ARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 31, 2016)–St. Joe Bay, ridden by Kent Desormeaux, put away longshot Tough Sunday inside the sixteenth pole and managed a dead heat with his fast finishing stablemate, Solid Wager, who was handled by Victor Espinoza, to provide trainer Peter Miller with two official wins in Saturday’s Grade III, $100,000 Midnight Lute Stakes at Santa Anita. With the main track listed as sloppy, the pair got 6 ½ furlongs in 1:15.03.Head and head with eventual fourth place finisher Jimmy Bouncer around the far turn, St. Joe Bay repelled a stubborn challenge to his inside from Tough Sunday, but had no time for a breather, as his stablemate came at him with a furious late charge which resulted in the dead heat.“This is unbelievable,” said Miller, who won Santa Anita’s Kalookan Queen and Eddie Logan Stakes on Friday. “Both horses ran super. Both riders rode super. I couldn’t call it and obviously, the stewards couldn’t either, so I’m just elated for everyone involved. Watching it live, I thought the two (Solid Wager) won, then when I watched the replay, I thought the three (St. Joe’s Bay) won, and when they put up the ‘DH,’ I didn’t know what to do!”The even money favorite in a field of five 3-year-olds and up, St. Joe Bay, who is owned by Altamira Racing Stable and David Bernsen, paid $2.40, $3.00 and $2.10. A 4-year-old Florida-bred gelding by Saint Anddan, he notched his second win in a row in what was his first stakes victory. He now has four wins from 20 overall starts and with the winner’s share of $40,000, he increased his earnings to $257,175.“There were no losers, we had two horses on the team in that race and we tied,” said Desormeaux. ”Solid Wager, who lagged far behind the compact field headed into the turn, swung four-wide turning for home and just missed in a thrilling finish. Off at 5-1, he paid $4.60, $4.60 and $2.60.Owned by Gary and Cecil Barber and Stanford Stable, Solid Wager, a 5-year-old California-bred gelding by Birdonthewire, followed up on a half-length win versus state-breds in the seven furlong Cary Grant Stakes Nov. 20 at Del Mar with his first graded stakes tally.“The way the track is and the weather…I thought ‘Okay, I’ll get dirty and it could be an experience,’ but it’s my last race of the year so I’ll just go for it,” said Espinoza. “…It was awesome. When I crossed the wire I couldn’t tell but I was in front of him just a jump after. Kent thought he won right away, but I said ‘Hey, don’t be so sure.’ It’s not often this happens and to do it in a graded stakes for the same trainer?!”Ridden by Tyler Baze, Tough Sunday finished 1 ¼ lengths behind the top pair and 6 ¼ lengths clear of fourth place finisher Jimmy Bouncer. The longest shot at 8-1, Tough Sunday paid $3.20 to show.Fractions on the race were 21.47, 43.57 and 1:08.48.
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — It was a nail biter of a finish at the 2017 Wonowon Water Services Charity Pro-Am at Lakepoint Golf and Country Club on Wednesday afternoon.After shooting a four-under 68 in the first round on Tuesday, Kevin Stinson and James Allenby both stayed in the lead during today’s round. The two each shot 73 to end the day at -3 overall. However, the pair were joined by one other golfer after 18 holes. Lone Wolf’s Larry Ramstad shot a 71 to also end the day at three-under par, forcing a two-hole playoff on Lakepoint’s 17th and 18th holes.On 17, Allenby and Stinson parred, while Ramstad ended up with a bogey to be eliminated from the playoff. The wind ended up playing a big factor in the final hole, as both Allenby’s and Stinson’s drives sailed right of the fairway. Allenby’s first shot was nearly lost in the woods, but the Langley Golf Centre’s pro managed to get close to the green with his second shot. Unfortunately, it was enough, as Stinson’s second shot found the 19th green. The Cheam Mountain golfer then one-putted to clinch the win after 20 holes with a birdie.- Advertisement -With the win, Stinson takes a 100-point lead in the Vancouver Golf Tour’s order of merit points race, continuing the see-saw battle the two golfers have been in all season.
Nzoia had the earliest chance of the game after a speedy start but Victor Omondi could not beat Gor shot stopper Peter Odhiambo one on one after running behind the Gor defense.K’Ogalo however grew into the game as it progressed with Tuyisenge and Kagere making inroads into the Nzoia backline, looking for that opening chance.They got the goal they yearned for in the 25th minute when Tuyisenge raced in to a George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo cross, glancing it powerfully past the Nzoia keeper.The goal hugely calmed Gor down as they played with more ease, passing the ball around with comfort. Gor doubled their lead a minute to half time, Kagere again sneaking in behind the defense to head home a freekick from Kenneth Muguna.In the second half, Nzoia started with pace again and had a chance to half the deficit from the penalty spot after Gor keeper Odhiambo had fouled Masita Masuta. However, Steve Wakanya failed to convert, Odhiambo redeeming himself with a good save.Nzoia were punished for the missed chance three minutes later when Tuyisenge completed his brace with a neat finish.Kahata then made it 4-0 barely three minutes after coming in with another header, this time Tuyisenge turning from goal scorer to provider, floating in the cross.Dylan Kerr’s men managed to keep the score intact, choosing to enjoy the play and wind down the clock with Tuyisenge later withdrawn for John Ndirangu.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia skipper Musa Mohammed vies for the ball with Nzoia forward Masita Masuta during a Kenyan Premier League clash at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on September 9, 2017.

I’m convinced that we can do great things together,” he said at his Press conference.“I have respect for the fans and they have the right to criticise me, but for me it’s an extra stimulus.“I’ll get to work on both the players’ heads and how we set up on the field. These will be 10 important days and I’ll try to make the most of every opportunity.“My principles are based on ideas, intensity and ruthlessness. Giampaolo’s a good Coach, but he’s different to me.“I’ll have to be good at getting my ideas across to the team as quickly as possible. Let’s start with a good base.“There are some quality players here. Marco’s worked well. I’d like to play the football that the lads will enjoy playing.“I adapt to my players. I have to improve them individually so they can grow collectively.”The 53-year-old coached Inter with little success during the 2016-17 campaign and was an Nerazzurri fan growing up…“The past is the past, I was a kid. Now I’m an adult, a professional who has a great desire to do well.“I need to get to know my players. I’m very demanding of them and myself. I can’t stand shallowness and a lack of ambition. We must do our utmost to achieve great results.”
Louisville, shaking off another sluggish start, finished the national championship game and the college basketball season with a bang, fending off Michigan to capture its third NCAA Tournament title Monday night at the Georgia Dome.The Cardinals’ 82-76 victory was born of unmatched depth and poise. It also helped that they were inspired by injured guard Kevin Ware and coached by Rick Pitino, who became the first to ever coach two different teams to the championship.Not only that, but Pitino earlier Monday was named an inductee into the Basketball Hall of Fame.“I had the 13 toughest guys I’ve ever coached,” Pitino said. “I’m just amazed they could accomplish everything we put out there.”It was not easy. Led by player of the year Trey Burke (24 points) and freshman Spike Albrecht, who had 17-first-half points, Michigan led by 12 points in the first half and seemed in control of the game. It was then that Louisville’s toughness showed up. Reserve Luke Hancock, who was huge in the semifinal win over Wichita State, delivered again, hitting four straight three-pointers that actually put the Cardinals in front by one just before halftime.Michigan got two free throws to earn a one-point halftime advantage, but Louisville had built momentum. Hancock went on to become the Final Four’s most outstanding player for his career-high 22 points Monday night.But he had plenty of help. Point guard Peyton Siva was outstanding in attacking the Michigan defense and forward Chane Behanon (15 points, 12 rebounds) was an inside force, as Louisville pulled ahead 76-66 and did what it needed to do to earn the title.Ware, the guard from metro Atlanta whose legged snapped in gruesome fashion in the Duke win, cut down what remained of the nets in the Cardinals’ post-championship celebration. Ware’s poise and strength got them pass Duke and his presence on the sideline at the Georgia Dome fueled them.Still, some players said they were inspired by something else. Pitino told the team he would get a tattoo if they won the national championship.Siva (18 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists) called it, “Our biggest motivation.”Pitino said he would fulfill his promise. What’s a tattoo to a man who had the week he has, which included the Hall of Fame announcement, his horse winning the Santa Anita Derby to set up a Kentucky Derby run, and his son, Richard, getting the coaching job at Minnesota?The championship is what he wanted most, and Pitino and the Cardinal nation can bask in that achievement.
