This spectacular Ocala Jockey Club is one of the most beautiful large properties in Florida. The 200’ elevations are among the highest in central Florida. Also rare for Florida are the rolling hills, which are scattered with centuries-old oak trees. The property is reminiscent of Virginia, Kentucky or the English countryside.
The Clubhouse sits on a hilltop overlooking the pastures, and offers stunning views for miles in all directions. Formerly an award-winning restaurant, the Clubhouse is now utilized as a conference center and wedding reception venue.
The estate also includes 10 townhouses totaling 28 bedrooms and 28 bathrooms. The townhouses range from 2-bedroom to 5-bedroom units; all have brick fireplaces and 18’ ceilings with cedar beams.
Historically the farm has been a Thoroughbred breeding and training farm. In recent years the farm expanded to become the most prestigious 3-Day Eventing venue in the southern USA. In 2018 the Florida Sports Foundation named our competition the Small Market Event of the Year. Our 2019 competition served as a qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Equestrian improvements include 7 barns with 178 stalls, a 5/8ths mile track, 2 arenas, and 4 stunning, world-class cross-country courses. Many competitors have commented that the natural footing here is among the best in America. The soil is rich with limestone and water is abundant since the property is located above one of the largest aquafers in America.
The property is located just two minutes from an I-75 interchange. The farm is strategically situated between Ocala, the “Horse Capital of the World” and Gainesville, home of the University of Florida, and is 90 minutes north of Orlando and its world-class attractions. The World Equestrian Center is a short drive away, as is HITS.
Additional land parcels and additional townhomes are available.
