Famous Horse Confo

So I've been thinking about this topic for quite some time now. I've read a lot of people/sites and things saying that quite a few famous, successful horses had less than ideal confo for their career. Such as Seabiscuit, and I've even heard of the same being said for Hickstead.

What are other famous horses that had less than ideal confo? Do you have any photos, confo critique for those horses? I think it would be really neat to see :)

Personally I don't like the little spindly legs on Impressive's massive body.

I know Seabiscuit had bad front legs. He was over at the knee and his front left leg bent out a bit.

As for Hickstead, he had a rather high neck set, steep shoulder and his front legs seemed... off. Maybe someone else can see exactly what I am seeing...

Seabiscuit definitely had less than ideal confo, I agree on that one. I didn't think Hickstead was all that badly put together, though....

Impressive (QH) had a little over bite.

I never realized quite how bad seabisquit's fronts were before, lol. And I'm not sure of the terminology, but Hickstead's cannons go... inwards, backwards? I think it might be 'over at the knee'? The angles just look wrong to me. And am I the only one who thinks his pasterns are a little long?
But I agree with equiniphile- He's not perfect, but he's not bad at all, to me. I was a big fan of him though, so I may be biased, lol.
