Gilbert G. Campbell, who owned Stonehedge Farm South near Williston, FL with his wife Marilyn, died Thursday at Lowell General Hospital in Massachusetts following a brief illness. He was 91. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his son Gary and daughter Susan.

Longtime Stonehedge Farm South manager, Larry King, said “He loved his horses and we inspected them all every time they came down, and he would say, 'I can't wait to see these run.' Marilyn is very involved and loves the horses and his wishes, which he had told me many times, was for it to keep right on going forward.”

Leading Florida breeder and former president of the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association, Campbell was a multiple graded stakes-winning owner with 461 wins and earnings of more than $13 million. His top homebreds include GSW Ivanavinalot, dam of two-time champion Songbird (Medaglia d'Oro).
