Another race day looks doubtful

WHEN IT RAINS, it pours.

Just ask the Barbados Turf Club (BTC).

The cash-strapped BTC is now in a fight to save a third race day at the Garrison Savannah in the space of four weeks, after last week’s Independence celebrations left parts of the historic venue damaged beyond immediate repair.

Members of the BTC’s executive board were forced to inspect the damage to the western part of the venue last week, the morning after the Reveal Of The 50th Anniversary Of Independence National Monument at the World Heritage Site on Independence night, last Wednesday.

More than 10 000 Barbadians attended the event less than 24 hours after a trough system had dumped six inches of rain, leaving the area extremely waterlogged.
