CHAMPION NYQUIST 'BREEZES' FOUR FURLONGS

O'Neill 'happy' with Nyquist workout

At his home base of Santa Anita Friday morning, Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist had his first workout since returning last Sunday from Baltimore where the son of Uncle Mo trained by Doug O'Neill for Paul and Zillah Reddam suffered his lone defeat after eight straight victories, finishing third in the Preakness Stakes.

At the convenient time of 7:11 in ideal conditions under exercise rider Jonny Garcia, Nyquist worked four furlongs in 48.60, breezing, according to Santa Anita clockers, who caught him in 24.60 for the first quarter, with a five furlong gallop out of 1:02 flat.
