E. P. Taylor was a natural. As passionate about horses as he was about business, everything he touched turned to gold. Taylor built Windfields Farm into one of the world’s greatest centres of Thoroughbred racing and breeding. His legendary racehorse Northern Dancer was the first Canadian-bred horse to win the Kentucky Derby in 1964, and went on to become one of the greatest sires of the 20th century. Through racing trophies, photographs and memorabilia, you will discover that E. P. Taylor definitely had the Midas touch.
