I have a farm with a certified 5/8 mile track and a 12 stall barn that's sitting empty. I ride jumpers and have another barn on the property, so that barn is just sitting there doing nothing, but looking pretty. I was thinking perhaps a TB trainer would be interested in doing a training barn deal. Since I do not know any TB people at all, I don't know where to start. Can anyone help me?

Thank you :)

Contact the folks at the Florida Thoroughbred Owners Association, maybe they would have some ideas on where to advertise:

http://www.ftboa.com/

And there is Ocala4Sale.com, might be worth putting an ad in there also.

Also contact the OBS. Maybe they can help you with some contacts too.

Just wanted to add that some trainers with smaller operations would love to be able to truck in and train on your track for a day fee if you are open to that?:yes:

Not to send you to a different bulletin board, but some Ocala-based TB trainers frequent the pedigreequery.com forums, too, and advertising is allowed there so you can ask directly.

if you can, run an ad in Wire to Wire, Thoroughbred Times or Bloodhorse. or call Joan Pletcher to see if you can lease it thru her..
