No, I don't think so. His front pasterns are rather long, and his backs appear to be upright. He is tied in at the knee badly, and his neck and head are disproportionate.
He has killer whithers, which is not so much a soundness issue as it is a saddle fit issue. He has toothpick legs, and looks a bit week through the sacroiliac area to me. He is also ewe necked, and his neck ties in very high. He is a bit post legged as well.

I'm actually not seeing the ewed neck, just racing muscles. Its amazing how different these horses will look once they've come down. I agree that he has very typical sharkfin TB withers (its hard to find an OTTB without them) but that shouldn't affect anything more than saddle fit. He IS very light boned though, so I'd also rule him out for more than very low level stuff. In some of the pics his legs look fairly straight, in others they seem all kinds of wonky. The shadows aren't doing him any favors. I actually don't mind his neck/head proportions though. Perfect? No, but he's no jughead either. And that is all cosmetic.

From these photos I would be more worried about him hanging his knees over a fence than breaking down from those legs. He is a Thoroughbred and a pretty good one from these photos. He does have a low humerous and a low point of shoulder and his shoulder is a little steep.. tho in the second photo lays back well. This is why photos are.. well what they are.

I would ride him over higher fences with boots on in front (a sling support boot like Professional's Choice). There is a bit of training to get from here to there, so be sure he is sound now.. PPE with xrays.
