Hi. Trying to find info on the Aiken track...and I can't seem to. I wondered when the meet is, and what other tracks it may compare to in size/quality of horse. When I go to Aiken, I am going to be doing Infrared Therapy, and am wondering if the track is a good place to find work. I may want to walk hots for the exercise. Also not sure of where I am staying in Jan-April, and wondered about track housing just in case. Would be great to find a website, pictures, etc to give me some idea!
I am primarily going for the eventing season- but want as many back up options as possible!
Anyone familiar with the track? I know its a smaller one...but that's about it!
Thanks so much

There is no wagering in the state of South Carolina so the Aiken Training track doesn't have a meet as per say. They did however just recently have their ever popular Aiken Trials Saturday (69th running of it no less) on March 19th:

Ten thousand plus showed up which is impressive as always (http://chronicle.augusta.com/news/aiken/2011-03-19/thousands-show-69th-aiken-trials)
