For the Red Dead Redemption variant, see American Standardbred.

The American Standardbred is a Horse breed in Red Dead Redemption 2. They tend to have higher speed, moderate acceleration and lower health and stamina.


American Standardbreds are race horses, identified by their agile frame, powerful limbs and healthy coat. Both Black and Buckskin coats are found in the wild. A Palomino Dapple and a unique Silver Tail Buckskin can also be purchased. This breed handles well, is easy to train, but can be frightened by loud noises. They are healthy, and their average Stamina allows them to maintain a fast pace for a long time.
