Located in the Caribbean just northeast of Venezuela, the island nation of Trinidad and Tobago has distinguished itself in a number of ways, not the least of which is the reputation of its horse racing community—the Anima Race Club—and the race track they sponsor, the Santa Rose Park Race Track.
Like many other tracks, Santa Rosa has a fairly limited number of race days, about 48. But unlike other tracks, Santa Rosa races only one day a week—Saturday. It hosts a number of important races and draws great interest from the international horseracing community.
The international interest is mutual in that the racetrack has an extensive simulcast schedule that allows betting on horse racing worldwide. The Anima Club has established OTC locations at various points around the island and actively seeks to educate local individuals in horse racing and betting.
The racetrack also sports an extremely user-friendly and well-designed website to promote an understanding of horse betting and handicapping. Explanations of the simulcast schedule and the cable television programs featuring horse races, handicapping, and betting are featured. Clearly, the county's culture is steeped in horse racing, and the greatest expression of that is Santa Rosa Park.
