Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame and Museum

Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame and Museum

The Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame and Museum was established in 1977 as a tribute to the famous flat racing and steeplechase Thoroughbred horses that trained in Aiken, South Carolina.

A project of the local Jaycees, they were aided by Thoroughbred horse racing expert Whitney Tower, horse racing editor for "Sports Illustrated" and Vice President of the National Racing Museum and Chair of its Hall of Fame.
