What is a Thoroughbred horse?

Every race has certain conditions of eligibility, and the Kentucky Derby is strictly for Thoroughbreds who are three years old. That’s why it’s the “chance of a lifetime in a lifetime of chance,” as the Dan Fogelberg song says. A horse has just one window of opportunity, and there’s no “next year” to try again.

Thoroughbreds have a foundation rooted in three main lines of pedigree origins. The Byerly Turk, Darley Arabian and Godolphin Barb. Europe imported the earliest Thoroughbreds to North America by way of Virginia around 1730.
