Description

Conformation photograph of the American Thoroughbred Miss Woodford.

Miss Woodford, foaled in 1880 and bred by Col. Ezekiel Clay and Col. Catesby Woodford near Paris, Kentucky, is considered one of the top horses of the 19th century. With 48 starts and a 37-7-2 record, Miss Woodford surpassed $118,000 in earnings over her five-year career in the early 1880s.

Although owned by Mike and Phil Dwyer for the majority of her racing career, she was sold to James Ben Ali Haggin after her final race. She died in 1899 at Elmendorf Farm in Lexington, Kentucky.
