Equine Obituary – More Of The Dollar




More of the Dollar, foaled June 2004, passed away Dec 2019. He was started in Kentucky by Mike Thomas and sold to the Bob Adcock Family as a two-year-old. He was placed in training with Charlie Green and began his long and successful show ring career. His first appearance at the Celebration was as a two-year-old with Charlie Green. Sam McLaughlin took over training duties in the fall of 2007 and remained as his trainer until 2010. As a four-year-old he made his second appearance at the Celebration, and then again as a five-year-old, both times under the direction of Sam McLaughlin. He was sold to the Louis Judd Family at the beginning of the 2010 show season as an Amateur Owned & Trained horse. 

Affectionately known as Mr. Dollar, he was shown in many states including: Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Mississippi, Kentucky and Tennessee. He was shown over 114 times and won over 50 blue ribbons, 16 reserves and the rest were 3rd, 4th, and 5th places. Louis Judd showed him at the Celebration in 2010 and received 5th place in the Owner-Amateur Specialty World Grand Championship and returned in 2014 to place 3rd in the Owner-Amateur Specialty World Grand Championship. He was a gifted horse and considered to be the perfect Amateur Owned and Trained mount. His personality was calm, trusting, and wanting to please. His beauty was commented on by everyone that saw him and he loved the attention and petting he got. His long flax mane with a multi-colored tail that reached the ground drew lots of attention.  He was so proud of himself and in the line-ups, he always looked around at the crowd with ears up enjoying himself. 

More of the Dollar was adored by his owner, Louis Judd, and will be greatly missed.
