How tall was the Thoroughbred race horse Barbaro?

How many hands high was he? I can't seem to find info on this. Please provide a link to your source, if possible.
The Wikipedia entry on Barbaro doesn't mention how tall he was.
Barbaro was not sent to a "glue factory," nor is he buried and "3 feet tall. " His owners had him cremated and are keeping the urn for the time being. I asked a simple question because I am doing research on the heights of Kentucky Derby winners and for some reason, a documented height is hard to find for this horse. I think it is very sad that some people responded with such disrespectful answers to a simple question.

16.2 hands

    I'm not sure of his actual height, but looking at a lot of the pictures of him and comparing him to backgrounds/people he looks like he is just over 16 hands.

    Around 15 hands. Age wise, a healthy horse can live into his 20s. One of the oldest I ever heard about was 28.

    Unless they buried him on his back with his legs sticking up i doubt if he is more than 3 feet tall right now. Isnt it time we stopped talking about this horse as if he was the saviour of horse racing and just let him rest.
