first_imgSANTA ANITA’S ONE MILE MAIN TRACK TO REOPEN FOR TRAINING MONDAY AT 5 A.M.; TRACK TO BE AVAILABLE TO JOGGERS & GALLOPERS ONLY, WORKOUTS EXPECTED TO RESUME IN THE COMING DAYS ARCADIA, Calif. (March 9, 2019)–Santa Anita’s one mile main track will reopen for limited training Monday morning at 5 a.m.  Closed for training and racing since this past Tuesday, training will be restricted to joggers and gallopers on Monday.  Three renovation breaks will be taken as regularly scheduled.  These breaks will be from 6 a.m. to 6:30 a.m., from 7:15 a.m. to 7:45 a.m., and from 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.“Over the past four days, we’ve been able to do a great deal in terms of amending the soil and inspecting it,” said California-based trackman Dennis Moore, who has been charged with heading a group of track maintenance personnel that includes third-party experts investigating Santa Anita’s main track.  This group also includes representatives of the California Horse Racing Board.Moore, who has 46 years of experience maintaining tracks in California and around the world, has been conducting extensive visual inspections of the one mile oval, as well as analyzing soil samples and test data generated by Dr. Mick Peterson, a third party consultant who serves as the director of the University of Kentucky’s Agricultural Equine Program and is a professor of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering.“I think the most important thing with this track right now is that we closely monitor compaction levels,” said Moore.  “With all the rain, and this is the case in any wet winter, the ‘fines,’ silt and sand, can change very quickly and that affects the clays as well.  Compaction, as well as dilution, of silt and sand, are all factors in the overall composition of the soil.“More specifically, it’s been very helpful that we have not had any significant rain since this past Wednesday.  We’ve been able to harrow, roto-till and aerate the soil throughout each day in order to get a uniform track profile and that’s helped Mick in his efforts.  With all of this, the objective is to get the ideal composition throughout our six inch cushion.”Peterson’s primary focus has been conducting testing that simulates the force and speed generated by the leading forelimb of a Thoroughbred running at full speed.  Utilizing what’s called an Orono Biomechanical Surface Tester, Peterson has gathered data that quantifies firmness, cushioning, grip and consistency from locations throughout the one mile surface.“We’ve reviewed Mick’s research and it clearly indicates our cushion is right where it needs to be,” said Moore.  “We also acknowledge that things can happen even under perfect circumstances, but from everything we’ve been able to learn, this track is in outstanding condition and it’s ready for training.”Santa Anita’s main track is expected to reopen to horses breezing for the purpose of receiving official workout times in the coming days.  Pending further testing and analysis of morning training, Santa Anita is expected to reopen for racing in the coming weeks.Santa Anita Park announced new protocols yesterday with regard to training and racing, and these measures will be in-place Monday and in the days and weeks to come.For additional information, please  call (626) 574-RACE.last_img read more

A title-challenging team could be formed from stars out of contract this summer

first_imgEVERYBODY loves a free transfer.But what if you could create an entire starting XI out of potential free agents?2That’s exactly what we’ve done at SunSport, bringing you not one but TWO starting XIs made up entirely of players who are currently out of contract at the end of the season.There are some huge names involved, and we reckon both these sides would have a great shot at the Premier League title.Let’s take a look at these two juggernauts then…1st XI (4-3-3):GK: JOE HART (English, 32, Burnley)RB: THOMAS MEUNIER (Belgian, 28, PSG)CB: TOBY ALDERWEIRELD (Belgian, 30, Spurs)CB: JAN VERTONGHEN (Belgian, 32, Spurs)LB: LAYVIN KURZAWA (French, 27, PSG)CM: CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN (Danish, 27, Spurs)CM: LUKA MODRIC (Croatian, 34, Real Madrid)CM: DAVID SILVA (Spanish, 33, Man City)RW: WILLIAN (Brazilian, 31, Chelsea)ST: EDINSON CAVANI (Uruguayan, 32, PSG)LW: PEDRO (Spanish, 32, Chelsea)LADBROKES 1-2-FREE Simply predict Chelsea, Palace vs Leicester and Spurs scores this coming weekend and win £100VERDICT:A SOLID looking team for sure.Cavani would be a great outlet through the middle, surely guaranteeing at least 20 goals a season.While Willian and Pedro would provide ample support up and down the wings.Modric’s age makes him ideal for a holding midfield position.And his passes would look magical alongside the technical prowess of both Silva and Eriksen.In defence, Meunier and Kurzawa are good runners while Alderweireld and Vertonghen are still regarded as top centre-backs.Goalkeeper Hart may be a cause for concern, but the rest of the team is so good he may not even see much action each match.2nd XI (4-3-3):2GK: CLAUDIO BRAVO (Chilean, 36, Man City)RB: NATHANIEL CLYNE (England, 28, Liverpool)CB: ERIC BAILLY (Ivorian, 25, Man Utd)CB: GIORGIO CHIELLINI (Italian, 35, Juventus)LB: JAMES MILNER (English, 33, Liverpool)CM: MARIO GOTZE (German, 27, Borussia Dortmund)CM: NEMANJA MATIC (Serbian, 31, Man Utd)CM: BLAISE MATUIDI (French, 32, Juventus)RW: JOSE CALLEJON (Spanish, 32, Napoli)ST: DRIES MERTENS (Belgian, 32, Napoli)LW: RYAN FRASER (Scottish, 25, Bournemouth)VERDICT:ANOTHER good side – but certainly weaker in midfield at least.The forward line is formidable, with Callejon and Mertens well accustomed to each other.While Fraser has the potential to become a top winger at the right club.Bailly and Chilellini is as powerful a defensive partnership as they come.While Clyne and Milner are still more than capable of holding their own in the full-back positions.Most Read In SportTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubHowever, Bravo is certainly seen better days and may need looking at sooner rather than later.But it’s midfield where this team falls short, with Matic no longer the player he once was.The same can be said of Gotze, despite his age, although Matuidi remains a top-class shuttler.Mauro Icardi’s model wife Wanda looks amazing as she takes part in some seriously sexy shootslast_img read more

Oblak sits at Messi’s table

first_imgAs decisive as a nine. Or more, according to the seen. Oblak yesterday received the Koke captain’s armband that was reluctant in inheritance and the Slovenian showed that the Vallecano’s order is not great for him. The hug in the bowels of King Abdullah with Simeone was eloquent. Almost as much as the congratulations he received from the players of Barcelona, ​​Messi, among them. And it is that the Slovenian goalkeeper was the buoy that Atlético embraced and then starred in an act of faith registered trademark of the Simeone team.But first it was Oblak who looked Messi and company in the eye. It fit, yes, but his anthological aggrantation not only kept Atlético in the semifinal race but also collaborated to unsettle Barcelona. Bardhi’s two hands a few days ago were still fresh before the Slovenian began his recital. And that Suarez left a little money with his hip at a quarter of an hour. It had to be taken care of. In the 22 ’he shone before Messi, who finished off at close range. He pulled out his leg to avoid the first. Oblak, the most profitable player.At Atlético they are celebrated like any Morata or Correa goal. And it maintains its status as a more regular player of the team during the last seasons. In addition, there is little doubt that it will be the most profitable signing in the history of the club. It barely cost 16 million and its market value is already at 100 million. Together with the games and the points that have allowed to win. As in Arabia. Griezmann got off an Atletico that Oblak has been defending on fire without giving importance. He almost prefers to talk about the confidence he has in a player who has not yet participated as Saponjic and who arrived like him without making any noise, than the pools of the prizes that are denied. Of course, leaving behind a recital of heritage stops and humanity. Solvent, as always, picking up centers, in 39’ he showed his knowledge of Griezmann. He denied the goal in a very quick exit to leave him with no time or space to locate the shot or to attempt dribbling. In a row, he rightly covered a top shot from Suarez. In the second half he kept the guy, after Messi’s tie. By then Barcelona was already a gale. The Argentine tested him in 55 ‘, with a focused shot and Oblak did not flinch. He pulled placement. Then he closed the Griezmann door again, guessing the petroleum jelly he was trying. They were minutes of suffering and the onslaught of one of the most scoring strikers in the world was slowed in the hands of the Slovenian. JESUS ​​ALVAREZ ORIHUELA & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FOOTBALL 19 / 20Oblak took this hand by hand from Griezmann.JESUS ​​ALVAREZ ORIHUELA (DIARIO AS) Even fitting conveyed fight will to Barcelona. Griezmann managed to overcome him in 62 ’, by picking up the rebound in the small area after the poster that Oblak made to Suarez in a powerful header. In 66 ‘he repeated to the Uruguayan with a very good hand down. The charrúa seemed to identify the last focus of resistance and maintained two more encounters with the goalkeeper, coming to fear for his physical condition. Something that relieved Simeone himself who claimed protection for his goalkeeper. Oblak and Atlético came from giving in to Barcelona in the Metrolitano for a genius of Messi, but this time it was the goal that sat at his table to tip the duel in favor of rojiblanco. In case there are doubts, it was his game with more stops in the current season.last_img read more

Sevilla arrives on guard

Hispanics do not trust a lower-ranking rival in one of their favorite competitions (follow the match live on reddish fief will wear his best galas to take his team on wings in search of the quarterfinals. The small details will be key in an appointment in which the local squad wants to show its best version of the game. The Canary goalkeeper Raul Lizoain, last incorporation, could debut under sticks; while less common players in the lineups like González, Kijera, Peña and Matheus They have all the ballots to jump from start to the grass. With everything. Lopetegui It is clear: do not reserve anyone. The only ones left in Andalusian lands are the injured. From Jong is on a roll, has scored in the last two games of League and against him I raised in Cup. From the signing of In Nesyri, the Dutch striker has put the batteries in attack and is performing at a higher level.The central Diego Carlos it seems fixed in the defense since it is sanctioned for the next league commitment. Other names like Escudero, Navas, Banega, Munir or Vázquez They are in the call which clearly demonstrates that Sevilla is taking the KO tournament very seriously since the first qualifier.last_img read more

Raúl de Tomás, the goal that escaped Lopetegui

first_imgLaLiga Santander* Data updated as of February 13, 2020 Not surprisingly, that football that sometimes grants second chances could have brought together in January the reunion between the two, when the Hispanics were looking forward and had 20 million, just what Benfica asked for RdT. But Espanyol had anticipated, convincing him and the Lisbon club since mid-December, so those of Lopetegui ended up opting for Youssef En Nesyri for that same amount. Lopetegui numbers are not right. Not now, not last season. Until the dismissal of the coach at the head of Real Madrid, after the tenth day, only Karim Benzema had more goals (four) than the three of Thomas He had already harvested in the Rayo, where he would end up with 14 goals, the same ones that all the white team wore when the club turned to Santiago Solari to relieve him.“Benzema is Benzema and I am Raúl de Tomás, we are completely different“, the last season the perico striker resolved, fleeing (rather, showing his tiredness) from comparisons. Until August 24, 2018, very close to the end of the summer market, no Raúl de Tomás left Real Madrid’s discipline. His nth transfer, but not any one. And not because it would be the last one before being transferred a year later to Benfica, since he did not know it. But because the white coach did count on him. It was Julen Lopetegui.“I could have been there, Lopetegui wanted me to stay“, revealed the striker in January 2019. And added:”But I didn’t want my function to be just sitting all year“And hence he agreed to return to Rayo Vallecano, with which unlike Real Madrid he did make his debut in Primera. Now the player and coach faces will be seen, but with the equipment changed. Tomás, counting goals for matches at Espanyol. And Lopetegui, surfing a crisis of results in Seville.center_img LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of February 13, 2020 And this season, with the great caveat that there are still 15 games left to play, time is also proving RdT. He has four goals in as many days, as many as the ‘pichichi’ of his country, Luuk de Jong, throughout the season. For its part, In Nesyri has a loner both in Seville, yes, last day against Celta. And without forgetting that even in Leganés he stabbed Espanyol on December 22, with the 2-0 that meant the dismissal of Pablo Machín, a Sevilla coach a year ago.last_img read more
