I was surprised that TVG didn't show the race. IIRC, the channel has covered it in years past.
Since I don't get TVG2, I don't know if the race was shown on Betfair's stepchild channel.

Mohaymen Scheduled For Return To Kentucky After Colt Was Eased In Alydar
Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin reported Monday that Mohaymen will travel to Shadwell Farm in Kentucky in the upcoming days as his owner, Shadwell Stable, decides his future.

The 4-year-old son of Tapit returned to the dirt in Sunday's $100,000 Alydar at Saratoga, where he finished last in the five-horse field after being eased to the wire in the stretch. McLaughlin said Mohaymen came out of the race healthy, but will leave Saratoga later this week.

One start prior to Alydar, he was sent to the turf in a one-mile optional claiming race on July 14 at Belmont Park where he finished sixth.

“We tried one more time, with blinkers on and on the dirt, and it didn't go well,” said McLaughlin. “We'll send him back home in the upcoming week and see what happens from there.”

Elate wins the Alabama easily over It Tiz Well (who held on despite setting a pretty decent pace) and Salty.

Follow your heart. You need it. And where did it learn to scurry like that?

Unchained Melody was unsaddled and given a ride back to her barn by the horse ambulance to be checked out. Her rider said that it wasn't that she went 'wrong,' but that she was just so lethargic.
I suspect that both Holy Helena and New Money Honey will be headed back to their preferred surfaces.

? She broke her maiden on dirt and placed in her debut, also on dirt.
Surface isn't the issue I'm guessing.
Still, it's a shame they didn't run her through the Canadian TC.

It looked hot there today. And humid. I can't blame these horses if they were effected.

Brian Lynch, trainer of Unchained Melody texts, the filly "appears to be fine, definitely no soundness issues."

It was a beautiful day - not hot and not humid. We sat in the sun watching the big screen during the Alabama and were quite comfortable.
