Edward Plunket Taylor

Born Jan. 29,1901. Die May 14, 1989.
A Canadian, who was born into a wealthy family, Taylor graduated from Montreal's MxGill University in 1922 with a Bachelor of Science degree. First,he used a brewery business inherited from his grandfather which merged more than 20 other brewies into his corporation. This made Taylor's corporation became the biggest and the most successful industrial empire in the Canada.

He had been participated in WWII's effort: he was a volunteer executive in the government. Over the years, he had gained the nation's greatest controlling. Such as Canadian Food Products, Orange Crush, Standard Chemical...and many!

He also is the most remembered owner of Windfield farm, which is the biggest horse breeding site in the 20th century, produced Northern Dancer.e 20th century. By 1970, Taylor was the world’s leading horse breeder in terms of money won.e 20th century. In 1977 and 1983 he was named the winner of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association’s Eclipse Award as the leading thoroughbred breeder in North America.

Taylor had his passion on horse racing and breeding;He was not only working- hard on his family business, but also on the farm.

According to the most articles, his farm, the windfiled is still providing the highest quality sires to the Europe market.

Ummm...., breeding racing horse...COOL!! But the demand of racing horse may decrease year after year....

After reading this article, I realized that you don't have to have your first job on the things you love---like Taylor; He got his family business to take care, but he found his way to do despite his love of horse racing. Everybody must have the different way to embody their love of the thing they cherish of.
