I have done endurance on an OTTB, and my barn owner beat out many arabians to win several endurance rides on her mare. She is a bit of a miracle, she raced at 2, broke her front leg and was nearly euthanized on the track(only a determined owner stopped the injection), spent 6 months in a custom brace on strict stall rest, then a year out to pasture. My BO then got her, got her into shape, and kicked butt on several endurance competitions. Her filly is going to be my BO's new endurance mount next year, as she is retired.
Bo's sister also competes on an OTTB gelding and does well.
Bo also rode a OTTB gelding. He was at the same level as any arab, legs of steel, could go all day, pulsed down super fast and would drink from any where. Unfortunately he was crazy on steep trails, so he went on to be a jumper.
