Lynam sprinters Flying first class

first_img Press Association The eight-year-old holds an entry in the Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock on Saturday week but is unlikely to make the journey as the going is expected to be soft. “He’s a wonderful horse. He ran a great race at York. Frankie (Dettori) was delighted with him,” Lynam told At The Races. “He needed to handle soft ground to win it and the winner was the best sprinter on the day, but he ran a very good race. “I get the impression talking to Kirkland Tellwright, the clerk of the course in Haydock, that the going is very soft and the weather forecast is pretty bad, so I think he might run in the Flying Five. “That’s where he’ll probably go and I might run three in it. “I messed up with Anthem Alexander. She had a few hard races and I should have given her a break earlier. “She’s had a break now. She’s put on a bit of weight and is really happy in herself again, so I’d dismiss her last run. “She’ll run and Moviesta will run. Sole Power is set to spearhead Eddie Lynam’s three-pronged attack on the Derrinstown Stud Flying Five Stakes at the Curragh on September 13. Moviesta and Anthem Alexander would give the County Meath handler a formidable hand in the Group Two during Irish Champions Weekend, but all eyes will be on Sole Power, whose appearances in his native land have been in short supply because of limited opportunities. The five-times Group One winner ran his usual creditable race when fourth to Mecca’s Angel in the Nunthorpe Stakes at York last week on ground that would not have suited him. “It took us a while to get the hang of him, then we thought we’d cracked it with him and he ran very well in the Sapphire, the Group Two up at the Curragh (third to Stepper Point). “Unfortunately, we had a mishap in Goodwood, but he was very good the other day. “Chris Hayes was very good and we’re looking forward to running him again.” last_img read more

Carlini capping off strong season with Freshman of the Week honors

first_imgJill PetersA true team player and an extraordinary athlete, Wisconsin’s Lauren Carlini was named the Big Ten Co-Freshman of the Week after a stellar performance this past weekend against Indiana Friday and Purdue Saturday.Recording back-to-back career bests in assists with an average of 12.78 assists per set over two matches, Carlini led all Big Ten setters on the weekend. Friday she put up a then career high 53 assists at Indiana before beating that with 62 assists at Purdue Saturday. This is Carlini’s first Big Ten weekly honor.While she is happy with the accomplishment, Carlini said she would take this award away in a heartbeat if it could have given the Badgers two more points to win the Purdue game.“It’s all about give and take,” she said.This 6-2 freshman has continued to prove herself in the competitive Big Ten conference. Head coach Kelly Sheffield is proud of her accomplishment and how she is developing not only as a player but also a leader on the court.“I think she is doing a really good job,” Sheffield said. “She is getting more confident and comfortable being able to direct her teammates and I think that’s a tough thing … She studies her craft and she works really, really hard. It’s paying off. I see her getting a lot stronger.”Carlini jumped right into a leadership role being placed as starting setter at the beginning of the season. Since then, the 2012 National Gatorade Player of the Year has continued to prove herself and carry the team further each match.“I have learned to kind of embrace [these] roles, it is something that I have kind of had to do over the years,” Carlini said. “I’ve usually been on teams who are older than me, so I have to learn how to play that role and kind of figure out my position on the court.”Junior Courtney Thomas, a longtime teammate, played with Carlini at the same club and expressed her excitement to have this freshman join the team. Carlini looked at the other girls as mentors as they helped her transition into her leadership role. Thomas said Carlini is adjusting well to her leadership position and taking on an integral role within the team.“She is really helping out our team a lot. She’s adjusted really, really well. I would never look at her and think she is a freshman, she is very confident and that is really key … She really knows how to communicate with us.”Along with Big Ten Co-Freshman of the week, Carlini has a team-leading 14 double-doubles so far this season, making her the top freshman in the country in that category.Carlini is already looking down the road to the Big Ten Conference. She wants to win.“I just want to lead my team. We are going to take it one game at a time and that’s going to be a big thing for all of us. I hope to lead us as far as we can into that.”last_img read more

Mediatech Solutions (R. Franco Group) – Sponsor Profile – #bofcon2017

first_img Winamax maintains Granada CF sponsorship despite bleak Spanish outlook August 19, 2020 Related Articles Submit Mediatech Solutions (R. Franco Group) is sponsoring Betting on Football 2017, the fourth edition of the largest international football and betting trade conference at Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge.Ahead of the 3-5 May event, we spoke to Mediatech Executive Director Daniel Graetzer about why football is such an attractive sport for betting, how the market is changing from a consumer perspective and how betting and football stakeholders can work more effectively together.SBC: Why is football such an attractive sport for betting?DG: In Spain, where Mediatech Solutions – R. Franco is based, we are fortunate to have two of the biggest clubs in world football – Real Madrid and Barcelona – so it’s no surprise to learn that football is by far our most popular sport. Like any other region, football and betting go hand in hand and Spain is no exception. For an audience so in love with the beautiful game, betting offers an additional form of entertainment alongside their favourite sport. Fans always want to get themselves even more involved in the action, and betting is the perfect medium for that.SBC: From a consumer perspective, how is football betting changing?DG: In-play software has completely revolutionised the way customers bet on football. Pre-match markets will always be popular, but to be able to bet on who will win the next corner or score the next goal during an actual live football match has certainly been a game changer. In Spain, we have also seen a huge rise in the number of people betting in sports in general. According to figures released by the Spanish regulator, sportsbook revenue rose 32% in 2016 on the previous year to €238.2 million. The popularity of sport, in particular football, will undoubtedly grow in the region and we expect more operators to enter the market as a result.SBC: How can betting & football stakeholders work better and more effectively together?DG: In my experience with the gaming side of the industry, the football betting sector needs to work closely alongside regulators and other stakeholders, and seek a mutual understanding of each other’s requirements. Lawmakers’ have the unenviable task of determining what’s best for a newly-regulated territory such as Spain, and balancing the political needs with the practical desires of the sports betting industry and its customers can be difficult. We have found that an honest and open discussion is the best for all parties.SBC: What new technology do you feel will have the biggest impact on football betting?DG: As mentioned earlier, in-play betting has made a huge impact on the football betting industry and this will continue as suppliers look to further innovate by offering more markets than ever.However, operators on a flexible platform run by those with local expertise will be the ones at an advantage, especially in Spain.This allows for operators to engage in marketing specific to the target audience, alter user experience and prioritise the product offering based on demand and regulation.SBC: What key agenda, debate or discussion do you want to hear at BOFCON 2017?DG: I’m hugely looking forward to representing Mediatech by speaking on the panel discussing the potential of the Spanish and LatAM markets. There is great optimism within the Spanish online gambling market at the moment after recording record-breaking revenues and turnover last year. There is definitely an appetite for further growth in the market, not just with sports but with casino. With a solid and evolving regulatory framework in place, the challenge facing Spain now is to push forward with innovation across areas such as server-based retail gaming, where we are now able to create a full omni-channel experience, and expand into new verticals such as virtual sports.I wouldn’t be surprised to see more of Europe’s major operators make moves in Spain in the coming months and years.

Should Dodgers still purse trade for Aroldis Chapman?

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said Tuesday that a player’s market value decreases “every time” that player has a criminal record. For the executive focused solely on increasing the value of his roster, the more crimes the player commits, the better. A free man with multiple felony convictions, the left arm of Randy Johnson, the bat speed of Barry Bonds, and a glove box full of unpaid parking tickets would be the ideal free agent or trade target.To that end, Friedman said he draws a line of citizenship that cannot be crossed.“Of course,” he said.Friedman can’t publicly comment on Chapman, who is still under contract to the Reds. Speaking generally, Friedman said “we do a tremendous amount of work on players we’re going to acquire or potentially going to acquire, in terms of make-up on field, type of teammate, type of person, and factor it all into the assessment.”In the past, those assessments have not deterred Friedman from trading for an accused rapist (Josh Lueke, who pled no contest to false imprisonment with violence) when he worked for the Tampa Bay Rays.• WHICKER: Dodgers, Angels should trade lightly at Winter MeetingsIn this instance Chapman wasn’t formally accused, let alone convicted, of committing a crime.“Even when we were with the Rays we did a tremendous amount of work on guys, to go into any decision with our eyes wide-open and talk through things,” Friedman said, “and understand the pros, the cons, trying to figure out what made the most sense.”AlsoThe contracts for free agent pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma and second baseman Chase Utley were still not finalized late Tuesday, presumably because their physicals have not been completed yet. … According to one report, the Miami Marlins asked the Dodgers for Julio Urias, Corey Seager, Joc Pederson and two more players in a trade for pitcher Jose Fernandez. Urias, who finished the season at Triple-A, is the Dodgers’ consensus number-1 prospect. … Asked if he considered Urias “untouchable” in any trade, Friedman said “I think the thing we pride ourselves on is not having any hard and fast rules. We’re open minded to having different conversations.” Ultimately, Chapman’s girlfriend chose not to file charges.“We want to make sure we have all the information and then the decision will be made,” said MLB’s Chief Baseball Officer, Joe Torre. “The only timetable is when we feel we’ve got as much information as we can get.”• RELATED: Miami DA reviewing Chapman’s domestic dispute caseMeanwhile the Dodgers, or any team interested in trading for Chapman, will have to place those negotiations on the back burner.The situation also invites an ethical dilemma. Given the contents of the police report, would fans continue to embrace a team that employs Chapman?center_img NASHVILLE >> When reports of a potential Dodgers trade for Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman first surfaced Sunday, it tested the boundaries of the baseball imagination. Two All-Star closers on the same roster? One, if the Dodgers traded Kenley Jansen and kept the Cuban left-hander with a 104-mph fastball?The imagination can still run wild. As of Tuesday, the trade isn’t off. Neither is it on, as long as Major League Baseball is investigating Chapman’s role in a domestic dispute in October. As first reported by Yahoo! Sports, Chapman’s girlfriend told police that the pitcher placed her in a choke-hold, then later fired gunshots in another part of their house during the argument. She and Chapman have an infant daughter who was also in the house. Chapman’s girlfriend told police that she gathered up the girl and ran out of the house in fear.last_img read more

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen in no hurry to see MLB speed up pace of play

first_img Dodgers enter 2018 motivated to avenge World Series disappointment Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen is not a big fan of the proposed rules changes.“Football is four hours, 4 ½ hours,” Jansen said. “The Super Bowl was five hours. Baseball fans are not going to stop watching because the game is too long. Let’s stop that. I think that’s ridiculous.”Jansen blamed the length of games on the way hitting approaches have changed and the number of pitchers pushed to the big leagues before they have learned to throw more than one or two pitches for strikes.“Hitters are different now, because there’s no contact hitters anymore,” Jansen said. “Everybody wants to swing for the fences all the time. There’s a lot more strikeouts. And a lot of walks because pitchers don’t command now. … If pitchers can’t command their secondary pitches, the game is going to be long.”Jansen will be taking his time this spring. The Dodgers closer was one of the pitchers who threw bullpen sessions during Wednesday’s first official workout. But he will be eased into things this spring and won’t pitch often in Cactus League games as a nod to his expanded workload during the Dodgers’ playoff runs the past two years. TOLES PLANIt has been nearly nine months since Andrew Toles underwent surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and the Dodgers outfielder said he is working out without any limitations. He is expected to be ready to participate when Cactus League games start next week but Roberts said Toles might be held back “a tick” but won’t be “far behind the rest of the group.”“The medical staff wants to really take it a little bit slower and be methodical about it – which is smart,” Roberts said.Once games start in the minor-league camp, Toles might get playing time there to accumulate at-bats, Roberts said. Toles said he doesn’t know how things will play out this spring.“I can’t predict the future,” he said. “We’ll have to see.” GLENDALE, Ariz. – MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred has made it clear that he wants to shorten the length of games and is willing to make significant rules changes (like a 20-second pitch clock and limitations on mound visits) to do so.So far, the players and their union have not been willing to go along with the proposed changes, and Manfred has not followed through on threats to unilaterally implement the new rules.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he expects there to be “some finality” on whether any changes will go into effect for this season before the start of preseason games next week.“If it does happen, it’s going to happen before games start,” Roberts said. “As I understand it, there’s dialogue and before games start here there will be some finality.” Dodgers key spring training dates Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers’ Matt Kemp has some explaining to do about ‘baseball town’ remark WHY DARVISH MATH DIDN’T ADD UPThough the Dodgers never closed the door on re-signing Yu Darvish until the right-hander agreed on a contract with the Chicago Cubs last week, Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman acknowledged that it would have been difficult for the Dodgers to sign him and still maintain their primary goal this offseason – keeping this year’s payroll under the competitive-balance tax threshold.“We knew that it was going to require a ‘Triple Lindy’ of sorts,” Friedman said. “So any time that’s a factor it just reduces the chances. It was more a situation that if it had been distressed enough, just a weird market in terms of how it played out, there could potentially be a scenario. But he ended up doing very well for himself, rightfully so, and we wish him nothing but the best.”Darvish signed a six-year, $126 million deal with the Cubs.TIMMY TIMEFriedman confirmed that the Dodgers will have a representative scouting Tim Lincecum at the two-time Cy Young Award winner’s showcase in the Seattle area Thursday.Lincecum, 33, has not pitched since going 2-6 with a 9.16 ERA in nine starts for the Angels in 2016. He has been working at Driveline Baseball in suburban Seattle this offseason with an eye towards making a comeback. The Dodgers have had a relationship with Driveline in the past, sending pitching prospects to the academy that uses data-driven technology to enhance velocity and refine pitching mechanics.At least a dozen teams are expected to have scouts at Lincecum’s workout.Related Articles Matt Kemp ready for his unexpected reunion tour with Dodgers last_img read more
