Bit of a longshot here.

I think that my father spent some time at Thornton in 1957, but would love to find out more about the place. Does anyone know of anyone who might be able to help me?

I think that St Paddy was foaled at the stud in 1957. AS far as I am aware it is not now operating as a stud, but if anyone could help I would be eternally grateful.

Or does anyone have a relation who used to work there who may be able to help?

Googling "Thornton Stud" brought up that link.
If you also Google "Thornton Stud" and select Images you will see plenty of images of the stud.

"1884    Robert Vyner of Newby Hall, Ripon won the St.Leger with Lambkin. The Vyner horses (his brother Clare founded Thornton Stud) were mainly trained at Newmarket, although there were gallops and extensive stabling at Newby occupied by, amonst others, Billy Bullock, Billy Nevett and Steve Nesbitt in recent times."
