Long Description:
Located at 200 Beulah Hill Road South, Pinehurst, NC, the facility is used for many other purposes also. There are polo events, fairs, and car shows, but mostly the area is for training harness horses for racing. "The grounds consist of three training tracks and several center aisle barns with approximately 300 stalls, as well as several paddocks. Champion trotters and pacers train on either the 1/2 mile sand/clay track, the 5/8 mile sand/jog track, or the 1 mile clay track, all of which serve as an ideal winter training facility."
