ZUMA BEACH STAKES QUOTES – MONDAY, OCT. 10, 2016

first_img            TIM YAKTEEN, BIG SCORE, WINNER: “I think he can handle more distance. I definitely don’t think distance will be any concern. I think he showed that he’s not one dimensional today. He doesn’t have to come from completely out of it.“The pace was substantially faster today, the first part of the race, and Flavien kept him a little closer but it didn’t seem to compromise his kick. He still had a pretty good kick.“I would love to participate in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf.” JOCKEY QUOTES            FLAVIEN PRAT, BIG SCORE, WINNER: “Since he won the first time out, I’ve thought he was a good horse. Last time, I guess I was a little too far behind the rest of the field and had to wait a little bit to get through. The winner that day (Bowies Hero) is a good horse. My horse was running at the end, but I just couldn’t catch him.“Today I took my time and put him right there, even though the pace was pretty fast. I wanted him right there and he always shows a good turn of foot.“The Breeders’ Cup is what we’re looking for.” TRAINER QUOTES GEORGE KRIKORIAN, OWNER/BREEDER, BIG SCORE:  “The way he’s been running, we thought he’d run well today.  We’ll definitely point him now to the million dollar race (Grade I, Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf at Santa Anita Nov. 4).  These horses by Mr. Big are showing a lot of promise.  I moved him to E.A. Ranches in Ramona for this year and he was bred to 39 mares.  If he keeps going the way he is, he could be the best son of Dynaformer (deceased) at stud.”             NOTES: The winning owner is George Krikorian of Torrance, CA.last_img read more

BI on alert for illegally deployed OFWs to Iraq Embiid had 25 points and 16 rebounds, JJ Redick scored 24 points, and the Philadelphia 76ers snapped a five-game losing streak with a 105-98 victory over the New York Knicks on Monday (Tuesday Manila time).“Especially after what we’ve been through the past four years, I was so excited to play tonight because we’ve been through so much losing,” Embiid said. “And to be able to be one of the few teams in our league that can play on this day, it just shows you how much we’ve improved.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderNeither Embiid nor Redick was cleared to play until going through pregame warmups, and their presence gave the 76ers just enough to win their first Christmas Day appearance since 2001.Embiid, who has been battling a bad back, powered through a big-man duel with Enes Kanter, who had a season-high 31 points and tied a career best with 22 rebounds. He joined Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell and Bob Lanier as the only players with a 30-20 game on Christmas, according to research provided to the Knicks by Elias. Do not bring these items in SEA Games venues “I respect the guy a lot because that guy didn’t play three, four years and coming back (at the) level he’s playing right now,” Kanter said of Embiid. “So it’s cool to play against, go against a guy like that.”Redick, who missed the last game with right hamstring tightness, helped the 76ers pull away from an 89-all tie midway through the fourth quarter. He’s played in Christmas games before — and made clear again he’s not a fan of them — and he thought his young teammates responded well to their first opportunity.“There’s a tendency to try to put on a show instead of just going out and competing, and I think we did a great job of just going out and competing,” Redick said.Kristaps Porzingis scored 22 points for the Knicks, who fell to 22-30 on Christmas with their fifth straight loss on the holiday.Backup point guard T.J. McConnell had Philadelphia’s final eight points of the third quarter, and the 76ers pushed the lead to nine with about 9 minutes left in the game. The Knicks battled back to tied it 89 on Porzingis’ three-point play with 5:20 left, but Philadelphia promptly scored the next seven to go up 96-89 on Redick’s 3-pointer with 3:34 to play.ADVERTISEMENT Philadelphia’s young stars kept the Knicks from getting much closer, with Embiid making a 3-pointer and Ben Simmons stealing Porzingis’ pass and dunking it, both times hiking the lead back to eight.TIP-INS76ers: Coach Brett Brown called Embiid a “borrowed stud” who they get to “inherit” when he is able to play. “He doesn’t practice and he comes in and plays games and we’re trying to grow him into a situation where he is a normal part of a team,” Brown said. … The Sixers franchise is 17-13 on Christmas.Knicks: Hall of Famer Bernard King, who set the Christmas record when he scored 60 points for the Knicks against the Nets in 1984, was at the game. … New York had won seven straight at home over Philadelphia.FULTZ UPDATENo. 1 pick Markelle Fultz, who has missed two months with right shoulder soreness, is on the trip with the 76ers. Brown said the purpose of having the guard from Washington with the team was “to make sure that he understands completely he is a significant part of our future and that we are with him unconditionally.”“We will help move him forward in a timeline that’s responsible and I just like having him with his extended family, his teammates, with me, with us,” Brown added. “Those types of things.”WHAT COULD’VE BEENPorzingis could’ve been playing for the 76ers instead of against them. The Knicks took him with the No. 4 pick in 2015, one spot after Philadelphia went with Jahlil Okafor, who eventually fell out of the rotation entirely and was dealt earlier this month to Brooklyn. But Brown declined to look back, saying “next question” when asked if he ever wondered “what if?” when it came to Porzingis.

Holm aiming for upset of Justino, 2nd title belt at UFC 219

first_imgJust over two years after Holm (11-3) won the UFC bantamweight title with a jaw-dropping stoppage of Ronda Rousey, Holm is a big underdog when she steps into the T-Mobile Arena cage in Las Vegas to take her shot at Justino (18-1) for the featherweight belt.Justino seems unbeatable. The Brazilian hasn’t lost since her MMA debut in 2005, and she has honed a physical, pounding style that no fighters have solved — or even survived to the bell in any fight since 2008.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderBut Rousey seemed equally unbeatable when she entered the cage with Holm in Australia — and the whole world saw what happened when Holm kicked Rousey in the head.“I think there are similarities with the feeling of it,” said Holm, who also had her share of impressive wins as a professional boxer before entering MMA. “I think that because I’ve done it more than once now, in boxing and (more prominently) with Ronda, to be the underdog and come in, I think that people think, ‘Oh, OK, well, Holly is capable of doing some things.’ But I feel like there’s more of a curiosity behind it. Not necessarily just thinking I can’t do it, but kind of, ‘Hmm, I wonder if she’s going to do it this time.’” Read Next Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH The UFC is hoping that plenty of people are wondering what will happen when the promotion wraps up an eventful 2017 with its traditional end-of-the-year show in its hometown.The UFC 219 card also includes the long-awaited return of lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov (24-0), who hasn’t fought all year and has been in the cage only three times since April 2014. The Dagestan-born Russian, who missed weight for a much-anticipated bout with new lightweight champion Tony Ferguson in March, will take on Brazil’s Edson Barboza.The pay-per-view portion of the card begins with the return of popular welterweight Carlos Condit, who will take on durable veteran Neil Magny.Justino has won eight straight fights by stoppage, most in brutal fashion. Only her use of performance-enhancing drugs has slowed Justino’s dominance of her division and the women’s sport in general, particularly since she finally joined the UFC last year.“I think Holly is a great fighter for me, because she’s a big name, too,” Justino said. “She has a lot of fights, a lot of experience. I think it would be a great fight.”ADVERTISEMENT While Justino would be the favorite in any bout, Holm is intriguing because of her highs and her lows.She stopped Rousey with that vicious head kick and earned instant fame beyond her sport, but then she followed up with three consecutive defeats, including a lackluster decision loss to Germaine de Randamie in February for the inaugural women’s UFC featherweight title.When de Randamie gave up the belt rather than fight Justino in her first defense, Justino claimed the strap with a win over Tonya Evinger in July. Holm ended her skid with a stoppage of Bethe Correia in June and then booked her second shot at the featherweight title.While Holm could make MMA history with a win over Justino to claim a belt in her second weight class, this fight also presents a chance for Justino to beat the most famous female fighter aside from Rousey, whose career appears to be over one year after her comeback loss to Amanda Nunes.Holm and Justino are both accomplished strikers with polished punching skills, so it won’t be a surprise if this bout is contested on the feet. Holm’s style appears to give her a chance against Justino, who hasn’t faced many strikers with Holm’s ability.And while Holm is the underdog, she is determined to enjoy her chance to become a two-belt champion.“It’s not just any fight card in Vegas,” Holm said. “It’s the last fight card of the year, and it’s a busy time in Vegas. I feel like there’s going to be a lot of energy, and my whole thought is just to take all that energy in and just live in it and be in the moment.” /cbb Holly Holm of the United States reacts after knocking out Bethe Correia of Brazil during their UFC women’s bantamweight event at the UFC Fight Night in Singapore on June 17, 2017.
