Oxford Downs Racetrack for Florida Residents

Oxford Downs, located off U.S. Highway 301, south of County Road 42 near The Villages, featured nine quarter-horse races with a total purse of $18,000 in April.

Tony Mendola, one of the partners in the track, said Monday’s event was a successful start to what he hopes is a growing operation.

Mendola has said Monday’s races were procedural to satisfy state law. Most of the facilities have not been built, but are planned to be ready by the fall.

Despite not advertising the event, more than 100 people attended.
