Early Book Favorite, 2007

I don't have a clue who should be favored in this year's Kentucky Derby future book, but the nod for next year must go to The Green Monkey. After all, $16 million is already bet on him. That's the amount agent Demi O'Byrne plopped down for his clients at Coolmore Stud when they purchased the son of Forestry at the Fasig-Tipton Select Two Year-Old in Training Sale in Miami last week, shattering all previous records.

This is a funny game. If a horse of mine gets loose in the morning and breezes an eighth of a mile in nine and change, I run for the veterinarian. A two year-old does it at a sale, and the big boys run for their checkbooks.
