Could Nyquist be this year's American Pharoah?
At the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, Nyquist begins the pursuit of the Triple Crown in Louisville. He's the favorite at 3-1 odds Thursday.
Nyquist is a perfect 7-0 and will set up in the No. 13 post position, the same post he broke from to win the Breeders' Cup Juvenile last year.
