He would become the first to compete in the marathon turf event on four separate occasions.On March 15, 2015, the now nine-year-old California-bred son of Game Plan out of the Urgent Request dam Ashley’s Folly won the San Luis Rey by 2 ½ lengths under Gary Stevens.Two years later, on March 25, 2017, he led before winding up third, with Stevens aboard again.On March 29, 2019, the old bay finished fifth with Kent Desormeaux up.After an absence of four months, trainer Peter Eurton brought Ashley back to the races at Golden Gate Fields last Nov. 30, finishing fifth in the Grade III Berkeley Handicap. On Jan. 18, he was fifth going five-wide in the Turf Classic for California-breds.“I didn’t know that,” Eurton said when informed this would be Ashleyluvssugar’s fourth start in the mile-and-one-half San Luis Rey. “We love this horse and he still has the desire to race, even though he may be missing a step now.“He had a three-quarter mile open gallop Friday on the training track because I knew I wouldn’t be able to work him again before the race, with the rain and everything. He absolutely still loves to be out there and he gets into his gallops with enthusiasm.“The longer races allow him to get into a better position in early parts of the race, which he enjoys. He can lay one-two and be more a defender of his position than a closer.“He’ll fight longer and doesn’t have to go as wide, either. He saves ground and at a mile and a half, he should be right up in it.”‘QUALITY QUARTET’ VIES FOR SANTA ANITA RIDING TITLEWith the influx of Italian Stallion Umberto Rispoli, Santa Anita’s race for riding honors at the Winter Meet has increased from the usual two or three combatants to a Quality Quartet of Joel Rosario, Abel Cedillo, Flavien Prat and the aforementioned 31-year-old two-time champion in his native Italy, Rispoli.Through Saturday, Prat held a 40-36 over runner-up Rosario, with Cedillo third at 35 and Rispoli fourth with 33.Agent Derek Lawson, who represents Prat, is among those enjoying the ride.“It’s an outstanding race,” Lawson was quick to point out. “With Rispoli in the mix, it’s a very competitive group of riders. Some will be going out of town (to ride three-year-olds with Triple Crown aspirations), and that will be a disadvantage to those seeking the riding title here, but as far as competition, it’s the best we’ve seen at Santa Anita in the past few years.“It’s a lot of fun, not only for the jockeys, but for the agents. We’re always trying to figure out who’s doing what and who’s riding where, but overall, with all the other stuff that’s going on in racing, it’s exciting.“This is something tangible we can look at and enjoy.”BAFFERT’S CHARLATAN HIGHLIGHTS SILENT SATURDAY AT SANTA ANITAWith apologies to Simon and Garfunkel, the Sound of Silence was indeed acutely surreal on Saturday at Santa Anita Park, as the legendary track went about the business of horse racing minus the public for the first time since its opening in December, 1934. With only credentialed media and licensed owners, trainers, jockeys, grooms and a smattering of track employees on hand, a total of eight races, including the Grade I Beholder Mile, were run without incident as the remainder of the nation’s sports and entertainment world for the most part, sat idle.The day got off to an uneventful start, as the Vladimir Cerin-trained Time for Suzzie reported home on top by a half length. Ridden by apprentice Jorge Velez, the 4-year-old California-bred filly by Time to Get Even got seven furlongs over a main track listed as “good” in 1:24.75 and paid $13.40 to win on the 1/ST BET and Xpressbetapps, as well as live streaming at www.santaanita.com/.With seven horses, a total of $260,400 was wagered on race one.“As far as training, nothing’s really changed for us except the weather,” said Cerin, in reference to intermittent rain that has fallen the past few days. “I’m amazed our Trackman (Dennis Moore) is actually better than the Weather Service. This morning, I didn’t think there was any chance it wouldn’t be raining. So far, so good.”Race two went to the Matt Chew-conditioned Silken Prince, who won by 4 ¼ lengths under Jose Valdivia, Jr., while getting 6 ½ furlongs on a track upgraded to “fast” in 1:16.31. Off at 5-1, he paid $13.60 to win.“It feels eerie, coming down the stretch, not to hear the crowd,” said Valdivia.One of five first time starters, the Mark Glatt-trained Big Sweep was heavily favored at even money in race three and won by 2 ¼ lengths while paying $4.00 to win. Ridden by Flavien Prat, she got six furlongs in 1:10.59.Race four, run during a light drizzle, went to the Hector Palma-trained Kadesh. Ridden by Abel Cedillo, he won by 4 ¼ lengths while getting one mile in 1:38.87 and paid $5.80 to win.Did this victory, garnered under quite unusual circumstances, hold any particular significance to Palma, who’s called the racetrack “home” for more than 60 years?“It’s just one more, my friend.”Flavien Prat got his second win on the day as he guided Adorably Sweet to a half length win in the fifth race. Trained by Mike Puype, the 4-year-old California-bred filly by Richard’s Kid got 6 ½ furlongs in 1:18.48. Off at 7-2, she paid $9.80 to win.Race six showcased the performance of the afternoon, as Bob Baffert’s Derby hopeful Charlatan demolished his competition by 10 ¼ lengths while getting one mile under Drayden Van Dyke in 1:36.24. The 1-5 favorite, he paid $2.60 to win and earned an incredible 106 Beyer Speed figure in the process.“Right now, we’re just glad they didn’t cancel (today’s races), cause we were going to go to Sunland Park,” said Baffert.The seventh race, the Grade I, $400,000 Beholder Mile, went Bo Hirsch’s homebred Ce Ce, who beat heavily favored Hard Not to Love by 3 ¼ lengths. Trained by Michael McCarthy and ridden by Victor Espinoza, Ce Ce paid $10.40 to win while garnering a 100 Beyer in her first stakes win.Saturday’s eighth and final race was taken by longshot Galwalksintoabar, which prompted track announcer Frank Mirahmadi to proclaim, “Galwalksintoabar is no joke…” Ridden by Van Dyke, who doubled on the day, she’s trained by Steve Miyadi and paid $21.20 to win.With no on-track wagering, Saturday’s total pari-mutuel handle was $6,523,828. Closed to the public until further notice due to local, state and national health decrees issued with regard to the coronavirus (COVID-19), wagering on Santa Anita’s races is available at some brick and mortar satellite locations, Santa Anita’s 1/ST BET and Xpressbet apps.Santa Anita’s races can be viewed live via its simulcast signal, online at santaanita.com, and on TVG, which is available via DirectTV 602, Spectrum/Time Warner 413, Dish 399 and other outlets.SANTA ANITA, GOLDEN GATE FIELDS TEMPORARILY CLOSED TO THE PUBLICWith the utmost regard for the safety and well-being of our customers and employees and in following the best available guidance from local and international health authorities, Santa Anita Park and Golden Gate Fields is temporarily closed to the public.Both tracks will continue live racing as scheduled with personnel licensed by the California Horse Racing Board in attendance which will provide our fans at home with the opportunity to stay connected to the action via our 1/ST BETand Xpressbet apps.We will continue to monitor the situation and will look forward to welcoming our fans and guests back again soon. FINISH LINES: Although speculation as to the scheduling of major events such as the Kentucky Derby is rampant, Bob Baffert’s Charlatan has the racing world abuzz in reaction to his huge 10 ¼ length allowance win yesterday. Making every pole a winning one, he got a flat mile in 1:36.24, earning an incredible 106 Beyer Speed figure in just his second start…Michael McCarthy’s Ce Ce, owned and bred by Bo Hirsch and out of his Grade I Del Mar Debutante-winning mare Miss Houdini, appears headed to great things, as she took yesterday’s Grade I Beholder Mile by 3 ¼ lengths, getting the distance in 1:37.33 while earning a 100 Beyer…Racing is set to resume on Friday, with first post time at 1 p.m. Entries will be taken on Tuesday and fans are encouraged to visit santaanita.com for updates regarding the upcoming racing schedule.LATEST CONTENT FROM XBTV: FEATURES:XBTV Sunday: What to Watch for at Santa Anita Park on March 15th, 2020Derby Prospect Charlatan Crushes Allowance Foes on March 14th, 2020WORKOUTS:Zest (Outside) and Hollywood Girl (Shirreffs) 03/09/20Storm The Hill (Outside) and Mirth (D’Amato) 03/09/20Oiseau de Guerre (O’Neill) 03/09/20Eight Rings (Inside) and Ax Man (Baffert) 03/09/20Warren’s Empress (Outside) and Down Home (Lewis) 03/08/20Charlatan (Outside) (Baffert) 03/08/20Nadal (Outside) (Baffert) 03/08/20 Bob Baffert7920171525%66%$1,801,952 Victor Espinoza5598916%47%$1,083,817 Eswan Flores503356%22%$117,303 Ryan Hanson1754229%65%$146,010 Carla Gaines3159516%61%$337,700 Tiago Pereira12117161914%43%$913,042 Craig Anthony Lewis43831219%53%$455,421 Mike Smith5398517%42%$1,141,722 Drayden Van Dyke11424201021%47%$1,586,601 Jeff Bonde2466225%58%$198,161 CHARLATAN HIGHLIGHTS SILENT SATURDAY Agapito Delgadillo686599%29%$358,021 OLD ASHLEY WOULD SET MARK IN SAN LUIS REY Steve Knapp49109620%51%$392,502 Aaron Gryder544387%28%$208,061 Mario Gutierrez861011812%34%$635,801 Abel Cedillo24335393214%44%$2,300,136 Mark Glatt76891611%43%$417,441 Jorge Velez16618173111%40%$931,519 Ruben Fuentes841112613%35%$541,441 Peter Miller70199527%47%$1,109,476 Assael Espinoza5867910%38%$218,912 JockeyMts1st2nd3rdWin%ITM%Money Won Richard Baltas10521171120%47%$1,458,822 John Sadler7812141415%51%$1,281,719 Geovanni Franco881412716%38%$714,680 Philip D’Amato8310121112%40%$745,236 Brian Koriner4384919%49%$344,122 Hector Palma3764316%35%$200,203 SANTA ANITA, GOLDEN GATE CLOSED TO PUBLIC Flavien Prat16840343124%63%$2,273,720 Mike Puype4274617%40%$362,800 J.

TOTTENHAM were lucky to hold on for a 2-2 draw against their bitter rivals Arsenal in the 199th North London derby at the Emirates today.And while Mauricio Pochettino will be pleased enough with the result, he will certainly be happier with his team’s performance compared to last weekend’s embarrassing home defeat to relegation candidates Newcastle.2 Christian Eriksen justified his return to the starting eleven with the opening goal against ArsenalCredit: Richard Pelham – The SunSpurs are ninth in the Premier League after the draw and the 3,000 away fans in the corner will at least be glad of the improved showing by their team.And here’s what William Pugh thought of the Lilywhites’ performances at their neighbour’s home.HUGO LLORIS – 5Stitched up Vertonghen in the first-half with a hospital pass which led to Rose’s booking and an attacking free-kick for Arsenal. Beaten at the near post for Arsenal’s first too. Made some good saves elsewhere but probably didn’t fill his defence with confidence.DANNY ROSE – 6Showed great commitment to block Pepe’s 22nd minute back post header which would have certainly made it 1-1. Decent enough second-half.TOBY ALDERWEIRELD – 5Solid. Nothing spectacular in a new-look back four.DAVINSON SANCHEZ – 5Filled in well enough at right-back given his side’s emergency situation in the position. Arsenal tried to exploit but he held firm on the whole.JAN VERTONGHEN – 5Same as his defensive partner. Did what he had to. Spurs fans will be glad to see him back in the fold.HARRY WINKS – 6Got up and down the pitch well. More effective in the first half. No huge complaints. Certainly better than his centre-midfield partner.2 Moussa Sissoko spurned a last-gasp chance in a thrilling draw at the EmiratesCredit: ReutersMOUSSA SISSOKO – 4Committed a lot of fouls and none really of the tactical kind. More like the kind where you are getting run around by the opponents and pull or kick them because you are tired.ERIK LAMELA – 6Quiet first ten minutes. Great run and shot for Spurs’ opening goal. Booked for a shirt pull in the first-half. Rightfully subbed as he was ineffective after half-time.CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN – 7Right place right time for the goal. Most of Spurs attacks went through him… as usual. Just does the simple things well and Spurs will hope he stays. Very impressed by his defensive work also.HEUNG-MIN SON – 7Looked lively and threatening in the first half. Focal point of all Spurs’ counter-attacks which was when they looked most dangerous. Curling effort to make it two on 18 minutes but denied by fantastic Leno save. Kept Arsenal defenders on their toes for entire second-half.HARRY KANE – 6Flick on to set Lamela away for the opening goal. Nailed penalty home with aplomb. Smashed one off the post on the hour mark which should have killed the game. Other than that… errr.SUBSDELE ALLI (on for Lamela, 59 mins) – 5Nothing of note. Will likely struggle for game time if Eriksen and Lo Celso are in front of him.Most Read in FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticGIOVANO LO CELSO (on for Son, 78) – 5Barely enough time to have an impact.

Crouch states that for a while he believed that I knew the secret of the success of the then promising Welsh extreme and that he tried to copy the method to get to perform just as well as Bale in Tottenham. “I saw Gareth run up and down in the Tottenham and shatter Maicon against Inter and I said to myself: ‘As it does?’. Then I started to notice and I didn’t go to the gym and I only ate beans with toast, so I started doing the same, but I guess some beans have more magic than others“, says the forward, retired last summer.Crouch’s method did not give him the best results but, to his surprise, the striker eventually found that Bale was not the only one who resorted to Magic beans. “Talk to Paul Scholes recently and I asked him what his pre-game meal was and he replied: “Beans with toast,” said a wonderful Crouch. Peter Crouch He was a companion of Gareth Bale in the ranks of Tottenham before one left to Stoke and the Welshman will end up in the Real Madrid. The English striker has granted an interview on FourFourTwo in which he reveals quite surprising details of his relationship with the white soccer player.

He turned to the visiting area and the Valencia tactic was reduced to that of the bad fighters, bow their heads while a shower of blows falls.Thus, at the insistence, came 1-0. De Molina after rejecting Jaume Mata’s shot. And the 2-0, of Molina after ridiculing the Alicante to the entire Valencian defense, especially Diakhaby and Paulista. The Azulón domain was pressing. Even did not appear. The others, more or less, either. It would come 3-0, from Mata, a play that portrayed Diakhaby’s neglect and that ended in a choteo within the area with Jaume dribbled and on the ground. They could be more goals, greater humiliation … For what? It was clear that Getafe, today, is far superior to Valencia. Goals1-0, 57 ‘: Jorge Molina, 2-0, 66 ‘: Jorge Molina, 3-0, 86 ‘: Bush In Getafe they seriously consider changing the name of their stadium to Coliseum Jorge Molina. The idea sprang from the fans a little over a year ago and the Alicante player has just given them reason. Molina was the executor of a Valencia that has become the worst enemy of Getafe but yesterday appeared in a major battle disguised as a cute kitten. Not an occasion, not a goal shot, nothing at all when the afternoon required manhood to play third place and part of the next Champions League. “You have to be more men!” Gabriel Paulista would later say.Valencia leaves Getafe red with shame, burned from impotence. He picked up a 3-0 as could be a sack of goals not to mediate Jaume and his countless stops. Someday his teammates can pay the goalkeeper how much they made him suffer in the Coliseum.Getafe erased Valencia to the point that Celades’ team did not throw between the three clubs in the whole match. Five minutes later, Jaume took the first shot. Of course, from Molina. In 18 ’, Molina again. This time brushing the pole. In 46 ’, always Molina, head combed a corner kick taken by Damián who was about to enter. The first approach of Valencia, which was not the occasion, was in 32 ’, a good change of Kondogbia game that Ferran cushioned lowering the ball. The young player saw the arrival of Maxi Gomez and left the ball ready to finish. He did it, but wrong. Against a defender of Getafe. It was the closest thing to a sign of existence that Valencia gave.By then goalkeeper Jaume was being the protagonist of the match against his will. In goal it was confirmed in a double stop that he did in 39 ’, first on Maksimovic’s shot and then on Cucurella’s shot. In both Jaume flew.Valencia asked for oxygen. He looked outdated. He was walking on the street of bitterness. At the break, the Celades team received the best news: I didn’t know how but I had arrived alive with 0-0. The Getafe, on the other hand, had reason to lament. The whole game had been his, all the occasions were his … In the first part the Getafe had made 11 shots. Valencia, only one and did not even go to the door.
