In Ireland, Thoroughbred's are both.
When buying TB's for general work, you know, hacking, jumping etc, no body wants them as they are generally off the track, and stone mad, so you have to sell them for 450 euro, or so.
But Thoroughbred's at the sales, particularly in Tattersalls, and FairyHouse, cost a phenomenal amount. Especially National Hunt horses. They would fetch upwards of 175,000 Euros each.
