Here are 3 paintings of 3 famous horses - who are they? and what links them?





Answer Hidden Below.

Horse A is the Byerly Turk
Horse B is the Darley Arabian
Horse C is the Godolphin Barb

All three horses were brought to England in the early 18th century.
All thoroughbred horses in the world are descended from one of these three.
Although 174 sires are mentioned in the first General Stud Book, these are the only three whose descent has remained intact.
