Veteran steeplechase and flat trainer, Thomas H. Voss, died at his home in Monkton, Md. Tuesday, Jan. 21. He was 63.

Originally an amateur rider, Voss began training in 1973 and trained his first steeplechase winner in 1975 when Aruhapy won at My Lady's Manor. Voss won five National Steeplechase championships as leading trainer and campaigned steeplechase champion Slip Away in 2010. Voss won back-to-back Maryland Hunt Cups with Florida Law and Welter Weight in 1998-99 and won the Grade 1 American Grand National at Far Hills, N.J., with Quel Senor in 2001 and Your Sum Man in 2009.

Voss campaigned John's Call to win the Grade 1 Sword Dancer at Saratoga in 2000, a feat that tied John Henry as the oldest Grade 1 winner at age 9.  The $1.5 million earner also won the Turf Classic that year before finishing third behind Kalanisi in the Breeders' Cup Turf. Voss also campaigned flat stakes winners Dreadnaught, Always First and Royal Bench.

Voss' grandfather, Edward Voss, moved to Maryland in the late 1930s, purchasing Atlanta Hall Farm, where Voss lived. Atlanta Hall is the site of the annual Elkridge-Harford Point-to-Point. Tom Voss' great uncle, Franklin Voss, was a prominent sporting artist. Tom Voss was joint master of the Elkridge-Harford Hunt.

Voss is survived by his mother, Mrs. Edward S. Voss, wife Mimi, son Sam Voss, daughter Elizabeth Murray, stepson Matthew McKnight and grandchildren.

A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, Jan. 27 at St. James Episcopal Church at 3100 Monkton Rd. in Monkton.
