What do you think of my old horse?

I had to sell him a few months ago because of sadistic kids abusing him, and useless cops. Anyways, I'm trying to get a better eye for conformation. What do you think about him?

He is a 13 year old Thoroughbred gelding. He races for 2-4 years (not sure what was training, what was actual racing).

Green Broke
Shoulder angle is just a little bit on the steep side, though nice and big
Neck appears long and set high
Good depth through the girth
Stands a little under himself
Pasterns are quite long and sloping
Back is borderline long as well, though not terribly
Slightly roach-backed
Small hindquarters and quite posty through the back legs

I'd call him decent. Don't like his pasterns or front legs... but his upper body seems nice.
