Noble Threewitt dies at age 99

Horse trainer, humanitarian, and historian, nobody put together as long and meaningful a life as Noble Threewitt, who died this weekend at age 99.


Threewitt’s death was confirmed on Saturday by California Thoroughbred Trainers President John Sadler.


Born February 24, 1911, in the Southern Illinois agricultural town of Benton, Threewitt trained more than 2,000 winners after taking out his trainer's license at Agua Caliente, Mexico, in 1931. He saw the great Australian *Phar Lap race there in 1932.


The Methuselah of West Coast racing was at the opening of all five major tracks in California—Santa Anita Park, Hollywood Park, Del Mar, Bay Meadows Race Course, and Golden Gate Fields—as well as openers at Longacres and Emerald Downs in Washington.
