King is correct, but the TB thing does play a factor, and I am slightly inaccurate with my question.
Foundation horses are determined by the percentage of foundation QH in his/her pedigree. Horses range on their percentage depending on how much foundation they have in them. Any horse born before 1940 is automatically considered 100% Foundation. TBs, on the other hand automatically qualify as 0% foundation. Once you have added up the percentage of foundation is in a horses ancestrial blood, you divide that number by the number of foundation horses in its pedigree. That determines Foundation eligibility. King is one of (and the most popular bloodline) for registerable Foundation Quarter Horses.
