The Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup is one of the most prestigious events in the Eastern Caribbean horse racing calendar, attracting visitors from all over the world!

For many years both local and regional jockeys have competed here, including some top international jockeys and trainers, with thoroughbred horses from the UK and North America featured - some owned by the world’s leading investors in thoroughbred racing.

Barbados' climate is ideal in March, with temperatures hovering in the mid-twenties and very little rain so it's ideal for a horse racing holiday.

The big race is run over a turf course at a distance of 1,800 metres (8.95 furlongs) and is open to horses aged three and over. The Historic Garrison Savannah is a fitting setting for such as event, having been the home of horse racing in Barbados since 1845, and is conveniently located close to the island's capital, Bridgetown.
