Group-performed star Dollar For Dollar has found his forever home with Jamie Kah.
The eight-year-old, who was well beaten in last Saturday's Group 1 Goodwood, was retired by connections on Tuesday, with Kah set to bring him to the Victorian property she shares with partner Clayton Douglas.
Leading jockey Kah has always had a soft spot for Dollar For Dollar, having guided him to six of his eight career wins.
Together they finished third in the 2019 Doomben 10,000 at the elite level. He ran second in the 2018 and 2020 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes and contested last year's $15 million Everest for trainers Tony and Calvin McEvoy.
"It's a really good outcome. That horse, he will go across to Jamie's and spend the next stage of his life with her," Tony McEvoy said.
"He's an easy horse to love. He's an attractive little character. Always been very spicy, fun and bloody good. He's a really good horse.
"Jamie has always been extremely fond of him. After his third or fourth start she said, 'I want this horse, I want to take him when he's finished'."
McEvoy said Dollar For Dollar had taken connections on an amazing ride through his 34-start career.
"The horse sent us a strong message that he's gone far enough," McEvoy said.
"He went to the elite level and missed very narrowly twice. Even though he hasn't won since 2018, I think it was $840,000 or something he'd won in the meantime.
"He took us to The Everest. So that's what people thought of him.
"It was a fantastic ride for us and we'd love to do it again with a horse of his class."
