Someone decided that it'd be best if he retired from the race

$6 million is a really low estimate for the stud value of a TC contender, it's also not a great consolation prize.

The stud fee for a TC contender averages $100,000-$150,000, bred 30-40 times a year, over say 25 years of fertility, $75,000,000 in total not taking into account declining value. The stud fee for a TC winner could hit $500,000 if he's proven to produce high quality foals. Secretariats stud fees total around $114,000,000 even though he died young (19), and had a streak of unsuccessful foals that hurt the value of his sperm (Canadian Bound (Secretariat x Charming Alibi) sold for $1,500,000 and was a worthless failure).
