He will most likely need a LOT of retraining in addition to down time after coming off the track. He would also need to be fully vetted, included x-rays and possible blood work. I really, really don't recommend OTTBs to any first time owners. Think carefully about what kind of "challenge" you want and how much you are able to take on. A horse that is trained with a good foundation of your chosen discipline, but who needs refinement and some finesse may be a better match.
Smart people listen. Not so smart people think they do not need to hear what others have to say.
