first_imgStronach Stables’ Lord Justice led all the way to win the $70,000 Spend a Buck Stakes, and Edith R. Dixon’s Smart Enough was a facile winner in the $60,000 Wolf Hill Stakes on turf before a crowd of 8,365 at Monmouth Park on Saturday. In the Spend a Buck Stakes for 3-yearolds, Lord Justice used his good speed to secure an early lead, and then had enough left to hold off the late charge of Santana Six to score by a half-length. It Happened Again, the 2-1 favorite in the field of eight, was third, three lengths farther back. Lord Justice gained command soon after the start and cut out fractions of :22 3/5, and :45 4/5. He turned into the stretch with the lead after six furlongs in 1:10 and opened a clear lead at the eighth pole. Santana Six cut into the margin, but was no real threat to the winner. This was the second win of the year in three starts for Lord Justice, a bay colt by A.P. Indy Buy the Sport, by Devil’s Bag. It was the first stakes win for the Stronach homebred. “I was surprised and worried when I saw the fractions,” said Anthony Sciametta Jr., Pletcher’s assistant at Monmouth. “This horse has been training really well in the morning, and he showed it today.” The winner, trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by Chris DeCarlo, raced the one mile and 70 yards over a fast main track in 1:39 4/5 and paid $15.60, $8 and $4.20 across the board. Santana Six, second choice in the betting at 3-1, completed the $75 exacta and paid $5 to place and $4 to show. It Happened Again paid $2.80 to show. “I was told to hit the half in 48 seconds and I went in 45,” DeCarlo said. “The horse was just going so easily that it didn’t seem that fast. He was comfortable the whole way and very relaxed on the lead. He had his ears pricked the whole way around.” Earlier in the day, in the Wolf Hill, Smart Enough was the 4-5 favorite and ran that way as he scored by nearly two lengths. He took command out of the gate and was never threatened as he hit the line in 1:01 for the about five and a half furlongs over a turf course rated “good.” Smart Enough, trained by John R.S. Fisher and ridden by Eddie Castro, returned $3.60, $2.60 and $2.10 across the board. Atticus Kristy, an 11-1 chance, closed for the place, paying $7 and $3.40 and completing the $26.20 exacta. Awakino Cat, second choice in the field of seven, paid $2.80 to show. This was the first win of the year in two starts for Smart Enough, a 6-year-old son of Horse Chestnut who improved his record at Monmouth to four wins in five starts here. “He’s back to himself,” said Fisher. “For him to run that fast over this course was impressive. He’ll go next in the Highlander at Woodbine (June 21). That’s six furlongs, but he can do that no problem. “We’ll probably be back here later this summer. We love coming to Monmouth. It’s just such a wonderful place to race.” Highlighting Sunday’s action at Monmouth Park, John Petrini’s Love That Dance took command at the bell and never looked back, posting a 3-length win in the Open Mind Handicap. “She’s a lot like her stable mate (referring to multiple stakes winner Joey P.),” said winning jockey Joe Bravo, of Long Branch. After the first jump, the race was over. “She’s a very fast filly and awesome to ride. Right out of the gate she landed on the front end and relaxed for me.” Trained by Ben Perkins Jr., Love That Dance carved out fractions of :22 2/5 for the quarter and :45 1/5 for the half before reporting home in 1:09 2/5 for the six furlongs over a fast main track. The filly by Not For Love returned $14, $5.80 and $4 across the board and topped a $226.80 exacta. Love For Not, the longest shot in the field of six fillies and mares, returned $16.60 and $6.60. It was another length and three quarters back to Open Skies, who paid $4.20 to show. Way With Words, sent off the odds-on choice, never fired and finished fifth. Sunday’s win marked the fourth lifetime and first this year for Love That Dance. She has now earned $154,549 for her connections. Musket Man Back At Monmouth, Will Train Up To Haskell Eric Fein and Vic Carlson’s Musket Man, third in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, is back at Monmouth Park after a brief break, and is now preparing for the $1 million Haskell Invitational (G1) on Aug. 2. Trainer Derek Ryan said the Yonaguska colt, who won the Tampa Bay Derby (G3) and Illinois Derby (G2) coming into the Kentucky Derby, was scheduled to start galloping yesterday after jogging at the Oceanport track earlier in the week. Ryan said he does not plan to run his charge before the Haskell. Instead, he plans to work the colt in the afternoon between races as part of Musket Man’s preparation for the big event. After running third behind Rachel Alexandra and Mine That Bird in the Preakness on May 16, Musket Man returned to Monmouth and then was sent to a nearby farm for a two-week vacation. Ryan said the colt returned to his barn last week. Monmouth Park’s website (www.monmouthpark. com) has been completely redesigned for the 2009 season, and was set to launch on Monday.

first_imgWorld Cup hosts Russia virtually booked their place in the second round with a 3-1 win over Egypt on Tuesday that moved them to top of Group A with six points from two games.Three goals in the space of 15 minutes early in the second half put the Russians firmly in command before Egypt’s Mohamed Salah, who had a subdued game on his return from injury, struck from a penalty, awarded after a video review.Should Uruguay (3 points) beat Saudi Arabia (0 points) on Wednesday it will ensure the South Americans and the Russians go through to the round of 16 with a game to spare.After a tight first half Russia’s breakthrough came just two minutes after the restart.Aleksandr Golovin’s cross was punched out by Egyptian keeper Mohamed El-Shenawy, only as far as Roman Zobnin whose low drive was heading wide until Ahmed Fathi’s outstretched leg turned the ball into his own net.Remarkably, it was the fifth own goal of the tournament so far. The record amount for a tournament is six in 1998.If there was some good fortune to the opener, the Russians’ second was pure quality.Alexander Samedov pushed the ball out wide to Mario Fernandes, the Brazilian born right back who had powered forward from deep to deliver a perfect pull-back into the path of Denis Cheryshev who slotted home his third goal of the tournament.Two minutes later it was 3-0 via a route one play, as target man Artem Dzyuba chested down a long ball, bustled past Ali Gabr and drove home.Salah, who had not played since going off injured in Liverpool’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid last month, managed some consolation when he converted from the spot after a video assistant referee (VAR) ruling that he had been brought down by Zobnin inside the area.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000BARCELONA, Spain February 27 – Cristiano Ronaldo continued his fine goal scoring record at the Nou Camp with a brace as Real Madrid beat Barcelona 3-1 to go through to the final of the King’s Cup 4-2 on aggregate.The Portuguese hit a first half penalty and then knocked in a rebound after the break as Real took full advantage of their counter-attacks. Raphael Varane headed the third after 68 minutes while Jordi Alba got a late consolation.Real Madrid will now take on the winners of Sevilla and Atletico Madrid who play on Wednesday, the capital side enjoying a 2-1 lead from their first leg.Ronaldo has now scored in his last six visits to the Catalan capital and came out on top in his personal battle with Lionel Messi, who was largely anonymous in the game.The Argentine, however, has the chance to respond when the pair meet again in the league at the weekend.This was the vital game though for Real who trail leaders Barcelona by 16 points in La Liga after a poor campaign and it is their best chance of picking up some silverware outside of the Champions League, in which they are evenly poised against Manchester United after a 1-1 first leg draw at the Bernabeu.“We knew how to play Barcelona and tactically we came out on top,” said Real ‘keeper Iker Casillas. “We were well positioned on the pitch and in all areas we were in control.“It was a very strong performance and in defence we were superb. Cristiano was phenomenal. It was a 10 out of 10 performance and we deserve to be in the final.“Cristiano is a vital player for us but while he had an excellent performance so did the whole team. He is a reference for us and has showed his capabililty not just in this game but in other Clasicos.“Hopefully this result can now be a turning point for the side because this is a difficult stadium to play in. Now we are looking to do well in the Champions League and La Liga.”There were no surprises in the Barcelona lineup with Andres Iniesta preferred in attack to David Villa which allowed space for Cesc Fabregas in midfield.Jose Mourinho chose Varane, who did so well in the first leg, ahead of Pepe to partner Sergio Ramos in the heart of the Madrid defence while finally there was no space for the rejuvenated Kaka with Angel Di Maria starting on the right wing.Barca began at a high-tempo with Iniesta firing wide from 20 yards and then Messi screwed an angled shot with his weaker right foot past the post from the edge of the six-yard box before two minutes were even on the clock.While Barca had their usual attacking ethos they were not pressing with the same intensity high up the pitch and so when Real did pick up possession they were able to play their way out of defence.Cesc had another effort which was comfortably blocked by keeper Diego Lopez before the visitors took the lead from a penalty after a breakaway which showed the danger they possess in attack, as well as Barca’s suspect defence which has now not kept a clean sheet in 12 matches in all competitions.Ronaldo knocked the ball around Gerard Pique inside the area and his former Manchester United teammate brought him down for a spot-kick which the Portuguese converted.Barca were hoping for a penalty of their own moments later but the referee waved away appeals for a foul by Alvaro Arbeloa on Cesc and it showed how the home side were becoming more frustrated at their inability to create clear-cut chances.Real were defending well while they continued to threaten through Ronaldo counter-attacks.Barca did win a free-kick on the edge of the area for a foul by Arbeloa after on Iniesta for which he was booked after 37 minutes and Messi’s shot went a whisker past the post.Barca attacked with renewed vigour after the break but it was Real who scored again after 57 minutes.Di Maria skipped round Carles Puyol and ‘keeper Victor Valdes could only parry his shot to Ronaldo who kept his composure to slot home.The Catalan side looked stunned and lost their shape at the back as Real cut them apart. Varane got their third as he outjumped the Barca defence at a corner to head in off the crossbar.A minute from the end Barca did finally get on the scoresheet with Alba knocking in a ball over the top from Iniesta.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000LONDON, England, August 18 – Jose Mourinho marked his return to the Premier League by guiding his Chelsea side to a comfortable 2-0 victory over promoted Hull City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.Mourinho was back six years after the end of his first spell at the club and he got the perfect welcome, with early goals from Oscar and Frank Lampard ensuring the Blues made a winning start to the campaign. With Roman Abramovich, the Chelsea owner, also marking his 10th anniversary at the west London club, there was a mood of celebration around the ground.And while the atmosphere grew more muted as Mourinho’s side failed to build on their early dominance, there was no doubt this was a satisfactory start to the Portuguese’s second term.Mourinho’s appearance before kick-off had prompted the expected, rousing response and the manager waved and blew kisses to the fans before taking his seat in the dug-out.With the formalities over, focus turned to the match and Mourinho’s players soon showed that they had heeded their manager’s warning — written in the match-day programme — that “this game is not a testimonial”.The line-up was familiar, with Kevin De Bruyne, making his Premier League debut after a season on loan at Werder Bremen, the only new face, but the Blues’ play had a freshness and urgency about it that brought early rewards.Just five minutes had elapsed when Fernando Torres chased a through ball into the Hull area and was floored by Allan McGregor’s attempt to punch the ball clear.The goalkeeper escaped a red card because Torres was heading away from goal and he made amends for his misjudgement by saving Lampard’s well-struck penalty.Hull were reprieved, but McGregor’s save only delayed the inevitable.The visitors were overwhelmed by the intensity of Chelsea’s forward play, with De Bruyne prominent alongside Eden Hazard and Oscar, operating just behind Torres.And it was the combination of the three playmakers that brought about the opening goal in the 13th minute.Hazard wriggled his way inside off the left flank and played the ball into De Bruyne, who cleverly stabbed the ball between the legs of centre-back James Chester to free Oscar, and the Brazilian slotted home from 10 yards.It was a wonderfully incisive move and prompted a fist-pumping celebration from Mourinho.Lampard, playing alongside Ramires in front of the Chelsea back four but pressing on whenever the opportunity arose, drew another excellent save from McGregor, before Hazard’s back-heel almost sent Ashley Cole clear.Hull seemed in desperate trouble and they were punished once more four minutes later when Lampard took advantage of Chester’s foul on Torres to score the second with a superb, dipping free-kick from 30 yards.Despite dominating, the home side failed to increase their lead during the remainder of the half.Branislav Ivanovic came closest, with McGregor clawing his header away from beneath the crossbar. Hawk-Eye replays using the new Goal-line Decision System proved the ball had not crossed the line.The urgency appeared to seep out of the game at the start of the second half, and Mourinho displayed his frustration when centre-backs Gary Cahill and John Terry completed a triangle of passes with goalkeeper Petr Cech.The manager clearly was not satisfied with two goals, but Hull had found a way to contain the Blues and the introduction of Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore — recent arrivals from Tottenham Hotspur — gave the visitors more presence in midfield.Chelsea should have been given the chance to make the game safe when Ivanovic appeared to have been pushed by Robbie Brady, but referee Jon Moss ignored appeals for a penalty.And the party mood at Stamford Bridge was further threatened when Cech was forced to save from Curtis Davies’ free header.That proved a passing threat, however, and Chelsea eased their way to the final whistle without further scares.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgHARBOR AREA: New leaders at two schools have experience at inner-city campuses. By Paul Clinton STAFF WRITER Two principals arrived at Harbor Area high schools Friday ready to tackle the challenge of managing Los Angeles Unified mega-campuses. Bob DiPietro took over San Pedro High, while Robert Lopez grabbed the reins at Banning High in Wilmington. Both men arrive after stints as assistant principals at inner-city LAUSD high schools. “They’ve worked in challenging environments,” said Linda Del Cueto, the local superintendent of the San Pedro-to-Watts area. “They’ll do a good job.” DiPietro replaces Diana Gelb, the third female principal in the school’s 100-plus-year history. Gelb stepped down for personal reasons after two years on the job. Bob DiPietro started in the LAUSD in 1985 as an English teacher at Locke High School, then moved to Jefferson High School. He spent the past five years at Marshall High School in Los Feliz. The 59-year-old educator lives in Culver City. “Everything begins with school and student safety,” DiPietro said. “After that’s taken care of, the next thing is instruction.” To get hired at the 3,106-student San Pedro High, DiPietro interviewed with a committee of parents, administrators and other community members. Del Cueto then selected him as the committee’s preferred candidate. Lopez, who couldn’t be reached for comment, replaced Michael Summe at Banning High. Summe accepted a position heading up the LAUSD’s effort to revamp the software system that tracks student grades and attendance. He left in June after three years. Lopez’s previous post was assistant principal at Garfield High School in East Los Angeles. He takes over a school in transition. The 3,151-student mega-campus converted to small learning academies last year. Banning High also met its federal No Child Left Behind achievement benchmark and showed marked improvement on test scores. It had long been an underperforming school and missed federal targets for five consecutive years. Del Cueto also noted that Lopez and DiPietro should be well suited to their jobs because they have worked at high schools with high numbers of English learners. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
