Owned and operated by William Woodward, Belair Stable was part of the famous "Belair Stud," one of the premier racing stables in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Belair Stable was home to Gallant Fox and Omaha, father and son horses that won the Triple Crown, to Nashua, who was "Horse of the Year" in 1955, as well as to many other well-known race horses. Until its closing in 1957, Belair was the oldest continually operated horse farm in the United States, where horses were raised for racing purposes. Its history extends over two hundred fifty years. The Stable has been restored and is open as a museum.
