If he's never done it, you can't know that for sure.
My old barrel horse looked and acted like a slow WP horse most of the time. But you give him "the word" and get him near that arena and he knows it is GO time, you'd better hang on!
As most others have said, his pedgree speaks of speed and athletism. Conformation-wise, he is a bit front end heavy looking, but not horrible.
Yes, we can make suggestions on what this horse *may* be good for, but you'll never know until you start training him for it. You have to pick something that he enjoys doing.
