    He's dominant white, not sabino like he's listed as. He's a grandson of Puchingui, who was a very loud colored horse and many of his descendants have inherited it. There are a handful of dominant white TBs that have ended up solid white.

    I'm also not sure why they still have all of Sato's foals listed as sabino. I want to say they said there wasn't a DW test available or something although UC Davis does have a test for the mutation of DW that Puchilingui carried.

    Can someone explain to me how this horse is a registered thoroughbred? Wouldn't you have to cross breed to get that color?

    This particular colour is caused by a mutation on the KIT locus. The KIT locus is one of the less "stable" loci, which has many different mutations (at least 11 DW mutations, tobiano, roan, at least 2 sabino, and maybe rabicano is there too, so possibly around 20 mutations). So the colour occurred by mutation at some point in the horse's family tree. I can't find the paper on dominant white, but the Puchilingui line of TBs has definitely got dominant white, and I presume that he (Puchi) is the case zero, although I am basing that assumption on nothing except that the line is named after him.
