BREEDERS’ CUP CLASSIC PURSE RAISED TO $6 MILLION AND LONGINES TURF RAISED TO $4 MILLION

first_imgLEXINGTON, Ky. (June 13, 2016) – The Breeders’ Cup today announced purse increases for the Breeders’ Cup Classic and the Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf, starting with this year’s Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., on November 4-5. The Classic, run at 1 ¼ miles on the main track for 3-year-olds and older, will now carry a total guaranteed purse of $6 million and the Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf, run at 1 ½ miles for 3-year-olds and up, will  now have a purse of $4 million.Total purses and awards for the 2016 Breeders’ Cup, which includes 13 grade one races held over two days, will be a record $28 million.This will be the first purse increases on any of the Breeders’ Cup races since 2006. From 2006 through 2015 the Breeders’ Cup Classic was contested for a purse of $5 million and the Turf carried a $3 million purse.  In 2007, the Breeders’ Cup expanded to a two-day event and added three races to the card but purses for the existing Championship races remained the same.First place prize for this year’s Classic will be $3,300,000, and the first place prize for the Turf will be $2,200,000.The purse increases to both races were approved by the Breeders’ Cup Board of Directors in February.In addition to the increase in purses, Breeders’ Cup will now pay down to the 8th finish position on every Championship race, increasing the number of horses who receive purse distributions from 40% of starters to 65%.  Every international starter will receive $40,000 as a shipping stipend, and North American starters stabled outside of California will receive $10,000.In January, the International Federation of Horse Racing Authorities (IFHA) published its Longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings of the top 100 group1/grade 1 races based upon ratings averages over the past three years (2013-2015). The Breeders’ Cup Classic (124.33) was rated the world’s second highest race, trailing only the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (125.75) for the top spot. The Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf (122.50) was rated the world’s fourth highest race, just slightly behind the No. 3 slotted Juddmonte International Stakes (122.67).Last year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky., was won by the brilliant American Pharoah, who became North America’s first Grand Slam winner, taking the three Triple Crown races of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes, and the Classic in the same year. The 2015 Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf featured a thrilling international duel, as the determined filly Found (IRE), upset Golden Horn (GB), the European Horse of the Year, by a half-length.“In our efforts  to provide our horsemen and fans with the best product in international racing, we are pleased to announce purse increases for both the Classic and the Longines Turf beginning with this year’s event at Santa Anita,” said Craig Fravel, Breeders’ Cup President and CEO. “Since our inception, one of the founding principles of the Breeders’ Cup has been to offer unprecedented purses on our races as incentive to keep the stars of our sport on the track and extend their racing careers. While the Classic and the Turf mark our first purse increases to individual races since 2006, our goal is to continue to find ways to raise purse levels on our races in the future.”Following Saturday’s Belmont Stakes, the Breeders’ Cup Challenge season gets into full swing for the second half of the year with a bevy of stars pointing to the $6 million Classic. Among them are the three Triple Crown race winners Nyquist (Kentucky Derby), Exaggerator (Preakness) and Creator (Belmont). The older runners are led by California Chrome, the 2014 Kentucky Derby and 2016 Dubai World Cup winner; Beholder, the two-time Breeders’ Cup champion and three-time Eclipse Award winning mare, and Frosted, who was a dominant  winner of Saturday’s Metropolitan Handicap at Belmont.The first of seven Breeders’ Cup Challenge series automatic qualifying races for the Classic begins this Saturday at Churchill Downs with the Stephen Foster Handicap. Effinex, runner-up to last year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic winner to American Pharoah, is among those expected to start.On June 25, the NBC Sports Group “Breeders’ Cup Challenge Win and You’re In Series, presented by Lanes’ End Farm and America’s Best Racing” continues its season of nine telecasts from the nation’s premier tracks with the $500,000 Gold Cup at Santa Anita (NBCSN, 8-9 p.m. ET) for the second “Win and You’re In” berth into the Classic.Contact: Jim Gluckson, Breeders’ Cup, 212-230-9512 $28 Million in Purses and Awards for 2016 World Championships at Santa Anitalast_img read more

My Transformation

first_imgThis is the story of my transformation:I’ve been transformed from normal to newborn to new man, it’s my emancipation. From slave to liberator, the blood of the Savior pressed upon me and paved a new path to freedom – I shook “The Man’s” plantation.I gave it all up for a just cause just because, just as Christ gave His life and paid the price for a chosen nation,He chose me to be a soldier in this war against the flesh and the spirit – until it’s over I’ll give my best, not for merit or standing ovation.See, I was wrong for going off and on, weak and torn, full of sin,Wavering to and fro in the wind, raging like an ocean;Now uplifted from the lowly, marching slowly to glory – I’m telling you a true story but no, this isn’t my promotion.It’s the Most High working thru Messiah, working thru me.I’m being tried in the fiery furnace of adversity;The wicked may persecute, but that which I seek is my Father’s will, love, law, wisdom and intimate mercy.With His Hands, He formed me from clay to gold to an eternally living soul, to perfectly fit in His mold before His oven turns cold. I look on as He holds in His power the globe, and measures the deeds of all the righteous and the noise of His foes;He holds in His balance all the woes of the meek and the commotion in the streets as tares are severed from wheat.He doesn’t cultivate fear – this road is a challenge for those who truly seek a companion or advocacy, but many seeds get entangled in thorns or dry up in the heat.But I’m embalmed by the earth that’s under my feet; His Word is the pasture where I can rest and freely graze like a sheep.I extend from the roots of this powerful tree; in my palms are the fruits of His knowledge and peace.And that warm bread of life is what I live on; it’s my food, fire and sword, a handy shield that I slip on to stop wicked darts.Yes, it consumes, quenches, and pours salvation upon sickened hearts and hordes of dry bones in the valley of Kidron that lie among rocks…Our people call themselves “following God”, but follow doctrines that got them stuck in boxes, not knowing who they are, or were, and will be in the end when Messiah again calls Jacob His friend;They will be the recompense if they truly repent and put off the filthy garments that were given to them.But first they must go before Him and atone for their sins, make amends, and return to His holy laws and  commandments.And now it’s time for new robes, new minds, and new roles;We all play a different part, but have the ultimate goal. Seeing all the signs and waking up from your doze requires willingness and patience to transform as a whole.So…how do we go, and where do we stand? Is there map in the sand to guide us back to our land?No…but there’s a light in our hearts to shine bright in our inner parts so we can project it outwardly and be lamps in the dark.Though this light is transparent, it needs to cleave through the evil and can’t be hid under bushel as to not reach all of our people. This way of life is inherent as is our conscience and bearing, or like the fog that disperses when you come into a clearing,Where the lion is sleeping but he’s not in a jungle – and though it’s not night time, instead of roaring, he mumblesBut when it is game time, he better hope he don’t stumble, or that the crown which he runs for is not solely corruptible.We run a race for that which is truly eternal, and will guide us to light;So with temperance, subjection and humility, we do fight, avoiding with all prudence the infinite grip of inferno.And as always, we give the Father all praise for His salvation immortal, and heed His righteous ways ’cause angels write our journals;They take our thoughts, prayers, and all conceptions internal, and He intercepts and discerns if we are worthy and faithful.So when the Master returns, we’ll have a place at His table and a seat at His feast!We must invest as we’re able, with all the gifts we are given:So that through faith, we’re patient and grateful, because He’s made His petition for us to be sealed in His book of life,Where our names are forever written, because, before being revealed in this earthly cradle, He knew us; for by Him, we were already labeled.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

India spank Harambee Stars in Mumbai

first_imgStars will now need to win their final round-robin match against Chinese Taipei on Friday to book a slot in Sunday’s final after starting off their campaign with a 2-1 win over New Zealand on Saturday.India on the other hand started off with a 5-0 thrashing of Chinese Taipei.It was a difficult outing for Sebastien Migne’s charges who were forced to play long balls because of the soggy nature of the pitch and they had few chances to score.The game opened up in the second half and Kenya almost had the opener in the 49th minute when Ovella Ochieng burst through the centre of the Indian defence but could only shoot inches wide of the goal.Harambee Stars players celebrate one of their goals during their Heroes InterContinental Cup match against New Zealand at the Mumbai Arena on June 2, 2018. PHOTO/Indian Football AssociationBut the Indians got the much needed opener in the 68th minute after they were awarded a penalty after Chhetri was hacked inside the box by Michael Kibwage. The skipper stepped up to score.Two minutes later, the Indians were 2-0 up when Lalpekhlua lit up the full to capacity arena with a wonderful shot from range that found keeper Matasi flat footed.Kenya tried to push in for an equalizer attempting to use Piston Mutamba’s height in attack but they couldn’t break the backline. Substitute Mark Makwatta came close with a shot from range but the Indian keeper saved.Chhetri then drove the final nail into Kenya’s coffin with a beauty of a goal, chipping the ball over Matasi after India launched a counter attack.Migne had made only one change from the team that won on Saturday, bringing in Dennis Odhiambo for Makwatta. The tactician was forced into a change pre-match after left back Eric Ouma suffered an injury during warm up and was replaced by Bolton Omwenga.Meanwhile, the stadium was full to capacity after captain Sunil Chhetri’s emotional plea for fans to support the team after barely 2,500 people turned up to watch them play against Chinese Taipei.Chhetri’s heartfelt appeal — backed by India’s cricket heroes Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar — went viral on social media, prompting fans to shell out for tickets.Every seat in the 15,000-capacity Mumbai Football Arena was quickly sold with one fan buying more than 1,000 tickets for the Intercontinental Cup game.Chhetri’s plea came after India thrashed Taiwan 5-0 in front of just 2,569 people in the Mumbai stadium on Friday.The disheartened Chhetri, who scored a hat-trick in the match, said in a Twitter video: “To everyone who has lost hope in Indian football I request you to come and watch us in the stadiums.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000India and Kenya players walk off the pitch at half time during their Heroes InterContinental Cup at the Mumbai Arena on June 4, 2018.
