From the “Save Windfields Farm” web site:
Windfields Farm in Ontario is the birthplace of racing great and champion sire Northern Dancer, winner of the 1964 Kentucky Derby, in stakes record time, the Preakness Stakes, and the Queen’s Plate. Retired from racing after the 1964 racing season, he went on to an even more brilliant career at stud. The National Thoroughbred Racing Association states that Northern Dancer is “one of the most influential sires in Thoroughbred history,” and he is also regarded as the 20th century’s best sire of sires.
Windfields is under threat from development. If you would like to help save Windfields please check this web site out: http://www.savewindfields.com/Save_Windfields_Farm/Welcome.html
