DREAM TREE, ESCAPE CLAUSE, MARLEY’S FREEDOM & PARADISE WOODS HEADLINE STAR-STUDDED GRADE II, $200,000 SANTA MONICA STAKES ON SATURDAY

first_imgDREAM TREE, ESCAPE CLAUSE, MARLEY’S FREEDOM & PARADISE WOODS HEADLINE STAR-STUDDED GRADE II, $200,000 SANTA MONICA STAKES ON SATURDAY ARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 13, 2019)–In what shapes up as a truly star-studded affair, Dream Tree, Escape Clause, Marley’s Freedom and Paradise Woods headline a field of seven older fillies and mares in Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 Santa Monica Stakes at seven furlongs.Although she flopped as the 3-5 favorite in the opening day Grade I La Brea at the same distance, Bob Baffert’s previously undefeated Dream Tree merits top billing as she’s joined by stablemate Marley’s Freedom, who’s been idle since winning a Grade III, one turn mile stakes at Aqueduct Dec. 1.Quite possibly the hardest trying Thoroughbred in training, owner/trainer Don Schnell’s Manitoba Canadian-bred Escape Clause, fresh off a romping victory going 1 1/16 miles in the Grade III  La Canada Stakes here Jan. 12, will cut back in distance as she bids for her 20th win from 29 career starts.Paradise Woods, brilliant at three but winless in her last five starts, has been idle since July and will be making her first start for trainer John Shirreffs.Throw in last year’s Santa Monica winner, Selcourt, and this year’s renewal indeed has the look of something very special.DREAM TREEOwner:  Phoenix Thoroughbred III                                   TTrainer:  Bob BaffertUnbeaten in her first five starts, three of them graded, including the Grade I Starlet at Los Alamitos in December, 2017, this 4-year-old Uncle Mo filly was simply off of her game in the Grade I La Brea, a race in which she broke a bit slow, was attentive to the pace for a half mile and caved readily to finish last by 25 ½ lengths.  With five works to her credit since the La Brea, including a bullet six furlongs in 1:11.60 this past Sunday, look for Dream Tree to bounce back with an “A” performance with Mike Smith up.ESCAPE CLAUSEOwner:  Don SchnellTrainer:  Don SchnellOne of the best “feel good” stories in American Racing, she comes off a dominating 5 ½ length win in the Grade II La Canada and cuts back to a distance at which she’s a perfect two for two.  A winner of eight in a row last year, starting in Winnipeg, Manitoba on June 8 through Oct. 21 at Centennial Downs, near Calgary, Alberta, this Manitoba-bred has performed with unquestioned distinction in four Southern California starts, which have produced two wins, the first via disqualification in the restricted Kathryn Crosby Stakes at Del Mar Nov. 9 and in the La Canada here at Santa Anita.  Returned by Schnell to her base at Turf Paradise in Phoenix following the La Canada win, she’s had two recorded works heading into the Santa Monica, her most recent a half mile in 47 flat, second fastest of 46, on Feb. 9.  A 5-year-old Manitoba-bred by the Unbridled’s Song stallion Going Commando, Escape Clause is 28-19-3-3 overall with earnings of $423,500.MARLEY’S FREEDOMCicero Farms, LLCTrainer:  Bob BaffertA neck winner of the Grade III Go For Wand Handicap going a one turn mile at Aqueduct Dec. 1, this 5-year-old Blame mare was off as the 3-5 favorite and has been favored in her last six starts, winning five of them.  With Mike Smith apparently opting to ride Dream Tree, Drayden Van Dyke, who has won with three out of his four tries with her, gets the Santa Monica call.  An easy 3 ¼ length winner of the Grade I, seven furlong Ballerina Stakes at Saratoga three starts back on Aug. 25, Marley’s freedom is a four-time graded stakes winner and is the leading money earner in the field with $815,935.PARADISE WOODSOwner:  Pam & Martin Wygod & Steven SarkowskyTrainer:  John ShirreffsA winner of both the Grade I Santa Anita Oaks and the Grade I Zenyatta Stakes at age three, this 5-year-old mare by Union Rags has been idle since well beaten going 1 1/16 miles on turf in the restricted Osunitas Stakes at Del Mar on July 20–her fifth consecutive defeat since taking the Zenyatta in September, 2017.  A big question mark by any reckoning, she banked $773,890 with Richard Mandella, but will be making her first start for John Shirreffs, who’s been pleased with the way she’s trained up to the Santa Monica.  With an overall mark of 11-3-2-2 and three consecutive six furlong drills to her credit, including a bullet 1:10.80 drill here on Feb. 8, Paradise Woods appears ready as she’ll be ridden for the first time by Joel Rosario.SELCOURTOwner:  Medallion Racing & Keith AbrahamsTrainer:  John SadlerA galloping 4 ½ length winner of last year’s Santa Monica, this lightly raced 5-year-old Tiz Wonderful mare was then idle prior to running 12th in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint Nov. 3 at Churchill Downs.  With her next assignment coming as the 1-5 favorite in the ungraded Kalookan Queen Stakes going 6 ½ furlongs here on Jan. 13, she bobbled at the break, dueled for the lead and ended up second, beaten 2 ¼ lengths under regular rider Tyler Baze.  With Baze opting to stick with Escape Clause, Selcourt will be handled for the first time by Joe Talamo on Saturday.  Bred in Kentucky by Abrahams,  Selcourt is 8-4-2-1 and has earnings of $299,160.THE GRADE II SANTA MONICA WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTS IN POST POSITION ORDERRace 9 of 10 Approximate post time 4 p.m. PT Paradise Woods–Joel Rosario–120Selcourt–Joe Talamo–120Marley’s

Dele Alli slams ‘arrogant’ Spurs as Rashford ruins Mourinho’s Man Utd return

first_imgDELE ALLI rapped “arrogant” Tottenham as Marcus Rashford ruined Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United return.Dele’s wondergoal counted for nothing in the end as Rashford bagged a brace to lift the pressure off boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.2 Dele Alli called Spurs ‘arrogant’ after the slipped to defeat at Man UtdCredit: EPA2 Spurs had been itching to keep up their 100 per cent record under MourinhoCredit: ReutersNew Spurs chief Mourinho had been desperate to continue his winning run at the expense of the club who axed him almost a year ago.But Dele said: “With the old manager coming back they were always going to be up for it that little bit more.“We lost not on them outplaying us but on our attitude — we weren’t hungry enough. It was maybe a little bit of arrogance and over-confidence.”In games like this you have to have a bit of arrogance — but we were sloppy.“We were slow to every second ball and weren’t winning the 50-50s and you can’t do that in games like this.“It’s always nice to get a goal but you can’t see any positives when you lose a game. We wanted to win not just for him but for the fans.”Rashford lashed home a sixth-minute opener that caught out Spurs keeper Paulo Gazzaniga at his near post.LADBROKES 1-2-FREE Simply predict Man City vs Man Utd, Leicester and Wolves scores this coming weekend and win £100And his second early in the second half was from a VAR-checked penalty he had won himself, tricking Moussa Sissoko into a trip.Mourinho said: “He was dangerous and I knew that. I gave the players the best possible information about it.“The first is a typical Rashford goal, coming inside and shooting.“Also the way he attacked the defenders with his second goal. Our boys knew it, they knew it clearly.”Rashford, 22, now with nine goals from his last nine United outings, said: “That’s the hardest we’ve had to work to get a result this season.“We want to show people we can play against top teams. We know we need to improve but, game by game, we are. We had a lot of shots on goal.”The win enabled Solskjaer to go into Saturday’s derby at Manchester City with a smile on his face.Solskjaer said: “It’s the best game Marcus has had under me.

Origin greats back Cordner to lead the Blues

first_imgCordner was recently named Roosters co-captain along with last year’s skipper Jake Friend, and it hasn’t taken long for his name to be thrown into the ring to take over from Gallen at State of Origin level as well. Minichiello, who skippered the Roosters to premiership success in 2013 and who is an NRL Ambassador for 2017, is no stranger to the Origin arena and is confident Cordner has what it takes to lead his state. “It’s a great idea. The Blues are looking for a new captain to lead them into the future, and I think Boyd is a definite candidate for that role. He’s going to be in that squad for years to come so I’d pick him,” Minichiello told NRL.com. “I think every player in the team loves to play with Boyd because his game is pretty consistent from week to week and he doesn’t leave any stone unturned. He’s not happy if he doesn’t win so he’s got a great competitive nature. “Off the field, people listen when he says something because he says it with good authority.”Minichiello noted Cordner’s maturity from his formative days at the Roosters, with fellow senior players thoroughly impressed by his work ethic on and off the field during his first season in the NRL. Having made seven appearances in his debut season, it took Cordner just one game in 2012 to dispel any fears of second-year syndrome as he grubbered through in the 80th minute to set up Minichiello for the match-winning try in Round 1 against arch-rivals South Sydney. He has now played over 100 NRL games, represented his state and country and according to Minichiello is ready to embrace the added responsibility of having the ‘c’ next to his name. “To have the ability, and more importantly the confidence to put that kick in on the bell in an all-or-nothing play showed his maturity,” the former fullback said as he recalled the win over Souths.  “He loves to train hard, and that was a big thing that the older guys noticed. He never shirked his workload and he was always working hard in the gym or on the field. “He’s really excited about it. He’s looking forward to working with ‘Friendy’ (Jake Friend) who has done a fantastic job over the last couple of seasons. I think those two together will make a really strong leadership pairing.”Cordner’s ascension to the co-captaincy will benefit Friend who is coming off a difficult year flying solo in the top job. Dramas at the club on and off the field – coupled with a crippling injury toll – made life tough for the 26-year-old, but to Friend’s credit he fought on bravely week after week to finish the season as the Roosters’ best and fairest. “Obviously it was a tough year from a club point of view. Injuries and other things took their toll on every player, and obviously as a captain, you wear that responsibility a bit more because you’re in charge,” Minichiello said. “‘Friendy’ was such a great leader for the club last year and he prides himself on his performance and winning games as well. I think having co-captains will allow both Boyd and Jake to focus on what they have to do on the field as well as leading the boys around the park.”It’s not just ex-teammates who are backing Cordner to lead the Blues, with former NSW skipper Danny Buderus tipping the back-rower to excel if given the job. Buderus and Minichiello were at Rugby League Central on Wednesday along with 44 other NRL Ambassadors for the 2017 season, and the Knights great said Blues coach Laurie Daley should seriously consider Cordner for the captaincy. “I’m glad for Boyd Cordner for being named co-captain at the Roosters. I’d like to see someone like that [lead NSW],” Buderus said. “I know the Blues have got a young group coming through with the Trbojevic boys, Tyson Frizell and Josh Jackson – there are a number of guys there who have got a lot of years in them in the Origin arena. “I’m sure Laurie has thought about it long and hard and he’ll make the right decision, but for mine, Boyd Cordner has been a really good, strong player for a long time.”last_img read more

Simmons a surprise second Bledisloe starter

first_imgSimmons, played 13 matches for the Reds this year, one of those at blindside flanker after being released by Queensland as coach Nick Stiles looked to the future.He and fellow World Cup lock Kane Douglas were both out of favour at the Reds, with Simmons left out of the 23 as early as March when the side played the Jaguares.Simmons played in 11 of the Wallabies’ 15 Tests last year, starting in three of the Spring Tour Tests after an injury to Adam Coleman.Wallabies coach Michael Cheika showed the 72-Test veteran faith, though, picking he and fellow out-of-favour lock Kane Douglas in his Rugby Championship squad.Simmons is the only change in the Wallabies forward pack from the Sydney Test, with Rory Arnold shifted to the bench in a straight swap.As widely expected, Samu Kerevi, has been a casualty of the Wallabies’ Bledisloe loss as well, dropping out of the 23, with Tevita Kuridrani coming into the starting side for the Dunedin Test.Dane Haylett-Petty has been cleared of a biceps injury, replacing Curtis Rona in the 15, with Henry Speight shifting to the left wing.Rona has been kept in the matchday 23, though, named on the bench.Jack Dempsey comes into the 23 calculations, with Cheika leaving a choice between he and Lopeti Timani open for one more day.last_img read more

SBW fan makes ABs hijab

first_imgThe Aucklander captured attention on Saturday night wearing her special homemade All Blacks hijab at the test match against South Africa.The idea of a “rugby hijab” was suggested to her by her sons during the 2011 Rugby World Cup and Ali said she always wears it on game day.”My boys decided I am a big fan but there was one thing missing to my All Blacks outfit and thought it was a great idea to have my All Blacks hijab made up for me to wear on game days,” said Ali, who was spotted on camera celebrating a New Zealand try in the 57-0 rout of the Springboks last Saturday night.Originally, Ali took her hijab to a printing outlet who turned her away because of copyright. Not being one to let obstacles get in the way, the finance worker turned her art to sewing, which she had never attempted before. She cut the logo out of a beanie she owned and sewed it to the original hijab.Ali said it was important for the Muslim community to come forward and share their identity as it should be commonplace in such a multi-cultural country as New Zealand.”I have a social life as well and being a Muslim shouldn’t make any difference. I am an individual just like you.”Her message to other Muslims, whether they are rugby fans or not, was “don’t be shy to show your identity and wear your religion proudly”.”We should all respect one another’s religion.”Ali was originally from Fiji, but moved to Auckland in 1988 and has since called Manukau home. She has alway supported the All Blacks even against Fiji, which she is not sorry about.The massive All Blacks supporter attends every match she can in Auckland.While she loves the entire team, her favourite player is fellow Muslim Sonny Bill Williams.”I admire them all, but I admire the way he plays and he is a great role model for all Muslims.”While she would rather be an “original”, she is happy for her All Blacks scarf to go viral and be sold on the shelves.But she will always continue wearing her own “Ali Special”.

There will be a corridor from Seville to Real Madrid on Saturday in Chamartín

first_imgIn addition, there are precedents in reverse. In 2006, when Sevilla won their first UEFA Cup, the next league match was against the Real Madrid team at Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán. Then the whites paid tribute to the team at the time of Juande Ramos, who had released his European record.The gesture was a tradition that was seen normally until a few years ago, but in recent campaigns there have been episodes that have distorted the issue. Among other exceptions, Barcelona refused to make the white team a hallway for its conquest of the Club World Cup in 2017. “It is usually done if we participate in that competition. It is not the case now,” justified the director of Barça institutional relations, Guillermo Amor.Months later, Real Madrid returned the trip to Barça when he visited Chamartín with the newly conquered LaLiga title. Zidane explained then the refusal of the whites: “We are not going to make a corridor. It is a decision of mine and that’s it. I do not understand the corridor. Barcelona broke it. It is that tradition no longer exists.” LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 15, 2020 Sevilla will make a corridor to Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabéu before the dispute between the LaLiga match between the two next Saturday, starting at 4:00 p.m.. The Nervión team will have the usual and gentlemanly gesture between two teams when a title has just been won, in this case the Spanish Super Cup played last week in Jeddah.At the beginning of last year, Villarreal players made a corridor for Real Madrid players in the first meeting of 2019 for both teams after the white team manage to win the Club World Cup. Santi Cazorla, among other moments of mention, hugged his former teammate at Málaga Isco Alarcón while he was passing among the yellow players.center_img LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 15, 2020last_img read more
