Best Answer

The genus and species for Thoroughbred is the same for all modern horses, Equus Caballus.
Some sites consider the breed to be a subspecies, which would make the Thoroughbred: Equus Caballus thoroughbred. Whether or not this is in common use the distinction is of somewhat limited value, since this type of "subspeciation" is artificially created.
