1999 Canadian Horse of the Year and Champion Male Turf Horse

1999 Canadian Horse of the Year and Champion Male Turf Horse Thornfield, the 1999 Canadian Horse of the Year and Champion Male Turf Horse, boasts over $1 million in lifetime earnings. Bred and raced by Knob Hill Stable, the handsome chestnut champion won 50% of his races during his 1998-1999 campaigns, including the prestigious Canadian International Stakes (CAN-G1) and the Niagra Breeders’ Cup (CAN-G2).

In the 1999 Sky Classic Handicap (CAN-G3) he scored a third, though by rights he owns that race too, since he is a son of the great Sky Classic and holds the honor of being the only Canadian Horse of the Year to be sired by a Canadian Horse of the Year. A gregarious guy by nature, Thornfield especially enjoys the company of his fellow retirees at Old Friends.
