Added 10 March 2019

Horse racing in Barbados takes on an exotic atmosphere on Sandy Lane Gold Cup Day, and this year was no exception.

The elegance in style and dining on show in the privately owned boxes and in the newest stand operated by Charles Edwards, the personalities in attendance for whom this premier Caribbean race day is a must on their social calendar, and the array of colour in the stands and on the Garrison Savannah itself all made for another smashing Gold Cup day.

And Sandy Lane’s general manager Randall Wilkie was happy, as he told Social Scene the upscale West Coast hotel would continue to sponsor the event. (GC)
