Nyquist improves to 6-0 with San Vicente victory

ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) Nyquist remained undefeated with a 1 1/2-length victory in the $200,000 San Vicente Stakes on Monday at Santa Anita.

Ridden by Mario Gutierrez, Nyquist ran seven furlongs in 1:20.71, the third-fastest time in the race's history, which dates to 1955 when current distance was installed.

The 3-year-old colt paid $2.80, $2.10 and $2.10 as the 2-5 favorite in the field of five. Nyquist improved to 6-0, and earned $120,000 to boost his career earnings to $1,733,600.

Nyquist is trained by Doug O'Neill, who guided I'll Have Another to victories in the 2012 Kentucky Derby and Preakness.

Exaggerator returned $2.40 and $2.10 as the 5-2 second choice.

Denman's Call, also trained by O'Neill, paid $2.60 to show.
