The name "Standardbred" was first used officially in 1879, because, to be registered, every Standardbred had to be able to trot a mile within the "standard" of two minutes and 30 seconds. Today, many Standardbreds race much faster than this original standard, with several pacing the mile within 1 min, 50 sec, and trotters are only a few seconds slower than pacers. Slightly different bloodlines are found in trotters than in pacers, though both can trace their heritage back to Hambletonian 10.

Dan Patch, one of the greatest pacing horses ever, set 14 world records, including the record for the mile by a harness horse, that stood for 32 years.
