They must be talking about equus, the modern horse. Ancestors go back some 50 million years as you note. The modern horse isn’t found in rock older than the Pleistocene. At least it hasn’t been found in older rock, yet.

Yes, I checked the article and they specifically reference Equus. Still, 500,000 years isn’t 2 million.
