NYRA Press Release: Shadwell Stable’s Mohaymen stretched his legs over the Saratoga main track for the first time since returning to the work tab in late June. Working solo, the gray colt breezed a half-mile in 48.87 seconds ahead of his expected comeback in the Grade 2, $600,000 Jim Dandy on July 30.

The 3-year-old son of Tapit turned in a pair of official workouts over Greentree Training Center’s synthetic Tapeta surface, breezing three furlongs in 36.40 on June 23 and 47.60 on July 2, his first serious moves since finishing fourth in the Grade 1 Kentucky Derby on May 7.

“He’s been working at Greentree the last couple of times, so it was nice to get him on the main track,” said trainer Kiaran McLaughlin. “[It was] just a routine work. Hopefully, we’ll continue working weekly and get back in the starting gate July 30.”

Also working for McLaughlin is Grade 1 Ogden Phipps winner Cavorting, who breezed a half-mile over Belmont Park’s training track in 47.77, the second-fastest of 66 at the distance.

Cavorting is targeting the Grade 1 Personal Ensign on August 27 at Saratoga for her next start.
