The Sport of Kings -Horse Racing Season Begins – Barbados

The first horse race of the season begins January 6th and includes about nine races.

The Garrison Savannah is one of the oldest horse racing tracks in the Americas. Racing itself in Barbados is an important part of its heritage and dates back to 1845 when the tiny Caribbean island was part of the British Empire. British officers would race against wealthy merchants and plantation owners.

In those early days horses were a way of life: for getting around, for work and for play.

The Garrison Savannah, a short drive outside Bridgetown, has an 11 furlong tracks and runs races of various lengths.

The Barbados Turf Club is the main horse racing organization on the island. The Barbados Turf Club was established in 1905 and organizes three seasons of racing on the island. A race is run most Saturdays.
