You will probably get many variations of what people see in terms of conformation, as some might not see what others do- or some predict a fault from the pictures we have. The only real sign is to see them in person and have a knowledgable eye there with you to point things out. Buying a future prospect is a big step and you defiantly want a more 'educated' eye in that aspect to be with you in that step. I personally don't think Street Rocket is glaringly downhill, as much as Swiss Game is. I do agree the pasterns are long- but then again, that's a common trait in TB's and will be hard to weed out from prospects. However, that was my take on their faults.
I hope you find a good horse, if you do end up buying (:
