The Green Monkey, the Forestry
colt who was sold for a record $16 million at a 2-year-old in training sale Feb. 28, arrived at trainer Todd Pletcher's barn from Belmont Park Saturday at about 8:30 a.m.
"Everything went smooth," Pletcher said. "He arrived here and got off the van with no problems. He has acted very professionally since coming to the barn."
Pletcher plans to breeze The Green Monkey some time in the next week. The colt is expected to make his debut during the Saratoga meet.
Michael Tabor, John Magnier, and Derrick Smith bought The Green Monkey, named for a golf course in Barbados, at the Fasig-Tipton Calder sale.
