Track Length and Track Access
In addition to size of the property, we know that size of track is a big deal. Many horse farms in the Ocala area have 5/8-mile and 1/2-mile tracks, perfect for younger horses who are just beginning their training. Marion county also has plenty of longer tracks if you require greater length for keeping ready-to-race horses at the top of their game.

There are numerous properties available with track access, freeing you to continue your training without the hassle of daily maintenance.
