Intro

The first Thoroughbred horse imported to the American colonies was Bulle Rock in 1730. From that point on the colonies began a love affair with horse racing and thoroughbred athletes.

Origins

Originally established during the 17th & 18th century in England, since then the Thoroughbred has been independently developed in several countries.
Upon their arrival in America during the 18th century the colonists quickly developed their own breeding programs. Importing English animals and breeding with existing local stock.
The first native American Thoroughbred to take the track by storm was Sir Archy who was eventually retired from racing for lack of opponents.
Thoroughbreds in the US have also been used to improve other breeds, such as the Standardbred, American Quarter Horses and the Morgan. The Cavalry also used Thoroughbred blood to improve their stock.
