A "standard" is not a standard unless it has set dimensions that can be compared from arena to arena.
The standard pattern accepted by the WPRA is:
90 feet between barrel 1 and 2
105 feet between barrel 1 and 3 and also between barrel 2 and 3
60 feet from the plane of barrel 1 and 2, to the timer
20 feet from any barrel to the arena fence
You can see this diagram:
THAT is a standard pattern.
Any other pattern at any other rodeo is not "standard" because the pattern is made based on the arena size. Most arenas are not large enough to fit a standard pattern in it, so most arenas have smaller patterns.
So you really can't compare 2 runs to one another unless they were both run on the standard WPRA pattern, because the arena size may be different.
As buckoff stated, the world record on a standard pattern is a 16.643
