Eventing prospect?

I am looking an OTTB to retrain as an eventer and pony club mount. So here is a 4yr old Bay TB Gelding 16hh, nice temperament, good nature, 100% sound. Has been raced, just not cut out for the job.
Here is his pedigree:Owyhee Horse Pedigree
Here are some confo pics:

I like him,only thing is that I don't know about his left front. It looks like it turns in a bit, but it looks like he is standing funny in the first place and that his feet are long.... So tell me what you think

Something kinda weirds me out about his hind legs in the fetlock/pastern... Maybe it's just a bad trimming job added to the fact that his feet are long?

He's a cutie pie though! =)

I noticed that his feet were long right off the bat so I was wondering that too....

He has long upright pasterns that with poor shoeing which is common with horses on the track. The left front foot does turn in which I don't think can be corrected with farrier work. Conformation on the top looks nice. If he has a good disposition and is willing he would probably make a nice lower level pony club horse which at least in my area are in high demand. The long pasterns may not be able to hold up to the demand of upper levels. Does the he paddle with that left front when he trots?

If you look at the front left you'll notice the hoof doesnt just turn the, the whole leg is actually crooked. That horse with that leg will def not hold up for eventing, it will cause for quite of bit of lameness in the end. The forearm is crooked connecting to the knee and then from the knee down it goes crooked the completely opposite way. If I were you I would pass
