The Green Monkey Sires First Stakes Winner
The Green Monkey, the most expensive thoroughbred sold at public auction, was represented by his first stakes winner on Saturday when Kinz Funky Monkey captured the listed Manhattan Beach Stakes at Betfair Hollywood Park.
Trained by Peter Eurton for owner Always Believe, Inc., the 3-year-old filly won the six-furlong turf contest by a half-length over Judy in Disguise.
The Green Monkey, a nine-year-old son of Forestry, ran three times without winning for the Coolmore team. He was then retired and stands at Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds in Florida for a fee of $5,000.
