$16 Million Horse
The Green Monkey was the most expensive thoroughbred race horse ever sold at public auction. I was at the 2006 fasig-tipton select two year old sale and managed to capture this amazing video as he went through the ring and two bidders kept adding $1 Million onto the price. Follow along and enjoy the action, it’s quite amazing.I really didn’t understand the hype surrounding this horse because there just wasn’t enough horse physically and i still believe Lion Heart and Favorite Trick had better 1/8 mile drills. The Green Monkey later raced and was a failure on the track never even winning a race. He was retired early and currently stands at stud for $5,000.
