He won at black-type level – the 2019 George Moore Stakes – as well as the big stage of Magic Millions Day the same year.
While he was a high level and consistent galloper on the track, Forster says he is also an animal with a friendly nature.
“He did a marvellous job, he never really ran a bad race in his life,” Forster said.
“He was unlucky that he did not win more races, that was just because of the way his racing pattern was.
“He used to get back and charge to the line.
“He was genuine as well as being a kind horse, he was beautiful.”
Finding her former stable stars a nice life after they have run their last race is a key element of being a trainer these days, Forster believes.
“It is very important for these good old horses,” Forster said.
“This horse would be no good in a paddock, he would be wasted as he would get big and fat, he would get out of control.
“But, it is beautiful where he is going, it is going to be wonderful out there and he will be well looked after.”
Chapter And Verse was raced by a big syndicate, which included one of Forster's greatest supporters, former rails bookmaker Doug Forbes.
Forbes, at his own property, has taken on a few retired gallopers and is glad to see Chapter And Verse thriving in the months following his last career race.
“He was such a big loveable horse,” Forbes said.
“He will exceed at what he is doing in the next stage of his life.
“I like to see them go to a good home; it is a most important thing for them to be well-looked after following their racing career.”
Dreverman has worked in several roles within racing, including breaking in horses and riding track work, and explains that every horse she re-trains is unique and she needs to tailor her program to how the individual is progressing or where their strengths are.
Once Chapter And Verse – as well as any other horse who goes through the program – has completed their re-training process, Dreverman and Gollan will go to work in finding them the right home.
Dreverman jokes that the method is a bit like dating for humans, needing the match the horse with the correct people, who have great facilities, feed and understanding of what the specific horse needs to thrive.
She will often stay in contact with families who have taken on horses who have gone through her program to ensure the galloper is being well cared for.
“It is rewarding to find the right people for the individual horse,” Dreverman said.
Where Chapter And Verse ends up following his re-training process remains to be seen but Gollan has a few ideas.
“It would be fantastic if he could follow that through into a discipline outside of racing, or perhaps he could be an ambassador for the foundation and get him back to the track and lead out some of these old horses,” Gollan said.
“It would be great to give him another job, Kate will give him those skills, and it would be wonderful in a year or two he could be out there competing and winning ribbons, and really showing how versatile and athletic thoroughbreds can be.”
