooking the paddock bend. Sandy Lane Gold Cup takes place the first Saturday in March and is the most prestigious race of the season.
