Does a horse with a previous suspensory hind leg injury have potential to become an eventing horse?

Does a horse with a previous suspensory hind leg injury have potential to become an eventing horse?
Normally, no, not to any high level. The chances of re-injury is very high with suspensory ligaments. However, the level of work it can return to depends on the severity of the injury, how early it was caught and what was done to treat it.
