Godolphin Arabian

The Godolphin Arabian (1724 - 1754), also known as the Godolphin Barb, was one of three horses which were the founders of the modern thoroughbred horse racing broodstock. The Godolphin Arabian was born in Yemen. He was a gift to the then King Louis XV of France; he was subsequently purchased by an Englishman named Edward Coke who sold him to the Earl of Godolphin.
