This Morriston, Florida training facility is well-prepared for thoroughbred usage. Lejeune Training Facility is part of the renowned Oak Ridge Training Center, which counts among its graduates 2010 Kentucky Oaks winner Blind Luck and 2012 Tampa Bay Stakes winner Roman Tiger.

It also includes a 7/8 mile turf track, as well as access to an Official Starter.

Florida Attractions

What would Florida living be without a trip to Disney? Morriston is well within day trip distance to all of Florida’s world-famous parks and resorts at Disney, Islands of Adventure, and more. But theme parks aren’t the only attractions Florida has to offer. The nation’s oldest city, St. Augustine, is nearby on the coast and offers numerous opportunities to glimpse Florida’s rich history up close—along with its beautiful Atlantic beaches. To the south is Bok Tower Gardens where you can experience the unique music of one of only 185 carillons in the United States, explore the historic grounds, and hike to one of of the highest points in peninsular Florida. For those who look even higher, the Space Coast to the east offers not only a day at the beach but also the chance to experience NASA’s Kennedy Space Center as well as view shuttle and rocket launches.

Lejeune Training Facility truly has it all: everything you need to train Derby-quality equestrian athletes, a place to call home in the heart of Central Florida horse country, and a gateway to Florida’s sun-soaked, luxurious lifestyle. At Lejeune, you’ll always love where you live!
