The Cosmopolitan Maternal Heritage Of The Thoroughbred Racehorse Breed Shows A Significant Contribution From British And Irish Mares

The Cosmopolitan Maternal Heritage Of The Thoroughbred Racehorse Breed Shows A Significant Contribution From British And Irish Mares: Mitochondrial DNA from 1929 horses was examined to determine the origin of the Thoroughbred foundation mares. Some historical records suggest exclusive Arab or a significant importation of Oriental mares, but our findings suggest that Thoroughbred foundation mares had a cosmopolitan European heritage, with a far greater contribution from British and Irish native mares than previously thought.
