Wide open Kentucky Derby awaits after favourite scratched

first_img(REUTERS) – The Kentucky Derby is the first step toward Triple Crown glory and this year’s ‘Run for the Roses’ is more wide open than it has been in years after race favourite Omaha Beach was scratched due to injury.The betting line for today’s race went through a big shake-up after Omaha Beach, who was installed as the early 4-1 favourite, was pulled from the event on Wednesday after developing a non-life-threatening breathing problem.The absence of Omaha Beach opens the door for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, who is seeking to tie all-time trainer record for Kentucky Derby wins with six and now has the top three favourites in Game Winner, Roadster and Improbable. The top choice, at 9-2, is Game Winner, followed by Roadster and Improbable, who were both given 5-1 odds.But Baffert, who trained both American Pharoah and Justify to their Triple Crown wins in 2015 and 2018, respectively, is not getting ahead of himself going into the 1-1/2 mile race at Churchill Downs. “There are a lot of good horses in here,” said Baffert. “Unless we see something different on Derby Day, this is a nice evenly matched group of horses. I don’t see someone really popping off the screen.” Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who rode Justify to a Triple Crown and was supposed to be aboard Omaha Beach today, was named yesterday as a late replacement for Corey Lanerie aboard 30-1 longshot Cutting Humor.Another horse to watch will be Maximum Security (10-1) as the Jason Servis-trained bay colt enters the Kentucky undefeated in his four starts. The Kentucky Derby field was reduced to 19 horses yesterday when longshot Haikal was scratched with an abscess on left hoof. As a result, the rail will remain empty as War of Will, who had drawn the No.1 post, will now break from the second gate.There is rain in the forecast today and while it may stop by the time the horses set off at 18:46hrs ET (2246 GMT) it is most certain they will contest the race on a wet track. Wet conditions will prove beneficial to some horses, perhaps none more so than War of Will (20-1), who last November raced on a muddy track at Churchill Downs in his first start on dirt and breezed to a five-length victory.But the Mark Casse-trained colt may need all the help he can get after an unfavourable draw has the son of hot Sire War Front starting from a post that has not produced a winner since 1978.last_img read more

Wiltshire was able to close him off early in the fourth set for the win.In the semi-final, Wiltshire got the better of Bermuda’s Matthew Elliot 11-4, 11-2, 11-1 while Guyana’s Samuel Ince-Carvalhal was beaten by Benn 11-6, 7-11, 14-12, 11-9.

Westhill girls lacrosse tops Marcellus, 10-8

first_img Tags: girls lacrosseMarcellusWesthill But though Vetsch had five goals and Canny added three goals, no other Mustangs player helped them, and Westhill, with more options, fought their way in front during the second half.True, Rebecca Gilhooley had three goals and three assists, but aid came from Caroline Miller and Gianna Zerrillo, who each scored twice. Also, Reilly Geer, Grace Winkler and Kendra MacCaull earned goals, negating the nine saves from Marcellus goalie Kenai Cameron.A day earlier, neither team had much stress as Westhill went to Tully and prevailed 14-5 over the Black Knights, while Marcellus dominated Jordan-Elbridge in a 19-2 decision. Not wasting much time, Marcellus steadily built a 13-1 halftime advantage on J-E and just kept going, Katy Wangnsess leading the way with five goals as Vetsch got three goals and three assists.Canny also scored three times, adding two assists as Sarah Hutchings had two goals and one assist. Casey Conklin got a goal and two assists, with Lily Locastro, Madison Green, Maisie Moses, Madeline Caron and Elena Shaw also converting.Gabby Smart and Chelsea Curtis earned J-E’s lone goals, and Gabby Skotinski was busy in the net for the Eagles, finishing the night with 12 saves.Earlier that day, Westhill had a rare game on a natural-grass surface, but still took control against Tully late in the first half, building an 8-2 advantage on the Black Knights.And the Warriors protected that lead well, with three-goal hat tricks from four different players –Gilhooley, Winkler, Zerrillo and MacCaull.  Gilhooley also had five assists, with Miller getting three assists and Winkler two assists. Franny Argentieri stopped nine of the 14 shots she faced.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story center_img With the Westhill girls lacrosse team planted at no. 2 in the state Class D rankings and Marcellus still in the no. 6 spot, a whole lot of importance was attached to Wednesday night’s meeting besides the natural rivalry the two schools share.Knowing that they might meet each other for higher stakes later in the month, the Mustangs got the best part of the early going, but later on it was the Warriors, strong on both ends, able to take charge and pull out a 10-8 victory.As it turned out, the Mustangs were a two-player attack. Anna Vetsch and Laura Canny were responsible for every single goal during an active first half, and their work was enough to inch Marcellus in front 6-5 going to the break.last_img read more

Racing tipster sanctioned by the ASA

first_img Submit Share Paddy Power: Maintaining brand identity with daring marketing campaigns July 27, 2020 Related Articles Seven key considerations when picking a real-time marketing automation platform April 7, 2020 StumbleUpon Share Market leaders headline SBC Digital Summit’s Digital Marketing Day April 22, 2020 Racing tipster Philip Murray felt the wrath of the UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), after four complaints over a direct mail advert were upheld. The ad in question, which first appeared in June 2018, stated: “Aren’t you sick and tired of constantly losing bet after bet? Isn’t it depressing that no matter what, you never achieve the profits you always hoped for? … Here’s a Guaranteed, Sure-fire Way to Literally CRUSH the Bookies While Exponentially Growing Your Bankroll…And Making Betting on Horse Racing Something Ridiculously Simple!”It added: “But never fear you can still join us and profit immediately … I used to read these sales letters; tipsters making thousands in a day, driving Ferraris, paying off their mortgages and huge savings accounts and be so jealous I’d nearly puke. Now I’ve become one of them. You can turn around the downward trend in betting right now … Now for the final time ever I would like to offer an opportunity to join me for the SUPER TEXT BETS … but at a Very Special Price you can now join for … TWO YEARS £89 Saving You £411.”The complainant challenged whether the advert was misleading and socially irresponsible as it detailed that there’s a ‘guaranteed, sure-fire way’ to win money from the bookies. They also questioned the legitimacy of the savings claims made by the tipster, as well as whether claims about depression caused by losing bets, paying off mortgages and turning around a downward trend in betting were socially irresponsible.After Murray failed to respond to the complaint, something the ASA took as a disregard for the code, all four claims about the ad were upheld. The ASA told Murray the ad must not appear again in its current form. Telling him to ensure in the future that he did not make savings claims, guarantee consumers would make a profit using their service or make claims that they had previously given successful tips, without holding relevant evidence substantiation. It further referred the matter to the CAP compliance team.last_img read more

Again, when we see him in France, we feel we’re seeing Marcel again.”last_img read more

Sepp Blatter welcomes Infantino’s appointment

first_imgFrom the conference hall to meet the press and the first time Gianni Infantino was put under the media microscope as President of FIFA.There will be no hiding place now for the man who is only the ninth president in the organisation’s 112-year history. The tone was one of inclusion and responsibility.“We will work tirelessly, starting from myself, through all the associations and all the staff members to make sure that we bring football back to FIFA and FIFA back to football because this is what we have to do, what we want to do and what we will do. We will restore the image of FIFA, we will make sure that everyone… everyone will be happy with what we do,” he told journalists.The result of the ballot was welcomed by many including Sepp Blatter who seemed to be trying to take a share of the glory when he said, “Gianni Infantino will now have to take over what I started, the last remaining points of the big reform package.”Gianni Infantino was been elected as the man to replace Sepp Blatter as FIFA president, winning an overall majority in the second round of voting. The Swiss-Italian edged ahead of favourite Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim al-Khalifa in the first ballot but failed to secure the two-thirds of the vote required to secure victory.Infantino picked up 115 votes, needing just 104, to replace Sepp Blatter at the world football governing body.last_img read more
