RACE REPLAY: 2016 Peter Pan Stakes Featuring Unified:
Exaggerator (1st in the Preakness) and Cherry Wine (2nd in the Preakness) will head next to the Belmont. Nyquist is undecided for the Belmont.
I honestly think shipping Nyquist to the Belmont is rather selfish. The horse is tired, he's won the Kentucky Derby and placed in the Preakness. He deserves a rest.As for Exaggerator, he is built and bred for the 1 1/2 mile distance of the Belmont Stakes. But he will have competed in all 3 TC races. Could take its' toll.
According to David Grening from DRF, Nyquist had a temperature of 102 this morning and will not ship to Belmont today. O'Neill said he still hopes that he can make it to the Belmont Stakes.
