Nyquist Wins Derby

Danzing Candy roared out to the lead and Nyquist settled in just behind. As they came down the stretch Nyquist took the lead and held it the rest of the way home. A hard charging Exaggerator, ridden by Kent Desormeaux, almost closed but was just a little too late as he came in second.

Nyquist’s owner J. Paul Reddam, got his second Kentcuky Derby victory. His first was in 2012 with I’ll Have Another. I’ll Have Another then won the Preakness but was a scratch in the Belmont and didn’t get his shot at a Triple Crown.
