HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. (AP) Mohaymen has remained unbeaten, winning the Grade II Holy Bull Stakes on Saturday at Gulfstream Park for his fourth victory in four starts and moving closer to a Kentucky Derby chance.

Ridden by Junior Alvarado and trained by Kiaran McLaughlin, Mohaymen beat a field of six with ease. He pushed his career earnings to $555,000 and now has 20 points in the system used to decide the field for the season's first Triple Crown race at Churchill Downs in May.

Mohaymen finished the 1 1-16 miles in 1:42.07 for his third stakes win, the overwhelming favorite paying $2.60. He beat runner-up Greenpointcrusader by 3 1-2 lengths.

Next up for Mohaymen is likely the Fountain of Youth on Feb. 27 and the Florida Derby on April 2, both at Gulfstream.
