great story. It is interesting that he is still not easy to ride, though so trainable on the ground

In the book Joey is actually an Irish Draught Sport Horse or "Irish Sport Horse".

From the article:


“He’s a typical thoroughbred,” Lovgren said of Finder. “He gets really wound up; he’s not a good riding horse.

Wow what a great article! I didn't know the same horse also made an appearance in Seabiscuit!
