Perry Ouzts

first_imgUnless you are a horse racing fan, you probably have never heard of Perry Ouzts.  He just recently rode his 7,000th horse to victory.  Most of his wins came at the old River Downs in Cincinnati which has been refurbished into Belterra Park.The 64-year old Ouzts is a native of Greater Cincinnatiand does not like to stray very far from this area.  He will go to the other Kentucky tracks, if asked, and he does occasionally race at Indiana Grand in Shelbyville.  He is the 9th jockey to reach this level of wins.  He has ridden over 50,000 mounts in his career.  Fortunately, for me, he has allowed me to make a little money at the track. Whenever I see his name in the program, I know it will be a good bet to take.Congratulations, Perry!last_img

World Athletics to expel Russia unless it pays $6.3m fine

first_img Loading… “We have had to plough the field ourselves on most occasions. But I am pleased we had made a bit of a breakthrough. It is a start, but only a start. “At least we are now in a position to continue the reinstatement process having at least had a very clear indication that they have accepted the seriousness and severity of the situation. “The proof of the pudding will be in the reinstatement plan that we have from them.” Matytsin, the sports minister, welcomed World Athletics’ decision as “constructive”. “We see a desire from World Athletics to work together with the Russian side,” he said, quoted by Russian agencies. The global governing body for athletics said Thursday it would expel Russia unless it makes an outstanding payment of $6.3 million in fines and costs for anti-doping violations by August 15. The Russian athletics federation has been suspended since 2015, and its athletes were barred from the 2016 Rio Olympics. Rune Andersen, the head of the World Athletics Taskforce dealing with Russia’s reinstatement efforts, said he had seen “very little in terms of changing the culture of Russian athletics” in the past five years. Andersen said Russia’s sports minister Oleg Matytsin had given an “unconditional commitment” in a letter on Thursday that the overdue amount of $5 million in fines and $1.31 million in costs would be paid by August 15. The federation missed the previous deadline of July 1. World Athletics said it would call on its Congress to meet “as soon as possible” to vote virtually to expel the Russian federation (RUSAF) from the sport, if the outstanding amount is not paid. An expulsion would mean Russian athletes are sidelined from international competitions including the Tokyo Olympics next year, and taking in those who had previously been authorised to compete as neutrals. As well as paying the fine, World Athletics has demanded RUSAF set out a detailed plan for its reinstatement by August 31, including commitments for anti-doping and governance reforms World Athletics President Sebastian Coe said following a two-day virtual meeting of his federation’s Council that dealing with Russia had been “tortuous”. “The history here has been a sad and deeply ingrained one,” Coe added. Coe claimed athletics had been “a lone voice as a sport” in fighting Russian doping.

Leading Russian athletes Maria Lasitskene, Sergey Shubenkov and Anzhelika Sidorova have been openly critical of their federation and in June asked President Vladimir Putin to find a way to allow them to compete in the Tokyo Olympics.

Poyet banking on Johnson form

first_img Uruguayan Poyet said 11-cap Johnson must guide his side to Premier League safety to force his way back into the England reckoning. “I will help him and I will try to help him to put him there,” said Poyet. “And I will tell you why. If Johnno makes the World Cup we are in the Premier League for sure. “Normally when you reach 26 there are no more excuses. “You’re experienced enough, but you’re not old yet, so you still have the pace and the ability, so that’s when you have to be at your best. “You understand the game better, you have played against everybody everywhere so there is no pressure you can’t handle. “So I hope that his form now will give us a big opportunity to stay up.” Johnson left Manchester City in the summer of 2012 in a bid for regular first-team football. Hat-trick hero Adam Johnson has “no more excuses” not to reach his potential and drag Sunderland to Barclays Premier League safety, according to manager Gus Poyet. Press Association After a long fight for form, Poyet now believes the 26-year-old is hitting his peak again. “Johnno today, he would make the difference at any level,” said Poyet. “He’s been like that for the last few weeks. “I always believe there’s a responsibility on the player, he needs to take responsibility for playing well or badly. “But certain players need a team to perform one way or play one kind of football. “We were looking to get that style of play for him to take advantage and make the difference. “We’ve been getting close, but we couldn’t go on to the next level and today we clicked. “When someone stands up and performs like Johnno today, then you’ve got a great chance. “Johnno needs to play for a team that keeps the ball, gives him the ball at the right time, gives him the space to break. “It’s not like you go into any system and just play. “We were trying, it wasn’t easy at first, but in the last two or three weeks when we’ve been passing better and the team has been more solid, that’s given him the freedom to perform. “He’s got the quality to go and make a difference.” Sunderland took a 2-0 lead into half-time thanks to Johnson’s free-kick and a deflected finish from South Korean Ki Sung-yueng. Fulham responded through Steve Sidwell’s header, but Ki teed up Johnson’s second before the Sunderland-born winger converted a late penalty. Delighted Poyet said Johnson’s passionate celebration for his first goal indicates how driven his midfielder has become about sustaining top form. “He didn’t score in the cup, then we switched things round, so it’s character. I like it,” said Poyet. “You give him options, you try your best to put him in the right positions, but at the end of the day, it’s the player. “I think he’s a terrific lad, and you can only imagine how difficult it is when you change teams. “You come in for a reason from a top team and you want to make a difference, and for whatever reason it doesn’t work. “It’s easy to criticise and it’s natural, but for the person, the player, it’s sad. “So he was desperate to do something special, and what a day today.” Sunderland’s third win in six days carried them above Crystal Palace to 19th in the league standings. Poyet hopes that moral-boosting shift will allow him to attract a higher calibre of recruit in the January transfer window. “I’ve been watching the table every two minutes,” he said. “It’s not nice at the bottom, let me tell you. “It’s going to be tense, but at least we are coming from the bottom so we’re going the right way. “If you call me at any stage of my career and you are bottom badly, I would think twice, it’s natural. “But the club, the way we’ve been playing now, it gives a player an option to make a decision.” Head coach Rene Meulensteen admitted Fulham will not drag themselves out of their relegation fight if they keep leaking goals. Fulham have now conceded 46 goals in 21 league matches, more than any other side. “You just can’t make progress doing that, not at all,” he said. “We were quite in control early on and then we didn’t convert those chances, from (Dimitar) Berbatov and (Adel) Taarabt. “We gave ourselves a mountain to climb. “These are the games you need to win; simple. “Their third goal was the defining moment, and credit to them for that. “We’ve got to get conceding those goals out of our system.” Johnson’s first professional hat-trick lifted Sunderland off the foot of the league table as the Black Cats thumped Fulham 4-1 at Craven Cottage. Poyet admitted he will push Johnson’s England case as a potential World Cup replacement for injured Arsenal winger Theo Walcott. last_img read more

McGregor set to leave hospital

first_img “But we’ve got to make sure we do the right thing by him and make sure that he recovers from a really nasty injury.” McGregor has been told he is out for the rest of the season but has told Bruce he still has an eye on playing in the FA Cup final if Hull beat Sheffield United in the semi-finals. Bruce added: “Typical Allan, the doctors say that he’s going to be out for six weeks and he said to me on the phone, ‘Yes, but the final is seven weeks’ away’. “I’m sure he’ll be doing everything he possibly can to get himself back.” Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor is due to be released from hospital at the weekend, more than a week after suffering kidney damage against West Ham. Press Associationcenter_img The Scotland international was injured after colliding with Mohamed Diame on March 26 – he was sent off before but the red card was later overturned. Tigers boss Steve Bruce said: “We’re hoping that he comes out of hospital at the weekend. He’s out of the high dependency unit and things have gone as well as they could have for him in the circumstances, but it shows you what type of injury it is with him still being in hospital 10 days later. last_img read more

Rosberg stuns F1 with retirement bombshell

first_imgBy Alan BaldwinLONDON, England (Reuters) – Nico Rosberg stunned Formula One yesterday with the shock announcement that he was retiring only days after achieving a lifetime ambition by winning his first world championship with Mercedes.“From the moment when the destiny of the title was in my own hands, the big pressure started and I began to think about ending my racing career if I became world champion,” the German said in a statement.“On Sunday morning in Abu Dhabi, I knew that it could be my last race and that feeling cleared my head before the start. I wanted to enjoy every part of the experience, knowing it might be the last time,” the 31-year-old added.The driver, who had given no previous indication of his intentions, said he had made the decision the day after the title race.Rosberg, who was due to attend the governing FIA’s gala prize-giving in Vienna later yesterday along with teammate and triple world champion Lewis Hamilton, did not say what he planned to do next.He will leave with a record of 23 wins in 206 races – putting him equal 12th on the all-time lists with Brazilian triple champion Nelson Piquet – and as only the second son of a champion to take the title.His Finnish father Keke was champion with Williams in 1982.Nico Rosberg was also the first German driver to win the Formula One title with a German car and team, and now becomes the first champion to walk away without defending the title since Frenchman Alain Prost in 1993.“Since 25 years in racing, it has been my dream, my ‘one thing’ to become Formula One World Champion. Through the hard work, the pain, the sacrifices, this has been my target. And now I’ve made it,” he said.“I have climbed my mountain, I am on the peak, so this feels right. My strongest emotion right now is deep gratitude to everybody who supported me to make that dream happen.”HAMILTON RIVALRYRosberg’s battles with Hamilton, his boyhood friend and rival in karting, have lit up the last couple of seasons – and provided plenty of headlines – and he said that too had taken its toll.“This season, I tell you, it was so damn tough,” said the man who also partnered seven-time champion Michael Schumacher, and beat him, in his early career at Mercedes.“I pushed like crazy in every area after the disappointments of the last two years; they fuelled my motivation to levels I had never experienced before. And of course that had an impact on the ones I love too.”The Monaco-based German married his childhood sweetheart Vivian in 2014 and they had a daughter last year. A devoted family man, Rosberg said his wife was the first person to know his decision.He acknowledged that his retirement had put his “racing family” in a difficult position, although Hamilton will now be an even stronger favourite to win his fourth title next season.Rivals also will see a dream vacancy that every driver on the starting grid would jump at if given the chance, Mercedes being the most dominant team in the sport with 19 wins in 21 races this season.Mercedes have won the drivers’ and constructors’ titles for the past three years in a row and will start next season, despite significant rule changes, as favourites again.Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff hailed a “brave move” and said it was “testament to the strength of his character”.“The clarity of his judgement meant I accepted his decision straightaway when he told me,” added the Austrian.Wolff said Mercedes would take time to evaluate their options and they will probably need it, given that the top drivers are already signed up by rivals.One who is still available is reserve driver Pascal Wehrlein, who has impressed at tail-enders Manor.The 22-year-old, who holds joint Mauritian and German nationality, was passed over, however, when Mercedes-powered Force India went looking for a replacement from the Mercedes stable for Nico Hulkenberg.Frenchman Esteban Ocon, 20, who is also a Mercedes-contracted driver, was chosen instead with Wolff describing him at the time as boasting the most impressive track record in junior formulae.That, however, is unlikely to stop others from thumbing through their contracts to see whether they can engineer a move.last_img read more
