Best-case scenario would be a dead-heat for win, but optimism aside, the trainer hopes each at least runs well.“Coco Kisses got stuck down on the fence, and that’s not favorable by any means,” the trainer said of the daughter of Empire Way, who will be making only her second turf start in 14 career races.Ismelucky, a four-year-old daughter of Lucky Pulpit, has not raced since last Oct. 13 and makes her second start on the downhill course at about 6 ½ furlongs on turf, having been unplaced in the restricted Sweet Life Stakes in February 2018.“I freshened her up and gave her time off,” Bonde said, “but she’s training really well.”The Irish O’Brien is for California-bred or sired fillies and mares and goes as race eight: Coco Kisses, Heriberto Figueroa, 15-1; Queen Bee to You, Rafael Bejarano, 6-1; Donut Girl, Flavien Prat, 12-1; Fiery Lady, Drayden Van Dyke, 8-1; Gypsy Blu, Joel Rosario, 4-1; Algorhythmic, Victor Espinoza, 6-1; Ismelucky, Ruben Fuentes, 30-1; Barbara Beatrice, Tiago Pereira, 15-1; X S Gold, Kent Desormeaux, 5-1; S Y Sky, Geovanni Franco, 5-2; and Scathing, Alonso Quinonez, 30-1.LATEST CONTENT FROM XBTV:Improbable (Outside) in company with Once On Whiskey work 6 furlongs (Baffert) 3-30-19Bellafina works 5 furlongs (Callaghan) 3-30-19Enaya Alrabb works 6 furlongs (O’Neill) 3-30-19Market Sentiment (Outside) and Platinum Equity work 4 furlongs (Knapp) 3-30-19Big ‘Cap Memories: Bob Baffert Recalls Game on Dude’s 2011 Victory in the Santa Anita HandicapBig ‘Cap Memories: Mike Smith talks about his three wins in the Santa Anita HandicapBig Cap Memories: Gary Stevens reminisces on his 1990 Santa Anita Handicap victory aboard RuhlmannBig Cap Memories: Tim Yakteen describes Sir Beaufort’s thrilling victory in the 1993 Santa Anita HandicapEmboldened (Outside) and Dabster work 5 furlongs (Baffert) 3-29-19 Omaha Beach (Outside) in company with Next Gen work 4 furlongs (Mandella) 3-29-19Ms Bad Behavior in company with Untouched Elegance work 5 furlongs (Baltas) 3-29-19Draft Pick works 4 furlongs (Eurton) 3-29-19FINISH LINES: Respected clocker Andy Harrington (Nationalturf.com) will be TomQuigley‘s guest handicapper from the XBTV studios Sunday at 11:50 a.m. 14% 12 $493,848 41% 37% 4 41% 52% 20 14% 50% $501,890 Joel Rosario207 Mario Gutierrez102 $804,228 12 $1,146,490 16 5 42% 9 18 13 $481,478 Win% 13 $1,430,892 17 51 23 5 10 Ruben Fuentes86 22 13% 19 2 59% 33% 6 3 Joseph Talamo126 11 Edwin Maldonado67 11 10% Mike Smith69 $875,315 55% 10 Philip D’Amato89 8 16% 23 7 10 Bob Baffert63 16% $204,074 37% 26 16 10% 10 Jeff Mullins47 11% 27% 7 $1,153,057 34 17% $2,751,718 Win% 19 $246,741 $1,390,487 $340,223 2nd $1,097,951 Flavien Prat176 18% Money Won 40% 28 26 Tiago Pereira149 $2,545,756 $974,970 Doug O’Neill163 12% 24 1st Rafael Bejarano138 18 3rd 33% 49% 36 $587,067 $1,076,435 3rd 61% 25 8 6 20 18% 45% $303,819 8 23 22 31 17 25% 18% 1st TrainerMts 13 John Sadler75 Jerry Hollendorfer91 2nd 15 $498,577 10 Mark Glatt65 JockeyMts 16% 16 43% 26 12 13 11 26 $1,134,746 10 $307,251 William E.

Also in the encounter of his debut in First scored other great scorers in the history of perica as Francisco Javier Marcet (who set out 45 minutes against Madrid in 1950), Luis Garcia (at 61 ’of Málaga-Espanyol of the 2005-06 academic year) or Rafa iriondo (in 12 minutes he resolved in 1933 his premiere scorer).Other contrasted gunners needed a tad more time. In his second game for example he turned Dani Osvaldo, just ten years ago, on January 24, 2010 against Mallorca. Too the second time was the charm for Borja Iglesias, against Valencia in 2018. And four days it took Gerard Moreno until you see the door in a Real Sociedad-Espanyol (like today, but in LaLiga) it is now five years.Y in the last decade, three other players debuted with a goal, just like RDT: Jesus Dátolo, on August 29, 2010 before Getafe (it took 21 minutes); Samuele Longo, in Levante-Espanyol on September 2, 2012 (another 21 ’); Y Marc Navarro, on January 21, 2017 against Granada (at 48 minutes). With his goal last Sunday at the Estadio de La Cerámica, at 47 minutes of the crucial match against Villarreal, RDT put its scorer premiere at the height of the two greatest filmmakers in the history of LaLiga. Raúl Tamudo scored in 32 minutes having entered into play in that Hercules-Espanyol of March 23, 1997, in which as now (and as so many times) the Espanyol was played permanence; 128 more targets would end up arriving. Y 51 minutes needed in his first match Rafa Marañón, a Espanyol-Celta in 1974, to establish the first of his 110 league goals as a parakeet. Since LaLiga premiered on February 10, 1929, No club has been as early as Espanyol. Only five minutes were enough for Pitus Prat to establish the first goal in the history of the championship, an insurmountable milestone that, however, for nine decades have continued emulating parakeet scorers. The last to add to such a grenade list is Raúl de Tomás.
Lopetegui expects a possible reinforcement while trying to find the best formula with his current attackers. Nolito played again on the left-handed flank and Ocampos seems untouchable on the right, hence the priority is to give more competition to the Sanluqueño in that position. The option that In Nesyri has a place in that sounds as a companion of De Jong is another possibility that takes shape for the coach. Sevilla is still looking for an attacker who can deliver a quality jump to Julen Lopetegui’s team in the last meters. The last of the names placed on the table is that of Xherdan Shaqiri, who barely has time to play in Liverpool and that would have a clear role on any of the flanks of the nervous attack. This was explained by the BBC, which warns that the intention of the English club is to stay with the player before any unforeseen event that may arise in this course.Sevilla has priority to find a piece that does not involve excessive spending after the arrival of En Nesyri in exchange for 20 million euros. The option of a loan takes weight, although Monchi handles several situations that could accelerate in the coming days. The way of Shaqiri was already studied by Monchi before, as it happened with Draxler, although the market continues to put many difficulties to this type of operations.
The captain wants to arrive but from the club they do not want him to force, beyond the derby is Liverpool, to return to the Champions League positions, his team needs him strong there. Koke trained outside of others, deep in the gym. Herrera and Trippier, while, one part was done on the sidelines, which followed the initial warm-up, with table football, and another, when the ball began to roll, on the grass.It was, there, around the ball when Simeone overturned on the grass his plans for Saturday (4pm). Trippier was with the group to occupy the right back, in the center of the defense, Savic and Felipe, Lodi, left back. The left wing was for Saul, for Thomas and Herrera the midfield, for Correa the right wing. Above, Morata and Vitolo. In the team of substitutes Saponjic, Llorente and Hermoso. Vrsaljko and Lemar retired earlier. It is what it has. Injuries squeeze the Atleti this January and this morning, when the rojiblanco team started training under the gray sky in Majadahonda, they only heated 13 first team field players accompanied by several youth players. Thomas, Lemar, Lodi, Felipe, Saúl, Correa, Savic, Vrsaljko, Saponjic, Hermoso, Vitolo, Llorente and Morata. That is, Koke was missing. That is, missing Herrera and Trippier, in addition to the rest of the injured (Costa, Giménez, João Félix and Arias).
Junior: Paper worthy of the former Bético, who also saw them with a future Blaugrana as Emerson. He did not just go up the band, but was serious in defense.Sergio Busquets: Outstanding in all facets. Keep proving to be very comfortable on Setién’s board. And that the circumstances forced him to finish the central match. Before, he scored an important goal, as it served for the team to go to rest with a two-way tie. Ter Stegen: He was finished four times at the door, in two he finished the ball at the bottom of the net, and in the other two, he stopped the ball with certain difficulties. It must be recognized that one of the goals was a penalty, but in the second goal he conceded he could do something else since Fekir’s shot was not stretched enough. With the ball on his feet, he was more successful than Athletic day.Semedo: The Portuguese side starred in a remarkable game, with a lot of presence in the band, and always looking for depth. He is earning the site on the Setién board.Umtiti: Horrible. Slow, scattered and with hardly any resources. Your game is simply a nonsense by not providing security at any time behind. And the worst part is that he will have to start again the next day against Getafe for the expulsion of Lenglet.Lenglet: Apart from the goal that he scored in the lead, and that in the end he gave the three points to Barcelona, he had to multiply in defense against the absolute inoperance of his compatriot. He did what he could to a specially inspired Fekir. He was expelled in a somewhat innocent way when he saw a second yellow for an unnecessary foul. From Jong: The best. Superlative and we fell short. He gave a football recital that left all Benito Villamarín speechless. And not only for his extraordinary goal, volley after a great control with his chest, but for his ease of breaking lines and helping the team in defense. The Dutchman has shown the great player who is called to be facing the next decade.Vidal: Incombustible, although an error of his in a loss of the ball to make a bad control, precipitated the goal of Fekir. Their ability to fight and sacrifice are non-negotiable. He held 56 minutes in the field. And we must not forget that the Chilean is among cotton because of his right knee.Sergi Roberto: Fatal. One of his worst matches as Blaugrana. It is good to run on the field and give everything in every play, but a minimum of quality is also needed to avoid losing so many balls and become evident every two by three. He is called to suck the bench in important games if he does not make a qualitative leap.Messi: It does not matter if he did not score, although he counted up to three very clear occasions to beat a successful Joel, because his exhibition of assists is unparalleled. He gave De Jong a sniper pass to score the first, served a goal on a plate to Sergio Busquets in a side foul and did the same in another foul to Lenglet. A genius.Griezmann: Blurred completely. And that is not worth saying that he puts on the work overall and is a great team player. He was signed to unbalance and is not meeting expectations. His only contribution was a great assistance between the lines to Messi, which the Argentine missed.CHANGES:Sunrise: His presence gave a plus in the left wing and had Messi as the best partner to combine.Arthur: He had more than one chance to finish the game, but nothing came out.Rakitic: He was in the field and little else.
Barcelona’s problems with Santos for the signing of Neymar continue their course seven years later. According to El Mundo, the Brazilian club has sent a burofax to the Blaugrana entity to request 4.5 million euros as compensation for having played only one of the two friendlies agreed in his day for the transfer of the striker. According to Santos, only the Joan Gamper of 2013 was disputed but not the one they should play in Brazil. This offer made to Barça “as a subscribed criminal clause”, aims to avoid a lawsuit in the ordinary courts once Neymar left in 2017 to the PSG and that friendly can no longer be carried out with the presence of the international in the ranks of Barça.As El Mundo recalls in its information, After signing the signing for the Parisian club, Santos already announced that he would ask 13.4 million to Barça and PSG for the transfer. The Globoesporte portal indicated that Santos claimed a percentage of 5% of the signing of Neymar, some 8.9 million plus 4.5 million for the breach of the friendly. This legal case is not the only one that Barça and Santos have opened for Neymar. Last June, as El Mundo recalls, the National Court agreed to send to the courts of Barcelona the cause opened for crimes of corruption between individuals and fraud following a complaint by the company DIS, owner of a part of the rights of the player . The soccer player, his parents, Bartomeu and Sandro Rosell are being processed. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of February 18, 2020
Although the game, which began with a header from Wijnaldum at 9 minutes that turned into a goal, seemed a priori comfortable for the leaders, soon turned their faces. It didn’t take three minutes for Diop to match the meeting with another big shot, although for the house of the champions of Europe it was seen almost more as an eventuality than as a real problem. But the minutes passed, Fabiansky resisted the trident’s envies and, shortly after the second half began, Fornals, with a semi volley at the first touch, sowed nervousness in the stands. He was not feared so much for the league title, which is more than in his pocket, but for the possibility of confirming that Hercules is not immortal.The goal gave way to the hint of Kloppy’s bugle, after a few minutes in which they kept hitting the wall of David Moyes, Salah, who shot with more faith than real chances of scoring, found a gift from the goal of the hammers, who slipped the ball between their legs.The bewilderment, rage and disbelief took over both West Ham players that Liverpool, who knew how to assert their quality, It was not long before the third was scored by Sadio Mané, who finished the ball to the net at pleasure to keep the incredible streak of his own. Both the reds, those who correctly annulled a goal, and the hammers, who Alisson pulled a hand to hand with his face, had more chances in a crazy final match, but finally the light did not move again and the Pool got a result that wakes you up and reinforces in the face of what is to come. Atlético de Madrid is not aware of the damage it has done to Liverpool. The reality slap of the Metropolitan Wanda had its echo this Monday at Anfield himself, that aging stadium that Enrique Cerezo almost mocked and in which the reds were forced to overcome an adverse result against a West Ham that is in the relegation zone. To flip the marker they had to throw their hearts and all their artillery, as they fired more than 20 times between the three sticks and, two of them, they were stamped by van Dijk and Firmino in the wood.This result allows those of Klopp, in addition to maintaining the advantage of 22 points with Manchester City, equalizing the record of 18 consecutive victories in Premier League, although for this they had to deal with a match in which they conceded more goals than in the last 11 days.
Memories of his childhoodAn interview in which João Félix also spoke of his beginnings, of the memories of his childhood, always hitting a ball. “My father and brother have always loved sports. My father played handball and we played from time to time. He was my coach in Pestinhas. I think I was even younger for the age when I was training and that’s when I started. Those my age still had no competition. He wanted to play ball, whoever he was, there was not as much pressure as now. “At home, he reveals, there are balls scattered everywhere. The secret of his success, in his own mouth:”I just played and had fun. You don’t have to think that you are going to be the next Cristiano Ronaldo or win this and that. You have to have fun and enjoy it to the fullest. “ João Félix is clear: he chose Atlético de Madrid last summer because it was the club where he saw that he could evolve. This is how he himself has confessed to the television of what was his club, Benfica TV. “I feel very happy. It is a dream for any player to be able to play in one of the best teams in the world. Atlético is one of them,” he said. “I had several interested clubs“he also recognized,” but I ended up choosing Atlético because it was the one I liked the most and I think it will give me the best conditions to evolve in my career. We worked very well and that is positive. “Last summer, after an overwhelming appearance in the Benfica first team, everyone loved João Félix. Atlético took him away and made him the most expensive signing in the club’s history, 127 million euros, 19 years old, although in these months He has had comments against (Cassano for example the last) and in favor (always Futre) for his price and for choosing Atlético.The LaLiga break came when João Félix played his best minutes at Atlético, once he had overcome a muscle injury. His game was not only sparks, moments, but he intervened, dominated and commanded. He has participated in 24 games, 2,114 minutes, with six goals and three assists. But he does not forget where he comes from, his beginnings in Benfica. “I remember when there were national team matches and players were missing in the first team training. They called team B footballers and juniors. The first time I went, I was still 16 years old. At first I was nervous, which is normal. As training progresses, you see there are eleven players running behind the ball and playing soccer. Being inside, you end up forgetting that Luisão or Andre Almeida they are there, “revealed the Portuguese club on television.
