Nyquist primed for San Vicente following final major move
Undefeated Breeders' Cup champion Nyquist completed his final major preparations on Sunday at Santa Anita Park for that track's February 15 San Vicente S. (G2). The Doug O'Neill trainee drilled five furlongs in company, setting splits of :23.65 and :47.16 before completing the move in :59.38 under regular rider Mario Gutierrez.
Also on Sunday, Kobe's Back rallied from the back of a short five-horse field to take the Palos Verdes S. (G2) by a half-length under jockey Gary Stevens. The Peter Eurton-trained gray was making his five-year-old debut in this spot.
Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin discussed his plans for unbeaten Grade 2 victor Mohaymen ahead of the February 27 Fountain of Youth, saying the gray colt would breeze for the next two Fridays at Palm Meadows.
