Dollar For Dollar steps up to Group Three

The ultimate winner Dollar For Dollar keeps the cash rolling into his bank account landing his seventh win from just 12 starts at Sandown on Saturday, November 18.

Dollar For Dollar ($4.40) made it four wins in a row scoring a long neck win in the Group 3 $150,000 Chandler Macleod Recruitment Stakes (1500m) beating Hellova Street ($6) with Moss ‘n’ Dale ($3 fav), three-quarters of a length away third.

The five-year-old, beautifully ridden by Jamie Kah, sat on the pace of the leader Hellova Street, before proving too strong over the final 200 metres.

“I love this horse, he is just such a champion,” Kah said.

“He can be a bit cheeky at times, but he is so relaxed in his races. When I asked him to go he quickly moved up the leader and even though it fought back, he found that little bit more.”

Kah has ridden Dollar For Dollar in all of his last four victories and rates the Group 3 win as the biggest of her career.

"Because it's him, it's number one," Kah said.

"I've won a Group Three before, but that was unbelievable.

"I just love this horse. I love how much heart he has. He's probably got enough talent to win a race like this, but he's got a heart to win a Group One."

Trainer Tony McEvoy said Dollar For Dollar had done his job this preparation.

“He’s won his way through to Group class,” McEvoy said, “he is just such a good horse. That was a solid race today and he's taken another step up.

“They (Dollar For Dollar and Jamie Kah) make such a good couple.

“I will send him for a short break now. He can return home to Angaston then head up to the farm at Murbko for a short break before his next campaign.”

McEvoy said he would set Dollar For Dollar for the Listed Chester Manifold Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on Saturday, January 13.
