Who Is Todd Pletcher
Todd Pletcher is one of the richest horse trainers in the USA, maybe even the richest of them all. As of 2020, his current net worth is estimated to be $280 million. In 2005, he made record earnings in a single season making $21 million! He then went on to beat it the next year in 2006 earning $28 million that year, and has continued on this trajectory ever since.
Todd has been around horses his whole life. He had worked as a hot walker for his father when he was only seven. “Hot walking” is the practice of horse management, such as a groom or stable worker who hand walks hot, sweaty horses after a workout. Pletcher attained his college degree at the University of Arizona and was a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. In 1989, he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science.
His jobs after graduating were again all around horses. He worked as a foreman, assistant trainer, and finally, trainer, working his way up the ladder to become a master horse trainer. Pletcher received his trainer’s license in 1995. Only one year later, one of his finest horses, Majestic Number, won it’s first race.
As of 2020, Pletcher lives in New York, where he enjoys his astronomically high net worth with his wife Tracy and their three kids.
