Not really. Horses are not even physically mature until 5 or 6. They can then maintain their physical condition for several more years. Some of the best show jumpers are 10 or so.

It's just that in racing the good ones are retired young and few of the others can remain sound from the stress of racing for many years. Racing may accelerate the aging process, so yes, in some sense a 6YO race horse may be considered a bit past his prime. Apparently, Limousine Liberal has retained his form at 6 as a normal horse would.
