How old do thoroughbreds get?

Hi, I have a thouroubred horse mixed with kathiawari (an Indian breed). When he was younger he had something like a stroke. But he recovered well. He is still a extra scared and has a bit lame side. But he is not in pain or
Anything. He was never raced, I think he only did some dressage or jumping, before the acsedent. Now I just go on easy rides with him and do some work inside. Now he is 19 years old, how old do you think he would get?
Thanks
:)

It really depends on how he's taken care of for the rest of his life & what his health is like. He could live 'till he's 40, there really isn't a way to tell for sure.

A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.

Average is between 25-30 years but like previously said a well cared for horse can get as old as 40
