Frequently Asked Questions
Aiken's Fall and Spring Steeplechase events are a wonderful way to spend a day seeing the horses fly, spending time with friends, and enjoying the beautiful Aiken weather while tailgating!
The Spring Steeplechase is a sold out event every year and railsides, second row and even infield tailgating spaces are in high demand.
Last year’s RESERVED space holders may reserve all railsides and second row tailgating spaces until February 1, 2023. After February 1, all railside and second row spaces that are not renewed will be sold in a lottery. *NOTE: The only patrons who are eligible for the lottery are those who purchase a railside package at the 2022 Fall Steeplechase.
Spring 2023 Infield and Outfield Tailgate Spaces are $40 and sold online and in the office.
Patron Tickets will be available for purchase at all gates ($40 cash or check) on race day.
Patron Parking will be available at the Green Gate ($40 cash or check) on race day.
Lost or left at home tickets or parking must be repurchased at race day prices.
If I have a parking space for fall do I have the same space automatically in the spring? And vice versa?
The spring race and the fall race are separate events. Patrons that purchased a reserved space for the spring/fall race may renew that space next spring/fall by the deadline.

Afternoon dress is suggested for this event. Women guests at the Winner's Club and Guarantor Terrace Tents customarily wear summer/spring dresses and hats. Flat heels such as wedges are suggested. Men typically wear lightweight sport coats and ties. Shorts and jeans are not appropriate for the Tent Party. Attire on the rails is marginally more relaxed - we recommend a sportswear look for women and khakis for men. Dressing according to the weather is always a good rule of thumb.
