(March 31, 2019)–With a cascade of late money stamping him the 6-5 post time favorite, Nick Alexander’s homebred Pee Wee Reese set sizzling fractions en route to powerful 1 ¼ length win in Sunday’s $100,000 Sensational Star Stakes at Santa Anita.  Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke and trained by Phil D’Amato, Pee Wee Reese, named for the late Dodger Hall of Fame shortstop, got 6 ½ furlongs in 1:10.84, which was just 11/100’s of a second off the track record.Breaking from the far outside, “Pee Wee” shot to the early lead and although longshot Minister of Soul tried to pressure him early, he left his primary rival, Eddie Haskell in his wake at the dirt crossing turning for home in registering his third stakes win while remaining unbeaten in three hillside assignments.“He’s a cool horse,” said Alexander, who is known to millions of Southern California radio listeners as the owner of Nick Alexander Imports, who’s slogan is “Nick can’t say no.”  “He’s had high suspensories (tendon issues) pretty much his whole life (explaining a seven-month absence from the races).“The Cal-bred program is the only thing that keeps us in business.  Between the maiden bonuses, and being protected in the first allowance conditions, being able to run against nothing but Cal-breds, the breeders awards, the stallion awards…It makes a difference between profit and loss every year.”The first choice in a field of six California-bred or sired horses, Pee Wee Reese paid $4.60, $2.60 and $2.10.A 6-year-old full horse by Tribal Rule, out of Alexander’s Unbridled Belle mare Bluegrass Belle, Pee Wee Reese is now 14-7-2-1 and with the winner’s share of $60,000, he increased his bankroll to $412,901.“On paper, it looked like there was a ton of speed,” said D’Amato.  “I told Drayden to help him out of there and if he popped on top, to go with it and he got him out of there beautifully…Drayden said he was pricking his ears out there and just doing it really comfortably.  I think he’s a good miler, but down the hill, he’s a force to be reckoned with.”The second choice at 3-2 with Kent Desormeaux up, Eddie Haskell appeared to have the winner measured three sixteenths of a mile from home, but couldn’t get on terms with him at any point.  Second by 1 ¼ lengths, he paid $2.80 and $2.20.Last after the first half mile, Eddie Haskell was easily second, finishing four lengths in front of Brandothebartender.  Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Eddie Haskell paid $2.10 to show.Fractions on the race, set by the winner, were 21.15, 42.85 and 1:04.87.The Sensational Star is part of the Golden State Series, which is sponsored by the CTBA to benefit California-bred or sired horses.last_img read more

As you could see, she was very comfortable and she won pretty easy today. Yes, I’m glad to hear she’s going to run next year. I think she can be a Grade I mare, no question. I’ve ridden her quite a bit and she’s faced some nice fillies. Neil has her in great shape now and I’m looking forward to riding her in the future.“She broke sharp, put herself in the race and she is really easy to ride. She breezed well and gave me a really good kick turning for home.”On Vasilika’s retirement: “Yesterday was the last time that I rode Vasilika. I was so busy that I didn’t realize it until I went back to the Jock’s Room that it would be the last time. I want to see her before she leaves.”     How many times have you tied with someone as co-leading rider?“I think this is the third time.”TRAINER QUOTESNEIL DRYSDALE, TOINETTE, WINNER:  “She’s had a late year.  We discovered she had an infected tooth and we had to remove it. Following that, we discovered she had another pocket of infection and we had to treat that, so we had to take our time with her. She’s come around very nicely and yes, we’re hoping for big things from her next year.” NOTES: The winning owners are Ken Baca, Joseph and Lynne Hudson.last_img read more

Foul play: Swedish footballer Adam Lindin sent off for farting

first_imgPershagens SK’s Adam Lindin told newspaper Länstidningen Södertälje that it was the strangest thing he had ever experienced on a football field.The player had already been booked once, but he got his second yellow card when he released wind which he says had arisen from an upset stomach.Linden said he was shocked by the decision and confronted the referee about whether farting is allowed. He got a simple “no” in response.His theory?Maybe he thought I farted in my hand and threw it at him.This is a practice colloquially known as “cupcaking”.The referee reportedly clarified that he thought Linden had been deliberately trying to provoke another player.If you’re wondering how the referee managed to hear the accompanying noise over the roar of a crowd, this didn’t happen at the Euros or Copa America – it took place in Sweden’s seventh division in a game between Pershagens SK and Järna SK’s reserve team.FIFA’s laws about fouls and misconduct make no specific mention of “farting”, “flatulence” or “wind”.However, the rules of the game do leave room for referees to make decisions about behaviour which just doesn’t smell right: cautions can be given for actions which show “a lack of respect for the game”, while “a player who uses excessive force must be sent off”.”It was a crappy game, it was a crappy judgment,” Pershagens SK posted on Facebook after the game, which they lost.last_img read more

The Lightning resolves in Lasesarre with a stroke of aim

first_imgIn the second act, the Lightning, with Paco Jémez in the stands, assumed the baton before a Barakaldo reply, which was not resigned to his fate. The idea of ​​going round and playing a jackpot planned in the environment, waiting for the rival to relax thinking about LaLiga or that all the fish was sold. In a free kick by Sergio García, who has a glove on his left foot, the leather strolled through the small area without finding a finisher. The team of Hernán Pérez liked spurred by the “yes you can” chanted by the local fans and threw themselves into an open grave, with a triple occasion in which the ball did not want to enter. A goal annulled to Piovaccari by game of play tempered the spirits, which Sergio García recovered with the direct launch of a distant foul and a header from Delgado that blocked Morro. Barakaldo fell with his boots on Rayo on an exciting afternoon in Lasesarre, where two goals from Pozo and Piovaccari Madrid sneaked into the next phase of the Cup. The Biscayns deserved much more for thrust, bravery and chances, especially in the second half, but the aim in the last meters of the team of greater category was definitive. There was an excellent atmosphere in the manufacturing field, with twinning of rocks before the stake and the sun shone on Sunday cup football.The stake started with a strong shot with a first shot by Saul, who aborted Rabanillo, and Olaizola in the opposite goal, high, center to the second post of Juan Delgado. The Barakaldo resorting to high blood pressure, giving a sense of poise for what was going on in his post. El Rayo, with Montiel at the controls and Pozo putting the talent, tried to take the initiative. At 11 minutes, Sergio Garcia kicks Julen López off at the hands of Morro. In these that in a rayista advance, center from the left of Saúl and José Pozo, coming from behind by speed surprised the defense and Rabanillo to put the 0-1 in the luminous. Gradually the best quality of the franjirrojos was imposed, touching the ball and taking over the wide area.The Barakaldo tried again with the break-ups of Delgado and his passes back edged to the right side that Olaizola, who for the second time, was not able to convert entering the crescent of the area. In a draw, he chewed in the stands. El Rayo, quiet, had a cross shot of Alvaro before the break. The uncertainty of the marker left the Barakaldo alive, aguerrido and closing pass lines with Carles Marc and Doncel inside and the sides Agirrezabala and Galán unfolding to prevent the advances by speed of Saúl and Álvaro. The factory deserved a minimum draw. Hernán Pérez gave entry to the new signing of Castellón, Jairo Cárcaba, to give more mordant above. Those of Jémez, faithful to their style, left behind with the ball cracked, regardless of local pressure. It gave entrance to Mario Suarez to hold the spinal cord. And when they were worse, Piovaccari sentenced with 0-2 in a fast backlash imposing the logic of football that whoever fails to pay.————————————————– ——-Match file:Barakaldo: Radish; Agirrezabala, Gándara, Julen López, Galán; Carles Marc, Doncel (Algarra, min. 79), Olaizola (Óscar Fdez, min. 63), Sergio García; Delgado and Adrián Hernández (Cárcaba, min. 63).Vallecano Ray: Nose; Tito (Milic, min. 85), Saveljich, Martín, Luna; Well (Andrés, min. 69), Óscar, Montiel, Saúl; Piovaccari and Álvaro (Suárez, min. 80).Goals: 0-1: Well (min. 14); 0-2; Piovaccari (min. 82).Referee: From the Ramos Fountain, Castilian-Lions.

Hispanics suffer to grab first place against Croatia and remain unbeaten before the semifinals

first_imgThe Spanish handball team did not fall into speculation and concluded the second phase as the first group, so it will be measured next Friday in the semifinals with Slovenia, after drawing this Wednesday 22-22 with Croatia.An agonized tie that nobody could foresee after the six goals of advantage (13-19) with which he came to count at the start of the second half.But when everything seemed more favorable for Spain, those of Jordi Ribera, conditioned by the arbitration, collapsed in attack, chaining up to eleven minutes without scoring, which allowed Croatia to stand ahead on the scoreboard (22-21) two minutes for the conclusionA time in which Spain, aware that the match was worth it to seal the first place, pulled ex officio to add a tie in a match in which he never entered into speculation and went from the beginning to win.Of course, without giving up its rotation policy, as the Spanish coach had already made clear in the previous one, who gave start players to players such as the Dani Sarmiento center or the Adrià Figueras pivot.But what did not change was the philosophy of the Spanish team, which remained faithful to its elaborate style of play, in which no one ever doubts in taking another pass until finding the best partner for the goal.It was confirmed by the five different players who scored for the Spanish team in the first fifteen minutes of the game.On the contrary that in the Balkan team, in which the central Igor Karacic, who signed six of the eleven goals that Croatia scored in the first half, completely monopolized the attack of those of Lino Cervar.Spain did not find an antidote to the movements of Karacic, which wreaked havoc in the Spanish rear with its circulations from left to right, until it went from the 6-0 defense with which it started the fight to a more aggressive system 5-1.A change that did not occur until well over the equator of the first half, when the “Hispanics” were at a disadvantage of two goals on the scoreboard (8-6), fruit more of the exclusions with which they were punished than of the good Croatian game. Photo: Reuters The picture changed completely with the presence of Alex Dujshebaev in the outpost, from where he prevented the trajectories of Karacic and caused numerous losses of the Balkan ball.It was the fuel that Spain needed to start a comeback that allowed Jordi Ribera to go to rest ahead in the scoreboard (11-12) with a last goal from Julen Aginagalde, the ninth different player by the Spanish team that scored In the first half.That data corroborated the breadth of resources of the Spanish team, compared to the most limited in Croatia, especially if, as happened on Wednesday, the Balkans cannot count on Luka Cindric, who, reluctantly, did not even get off the bench.Limitations that were clear at the start of the second half, when Spain gave a point of intensity to its defense.A circumstance that led to the takeoff of the Spanish team, which, in a seen and unseen, led by a spectacular Alex Dujshebaev both in attack and defense, was located at ten minutes of the second half with a six-goal advantage (13- 19).But if there is an invariable rule in handball it is that Croatia can never be left for dead, and more if, as in this case, the colleges do their part.The Lithuanians Gatelis and Mazeika did not seem to like that the game was resolved so soon, a circumstance that they decided to correct with an unequal criterion when sanctioning the passive game.Thus, while the attacks of Croatia could be prolonged, those of Spain could barely last a few seconds, which led to the offensive collapse of the Spanish team, which chained up to eleven minutes without seeing goal.It was not missed by the Balkan team, spurred by the thousands of Croatian fans who filled the stands, to turn around the contest two minutes to the conclusion (22-21) with a 6-0 run.Spain finally managed to break that drought with a penalty goal from Aleix Gómez that left Croatia with the last possession to win and achieve the first group place.But the Balkans, despite attacking with seven players, failed to seize their last chance and saw how the final launch of Domagoh Duvnjak crashed into a post.– Data sheet:22 – Croatia: Sego; Horvat (2, 1p), Stepancic (2), Mamic (2), Duvnjak (2, 1p), Mandic (-) and Karacic (10) -initial team- Asanin (ps), Maric (-), Hrstic (- ), Sarac (-), Musa (-), Cindric (-), Brozovic (1), Matanovic (-) and Sipic (3)22 – Spain: Corrals; Solé (2), Maqueda (1), Sarmiento (1), Cañellas (-), Ariño (2) and Figueras (1) -initial team- Pérez de Vargas (ps), Raúl Entrerríos (4), Alex Dujshebaev (6 ), Aginagalde (1), Goñi (-), Morros (-), Aleix Gómez (4, 2p), Gideon Guardiola (-) and Dani Dujshebaev (-)Marker every five minutes: 2-3, 5-5, 6-5, 8-6, 10-8 and 11-12 (Rest); 11-15, 13-19, 14-20, 18-21, 21-21 and 22-22 (Final)Referees: Gatelis and Mazeika (LTU).

Gutierrez: “If someone finds an image of me in a nightclub in Almeria, I submit my resignation”

first_imgUnlike other of his appearances in the press room, José María Gutiérrez barely made self-criticism after claudicating before Huesca and pointed again to the arbitration collective. “They are things that are hurting us all. The reality in recent games is that the arbitration issue is punishing us a lot. In the first part we have not entered strong, without competing in the first 30 minutes. Then everything has been more complicated, although in the second half the team has reacted. There have been rare decisions of the referee and a clear penalty that he has not reviewed, “says the Madrid player, expelled at the end of the match.” I will talk to him and that’s why he expels me, “he explains.Torrejón de Ardoz also shot at video arbitration. “Tell us why the VAR enters Soria and they take away two points and here they won’t even look at it. It is happening every day with the VAR, not only in First, also in Second. Two weeks before there was a quiet play that was a penalty and today, no. That makes you doubt, “he says, sure of that conspiracy theory spoken of in Almeria land week and week as well.” It was not just the goal of Mikel Rico, the referee knew what field he was in and the objectives of each one, in that sense he has favored Huesca very much, with many strange things, “he continues after the team’s worst encounter since he is in charge. José María Gutiérrez also had words for the hoax of the week, in which a web portal said that the former Real Madrid was in the spotlight of the sheikh after starring in a party with his players. “If someone finds an image of me in a nightclub in Almeria, I submit my resignation and return all the money Almeria has paid me. I have a clear conscience, little more to say. It is a rumor without evidence that has gone viral throughout Spain and has gone everywhere. It is the burden that I have been being Guti and a known person, but life has made me strong and those things are not going to sink me, “he rightly asserts.“It has been difficult days for me and my family. That label of my past returns to peek again. I have a clear conscience, my life is very orderly. I am with my son, I go to work and go home to sleep. No I have time for nothing, “continues the defense of the serious statements Almeria coach, who said he felt calm. “I am calm because the work of the players is being good. Things that whipped us before, now does not whistle us. They are external circumstances that do not allow us to win and the team I think has deserved the draw, “he expires.Your future, in the airAfter fourteen days at the head of the rojiblanco team, the future of José María Gutiérrez is in the air after the latest results and the level shown by Almeria. He has missed eleven of the last twelve points, claudicating on two consecutive occasions at the Stadium of the Mediterranean Games. Since the exhibition in Lugo, Almeria is not being a shadow of what it was, which causes Turki Al-Sheikh, who is not a friend of patience, to be reflecting on his dismissal, which could occur in the next few hours.last_img read more
