OCEANPORT, NJ – Kentucky Derby (G1) runner-up Mandaloun will work Saturday at Monmouth Park – weather permitting – according to Blake Cox, the son of trainer Brad Cox, as the 3-year-old son of Into Mischief continues to move forward with his preparations for the $1 million TVG.com Haskell Stakes (G1) on July 17.
Mandaloun was part of a contingent of Cox runners that arrived at Monmouth Park on Tuesday, a group that included four horses entered for the 4 other graded stakes races on the Haskell Day card.
Arklow (United Nations [G1]), Juliet Foxtrot (WinStar Matchmaker [G3]), Night Ops (Monmouth Cup [G3]), and Vault (Molly Pitcher [G3]) accompanied Mandaloun on the van from Kentucky.
“Everyone shipped in very well,” said Blake Cox. “All of them galloped Wednesday and today.
“Mandaloun is doing very well. We’ll probably point for a work on Saturday, weather dependent. It will be a nice, easy 1/2 (mile). He’s ready to go.”
Mandaloun already has a race over the track, having won the TVG.com Pegasus Stakes on June 13.
The list of possible starters for the 54th edition of the Haskell includes Belmont Stakes (G1) runner-up Hot Rod Charlie; Preakness Stakes (G1) winner Rombauer and runner-up Midnight Bourbon; Following Sea; Pickin’ Time; Basso; and Antigravity.

Pickin’ Time, trained by Kelly Breen, Basso (trained by Gregg Sacco), and Antigravity (trained by Jerry Hollendorfer) are stabled at Monmouth Park.
Blake Cox said the Grade 1-winning Arklow, coming off a victory in the Louisville Stakes (G3) at Churchill Downs on May 15 in his seasonal debut, “might work an easy 1/2” on Sunday in preparation for the 1 3/8-mile United Nations on the turf.
