OK, so I went back and looked again...something about his hocks was bugging me. Looks like he may have lameness issues in the hocks as well. Maybe I'm just paranoid from working with racehorses with hock issues, but it looks like he may be somewhat boggy. This could be due to his being slighly camped out as it puts aditional strain on the tendons and on the hock as well. His hoof angle behind is sorta wonky as well, maybe due to his slightly upright hind pasterns. Not trying to bash the horse at all, but former racers are often riddled with lameness issues which may or may not become an issue in the future. You just have to be aware and willing to deal with them.
Good luck on the horse-hunt!
