He is a bit butt high and a bit downhill but I think his swaying back makes it look worse than it is. If you take a straight line and draw it from the highest point of his withers horizontally, there's not that much of a difference.

Considering that Sunday died in 2002 at 15 years old by the calendar (16 by TB official birthdays), and he only sired 11 crops of foals, the fact that he's still such a tremendous influence is stunning.
