The Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club understands the importance of working diligently to become part of the wider community. At its core, the Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club will be a centre of entertainment and a gathering point for Saint Lucians. As it continues to invest in its facilities, the Turf Club’s capabilities to host community relevant events and family friendly occasions will expand further.
The Turf Club also intends to be a job creator; a supporter of local businesses; a promoter of Saint Lucia and Saint Lucians; a platform for new business; a supporter of charity and education; and a contributor to Saint Lucia’s tourism drive and, in time, to its national identity.
The value of education in creating new opportunities is a core belief of the Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club. Training programmes will be rolled out that will prepare locals for industry specific jobs at the Turf Club. In addition, the Turf Club will be working with the Government of Saint Lucia on training initiatives to fast track the skillsets of locals as horse trainers, jockeys, veterinarians, stewards, administrators, grooms and more.
The Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club believes in the value of innovation in business and believes it has a unique opportunity to correctly set the parameters for Saint Lucia’s involvement in a traditional industry like thoroughbred racing. The Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club will not be bound by traditional business practice in the setting up and running of thoroughbred racing, rather it will draw from world’s best practice from across a myriad of industries to position Saint Lucia as a leader among the region. The Turf Club believes that this innovation is paramount to its future success and, in turn, to the level of support it can provide Saint Lucians.
