Jerardi: Danzing Candy may have hard time repeating


Nyquist has never lost and has run really fast exactly once. I admit to being confused because I love watching this colt run, I like his toughness, and I admire his versatility. But the Beyer Speed Figure of 94 for his win in the Florida Derby does not give me the confidence to feel really comfortable with the Kentucky Derby favorite as he heads for Churchill Downs. Perhaps this is one of those horses who runs just fast enough to win. I am keeping an open mind, but I was hoping for a 104 Beyer.
