This is almost certainly a 1930's AR model. See:

Could, but unlikely, be a Model P or GP, or D, but there are too many subtle differences. See:

It is most definitely NOT a Model AR, GP, or P (which is a minor variation of the GP). This tractor is without a doubt a John Deere Model D, probably an early 1930's model. The distinctive features of the D are many and not subtle. The clutch cover on the belt pulley, the spark plug location on top of the engine block, steering shaft support and many other features indicate it is without doubt a Model D. It is however missing the sheet metal hood which covered the rear part of the radiator and the fuel tank.

If is was an AR, the spark plugs would be located on the side of the engine block, and not visible in this picture.

Yep!!! This is an unstyled early '30s Model D, My Grandfather had a D just like this one and it was the first tractor as well as the first vehicle that I learned to drive, I have lots of fond memories of being behind the wheel of that tractor!!! Plowing, Cultivating, Mowing, Hauling wagonloads of hay and corn, And other times just driving it around the property for fun.

This scene was the reenactment of Red Pollard's leg injury that occurred when he was thrown by Modern Youth; a young colt during a training session on the morning the 23rd June 1938.

In reality, George Woolf took over as Seabiscuit's jockey following Red Pollard's chest injury that occurred after falling off Fair Knightness; another horse owned by Howard during a race on the morning of the 19th February 1938.
