Juvenile – Post-Race Interview Transcript – Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016

first_imgJohn OxleyMark CasseJulien LeparouxPress ConferenceTHE MODERATOR: Ladies and gentlemen, the winner of the Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile was Classic Empire, and we’ll be joined shortly by John Oxley and Julien Leparoux, but right now we’ve got winning trainer Mark Casse who is short on time because he has another nice horse coming up shortly on the card. Mark, congratulations, thanks for joining us here. You have not been shy about your confidence in Classic Empire in the last few weeks. Just tell us about that confidence that you’ve had and what you saw today in this race?MARK CASSE: Well, you know what? Couple things amaze me about this horse was when he won the Bashford Manor at Churchill in June, I guess, I’ve been training for 37 years, I thought it was the most impressive 2-year-old winner that I’d ever trained. I went into the Hopeful after Pretty City Dancer won the Spinaway, and these two had trained together. I knew that he was superior to her. And I’m normally not a cocky guy, and this stopped me again for a couple years, but I said to a few people that day, we’re going to win the Hopeful today, it’s just a matter of how far.Then of course he put me back into reality and put me — so I’m not going to say that again for a few more years. But what amazes me is this horse’s ability to have such a high cruising speed. They were flying along, and Julien said Syndergaard, Todd’s horse, is a fast horse, and he said Johnny was letting his horse run and he was just looking at him like, okay, when we going to go? So I don’t know. All week long Dale Romans has said we were going to run 1, 2, him and I, and I said, okay, I’m just glad I was 1.THE MODERATOR: Mr. Oxley, congratulations to you. Can we just get your feelings in the aftermath of a Breeders’ Cup Juvenile win?JOHN OXLEY: This is unbelievable. It’s what we’ve been hoping for for many years now, a horse that might replace Monarchos, whom we just lost. This horse is exceptional. I love him, but even more importantly, the jockey, Julien Leparoux, what a ride. Fantastic. Just perfect. It was flawless, and the team behind him, Mark Casse, Norman Casse, the entire organization works for each other. Also, to my sweet wife, Debbie, she brings luck to the team.Q. This horse obviously had some issues breaking from the gate in several consecutive starts. Could you talk about what you did to correct that? Obviously it was a very, very top training job there.MARK CASSE: You know, and maybe that’s another thing that makes this so special. He hasn’t necessarily been easy. He’s an extremely, extremely smart horse, and he tends to see things that maybe others don’t, and you never know what he’s going to kind of do. But we added blinkers. We had actually wanted — we thought after his first two performances where he ran really great, it would have been nice to put some blinkers on him. But normally they don’t allow you to put blinkers on horses that are winning. So after the Hopeful, Norman and I were watching him cool out, and we looked at each other and said I think we can put blinkers on him now.Julien was still out, and he was just coming back off his wrist injury, and that evening I called him and I said, Julien, I have a horse I want you to work out of the gate tomorrow, do you think you can come? And he said, oh, sure. It was a joke.Julien’s been a big, big part of this horse’s training as well.THE MODERATOR: Julien, you’ve been aboard for all of Classic Empire’s wins, not the day that we’re talking about where there were the antics out of the gate, but just talk about this effort today and how professional he was relative to some of what we’ve seen on tape before?JULIEN LEPAROUX: Well, I think you can see there is a big, big difference since the blinkers are on. He’s way more focused. The first two starts he was not breaking sharp from the gate. Since we put blinkers, I mean, he’s been pretty mean to race from the beginning. It’s a big change, and he’s a very, very nice horse. We go fast, but you don’t feel like you go fast on him, so looking forward for next year for sure.Q. Tell us more about this trip today?JULIEN LEPAROUX: Oh, we had a perfect trip. I wanted to break good, which we did. And after that, just sit there and tried to get going early. That’s it.MARK CASSE: I kind of have to watch the break like this. But I just wanted to tell you, I’m voting for him as champion 2-year-old, if anybody’s wondering. Of course I don’t get a vote.JOHN OXLEY: Hey, I’ll vote for that.JULIEN LEPAROUX: Me too.MARK CASSE: There we go.THE MODERATOR: When we get to this point with an impressive juvenile winner, we have to ask about the spring and the potential for the Classics. Your thoughts on a path to get there and what you’re thinking now? It’s a little early, but we’re dying to know.MARK CASSE: I’m just thinking I’m happy the day’s over with. It went well. That’s something that Mr. Oxley and I will talk about. We are a team. He has thoughts, I have thoughts. We’ll talk about it, and we’ll come up with a game plan. Obviously our goal is the first Saturday in May.Q. This team we’ve seen many times before with wonderful colts. And I wonder if you’d take us through how you first found this colt?MARK CASSE: Well, we bought him as a yearling. I think Mr. Oxley had said to me — he always likes to buy nice colts. Well, I think this year we were buying — no, we bought a few fillies. Then we go through and we give him kind of a list, and he goes around with us and he said, oh, I love this one. He wasn’t cheap. But he was well worth it.Q. I can tell you’re confident and how much you love the horse. Watching that wonderful stretch duel and knowing that you and Dale were talking it’s going to be one of you, did you feel I’ve got this? Could you take us through what’s going through your head watching that? Thank you again, and congratulations.MARK CASSE: Well, I thought at the top of the lane I was a little worried because he’d never really opened up before too much, so I’m like, well, maybe. I don’t know how much I want him to open up. Then I thought, well, he’s going to win by a couple lengths, and then towards about 16th pole I may have said a bad word because I could see that horse coming. You know, we had run second with Valadorna in the Filly race, and she just couldn’t get up. I’m like, oh, now it’s the opposite way. But I’m just proud of how both of them ran today. More importantly, he says he just comes along for the ride. But he fuels the ride. So he’s not — not only is he a great owner, but both him and Debbie are great friends of ours.Q. Julien, on paper there was a lot of speed, early speed signed up in this race. Were you surprised, and were you trying to break that alertly and that quickly given the fact that it looked like there was so much speed? And he has shown the ability to race.JULIEN LEPAROUX: No, not really. I didn’t expect to be where I was, to be honest. No, no, my goal was inside of me and outside of me was a lot of speed, so I had to break at least good and ask him away from them. I really thought they were actually going to clear me and maybe sit third or fourth, but in the first turn I was very, very happy how I was, that’s for sure, yeah.Q. Were you surprised that there was only Syndergaard up front?JULIEN LEPAROUX: Yes, but like Classic Empire, when he breaks, he’s got speed, too, so I knew he was going to put me in the race. I was a little surprised the other one didn’t ask a little bit more to get there. So, like I said, in the first turn I was very happy that I was by myself pretty good being second.MARK CASSE: They were skipping along pretty good.JULIEN LEPAROUX: Yeah.Q. The horse on paper looked like he was going to —JOHN OXLEY: Yeah, he broke so good today that I actually lost him for a second. I said, did he come out? And then I was like, oh, there he is. So I know I was surprised.He broke so good that I felt like I was on board. But I tell you, when we got into that first turn and he was in a perfect spot, I jumped off (laughing).Q. Your thoughts about the spring, having been through a spring like that with Monarchos, and the thoughts you’ll be having?JOHN OXLEY: Winter’s coming up first, but I like snow, but I’m in Florida, so I never get it. But I love the spring, and had a good feeling once spring in the air. So I love spring and I love the journey up to the Triple Crown races. Each one will be a wonderful goal and a wonderful stop we hope. And we hope the good fortune lasts.Q. Talk about the attributes of this colt looking ahead to next year what would make you excited about this horse at races like Churchill Downs?MARK CASSE: He’s extremely smart. A lot of horses were getting warm — well, a lot of horses got warm late, but he just walks around and doesn’t really care. That’s always a nice thing to have in a Derby horse. He showed some speed today, but he’ll also rate.JULIEN LEPAROUX: Yeah, I asked him away from there, but he’s pretty easy to rate, too, if you have to.FastScripts Transcript by ASAP Sportslast_img read more

Travel chaos at US airports

first_imgLos Angeles International Airport – the world’s 8th largest – was gridlocked Sunday night by thousands of angry demonstrators protesting over President Trump’s ban on nationals of seven countries.The first demonstrations erupted on Saturday the day after Trump signed the order banning travel to the U.S. by citizens of Syria, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, Iran and Somalia. At Los Angeles International Airport many intending passengers were forced to abandon their taxis or buses and walk to the terminal.Rental car company buses took over 90 minutes – instead of 15 – to get to the airport. Many rental car customers returning their cars opted to walk the 30 minutes to the airport.The traffic gridlock also trapped airline crews with many flights delayed because of their late arrival.The demonstrators were peaceful but extremely noisy. Police was equipped with riot gear but took no action.Many of the signs read “We are all immigrants in America” and Let them go” referring to those travellers who were on route to the US when the ban was implemented. Other signs suggested the ban was reminiscent of the Nazi regime of the 1930s and labelled Trump’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon, who has just been appointed the Security Council a Nazi.On Saturday, a Federal Judge in New York issued an order blocking the government from deporting passengers with valid visas who arrived after the travel ban was implemented.However, confusion remains on the temporary ban, while the courts of Virginia, Washington and Massachusetts took similar action.A solution in the courts may take weeks to resolve commentators suggest. According to Associated Press Chicago Cardinal Blase Cupich, said on Sunday that the Trump’s measures were “rushed, chaotic, cruel and oblivious to the realities” of security. They had, he added, ushered in “a dark moment in U.S. history.”Airlines were warning passengers to get to the airport early during Sunday afternoon but not all could be contacted.Demonstrators say the campaign of disruption will last 30 days and impact other international airports such as San Diego, Seattle and San Francisco.last_img read more

Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City Now the biggest challenge for the Bolts is consistency in making their shots.All the small thingsWhat makes Ginebra’s league second-best offense work is its efficiency on the floor with its 46.10-percent shooting.Going 50.25-percent from two and 34.87-percent from three, the Gin Kings have been making the most of their shots.But with a series likely to decided on a couple of points, every basket matters, and that’s Ginebra’s achilles heel. The Gin Kings are the league’s worst free throw shooting team, going 64.29-percent from the charity stripe despite hoisting a league-high 434 free throw attempts.Meralco, on the other hand, have been diligent in capitalizing on those free points, going 73.02-percent from the 15-foot line to pair with its 44.68-percent field goal shooting.While a freethrow may just be a point, in a series expected to be down the wire at all times, these small things matter the most for each team.The sixth manIt’s been well-documented how the raucous crowd influence Ginebra games in the past.The Gin Kings have admitted how the audience have helped them get out of danger, while players from the other side also bared being a bit rattled by the rowdy crowd. It’s going to be a battle of adjustments and creativity with both coaches known to stick to a system. With both sides evenly matched, Cone and Black would have to figure out a way to gain the slightest advantage in what promises to be a series to go the distance.Great wall of GinebraAs if Ginebra’s small-ball tactic last season wasn’t dangerous enough, Cone unearthed a scheme opposite of that with the return of Greg Slaughter.With the Cebuano giant back in the fray, the Gin Kings have toyed with their roster and at times, unleashed a killer frontcourt five with a guard joining Slaughter, Japeth Aguilar, Justin Brownlee, and Joe Devance on the hard court.It shouldn’t come as a surprise, too, that Ginebra is second in the league in rebounds with 55.19 boards per game and first in blocks with 7.75 rejections per outing.Expect the Gin Kings to make the most of their strength and pound the ball down low.Bombs away BoltsHow do you counter that size advantage? Meralco’s way is drawing those bigs to the outside.The Bolts have capitalized on the power of the three-ball, topping the league with their 37-percent clip, much to Black’s delight.Baser Amer, Jared Dillinger, and Reynel Hugnatan have been fearless in hoisting those long balls, but Meralco’s arsenal just got deeper with the additions of Ranidel de Ocampo, Garvo Lanete, and Mike Tolomia, all of whom are ready to light it up once their hands wax hot.

Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Coaching chess matchIt’s easy to assume that series going down as offense-versus-defense, given the Gin Kings’ high-octane style against the Bolts’ grindhouse system.After all, Ginebra’s been averaging 103.7 points per game versus Meralco’s 98.19, but the Bolts are only allowing opponents to 89.8 markers per outing against the Gin Kings’ 98.8.But looking past that gives us a meeting of the minds as two of the most decorated and highly respected mentors in the league today engage in a coaching chess match.Tim Cone, seeking for ring no. 20, and Norman Black, who’s in search for his ninth title, square off anew for only the second time in the championship stage, with the first, of course, being last year’s duel.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

Fans filled parks, home and away, to catch a glimpse of Tebow in the outfield or at bat as a designated hitter.There were even fans at the taping of Tebow’s “SEC Nation” show Friday wearing his No. 15 Columbia Fireflies jersey.Tebow appreciated the applause. Now, he wants to earn it with better play.He didn’t provide any detail his training regimen, only saying he would hit as often as possible. There will be no organized instructional league this offseason before spring training starts.“You look at what you need to work on and it’s working on those things,” Tebow said. “Because it’s really hard to balance competing at a high level with learning and building on fundamentals.”Tebow said he’s got a strong relationship with New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson and all the coaches he’s worked with so far. His next stop is spring training with the focus on improvement.“Don’t focus on the end result. Don’t focus on where you are right now,” he said. “Focus on this is what I’ve got to do to get better.” “Loved it from the first at bat to the last at bat, it was a great experience,” Tebow said.Tebow, 30, was a good high school baseball player and on track to get looked at by Major League teams until he chose to play football at Florida. He was part of two national title teams with the Gators, became a first-round NFL draft pick and spent three seasons with Denver and the New York Jets. Looking for a challenge, Tebow relaunched his baseball career with a tryout camp in 2016 and was signed by the Mets soon after.“I think the other thing I really enjoy is I love competing,” Tebow said. “So baseball is fun because you get to play every night.”Tebow’s stats were not exactly eye-popping — he hit .226 in 126 combined games with the two teams and had eight home runs, 52 RBIs and 126 strikeouts — but he believes he made huge strides from his first game to his last and can build on that next season.“I don’t even feel like remotely close to the same player (in April) from fundamentals, pitch recognition, the outfield, running bases,” Tebow said. “That was the first after dropping (baseball) for 12 years. I was learning on the fly.”ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES MOST READ Stronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion Columbia Fireflies’ Tim Tebow.

My hat-trick won’t mean anything if we don’t win: Stuart Broad

first_imgEngland’s hat-trick hero Stuart Broad on Saturday said that his feat would mean nothing if his side fails to win the second cricket Test and take a 2-0 lead over the Indians in the series.”It won’t mean anything if we don’t win this Test. We need to post a big score. Somebody needs to get a big hundred and so tomorrow is a huge day,” said Broad, who took a sensational hat-trick in front of his home crowd, at the post-match press conference.”We need to get 300 and then apply pressure through our seamers. The wicket would have a variable bounce (in the fourth innings),” he said.Broad, in his sensational spell in the final session on Saturday, took four wickets from six balls for no run — including the wickets of Mahendra Singh Dhoni (5), Harbhajan Singh (0) and Praveen Kumar (0) off successive balls.”We tried to build pressure the whole day. I thought heavy roller (taken by India in the morning), played a huge role. The wicket was quite slow and did not do huge amount of help for us.”But we wanted to build pressure for here you can have wickets in quick succession. Fortunately, we managed it late in the day. I said yesterday (Friday) that India had three quarters of the day and it was the same today (Saturday). Fortunately, we nipped the last session,” he said.The tall local bowler had words of praise for Rahul Dravid who managed a hundred while opening the innings.advertisement”He played fantastically well. The way he left balls is an example for us tomorrow (Sunday). He is hard to bowl, allows the ball to come to him. He had a bit of luck but still it was a fantastic hundred. We were happy to see the back of him.”It was very pleasing to see him standing at the other end while wickets fell quickly (this end),” said Broad who returned with career-best figures of 6/46.Broad disclosed that number three batsman Jonathan Trott, who fell over his right shoulder and hurt himself, did not have any structural damage but it’s unlikely he would come out to bat till number six.This is the third hat-trick which Broad has managed during his career although his first since the last one he got at under-15 level.-With PTI inputslast_img read more

first_imgSolskjaer hands Man Utd board six man shopping listby Paul Vegas13 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have handed the board a six man shopping list.The Daily Mail says so far, they have relied on the eyes and ears of Solskjaer, Mike Phelan, veteran scout Jim Lawlor and his recruitment staff.They have given transfer chiefs Ed Woodward and Matt Judge the names of half-a-dozen targets but United would prefer to wait until the summer to make big signings having had their fingers burned on Alexis Sanchez in the January 2018 transfer window.On that occasion, the club backed Jose Mourinho by giving Sanchez record wages to gazzump Manchester City but the move turned into a disaster with the Chilean scoring just five goals for his £42million salary before joining Inter Milan on loan.They are also reluctant to rip up their plans and change targets in January as a knee-jerk reaction to them becoming available.

Poor TCE Rates Push Scorpio Tankers to Loss

first_imgzoom Due to low time charter equivalent (TCE) rates, Monaco-based tanker shipping company Scorpio Tankers suffered a net loss of USD 11.5 million in the first quarter of 2017, against a net income of USD 28 million posted in the same period last year. From January to March 2017, TCE revenue decreased to USD 120.3 million from USD 164.8 million seen in the same quarter a year earlier. As disclosed, this decrease was driven by a drop in overall TCE revenue per day to USD 14,408 in the fist quarter of 2017 from USD 20,203 during the three-month period of 2016.“TCE revenue per day decreased across all of our operating segments as unfavorable market conditions that developed during the second half of 2016, driven by the delivery of newbuildings, high product inventories, low refining margins and a lack of arbitrage opportunities, persisted into the first quarter of 2017,” Scorpio Tankers said.In April, Scorpio Tankers entered into agreements to sell and leaseback three MR product tankers, STI Beryl, STI Le Rocher and STI Larvotto, to an unaffiliated third party. Two of these sales were completed this month and the third is expected to close prior to May 1.“Upon closing, all amounts outstanding under the company’s 2011 credit facility are expected to be fully repaid, and the company’s liquidity is expected to increase by an aggregate of approximately USD 30 million,” according to Scorpio Tankers.In February and March, the tanker owner took delivery of STI Selatar and STI Rambla, two LR2 product tankers, from Sungdong Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (SSME).In addition, STI Galata and STI Bosphorus, two MR product tankers that were under construction at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD), were handed over to the company in March and April, respectively.As of April, Scorpio Tankers’ owned fleet comprised 79 vessels with an aggregate tonnage of 5.17 million dwt. Additionally, the company had 21 ships in its time or bareboat chartered-in fleet, with a total tonnage of 1.02 million dwt.last_img read more
