Northern Dancer cemented his status as a Canadian hero with a record-setting 2:00-flat victory in the prestigious Kentucky Derby. A homebred from E. P. Taylor’s Windfields Farm, Northern Dancer was trained by Horatio Luro. He was named champion at two in Canada after major stakes victories on both sides of the border. At three he was named champion colt in the U.S. and Horse of the Year in Canada. While not a Triple Crown winner, he won three classics — the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes, and the Queen’s Plate.
