Default Cassada Gardens Race Track

We were in Antigua 17 or so years ago and spent the afternoon at the horse racing track, Cassada Gardens. We had a very fun afternoon there. Is it still in business? We will be there on the Brillance 1/8/05. Could they be racing that day?

You seem to be the Antigua expert here. Thanks for contributing so much to this board. You have been a great help. As it gets closer to Jan. 2005, can you find out more about the race meeting dates? Thank you!

If you could give me information on the race track I would appreciate it. When/what days are they open and what time do they race. I think my husband would love to go to the track.

This is unlike any race track your husband has ever been to. It's like a mixture of a county fair, a tail gate party with rum punch drinking. Not very professional. No tote board, just a chalk board. But it was fun!
