US$16m Colt To Debut At Saratoga
US trainer Todd Pletcher "has been making encouraging noises after world-record colt The Green Monkey's latest piece of work on his return from injury" noted racingpost.co.uk. The Coolmore colt (still unraced after being bought for US$16 million last year as a 2YO) "breezed 4 furlongs in 49.59sec at Belmont" & Pletcher "is eyeing a debut at Saratoga". He told US Daily Racing Form that The Green Monkey is "much more forward & aggressive than he was last year" & "seems more enthusiastic & eager to work."
