(foaled 1849), American harness racehorse (Standardbred) that was the ancestor of most present-day harness racers. The thrice inbred great-grandson of Messenger (foundation sire of the breed of Standardbreds), he was the son of Abdallah out of a crippled mare. His original owner sold him with his dam for $125 to a hired man, William Rysdyk, who eventually became wealthy from Hambletonian's stud fees.
