The last of the original members that published “The Blood-Horse” was Thomas Piatt; A charter member in 1916, former VP of the old Thoroughbred Horse Association, and director of American Thoroughbred Breeders Association. He was also the founding member of the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association.

1916 was the first Kentucky Thoroughbred Horse Association Bulletin posted. Volume 1, Number 1 was published August 1, 1916 by the Kentucky Thoroughbred Horse Association to serve a small community of breeders. The Bulletin was renamed “The Blood-Horse” and taken to a weekly frequency in 1929 and expanded to serve a global audience. The first issue of the public “The Blood-Horse” was published May 11, 1929 and held Blue Larkspur as the cover image.


The similarly titled, Australian Bloodhorse Review is unaffiliated.

For the new millennium, Blood-Horse magazine compiled a Blood-Horse magazine List of the Top 100 U.S. Racehorses of the 20th Century which was published in book form.

The magazine won acclaim for its exclusive report indicating that 1986 Kentucky Derby winner Ferdinand had been slaughtered by his owners overseas after a marginal stud career. The news resulted in increased efforts to save retired racehorses.

Based in Lexington, Kentucky, the publication's media kit states that the magazine "coverage includes race reporting, comprehensive analysis, events, trends, debate, farm management, pedigrees, people, profiles, medication issues, investigative reports, and breeding news and information, and anything newsworthy and important to the racing and breeding industry."[4] ESPN has called The Blood-Horse the thoroughbred industry's most-respected trade publication.[5]
