Kiaran McLaughlin tells DRF's David Grening that he was very very impressed with Mohaymen today and can't wait to see what the future holds for him. McLaughlin says as long as Mohaymen comes out of today in good shape, he will ship to Palm Meadows in Florida tomorrow and could make his three year old debut in the G3 Holy Bull at the end of January at Gulfstream, according to DRF
Irad Ortiz, Jr. says Lewis Bay was green in her easy Demoiselle score -- could be a scary filly for future competition.
