South Florida-based trainer Stanley Ersoff has sold his Triple "E" Farm near Ocala, primarily because of time constraints.
"I decided to sell the farm because of the demands it placed on my time," said Ersoff, a former president of the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders' and Owners' Association. "It's difficult to try to run a farm as an absentee owner and train horses. I intend to continue training and racing horses."
Ersoff served as the president of the FTBOA from 1993-1996, and was a director of the Florida Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association. He is the trainer of multiple graded-stakes winner Band Is Passing, and bred the 1990 Florida-bred champion 3-year-old filly Charon.
Other horses bred or raised by Ersoff at the facility include graded stakes winner Where's Taylor, and millionaire Toyo Rainbow. Ersoff is currently in the process of reducing his stock and plans to sell a number of horses privately.
"I've decided to scale back and downsize my Thoroughbred holdings," Ersoff said.
