Racing Headlines

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.

Dear Readers,

There have been significant changes to the Handicapper's Edge and Bloodstock Journal newsletters. These changes are meant to produce more analytical content for our readers as well as handicappers who use the information in the newsletters.

Nearly everything has been migrated over to the TwinSpires.com Blog section on TwinSpires.com, including Dick Powell's Handicapping Insights and John Mucciolo's Notebooks. These features are still available, and for free like everything in the newsletters, but are just located in a different place now.

Features

Dear Readers,

There have been significant changes to the Handicapper's Edge and Bloodstock Journal newsletters. These changes are meant to produce more analytical content for our readers as well as handicappers who use the information in the newsletters.

Nearly everything has been migrated over to the TwinSpires.com Blog section on TwinSpires.com, including Dick Powell's Handicapping Insights and John Mucciolo's Notebooks. These features are still available, and for free like everything in the newsletters, but are just located in a different place now.
