Keep looking, if you genuinely want to go to 3rd level he will make it very hard for you.
As someone said, you don't need a warmblood for Dressage - yes they are helpful, if you want to be serious about the sport, but there are certainly some very nice TB's around. I had the most beautiful TB a few years ago, 7 year old straight ottb. He had stunning paces, actually swung his back, beautifully uphill, SUPER hocks and excellent knee action. He would have piaffed until the cows came home.
Unfortunately I had to have him euthanised due to injuries, but that is another story.
I am a Hanoverian girl through and through, but could not go past Hugo when I saw him for sale. I hope my rising 3 yr old Hano can match him.
Keep looking and definitely don't rule out the TB's.
