Horses are individuals, and you can't judge them all on the breed.
My current TB is 5yrs old, extremely quiet, I have to ride with a whip and use a lot of leg in the canter. His race records show he won $35k, which is not a lot.
My previous TB was 9 yrs old and a headcase, extremely hot and not particularily safe to ride. She won $9k! Go figure!
So my quiet horse is younger, off the track only a few months, and won more money. My crazy horse was older, years off the track and won hardly anything. So their racing history means nothing, it is down to the individual personality and temperment of the horse.
