Nyquist, Exaggerator ready to resume rivalry in Belmont Stakes

Humbled but proud trainer Doug O’Neill confirmed Sunday that Nyquist would ship to New York on Monday to begin preparations for the Belmont Stakes on June 11, while Keith Desormeaux also declared his colt definite for the 11/2-mile final leg of the American classics.
