We found the tour very informative. We were on a short schedule and failed to truly absorb the information available. Yes, I recommend touring this facility. We plan to visit again allowing adequate time to truly absorb the information and history that is available.

We've been in the Hall of Fame exhibit many times over the years. Everyone we've taken there has been very impressed with the number of famous race horses that have been trained here in Aiken.

Very nice walking garden set up with Christmas lights. Hot chocolate or tea with cookies is offered. Free visit and shuttle. Parking is limited but you can park in the neighborhood behind the park.
