Paul Reddam would appear to have only a longshot’s chance, but O’Neill, a three-time Santa Anita training king, isn’t leading the pack in quest of number four for nothing.“The most important thing is she’s doing really, really well right now,” O’Neill said of the Kentucky-bred bay, who often grabs a piece of the purse. She has a 3-5-4 record from 22 starts, with earnings of $750,090.Mopotism has not raced since Dec. 2, when she weakened to finish 13th in the Grade I Matriarch on Del Mar’s turf course, only her second start on grass, over which she has shown no affinity. She was seventh in the Grade I Gamely on turf at Santa Anita last May.But that’s old news.“Her weight is better, her energy is good and her works are good,” O’Neill said. “That’s what you’re looking for against this kind of competition. Granted, seven furlongs probably isn’t her perfect distance, but I do think it’s her preferred surface and she’s doing well.”Ditto for O’Neill’s entire operation at Santa Anita. Through 29 racing days, the 50-year-old Michigan native leads all trainers with 19 victories. He also has been a racing secretary’s dream with 110 starters, 37 more than runner-up Peter Miller.“I’m very happy and grateful to the owners and our staff,” O’Neill said. “We’re enjoying our success and hope we can keep it going.”In her last sprint and her lone start at seven furlongs, Mopotism was a creditable third to champion Unique Bella in the Grade I La Brea Stakes in December of 2017.Seems as though a victory in the Santa Monica would be appropriate for O’Neill as well, since he resides in the Los Angeles-area community for which the race is named.“I came here from Detroit and hope to stay here forever,” O’Neill said. “I love it.”The field for the Santa Monica, race nine of 10 with a 12 noon first post time: Paradise Woods, Joel Rosario, 7-2; Selcourt, Joe Talamo, 3-1; Marley’s Freedom, Drayden Van Dyke, 2-1; Dream Tree, Mike Smith, 4-1; Mopotism, Mario Gutierrez, 12-1; Escape Clause, Tyler Baze, 6-1; and Amuse, Rafael Bejarano, 12-1. AUTOMATIC PREAKNESS BERTH FOR EL CAMINO REAL DERBY WINNERFor the first time ever, the El Camino Real Derby, Golden Gate Fields’ premier race for three-year-olds, which will be run this Saturday, will provide the winner with an automatic, all expenses paid berth in the middle jewel of racing’s Triple Crown, the Grade I, $1.5 million Preakness Stakes on May 18 at Pimlico Race Course near Baltimore, MD. (In order to qualify for this paid berth, the El Camino Real Derby winner must be Triple Crown-nominated).Run annually at Golden Gate Fields since 2005, the 37th El Camino Real Derby (originally run at Bay Meadows) will again be contested at a mile and one eighth on synthetic Tapeta and in addition to a fees-paid entry to the Preakness, will also provide the winner with 10 Kentucky Derby qualifying points.“We are ecstatic to offer this intriguing incentive to run in the El Camino Real Derby to our horsemen, owners, breeders and their horses,” said David Duggan, Vice President and General Manager of Golden Gate Fields. “We have seen horses in the past go on and do big things in Triple Crown races after running in the El Camino Real Derby and are hoping to see that trend re-emerge with this new bonus in 2019.“We’ve had 27 horses run in the Kentucky Derby after competing in the El Camino Real Derby. Charismatic used the El Camino Real Derby as prep for the Kentucky Derby in 1999 and won the Preakness, too. Tabasco Cat won the El Camino Real Derby in 1994 and ended up winning both the Preakness and the Belmont, so we know it can be done.” The El Camino Real Derby is one of a dozen stakes races on the calendar for the upcoming 2018-19 Golden Gate Fields Winter/Spring Meet, which gets underway the day after Christmas, on Wednesday, Dec. 26 and runs through Sunday, June 9.Golden Gate Fields and Pimlico Racecourse are both owned by The Stronach Group, North America’s largest owner of racetracks which also include Gulfstream Park, Santa Anita and Laurel Park.LATEST CONTENT FROM XBTV:Game Winner (Outside) & Dr.Dorr working 5 furlongs (Baffert)-2/13/2019Flor de la Mar in company with Qahira working 5 furlongs (Baffert)-2/13/2019Chasing Yesterday works 6 furlongs (Baffert)-2/13/2019Brill  works 5 furlongs (Hollendorfer)-2/13/2019Eoin Harty talks  Royal Insider in Saturday’s El Camino Real at GGFDoug O’Neill Discusses  His Runners in Saturday’s El Camino Real at GGFBob Baffert Talks  Kingly in Saturday’s El Camino Real at GGFJeff Bonde Talks  King of Speed in Saturday’s El Camino Real at GGFRoyal Insider (Outside) & Union Station (Possible El Camino Real Derby)-Harty-2/10/2019Kingly (Outside) & Green Fleet (Both Triple Crown Nominated)-Baffert-2/10/2019Roadster works 5 furlongs(Triple Crown Nominated)-Baffert-2/10/2019FINISH LINES: Flavien Prat’s agent, Derek Lawson, reports that Prat will ride Jerry Hollendorfer’s two-time stakes winner Galilean in Monday’s Cal Cup Derby. “SteveHaskin said this horse can win the Kentucky Derby this morning on Steve Byk’s show (At the Races on Sirius XM Satellite Radio),” said Lawson . . .

Chelsea will let Giroud join Spurs but only if they wrap up Mertens transfer

first_imgHe currently sits agonisingly close just four short of club legend Marek Hamsik’s 122 goals.Lampard first identified Mertens as a possible addition to his squad back in early December and the Blues have been monitoring the player since.Mertens is also out of contract at Napoli at the end of this season, who have been advised to cash in on their man.2 Chelsea want to land Dries Mertens from Napoli before they agree to letting Giroud leaveCredit: Getty Images – Getty CHELSEA will allow Olivier Giroud to join Tottenham – but the transfer will only go through if the Blues land Dries Mertens today.However, SunSport understands it is very unlikely that Chelsea will be able to convince Mertens to join.2 Chelsea will allow Olivier Giroud to move to White Hart Lane if they sign Dries MertensCredit: Getty – ContributorGiroud, 33, has played just seven time for Chelsea this season with Frank Lampard preferring Michy Batshuayi as Tammy Abraham’s understudy.His only goal came in the shootout defeat to Liverpool in the Super Cup on August 14.With his lack of game time and contract up in the summer, Giroud was expected to leave Stamford Bridge this month as he tries to secure his place in the France squad for Euro 2020.Reports claim he is prepared to skip training to force through a move today, with Lazio close to sealing a deal.Inter Milan were keen but their interest cooled, while Aston Villa, Newcastle, Juventus, Atletico Madrid, Crystal Palace and Lyon have all been linked this month.But it is Tottenham that are now closest to landing the striker on Deadline Day.The North London club knew that was a priority with Harry Kane recovering from hamstring surgery.As revealed by SunSport, Daniel Levy is willing to spend just £10million on a new striker – infuriating other clubs by not getting anywhere near their asking fees.However, the deal is still reliant on Mertens heading to Stamford Bridge as Giroud’s replacement.The Belgian, 32, maintains he has a personal ambition to achieve first by becoming Napoli’s record goalscorer before he leaves.Latest Chelsea newsLive Blogblues newsChelsea news LIVE – Latest updates from Stamford BridgeGossipGOING DUTCHChelsea ‘to grab Mbuyamba on free deal’ with defender set to leave BarcelonaCOURT ORDERKante ‘ordered to appear in court’ in £3.4m legal battle with former agentBRIDGE OF SIGHSChelsea stars ‘bored’ and Hazard suffered under Sarri, says ex-No2 ZolaGossipBERN IT UPMan Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea on alert after Bernardeschi reveals Prem plansLive BlogBLUES NEWSChelsea news LIVE: Latest updates and transfer gossip from Stamford BridgeGossipSAMU’LL DOChelsea turn attention to Villarreal’s Chukwueze as United edge closer to SanchoJESUS HEISTChelsea talks with Jesus Corona confirmed as agent reveals ace open to transferlast_img read more

first_imgThe wing sustained an injury to his right ankle in Sarries’ loss to Wasps earlier this month and had surgery this week. He is expected to be out of action for 12 weeks.Maitland has scored eight tries during his first season with the club after his move from London Irish and will be unavailable for the Premiership semi-final at Exeter Chiefs this Saturday.The 28-year-old will also miss the decider on May 27, should the holders, who have retained their European Champions Cup crown, reach the domestic showpiece at Twickenham.Scotland coach Gregor Townsend has called up wing Rory Hughes and full-back Greig Tonks to replace Maitland for the matches against Italy in Singapore, Australia in Sydney and Fiji in Suva next month.BREAKING | Head Coach Gregor Townsend adds Rory Hughes & Greig Tonks to Scotland summer tour squad after Maitland ruled out through injury. pic.twitter.com/caWZSIGNxj— Scottish Rugby (@Scotlandteam) May 18, 2017last_img read more

Billy Slater goes out with a win

first_imgQueensland provided one final highlight for stand-in skipper Slater, downing NSW 18-12 in State of Origin III in Brisbane in a fitting farewell for the veteran fullback.Polarising Maroons playmaker Daly Cherry-Evans was a standout after ending three years in the Origin wilderness.After his 31st and final Origin, Slater said it was vital for the Maroons’ future that he helped deny the Blues their first series whitewash in 18 years.The dead rubber win ensured Queensland savoured victory for the first time as they began life without their Big Three – Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk and Johnathan Thurston.”I was disappointed the fellas hadn’t had that Origin winning feeling,” Slater said.”I really wanted to deliver that to them because it is important. There were a few guys who hadn’t felt it this year.”They (NSW) earnt their series win this year, we need to learn from that but we needed that win – there is a bright future.”Next year the Maroons will be without the Big Four after Slater bowed out in style.He not only earned man of the match honours but was also controversially awarded the Wally Lewis Medal as player of the series despite missing the Melbourne opener with injury.Slater was Queensland captain for the first time in his final game after stepping in for Greg Inglis (broken thumb).Slater’s representative retirement ensures Inglis will be the last man standing from Queensland’s 2006 side which sparked their stunning run of 11 series wins in the last 12 years.But Slater walks away with no regrets, all but anointing Newcastle’s Kalyn Ponga as his fullback replacement.”Queensland is in a really good position. We have a great squad,” Slater said.”Look at Kayln Ponga and what he did in game two – we are in good hands.”Queensland coach Kevin Walters may have suffered his first series defeat in his third year at the helm but he is relieved to send Slater out a winner.”That was important for us as a team to get something out of the series and secondly to send Billy Slater out of this arena a winner,” Walters said.”It really does set us up for the next two or three years.”Walters’ luck this year only seemed to get worse after Smith announced his shock representative retirement weeks before the series.But Walters now holds no fears for the future thanks to the legacy left by the likes of Slater.”All those great players of the last 12 years have left a great footprint on what to do at this level to be successful,” he said.”We have to learn from that but I think our guys in the shed learnt a lot about Origin just by getting that win.”last_img read more

Johnson looking for a new home

first_imgLast month it was revealed the Warriors told their star player he could test his value on the free market, indicating they weren’t willing to re-sign him.Johnson took to social media Monday afternoon to “clear up” his situation.He said at this stage there’s no contract for him to sign beyond 2019 and that he’s already approached some rugby league clubs in Australia to pique their interest.The Canberra Raiders had been touted as a potential home for Johnson if he was to leave the Warriors, however the club said earlier this month that its not formally considering him as an option.Johnson signed a two year deal with the Warriors last year believed to be worth seven figures a season.The 28-year-old has played 162 NRL games since making his debut in 2011 and has been the face of the club for the past five years.In 2014 Johnson was named the world’s best player following New Zealand’s successful Four Nations campaign.last_img read more

Hunter Stargroth’s dream becomes reality

first_imgPNG Kumuls winger Stargroth Amean is about to achieve a life dream, one he once thought may never happen due to serious injuries.A product of rugby league-mad nation Papua New Guinea – the only country on earth to call rugby league its national sport – Amean has held two lifelong goals. One is to become a doctor. The other is to represent his country in rugby league.This Saturday, one of those dreams comes true, and you’d be a fool to think the University of Papua New Guinea science student won’t make the other a reality.Despite being arguably the most excellently-named man ever to lace on a boot, Amean is many other things.He is a triumph of determination; a heart-warming example of persistence and hard work paying off; he is a science student and future medical student. He has shaken off serious injuries that threatened his playing career.He is also named after an obscure Spanish actor, in case you were wondering.Speaking to NRL.com days before his long-awaited and much-desired Test debut, the 25-year-old fullback or winger spoke frankly of the injuries that put him out of the game for a year and took an emotional toll, as well as of his pride in having achieved one of his life’s goals.”I’ve been chasing this jersey for five years now, to play for PNG,” Amean said, standing on the Pirtek Stadium turf for the captains’ and coaches’ call ahead of this weekend’s Pacific double header at the venue.”It’s an honour to represent my family and my countrymen back in PNG. It’s a big privilege for me. They really love it there, it’s the national sport in PNG so to represent my country is a big deal.”Amean – who played for the PNG Hunters in Queensland’s Intrust Super Cup last season – said Hunters players are recognised in their homeland the same way NRL stars are here, with the kids who follow the game knowing all the players by name.”We’re well known back in PNG, all the boys, all the kids growing up, they know all the boys. Individually, the names and everything, just like the NRL boys here, back in PNG is the same with Hunters,” he said.He spoke of his struggle to come back from two serious ankle injuries through several changes of scenery over the past five years.”I’d been playing for the local comp back in PNG, the Digicel Cup. I made my debut with Hela Wigmen and then in 2012 I went to join the Port Moresby Vipers and then I dislocated both my ankles.”And that puts a hell of a full stop on a rugby league career. Those injuries happened a season apart and would present a huge hurdle for any young man to return from.”I dislocated my right ankle in 2011 so when I was running in 2012 I was putting all the weight on my left leg. Then when I dislocated my left ankle I couldn’t use both my legs, so I stayed out of the game in 2013 and concentrated on my recovery,” he said.”In 2013 I was out. I couldn’t run, or even walk a long distance.”It was a challenging time and Amean said he turned to his faith for help in healing both physically and mentally.”I went to see the physios but they couldn’t help me out; I couldn’t walk. So I went to this pastor who prayed for me and it got better.”In 2014 and I came back and played for the Vipers and then in 2015 I made my debut for the Hunters. Then this year, I came back, played for the Hunters and now I’m here with the Kumuls.”Amean admits it was “a really tough time emotionally”.”Watching small kids play touch rugby, I really envied them, seeing them running around. My mind told me to run but my feet couldn’t do it. I was really isolated. It was like being paralysed. I couldn’t run. I couldn’t even walk.”One small advantage of such a tough period was being able to focus more on his studies, which have taken a back seat over the past two seasons as his footy career has been resurrected.”Last year and this year with the Hunters I haven’t concentrated on school a lot, I’ve concentrated on the game so I’m thinking of going back next year for the following year to complete my schooling. I’m thinking of picking up medicine. I’ve got one year in science before I stream to medicine,” he said.”Growing up, I had a couple of goals in life and this is one of them – representing my country. The other one is doing medicine. Now I’m achieving one of them I look forward to the next one.”I want to achieve everything that I can in this lifetime.”And we couldn’t finish up without asking him how he came to have such a memorable name.”Stargroth?” he laughed.”When my mum was young, during her teenage years she used to admire a Spanish actor whose name was Stargroth. She said when she has her first born baby boy she would call him Stargroth so that’s how I got it.”NRL.com has scoured the internet with little success for evidence of this actor but it’s probably fitting that the man simply called “Star” by his teammates is the only Stargroth anyone in this neck of the woods has ever heard of. You’ll be hearing a bit more of him no doubt.last_img read more

Madrid signs Hugo Vallejo

first_imgHugo Vallejo will arrive in Riazor after having played only 285 minutes in Second this season, since his refusal to renew for Málaga caused his exclub to relegate him to ostracism from the past September 17, date in which he played his last match with Málaga’s first team, before the Lightning. The end debuted with the first team of Malaga on January 6, 2019. It was in the defeat against Reus by 0-3.The end will land in A Coruña in full positive streak of Depor results, since the Blue and Whites have won their last four games and are only one point away from the salvation zone. Hugo Vallejo (19 years old) is already a Madrid player. As I had already advanced As, the white club and Malaga have reached an agreement for the transfer of the end, which ended contract on June 30 and signed until 2023. He will play on loan at Depor for the remainder of the season.Hugo Vallejo had rejected all the offers of Malaga to renew, so the malacitanos leaders have preferred to accept Madrid’s proposal to sell it in this winter market. But the destiny of the extreme will not be put under Zidane’s orders or play in Castilla, but will be transferred to Deportivo until the end of the course. In this way, it will become the fifth reinforcement of the Galician team this winter. President Blanzquiazul, Fernando Vidal, announced that the intention is to make 8 or 9 signings, so after the arrival of Hugo Vallejo, the Depor still plans to make four or five more reinforcements.last_img read more
