Every race comprising the Breeders’ Cup World Championships provides the chance to witness the splendid horses that reflect the hard work of breeders, trainers, jockeys, owners and backstretch workers. It has been an honor to serve them all during my time at the Breeders’ Cup. I want to thank the women and men of the Breeders’ Cup for their dedication and passion for our event.

I now look forward to new and important challenges and opportunities and the chance to join my family back in California.”“On behalf of our Board and Members, we extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Craig for his outstanding leadership and enormous accomplishments as our President and CEO these past eight years,” said Breeders’ Cup Chairman, Fred Hertrich III. “His management and stewardship of the organization, not to mention his quick wit and calm demeanor, will be greatly missed by all of us.

Llorente donates his Anfield jersey at a charity auction

first_imgMarcos Llorente, the unexpected hero in Anfield, has made a very special donation in the charity raffle #lamejorasistencia sponsored by the ACB in which different sports personalities have contributed precious objects for them. Carlos Sainz jr., Sergio Rodríguez, Bruno Hortelano … And the rojiblanco footballer. All the benefits of this initiative will go to the fight against Covid-19 And Llorente has not hesitated to contribute an object that is already part of the Atletico history: the shirt he wore that night in the cold and hail in Liverpool.Because Llorente, in principle substitute, entered through Diego Costa to provide muscle to an Atlético who saw how Klopp’s Liverpool equaled Saúl’s goal on the way before the break. Already on the field and as soon as overtime began, Liverpool knocked him down, 2-0, the quarters were his. Then that shirt that the red and white half wore appeared in the game to change it forever. A goal, another and an assist. The winning Atlético, 3-2, and fourth finalist. Llorente stretching his black shirt in the corner while all his teammates hugged him. Now it adds another heroicity. Because what is written, despite being an object for the red and white history, the medium has detached itself from it to add its grain of sand in the fight against the pandemic that is raging and has locked up the world. Despite the special meaning that it has for him, that his dog has been baptized with the name of the stadium: Anfield, as revealed on social networks. Both Saúl and Simeone, with two campaign #saldremosjuntos and #lodarestodoThey have also led initiatives to fight with solidarity against the coronavirus.last_img read more

Wolverines finish improbable year

first_imgSBVC (27-7) had its nine-game winning streak snapped and missed a chance to enter the state tournament for the third straight year. Along the way, Gerry Wright became the team’s interim coach after Derrick Pugh was relieved of his duties. Wright started the week in Texas to attend the funeral of his father, Henry Wright, who once was a flight mechanic at Norton Air Force Base. Reserve Leandre Richardson hit a three-pointer and followed with a bank shot on the next possession. The Gauchos never trailed after that point, but it wasn’t easy as the Wolverines were still effective with their pressure and managed to cut the lead to four twice in the final minute. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The Wolverines didn’t have their tallest player, Devon Davis, because of a sprained ankle, Through it all, SBVC won the Foothill Conference regular season title. “When we break from the huddle, we say `1-2-3 family,”‘ said Lance Hurdle, who led all scorers with 27 points and was the Foothill Conference Most Valuable Player. “We didn’t become a team, we became a family and that’s what makes this loss so tough because the family will be breaking up. I love these guys.” Without Davis, Valley faced a height disadvantage and Saddleback prevented the Wolverines from getting inside shots. SBVC made only 4 of 20 from three-point range and couldn’t open its half-court game. “We were getting the shots we wanted, but the shots weren’t falling” said Wright, who has applied for the full-time coaching position. “I think we became impatient and missed some layups.” Saddleback scored nine consecutive points to take a 58-48 advantage with 6:26 remaining in the game. Brandon James, a 6-foot-7 sophomore, scored on an offensive rebound and power forward Gerard Anderson had a dunk after a Valley turnover. center_img SAN BERNARDINO – The San Bernardino Valley College men’s basketball team endured difficult times this season, and Saturday night’s 72-68 loss to Saddleback in the Southern California junior college playoffs was another example of how the team shared strength through the hardships. Saddleback (25-7) overcame Valley’s pressure defense to advance to the eight-team state tournament that begins Thursday in Fresno. last_img

Woeful Argentina on the brink after being pummelled by Croatia

first_img 5 5 In both cases, it seemed easier to score. Rebic gave the first-half a fitting finale by sending the ball deep into the stands after a glorious Modric pass.Caballero’s error was coming. Argentina, crippled with nerves at the back, failed to learn their lesson and the Chelsea man was made to pay.Attempting to scoop the ball over Rebic at the start of the second-half, Caballero instead teed him up. Take nothing away from the striker’s first-time volley into the top corner, though.Jorge Sampaoli paced desperately along the touchline, the Argentine cries grew louder, but their team couldn’t respond. While those in front of him were nowhere near good enough, he could become the man who effectively knocked Messi out of the World Cup.How Group D looks 5 5 5 Okay – ❌Amazing – ✅This is how you celebrate beating #ARG at the #WorldCup! pic.twitter.com/FVFEw9NLza— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) June 21, 2018And as their skipper faltered at the World Cup once more, Croatia’s captain did not. Modric, the classiest player on the Nizhny Novgorod pitch, ignited the stadium by shifting the ball onto his right and bending a sumptuous 25-yard strike past the desolate Caballero in the 80th minute.His partner in crime, Barcelona’s Rakitic, rounded off a move that almost taunted their broken opponents by tapping into an empty net from eight yards as the game, and possibly Argentine hopes, died out.The Albiceleste, who contain a player considered by many to be the greatest of all time, must now place their faith in results elsewhere if Messi is to remain in the tournament.Star manModric was classy in a match devoid of class. Ivan Rakitic compounded Argentine embarrassment with a late third as Lionel Messi failed to inspire his country yet again.Not since 2002 have Argentina failed to reach the knockout stages of a World Cup, but they require a minor-miracle if they are to continue that run in Russia.A deafening rendition of the Argentine national anthem encouraged a bright start from the Albiceleste, but it was Croatia who saw the game’s first real opening as Ivan Perisic forced a superb save from Caballero in the fifth minute.Neither defence deserved a clean sheet from the first-half, but some woeful finishing kept it goalless.Argentina’s Enzo Perez fired wide with the goal at his mercy in the 31st minute, before Mario Mandzukic somehow missed a header from three yards at the other end two minutes later. He just seems to have more time than everyone else. The Croatian skipper didn’t make a bad decision all night and got a goal to match his performance.Moment of the matchThat goal will haunt Caballero. Caballero knows how costly that mistake could be Argentina are on the brink of World Cup elimination as Croatia qualified from Group D with a resounding victory.A Willy Caballero howler allowed Ante Rebic to volley Vatreni in front, but the Chelsea goalkeeper could do little about Luka Modric’s stunning strike.

Copia Challenges Amazon, B&N and Sony: Unveils New E-Book Platform and 6 E-Readers

first_imgFocus on Social Networking FeaturesOn the consumer side, Copia wants to differentiate itself from its competition by giving its users a number of social networking tools. Community profiles on Copia, for example, are linked to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. In addition, the service will offer collaboration tools that are mostly geared towards students. Users can highlight and annotate books, for example, and share these annotations with other users. Copia will also implement a rating system for book reviews.OEM’s will be able to offer all of these features to their users as well. OEMs will also be able to integrate Copia’s e-book store into their own devices.Copia’s E-Readers: Ocean and TidalCopia plans to offer six different e-readers with prices ranging from $199 to $299. The Tidal will offer a six-inch ePaper display and the Ocean will come in a basic six-inch version and two advanced versions with a nine-inch screens. Both of these models will come in three different variations. The most basic models will not offer any wireless connectivity besides Wi-Fi and won’t offer a touchscreen. The intermediate models offer touchscreens, and the high-end versions will offer touchscreens and 3G connectivity. All models come with tilt sensors and 4GB of internal memory.These devices will go on sale on Copia’s site in April. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Tags:#E-Books#news#NYT#web Copia, a new e-book platform, plans to take on the big players in the market by launching its own e-book store and a set of touchscreen e-readers. Copia also wants to combine numerous social networking features with its e-book platform and plans to sell its services to original equipment manufacturers (OEM). Copia’s e-book store will offer over 250,000 books from over 1,500 publishers, as well as 1,400 newspapers and over 750,000 free books from Google Books.Copia’s private, limited-invitation beta will launch this month. The company plans to expand this beta in March.Copia bills itself as a hybrid solution, as the company plans to offer both consumer-facing e-book solutions as well as an open platform for OEMs. Can This Work?We still have a lot of questions about Copia. We don’t know at what price the company plans to sell books and what DRM-solution Copia plans to implement. At the same time, though, the company’s plan to sell both e-books and compatible e-readers looks a lot like Amazon’s strategy and there can be no doubt that Amazon has been quite successful with this model. Copia, however, doesn’t have any name recognition yet and the e-book market is currently dominated by big companies like Amazon, B&N and Sony. If Copia is successful in getting enough OEM partners, though, it could establish itself as another major player in the market. The company’s e-reader lineup also looks like a potential winner.center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting frederic lardinois 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Down 2 goals, Ceres-Negros completes jaw-dropping turnaround vs Persija Jakarta

first_imgBut just when it seemed like the Busmen were running out of ideas, coach Risto Vidakovic sent Tanton and Maher Karic on for OJ Porteria and Kevin Ingreso, which quickly changed the game for Ceres. Unfazed by the 35,000-strong crowd inside one of Asia’s most iconic stadiums, the Busmen walked away with another victory that kept their perfect record after four matches in Group G.The Busmen looked well-placed to top the group as they have opened up a five-point gap ahead of Becamex Binh Duong of Vietnam with two matches remaining. Another point in their next game against Shan United of Myanmar on May 1 could be enough to seal their place in the zonal semifinals.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsBut more than the victory, it was their relentless, never-say-die performance in 25 breathless minutes that once again reinforced their credentials as a favorite to repeat their Asean zonal title win two years ago.There was plenty of drama surrounding the match at the Indonesian capital hours before kickoff with Persija unable to get clearance from police to allow spectators into the stadium.
