What breed is a Standardbred?

(Assuming this question contained a typo, it has been corrected from 'What is a stranded bred?' to 'What is a Standardbred?') Also known as the American Standardbred, this horse was originally developed in America from several different breeds including the Thoroughbred, the Hackney and the Morgan. It was bred specifically as a harness racing horse with 2 types, (the trotter and the pacer), however, the breed has also shown finesse in other events. Because of its athleticism, the Standardbred is commonly seen in hunter/jumper events as well as dressage. The name Standardbred comes from the 1800's because back then, the horse had to be able to trot a mile within the standard time of 2 minutes and 30 seconds in order to be registered as an American Standardbred. Today, they are able to trot even faster. The Standardbred closely resembles the Thoroughbred but is normally a little heavier and more muscled with slightly longer bodies than the Thoroughbred. The American Standardbred is not to be confused with the American Saddlebred, a different registered breed.
