This stunning estate is located in Ocala, Florida, the "Horse Capital of the World". It's also just a 20-minute drive to Gainesville and the University of Florida. This Ocala farm is located 19 miles from the new World Equestrian Center, which is the largest equestrian complex in the USA.
The crown jewel of the estate is the Clubhouse. Located on a hilltop overlooking the farm, the Clubhouse is currently utilized as a wedding venue. Throughout the 1990's the Clubhouse was an exclusive public restaurant. The Clubhouse has a commercial-sized swimming pool.
The Ocala Jockey Club has historically been operated as a Thoroughbred training and breeding farm, but is easily adaptable for other disciplines. Each November this venue hosts the Ocala Jockey Club International 3-Day Event. In 2018, the Florida Sports Foundation named the equestrian event the "Small Market Event of the Year". In 2019, this prestigious competition was a qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
Seller financing may be available. It is the owner's preference to sell the entire property to one buyer; however, sub-parcels may be available.
