Joan’s ultimate joy and success come from matching her clients with perfect equestrian estates, Ocala horse farms, and major parcels of Ocala land. This unique skill has distinguished her in the Ocala market.
A passion and love for horses, land and development have been a hallmark in her life since childhood. Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, Joan’s Father was a builder and developer. He would buy several hundred acres at a time where she could indulge in her obsession with raising, training and showing horses, while learning all about the business. Joan launched her real estate career in her home state and still maintains her licenses in Florida, Arkansas and Texas.
While living in Arkansas, Joan met the love of her life, J.J. Pletcher, a Thoroughbred race horse trainer. They married in 1981 and continued their life long passions together as a team. In 1985, the Thoroughbred business brought them to Ocala. They designed and built CB farms, an $8 million dollar Thoroughbred Training Center.
For the Pletcher’s, horses, farms, training centers, and land are a Family Tradition. They are the proud parents of Todd Pletcher. He has won seven Eclipse Awards, three U.S. classics, three Canadian classics, 10 North American earnings titles and nine Breeder’s Cup Races. He carries the titles of 15 time Leading Trainer for Gulfstream, 12 time Leading Trainer for both Saratoga and Belmont and has won 4,133 races overall. In addition, Todd is the all-time leading money winner in the United States – over $300 million.
Today, J.J. and Joan own a racing stable of about 15 horses, all of which are trained by Todd. They also own Payton Training Center, named after their first grandson, an 80 acre private training facility in Ocala where they break and train about 100 per horses. They love Ocala, the people and believe in giving back and making a difference in the community where they live and serve…..this is their home!
