Hurricane J (Nyquist) wins on debut in America for Amo Racing and trainer Paul Henrique Lobo.
Having shown sparkle in his workouts for the Kentucky handlers, the son of Derby winner Nyquist put it all together here with a really strong display. He travelled powerfully before kicking off the home turn where he got in to a battle up the stretch with long time leader Pensacola. Hurricane J showed guts and a game attitude to gain the win at the line and looks a smart prospect for connections.
Hurricane J was purchased at the Keeneland September Yearling Sales in conjunction with fellow agent Ben McElroy.
