That is always the problem with a grade horse (or one whose breeding is uncertain/unknown). I knew of a horse trader who disposed of a horse's papers because he was H/N and people were afraid of purchasing him.
At an auction I went to a few months back, there was a mare I was interested in. When I looked at her papers, she had Impressive in her background but had never been tested. I passed on the horse and her owner had no idea what I was talking about when I was concerned. Meanwhile when she came in the ring, the auctioneer read off her breeding but never mentioned the fact that she was untested.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
