it all depends on the size of the track theyre on (1/2 mile, mile, mile+1/4), the size of the horse on the track (some larger horses have a hard time racing on a half mile track, but are fine on a mile size track because of the size of the turns) the track surface, and the class of horse they are.
for example where i am, our trotters (putting class aside) typically trot an average mile in 2:00-2:02. but thats an average. some go faster some are slower. our pacers go an average of 1:58-2:00.
yet you can take these same horses to a better track and your trotter can go 1:59, and your pacer 1:56.
my pacing broodmare for her size (shes very large) they usually go about 1:58-1:59 on a half mile track. my mare has a record of 1:54:3 on a half mile track. she was extremely fast for her class of horse :)
