Nyquist’s Crimson Advocate Takes Royal Palm Juvenile Fillies S.

Trainer George Weaver booked a traveling companion for his earlier Royal Palm Juvenile winner No Nay Mets as CRIMSON ADVOCATE (Nyquist–Citizen Advocate, by Proud Citizen) went gate-to-wire in the filly’s division, stamping her own ticket to next month’s Royal Ascot meet. With the best break of the field, the filly never gave the others a chance, opening up a length in the first furlong and never letting the others get a step closer. Wesley Ward’s Ocean Mermaid (GB) (Kingman {GB}) was the only rival to give chase but was always second best as Crimson Advocate cruised home alone to win by daylight. The final time for the five-furlong sprint was :56.25, over a second faster than the colt’s division earlier in the day. With the win, she earned an automatic start into one of the six 2-year-old races at this year’s Royal Ascot meet happening from Jun. 20-24 and her connections also earned a $25,000 travel stipend. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-1.
