Horse sold for $16 million. Here is the pedigree: The Green Monkey Horse Pedigree
This horse is pure race horse. The sire line includes close up greats such as Storm Cat and Pleasant Colony. The dam line includes Unbridled. He is line bred on Dr. Fager and In Reality and way back.. Bold Ruler.
His bone is good, he is a bit long in the back but this is his 2 year old photo... and for a 2 year old he is breath taking. He is actually built level.. maybe a tiny bit up hill (root of neck to point of buttock). He has good rear end muscling and large hocks.. and good angles to his shoulder and his legs, including pasterns. Nothing about this Thoroughbred is unsubstantial INCLUDING his bloodlines.
His back is a bit long and his peak of rum a bit far back, but this horse looks like a total package and I can see why he brought that price.. and he was born in 2004 so in 2006 we were at the height of economic prosperity.
Sadly he started only 3 times with no wins, no places and 1 show with career earnings just over $10k.
This goes to show you that of all the Thoroughbreds born out there, only 3% are winners and of that number only something like a half percent are Stakes and Allowance winners.
This horse has everything to be a runner.. including fast times in training and from conformation to breeding.. He was retired in 2008 and was supposed to enter stud in 2009.
