Combined they bring the right mix of talent, passion and network to TapTruck2State where they serve Georgia and South Carolina from their prohibition era 1930 Chevrolet Delivery Truck.

AIKEN STEEPLECHASE ANNOUNCES FIRST RACE AT NEW FACILITY

The Aiken Steeplechase Association Board of Directors is proud to announce the inaugural steeplechase race at its new location. The Aiken Steeplechase holds safety for both horse and rider, and guest experience at the highest level. Our new facility at 2020 Richland Avenue East will allow one of Aiken’s oldest and most highly attended events to grow at a new level. First impressions are lasting impressions, and we are building a facility for the future that will support traditions both old and new.

We are excited and pleased with the progress and development and look forward to sharing it with our community. We encourage all to come out and celebrate our new facility with us on March 26, 2022 at the 54th running of the Aiken Spring Steeplechase.

Great evening at the 1st oyster roast. Thank you! We are already looking forward to the next one.
What a great night to BE sponsoring the first Oyster Roast at the ✨NEW ✨ Aiken Steeplechase racecourse! Our 5E tractor will be giving a tour of the facility that’s just RIGHT across the street from us. Come see Lang and Taylor for info on equipment at this event and more! 🐎🐎🐎🐎 #BEequine #steeplechase #Aiken #supportthesport #oysterroast #racecourse #johndeere #nothingrunslikeadeere

What you think
Anyone looking for barn cats, I have to TNR cats that are ready to be rehomed. Both are very sweet
I'm very concerned! Virtually all events, even church services, have been cancelled or postponed to inhibit the spread of the coronavirus and you are still planning to bring 1000's of people into our safe community where many of us have elected to retire??? Many of us are the most vulnerable and I feel it would be irresponsible of you to endanger us to that level. The visitors will leave but what will they leave behind? Please cancel the event on March 21!!!!
The whole world is taking precautions to avoid mass contact with the ever evolving COVID-19. This is not "just the flu". By holding this event you have invited 30K+ chances to spread the virus. I find your position, and that of the Mayor and City Manager to be very irresponsible.🤬
Does anybody have an extra infield outfield spot for sale?
Any one know if you can purchase tickets at the gate? No one answers the phone at the given phone number.
I got some great shots of some very fashionable couples at Aiken Steeplechase. Go see if your photo is there!!! https://stjohn.smugmug.com/Events/Steeplechase19/
It was a nice day! It’s a shame that they don’t improve the PA system, you can not understand or hear what is being said. It has been this way for years. Also, I just don’t understand why there is always a shortage of port a pots. You know about how many people are going to be there! I realize this is a fund raiser, but everyone pays a lot of money and things should be better. We have been coming for many years and things don’t seem to improve. It’s time to step up and make some improvements!!!
