Thoroughbreds Farm Tour   

Join Tom Sweeney, President of the Thoroughbred Owners of Fl and co-owner /race manager of Two Bow Racing on this tour. Old McDonald's farm this isn't.

This tour starts at the Ocala Breeders' Sale (OBS) Training Center to watch racers train on the one-mile synthetic racetrack. The next stop will be the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders Mini-Museum for a brief visit and history lesson. We will then take off to see two multimillion-dollar Thoroughbred farms and visit the incredible Stallions, Mares, yearlings and foals.

Last but not least, we will take a short ride back to the restaurant for a nice lunch, on own. There will be very little walking on the tour, and will include much information at all stops with Thomas and others. What a great opportunity to learn more about the Ocala Thoroughbred Industry from a multi-state licensed professional horseman! Participants will meet Tom at MTP Education Center to follow in own vehicle: 8415 SW 80th St. There is some walking, so wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water.

NOTE: This is an Educational Destination course. There is a different refund policy for Art Workshops, Educational Destinations, and Local Flavors. There is a twenty-five (25) Business Day refund policy for these events. Students must notify MTP at least 25 business days before the first day of each of these registered events in order to receive a refund.
