About the Barbados Turf Club

The Barbados Turf Club, which regulates and promotes horse racing in Barbados, was established in 1905 and organizes three seasons of racing per year. With approximately 25 race meetings throughout the year running from January to April (Spring Season); May to September (Summer Season) and from November to December (Winter Season).

The location is the Historic Garrison Savannah, close to the capital, Bridgetown. The Garrison Savannah has been the home of horse racing in Barbados since 1845. The officers of the British Regiment, who were stationed in Barbados, used what was then the parade ground to match their horses in races and the wealthy merchants and planters later joined them.

Today, the excitement produced by the thousands of exuberant spectators is contagious and this being Barbados, horse racing is used as a great excuse for an array of entertainment and festivities. The people of Barbados love sharing their sport with visitors and a warm welcome awaits.
