Private Training Center up for Auction near Louisville
A bit of a different post, but somewhat appropriate as a public auction is scheduled for late June on the above property just outside of Borden, IN – roughly 30min from downtown Louisville. Previously being offered as one big package for $800k, now a days you can bid on what you want – a 6,000 sq ft main house with pond/pool/lots of acreage, or a par 3 golf course, or a 6F dirt training track/several barns/caretaker’s home/acreage.
More details from an earlier post:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I have roughly a dozen more detailed photos that I can send to interested parties.
