Smile I need help figuring out my ponys breed

I just got my pony I rescued at a auction sale in october, and I've been wondering what breed he is. I was told by a friend of the family who knows alot about horses and has worked on the race tracks, that my horse Spartan is a POA. I'm not so sure though Could someone help me out?

Whether he's purebred remains to be seen, but if he meets the height requirement, he may be able to be hardshipped in the POA club. Although they may require actual contrasting color and not just characteristics--I'm not sure. But I'd definitely call him a POA.

He's got the skin mottling and pink sclera, which are Appy traits. Looks like he's trying to roan a little, too, which is typical.
