SANTA CLAUS (foaled in 1961) was a British-bred Irish trained race-horse and sire.
As a three year-old in 1964 the dark-coated bay stallion had his best year on the turf.
His most notable achievements were Winning the Irish 200 Guineas Stakes, as well as the Epsom and Irish Derbies.
These Victories (in part) earned SANTA CLAUS the 1964 British Horse Of The Year award.
