Our Training Facility
The grounds of the Mercury Equine Center are located on the property that once was the original Spendthrift farm training facility. It has been transformed to be a complete equine training center. The gated facility on 60 acres includes a private 5/8 mile dirt training track. The track features the original finish line post from Keeneland race track and includes break-away safety rails. This recognized thoroughbred training center includes a clocker’s stand and gate to turn in official works to qualify horses for gate approval and racing. Three large barns contain 160 stalls with extra-wide shed rows to train during inclement weather. Veterinarian and blacksmiths are scheduled on a regular basis for examinations and any necessary treatments. A team of veterinarians is on call for emergencies.
