Oak Ridge Equine

A Top Training Center in Ocala's Horse Country

Oak Ridge Equine boasts a one mile dirt track regarded one of the best in the Ocala area. Developed in 2007, the surface of the track is meticulously maintained for uniformity, safety and all-weather use. The 3/8 mile straight stretches are ideal for early speed work with young thoroughbreds. Horses in training benefit from a regulation starting gate for gate card approval. The year round temperate weather allows for very few interruptions in training. Oakridge has been home to champions "Blind Luck" and "Stardom Bound" as well as many other top runners.
