OTTB critique :)
Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds - New Price! River Mountain Road, 11 yo, 16.1 chst g

I'm always on the look out for a nice thoroughbred off the rack and something about this guy speaks to me. What do you guys think, a diamond in the rough? Or too old?

Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds - Gilt Edged 16.1, bay, 4y.o. G

Also, this guy has a very sweet face and nice look about him. I like his top line better and he seems nice to handle in his video.

any glaring faults I might be missing? Neither are perfect but I'm not looking for anything much more than a pleasure horse with local showing.

As for potential disciplines, I'm one for letting the horse choose, but something
in the English realm preferably hunters, jumpers or event.

Sorry I can't just post the photos, I'm using my iPad. Here's the link the board they're posted on, there are plenty on there at the moment!

I like the second one a ton better! He had nicer conformation and he is more pleasing to the eye, not to mention he is younger. I am worried about the "retiring early" thing though. There is usually a reason they are retired early.

the first one sounds like a sweetheart! but i think you should go with the second one. He is younger, fit, and has better conformation. but ride both and that will be the ultimate decision maker

I would keep looking, number 2 looks very straight through his hocks and his pasterns look to long to me.

The first guy looks long through his back and weak in his loins

My mare raced at Finger Lakes! Hmm, of those two, I like the second best, but not the back legs.

Wow... the farrier's work at Finger Lakes is a train wreck! :(

I like the second horse best out of the three. By far!
