Mohaymen, the 2 year old half brother to BC Juvenile winner New Year's Day, who sold for $2.2 Million at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale, posted his first lifetime workout today at Belmont Park, going 3F in 38.06. Looks like he will make his debut late in the Saratoga meet.

Perhaps the Beverly D next?
If he wouldn't of bolted last race, he would be a top contender for the classic.
WOW!!!! Force the pass!!! Dominates the Belmont Derby. What a day for sire Speightstown!! Wins with Speightster and now Force the Pass!!!
Owner Anthony Oppenheimer told AtTheRaces.com yesterday after Golden Horn's won the Coral-Eclipse: "If everything's good with him we'll go to Ascot for the G1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes next." "If he should miss the King George for any reason then he would go to York for the G1 Juddmonte International Stakes, but he won't do both races as that would be gilding the lily." Oppenheimer also said the chances of Golden Horn taking in one of the major international G1 races at the end of the year is unlikely. "He's not entered in the Arc, and if it looked like being soft or heavy ground at Longchamp we wouldn't supplement him either," A trip to the states for the Breeders Cup Turf looks even more unlikely with the owner adding, "John Gosden is not enthusiastic about the Breeders Cup and I agree with him. It's not on the menu at the moment." Oppenheimer ended the interview by suggesting it's very likely that Golden Horn will be retired at the end of this season, so if he holds true to all he was quoted as saying in this interview, it appears we're only gonna get to see this talented colt just 1 or 2 more times before he's whisked off to the breeding shed and a new career at stud.
WOW! Now that was one impressive performance by this guy in the Elkwood after finding nothing but trouble the entire race!
Why doesn't this guy get more love?? I can't help but feel if he was a Coolmore or Galileo colt ppl would be cheering him on on here a lot more.
Aurelia's Belle worked 5f, July 4th, in 1:01:00 (b) finishing 8/34.
Noble Bird worked 4f, July 4th, in 49:40 (b) finishing 35/55.
