Mohaymen Poised for Holy Bull Season Debut

Unbeaten colt looks to continue streak

Shadwell hopes to see Mohaymen  remain a major player on the Road to the Kentucky Derby (gr. I) when he makes his season debut in the Jan. 30 Holy Bull Stakes (gr. II) at Gulfstream Park.

The Tapit  colt, who strung together a debut maiden victory with scores in the Nashua and Remsen (both gr. II) stakes, drew post 2 of 6 for the 1 1/16-mile test and will have regular rider Junior Alvarado in the irons. 

Mohaymen has stretched out successfully from six furlongs to 1 1/8 miles. The Remsen showed his ability to settle off the pace and take dirt along with the tenacity to split a narrow opening between horses.

"He's pretty seasoned for only starting three times," trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said. "We know he can handle most things thrown at him at this stage."

In preparation for the Holy Bull, Mohaymen worked a bullet five furlongs in :59 2/5  Jan. 21 at Palm Meadows, fastest of 10 at the distance.

His opponents include grade I winner Greenpointcrusader , and Conquest Big E, winner of two starts from four.
