The heavy breathing and thunder of hooves is an experience like no other. Racehorses have been training at the historic Aiken Training Track since 1942. Now you can get a behind the scenes look at these young equine athletes before they leave to compete at tracks all over the United States.
Brad Stauffer, Head Trainer of Legacy Stable, will talk about the equipment used in training, diet, conformation, track composition and more! Watch horses on the track for their morning training. You will be close to the horses, trainers and exercise riders, so bring your camera!
This program is for participants ages 12 and up. Children ages 12 – 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Participants should wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes.
Space is limited. The registration deadline is the Thursday before each program. Registration and payment may be done at the Weeks Center, located at 1700 Whiskey Rd., across from Zaxby’s.
Participants will meet at the Rye Patch parking lot (100 Berrie Road SW in Aiken) at 8:45 am to be transported by mini-bus to the track.
