A victory by one would give the two-time Triple Crown king his sixth Derby triumph, tying him with H.A. (Jimmy) Jones for most wins by a trainer.Trainers’ comments from A to Z follow:Paul Aguirre: “Roadster and Game Winner.”Rafael Beccera: “I have to look at the PP’s.”Vann Belvoir: “I love the way Improbable worked the other day.”David Bernstein: “I was an Omaha Beach fan, but now I’m going with the Bafferts.”Jeff Bonde: “It’s wide open. I think Game Winner’s got a big chance but he’ll have to overcome the mud.”Jack Carava: “Game Winner. He’s well-seasoned and will probably like the track.”Matt Chew: Maximum Security.”Vladimir Cerin: “Improbable.”Phil D’Amato: “Baffert.”Keith Desormeaux: “Tacitus.

He got beat up and kept coming.”Craig Dollase: “Baffert’s lookin’ good.”Carla Gaines: “I’ve gotta go with Game Winner.”Paddy Gallagher: “Bob Baffert.”Victor Garcia: “Tough call.”Mark Glatt: “Maximum Security.”Dean Greenman: “Game Winner and Spinoff.”Dan Hendricks: “Tacitus.”Steve Knapp: “Roadster.”Eric Kruljac: “Maximum Security and Game Winner.”Ian Kruljac: “Baffert first, second and third.”Andrew Lerner: “Maximum Security.”Craig Lewis: Baffert’s are all good, but if I had to take one, I’d take Game Winner.”Alfredo Marquez: “Roadster.”Ron McAnally: “Baffert’s got to win it again with one of them.”Michael McCarthy: “I like all my people–(Todd) Pletcher, (George) Weaver and John Velazquez. That’s who my heart says, but my head says Game Winner and Roadster.”Derek Meredith: “Roadster, especially if it’s muddy.”Hector Palma: “Game Winner. It’s too bad what happened to Mandella (Richard, trainer of Omaha Beach).”George Papaprodromou: “Improbable.”Dean Pederson: “I’ve been on Game Winner since Dal Mar; no sense changing now.”Jorge Periban: “Roadster.”Marcelo Polanco: “Roadster.”Mike Puype: “Improbable has a win over the track and likes the mud (the forecast calls for 100 percent chance of rain in Louisville on Saturday).”Doug O’Neill: “By My Standards. He’s a Goldencents baby.”Tom Proctor: “Game Winner.”Javier Jose Sierra: “Baffert.”Gary Sherlock: “Bob Baffert. I just don’t know which one, although I like Improbable.

He’s definitely an exacta horse.”Tim Yakteen: “Game Winner.”Howard Zucker: “Game Winner.”Fans can participate in the biggest Derby party west of Kentucky tomorrow at Santa Anita. Live racing, music, food trucks and hat contests will be the order of the day.Admission gates open early at 7:30 a.m.THREE-TIME DERBY WINNER ESPINOZA VIEWS IT FROM AFARA year ago at this time, Victor Espinoza was poised to ride Bolt d’Oro in quest of hisfourth Kentucky Derby victory, in what would prove to be a fruitless journey.Little would he or anyone else know that two months later he would suffer injuries in atraining mishap that would threaten not only his career but his mobility for the rest of his life.After an arduous seven-month rehabilitation ordeal, in what could be termed a medicalmiracle, the 46-year-old Hall of Fame member who piloted American Pharoah to a Triple Crown sweep in 2015 is back doing what he loves, riding and winning races.No Kentucky Derby mount this year for Espinoza, who won it on War Emblem in 2002 and California Chrome in 2014 before making history with American Pharoah.Tomorrow, he’ll watch the Derby from the jocks’ room at Santa Anita, and after havingobserved Santa Anita-based Game Winner, Improbable and Roadster from an unfamiliar perspective–good old terra firma–he does have an opinion on the race.“I’ve been watching all of them,” Espinoza said, “and the most important thing to me was their last work before the Derby. The one that had been most impressive was Omaha Beach, but I liked Game Winner’s work, too.”If he had a choice, which would he ride? “It would have been between those two,” hesaid, “although I wouldn’t discount some of the horses from back east.”Espinoza and his agent, Brian Beach, designed a strategic and diligent program for hiscomeback, which to date has been a well-defined success, with four victories from 13 mounts during the spring portion of the meet that began April 12.But relatively speaking, Espinoza sees the glass as half empty.“I feel great, and so far, so good,” he said, “but I want to win more races. That’s what I’m here for–to win. I came back to win, do the best I can and find the next champion.”SCOTT STEVENS TO RECEIVE WOOLF AWARD ON MAY 19In what will surely be an intensely emotional moment, veteran jockey Scott Stevens will be presented with the 2019 George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award in a Winner’s Circle ceremony at Santa Anita on Sunday, May 19.A winner of more than 4,800 races in a career that has spanned 43 years, Stevens will be joined on May 19 by family, friends and colleagues, including the 1996 Woolf Award winner, retired Hall of Famer Gary Stevens, as the pair thus become the first brotherly tandem to win the prestigious award in its 70-year history.The winner via a vote of jockeys nationwide, Stevens placed first among a list of five finalists that included Joe Bravo, Kerwin Clark, John Davila, Jr. and Julien Leparoux.“I know I was there when Gary won, but honestly, it’s been so long ago, I don’t remember,” said Stevens from his base at Turf Paradise in Phoenix. “This award is so special and I was honored just to be nominated. When you think about all the great riders and people who have won it and to be selected by a vote of your peers . . . It’s more than I can describe.”Born Oct. 6, 1960 in Caldwell, Idaho, Stevens is the son of a former trainer, Ron, and rodeo queen, Barbara. Steeped in the ways of the horse-world from infancy, Stevens, who has more than 32,400 career mounts, broke his maiden on May 30, 1976 at Les Bois Park in Boise, at the age of 15.A member of both the Idaho and Canterbury Park (MN) Halls of Fame, Stevens has been a helpful, guiding influence to scores of young jockeys for decades.A nine-time leading rider at Turf Paradise, Stevens, who resides in Phoenix with his longtime partner Pam Isles, has two grown children, a daughter Jessica and a son, Jake, as well as five grandchildren, four of whom will join him on May 19.Named for the legendary Hall of Fame jockey George Woolf, who died at age 35 following a spill on Santa Anita’s Club House turn on Jan. 3, 1946, the Woolf Award can only be won once, and it is intended to recognize those riders whose careers and personal character earn esteem for the individual and the sport of Thoroughbred horse racing.The Woolf trophy is a replica of the life-size statue of George Woolf which adorns Santa Anita’s Paddock Gardens Area.ARROYO BACK RIDING WITH YOUTHFUL ENTHUSIASMNorberto Arroyo Jr. is back doing what he loves best–riding horses–after recovering from a broken right ankle in a mishap at Del Mar last November.“I had three surgeries,” he said. “They put in screws the first time, took them out, put them in again and left a piece of the screw in so I had to have a third surgery but I’m good now and doing better than ever.”The native of Puerto Rico is represented by his brother, agent Mike Ciani.“I’m 40 but I feel like I’m 20,” said the upbeat Norberto. “Age is just a number.”LATEST CONTENT FROM XBTV:Game Winner galloped at Churchill Downs (Baffert) 5-03-19Improbable galloped at Churchill Downs (Baffert) 5-03-19Roadster galloped at Churchill Downs (Baffert) 5-03-19Bob Baffert discusses his Oaks and Derby contenders. 5-03-19Owner and Breeder  Arthur Hancock talks about Roadster ahead of Kentucky Derby 5-03-19Exercise Rider  Humberto Gomez latest update on Roadster, Game Winner, & Improbable have trained leading up to the Kentucky Derby. 5-03-19Bob Baffert Q & A ahead of the Kentucky Derby 5-01-19Desert Oasis (Outside) in company with  Kodiak West work 4 furlongs (Drysdale) 5-01-19One Bad Boy (Outside) in company with  Two Thirty Five work 5 furlongs (Baltas) 5-01-19Polity works 5 furlongs (Hofmans) 5-01-19Raneem works 5 furlongs (Baffert) 5-01-19     FINISH LINES: Trainer Michael McCarthy has Frank E.

first_imgDiscreet performance of the base, with eight pointsWilly also lost with eight points and seven rebounds Photo: Reuters The return of the Spanish base Ricky Rubio after overcoming his ankle discomfort has not prevented a new defeat of Phoenix Suns in his visit to Brooklyn Nets (119-97), while the Hornets of Willy Hernangómez have not been able to stand up in their feud before Orlando Magic (100-112).center_img The Suns continue their bad streak and fit their third consecutive setback to keep moving away from the playoff positions in the Western Conference, which already have five wins.Ricky Rubio played less than 19 minutes in his return to action in which he contributed 8 points (2/7 in shots), 3 rebounds and 2 assists. DeandreAyton (25 and 17 rebounds) was the best of some Suns who accused the bad day of their star Devin Booker (3/15 in the basket shot).Despite Kyrie Irving’s absence, the Nets were quite superior, especially in the third quarter, when they broke the game with a 35-21 run. With Caris LeVert (29) as the most outstanding man, the home team lived a placid end of the match to sign up for the victory.On the other hand, Willy Hernangómez played 21 minutes in which he added 8 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists for some Hornets that continue in free fall and already have 11 defeats in their last 12 commitments, a streak that has sunk them until the twelfth place from the east.Faced with a rival of ‘his’ league like Orlando Magic, Charlotte could not find answers to stop Nikola Vucevic (22), Evan Fournier (17) and Aaron Gordon (16 and 12 rebounds) and added a new disappointment in the Spectrum Center .last_img read more

At the same rhythm. There are 13 days left before Liverpool against the Wanda Metropolitano.Costa’s return to the group today is within the planned deadlines, although in principle he will not have minutes against Granada.

He tried the previous day, with Saponjic holder, but also a variant.Because in one of the Cholo events, Koke was still the starter for the game against Granada but on the right wing while Llorente took his place in the center and Saponjic left eleven. The front was formed by Vitolo and Correa. Oblak; Vrsaljko, Savic, Beautiful, Lodi; Koke, Llorente, Thomas, Saul; Correa and Vitolo. Then he returned to work yesterday with Oblak; Vrsaljko, Savic, Beautiful, Lodi; Correa, Koke, Thomas, Saul; Vitolo and Saponjic.Giménez has two days with pharyngotonsillitis.
