The Thoroughbred is one of the fastest animals in the game. Thoroughbreds can be played as two different skins; Bay and white. Although there is no statistical difference between them, the second one is noticeably more expensive.


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.

Life as a Thoroughbred

The Thoroughbred is the first non-DLC size 5 grazer it is possible to unlock. The Thoroughbred is on par with the fastest animals in the game, making it easier to flee from pursing predators despite the restrictions imposed on size 5 animals. They also have reasonable base Attack, and are able to break the defense of all but the hardiest foes. Thoroughbreds are among the easiest size 5 grazers to use, but will struggle once the larger, faster predators appear in the later years.

Unique Challenges:

Thoroughbreds as Prey

Thoroughbreds are less common in the early years, but between the mid to late years they are often seen in various territories, but usually either alone or in small numbers. They'll usually ignore smaller predators that shouldn't be able to clean kill them unless they are attacked first. They are worth a good amount of calories to a predator able to take them down, though doing so can prove difficult if they spot you and run before you can perform a clean kill, as they're hard to catch once they take off.

Note: Thoroughbreds become some of the most common herbivores around the dinosaur time, along with the slightly rarer Zebra.
