When it comes to expensive animals we must mention the Kentucky Bred Derby Horse, a beautiful animal, with an amazing history and incredible genes. It is the descendent of two Kentucky Bred Derby winners and it is considered the most expensive horse ever sold.In 2006 it was sold for $16 million at a public auction and after that it began racing for its new owners. Soon, it received the name “The Green Monkey” and ever since, the horse competed using this new nickname.
Unfortunately The Green Monkey never won any major races and after only two years, in 2008, it was retired. It never had the chance to race in the Kentucky Derby. Even if his career as a race horse was not a successful one, The Kentucky Bred Derby – Green Monkey is still one of the most appreciated horses in the world, not only because of his price, which has remained legendary among horse lovers, but also because it has a magnificent aspect, it is fast and gracious and it has the genes of two champions. Its owners appreciated The Green Monkey so much that he is still in their stables somewhere, enjoying the luxurious life.
