Trot Racing?

I know that there is harness racing, with the horse trotting while pulling a cart, but are there actually trot races with a rider, just like gallop racing, but at a trot?

This just popped into my head and I couldn't stop wondering about it....

Moni Maker! Notice how the mare smooths out once she hits racing speed.
