Multiple graded stakes winner Mohaymen has been retired and will stand stud next season at Shadwell's Nashwan Stud in central Kentucky for a fee of $7,500, per a report from The Blood-Horse on Thursday.

The big gray trained by Kiaran McLaughlin was an early standout on the 2016 Kentucky Derby trail, winning the Grade 2 Holy Bull and Fountain of Youth, but lost the G1 Florida Derby to eventual Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist.

Mohaymen struggled to hit the board after finishing fourth in the 2016 Derby, most recently coming fifth in the Alydar Stakes at Saratoga last month.

Mohaymen is the son of Tapit and Dixie Union mare Justwhistledixie.

      poor guy could not breathe

      • Ida Lee

        Thanks for replying to my comment….I missed that….don’t remember reading about him having a breathing problem….I thought maybe he just lost his will to race ….it happens ….

    • Larry sterne

      Like 2 brothers, each a little different with different life outcomes some become super stars some just stars. Wish I had him.

      • Larry Ensor

        Michael Jordan has 4 siblings, 2 brother and 2 sisters. Don’t think any of them have made headlines.

    • Clint Torus

      Yes, very sad.

  • Blue Larkspur

    Good luck in your new career, pretty one.

  • Kevin Callinan

    Major disappointment, seemed to fold when tested.

    • Corky menkus

      Like a cheap tent…

  • lastromantribune

    who in there right mind wants to breed to a horse that has breathing problems ? ?….really….I mean is that not passed on genetically ? maybe I am wrong about this…..I know I wouldn’t take a chance….hence probably why he is standing for 7.5k. no thank you . maybe it wont matter and he will be ok. good luck to him. kind of think he will end up as some sort of stud in some far away place

    • Judy Gaddis

      Let’s hope not……………….

      • lastromantribune

        Judy the odds are against him but this is a game of odds…we can sure as heck root for him.

  • john

    Should be a regional stallion in NY or MD

    • Gls

      Amen, Shadwell is a beautiful place and the have top mares but No luck developing stallions. I think the price is right, but the place is wrong.

  • Judy Gaddis

    Be happy in your retirement, Gorgeous! You were one of my favorite grays………….

  • Jack The Ripper

    He’s only 4. supprised to see that people are not protesting his retirement like they were pratical joker’s.

    • slvrblltday

      PJ is 3. A world of difference.

      • Jack The Ripper

        Not by much. Godolphin/Shadwell/Maktoums have bottomless pockets to keep this horse going.

  • twilight mike

    he was never the same after nyquist burped him in the florida derby

  • Convene

    So sorry he didn’t go on. He was pretty fantastic for a while. I don’t remember reading that he had breathing problems but I could have missed something. I wish him a good new career and hope to see some sons and daughters going on to fulfill his early promise. Thanks Shadwell for retiring him before something terrible happened – when he gave notice that it was just over for him. See you, Mohaymen. I’ll miss you anyway.
