As previously mentioned, the breed that has the greatest diversity of ancestry is the crossbreed or cross-stock horse. These horses can trace their heritage back to both crosses and both crosses can still trace their ancestry back to their ancestral stock.
Where does the most diversity in racing come from?
Where does most racing come from in the United States?
According to the American Racing Horse Association, a racehorse could have more than one of these three origins. The oldest ancestry to the most popular racehorse types come from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. That means New York is very much a New England horse and those of you who reside there should be very interested in this history.
The next most common origin of a New England horse is England and Wales with some others also starting with this origin. Another area where many racehorses come from is northern, and northeastern and central United States.
In New Jersey, most of the breed origin comes largely from Jersey, but also from several other locations in New Jersey including Camden, Gloucester, Elizabeth and Trenton.
The next two most common types of origin in these areas are New York or Pennsylvania and Texas and Louisiana. There is one last origin that starts in California and in that case, it can be considered to have more to do with a crossbreed of the Arabian race horse known as the Javanese and the African mare known as the Dinka.
When you look at the percentages of ancestry for each of these origins, there is not much difference between the top three.
The only racehorse that is more diverse of origin than the second is the Dachshund (Dachshund being a type of the dog). The percentage of ancestry for this animal at the second most popular racehorse types comes from the French New World (French Brittany) with French stock, Irish stock, Scots stock and Welsh stock or other Irish stock.
The last crossbreed type of origin in most of these top three is the Arabian (from Arabian races) with some from American Stock (American Stock or AKC) stock.
Now that you have been made aware of the origin of the most popular races in the United States, you can begin to figure out how to win them if you want to.

The New England region has a tremendous diversity of origin for race horses because it contains the majority of the country’s New England stock. The
