A Monkey of his own

It took only one year for Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum to get over the bidding war for the Green Monkey. The Sheik who is laughing over the fact that the $16 million colt has yet to make it to the track, has released that he has a monkey of his own. His will be called the Godolphin Blue Monkey.The Moktoum monkey was acquired privately, and no details have been released. An anonymous member of the Darley family told the Bug Boys that the Godolphin Blue Monkey was acquired during a game of chance on the Ocean City boardwalk. The acquisition price is believed to be in the neighborhood of $2. The details of this story are still coming in. Stay tuned to the Bug Boys Blog for more information.

Interesting that you post the monkey today because the real monkey -- The Green Monkey -- posted a work yesterday at Belmont park, 38 3/5 for 3f. -- J.S.

Thank you.

Every time I go into a store that happens to sell stuffed animals, I now look for an unusually colored monkey.

One of these days I'm going to have to explain to somebody why I have a brightly colored stuffed monkey in my apartment... ;)
