I was always taught that 'hotblooded' referred to TBs, Arabs etc., 'coldbloods' were mostly drafts and 'warmblood' (when not used in the breed sense) is pretty much anything else.
When people say coldbloods they usually mean draft-types.
Lol. That is why I put the quarter horse there. I thought it would be funny.

I don't think that orlov trotters are coldblooded... their ancestors were arabians after all... But I don't really know that much about horses.
Many sites do say that the finnhorse is the fastest coldblooded horse (including wikipedia, lol), but some say it is just Europe's fastest. I'm not sure if it is just us finns trying to sell our horses or not. ;P http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finnhorse
And I think that at the moment the world record is held by a swedish horse, but that doesn't say anything. I want to know the breed, not a single horse that happens to be faster. Anyways, I might be wrong again.
Wikipedia's pictures look bad. D;
