The legendary Secretariat (Big Red) is a thoroughbred. And like every other thoroughbred, he has Arabian blood in its ancestry.
The history of the Thoroughbred began in about 1700 in England, with the importation of the three great Arabian stallions who would form the foundation for the breed. These horses would become the cornerstone of the English Thoroughbred, and the ancestors of the American Thoroughbred.
