Nyquist Watch Continues....


Another Good Day for The Champ

With exercise rider Jonny Garcia aboard, Nyquist jogged nearly a mile and then galloped a mile before the Wednesday morning renovation break.

“Jonny said he felt better here than he does back home,” said Jack Sisterson, assistant to trainer Doug O’Neill. “He will jog in the morning and work an easy half-mile Friday.”

Among the other horses in the O’Neill string here are two fillies owned by Nyquist owner Paul Reddam: Fair Grounds Oaks winner Land Over Sea and Darley Alcibiades winner Gomo.

Land Over Sea is scheduled to work Friday as her preparations continue toward the Kentucky Oaks.Gomo could wind up in the same race.
“She is doing fine and we are moving forward with her,” Sisterson said of Gomo, who finished fourth in the Gulfstream Park Oaks on April 2 in her 2016 debut.

Gomo has picked up 20 points toward the Kentucky Oaks, a field that is limited to 14 starters. She ranks 15th on the Oaks points list.
