Classy River Boyne Rallies To Take Grade III, $100,000 Thunder Road Stakes By 2 ½ Widening Lengths Under Cedillo

first_imgCLASSY RIVER BOYNE RALLIES TO TAKE GRADE III, $100,000 THUNDER ROAD STAKES BY 2 ½ WIDENING LENGTHS UNDER CEDILLO; TRAINED BY MULLINS, HE GETS MILE ON TURF IN 1:33.78ARCADIA, Calif.

He needed this…He got it done.  We got a little class relief today and I’ve been lucky with this jock. He’s ridden three horses for me and we’ve won all three.“He’s not the kind of horse to run off.  He needed to be in contention and not give him a lot to do. Today, Abel had him sitting in a good spot and it looked like he had a lot of energy, so when he split horses, he got it done.”Most recently third in an ungraded one mile turf stakes at Turf Paradise Jan. 11, River Boyne, who was winless in his last eight starts, was off at 9-2 in a field of nine older horses and paid $11.60, $6.60 and $3.60.“We were able to split horses there turning for home and we got lucky,” said Cedillo.  “The horse to my outside (eventual last place finisher Take the One O One) was tired and he drifted (out) a little and we got through.  Jeff told me to warm him up good and put him close to the lead and he was pulling the whole way.”Owned by Red Baron’s Barn, LLC and Rancho Temescal, LLC, River Boyne picked up $60,000 for the win, increasing his earnings to $971,918.  In notching his fifth stakes win, he’s now 23-8-5-4 overall.The longest shot in the field, Camino Del Paraiso flew late at the rail to finish second by a nose over True Valour.  Ridden by Tiago Pereira, Camino Del Paraiso, off at 50-1, paid $33.80 and $13.40.Irish-bred True Valour, who was part of a five-horse blanket finish for the minors, was third by a nose in front of Kingly and paid $4.60 to show with Andrea Atzeni up.Fractions on the race were 23.06, 46.73, 1:10.30 and 1:22.12.last_img read more

He was important in that situation.“My father played in this stadium against Wolves in the Uefa Cup as a goalkeeper.“He was always telling me a goalkeeper of a top team has to be different to the others because you don’t have ten saves, you have one.“By the time the one comes, the magic hands have to be there and Paulo did it for us.”’WOLVES HAVE TOP-FOUR POTENTIAL’Tottenham looked on the ropes after Adama Traore’s thunderbolt chalked off Lucas Moura’s terrific opener.But they held firm against an exciting Wolves side who Mourinho feels are genuine top-six contenders under Nuno Espirito Santo.The former Chelsea and Manchester United chief added: “Wolves are with us and Chelsea, United and Arsenal fighting for top six and smelling the top four.“They can beat anyone home and away.

Lions desperate to overcome history against Hurricanes

first_imgThe Lions have lost their last eight games home and away to the New Zealand side, including a 20-3 defeat in last year’s Super Rugby final in Wellington, and a humbling 50-17 home loss in the 2016 regular season.That heavy defeat was the last time the South Africans were beaten at their Ellis Park fortress, amassing a winning run of 14 games since, that almost came to an end against the Sharks in the quarter-finals last weekend.Coach Johan Ackermann, who heads to English Premiership side Gloucester at the end of the Super Rugby campaign, has selected an unchanged side from that narrow 23-21 win but is without the dynamism and leadership of injured captain Warren Whiteley, who might have been invaluable in such a crucial clash.”The Hurricanes are a team that play in your face,” Ackermann said.”They like to put teams under pressure and they did that to us last year, so hopefully we’ll handle that pressure better this time.”Maybe we won’t run as much as we did a year ago, but rather kick better tactically. We must also remember it’s a year later and the teams have changed since we last met here.”The Hurricanes have been able to select hooker and captain Dane Coles from the start for what will be his 100th Super Rugby cap in one of two changes from the side that defeated the ACT Brumbies 35-16 in their quarter-final in Canberra.Coles returned off the bench in that win having been missing since March after suffering a concussion against the Otago Highlanders.”It will be a massive honour to join those players in reaching a milestone that I never thought I would achieve,” Coles said in a press release from the Hurricanes.This year’s Super Rugby joint top try-scorer Vince Aso also returns from a groin injury at centre, which has had a domino effect through the backline.Aso takes the place of Jordie Barrett, who moves to fullback in place of Nehe Milner-Skudder. The latter has shifted to the right wing, which has sent South African-born Wes Goosen out onto the left wing in the place of Julian Savea, who drops to the bench.Victory for the Lions will see them host the Super Rugby final against the Canterbury Crusaders or the Waikato Chiefs, who meet in the other semi-final in Christchurch on Saturday.last_img read more

Cristiano has returned

first_imgWhen last November 10 Cristiano left the field, very angry, in the minute 55 of Juventus-Milan, barely wearing five goals in 12 days of Serie A and many began to wonder if the twilight of the Portuguese had arrived. It was a big mistake: the November selection stop woke up the beast, which has since become unstoppable. Christian marked tres goals before Lithuania, one before Luxembourg, then he returned to Turin and he hasn’t stopped scoring so many: he has ten in the last eight clashes from bianconero (nine in Serie A, one in the Champions League), and adds six consecutive days of calcium ‘wetting’. A goal before Sassuolo, Lazio, Sampdoria Y Rome, two against Udinese and the hat-trick with the Cagliari, the second of Juventino after the historic night with Atleti.In this grade, Cristiano takes 16 goals in 23 appearances and on Sunday he added another record to his immense medal winners: as Opta pointed out, John hansen, until now, he had been the only one to achieve 14 goals in the first 19 days from A series with the shirt of the Juventus in more than one season (he did it in the 1950-51, 1951-52 and 1952-53). Cristiano achieved these numbers in his first two years of bianconero: his exceptional moment He has returned the untouchable condition for Maurizio Sarri, which has aligned him at the start in every game since December 1, never replacing him. The technician it’s hard to use the trident, so next to it alternatesn Higuain and Dybala, that Sunday was annoying when the Pipita took its place. The triumph against Rome handed him over to the vecchia signora the winter title (two points of advantage over Inter), closing one almost perfect first lap, with 48 points: “We are back to the site that belongs to us, at the top of the rankings, “wrote the Portuguese in their social networks after the game Of course, the other team of the Italian capital, Lazio, was responsible for staining this month with the first league defeat of the course (3-1, December 7) and, above all, with the k.o. in the final of the Super Cup, that the biancocelesti they raised in riad with another 3-1.TO Cristiano and Juve, however, there are still many challenges: morning, before him Udinese, will start their adventure in the Italian Cup, the fight for Scudetto with the nerazzurri from Conte follows red hot and, above all, in Turin they want to break the badge of the Champions League. The Lyon, rival of the eighths, invites to be optimistic for the classification: with such a Christian, dream about Istanbul It is mandatory.last_img read more

Setién does not reserve anyone and goes with everything to Leganés

first_imgFinally, the Albanian striker of the subsidiary who trained with the team in the previous one, Rey Manaj, has not been taken either.Thus, the list of 18 called for the match against Leganés (19 hours) corresponding to the round of 16 of the Cup is as follows: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Pique, Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Arthur, Messi, Lenglet, Griezmann, Sunrise, Sergi Roberto, From Jong, Vidal, Umtiti, Junior, Pain, Fati Y Collado. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 30, 2020 If in the match against Ibiza he left Messi, Piqué and Sergio Busquets in Barcelona, ​​on this occasion against Leganés, Quique Setién is not willing to give the rival any advantage. Perhaps the experience lived in the islands was so agonizing – a victory practically at the last minute and after having to overcome the goal of disadvantage – that he has now decided to put all the meat on the grill. In fact, the Cantabrian coach has not reserved any heavyweight for the game this afternoon at the Camp Nou, summoning a total of 18 players, of which only three are from the subsidiary: Iñaki Peña, Ansu Fati and Collado.The rest, that is, a total of 15 players are from the first team. Only Moussa Wagué has been left out by technical decision, which has been systematically ruled out since the arrival of Setién. Nor is Ousmane Dembélé, who although he is already training with the group, he wants to be very cautious with the player to avoid relapses. Another casualty is the Brazilian goalkeeper Neto, who is recovering from a sprained ankle, and the one already known by all to be long-distance, that of striker Luis Suárez.last_img read more

Barça asks for the time to beat a Getafe without final hit

first_imgFC Barcelona won this Saturday 2-1 against Getafe CF, thanks to the goals of Antoine Griezmann and Sergi Roberto, in a match corresponding to day 24 of LaLiga Santander and which resolved the Catalans before the break, while his rival accused lack of spark after cutting distances with a target of Angel Rodriguez.This result put Barça with 52 points, tied in the coliderato with Real Madrid. For its part, the Azulón team saw its good league streak truncated and took 42 points in the third provisional place, in the absence of Sevilla playing against Espanyol during the Sunday round of meetings.The duel of benches between Quique Setién and José Bordalás, with past quarrels and apparently forgotten, was finally taken by the Blaugrana coach. But Setién barely enjoyed Leo Messi’s loose flashes, as vanishing points in an insipid match and not without controversy served from the VAR.The first 20 minutes made it clear that Getafe knows how to deal with adversaries of all kinds. The back lines close together, constant help in each marking and fast players in each band; That usual recipe put Marc-André ter Stegen in trouble, at least a couple of times.He even scored the visiting team first, by Allan Nyom. At the exit of a corner, his teammate Jorge Molina finished back in the first post and Ter Stegen deflected the ball, although leaving it to pleasure in the small area. The ’12’ of Getafe appeared to rivet the bottom of the net, although he had previously dodged Samuel Umtiti.Despite the fact that the main referee, Guillermo Cuadra Fernández, decreed the goal as valid in the first instance, he ended up canceling it by interpreting in the television repetition that Nyom had committed a foul in said struggle, due to a swipe with Umtiti’s shoulder.The locals quickly shook off the scare, inaugurating the score. Umtiti raised the play on the left side and passed the ball to Messi, who from the front of the area leaked at the first touch an assist to Griezmann. The French striker, with a subtle and also first-handed left-footed shot, ‘stung’ the ball before the rival goalkeeper’s exit. The withdrawal of Jordi Alba, replaced by Junior Firpo because of an injury to the adductor of the right leg, was not being noticed until then. Not surprisingly, Barça extended its advantage in the 39th minute, when Sergi Roberto finished a low pass in goal and from his own Junior Firpo band, active by the usual lane of Jordi Alba.There, the battle reached a point of anesthesia. Only the usual, Messi, stretched the fans of Camp Nou right on the edge of rest. A header from him, after a center pumped to the second post, was repelled by goalkeeper David Soria with a pretty stretched foot changed.Angel always meets Upon returning from changing rooms, the general dynamic was being the same until Ángel Rodríguez entered the field. Virtually everything was summed up in the Junior Firpo race without a prize on the left side, the leaked passes to nowhere by Messi and the frustrated unchecking of Griezmann.Bordalás’ plan was to send his pupils to attack, neglecting the defensive zone. But he didn’t care, since Getafe is rubbing shoulders this season with the ‘roosters’ and a goal would cheer the trick. Said and done, Angel scored 2-1 by flying in an unorthodox way a center of Jaime Mata from the right wing.Between the two central culé, and taking advantage of the fact that Gerard Piqué had miscalculated the jump for clearance, the ‘9’ blue put fear in the body at Camp Nou. A striker intended by Barça, at the expense of being allowed to sign a substitute for Ousmane Dembélé, thereby caused a stroke.To make matters worse, Angel himself had the tie in his boots, topping down a side and quite distant foul. Ter Stegen failed to try to catch the ball, but reacted immediately to prevent it from crossing the goal line; also, he touched the ball a third time, preventing Mata from pushing what would have been 2-2.The answer came with two Griezmann shots, but both deflected and leaving uncertainty until the final whistle. The first of them, after the nth low pass of Junior Firpo, sent him to the clouds; and the second was the definition of a backlash, executing a right too crossed in front of David Soria. The Blaugranas asked for an hour before an opponent without further hitting the conclusion.DATA SHEETFC BARCELONA: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Umtiti, Jordi Alba (Junior Firpo, min. 22); Busquets, Arthur (Rakitic, min. 75), De Jong; Messi, Griezmann and Ansu Fati (Vidal, min. 85).GETAFE CF: Soria; Nyom, Etxeita, Djené, Olivera (Kenedy, min. 52); Etebo (Amath, min. 68), Arambarri, Maksimovic, Cucurella; Mata and Molina (Angel, min. 52).– GOALS:1-0, min. 33: Griezmann.2-0, min. 39: Sergi Roberto.2-1, min. 66: Angel.–ÁRBITRO: Cuadra Fernández (C.Balear).
