Winston Andrew Trim was a true pioneer for the horse racing culture in Saint Lucia. Prime Minister Honourable Allen Chastanet said as much when he spoke on Monday about the 50-year-old who lost his life on Sunday March 26th 2017 in an automobile accident in Micoud.

At the time of his death, Equine Industry Consultant Winston Trim had been working closely with the Government of Saint Lucia and Desert Star Holdings Limited on building Saint Lucia’s first horse racing facility as part of the Pearl of the Caribbean project in the town of Vieux Fort.

The Prime Minister, on behalf of the Government, extended condolences to the Trim family, which has a long history of promoting the development of the local equine industry.

Trim has been credited for initiating the racetrack project for Saint Lucia. He had also been assisting the Government with providing training for young people in the industry and taking part in public consultations on the project.

He has been lauded by the National Equine Welfare and Sporting Association and others for his contribution to the creation of the local St. Lucian hybrid and for the work his work at his Roseau stables where he also ran a horse riding therapy program aimed at the development of autistic individuals.
