The Canadian Museum of Civilization has acquired the E.P. Taylor – Windfields Farm Collection of archival materials, memorabilia and 97 racing trophies, many won by Northern Dancer, the greatest thoroughbred sire of the 20th century.
This unique and historic collection was donated to the Canadian Museum of Civilization by the Taylor family, heirs of Edward Plunket (E.P.) Taylor, the prominent Canadian business magnate who revolutionized thoroughbred breeding and racing in Canada.
Some of the signature pieces of the Collection ―Windfields’ Breeders’ Stakes trophy from 1946 (E.P. Taylor’s first stakes winner) and Northern Dancer’s Kentucky Derby and Queen’s Plate trophies from 1964 ― will remain on view to the public until October 14, 2013.
