Yes I know that, I'm a huge horse racing and Thoroughbred geek.
I'm just saying that he "technically" doesn't because the Quarter Horse is considered a breed of it's own now. Also most people consider Akhal tekes to be the descendants of the same breed of horse that the Byerly Turk was, which was of course one of founders of the Thoroughbred. Some also say that some Turkish mares were brought over to England during that same time to create the TB. But all is speculation, at least as far as I know.
