  1. Thoroughbred

    The Thoroughbred is a horse breed best known for its use in horse racing. Although the word thoroughbred is sometimes used to refer to any breed of purebred horse, it technically refers only to the Thoroughbred breed. Thoroughbreds are considered "hot-blooded" horses, known for their agility, speed and spirit. The Thoroughbred as it is known today was developed in 17th- and 18th-century England, when native mares were crossbred with imported Oriental stallions of Arabian, Barb, and Turkoman breeding. All modern Thoroughbreds can trace their pedigrees to three stallions originally imported into England in the 17th century and 18th century, and to a larger number of foundation mares of mostly English breeding. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the Thoroughbred breed spread throughout the world; they were imported into North America starting in 1730 and into Australia, Europe, Japan and South America during the 19th century. Millions of Thoroughbreds exist today, and more than 118,000 foals are registered each year worldwide. Thoroughbreds are used mainly for racing, but are also bred for other riding disciplines such as show jumping, combined training, dressage, polo, and fox hunting. They are also commonly crossbred to create new breeds or to improve existing ones, and have been influential in the creation of the Quarter Horse, Standardbred, Anglo-Arabian, and various warmblood breeds.

Examples of thoroughbred in a Sentence

  1. Londoner Haye:

    In the end, what 20,000 fans inside London's O2 Arena witnessed was me giving 100 percent effort but performing way below world level, for my fans, it must have been like going to support their favorite thoroughbred racehorse at the Grand National, only to see their stallion stumble out the gates like a sedated mule at the Donkey Derby.

  2. Tom Thompson:

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Here's the interesting conversation between the Police Officer and one Indian Engineer who had gone to the police station to report his missing wife.: 'Officer, looks like I have lost my wife. She had gone to the mall yesterday for shopping and has not come home yet.' Okay, what's her height?' 'I've never noticed...maybe 4 to 5 feet?' 'Is she thin?' 'Not thin...may be healthy' 'Color of her eyes?' 'Not sure....maybe black?' 'Color of her hair?' 'Not sure. It keeps on changing.' 'What was she wearing?' 'Maybe Saree or Jeans....or Salwar Kameez?' 'Was she driving a car?' 'Yes!' 'Good! Then tell me the details like plate number, make, model and color of your car.' 'Officer, she has taken my favorite The BMW M135i, which is the top-of-the-range version of the BMW 1 Series. Color is Steel Grey and Plate number SRI 420. My beautiful BMW...she is such a distinctively dynamic vehicle produced by the BMW M GmbH. She's positioned between the most powerful BMW series production models and thoroughbred BMW M vehicles with noticeably higher performance than the previously most powerful engines of any BMW series and have M-specific characteristics in terms of suspension setting and visual appearance, though without any limitations in terms of suitability for everyday use. The heart of my new BMW M135i is her straight six-cylinder gasoline engine with Twin Scroll Turbo technology, Valvetronic, Double VANOS and High Precision Injection. She delivers 235 kW/320 hp and a maximum torque of 450 Nm, power transfer being enabled by her six-speed manual transmission fitted as standard. I know that my BMW M135i sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.1 seconds (and when automatic, it's 4.9 seconds) to reach a top speed of 250 km/h – that's because that's the top limit permitted by the vehicle's electronic speed control system. Her average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle was found to be 8.0 liters/100 km, and the CO2 emissions level was 188 grams per kilometer. The exclusive power train also features a customized cooling system, M performance control and engine sound tuning, plus a newly developed six-speed manual transmission with dry sump lubrication. She also has a dynamic eight-speed automatic sports transmission with gearshift paddles integrated in the steering wheel included as an option. Please find her as soon as you can. I miss her so much.' ' Wow! That really helps. Your details are awesome, and your memory is absolutely amazing. Please stop crying. We'll search for your car right away, and find her asap.... and maybe we'll find your wife as well.' The End.
