For the 142nd running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 7, 2016, Nyquist was the 3-year-old champion! Nyquist, who had won a record $3.3 million heading into the Derby, extended his unbeaten record to 8-0 with a smooth trip under jockey Mario Gutierrez. Doug O’Neill has trained more than 200 horses for owner J. Paul Reddam over the last dozen years, a relationship that has brought each of them their greatest victories in the sport. Congrats to Nyquist and his winning connections!
