British photo shoot at the Garrison


Share post:

BARBADOS AND ITS HORSE RACING INDUSTRY stand to gain significant exposure in sports promotion thanks to an American-based company with offices in Britain called Betty Images.

Crew members for the production, the brainchild of the British Jockeys’ Association, and main photographer Bob Thomas arrived in the island last Friday for a week of filming at the Garrison Savannah and were the guests of the Barbados Turf Club for its eighth raceday last Saturday.

The company, which specialises in contemporary creative images, still illustrations and archival images, was here in Barbados for its second production, having filmed polo two years ago.

Among the cast for the still photos and video images were four budding young jockeys from England and Ireland – Mattie Batchelor, Michael Murphy, Ben Curtis and Sophie Killoran.
