CALIFORNIA CUP DERBY STAKES QUOTES-MONDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2019

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESFLAVIEN PRAT, GALILEAN, WINNER: “It was easy; he was traveling well the whole way. Jerry’s other horse in the race, Loud Mouth, was coming from a sprint so it was either him going to the lead, or me. It was going to be one of us. He broke better than me so I sat off the two leaders and when I went to make a move, he responded well.“It’s quite exciting because he’s done everything right so far. Like everyone else though, he needs to improve of course, but it’s exciting to win this time of year. He’s a god 3-year-old.“He relaxed well. In his last race he went to the lead, but today, he had speed to his inside and sat off them and stayed relaxed, was breathing well and made a good move.”TRAINER QUOTESJERRY HOLLENDORFER, GALILEAN, WINNER: “You’re always a little anxious coming off a little bit of a layoff, but he did everything perfect, rated perfectly, and you couldn’t for much more than that. We have a whole bunch of options (for his next race). There are a lot of races everywhere for him and we’re nominated everywhere, so we’ll try to make a good decision as to where to run next.“I don’t think (distance) is an issue. We wanted to take advantage of him being a Cal-bred, take advantage of giving him another race and running here. That’s what we wanted to do and that’s what we did.”                                                        OWNER QUOTESJEFF LIFSON, WEST POINT THOROUGHBREDS, GALILEAN, WINNER: “We pointed for this after he ran so big winning the Los Al race. I don’t think we necessarily were thinking (on duplicating) what California Chrome did; we just wanted to give him one easy enough for his three-year-old start and then see what happened.“What was most important to me was that he had clean air in front of him and wasn’t boxed in. That was my biggest fear. In a small field everybody gets to ride our horse to some degree and that’s always a worry. When he had a clean trip down the backstretch I really was more relived.“Understandably, we have a Hall of Famer (Jerry Hollendorfer) who is calling the shots here and he’s got a great staff as well. My sense is we don’t come back for the San Felipe but that’s just a guess and Jerry’s gonna make the real call there. I think we’ll look for one of those 50-point (Kentucky Derby qualifying) races in March and then maybe come back here in for the Santa Anita Derby or one of those early April races where they have 100 points on the line.“We have some newbies (owners) on this particular horse which is such a cool thing but the best part about this partnership is they are all wonderful people and have a ton of fun.”last_img read more

Goals galore at Anfield, James to find target and Zaha to haunt Arsenal

first_img6 Norwich are among those who are favourites for relegationCredit: ReutersDespite that 0-0 last time out, one thing you can be sure of at Carrow Road is goals. Just ask Aston Villa.United haven’t netted twice yet this season. How barmy is that?We’re taking them to end that run here – but have a play on the 2-2 draw, because this Red Devils group can’t hold onto a lead.The away side are sat on 1999 Premier League goals.Who gets the 2000th? If you really have to go for a goalscorer, Daniel James hasn’t scored since August.The young Welsh flyer hasn’t quite had the rub of the green and will start after an excellent performance against Liverpool – he’s a steal to net anytime at 9/5.SUNSPORT’S BEST BETS:Both teams to score at Carrow Road: 4/7Norwich and United to draw 2-2: 11/1Daniel James to end scoring drought: 9/56 Dan James hasn’t scored since netting against Saints in late AugustCredit: Getty – ContributorLiverpool vs Tottenham – Sunday, 4.30pmIT’s a first re-run of the Champions League final.And that painful June night in Madrid is still raw for Spurs.Jurgen Klopp’s title-chasers dropped their first points of the season last weekend – just as we predicted they would – at Old Trafford.It was a disjointed performance from the Reds who clearly missed the impact of Mo Salah up top.Tottenham visit here in absolutely wretched form and they were lucky to snatch a point against rock-bottom Watford last time out.Creativity is proving a real problem for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who miss the guile of the out-of-form Christian Eriksen and have no real replacement with Gio Lo Celso still injured.But wouldn’t it just be so Spurs for them to go to Anfield and win?You’re braver than us if that’s where your money is going.Liverpool have built their title chasing ambitions on a quite ridiculous home record and haven’t lost here in over two years.You have to go back to 2011 to the last time Spurs beat Liverpool at Anfield.That Reds team featured Jay Spearing, David N’Gog and Jon Flanagan. How times change.6Credit: AFP or licensorsPressure is growing on Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham following another poor displayBut every team that has visited Merseyside so far this season – including in Europe – has scored.And we think Spurs will. It’s just a shame they won’t be able to keep it out at the other end.Liverpool are 33/20 to win with both teams scoring – for us, that’s the bet of the weekend.And have a play on Spurs to take the lead, but Liverpool to storm back and get the victory. That’s a monster 13/2.Pochettino’s future hangs in the balance and there are even some Tottenham fans calling on him to make way for new blood.Get ahead of the game and take the 3/1 on him being the next Premier League manager to get the sack – that’s a decent price with only Ole under the same sort of pressure.Harry Kane has drawn a blank in his last three games against Liverpool, but has found the net at Anfield on three previous visits.Take the special price of 7/1 on the England man to score from the spot – it might be Spurs’ best chance.SUNSPORT’S BEST BETS:Liverpool to win and both teams to score: 33/20Reds to win from behind: 13/2Harry Kane to score a penalty: 7/1Mauricio Pochettino next manager to be sacked: 4/1*Odds correct at time of publication ANOTHER week, another Premier League puzzle to solve – and we’ve got a whole host of betting tips for you.Here at SunSport we’ve picked out our best selections from four upcoming games, including a packed Super Sunday schedule which sees Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Spurs all playing at the same time.6 Arsenal fans are praying for another international break after losing to Sheffield UnitedCredit: ReutersArsenal vs Palace – Sunday, 4.30pmJUST when you think they’ve cracked it, Arsenal bring their fans back down to Earth with a bump.Unai Emery’s side were eight games unbeaten in all competitions as they travelled to Bramall Lane on Monday night – only to get turned over by newly-promoted Sheffield United.It’s another Top Six scalp in a season of upsets, with the Gunners toothless in attack and increasingly erratic at the back.Super Sunday sees the visit of Crystal Palace, who are very quietly having an excellent season under the steady hand of Roy Hodgson.They’ve won two of their last three, with the defeat to Man City last weekend simply a free shot for the soaring Eagles.Sitting pretty in sixth and just a point behind the Gunners, Palace will see this as another glorious chance to cause an upset – just as they did here back in April.That 3-2 victory ended a run of six games without a win against the Gunners and Hodgson will be confident up against this calamitous Arsenal defence.6 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is red-hot on SundaysWilfried Zaha was the subject of intense transfer speculation over the summer and at one stage looked destined for the Emirates with a £40million bid on the table.Despite Palace’s lofty position in the table, he’s really failed to fire so far and has drawn a blank in ten games.As such, the huge 10/3 on him netting in this London derby are too tempting to turn down.Arsenal have been excellent at home this term and that’s the only reason we’re even leaning towards them winning this game.If Palace score – which we think they will – they’ll need to score at least two again and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the man to be on.His record on a Sunday is absolutely ridiculous and we’re taking him to end his current drought of three without a goal.SUNSPORT’S BEST BETS:Arsenal and Palace both teams to score: 8/13Wilfried Zaha to show Arsenal what they’re missing with a goal: 10/3Aubameyang back on the score-sheet: 5/66 Zaha was a summer transfer target for Arsenal, who bid a mere £40m, but Crystal Palace held on to their star manCredit: AFP or licensorsNorwich vs Man Utd – Sunday, 4.30pmWHICH United turn up this week?Norwich will be licking their lips at the prospect of Solskjaer’s side rocking up on Sunday afternoon.They’ve already stunned Man City here this season, but haven’t won since and currently sit second from bottom of the table.Daniel Farke will be delighted that they kept a clean-sheet at Bournemouth last weekend and that’s definitely something for his side to build on.The German likes his side to press hard and Gegenpress high up the pitch, stifling the opposition for time and room.Basically, everything that this United side don’t do.Ole’s men picked up a point against Liverpool after raising their game at Old Trafford.But after a huge slice of VAR fortune, it’s difficult to look at that game objectively and then back them to win here in Norfolk.last_img read more

PNG falls behind in world league rankings

first_imgIt is the worst it has been for the code which is considered the national sport in the country.PNG, which was usually in the top five in past years, has dropped out of sight and now sits at number 14, plunging three place from 11th spot out of 35 countries in the new  RLIF World Rankings issued recently.To rub salt into the wound, Samoa (4th) consolidated its position in the top four, while Fiji (7th)  dropped one point from 6th spot, while PNG, with all its resource and funds being injected into the “national sport” seems to be moving in the opposite direction – down.As the 2016 season comes into view, PNG’s rank will come under more pressure. Firstly, because PNG did not qualify to make it into the Four Nations Tournament.   The vacancy left open by the sacking of Kumul coach Mal Meninga, now the Australian Kangaroos coach, has left a big hole to fill for the PNG Rugby Football League.The Four Nations tournament, to be played in the UK next autumn, will offer England, Australia and New Zealand the opportunity of going in to the 2017 World Cup as the number one ranked nation, a position currently held by the Kiwis.Among the big movers are two nations who will compete in the 2016 World Cup Qualifiers – Europe; Spain who go up five places to 21 and the winners of European Championship B in 2015, Serbia, who now sit just outside the top ten.Wales move up one place after winning the 2015 European Championship, as do Ireland, while Scandinavian nations Sweden and Denmark both move up two places.Jamaica also go up two places to 27th after excellent performances in the recent World Cup Qualifiers – Americas, when they narrowly lost to the USA and drew with Canada, who are much higher ranked. The USA stay in 10th place after their recent qualification for RLWC2017.The other big movers in the rankings are Malta, who also move up five places.Full Rankings below and to keep up to date with the 2017 World Cup visit www.rlwc2017.com1 (1) New Zealand 2 (2) Australia3 (3) England4 (4) Samoa5 (5) France6 (7) Ireland7 (6) Fiji8 (9) Wales9 (8) Scotland10 (10) USA11 (14) Serbia12 (12) Italy13 (13) Canada14 (11) PNG15 (16) Russia16 (15) Tonga17 (18) Belgium18 (23) Malta19 (19) Germany20 (20) Lebanon21 (26) Spain22 (17) Cook Islands23 (22) Ukraine24 (24) Greece25 (27) Denmark26 (21) Norway27 (29) Jamaica28 (25) Netherlands29 (31) Sweden30 (30) Czech Republic31 (28) South Africa33 (33) Hungary34 (34) Latvia35 (35) MoroccoWhat will it take for PNG rugby league to get back into the top four ranks and what will it take to halt PNG’s free-flow plunge?Comment on this story…last_img read more

Boas: More career awareness needed national athletes

first_imgAfter attending an Athlete Career Education course this week, Boas strongly recommends the course be pumped out to national athletes in other codes as well in the country.The course was co-hosted by High Performance – PNG Sports Foundation, Cricket PNG and International Cricket Council,“This is a very good course and would have been great if all other national athletes from other codes attended.“Like most of us playing at the national level, we are bound to lose our form one day.“One day we might not play to the level expected of us by the management or in the code.“This awareness that I attended is very vital for our personal lives as well as we have a life after sport,” said Boas.Boas said as national icons in the country at the moment, athletes cannot go back to the village and act as ordinary people.He said they need to make something of their lives now while they are still active and young.Boas recommended that such career awareness programs be carried out in the villages because most athletes in the country today come from a rural setting where they depend on sports to get them somewhere in life when the education systems fails them. Course speaker and former New Zealand and Sri Lankan cricketer, Sanj Silva explained to Boas the explanation that national athletes to need find an interest in life while playing sports so that they have something to fall back on when they leave sport.Silva added that athletes leave sport for three main reasons either through a drop in form, retirement or injury, but it is mostly because of injury and form.Silva is currently the National Personal Development Manager for New Zealand’s national sporting teams including the All Blacks.He was here in the country to talk on career opportunities for Athletes after sports.last_img read more

Vinnie Jones, the most violent soccer player

first_imgIn the Wimbledon, Jones was the best known of a team nicknamed as ‘Crazy gang’ for its hardness and its macarrismo. “In this club, the only hooligans are the players,” the president said. With his style, the ‘Crazy gang’ won the 1988 FA Cup at Liverpool. This cup, the only title of his career, was the culmination of an unstoppable career since his entry into professional football in 77/78. Jones withdrew Gary Stevens, insulted Gullit and even intimidated Eric Cantona, who had no courage to recriminate him a criminal entry in a match between Wimbledon and United. The English football ecosystem helped by being permissive with these actions. By that entrance to the French forward, Jones only saw a yellow one although in his career he was expelled up to 12 times, less than anyone would expect today to see one of the videos that compile his best worst actions circulating on the Internet.Poster in English of the movie Snatch in which several actors of the cast appear. Vinnie Jones never wanted to please anyone with his football. Neither his teammates, much less his rivals. Watford’s was literally the worst nightmare of his opponents. In his list of victims are several of the football stars of the 80: Ruud Gullit, Gascoigne, Cantona … ‘Magnicides’ but also butcher shops of less name. Vinnie, a working-class family but a conservative voter, never made a difference by class: he had sticks for everyone.From Watford, a young Vinnie insisted until he reached professional football. He tried in amateur categories and even in Sweden until he reached Wimbledon where he rose to fame for its excessive hardness. There, Gazza was his first victim. The one that launched him to fame.Paul Gascoigne began to emerge in Newcastle and Vinnie had the mission of stopping the star. “He approached me and said: ‘My name is Vinnie Jones, I’m a gypsy, I earn a lot of money. I’m going to rip your ear with your teeth and I’m going to spit it out on the grass. You’re alone, fat!” Gazza who knocked down that day on numerous occasions, spit on him and grabbed him violently leaving a photo that is part of the history of English football. That same meeting, Paul acknowledged later, Vinnie told him that he would go to a corner and wait for him there. Gazza, frightened, did it. “He is the only player I have come to fear,” he said. After football, he made the leap to the cinema where he has already appeared in a hundred movies. His debut was in ‘Lock, Stock and Two smocking barrels’ and Guy Ritchie must have been delighted with him and also added him in the casting of one of his best works, ‘Snatch, pigs and diamonds’. There, Vinnie Jones played Tony ‘Bullet teeth’ and shared cast with recognized stars like Benicio Del Toro, Brad Pitt or Jason Statham. “I already played at Wembley and won the FA Cup. Now, the rest is the Oscar,” he acknowledged in an interview for Líbero magazine. Vinnie, habitual of the hard type papers, wants to get the statuette as he did with the FA Cup, being (almost) himself.center_img DAILY ASlast_img read more

The roads of the future could be made of millions of cigarette butts

first_imgIf we strive to count the cigarette butts we can see in one day, we would surely lose the account shortly after we started. This waste not only ends up being thrown out by the environment, but is technically the worst toxic waste. Now a new way to get rid of cigarette butts in a safe way has been found: turn them into asphalt.Cigarette butts are one of the most common waste of current life, with an estimate of 1.3 million tons generated each year. Like a normal cigar, cigarette butts have many toxic chemicals that seep into the water, threatening all aquatic organisms. Leaving them in one of the ashtrays that can be found in the street does not solve the problem, since the filters of the cigars are not biodegradable. Stub. Image: Pixabay Luckily, researchers at the RMIT University of Australia have found a way to take advantage of the butt chemicals; a recipe based on cigarette butts and asphalt to seal roads. The main author, Abbas Mohajerani, knows that it is impossible to eradicate tobacco consumption, but he can incorporate cigarette butts in different construction materials to demonstrate that waste can be reused.Stub. Image: PixabayThe mixture was able to resist as traditional asphalt doesIn the study they mixed the butts with paraffin wax, oil-based bitumen and finally added asphalt blends. Then they simulated the same paving processes of a road to check the strength of the mixture. Depending on the density of cigarette ends in each sample and the quality of the asphalt used; The new recipe was able to withstand all expected expectations. Starting by supporting light and heavy traffic, and continuing to have a lower thermal conductivity than traditional asphalt. It is very important to emphasize that the asphalt mixture they achieved was able to withstand great efforts and flow under permanent loads, presenting ideal and ecological properties for construction. This research can demonstrate that a new building material can be created while the environment is rid of a huge waste problem. It is difficult to estimate when cigarette butts will be a common ingredient in asphalt mixtures, but what is certain is that it is estimated that in the coming years tobacco consumption will be reduced.center_img They have used cigarette butts as an ingredient to create asphaltAn ecological method that turns waste into something usefulThe mixture is able to withstand all road conditionslast_img read more
