▪ Nyquist had another energetic jog on Sunday, going twice around the wrong way on the Keeneland oval with Jonny Garcia up. Jack Sisterson, assistant to trainer Doug O’Neill, said the Florida Derby winner would likely resuming galloping on Monday. “The first thing I did was text Doug and the words I told Doug were ‘Words can’t describe how good he went,’” Sisterson said. “It’s an honor to be around a horse like this. I know he was just jogging and you think well, what can you see in a horse just jogging? But it was fantastic.”
