Early this year, Nyquist was the highest-profile 3-year-old in the nation. Wholesale Cowboys Jerseys . He had won all five of his starts at 2 and been voted an Eclipse Award as North Americas top juvenile male. By spring, following victories in the San Vicente, Florida Derby, and Kentucky Derby, his record stood at a perfect 8 for 8.But since finishing fourth in the Haskell Invitational on July 31, Nyquist has disappeared from public view as trainer Doug ONeill stabled him in relative isolation at San Luis Rey Downs, a training center located 30 miles northwest of Del Mar in Bonsall, Calif. On Saturday, Nyquist will be front and center for the first time since the Haskell when he tops a field of 12 in the $1.25 million Pennsylvania Derby at Parx Racing in suburban Philadelphia.ONeill sent Nyquist to San Luis Rey after the Haskell, rather than stable him at Del Mar or Santa Anita, because the colt was having a growth spurt and because he thought Nyquist would benefit from the quieter atmosphere.He had gotten a little taller and a little light on us, ONeill said. We decided he needed a tranquil setting where he could get some cardio and some exercise in but not be overwhelmed with the stress of what racetracks can sometimes do.ONeill said Nyquist was 16 hands tall in early spring but measured 16-2 recently. A hand is equal to four inches, and horses are measured from the ground to the top of their withers in the shoulder area.Hes grown over two inches in the matter of five, six months, ONeill said. I think youre looking at a taller, more filled out, better version, and hopefully well see some positive results with him come Saturday.ONeill said that around the barn, Nyquist is manageable and comfortable in his skin, hes not an overexcitable horse, but that hes competitive when training and that it is easier for exercise rider Jonny Garcia to handle him in a less-crowded environment.We try to choose times to take him out at Santa Anita and Del Mar when it is the most quiet, but even those times youve still got probably 50 other horses out there, ONeill said. At San Luis Rey, on some mornings it has just been him and a few other horses on the track, and you know those competitive juices are able to kind of hit the pause button.ONeill is confident that Nyquist is at his best for the Pennsylvania Derby and will be able to break his two-race losing streak -- he finished third in the Preakness prior to the Haskell. Nyquist has had four one-mile workouts at San Luis Rey, a somewhat unusual pattern but one ONeill believes suits his horse.My angle with him is, hes got so much natural speed, and hes so competitive, I think the thing he can benefit from the most is just good stamina gallops and stamina works, he said.Each of Nyquists one-mile works has been quicker than the one before. ONeill said that was not intentional.We havent sought to make each week a little bit faster than the previous, but hes just getting stronger, and you can tell the weight and muscle he has added since the Haskell, ONeill said. You can just see it when you are looking at your stopwatch and watching him go that hes doing it a little bit easier and a little bit faster.The Pennsylvania Derby is an important race for Nyquist, who is neck-and-neck with Exaggerator atop the 3-year-old male division, with Travers winner Arrogate not far behind. A win in the Pennsylvania Derby would solidify Nyquists ranking, but a loss would hinder his Eclipse Awards chances.Id be lying if I said I think we can get beat and still be the 3-year-old champion, ONeill said. But hes telling me hes fit and ready to go, and well find out more Saturday. Cheap Cowboys Jerseys . The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196.
