Pleasant "B" film about taming wild horse- what does SAND mean?

This is a pleasant B programmer from Fox about a trained horse escaped to the wild and the owner's attempts to re-tame him. It's pleasant enough for adolescent children (except for a brutal scene where the horse actually kills another horse) but dull for adults. The Color Cinematography earned an Oscar nom - it was pleasant enough but like most Color Cinematography noms in the forties - it was not for achievement in lighting, composition or camera movement, but simply for photographing gorgeous locations. It's the Colorado scenery here that's the star - plains, mountains and enormous skies full of white scudding clouds. The excellent and varied score by Daniele Amfitheatrof was ignored by the Academy but deserved a nom far more than did the Cinematography - it was the high point of the film.

This is an okay horse story, pleasant and passes the time. Will someone tell me what the title means though? There is no horse and no character named "Sand" in the film.
