FIRST STAKES WINNER FOR NYQUIST

24 Aug 2020 13:03


 

Champion, and Kentucky Derby winner, Nyquist, came up with his first stakes winner when his two-year-old son Gretzky The Great won Sunday’s Soaring Softly Stakes at Woodbine.

Gretzky the Great, by Nyquist, just broke his maiden on August 2nd, prevailing by four and one-quarter widening lengths on the main track at Woodbine when that race was taken off of the turf. Well, it appears that this precocious two-year-old might be a horse for any course as he captured the Soaring Free Stakes on the turf on August 23rd for his first career Stakes win and becomes the first Black Type winner for his sire.

The colt is one of three first-crop winners thus far for Nyquist -who won the Kentucky Derby in 2016 and who was North America’s Champion 2YO Colt of 2015.

A son of top-class stallion, and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winning champion, Uncle Mo, Nyquist is out of the winning Forestry mare Seeking Gabrielle.
