Smarty Jones' Trainer, John Servis

John Servis, trainer of champion thoroughbred Smarty Jones, says the horse's rambunctious attitude and sheer speed set him apart from other horses he's trained.

He calls the animal -- which he is preparing for a possible Triple Crown win Saturday at the Belmont Stakes -- the Muhammad Ali of the horse world. Servis speaks with NPR's Steve Inskeep.
