Oscar-winning actor and longtime polo player Tommy Lee Jones has sold, for a recorded $10.95 million, a 55-acre equestrian estate with a training track in Wellington, according to a deed recorded today for the off-market deal.
Jones sold two properties — including a track parcel, outbuildings and a playing field — via a single deed to Waterford Wellington Properties LLC. That company has a Wellington address associated with Maureen Brennan of Middleburg, Virginia.
The larger property Jones sold is at 12550 40th St. S. and the playing field is at 4280 125th Ave. S. Both properties lie south of Lake Worth Road.
Jones had owned the larger property since October 2002, when he paid $2.95 million for it, property records show. He bought the smaller parcel in June 2003 for a recorded $1.1 million.

The deed lists Jones’ primary home as San Antonio, Texas.
The property has been on and off the market for several years, and at one point was listed for sale at $26.75 million, according to published reports. In 2015, the price was lowered to just under $20 million.
The polo field is regulation size, and the estate also includes two barns with 48 horse stalls and seven tack rooms, 16 paddocks and a four-bedroom staff house. The property also has a lake and a nature preserve.
Jones has been nominated four times for Academy Awards, winning one as best supporting actor in 1993′s “The Fugitive.”
He reportedly owns a 3,000-acre cattle ranch in San Saba County, Texas, and a ranch near Van Horn, Texas. The Wellington property was known as San Saba.
