The Godolphin Arabian (c. 1724 - 1753), also known as the Godolphin Barb, was an Arabian horse who was one of three stallions that were the founders of the modern Thoroughbred horse racing bloodstock (the other two are the Darley Arabian and the Byerley Turk).

There is no pedigree for the Godolphin Arabian available because one does not exist. This horse was bred in a desert country of the middle east in the 1700's. There are no records that exist for desert bred horses as bedouins did not keep written records as we do.Contrary to the answer provided, the Godolphin Arabian also did not start the Arabian breed. Arabians are one of the oldest breed of horse and had been around for hundreds of years before the Godolphin. The Godolphin DID contribute to the Thoroughbred breed as one of its three foundation sires along with the Darley Arabian (or Barb) and the Byerley Turk.King of the Wind, by Marguerite Henry is a good book that will give you a good history about the Godolphin Arabian. I highly recommend it.
