Report: Nyquist pulled out of Belmont Stakes

It appears that Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist will not be running in the Belmont Stakes this year.

According to the Daily Racing Form, Nyquist now has a high white blood cell count after he spiked a fever following Saturday's Preakness Stakes race. He finished third in that race, ending hopes of another Triple Crown this year.
