Keith Desormeaux27 BAFFERT VIEWS BELMONT FROM AFAR THIS YEARCalifornia will have no equine or trainer representation in today’s 151st Belmont Stakes, final jewel in the Triple Crown, but interest remains from afar.Conspicuous by his absence is Bob Baffert, who swept the Triple Crown with American Pharoah in 2015 and Justify in 2018. That doesn’t mean the Hall of Fame trainer was without an opinion on the Belmont, at a mile and a half the most daunting of the three-year-old classics.“I like Pletcher and Mott,” Baffert said Saturday morning at Clockers’ Corner, alluding to a pair conditioned by Todd Pletcher, 10-1 morning line chance Intrepid Heart and 15-1 Spinoff, in addition to 9-5 morning line favorite Tacitus trained by Bill Mott.Ten horses were entered in the Belmont, with scheduled post time of 3:37 Pacific Time.The field: Joevia, Jose Lezcano, 30-1; Everfast, Luis Saez, 12-1; Master Fencer, Julien Leparoux, 8-1; Tax, Irad Ortiz Jr., 15-1; Bourbon War, Mike Smith, 12-1; Spinoff, Javier Castellano, 15-1; Sir Winston, Joel Rosario, 12-1; Intrepid Heart, John Velazquez, 10-1; War of Will, Tyler Gaffalione, 2-1; and Tacitus, Jose Ortiz, 9-5.LISTING RETURNS TO SPRINT IN DESERT CODEBen Cecil hopes returning to a turf sprint will benefit Listing in Sunday’s $75,000 Desert Stakes, a salty event that drew six entrants at five furlongs.A bay son of prolific sire Square Eddie owned by Reddam Racing, Listing won the California Cup Turf Sprint at about 6 ½ furlongs on Jan. 26 against state-breds, was second in the Echo Eddie vs. Cal-breds on the main track, and ran a creditable fourth when stretching out to a mile on turf against state-breds in the Silky Sullivan at Golden Gate April 28.After breaking his maiden first out in the restricted I’m Smokin last Aug. 31, he was a distant eighth in the Grade I Champagne at Belmont on Oct. 6 followed by a non-threatening fifth in the Golden State Juvenile at Santa Anita Nov. 3.“He grabbed a quarter in the Champagne,” the trainer explained. “The trip to New York took too much out of him.”As for the Desert Code, Cecil said, “He could be on the sharp side but he’s doing well. I think a mile is probably stretching him a little bit, so this seemed like the logical place to go.There are Cal-bred races down the road, so we can always go back there.”The Desert Code, race six of nine with a 1 p.m. first post time: Ginger Nut, Drayden Van Dyke, 5-2; Listing, Mario Gutierrez, 5-1; Legends of War, Flavien Prat, 7-2; Rafal, Joe Talamo, 3-1; Alleva, Rafael Bejarano, 5-1; and Strictly Biz, Tiago Pereira, 4-1.The Desert Code is named for the winner of the inaugural Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint, who scored at Santa Anita as the longest shot in the race at 36-1 under Richard Migliore on Oct. 25, 2008.

We ride for a lot of different trainers and that gives us many options. I don’t like to have all my eggs in one basket.”Although he was born in Ohio, when he was six his mother returned to her native Puerto Rico. “I was raised there and went to school there,” Maldonado said. “When I turned 18, I came to the States.”Riding was always in his blood and in his family.“My uncle, Manuel Alicea, was a jockey. My grandfather was a jockey, so I wanted to be a jockey ever since I can remember,” said Maldonado, readily recognizable in the mornings donning his familiar red and black garb.“When I was 18, I went to Texas and my uncle taught me how to ride.”In 2001, Maldonado rode his first winner at Assinobia Downs in Winnipeg, Manitoba,  Canada, the same town where Lipton was born.All these years later, for lack of a better description, call it karma.SINGLE TICKET RAINBOW PICK SIX JACKPOT AT MASSIVE $1,049,222With eight consecutive Grade I stakes, highlighted by the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes coming in from New York, Santa Anita will also offer fans a massive 20 cent Single Ticket Rainbow Pick Six Jackpot carryover of $1,049,222 today.With $137,061 in “new” money bet, Friday’s Jackpot pool reached $1,154,902.

Extremadura will seek to get Tenerife in trouble

first_imgHe also talked about the defensive solidity that the team showed against the Galicians, pointing out that “that solidity It’s not just the fault of the first line of four.

The team of is launched Imanol, who does not want to miss the semifinal, although the reality is that inevitably the eyes are going to Anduva. The Real Valladolid travel to Anoeta full of moral after adding seven points of the last twelve, something that has served to get away from the struggle for salvation (follow the match live on As.com). But the danger does not stop and he needs the pucelano box more, although the victory before the Spanish It has given him a peace of mind that can come in handy to face an exit like Anoeta without so much stress. With 29 points, a win against Real would put him looking more up than down. There are two novelties on the list: Joaquin and Nacho, but, in principle, they will not enter the initial eleven, because Sergio Gonzalez It gives continuity to what is working. It will not make drastic changes in the equipment. Maybe the entrance of Fede San Emeterio by Míchel in the center of the field to put more muscle in the wide area. Sandro, who returns to Anoeta after not scoring a single goal as txuri-urdin, and Hervías, trained in Zubieta, will wait on the bench.Imanol will introduce some variant, but will not make any revolution thinking about the Cup.

Alert in Atlético: the economy will be jeopardized if the Champions League does not play

first_imgAtlético has a recent memory of the last time they played the Europa League. In 2018 he won it and received 16.1 million. The next year the distribution is greater than then, but as well as it was sportingly, the figures would not come close to what is handled in the Champions.

And on the other the sporty aspect, going from a major challenge and the dream of the entity for years to a competition that attracts less when it comes to signing and even retaining footballers.If LaLiga resumes, Atlético faces the challenge of climbing at least two positions. At one point he has Getafe and Real Sociedad and two at Sevilla. There are eleven days left, except in the event that the tournament was reactivated and had to be suspended again later: in that case, as now, it would be worth the classification of the moment.

And with him market pool, the share that depends on the television market of each country, last year took 16.2 million falling in eighths.

I’ve taken it for a spin throughout nowadays of confinement and talking with the people who find themselves additionally behind this venture, it appeared to us that it was time to take a step ahead to symbolize the true values ​​of the Real. There are lots of people working in the shade, “he explains to ACE.A kind of touring companions is one other Asturian who’s keen on Sporting de Gijón, however with a lot sympathy for the Real. “I bear in mind one time that we went to Valladolid with David and we have been with some Real followers, and I acknowledge that this contaminated me with the passion that they had and their method of seeing soccer. You deal with him and that feeling grows, it’s a membership that I wish to see, so I’m very enthusiastic about this venture and to see what comes out “, Add Alberto Arrow, director of this new Asturian Royal.

They may determine us after they see us soar onto the sector because of the txuri-urdin colours, in what we name the brand new Atotxa “he factors out Alberto.
