Carl G. Rose, owner of a highway construction business moves to Ocala, Fla.
Rose buys farm property on State Road 200 for $10 an acre and calls it Rosemere Farm.
Rosemere Farm becomes the first Thoroughbred horse farm in Ocala.
Rose was one of the first breeders in the industry to be known as a “commercial” breeder; one who bred strictly to sell, as opposed to racing his own stock.
