SAN DIEGO – Jenny Craig’s 228-acre ranch in Rancho Santa Fe now belongs to the richest man in the U.S.

According to public records, Bill Gates bought the horse ranch property for $18 million.

A spokesperson for the Microsoft co-founder said Gates has enjoyed visiting San Diego for several years.

The ranch includes a racetrack, guesthouse, five barns and a veterinarian’s suite.

Craig, who was the founder of a weight loss program, used the farm to train thoroughbreds, but then closed it in 2013. She wanted to find a buyer who would keep the horse facility.

The property was most recently listed for $25 million.
