Mohaymen breezed four furlongs in 47.09 seconds behind a pair of workers on the Belmont Park main track, putting in his penultimate work before the Grade 1, $ 1.2 million Mohegan Sun Metropolitan Handicap on June 10.
Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said he was pleased with the effort for the 4-year-old son of Tapit, who last year won the Grade 2 Holy Bull and the Grade 2 Fountain of Youth.
“He got a little bit farther back than we wanted so it was hard to go by them. The two in front of him worked well. But he worked 47, so it was a fast work. He’s doing very well. He was happy after it. He’s doing well and we’ll have one more work and see where we’re at.”
McLaughlin said Mohaymen will work either Saturday, June 3, or the following day depending on the weather for his final breeze before his first Grade 1 start since the King’s Bishop on August 27.
