Native Trail will face seven rivals when it puts its undefeated record on the line in the Darley Dewhurst Stakes in Newmarket on Saturday.

Since making an impressive start to his career at Sandown in June, Charlie Appleby’s colt has clinched a narrow Superlative Stakes victory at the July Newmarket course and won an emphatic National Stakes winner at Curragh.

The Oasis Dream colt is a favorite to follow in the hoofprints of former Appleby-trained star Pinatubo, who won the National Stakes two years ago before following the Rowley Mile.

One of the biggest threats to Native Trail appears to be Roger Varian’s Bayside Boy, who lines up after a victory in the Champagne Stakes in Doncaster.

Irish hopes are carried by Straight Answer, coached by Ger Lyons, who was completed earlier in the week, and by first-time winner Glounthaune, who gave Aidan O’Brien an eighth success at Dewhurst.

Hugo Palmer has made no secret of his esteem for Dubawi Legend, while Dave Loughnane’s Go Bears Go tries to get a third chance at Group 1 after getting close to the Phoenix Stakes and Middle Park in his last matches. appearances.

Royal Ascot winner Berkshire Shadow (Andrew Balding) and Dhabab (John and Thady Gosden) complete the lineup.

Outpost favorite MC Muldoon is one of six riders for Willie Mullins in the international Cesarewitch of Together For Racing.

The Closutton manager has saddled the last three winners of the prestigious remaining handicap and seems determined to add to his tally – with MC Muldoon joined by defending champion Great White Shark, Micro Manage, Whiskey Sour, Burning Victory and Foveros.

Mullins, accustomed to making history, aims to become the first coach to win a fourth Cesarewitch since Matthew Dawson tied William Day’s race record with Stone Clink in 1886.

He said, “Any of these long-distance handicaps is still a target. The prize money has also increased significantly in the race, and chasing big prize money is always another of our goals.

“With the two combined together, it becomes an obvious race to do – and since we buy a lot of old Flat horses to go jumping, it’s easy for them to get back into a race like this.

“The Cesarewitch is something that we can consider for a number of our horses, so we keep it in mind – and as the season progresses we refine our focus on the good ones a bit more.

“It is a privilege to have horses good enough to participate in these races and it would be an honor to equal the record. We will try our luck with the team we bring. “

Among his riders, Mullins added, “MC Muldoon is in good shape, and I think the track and the trip will suit him. His last run over hurdles in Galway was good preparation for this.

“The racing conditions were suitable for Burning Victory in France, and she will likely return to France after that and then continue her hurdling career through the winter.

“Jason Watson gave Great White Shark a good lap in the race last year. It’s going to be very difficult for her to come back and be very competitive in a handicap like this after some free time. She loves the track and will take care of everything, so she gives it a try.

“It looks like Whiskey Sour has been around forever, but he’s still only eight years old and in good shape. The travel and the terrain won’t be a problem for him so hopefully he will have his usual good race.

“Foveros is an authorized gelding which gained soft ground at Longchamp before coming to us. He had a great race in Galway. This run places him well here with an 8th 3lb chance.

“Micro Manage would certainly have the capacity, and I think the trip should remain. He might want to settle down a bit better, and he needs to learn a bit more about running.

The following is a press release from the Idaho Falls Rotary Club on Wednesday.

IDAHO FALLS – Earlier this afternoon, the Rotary Club of Idaho Falls, a local service organization, presented the city of Idaho Falls with a check for $ 700,000 to help develop the city’s newest park , Heritage Park. The check was presented at the club’s weekly luncheon which was also attended by Idaho Falls Mayor Rebecca Casper and Idaho Falls Director of Parks and Recreation PJ Holm.

“The $ 700,000 is in addition to the roughly $ 100,000 the club has already donated for the project and an additional $ 100,000 to be donated later this year when this phase of the project is expected to come to an end,” Rotarian Kerry Hammon explains. .

This year marked the 30th anniversary of the Great Snake River Greenbelt Duck Race. Over those 30 years, over $ 5.5 million has been raised, with matching funds from the City of Idaho Falls. All proceeds will go towards improving the River Walk / Greenbelt. Profits have gone specifically to Heritage Park over the past five years.

“Everyone wins when it comes to the Duck Race. Even if you didn’t win a grand prize, you have the satisfaction of knowing that your duck adoptions have served such an incredible project that generations will enjoy for many years to come, ”adds Hammon.

According to the master plan of the heritage park, “The heritage park of more than 14 acres is made possible through a donation of land and commitments from private and non-profit partners and aims to showcase the natural, cultural and Idaho Falls landmark. The park’s advantageous location along the Snake River presents a wonderful opportunity to add to the Idaho Falls park system. ”

Duck race participants adopt ducks online for a chance to win a jeep, 4 wheeler and many other prizes. The event includes a classic car cruise, dinner and concert the night before, as well as various activities on the day of the event, including speedboat races, a car show and food vendors, the all culminating with the famous duck fall.

“The 19,000 ducks were adopted much earlier this year, making it the most successful year to date,” says Hammon.

This year’s grand prize was a 2014 Jeep Rubicon, courtesy of Idaho Falls Cars & Truck. The first prize was a 2021 Polaris Sportsman HD 4-wheeler, courtesy of the Idaho Central Credit Union.

We hosted a first event last week at the IRONMAN 70.3 Memphis, and another is scheduled for Sunday in Europe with the first Budva-Montenegro Challenge.

Budva-Montenegro challenge date and time

The race starts at 07:00 local time on Sunday 10 October. It’s 0600 UK time. The Pro Men start first, with the Pro Women five minutes later at 7:05 am local time.

How to follow the Budva-Montenegro Challenge live

There will be “live updates” on the Challenge Family website during the race – which in the absence of words flux Where broadcast, we’ll assume for now that this will be limited to text / images – and we’ll be pleasantly surprised if there is more!

Of course, if we find out any other details, we’ll let you know right here.

Budva-Montenegro Challenge

Who is racing?

The female champion of the Challenge Roth 2021 will race in Lanzarote on Saturday, and the male champion – two-time IRONMAN world champion Patrick lange – will be busy Sunday in Montenegro. Thanks to his victory at Roth and his performance at IRONMAN Tulsa, Lange has now become the world No.4 in PTO.

Lange’s points average is actually slightly weighed down by his fourth place in the Challenge Gran Canaria, and so a good result in Montenegro could easily see him overtake Sam Long in third. This difference would be worth $ 10,000 at the end of the year!

from denmark Magnus ditlev (he duct tape bike) would appear to be Lange’s biggest competition. Second in the Family The Championship Challenge and eighth at the IRONMAN 70.3 World’s, he is currently # 15 in the standings, but misses a victory in 2021. He will surely have to escape on the bike to stay clear of Lange’s quick feet. . If he’s having one of his good swimming days, that’s totally realistic.

The women’s race could – without Lisa Norden – have similarities to last Sunday’s Challenge Salou. Well, hopefully with a swim and no duathlon this time of course.

Els Visser (2nd), Lucy Hall (3rd) and Emma Bilham (4th) are all set to run. Barely a minute separated them in Spain, although adding a swim might shake things up a bit.

We haven’t (yet at least) been able to get our hands on an official starting roster, so there may well be a few other contenders that we’re not even aware of.

Prize money: what’s at stake?

A purse of 19,000 euros is offered, which means a top prize of 3,500 euros for winners with checks paid at six depths.

  1. 3,500 euros
  2. 2,100 euros
  3. € 1,400
  4. 1150 euros
  5. 850 euros
  6. 500 euros

The event will contribute to the Family World Bonus Challenge, while the race’s PTO World Ranking Points will potentially impact an athlete’s PTO point score and position in the year-end race for the ranking. This prize pool has a total value of $ 2 million.

All in all, a lot more to play for than the six checks awarded on Sunday.

Paris-Roubaix Femmes: Did the inaugural edition live up to the enthusiasm, and what follow-up for the race? https://tasman-series.com/paris-roubaix-femmes-did-the-inaugural-edition-live-up-to-the-enthusiasm-and-what-follow-up-for-the-race/ https://tasman-series.com/paris-roubaix-femmes-did-the-inaugural-edition-live-up-to-the-enthusiasm-and-what-follow-up-for-the-race/#respond Tue, 05 Oct 2021 07:54:05 +0000 https://tasman-series.com/paris-roubaix-femmes-did-the-inaugural-edition-live-up-to-the-enthusiasm-and-what-follow-up-for-the-race/ We only had to wait 118 years.

We only had to wait 118 years.

The first Paris-Roubaix Femmes got off to a flying start on Saturday with Lizzie Deignan opening the race count with a solo victory of 82 km, jumping to the front of the peloton on the first section of cobblestones.

Paris-Roubaix has often seemed to be the domain of cycling’s “tough men” forever, but eventually the “tough women” were allowed to show their mettle on the rough. pave from northern France.

Now that the mud has dried and dust has settled on the opening of Paris-Roubaix Femmes, did she live up to expectations, how will she remember it, what will her place be? in the history of cycling, and what needs work?

Let’s dive in.

Did it meet expectations?

Yes, and then some.

The inaugural edition of Paris-Roubaix Femmes delivered a lot of action, excesses, dramas and upheavals. The only major disappointment was the fact that we couldn’t see the peloton hitting the first cobblestone sector, after coverage was limited to the last 60 kilometers, which ultimately meant the winning move couldn’t be watched by no one other than those stationed. on the paved area.

Nonetheless, what we saw was quite an epic fit for the occasion which was only added by rain and mud.

While it would have been nice to see a little tighter competition for victory, Lizzie Deignan’s solo race was a huge effort worthy of her gritty surroundings. His lead has never been greater, but in conditions where avoiding others was just as difficult as staying on his bike, his lonely ride up front proved to be the better choice.

Marianne Vos’s ultimate effort to bring Deignan back added some late drama to the proceedings but – even for the great Vos – the gap was too big to close.

The riders put on a fantastic show during the first edition of Paris-Roubaix Femmes and we just have to wait six months before the second edition.

How will we remember it?

Mud, mostly.

When we look at the pictures in twenty years or so, it will be the mud-stained faces that stand out. If Paris-Roubaix has its own myth in the world of cycling, a wet Roubaix is ​​quite another thing.

Marianne Vos summed it up very well by saying: “I think maybe it should have been like that, that the first edition was like that with these conditions with the mud and the rain. It even made it more epic.

As the smallest details of the day fade into memory, another aspect of the race will remain etched in the history books and in the minds of those who watched it: Lizzie’s Day Race. Deignan. She wasn’t meant to be the leader of Trek-Segafredo, but a fortuitous split allowed her to gain the advantage and she would not be seen by the others until they reached the velodrome.

As if her race wasn’t dangling enough, she did the whole race without gloves.

What is its place in history?

A historic trophy for the women's peloton

There is no doubt that the first edition of Paris-Roubaix Femmes was a historic moment for cycling. Until Saturday, the peloton had never ridden anything like this before and the riders cycled into the unknown as they exited the town of Denain in northern France shortly after 1:30 p.m.

Not so long ago, organizer ASO declared that there was no appetite for a female Paris-Roubaix. Whether or not that was true at the time, there was certainly a desire for it when it was first announced in 2020 and even more so after another year of waiting.

Read also : Lizzie Deignan on the triumph of Paris-Roubaix Femmes: “We are part of history now, there is no going back”

The very first Paris-Roubaix Women is not a turning point for women’s cycling, to say that would be to forget everything that has happened in the last ten years. It is a sign of the enormous momentum that the female side of sport has taken and it is another important step on the road to parity, in all its aspects, with men.

Ten years ago, the idea of ​​the powerful ASO to create a Paris-Roubaix for women would have seemed unimaginable. However, he now hosts this in addition to creating a Liège-Bastogne-Liège Women and there is a Tour de France Women just around the corner.

Meanwhile, the peloton is becoming more professional and companies are knocking on the door of the UCI to register for the WorldTour. A Paris-Roubaix Femmes is a sign of the progress made for the women’s peloton.

What needs work?

Less TV coverage meant fans missed Lizzie Deignan's big attack

As is often the case with new releases, there are always some glitches and glitches that need to be fixed for the second time.

First and foremost, live television images. Maybe we should be thankful for everything as ASO must have been reluctantly forced to give live coverage of their other women’s races just a few years ago.

However, it would have been a fantastic showcase for the race if the television footage had started at least when the riders were first expected on the cobbles. The main action was always going to take place on the cobblestones and not showing the first sectors was a short-sighted gesture on the part of the organizer.

Best cash prize. In the big debate over what is needed to further promote women’s cycling, the cash prizes are slightly lower than TV coverage. However, it looks like a kick in the teeth when you see Deignan only received € 1,535 compared to Sonny Colbrelli’s € 30,000 for winning the men. The overall prize pool for the women was only € 7,005 while the men had € 91,000 divided between them.

Read also : Here’s what Marianne Vos and Elisa Longo Borghini said after Lizzie Deignan left with Paris-Roubaix Femmes

Of course, it will take time to reach the same amounts for men and women, but such a big disparity is just not difficult for ASO.

The last of the big improvements needed to return to racing in six months is better timing. It looks like next year’s men’s and women’s races will take place on the same day. Hopefully ASO will organize a common team presentation for all the teams so as not to divide the loyalty of the fans. It is hoped that they also don’t start the women’s race so obnoxiously early that they will be forced to eat plates of pasta at 5:30 a.m.

If they ever held it separately, the need to plan better by hosting the men’s team presentation during the women’s race ensured that some would have to choose between which race they wanted to support, from the fans to the media.

There were other little things that sometimes made the race feel like it was flying by the seat of its pants. Large queues formed in the media accreditation area before the race, as it seemed that the organizer was surprised at the number of people who wanted to cover the race, while finding the WIFI password for the race. media center was as difficult as figuring out what was at the start of the race.

These are simple fixes that should hopefully be ironed out as the race finds its way onto the calendar.

SACRAMENTO, Calif .– This weekend brings a unique event for the NARC-King of the West Fujitsu Sprint Cars with the second annual Morrie Williams Legends Tribute Race scheduled for October 9 at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford.

The event will be the second of two nights of three-eighth mile racing with the Cotton Classic featuring the Sprint Car Challenge Tour 360 sprint cars and Kings of Thunder 410 sprint cars taking place on Friday night.

Kings of Thunder 360 sprint cars will join NARC-KWS on the second night.

With classes scheduled, Hanford is the perfect location this weekend for any West Coaster who enjoys the sight and sounds of roaring winged sprint cars.

Saturday pays tribute to legendary West Coast car owner Morrie Williams. Williams passed away two years ago after putting several of the sport’s best drivers in the seats of his infamous No.0 over decades. Among those driving for Williams was none other than Keller Auto Speedway promoter Peter Murphy.

The Saturday night format will feature a pair of 20-lap Fujitsu General USA events. The second feature will be lined up with a complete reversal of the arrival of the first outside of the cars overtaken as a tribute to Williams who preferred to watch a driver win it with a load from behind. To be won, over $ 36,000 in cash prizes.

Each Fujitsu feature is configured to pay $ 3,200 to the winner, creating a possible salary of $ 6,400 to any driver who can win the sweep. The overall champion will earn an additional $ 2,000 for his efforts. While points will be scored for the two main events, only the first of the two features will award points in the NARC-King of the West Fujitsu Championship standings.

Last year, in a storybook-worthy finale, Kyle Hirst and Dominic Scelzi won the features of the Morrie Williams No. 0 twin machines in the inaugural edition of the event.

Scelzi leads the series into the weekend as he continues to close out his first NARC title. He has a streak of nine consecutive top-five rankings and an average of 2.2 over that span. The Fresno native owns a pair of King of the West triumphs at Keller Auto Speedway and has already won three races at Hanford this year.

Behind Scelzi is Tim Kaeding, and he will start the weekend with nine consecutive top 10 results. TK’s second place last weekend marked his fourth consecutive top five of the series at Hanford, and he will try his 11th victory at the Keller Auto Speedway KWS on Saturday.

Over the past weekend, Keller Auto Speedway continued a recent trend of producing NARC-King of the West winners for the first time. Corey Day did not triumph until his 10th start in the series, marking the third time in the past five seasons that a first-time winner has come out of Hanford.

One driver who could continue the trend is Joel Myers Jr. The 15-year-old driver continued to impress after finishing on the podium in his second start in the series earlier this year. Myers Jr. looked set for another top-three race last Saturday at Hanford until an incident forced him to settle for 11th.

Other expected entries include a pair of Hanford natives in DJ Netto and Mitchell Faccinto, Kyle Hirst, four-time series titlist, Campbell’s Bud Kaeding, Roseville’s Sean Becker, Benicia’s Billy Aton, Clovis’ Sean Watts. , Austin McCarl of Iowa, and more.

Carrytheone: won at Gowran Park last month for coach Johnny Murtagh

Caroline Norris (racingpost.com/photos)

Monday: 3.35 Tipperary
Coolmore US Navy Flag Concorde Stakes (Group 3) | 7½f | 3 years + | RTV

Johnny Murtagh’s Carrytheone enters the contest fresher than most given that his 7f Gowran Park win last month was only his second start of the season.

Carrytheone won with some authority by ceding ground to Gowran and the handicapper thought the performance was impressive enough to raise him to a 106 (down from 101).

He will still have to improve to win, but given that he doesn’t have a lot of miles on the clock and manages this soft terrain, he is the obvious starting point in the search for the winner.

Ado McGuinness won this Group 3 award 12 months ago with Current Option and Casanova represents the same connections. However, Pretreville looks the more interesting of McGuinness’s two runners given he has decent form and is versatile on the ground.

A seven-time winner in France, Pretreville changed hands for 95,000gns in horse training sales and is a fascinating rider given he has the highest score of 112.

A Ma Chere represents Dermot Weld, who has won it five times since 2010. Winner of one of his six starts, A Ma Chere will manage the field but must find improvements to be in the reshuffle.

Loch Lein could prove to be a much bigger threat to the boys. She proved how well she does on soft ground by winning a Listed prize on 7f at Deauville in July. Close third in the Group 3 Scepter Stakes on much faster ground at Doncaster last time around, she ranks a major player here.

Joseph O’Brien also has a strong hand with Snapraeterea, Rocket Science and Emphatic Answer.


What they say

Johnny Murtagh, Carrytheone Coach
He came out of Gowran Park very well. He has a little to do on the odds but is doing very well at home.

Ado McGuinness, coach of Casanova and Pretreville
Casanova is worth it at this level and comes here in good shape. Pretreville is a new recruit from France and he is a beautiful horse. He’s the highest rated in the line-up and seems versatile on the ground, though he wouldn’t want him to be super soft.

Joseph O’Brien, Snapraetera, Rocket Science and Emphatic Answer trainer
The course and distance should be fine for Snapraeterea and he will appreciate the soft terrain. He’s a Listed winner and we hope he can win at Group 3 level. Rocket Science is still doing well at Tipperary. She did well at Gowran Park last week and we hope for another good race from her. We were happy with Emphatic Answer and the way it trained. It’s probably as sharp as she would like, but she’s in good shape and we would love if she could get some black dude.

Jessica Harrington, Loch Lein coach
She is in great shape and we hope she will have a really big race. Seven stadiums on loose ground will be fine and we are very optimistic.

Shortleaf Stable’s Plainsman got off the beat, took the lead with a furlong to run, and outscored 1-2 favorite Beau Liam over to win Saturday’s 29th Ack Ack renewal for $ 300,000 (grade 3) at Churchill Downs from a pitch.

Plainsman, a 6-year-old son of Flatter, ran a mile on a fast track in 1: 33.85, which was just 0.07 off Pants On Fire’s 2013 stakes record (1:33 , 78) and 0.59 off Fruit Ludt’s 2014 record. (1: 33.26).

Joel Rosario rode the winner for coach Brad Cox, who swept the Saturday stakes at Churchill Downs. Two races earlier, Knicks Go won the G3 Lukas Classic.

For Rosario, it was his fifth victory that day, marking the 72nd time a jockey has accomplished this feat and the first since Florent Geroux won five races on nine mounts on September 4, 2020. All nine Rosario’s mounts earned $ 603,170 on the day.

Atoka, with Mr. Dumas in tow, led the pack of nine older horses on the back stretch in the mile of a lap through fractions of: 22.65,: 45.21 and 1: 09.15 with Plainsman sat out of the beat and in the clear.

Leaving the turn after a movement of three wide, Plainsman was fifth behind the leaders and leaned in to separate Mr. Dumas on the rail and Atoka on the outside. He took the lead with an eighth of a mile left and turned in favor of Beau Liam, who made his Stakes debut after winning his first three starts.

“I was able to have a good trip for most of the race,” said Rosario. “I knew that when I got home I would have a decision to make between keeping him inside or going out. I knew I had a lot of horses under me and the race went well for him.

The top prize was $ 178,800 and pushed Plainsman’s bankroll to $ 729,207 with a record 8-6-3 out of 25 starts. It was his fourth career victory. Previously, he won the 2018 G3 Discovery at the age of three and won the $ 50,000 Jim Rasmussen at Prairie Meadows and the $ 85,000 Michael G. Schaefer Memorial at Indiana Grand earlier this year.

“This horse has been in great shape this year,” said Cox. “I think two turns is probably his best distance, but today he managed to do a good run outside of the mile pace at one turn. He showed a lot of adversity today and put in a good effort.

Six of the last eight Ack Ack winners – Pants On Fire (2013), Tapiture (2015), Tom’s Ready (2016), Awesome Slew (2017), Seeking the Soul (2018) and Mr. Money (2020) – entered on the run. as a springboard for the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, which is slated for November 6 in Del Mar with a million dollar purse. Cox not comital at Plainsman’s next departure.

Plainsman paid $ 13.60, $ 3.80 and $ 3.20 with odds of 5-1. Beau Liam, ridden by Brian Hernandez Jr., paid $ 2.60 and $ 2.40. Atoka was still 2 ¾ lengths in third under Rafael Bejarano and paid $ 8 to show.

Rushie, South Bend, Mr Dumas, Guest Suite, Disculpatory and Mo Mosa completed the order of arrival. Ebben and Aloha West were wiped out.

Plainsman, bred from Street Sense SS Pinafore mare, was bred in Kentucky by Joseph Minor.

The race is named after Cain Hoy’s 1971 Horse of the Year, Ack Ack, who is entered in the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. In his only appearance at Churchill Downs, Ack Ack won the 1969 Derby Trial clocking 1: 34.40, a one-mile record that has since been eclipsed.

“It’s a race we prepared him for and doing the job, well half done, is quite satisfying. The team did a very good job with this horse. He’s been up all year. We gave him a sprucing up and Johnny Allen it was probably a 10 out of 10. I gave him a cake last night but he’s just a phenomenal jockey, he’s in good shape and I’m delighted. that he won that one.

Maher acknowledged the similarities with Persan, who finished fifth in last year’s Cup behind Twilight Payment.

“They’ve been working out most of this season and just spaced their runs with a refresh here and there when we decided to target this race. It’s great when a shot goes off, so go ahead and up to the next one.

Allen has won several times on the Grand Promenade, but he will not be able to ride light enough to take the steed in the Cup.

“He was a good horse for me. He’s such an honest horse, he always gives his all and the race could not have gone better for us today, ”he said.

“He traveled well and I was able to appear in front of them in the straight line. was probably in front [early], as you know it’s a long straight and it took a long time, but we weren’t going that fast in the straight and i couldn’t hear anything coming, so it was a good feeling for them. Last 50 meters.

Tasmanian trainer Bill Ryan says his top-flight mare Still A Star gives him a reason to get up in the morning.

Ryan suffers from an incurable lung disease and knows that every time he can see his stable star go to the races it is a bonus.

With COVID raging in Victoria, Ryan was unable to make the trip across Bass Strait for Group 2 Rose Of Kingston Stakes, so he handed custody of stylish English miler Toronado’s daughter to his own. daughter, Monica.

Both made him proud when the five-year-old stood up in the last stride to topple underdog Pride Of Jenni. It was a real family affair, as winning jockey Luke Currie is a godson of Ryan,

Now an even bigger prize, in the form of Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes at Flemington on Derby Day, awaits you. This victory means that if Still A Star can follow up with another victory, his connections will receive a bonus of $ 1 million.

“It’s the big dream at the end of the day. It was just awesome. I can’t believe it, but the Pink Empire would be the icing on the cake, ”said Monica Ryan after the race.

Currie, who is no stranger to high-profile success, was moved by it nonetheless. “I thought maybe the second could have made us a little vulnerable [but] she put her head in danger.

The massive Operation Godolphin is usually front and center on big days, and Saturday was no exception as James Cummings’ Melbourne team sent in a Group 2 brace within 40 minutes with Kementari in the Gilgai Stakes. and the outsider Kallos in Danehill. Challenges.

Kementari has been a frustrating galloper for punters ever since his stud career was cut short and returned to racing as a gelding, invariably profiling himself as if he was going to win a race before he did not land the loot. .

But Damien Oliver rode him to perfection in the Flemington straight and produced him just in the shadow of the post to win in a tight finish.

The young rider Fred Kersley has just started his career and is starting to forge a relationship with Godolphin. The partnership paid off when he managed to snag one of his biggest wins in the Danehill Stakes aboard the team’s ‘second string’ Kallos, who scored $ 12 from regular sprinter General Beau. and Bruckner.

Oliver was on board the elected stable, Ingratiating, strongly supported, who beat only two at home.

Notre-Dame, Indiana – Florida State’s No. 29/18 cross-country teams competed among 22 seeded teams at the Joe Piane Invitational hosted by Notre Dame on Friday.

The 18th-ranked women’s team started the day finishing seventh in 5K and the No. 29 men took fourth place in the 5-mile race.

As the Burke Golf Course raced slower than usual, on a hot, dry and sunny fall morning in the Midwest, senior Adriaan Wildschutt claimed his third victory of the season in a dominant fashion, crossing the line with a time of 23: 06.7 in the 5 mile race.

“It was a special race for him today,” said FSU head coach Bob Braman. “I have been coming to this competition as a coach and athlete for 30 years and have never seen anyone break 23 minutes. It was one of the fastest times of all time, and it wasn’t one of the fastest days of all time. It’s very exciting for him.

Wildschutt led the Noles to fourth place (204) behind No.19 Furman (129), No.25 Michigan (150) and No.10 Butler (177). FSU edged Southern Utah (207), No.15 Alabama (225), No.28 Weber State (227) and No.18 Ole Miss (236).

Les Séminoles also finished in front of n ° 2 Notre Dame (11e, 286), No. 30 Purdue (13e, 316) and No. 26 Indiana (14e, 325).

“The guys ran really well,” said Braman. “Especially those top five. I was very excited about it. We had a lot of big wins today and were very close to the third.

Much like his victory at the Open FSU XC, Wildschutt crossed the three-mile mark. He built his lead to almost 14 seconds throughout the race. The Ceres, South Africa native ended up winning by just under five seconds after Jonathan Davis of Illinois made a big push at the end.

Since joining the ACC in 1991, Wildschutt is the first Seminole in the history of the school to achieve three consecutive victories in a single season for the men’s team. He also has four career invitational wins in five tries in Garnet and Gold.

Ahmed Muhumed also produced his third top 10 this season, placing seventh with a time of 23: 36.7.

Paul Stafford and Jacob Holmes ran most of the race together, Stafford finished in 52nd place (24: 34.5) ahead of Holmes in 59th (24: 38.0). Silas Griffith completed the scoring five in 85th place (24: 52.8).

“Ahmed’s run was great,” said Braman. “Paul and Jacob also ran really hard. Silas was in pain, but he came back with a bang and we had some big wins.

In the women’s 5K, the Seminoles were seventh with a total of 253 points behind No.2 NC State (48), No.3 New Mexico (104), No.6 Alabama (157), # 8 Washington (199), # 7 Minnesota (202), and # 15 Ole Miss (215).

FSU finished ahead of Kentucky (278), Toledo (302), No. 29 Furman (314), Butler (327), No. 23 Illinois (331), among others.

“I am satisfied with our efforts,” said Braman. “We’re a bit of a tired team right now. They are learning my training program and it is very tiring, but they fought well. We will be much better in two weeks and all they can control is give their maximum effort and they did it today.

After taking the lead early, Ryan finished the race in 20e place with a time of 16: 43.3, which was the fastest 5K of his career.

“Lauren took the lead,” added Braman. “She came out for the win. She was in pain at the end, but she held onto the team. Getting to the front lines early was a great learning experience for her.

Maudie Skyring, Amanda Beach and Agnes McTighe crossed the line very close to each other, Skyring dropping from 59th place at the mile checkpoint to finish 41st at 16:56.3 just ahead of Beach at 42nd ( 16: 57.0). McTighe took 46th place in 16: 58.6.

In her first race of the season, senior Jen Lima finished with a personal best of 17: 25.8 for the 95th and Rebecca Clark completed the score of five finishing 99th at 17: 27.2.

Alexander Asics Invitational (October 2): http://milesplit.live/meets/414140
