The Ocala Jockey Club Farm
The Ocala Jockey Club occupies a 950-acre parcel of land in Central Florida. Old-growth trees, pastures as far as you can see, and stunning sunsets envelop you when you’re on-site. You’ll even find plenty of hills, giving the farm a rolling topography rarely seen in this region.
This picturesque environment is a great place for a horse. Training a young thoroughbred? Helping a horse recover from an injury? This is the perfect jockey club for the task. Those rolling hills come in handy if you need to condition an event runner and build up their muscles.
In fact, they offer training for thoroughbreds at every stage of their careers. While training on the track is nice, this farm has a range of settings for more well-rounded training.

The Ocala Jockey Club Restaurant is perched on one of the highest points in the entire county, let alone the farm itself.
