Biography: 

Glen Brown was born in New Liskeard, Ontario in 1933. He received Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Doctor of Veterinary Surgery degrees from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1957. Upon graduation he became the resident veterinarian and farm manager at Peter Pan Farm, Washington, Pennsylvania. Brown returned to Canada in 1958 to serve as farm manager and veterinarian for the fledgling ABC Farms established by Elgin and Ted Armstrong in Brampton, Ontario. Brown is president and general manager of Armstrong Brothers in Inglewood, north of Brampton, Ontario, where he directs a world-class facility that, since 1965, has ranked among the seven leading money-winning Standardbred breeders in North America. In addition to his responsibilities with Armstrong Brothers, he owns Glendale Farms. In 1981 his horse Fan Hanover p,4,T1:50.4 became the only filly to win the Little Brown Jug. That same year she was voted Harness Horse of the Year. Dr. Brown has held and continues to hold principal roles in many Standardbred organizations, including the Ontario Racing Commission, the Canadian Standardbred Horse Society, the Ontario Harness Horsemen's Association and the Canadian Trotting Association. A director of the Hambletonian Society, Brown is also connected with the Kentucky Standardbred Horse Sales Co. and the Ontario Jockey Club in a leadership capacity.
