How is this horse's conformation?

I looked up "most expensive horse' and this is what came up. How is his conformation ? I'm just curious about it.

I'm no conformation guru, but he looks like he's built downhill to me...

Looks like a TB or a hunter type QH. Built very well, but I am not fond of his back. It seems he has high withers and his back is long. Everything else seems great. Wonderful angles on his legs and shoulders/croup. Could use a longer neck but not too bad. Ties in pretty well. Nice muscling.

I'm not a fan. He looks like a race-bred TB. Light on bone, over at the knee, slightly wasp-waisted, he seems a bit posty through the hocks, hocks are set high, low stifle/long hip, high withers, short neck that ties in high on his chest, he's downhill, and he looks sway-backed. I've seen much better conformation on grade horses. Heck, my gelding has better conformation, IMO.

What is "wasp-waisted"? I've never heard of it, but then again, I know nothing about conformation

See the way his waist (belly) goes up and is more narrow as it approaches his flank? That's wasp-waisted. There's another name for it, but I can't remember it.

Forgot to add to my list that he's seriously tied in behind the knee, too.

I think the other name is herring gut.
