Private Training Center for Sale and the Tour of the Century info

Southern Indiana-based private training center available for $850,000 OBO. Not listed on the MLS. Certified for workouts to be published at DRF/Equibase, Wheeler Training Center is now on the market for the first time in 20+ years, even as slots fueled Indiana purses near $35k for MSW.

Where to begin? Three quarter mile dirt/woodchip training track with starting gates, probably needs some work on top layer of surface. Caretakers home, equipment sheds, several barns, 40+ stalls, 200+ acres overall, par 3 golf course, currently operating bar/restaurant, and a 6000+ square foot home with private lake. For those of you familiar with the area, this land is about 10 miles up the road from Cook’s Training Center on Indiana Hwy. 60 towards Borden. Less than 2 hours ship time to Keeneland, Churchill, Indiana Downs, Hoosier Park, and Turfway.

Let me know if you are interested and I will put you in touch with the trainer that currently resides at the property. The owner is fielding offers from commercial interests that would bulldoze the thoroughbred operation, so this is a last ditch effort to get some horse people involved. My email is

Thoroughbred Racing Tour of the Century? How about 22 days visiting top thoroughbred racecourses in France, England, and Ireland? See this link for more info about the Australian guys putting such a fantastic trip together, leaving in early June:

Back to regular equine physiology/science matters next post – but I had to throw these two seemingly unrelated things out there, thanks for listening.

  1. Updated: Entire property has been sold to a commercial developer who is only interested in keeping the golf course and bar. Private home for sale separately, as well as thoroughbred training facility. Price not yet made public, but will be listed on the MLS in early May.

    Entire price was $800k, so assume the three quarter mile dirt track, several barns, 40+ stalls and caretaker/trainers home to be around $250 with lease option available.

  2. Do you know if they ever sold/leased the horse part of the training center? If it’s still available, could you point me in the right direction of someone to contact?
