Green Light Go (h, 5, Hard Spun–Light Green, by Pleasantly Perfect), winner of the 2019 GII Saratoga Special S. and runner-up in that term's GI Champagne S., was euthanized after breaking the sesamoid bone in his right foreleg during a workout Friday morning over the Belmont Park training track, according to Daily Racing Form's David Grening.

“It looked like he was just cruising,” trainer Jimmy Jerkens told DRF.

The Stronach Stables runner was preparing for a start May 7 in the GIII Westchester S. at Belmont Park following a fourth-place effort behind Speaker's Corner (Street Sense) in the GI Carter H. Apr. 9. The narrow 2021 GIII Fall Highweight H. runner-up entered that contest riding a two-race winning streak, including the Stymie S. Feb. 26.

Green Light Go, bred in Kentucky by Adena Springs, posted a record of 14-5-3-1 and $545,102 in lifetime earnings.
