A Limited Edition fine art print by Alan Brassington depicts the wonderful Turf Club in Barbados, which he describes as "a mind-blowing adventure and an unusual clockwise course". The racetrack in Barbados is at the Garrison Savannah, which is less than two miles outside Bridgetown, the islandís capital. Garrison Savannah has been the home of horse racing since the colonial days of 1845, when the officers of the British Regiment stationed in Barbados used what was then just a parade ground to match their horses in races. The fashion grew and the soldiers were soon joined by wealthy merchants and local planters. The Barbados Turf Club regulates and promotes horse racing in Barbados and was established in 1905. The Club now organizes three separate seasons of racing per year on the famous six-furlong oval strip, combining major race days with family entertainment. Spectators can enjoy the colourful occasion from the stands or from the less formal picnic areas shaded by the tall trees around the track.
