The Thoroughbred breed can be traced to three foundation sires: the Byerly Turk, the Darley Arabian, and the Godolphin Arabian.  These Arabian stallions were brought to England at the end of 1600s and beginning of the 1700s by their owners and bred with native English mares.  The Arabians had with them stamina and speed while the native horses were strong resulting in the Thoroughbred.  Gaining from both side of it's heritage, it can run long distances with a sustained speed.  This brought the sport of horse racing up to a new level.  The English pass time of horse racing was adopted by the developing America and in 1730 the son of the Darley Arabian, Bulle Rock, arrived in Virginia and is remembered as the first Thoroughbred to reach America.  Since then many more were imported to and bred in America.  This horse grew to dominate the racetrack giving birth to well known and talented horses such as Man o'War, Seabiscuit, Ruffian, and Secretariat. 
The average height of a Thoroughbred is 16-16.2 hands, though they range from 14.2 to over 17 hands.  The coloring of a Thoroughbred is always solid, though white markings are sometimes found.  The most common colors are bay, chestnut, and brown but there also is grey, black, and roan.  A Thoroughbred generally has sloping shoulders, an elegantly refined head, clean legs, and muscular quarters.  Primarily bred for racing, they are used also for show jumping, dressage, and hunting.
