I have not seen any specific breeds that had trouble passing lower pulse 
criteria--only specific individuals.  IMO those individuals are likely not 
well suited to the sport anyway.  And yes, some of them are Arabs.  As a 
group, though, Arabs tend to have good recoveries, and Marge is absolutely 
right that Standardbreds tend to be selected (even if not by design) for 
great recoveries just by the way they are asked to perform--to be successful 
on the track, they must often trot several heats and be fit enough to do it.  
Without good cardiovascular capability, they wouldn't make it.  As a rule, I 
have observed great recoveries from them on rides.
