Hanover County, Virginia, USA

America's first Thoroughbreds came to Hanover County in 1730, and here they are today.  The county was named to honor the British royal family; in turn, Virginia's Thoroughbreds became the royal family of the racing industry, with colonies of their own in Kentucky.  Anyone for overthrowing the British royals and renaming the county Thoroughbred County?  [2005]
