The Minto Group’s site on Simcoe St. on the city’s northern edge sits on what was part of Windfields Farm, E.P. Taylor’s storied racehorse breeding operation and home to the legendary Northern Dancer and scores of other winners.
Northern Dancer won the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Queen’s Plate in 1964 (the Triple Crown) and went on to become a prolific sire. He and other noteworthy Windfields’ horses are buried on the farm across the street from Kingmeadow.
Minto named the development Kingmeadow in honour of the property’s rich past.
“The site has an obvious history and legacy associated with Canadian horse racing,” explains Vince Santino, Minto vice president of development. “By calling it Kingmeadow, we are drawing the parallel to the sport of kings, with a reference back to its horse racing roots.
The amount of green space it will have, he says, “is more than most developments in and around the area. This will be important with first-time buyers and young families who are our target buyers.”
