first_imgBRILL, CARRESSA, KEEPER OFTHE STARS & SUPER PATRIOT ALL PROMINENT IN MONDAY’S GRADE III, $100,000 MEGAHERTZ STAKES AT ONE MILE ON TURF ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 17, 2020)–A recent stakes winner over the course, OXO Equine’s Brill heads a solid field of eight fillies and mares going one mile on turf in Monday’s Grade III, $100,000 Megahertz Stakes at Santa Anita.Trained by Don Chatlos, Brill sped to an impressive gate to wire victory in the one mile turf Lady of Shamrock Stakes on opening day, Dec. 28, which was her first-ever try on grass.In a very competitive lineup, trainer John Shirreffs’ Carressa, a lightly raced 4-year-old daughter of Uncle Mo, has been idle since daylighting allowance foes at one mile on dirt Nov. 22 and appears ready for her first stakes assignment, which will also be her first try on turf.Runner-up as the 6-5 favorite to Brill in the Lady of Shamrock, Keeper Ofthe Stars, a winner of the Grade III Autumn Miss Stakes over the course three starts back rates a huge chance for trainer Jonathon Wong and California-bred Super Patriot, who comes off a nose defeat in the one mile turf Kathryn Crosby Stakes Nov. 8 at Del Mar, rates a big chance as well.BRILLOwner:  OXO Equine, LLCTrainer:  Don ChatlosA $1 million 2-year-old in training sale purchase in 2017, Brill, although twice graded stakes placed, appears poised to garner her first graded victory in what will be her ninth career start. Off at 7-2 in the eight-horse Lady of Shamrock, Brill bounded to early lead when ridden for the first time by Mike Smith and won well within herself.  Her biggest concern early could be Carressa, who employed similar tactics in her allowance win on dirt.CARRESSAOwner:  Mercedes Stables, LLC & West Point ThoroughbredsTrainer:  John ShirreffsWell beaten in a pair of main track sprints this past spring, she resurfaced on Aug. 22, 2019 at Del Mar and was a galloping 4 ¼ length maiden winner at odds of 5-1 in what was her third career start. Second in her next start, a one mile allowance her Oct. 6, Carressa then pressed the pace and took charge heading down the backside en route to a smashing 8 ¼ length one mile allowance tally on Nov. 22 at Del Mar. With a Megahertz-best last out Beyer Speed figure of 90 in hand, Carressa, who will be making her sixth career start, could be extremely tough in her first try on turf.KEEPER OFTHE STARSOwner:  Tommy Town Thoroughbreds, LLCTrainer:  Jonathan WongAttentive to the pace throughout, Keeper ofthe Stars was second, beaten 1 ¾ lengths by Brill on opening day with no apparent excuses as the favorite. Favored in three out of her last four races and a winner of two of them, the 4-year-old filly by Midnight Lute has proven most effective when she’s allowed to ramble on the front end, which could prove problematic with several front-running fillies engaged.SUPER PATRIOTOwner:  Little Red Feather Racing, Peskoff or Salvatore, et alTrainer:  Richard BaltasA 5-year-old California-bred daughter of Unusual Heat, she comes off a desperate nose defeat in the one mile turf Kathryn Crosby Stakes at Del Mar on Nov. 8, a race in which she rallied from far off the early pace. Claimed five starts back for $35,000 on June 8, Super Patriot, who will be making her first graded stakes start, could be the beneficiary of rapid early pace on Monday.THE GRADE III MEGAHERTZ STAKES WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTS IN POST POSITION ORDERRace 7 of 8  Approximate post time 3:30 p.m. PTCarressa–Victor Espinoza–120Take These Chains–Umberto Rispoli–120Keeper ofthe Stars–Abel Cedillo–124Tonahutu–Andrea Atzeni–120Streak of Luck–Jose Valdivia, Jr.–120Brill–Mike Smith–122La Sardane–Flavien Prat–120Super Patriot–Joel Rosario–120     First post time for an eight-race card on Monday is at 12:30 p.m. For additional information, please visit santaanita.com or call (626) 574-RACE.last_img read more

Ind vs WI- 3rd ODI Preview: Optimistic Windies out to disrupt India’s momentum

first_imgAdvertisement AdvertisementImage Courtesy: India TodayAfter the thrilling tie at Vishakapatnam, the two sides head to Pune for the all-important 3rd ODI that may change the complexion of the series.The young Windies side have given the Men In Blue a run for their money. Fearless batting by the batsmen have forced the hosts to recall regular bowlers in the form of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah at the expense of Mohammed Shami.The high scoring series so far has rightly been touted as the battle of the sixes. With both sides being satisfied with the efforts put in with the bat, it is the bowling that has left the teams vulnerable.Balance is of the utmost importance for Indian skipper Virat Kohli as the hosts still in the experimentation phase to determine their balanced XI for the much awaited World Cup in 2019.Meanwhile, the Windies, despite unable to secure a victory in Indian soil so far, will be satisfied with the progress that they have attained over the course of this challenging tour for an inexperienced squad.Players to watch out for:Virat Kohli: This is an absolute no-brainer, the Indian skipper has been churning out the runs in 2018. It would be foolish to bet against the No.3 batsman who has a good ODI record in Pune.Shimron Hetmeyer: This goes without saying, the 21-year-old has been on the prowl and has accumulated around 200 runs in the first two ODI’s. The hard-hitting batsman would relish playing in the Pune track with short boundaries.When: Saturday, October 27, 2018, at 1:30 PM localHow To Watch: Star Sports Network and HotstarPredicted XI:India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Manish Pandey, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra ChahalWest Indies: Kieran Powell, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Marlon Samuels, Rovman Powell, Jason Holder, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach, Oshane ThomasRead Also:Virat Kohli’s secret for success: “I don’t feel any entitlement”Injury concerns on the fore as selectors leave out Kedar Jhadavlast_img read more
