History of the Standardbred Horse

The name ‘Standardbred Horse  originates to the time when horses were registered in Wallace’s American Trotting Register, first published in 1871, if they could meet certain speeds, such as trotting a mile in two and a half minutes. This was the ‘standard’ and so the term Standardbred means they are progeny of horses that have, at one point in their lineage, met that time/distance minimum standard.

The trotting registry was started due to a failure of thoroughbred people to accept the style of the American Stud Book set up by John Wallace. This led to the formation of the Standardbred horse breed.

Standardbred Horse  can trace their bloodlines to a grey Thoroughbred foaled in the UK in 1780 named Messenger. This stallion was imported to the United States in 1788, siring a number of champion flat racing horses. His great-grandson, Hambletonian, born in 1849, is now considered to be the foundation sire of the Standardbred breed.

Hambletonian (1849–76), was one of the best Thoroughbred racehorses to have ever lived, having won all of his race starts, except one. His victories included two Doncaster Cups in the late 1790s and the St. Leger Stakes at Doncaster in 1795. One year later, at York, Hambletonian lost his only race to the Kentucky Derby winner, Spread Eagle, after running off the course.

Standardbred Horse  are either ‘pacing bred’ or ‘trotting bred’ and for racing purposes the type of breeding dictates whether the Standardbred will be a trotter or pacer, however, there have been exceptions to this rule. The majority of Standardbreds in Western Canada are ‘pacing bred’ or what is generally referred to as Pacers. Eastern Canada tends to have more Trotters. In 1879, the National Association of Trotting Horse Breeders established standards to decide which horses would be allowed into the Trotting Register. One of the rules stated that a stallion was required to trot a mile in 2:30 or faster (or 2:35 pulling a cart) which led to the term Standardbred. Hambletonian’s progeny were the first to meet the regulations of this new breed.

What is Standardbred HORSE Racing?

Standardbred racing is horseracing with Standardbred horses and at a prescribed gait. Here in Canada the term Standardbred Racing means ‘harness racing’ and that’s generally done with trotters pulling a two-wheeled cart called a sulky which is piloted by a driver. In other parts of the world such as Europe and less frequently in Australia and New Zealand, there are Standardbred Races with jockeys riding on saddled trotters.

How fast is a Standardbred HORSE racehorse?

48.3 km/hr is how fast the legendary trotter Lee Axworth was going to complete a mile-long course in one minute and fifty eight seconds. The American Museum of Natural History website relates how Lee Axworthy was the first horse in history to trot a mile (1.6 kilometers) in less than two minutes. That means he had an average speed of just over 48 km/hr or about 30 miles per hour. An ordinary horse gallops at about the same speed.

How long do Standardbreds HORSE live?

Twenty five years is average lifespan for a domesticated horse in Canada, but many Standardbred horses live for more than thirty years and some even longer depending on their level of care and exercise. In fact, extreme old age can be hard to verify in Standardbred horses, and if livestock doesn’t have any identifying paperwork, or has changed owners a few times, a horse’s age can sometimes be just anyone’s guess.
