Mohaymen earned $988,417 on the track.

Four-time Grade 2 winner Mohaymen has been retired from racing and will begin his stallion career at Shadwell Farm’s Nashwan Stud in Lexington, Ky., for the 2018 breeding season at an advertised fee of $7,500.

The 4-year-old son of Tapit retires with five wins in 13 career starts for earnings of $998,417. His first five starts were all victories, including Grade 2 wins in the Fountain of Youth Stakes, Holy Bull Stakes, Remsen Stakes, and Nashua Stakes. He also finished fourth in the 2016 Kentucky Derby.

Kiaran McLaughlin trained Mohaymen for owner Sheikh Hamdan Al-Maktoum’s Shadwell Farm.

“Mohaymen was a very talented racehorse and is an extremely smart individual,” McLaughlin said. “He was definitely one of the best 2-year-olds I’ve ever trained.”  

Bred in Kentucky by Clearsky Farms, Mohaymen is out of the multiple Grade 2-winning Dixie Union mare Justwhistledixie, whose three foals to race are all winners, including 2013 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner New Year’s Day.

The extended family includes Grade 2 winners Penny’s Reshoot, Pok Ta Pok, Chace City, Smooth Air, and Overdriven.
