UNDEFEATED ECLIPSE CHAMPION NYQUIST TO MAKE 3-YEAR-OLD DEBUT IN MONDAY’S GRADE II, $200,000 SAN VICENTE STAKES AT SEVEN FURLONGS; DESORMEAUX’S EXAGGERATOR TO PROVIDE CHIEF OPPOSITION

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 12, 2016)–Reddam Racing’s undefeated Eclipse Champion Nyquist, idle since winning the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Oct. 31, heads a field of six sophomores in Santa Anita’s Grade II, $200,000 San Vicente Stakes at seven furlongs on Monday.Trained by Doug O’Neill and ridden by Mario Gutierrez in all five of his wins, the Kentucky-bred colt by Uncle Mo, who has also posted victories in the Grade II Best Pal Stakes, Grade I Del Mar Futurity and Grade I FrontRunner Stakes, will attempt to provide the triumvirate of J. Paul Reddam, O’Neill and Gutierrez with a measure of déjà vu, as they also teamed for victory in the 2012 Santa Anita and Kentucky Derbies with I’ll Have Another.While recent stakes wins by top Derby prospects Mohaymen and Mor Spirit have generated considerable early buzz among industry observers, O’Neill remained upbeat this morning regarding Nyquist’s prospects.“We’re just eager to see him compete at a high level on Monday and let that speak for itself,” he said. “That’s what I love about this game, though, everyone has an opinion…Whenever you read something negative about your own horses, it’s like somebody saying something about your family members…But if he runs a big race Monday, we can write our own story.”A winner going seven furlongs in the Del Mar Futurity three starts back on Sept. 7, Nyquist will be shortening up off a pair of wins at a mile and a sixteenth, in both the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and Santa Anita’s FrontRunner Stakes Sept. 26. His career earnings of $1,613,600 dwarf those of the rest of the San Vicente field.Big Chief Racing’s Exaggerator, idle since winning the Grade III, 1 1/16 miles Delta Jackpot over a muddy strip on Nov. 21, was a close fourth, beaten three lengths, by Nyquist in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and will unquestionably be the second choice in the San Vicente wagering. Trained by Keith Desormeaux, the Kentucky-bred colt by Curlin demonstrated a stalking style in winning the Grade II, 6 ½ furlong Saratoga Special four starts back on Aug. 16 and could likely employ similar tactics off the bench.A winner of three out of his six starts, he’ll be ridden by Desormeaux’s Hall of Fame brother, Kent, for the fourth consecutive time. Exaggerator has a solid work tab for his return that includes a bullet five furlong move in 58.20 here on Feb. 2. A well beaten fifth by Nyquist in his maiden special weight debut at Santa Anita June 5, he has earnings of $983,120.Trainer Wesley Ward will be represented by Florida-bred Sheikh of Sheikhs, comes off a third place finish in the Grade III, six furlong Hutcheson Stakes at Gulfstream on Jan 2. Owned by Abdullah Saeed Almaddah, Sheikh of Sheikhs, who has a pair of sprint victories from four starts, will be making his Southern California debut. A bay colt by Discreetly Mine, he’s shown good speed in both of his wins.El Charro is another shipping in from south Florida to make his Southern California debut in the San Vicente. A Florida-bred colt by Put It Back, El Charro, who was purchased privately following a second place finish in a one mile minor stakes at Gulfstream Park Jan. 2, has two wins from six starts and will be making his first start for trainer David Jacobson. He is owned by Head of Plains Partners, LLC and Jacobson.A 3 ¾ length first-out maiden winner going 5 ½ furlongs Jan. 9, Denman’s Call is Doug O’Neill’s “Avis” choice in the San Vicente. A Kentucky-bred gelding by Northern Afleet, Denman’s Call was bred by W C Racing, Milt Gilman and Mark Verge. He’s owned by Gilman Racing, Westside Rentals.com and W.C. Racing, Inc.The complete field for the Grade II San Vicente, to be run as the fifth on a nine-race card Monday, with jockeys and weights in post position order: Nyquist, Mario Gutierrez, 124; Electrifying, Tyler Baze, 120; El Charro, Joe Talamo, 120; Denman’s Call, Flavien Prat, 120; Exaggerator, Kent Desormeaux, 122, and Sheikh of Sheikhs, Rafael Bejarano, 120.First post time on Monday is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.last_img read more

Barrett: Sea Eagles face tough task shedding players

first_imgDespite Barrett’s best intentions to shield his players from the fallout of the $750,000 fine and $660,000 in cap deductions over 2018-19 announced on Monday, he has 12 players off contract at the end of this year – seven are in the 17 he named to face the Canberra Raiders at Lottoland on Saturday.”We’ve spoken as a group about it and we’ll do our best to keep them informed about what’s going on,” Barrett said on Friday.”As I understand it the club did lodge an appeal last night (Thursday) so who knows what’s going to happen.”The players I’ve got in the room now are here to do a job. As I said they’re professionals and we’ll keep them in the loop as much as we can.”I’d love to be able to keep all of them but what happens over the next few weeks will determine what we’ve got this year and what we’ve got next year.”Experienced prop Darcy Lussick is in the final stages of negotiations to move to Super League – reportedly the Toronto Wolfpack or Leeds Rhinos.”Look, I’m not sure where that’s at. It surfaced a couple of weeks ago,” Barrett said. “But as it stands Darcy will be here and he’s going to play this weekend – for Blacktown (Workers Sea Eagles) on Saturday.”Another in line for Manly’s Intrust Super Premiership NSW feeder club is 19-year-old Moses Suli, who has switched from the Wests Tigers to the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in the off-season before linking with the Sea Eagles earlier this month.Manly lodge appeal with NRL over salary cap sanctionsLong-term pain: How Sea Eagles avoided losing pointsSuli has documented off-field issues but Barrett is willing to invest time in the youngster.”He’s going well and we’re expecting Moses to be available to play next week. So he’ll play for Blacktown next weekend,” Barrett said, as Suli was put through some sprint drills on his own with a trainer in the background at Lottoland on Friday.”He’s been really good. He hasn’t missed a beat. He’s done everything we’ve asked of him.”He’s a lovely kid and I’m really happy for him. He’s put himself in this position to get back on the field.”He came over and saw us and I think you can always see when there’s good in a person and I certainly see a lot of good in Moses. He’s got some close friends here at the club.”I just saw something there that he wasn’t a write-off and I was willing to give him a chance. He’s been a pleasure. He hasn’t rocked the boat at all. He’s got the full support of the blokes inside (dressing room) which is the main thing.”I’d love to be able to keep all of them but what happens over the next few weeks will determine what we’ve got this year and what we’ve got next year.Trent BarrettWhile Lussick and Suli aren’t a part of the squad to play the Raiders, Barrett quashed speculation that Api Koroisau would slot into the No.6 jersey at Lachlan Croker’s expense, with Jackson Hastings coming off the bench to start at No.9.”I don’t know where that’s come from. Crokes didn’t train on Tuesday because of the HIA (head injury assessment) and that’s how we rolled. But that (switch) won’t be happening,” he said.”Crokes will definitely play (five-eighth) and there has definitely been no contemplation or thought about anything else.”There has been, however, an edict issued by Barrett that the Sea Eagles need to respond to the 34-6 thumping by the South Sydney Rabbitohs last round.”They are never pretty. We’re embarrassed about it. They’ve fronted up and owned what we tossed up last week. That was a product of all of us last week, and none of us were happy with it,” Barrett said, adding he didn’t think there was complacency after Manly enjoyed a drubbing of their own beating Parramatta 54-0 in round two.last_img read more
