(June 23, 2019)–Under a perfectly timed ride from Rafael Bejarano, longshot Majestic Eagle rallied from fifth a quarter mile from home and kept to his task in game fashion to get up and win Sunday’s Grade III, $100,000 American Stakes at Santa Anita by a neck. Trained by Neil Drysdale, the 4-year-old colt by Medaglia d’Oro got one mile on turf in 1:34.57.An attentive fifth, in field of six 3-year-olds and up, Majestic Eagle appeared full of run leaving the three furlong pole as Bejarano continued to save as much ground as possible while in the two-path around the far turn. At the top of the lane, he turned him loose and in a thrilling stretch run, he was able to outrun a pair of Mark Glatt trainees, Law Abidin Citizen and favored Sharp Samurai.Most recently fifth in the Grade I Triple Bend Stakes at seven furlongs on dirt May 25, Majestic Eagle was off at 9-1 and paid $20.00, $7.40 and $3.40.Out of the Tapit mare Double Tapped, Majestic Eagle, who is owned by John Lindley and Ray Morton, picked up his first stakes win while notching his third victory from 17 overall starts. With the winner’s share of $60,000, he increased his earnings to $240,410.Law Abidin Citizen, who was ridden by Tiago Pereira, finished a nose in front of Sharp Samurai and paid $6.20 and $2.80 while off at 6-1.Sharp Samurai, off at 1-2, didn’t have any apparent excuses while running third, 2 ¼ lengths in front of Tartini. Ridden by Victor Espinoza, Sharp Samurai paid $2.10 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.65, 47.09, 1:10.40 and 1:22.41.

Police Commissioner Leslie James has sent out a firm warning to all drivers who are involved in accidents: abstain from driving away from the scene, especially when persons are injured.He made that statement on Friday after observing that, despite being uninjured, persons are leaving accident scenes to avoid any culpability for their actions.“We’ve seen persons getting involved in accidents, some fatal, and leaving scenes; and when we investigate, there appears to be no reason for (them) leaving those scenes.There was no threat to the driver, but they were aware that they did strike a human being, a reasonable person,” James detailed.While noting that this is a serious offence, he warned that matters of this sort would be seriously addressed, to ensure that persons are prosecuted for such offences.“If you are involved in an accident, Police Stations are spread across our country. Make a report to the nearest Police Station. It’s a stance we’ve taken, and we’ll be addressing this matter seriously,” James warned.This caution comes days after two teens on a motorcycle were struck down at Annandale on the East Coast of Demerara (ECD), and the driver involved in that accident fled the scene.The pillion rider in that accident, 15-year-old Karchand Khemraj of Lot 44 Annandale Public Road, ECD, succumbed to his injuries at the Georgetown Public Hospital on Monday at about 03:30h.Motorcyclist Razid Shaw, a 16-year-old of Lot 35 Annandale Public Road, ECD, was admitted at the said hospital, and is still in critical condition there.Police information disclosed that the cyclist and pillion rider rode out of a northern access road on to the main road when the minibus GWW 2140, which was proceeding east along the northern carriageway, collided with their vehicle.As a result of the impact, the youths were tossed onto the road surface and sustained head injuries, while the driver of the bus made good his escape without rendering any assistance.The driver of the minibus, who allegedly is responsible for the accident, is still on the run.Traffic Chief Linden Isles has confirmed that Police are currently hunting a known suspect involved in this fatal hit-and-run. He informed that Police are on the lookout for a Chinese national who is believed to be the driver of the minibus that was involved in the accident.The bus was stashed in a bond at Mon Repos, ECD, on Thursday afternoon, while the suspect is still on the run.
The treatment of Amrabat after he first went down against Iran was widely ridiculed, with the doctors splashing water over his head before appearing to repeatedly slap him in the face.“This is yet another alarming example of a player being put in harm’s way,” FifPro said in a statement.FIFA introduced new protocol after the 2014 World Cup, including allowing players to have three-minute checks for concussion on the pitch after head injuries.Those changes came after a number of incidents during the tournament four years ago in Brazil, including when Germany midfielder Christoph Kramer had to be replaced in the final.FifPro said that those new guidelines were not followed in the case of 31-year-old Amrabat, who impressed in the 1-0 loss to Portugal which saw Morocco knocked out of the competition.“Amrabat returned to action too soon according to medical guidelines,” added FifPro.“Four years on from the debacle of the last World Cup, where several players did not receive adequate care, football has not made sufficient progress in concussion management. Repeated calls to implement world-class safety standards have been overlooked.”Morocco team doctor Abderazzak El Hifti insisted Tuesday that he had respected the recommendations of FIFA “point by point”.Amrabat spent two nights under observation in hospital after the Iran game, but his coach Herve Renard hailed him as a “warrior” for playing the full 90 minutes against Portugal.“Amrabat is a warrior, he wanted to play,” said the Frenchman after Wednesday’s match.“He had the protection he took off during the match, his spirit is incredible and I feel happy to have such a player.“After all, I’m not a doctor, the medical reports are read by competent people… Then they take their responsibilities and the player also takes his own responsibilities.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Nordin Amrabat played the entirety of Morocco’s match against Spain despite suffering concussion five days before © AFP / Yuri CORTEZMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Jun 20 – The decision to allow Moroccan midfielder Nordin Amrabat to take to the field at the World Cup on Wednesday just five days after suffering concussion has been criticised by players’ union FifPro.The Watford winger was substituted in Morocco’s opening 1-0 defeat by Iran on Friday after a clash of heads with Vahid Amiri, but started his team’s match against Portugal wearing head protection, before throwing it to the side of the pitch in the 16th minute.
Malky Mackay 1 Malky Mackay has been appointed the new manager of Wigan Athletic.The Scot, who has been out of work since being axed by Cardiff last December, succeeds Uwe Rosler at the helm of the Championship club.He takes over a Latics side sitting third from bottom in the Championship having won only three of their 17 games this season.“He is the man to lead us back into the Premier League, I am convinced of that having met him and discussed the demands of the job ahead of him,” said Wigan chairman Dave Whelan.“He has led a team out of the Championship before and he knows this league inside out having played and managed in it.“His achievements at Cardiff City were magnificent and we need a strong leader who will command the respect of a very experienced and talented dressing room – and he is the man to do it.“I am delighted we have secured the services of someone who has so much to give to the game.”Whelan had been urged by Wigan MP Lisa Nandy not to consider Mackay for the position following the recent controversy surrounding the former Cardiff boss.In August, Mackay was reported to have exchanged offensive text messages with Iain Moody, the Welsh club’s former sporting director, during his time in charge of the Bluebirds.He was forced to pull out of the running to become Crystal Palace manager in the summer as a result of the revelations and later issued an apology, admitting the messages had been “disrespectful of other cultures.”But Whelan insists he had no hesitation in appointing the 42-year-old, who had been backed for the job by Latics skipper Gary Caldwell earlier on Wednesday.“I know that this appointment will draw criticism in some quarters but we go into it with our eyes open and we have nothing to hide on this subject,” said Whelan.“Malky made a mistake, he knows that, we know that and we have discussed this issue at length face to face. He apologised publicly for what happened at the time and has paid for what he did in terms of the bad publicity he has received since and will no doubt continue to suffer in the future.“But I believe that it is now time to move on. Contrary to the way he has been portrayed in recent months, the Malky Mackay I met this week, and who has been vouched for by the many different people from whom we have sought advice before making this appointment, is an honourable man.“He is a committed family man with decent values and is a professional who has worked and thrived for over 20 years in the multi-cultural world of modern football. There is nothing more to say about this subject, and as far as I am concerned we draw a line under it from today.“
However, the spectre of a free-scoring Salzburg, led by the Champions League’s top scorer in Erlin Braut Haaland spells trouble for an injury-hit Liverpool backline that has consistently leaked goals this season despite streaking clear at the top of the Premier League.The Reds’ recorded a first clean sheet in 14 games in Saturday’s 3-0 win at Bournemouth, but lost another centre-back as Dejan Lovren limped off in the first half.Should the Croatian miss the trip to Austria, Joe Gomez will be Klopp’s only fit partner for Virgil van Dijk in central defence.Van Dijk narrowly missed out to Lionel Missi in the battle for the Ballon d’Or last week in recognition of the transformative effect he has had on Liverpool’s fortunes over the past two years.But even the towering Dutchman has been incapable of stopping the steady flow of goals against in recent months.Injuries have meant there has been a constant rotation of Lovren, Gomez and Joel Matip alongside Van Dijk, while the attacking impetus offered by full-backs Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold leaves space in behind to be exploited.Goalkeeper Alisson Becker also missed the first two months of the season due to a calf injury to further unsettle the backline.The Brazilian is now back, but another injury to Fabinho has robbed the back four of the best player to protect them in the holding midfield role.– Topsy-turvy first meeting –“I forgot how it feels, to be honest,” said Klopp on finally ending the long wait for a clean sheet at the weekend.“It’s great, we should have them more often. It was the most-used word in the dressing room by the boys – ‘clean sheet, clean sheet, clean sheet’.“Obviously everybody was desperate for that, now we have it so let’s have it more often.“The next game where a clean sheet would be useful is already around the corner, against Salzburg on Tuesday.”That is easier said than done as Liverpool know from their first meeting with Jesse Marsch’s men in October.The hosts seemed to be cruising to another Anfield win in the Champions League as they raced into a 3-0 lead, but Salzburg hit back to level at 3-3 before Mohamed Salah’s winner ensured Liverpool edged a seven-goal thriller.Salzburg have scored 87 goals in 24 games in all competitions this season, 28 of which have come from Norwegian wonderkid Haaland in just 21 appearances.The 19-year-old started on the bench when the sides met at Anfield due to injury, but came on to inspire the visitors’ revival in the second half and scored one of his eight Champions League goals.“He’s not the only threat from Salzburg but he’s a proper one,” said Klopp of the danger posed by Haaland ahead of the sides’ first clash.Salzburg need to win to make the last 16 on their first appearance in the group stage in 25 years.A point would be enough for Liverpool to progress, but they need to win to secure top spot in Group E ahead of Napoli.Given Liverpool’s paucity of clean sheets and Salzburg’s thirst for goals, attack would appear to be the best form of defence for the European champions.0Shares0000(Visited 28 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000One to watch: Erling Braut Haaland has scored 28 goals in 21 games for Salzburg this season © APA/AFP / STRINGERLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 9 – Liverpool travel to Salzburg on Tuesday needing to avoid defeat to the confident Austrian champions to guard against an embarrassing Champions League group stage exit for the holders.Jurgen Klopp’s men are used to getting through to the knockout stages the hard way. In each of the past two seasons they have needed home wins to secure a place in the last 16 before going on to make the final.

Anthony Appiah in action for Bonagee United FC.SOCCER: Bonagee United striker Anthony Appiah was the hero for Shane Byrne’s LYIT Men’s soccer team as he fired the Port Road campus into the All-Ireland final following an epic win over Carlow IT.Dean Larkin’s strike in the first-half gave LYIT a strong foothold in the game – and in truth they looked comfortable and perhaps should’ve scored more in the first-half, but they led 1-0 at the interval.However, a much improved Carlow side appeared in the second-half, and two quick-fire goals put them 2-1 ahead. LYIT have some excellent players in their squad, and they responded like all good teams do through goals from Cockhill Celtic defender Peter Doherty and Letterkenny star Paul McVeigh.That looked like it would be enough to secure the win for LYIT – but Carlow refused to lie down and equalized with just minutes remaining to send the game into extra-time.McVeigh again showed his quality and fired Byrne’s side ahead again to make it 4-3, but again Carlow responded and levelled to make it 4-4.Penalties looked on the cards, but Anthony Appiah showed his undoubted class to fire LYIT into the All-Ireland final. It’s also RAG week at LYIT this week, so we’re sure the happy squad enjoyed a few beers last night upon their return from Carlow.Well done lads.SOCCER: ANTHONY APPIAH FIRES LYIT INTO ALL-IRELAND FINAL IN THRILLING MATCH was last modified: February 4th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Anthony AppiahLYITPaul McVeighShane BrynesoccerSport
