first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (May 30, 2015)–Argentine-bred Catch a Flight attended the early pace and outdueled favored Moreno late to take Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 Californian Stakes at Santa Anita by a half length under Gary Stevens. Trained by Richard Mandella, Catch a Flight got 1 1/8 miles in 1:47.73 and stamped himself as one of the top contenders for the Grade I, mile and a quarter Gold Cup at Santa Anita on June 27.Breaking from post position seven in a field of eight three year olds and up, Catch a Flight sat a close third behind Big Cazanova and Moreno, wheeled three-wide at the top of the lane and put the favorite away well inside the sixteenth pole.“Moreno was pretty sluggish leaving the gate and I out-broke him by about a half length,” said Stevens. “On paper and knowing these two horses’ records, it looked like a match race between the two of them and that’s how I wanted to ride it. It worked out because Big Cazanova went up there and kept Moreno occupied down the backside but they were running slow enough fractions for these kinds of horses.“It looked like a match race and it was a match race until inside the eighth pole. Ever since his first win here (a 1 1/8 miles allowance on Feb. 13), he’s shown me a lot of tenacity and it was just a question of if he was fast enough to win. He’s just now starting to figure out American racing. I think he’s still improving and I don’t think we’ve seen the best of him yet.”The second choice at 2-1, Catch a Flight paid $6.60, $3.20 and $2.80.Owned by Haras Santa Maria de Araras, Inc., Catch a Flight, a 5-year-old horse by Giant’s Causeway, followed up on a three quarter length win in the Grade III Precisionist Stakes at Santa Anita on May 2 and collected his ninth overall win from 15 starts. With the winner’s take of $120,000, he increased his earnings to $393,239.“When Gary goosed him at the quarter pole, he responded pretty quickly,” said Mandella, who has now sent Catch a Flight out to three wins from five stateside starts. “Gary knows him well enough. I didn’t try to tell him how to ride him…This was a step forward. The time of the race was good and he beat Moreno. Every step he’s made had been forward. We’ll look at the Gold Cup here next.”Trained by Eric Guillot and ridden by Cornelio Velasquez, Moreno came off a rousing two length win in the Grade II, 1 1/8 miles Charles Town Classic April 18, defeating top rated older horse Shared Belief.“My horse, I gave him every chance and he stopped today,” said Velasquez. “The other horse, Catch a Flight, he ran good. My horse, he ran okay.”Off as the 6-5 favorite, Moreno finished 3 ½ lengths in front of Hard Aces and paid $2.60 and $2.40.Ridden by Victor Espinoza, Hard Aces rallied from off the pace to finish third, 1 ¼ lengths in front of Blue Tone. Off at 9-1, Hard Aces paid $3.60 to show.Fractions on the race were 22.86, 46.94, 1:10.51 and 1:35.05.First post time on Sunday at Santa Anita is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m. –30–last_img read more

Furious Pep lays into refs after Sane horror tackle

first_imgFA Cup Furious Guardiola lays into referees after Sane horror tackle Goal Last updated 1 year ago 02:38 1/29/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Leroy Sane Getty FA Cup Manchester City Premier League Cardiff City v Manchester City Cardiff City The Citizens boss was not happy despite advancing into the fifth round with a routine win, after seeing Joe Bennett injure one of his stars Pep Guardiola was left furious at the standard of refereeing in Manchester City’s FA Cup win as he predicted Leroy Sane would spend three weeks on the sidelines after a horror tackle. Goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling saw City safely past Cardiff City in Sunday’s fourth round match in the Welsh capital. That victory was soured, however, by Sane’s withdrawal before half time following a nasty studs-up challenge perpetrated by Joe Bennett.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Bennett only received a booking for the hit before later seeing red for a separate offence, and Pep – who was spotted having a heated exchange with officials at full-time – believes Lee Mason was far too lenient in his refereeing.”I don’t understand the (Bernardo) goal that we didn’t get, but that is okay. We can accept that. But they have to protect the players,” Pep told reporters after the final whistle.  “They [refs] are there to protect the players. When there is fault, there is fault, and when it is dangerous, it is dangerous.”We will see [Sane’s injury] tomorrow, he could be out for two, three, four weeks.”It was not just Guardiola who was concerned by Cardiff’s harsh tackling either, with the German national team having taken to Twitter at half time to ask the Welsh side to be more careful with their tackling ahead of Die Mannschaft’s participation in the World Cup.last_img read more

Sexual harassment Ali asks Meesha to face the court

first_imgLahore: A year after singer Meesha Shafi accused Ali Zafar of sexual harassment, the singer-actor recently urged her to face the court as her case against him was dismissed. He even drew a parallel between her and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai. Ali wrote on Twitter: “Meesha Shafi’s case against me has been dismissed alongside the appeal made against the dismissal. The case in the court is my case against her to pay for damages that her false statement has caused me, which naturally she is trying to run away from.” Also Read – ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ has James Cameron’s fingerprints all over it: Arnold Schwarzenegger”I have also filed a case against all the fake and other accounts being used to run a campaign against me on social media. I have been quiet about all this for a year while thousands of disgusting tweets were posted against me, like a campaign every time a big event comes. But it’s time to expose the truth via due process of law for which I urge the FIA to take strict legal action. Meesha had called out the singer last year, accusing him of sexual assault.last_img read more

Keyshawn Johnson Offers Advice To Santonio Holmes

Sixteen years ago, Keyshawn Johnson was the No. 1 pick of the NFL Draft, landing in New York with the Jets. He was young and brash and before he was done he penned a book called, “Just Throw Me The Damn Ball.”To say Johnson was mouthy would be an understatement. So it was ironic – and pretty cool, too – that a much more mature Johnson spent some of the Jets’ first  day of training camp to lend advice to the Jets’ current mouthy receive, Santonio Holmes.“It was a big brother-to-little brother talk,” Holmes said. “He was just teaching me to be cordial to everybody and to understand what gift I have to this football team and learning how to utilize it.”Johnson, at Jets camp working for ESPN, figured he catch Holme’s ear because the receiver lately has been spewing nothing but venom. Since the last game of disappointing last season, when he did not catch a pass and was benched, Holmes has blasted quarterback Mark Sanchez, questioned the two-quarterback system of Sanchez and Tim Tebow and generally been Mr. Grinch.Immaturity is what Johnson attributed to Holmes’ penchant to taking on anyone in his path.“All eyes are you,” said Johnson, relating what he told Holmes. “If you can do it — and you’ve done it before — you can write your ticket.”Holmes was a lightening rod and disruption last year, criticizing Sanchez and the offensive line, making a bad season worse. Johnson was not acting as if he were Dr. Phil, but he did seem to believe Holmes will comport himself differently this year.“He’ll grow up,” Johnson said. “He’ll get there. I’m not worried.”Already, Holmes contends and Sanchez have become close and are looking forward to a big season.“That was last year, man,” Holmes said. “Let’s move on.” read more
