Reddam Racing’s Nyquist, the undefeated favorite for the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (G1), walked the shedrow at his Keeneland barn Friday morning.
“We just wanted to give him one more day,” said Jack Sisterson, assistant to trainer Doug O’Neill. “He is fine and happy. He was dragging his hot walker around the shedrow this morning.”
Winner of last Saturday’s Xpressbet.com Florida Derby (G1), Nyquist was scheduled to return to the track Thursday but a slightly elevated white blood cell count kept the colt in the barn.
Sisterson said Nyquist is scheduled to go to the track in the morning.
