Yahoo News - 10 months
(Reuters) - Kentucky Derby favorite Nyquist will get to drink from the NHL's coveted Stanley Cup on Saturday before he sets off on his bid to win racing's symbol of excellence in the Run for the Roses at Churchill Downs. Nyquist, whose hockey-mad owner J. Paul Reddam named him after the gifted Swedish forward who plays for the Detroit Red Wings, is the 3-1 early choice in the 1-1/4 mile test among 3-year-old thoroughbreds after winning his first seven races.
