Nyquist Back To Work At San Luis Rey Downs

Nyquist breezes at Santa Anita July 4.

J. Paul Reddam’s Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist was back on the worktab for the first time since August this Saturday, breezing a mile in 1:45.80 at San Luis Rey Downs in California for trainer Doug O’Neill. Sidelined with what O’Neill termed a “growth spurt” earlier this month, Nyquist was sent to the training center to add swimming to his exercise regimen, keeping the weight off his back while the growth spurt ran its course.

O’Neill told the Daily Racing Form that there was very little emphasis on the time of the son of Uncle Mo‘s workout this morning, saying: “He had a good, accelerated gallop going a mile, with the thinking that if he got tired, we wouldn’t overdo it.”

Scheduled to make his next start in the Pennsylvania Derby at Parx Racing on Sept. 24, Nyquist will have three more works before that race, O’Neill said.
