Kentucky Derby champion Nyquist will toe the track once again when he goes to post for the Pennsylvania Derby on September 24. After opening his career with 8 consecutive wins, this son of Uncle Mo has lost his last two races (Preakness 3rd, Haskell 4th). Perhaps compromised by wet tracks and a sizzling opening pace in each of the last two starts, the Doug O’Neill trained colt has been working quietly at San Luis Rey Downs in California. “He has been breezing and looks great right now,” says O’Neill. “We think he’s ready to go and we look forward to winning again on September 24th.” The mile and an eighth Pennsylvania Derby is worth $1.25 million and should provide a big challenge for the 2016 Derby champ. Question is, can this vastly talented colt find the winner’s circle again as he looks toward the Breeders’ Cup Classic???Nyquist 20160507_2562
