Rodney Jones spent more than a year compiling 'Bloodlines of Champion Thoroughbreds'.
Starting with the original three Arabian Stallions: The Byerley Turk (c.1680), The Darley Arabian (c.1700) and The Godolphin Arabian (c.1724). This intricate, detailed and colorful print traces the lineage of champion thoroughbreds throughout history in the major racing jurisdictions of Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Japan, Latin America, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States.
Documenting both male and female G1 winners worldwide, Rodney Jones' Bloodlines of Champion Thoroughbreds records 1,882 champions spanning 334 years to 2017, including the American champions Always Dreaming (winner of the 2017 Kentucky Derby), Classic Empire (the 2016 juvenile champion), Gun Runner (horse of the year 2017) and West Coast (champion 3 yr. old male 2017).
Also included are the 2017 European champions Churchill (IRE), winner of both the English and Irish 2000 Guineas; Winter (IRE), winner of both the English and Irish 1000 Guineas, both sired by Galileo (IRE); Enable (GB) Cartier Champion 3 yr. old filly (2017) and Cartier Horse of the year (2017) and Cracksman (GB), Cartier Champion 3 yr. old colt (2017).

The vast majority of champions are descendants of the Darley Arabian.
The progeny of Mr. Prospector and Northern Dancer (CAN) 1961 have become the dominant producers of Champions worldwide, with Northern Dancer being the most influential by some distance.
