HEAVILY FAVORED ASHLEYLUVSSUGAR EARNS WELL-TIMED HALF LENGTH WIN IN $250,000 CALIFORNIA CUP TURF CLASSIC UNDER PRAT; EURTON TRAINEE GETS 1 1/8 MILES IN 1:46.43

first_imgPRESENTED BY CITY NATIONAL BANK, TURF CLASSIC IS ONE OF FIVE RACES FOR GOLDEN STATE SERIES HORSES ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 28, 2017)–In a thrilling stretch drive, favored Ashleyluvssugar overhauled What a View to prevail by a half length in Saturday’s $250,000 California Cup Turf Classic at Santa Anita. Ridden to perfection by Flavien Prat and conditioned by Peter Eurton, the 6-year-old California-bred gelding by Game Plan got a mile and one eighth in 1:46.43.As expected, What a View went to the lead under Tyler Baze and held a two length advantage mid-way around the far turn, but Prat stepped on the gas approaching the quarter pole, and it was “game-on” from there to the wire, with Ashleyluvssugar gaining the advantage in the final fifty yards.“He got a perfect ride,” said Eurton. “I think they (Prat and the horse) are just getting to know each other. I think ‘Flavvy’ was just a little bit nervous in the paddock, but the kid is so good, so good. Other than telling him the horse likes to be outside, I didn’t say anything. That was a nice, easy lead that What a View got. I didn’t think we’d get by him for a minute there, but ‘Ashley’s’ got a lot of class.”Owned by his breeders, Sharon Alesia, Bran Jam Stable and Joe Ciaglia, multiple graded stakes winning Ashleyluvssugar, who had been idle since finishing second in the Grade II Hollywood Turf Cup at Del Mar on Nov. 25, was off at even money in a field of nine older horses bred or sired in California and paid $4.00, $2.60 and $2.20.In securing his ninth win from 20 starts, “Ashley,” who is out of the Urgent Request mare, Ashely’s Folley, picked up $150,000 for the win, increasing his earnings to $1,157,504.“I had a good trip,” said Prat. “It came really easy. Once he gets the lead he doesn’t want to open up, but he knows he has to keep at least a head in front.”Tenacious in defeat, What a View set fractions on the “firm” turf of 23.77, 47.58, 1:11.56 and 1:34.74. Off at 3-1, he finished second by a length and a half and paid $3.80 and $3.40.Third turning for home, longshot Ward ‘n Jerry ran gamely for third, holding sway by a half length over He Will. Ridden by Stewart Elliott, Ward ‘n Jerry was off at 60-1 and paid $11.40 to show.last_img read more

Clarke demands respect for Albion after victory over Chelsea

first_imgWest Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke said it would be unfair to put his side’s 2-1 win over Chelsea down to the visitors making changes to their team.Juan Mata, Oscar and Ramires were all left out of the starting line-up for the game.“It would be wrong to talk about leaving one or two perceived big players out and not how well we did,” the Blues legend said after his side’s 2-1 win.“They have quality players; they leave some out and they put some in.“Teams have to rest players. They have to travel all around the world and playing a lot is difficult for players, especially creative players.”See also:Chelsea slump to defeat at West 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Changes coming? NBA commissioner wants draft rules amended

One of the advantages that could come from raising the age minimum to 20 would be that players may be more ready for the pro game. Silver said he has talked to many veteran players, who have a sense that the 19-year-olds “are not coming in game-ready.”Other highlights in Silver’s annual Finals media availability included:All-Star in CharlotteADVERTISEMENT BREAKING: Cop killed, 11 hurt in Misamis Oriental grenade blast “I’ve known Steve for probably close to 25 years and my heart goes out to him,” Silver said. “As he and I talked about, it puts this all in perspective.”Kerr hasn’t coached Golden State — 12-0 heading into its third straight Finals against LeBron James and the Cavs — since Game 2 of the first round against Portland. He underwent a procedure to repair a spinal fluid leak on May 5 at Duke University but said he is still ailing and in debilitating pain.Chinese playersSilver said it’s frustrating to him that basketball-crazed China does not have a player in the league.“There’s probably more basketball being played in China than anywhere else in the world, and more NBA basketball is being watched in China than anywhere else in the world,” Silver said. “It’s something I’ve talked to Yao Ming a lot about.

Sufficient, is a tough … the answer is yes. They made incremental progress. And I felt, in part, there is a role that the league can play in demonstrating what equality looks like to a community.”Silver said taking All-Star weekend to Charlotte could serve as an example of what it looks like to be non-discriminatory, “and my hope is that by setting that example we can unify people and that the state will follow.”Phil JacksonSilver said he did not consider disciplining New York Knicks President Phil Jackson for comments suggesting that Knicks star Carmelo Anthony should be traded.Jackson’s comments raised the ire of the players’ union, which pointed out that players risk being fined if they lobby for trades publicly.“There’s never been a history in this league of fining a team and disciplining a team executive for talking about trading a player,” Silver said.Kerr’s healthSilver met with Golden State coach Steve Kerr before Thursday’s game, and expressed regret for the health issues that are keeping the Warriors’ coach off the sideline. Less than a month away from a draft where about 20 players who completed just one year of college will be welcomed into the league, Silver expects the so-called “one-and-done” rule to be modified — somehow — before too long. But in saying that, Silver also acknowledged that even he isn’t certain what makes the most sense going forward.“My sense is it’s not working for anyone,” Silver said Thursday (Friday Manila time) before Game 1 of the NBA Finals. “It’s not working for the college coaches and athletic directors I hear from. They’re not happy with the current system. And I know our teams aren’t happy either, in part because they don’t necessarily think the players who are coming into the league are getting the kind of training that they would expect to see.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutIt’s been just over a decade since the NBA and the players union agreed on a rule in that says players either need to be 19 years old or be one year removed from high school before being eligible for the draft.

Vine: Buddy Hield’s Clutch Block Of Darrell Davis Helps Send Oklahoma To The Sweet 16

first_imgBuddy Hield blocks Darrell Davis.Vine/Dan LyonsOklahoma’s Buddy Hield is this year’s Big 12 Player of the Year, and for good reason. The junior shooting guard does everything for the Sooners, and in tonight’s Round of 32 game against Dayton, that includes making a crucial block on a fast break lay-up attempt that could have cut the Oklahoma lead to two points. Dayton guard Darrell Davis stole the ball from OU’s Jordan Woodard, and immediately took off for the hoop. As he released the ball, Hield made a fantastic play to reject the shot out of his hand. Instead of a two-point game, Oklahoma was fouled and extended the lead.Oklahoma finished the game with a 72-66 win, and will face Michigan State in the Sweet 16 at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, NY.last_img read more
