Beautiful horse BTW ... have you had a vet, dentist, and/or a chiropractor look at her or had your saddle fitted properly? Those is the first things I would do before making a determination as to her future. If she is in pain, that would certainly account for behavior like that.
Next thing I would want to know is what kind of training she has had since her racing days. If she hasn't been transitioned properly from racing to another discipline, that could also account for her behavior.
As for her non development of her rear, it can be attributed to many things but after the above has been addressed, then I would concentrate on collection so that she is working off her rear rather then her front end. It is typical of exracehorses to be unbalanced.
EDIT, do you know the history of the horse? How old is she? Did her last owner have the same problems? Did you see her being ridden before buying her?
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.
