Father Patrick a banker in Sir Howard Stakes

first_img LUANA has taken a drop in claiming level and should notch her third career win in Race Four. Running among $300,000 claimers on January 5, LUANA lost by a length to TRINI MAGIC after leading a 1300 metres race by two lengths, 200 metres from the finish line. The distance has now been reduced by 100 metres and LUANA’S pace will take her clear of rivals in the final 400 metres. 5. DRUMMER BOY The four-year-old gelding has been quietly fancied in most of his five races since he made his debut on July 14 last year. He was well-beaten in a 1400-metre race on September 29, but returned to produce an improved effort over 800 metres on October 3, last year. Trainer Patrick Lynch has now fitted ALEXA’S STAR with the tongue tie and figure-8 and called on experienced rider Trevor Simpson, so punters can expect a capital effort tomorrow. Quietly Fancied He has trained extremely well since then. On Sunday, he clocked 59.2 for 1000 metres when beating open-allowance stable companion SUPERLUMINAL on the exercise track. CUSTER, UNIVERSAL BOSS, and TOONA CILIATA are all very good horses but FATHER PATRICK looks destined for the top and will be hard to beat. 1. BRANDY 6. LALA DIVA 2. ALEXA’S STARcenter_img SUNRISE-SIX SELECTIONS 4. LUANA Take DRUMMER BOY to make it two wins in the Sunrise-Six for trainer DaCosta, while LALA DIVA gets the right distance and a strong jockey and should make no mistake in the sixth and final race of the Sunrise-Six. The third is the Sir Howard Stakes, one of the main prep races for the April 14 2000 Guineas. A field of seven colts and geldings will face the starter and the firm choice is trainer Ian Parsard’s FATHER PATRICK. A half brother to the former crack Grade One campaigner CRUCIAL APPEAL (both by the mare Late Appeal), FATHER PATRICK was very impressive when winning on debut earlier this year. BRANDY has lost to two vastly improved horses in her last two runs and should return to winning ways in the opening race of tomorrow’s Sunrise-Six at Caymanas Park. On December 29 last year, the Wayne DaCosta-trained four-year-old filly was fifth by four lengths to ADONIS over 1000 metres straight, then, on January 26, was just under three lengths second to GARRINCHA in a 1500-metre event. The distance for tomorrow’s race has been reduced to 1400 metres but BRANDY will still be very comfortable. In addition, tomorrow’s field is a bit weaker than those BRANDY has faced in recent months and she should have no difficulty in putting away her rivals. Race Two is a very knotty 1200-metre race for maiden four-year-olds and upwards and it has attracted a field of nine. ALEXA’S STAR looks the one to be on. 3. FATHER PATRICKlast_img read more

MLB suspended: Shapiro solution amid MLB Coronavirus shutdownThe MLB and the players’ union have to agree on a number of elements if the season relates to a shortened or cancelled campaign, Shapiro said. However, the MLB coronavirus shutdown has another key component regarding the pitchers. The pitchers have to stretch out and that process necessitates having to set a date for the start of the campaign. According to Shapiro, there’s no point for pitchers to prepare at this point with so much of the MLB news up in the air. Therefore, a four-week gap is a minimum set of time needed for pitchers to get into their groove.ALSO READ: IOC Has Sought Update On Health And Preparations Of Olympic-bound Athletes This Week: BatraWhen will MLB season start?The answer to the question “When will MLB season start?” still remains unclear.
