First woman horse racer got her start in...Thorncliffe Park!!

Found this interesting article the other day about a horse racing story that began in ...Thorncliffe Park
..the fight Williams put up on behalf of all women in the sport began long before that, defying even her husband's wishes against her being permitted to race to embark on a 21-year career, beginning with her first win in 1951 at Thorncliffe Park in Toronto and running through 1973, retiring as the winningest driver in North America.
If you didn't already know, Thorncliffe Park used to be a racetrack - one it seems that has historic significance!
