The galloper was passed fit by Racing NSW vets earlier on Monday, but the stable have decided that even though the horse is in good health, he has had too much of a restricted build up to contest Saturday’s $15 million event.
Racing.com’s Digital Editor Ryan Reynolds has tweeted that Tony McEvoy’s Dollar For Dollar will replace Farnan as the representative for Aquis Farm’s The Everest slot.
Dollar For Dollar will replace Farnan in The Everest. Story shortly @Racing

Dollar For Dollar has placed in his last two runs this preparation, behind Behemoth in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m), and behind Zoutori in the Gilgai Stakes (1200m).
Dollar For Dollar has been inserted as a $34 chance in The Everest.
