when it comes to alcoholic beverage consumption.

you get bored of playing slot machines in the casino, you can always

Regular races are held in this horse racing track everyday - the most
popular ones are the Sandy Lane Gold Cup (this happens in March), the
5000 (this is held in February), and The United Barbados Derby (every
August). To know more about the races held in the horse racing track,
you can check out its official website on the web.

course if you're about to visit this island. From the casinos to the
horse racing track, English is the language used for deals. If you're
