If you win the Kentucky Derby, you’re going to be the most stalked equine celebrity in the world until the Preakness Stakes — longer still if you win that, too.
Poor Nyquist can’t even take a bath in privacy:
Creeping on 2016 Kentucky Derby winner’s morning workouts at Pimlico is as easy as the click of a mouse — looking good out there this morning, buddy! — and this year the track even has a drone in on the action. Check it out:
The latest news is that the 3-5 favorite will start from the no. 3 post in Saturday’s race. Insiders are picking Derby runner-up Exaggerator as his closest threat; he’ll start from the no. 5 post as the 3-1 second choice. Trained by Keith Desormeaux, the horse has yet to beat Nyquist in four-attempts and is a late charger, which may work against him across the Preakness’ shorter length.
Could we have another Triple Crown winner on our hands this year? Only time will tell.
