OTTB shopping - older maiden?

I’ve been thinking about calling about a horse listed through CANTER, and noticed he’s run something like 30 times and never won. He looks like he was an expensive 2 year old, imported from Europe, then maybe didn’t race until he was 4, then gradually dropped down over a few years. I could understand hoping he’d eventually get there. Is there anything I should be worried or asking about here? I have no upper level plans but am hoping for long term soundness.

Thank you!

IMO, if he raced 30 times, I’d say he was long term sound. I would vet him not expecting to see something immediate but something that might need some long term care at some point.

Most of our US raced horses never start that often. I assume he’s a gelding.
