Fillies Dominate Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe 2011


It was a 1-2-3 finish for the girls and they were all descendants of Northern Dancer in this year's exciting Arc. It was an emotional win for the German connections of Danedream who won the classic her great grand sire Nijinsky could not.

Windfields Farm Group on Facebook


There is a group on facebook that was set up originally for former employees of Windfields to stay in touch and discuss their experiences and how special of a place it was. Lately there has been a lot of discussion about the condition of my little hero's grave along with the other special horses buried there. Some media pressure resulted in some clean up but I think this group would like to see more happen (like a memorial). Have a look and join the group.!/groups/2384512050/?id=10150311408187051¬if_t=group_activity
