I too have always been told that TB's mature faster physically, and it is why they are raced so young. But with everything else, I would think it really just depends on the horse.
As for a 14year old OTTB, saying that he is sound, like everyone else has said, he should have a good amount of years left in him! I leased an old TB a while back, he was 21, and he was as sound as could be, and loved to jump
