Dan Patch (April 29, 1896 - July 11, 1916) was the outstanding pacer of his day. Dan Patch broke world speed records at least 14 times in the early 1900s, finally setting the world's record for the fastest mile by a harness horse (1m:55s) during a time trial in 1906, a record that stood unmatched for 32 years.

Dan Patch was portrayed in the Disney movie So Dear to My Heart.
