Art Wilson: Triple Crown hopes derailed

first_imgOTHER than watching your horse go down with a life-ending injury, there is probably no greater disappointment for a thoroughbred owner than seeing a promising Kentucky Derby colt knocked off the Triple Crown trail. Lee and Susan Searing, who own CRK Stables, have had it happen twice now; last year with Cindago and just this week with Exhale, who was to undergo surgery Thursday for a chip and a flake in his knees that will keep him sidelined until late summer or the fall. “It’s a huge disappointment,” Searing said. “After 40 years of racing horses, we’ve put quite a bit of money and invested quite a bit of our time in buying these 2-year-olds. “It bothered him in his last workout last weekend. We knew they were there and we decided that if they bothered him, we weren’t going to push it and we’re not pushing it.” Exhale, a son of Millennium Wind, finished second to the promising Notional in his career debut in October at Oak Tree after breaking slowly and then won a maiden special weight by five lengths on Jan. 15 at Santa Anita. Trainer John Sadler had Exhale, the seventh-ranked colt in the Daily Racing Form’s Derby Watch, pointed toward the Grade II Robert Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita on March 3, but the colt’s next race now, at the earliest, will come at Del Mar. “It’s a very small injury and you have to make a decision – push on, or make sure you don’t hurt the horse,” said the 58-year-old Searing, who resides in Arcadia and, along with his younger brother, owns a steel tubing business in Rancho Cucamonga. “And that’s the decision; we’re gonna make sure we don’t hurt the horse. “There are certain trainers who do it one way and there are certain trainers who do it the other way and, as an owner, you better be ready to buy into it.” Searing, who has 12 horses in training with Sadler, has been with the veteran horseman for the past nine years and says the two enjoy a good relationship. center_img “One, he’s honest,” Searing said of Sadler. “Two, he works hard. And three, when it comes to style, I think John Sadler is at that barn every day. John feels every horse’s leg and he knows everything about those horses. “Him and I have a similar understanding on what to do, when these horses should run and what we’re trying to do with them. We get along. There’s no conflict of me trying to think that something’s too good or not good enough. We very easily agree on things.” The Searings also own the talented filly Jump On In, who won the Grade II Santa Ynez Stakes at seven furlongs on Jan. 15 and, after a disappointing last-place finish in the 11/16-mile Grade I Las Virgenes Stakes on Feb. 10, will be returned to a sprint. “She may not be able to go a distance of ground, but she’s a wonderful horse and she can run,” Searing said of the 3-year-old Jump Start filly. Another Searing colt, Swift Demand, broke his maiden at first asking on Feb. 15 when he overcame a terrible start to make up 20 to 25 lengths and win the 61/2-furlong race by a head at 10-1 with Garrett Gomez up. “I’m not so sure that his next race won’t be in a stakes,” Searing said. “He’s a wonderful horse that I bought at the Barretts Yearling Sale. John picked him out. “We didn’t nominate him to the Triple Crown, but we may supplement him.” Jon Court, 46, is the 2007 winner of the George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award and will be honored at Santa Anita on March 25. “It’s an incredibly high honor,” “It’s also very humbling to know that it was the riders nationwide who voted for me.” said Court, a Florida native, has been riding for 27 years and has won more than 3,000 races. Noble Threewitt, who turns 96 on Saturday, will officially retire from training that day following a career that spanned eight decades. Threewitt, who was on hand when Santa Anita opened on Christmas Day 1934, will be honored after the fifth race and will be joined by his wife of 73 years, Beryl. art.wilson@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2103 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

If Arsenal want a good season then they must sign BOTH of these targets

first_imgArsenal fan Jamie Sanderson explains to talkSPORT that his club can still have a good season as long as the manager brings in quality in January.You can’t argue that Arsenal need a quality defensive midfielder in January, and it seems Arsene Wenger agrees, with both Sami Khedira and William Carvalho being scouted.The duo both bring different qualities and it seems most fans have a clear favourite on who they want to bring in when the window opens.But if Arsenal are serious about having a good season, we need to sign BOTH players. Forget either or, there’s space for two bodies.Khedira would be on huge wages and would probably be the regular starter, offering passing, energy and box-to-box strength.And we should also get Carvalho as well, a huge unit who can sit in front of the back for. Plus he can offer cover at centre-back.Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta don’t have futures at Arsenal and signing both Khedira and Carvalho would replace both of them with quality, consistency and real talent.Let’s get the deals agreed now so they’re ready to arrive in the New Year – and we can still enjoy a superb campaign. 1 Sami Khedira and William Carvalho last_img read more

Alisson was not Liverpool’s first-choice target as interest revealed

first_img moving on TOP WORK Latest transfer news But, if Liverpool had got their way, Alisson would not have been turning out at Anfield this summer – as they, in fact, wanted to sign a different goalkeeper.According to Spanish media outlet AS, as quoted by Sport Witness, Jurgen Klopp’s first-choice target to replace Loris Karius as Liverpool’s goalkeeper was Jan Oblak, of Atletico Madrid, not Alisson. Liverpool made Alisson the most expensive goalkeeper in the history of world football earlier this year, bringing in the Brazil international from Roma for around £67million.His record was quickly surpassed by Chelsea’s signing of Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Club, but it is fair to say Alisson has started the season better than the Blues glovesman having kept clean sheets in all three Premier League matches so far. The Reds were reported to be interested in Oblak during the summer, with Chelsea also keeping tabs on the Slovenia international when it became clear Thibaut Courtois would be leaving Stamford Bridge.It is Liverpool who are named in the report as being the club ‘most interested’ in securing Oblak’s services over the summer, though they eventually moved for Alisson, who was bought for £67million – over £20million cheaper than Oblak’s release clause. 2 three-way race targets Alisson has caught the eye with some impressive performances in the early stage of the season Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January Oblak has long been regarded one of Europe’s finest goalkeepers Liverpool’s signings under Michael Edwards – will Minamino be the next big hit? LIVING THE DREAM IN DEMAND Oblak has held talks with Atletico to extend his current deal, which expires in 2021, and it is expected his release clause will further increase when putting pen to paper on new terms.

Tony Cascarino ‘hates’ Neymar and says he’s the most disliked player in the world

first_imgReds manager Jurgen Klopp hit out at the Brazilian and the PSG team over their ‘unsportsmanlike’ conduct during the game, as they succeeded with their plan to wind up Liverpool players by constantly playing for fouls.And, asked for his view on Thursday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Cascarino claimed Neymar is the most disliked player in world football.“PSG are very good at deception, and certainly Neymar,” the former Chelsea and Republic of Ireland star said.“Whether you want to associate that with cheating or not, they do it brilliantly.“Do I hate it? Yes. Tony Cascarino has told talkSPORT he ‘hates’ the way Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar acts on the pitch despite his unquestionable quality as a player.The former Chelsea striker says the Brazilian is more talented than legends Rivaldo and Ronaldinho, but lets himself down with his constant theatrics.Neymar is one of the world’s most recognised footballers, and yet is loathed by a large proportion of supporters.He won over few fans with his conduct at the World Cup, where he made more headlines for his bad behaviour than for his brilliance with the ball.And he did his reputation no favours in PSG’s Champions League clash against Liverpool on Wednesday, but that will matter little to him after he helped the French champions claim a 2-1 win. getty 3 The Brazilian was constantly going to ground against Liverpool, but never appeared hurt for long 3 Neymar was widely slammed for his behaviour at the World Cup “Do I hate Neymar at times? Yes, he drives me absolutely crazy, but boy what a player there is in there as well.“If you had a poll for the most disliked player in the world, he would win it hands down.“But also I think we forget that lad is so talented, that’s why it’s so disappointing. 3 Neymar scored the match-winning goal for PSG against Liverpool “I’ve seen Rivaldo and Ronaldinho play and they are two fantastic players, but Neymar has got more than them.“And they would cheat, but not as much as this one, and that’s a bad reflection of football.”Listen back to Tony Cascarino on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL above!last_img read more

DREAMING OF A NEW CAR? LETTERKENNY CREDIT UNION LAUNCH NEW YEAR CAR LOAN CAMPAIGN

first_imgLetterkenny Credit UnionLetterkenny Credit Union have today launched their 2015 New Year car loan campaign. In the current climate, it can be difficult to get credit for the things in life we need – that is why the credit union is on hand to help.A car loan from your local credit union is straight-forward. You borrow the money from the credit union, you pay for the car and you own the car immediately.You agree a repayment schedule with the credit union.Interest is charged on the reducing balance of the loan.Unlike many car finance deals available today, which are actually Hire Purchase Agreements, arranging your car loan through your Letterkenny Credit Union means that you own the car from the outset. You do not own the car through a Hire Purchase Agreement until the last instalment.Nor are there any balloon payments, admin charges or hidden fees.A car loan with your Credit Union is just that – a loan, no gimmicks.Should you be in the happy position of being able to repay the loan early, you may do so without any penalty charges.Commenting on the launch of the car loan campaign Gordon Randles, Manager, Letterkenny Credit Union told Donegal Daily, “People in the Letterkenny area are still buying cars but are shopping around for better value in the car financing deal. “Letterkenny Credit Union are lending to their members and we would encourage anyone who is considering buying a new or used car in 2015 to visit their local credit union to discuss what options are available to them.“Having arranged finance with the credit union in advance of going shopping for a car puts you in a stronger position.“It helps to know exactly how much you have to spend and because you are not going cap-in-hand to the dealer, you are effectively a cash buyer and you may be able to negotiate a better deal.WHAT MAKES A CAR LOAN DIFFERENT AT YOUR CREDIT UNION • Unlike a Hire Purchase Agreement you own the car from the outset.• There are no hidden fees or transaction charges.• Credit union interest rates are fair and reasonable and capped by law.Repayments are calculated on your reducing balance, so you pay less interest with each repayment.• Your credit union loan is insured in the event of your death – subject to terms and conditions – at no direct cost to you. Other lenders charge for this.• You can pay off your loan early, make additional lump sum repayments or increase your regular repayments, without a penalty. Other lenders may charge you extra for paying them back faster!DREAMING OF A NEW CAR?
