Analysis: After last weekend Nyquist is looking better than ever. Exaggerator dominated in the Santa Anita Derby while Brody’s Cause easily won the Bluegrass. Nyquist has three wins over Exaggerator, and one over Brody’s Cause so his resume certainly got a big boost. He had a minor illness after the Florida Derby, but that looks to be behind him now as he’s back on track and galloping. Easy choice for the number one spot as of now.
