Gary Barber, Wachtel Stable and Swilcan Stable's reigning champion 2-Year-Old Filly Vequist (Nyquist) is aiming toward a late summer/fall campaign, while targeting the GI Cotillion S. at Parx Sept. 25, according to her trainer Butch Reid, Jr.
“She's been training lightly down at Fair Hill Training Center in Maryland and she'll be coming back to my barn at Parx in the next 10 days,” said Reid, Jr. “We're looking forward to a fall campaign with her and have our eye on the Cotillion. I could see us possibly getting her a start at the end of Saratoga. We're excited to get her back in action.”
Winner of the GI Spinaway S. at Saratoga last summer, Vequist followed up with a second in Belmont's GI Frizette S. in October before annexing the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies at Keeneland.
Vequist was shelved after finishing ninth in her seasonal debut in the GII Davona Dale S. at Gulfstream in February.
