The Rejoice/All Glory Breed Confusion

I'll start by confessing that until recently I was fuzzy on the difference between a Saddlebred and a Standardbred.  But when an anonymous commenter pointed out that I had gotten the breed wrong in my discussion of Breyer's All Glory, I was motivated to buckle down and do the research.

In teasing apart the elements of this situation, there are several points of confusion:

1.    Rejoice (the mold being used for All Glory) is a National Show Horse.
2.    William Shatner is a long-time fan of Saddlebred horses. 
3.    Shatner's horse All Glory is a Standardbred.
4.    Who is considered a Standardbred Road Horse (or "Roadster")
