ARCADIA, Calif. (June 4, 2016)–There is simply no stopping the mighty Beholder. With three Eclipse Awards and a pair of Breeders’ Cup victories, she is already considered one the game’s all-time great distaffers. Saturday’s Grade I, $400,000 Vanity Mile provided yet another testament to her greatness as she sat just off a dawdling first quarter mile of 25.03 and smoked home under Gary Stevens to win by 1 ½ measured lengths while getting the distance in 1:35.97.In the care of trainer Richard Mandella for more than four years now, the 6-year-old mare by Henny Hughes registered her 10th Grade I victory and her 17th win from 22 overall starts. Owned by B. Wayne Hughes’ Spendthrift Farm, LLC, she won for the eighth consecutive time and is now an incredible 13 for 14 at Santa Anita, where she hopes to take on the boys in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic in November.“If someone told me before the race that we would go in 25 for the first quarter, I would say ‘No way,’” said Stevens, who has now won 11 races in 12 tries with the sure-to-be first ballot Hall of Famer. “I thought we would go in sub 23, 45 and change for the second quarter and I thought the final time would be under 1:34. Twenty five is legit, 49 is legit, but I think that’s the fastest last three eighths I’ve ever run in my life and she was lovin’ every minute of it.“She’s like family to me. I don’t spend as much time with her as Richard does and everyone at the barn, but she’s very special to me. She’s the best thing I ever have ridden, or I ever will ride. I’m blessed to be on her back.”The prohibitive 1-5 favorite in a field of five fillies and mares three and up, Beholder paid $2.40, $2.10 and $2.10. (There was $791,272 bet on her to show, with the total show pool at $854,497, creating a minus pool of $160,051).“I’ve had a lot of great horses, but not like this,” said Hughes, who following Beholder’s last win stated that she would run again at age seven if “everything is perfect.” “I don’t think this will ever happen to me again…She’s definitely the best horse I’ve ever owned, maybe the best horse anyone has ever owned. She’s better this year than she was last year. She bigger, stronger and faster.”The winner versus males of the Grade I Pacific Classic last summer, Hughes said that Beholder would remain in Southern California for the rest of the year.“The Breeders’ Cup (at Santa Anita) in November is the main goal,” he said. “The Pacific Classic is our intention right now but I don’t know the dates of everything. I’m just happy with her winning a race. Even though I take credit for it, Richard makes all the decisions.”In a performance that likely would have won the Vanity in many years, Stellar Wind, trainer John Sadler’s Eclipse Award winning 3-year-old Filly from 2015, ran a huge second in her 4-year-old debut under Victor Espinoza. Full of run while a joint third at the rail passing the five furlong marker, Stellar Wind angled three-wide, just outside of Beholder leaving the quarter pole and outran longshot Finest City by three quarters of a length for the place.Off at 3-1, Stellar Wind paid $2.20 and $2.10.Ridden by Tyler Baze, Finest City, who sat a close third most of the trip, finished 2 ¼ lengths in front of early pacesetter Lost Bus. Off at 12-1, Finest City paid $2.40 to show.Fractions on the race were 25.03, 49.31, 1:12.53 and 1:23.99.Racing resumes on Sunday at Santa Anita with first post time for a nine-race card at 2 p.m. Admission gates open at 11:30 a.m.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest National Corn Growers Association President Lynn Chrisp urged U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue to consider changes to the Market Facilitation Program (MFP) ahead of the second round of payments.In a letter to Perdue, Chrisp said that he continues to hear from farmers who are disappointed in USDA’s approach to calculating the first round of MFP payments because it was too narrow in scope and did not capture the real-time impacts of trade disruptions on our markets.Chrisp asked Perdue to add ethanol and distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) to the calculation of damages for corn. Using USDA’s methodology, gross trade damages for ethanol and DDGS amounts to $254 million, which was not accounted for in the first MFP payments. Chrisp also asked the Secretary to allow farmers who suffer production losses from disasters to use an alternative to 2018 production for their MFP calculation. This would ensure farmers suffering from drought, hurricane-related losses or other natural disasters would not be penalized twice.Text of the letter is below:Dear Secretary Perdue,On behalf of the more than 40,000 National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) members and the more than 300,000 corn farmers across the nation, I am writing to ask the U.S. Department of Agriculture to consider changes to its Market Facilitation Program (MFP) for the second tranche of payments, planned for December 2018.During the development of the Department’s trade mitigation plan, NCGA provided USDA and the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) with analysis of losses to corn farmers resulting from trade disputes with China and the European Union. This information was based on a study, conducted by Integrated Financial Analytics and Research (IFAR), that found an average decline in the price of corn of $0.44/bu as a result of trade tariffs, amounting to a $6.3 billion loss to corn farmers.NCGA requested that USDA’s trade mitigation efforts compensate commodities proportionate to their lost revenue and that farmers suffering production losses due to natural disasters be able to use an alternative method of calculating their payments.At the same time, NCGA called on the Trump Administration to take immediate actions to strengthen market demand for farmers. These included, resolving ongoing trade disputes, securing existing and new trade agreements, and providing parity for ethanol blends above 10 percent.NCGA is pleased that the Trump Administration has made progress on several of these priorities, including reaching a trade agreement with Mexico and Canada, moving forward with trade negotiations with Japan, and directing EPA to provide RVP parity. We appreciate the strong role you have played in working with the President to deliver on these priorities.These are critical developments, but the economic benefits will take some time to materialize, and corn farmers are struggling now. I continue to hear from farmers who are disappointed in USDA’s approach to calculating the first round of MFP payments because it was too narrow in scope and did not capture the real-time impacts of trade disruptions on our markets.Given that there is still significant uncertainty in the farm economy and that corn prices are still being impacted by ongoing disputes with China and the EU, NCGA is asking USDA for the following modifications in its calculation of the second tranche of MFP payments:Add ethanol and distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) to the calculation of damages for corn. U.S. corn farmers have seen value-added corn products grow as an important share of our global exports (see attached graphic). In 2017, according to FAS data, the United States exported $185 million worth of ethanol and $223 million worth of DDGS (for a combined value of $408 million in exports) to China and the European Union. Based on the Office of the Chief Economist’s MFP methodology, gross trade damages for ethanol and DDGS amounts to $254 million that was not accounted for in the first tranche of MFP payments.Allow farmers who suffer production losses from disasters to use an alternative to 2018 production for their MFP calculations. This programmatic modification would ensure that farmers in Kansas, Missouri and Texas, who are suffering from drought, and farmers in the Southeast, who are suffering losses from Hurricane Michael, would not be penalized twice. It is also important that farmers be allowed to use RMA production records in MFP. Thank you, Mr. Secretary, and your staff, for continuing this dialogue with NCGA. I know that we share the goal of ensuring that MFP provides farmers with much-needed relief in a way that is equitable and effective. I believe that the modifications I have outlined in this letter will get us closer to that goal and urge you to give this request serious consideration.Sincerely,Lynn Chrisp, PresidentNational Corn Growers Association
Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netLyceum’s historic 18-0 sweep of the NCAA Season 93 eliminations almost didn’t become a reality after referee Edmar Avis’ call late in the first overtime.After CJ Perez gave the Pirates a 97-96 lead with a gutsy drive with 3.4 seconds to spare, Robert Bolick desperately tried to fish for foul in the last 1.5 ticks, something that the official numbered 16 willingly gave as he whistled Jaycee Marcelino for a foul.ADVERTISEMENT “Mistakes will always be there. But what I can say is the referees really tried their best. If I will rate it, you already saw it and you can base it on what you saw, I’m happy with the way they called it,” Cristobal said.“I will not entertain that anymore. As far as the referees are concerned, we’ll always go on different ways. They will judge it according to what they saw and they will always call for what is good and right for the game.”Lyceum coach Topex Robinson also didn’t let the errant call affect his team’s psyche late in the game.“I trust coach Bai a lot. They’re also people who make mistakes. I told my players to just keep on playing. They don’t want to be in that situation also, and we honor them also. We know that they’re gonna make mistakes and it’s not a fault of their own. I told them that instead of making the referees as an excuse, we have to find a way. We have to find a way and we have to really, really grind it with them,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.

Manchester United De Gea: It’s a dream to be at Manchester United Stephen Darwin Last updated 2 years ago 15:25 9/4/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Manchester United David de Gea Premier League The Spain goalkeeper, who has consistently been linked with a move to Real Madrid, insists he is proud of the high praise that has been coming his way David De Gea insists that it is a dream to be a Manchester United player, despite constantly being linked with a switch to Real Madrid.Despite a difficult start to his United career following his switch from Atletico Madrid back in 2011, De Gea has flourished at Old Trafford and is considered one of the best goalkeepers in world football.Red Devils 9/4 for PL title Article continues below Editors’ Picks Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina He did, however, look all set for a return to Madrid to join Real in 2015, although issues over the completion of paperwork on deadline day scuppered that move and he remained in Manchester.De Gea signed a new deal at Old Trafford soon after that ties him to the club until 2019 and, despite the rumours of a big-money transfer to Zinedine Zidane’s side refusing to go away, he is adamant it remains a dream to play for United.When asked about the widespread praise he has received for his performances, De Gea told MUTV: “Of course, you feel really proud when people think this about you. “It’s really good, but I like to keep my focus, keep working hard and doing my best. To be fair, when you are really young, you don’t think about the future too much, you just want to play with your friends.”When you get older, you start to dream about being there, about being at a top team, so of course it’s a dream to be at a team like Manchester United.”De Gea also discussed how he got into football and, when asked when he knew he was going to be a top goalkeeper, he added: “It’s difficult. I don’t know. I never thought that when I was young.”Maybe when I was 15 or 16 years old, I started feeling better, thinking that I could play at a high level. At the same time, I was also playing tennis and things like that, but I was always better at football. I played some basketball too, but football is what I love.”

Shaun King Crab LegsThursday night, former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, posted an Instagram photo of himself celebrating his No. 1 selection in the NFL Draft with a plate full of crab legs. Normally, such a photo wouldn’t be newsworthy – but given the fact that Winston was caught shoplifting crab legs from a Tallahassee Publix last April, it didn’t go unnoticed. Winston, who was criticized heavily for the post, eventually took it down, reportedly at the request of his new employer.Former NFL quarterback Shaun King, who is dialed into the football scene in northern Florida, has provided a bit of backstory on the photo Friday morning. He says that the crab legs were a gift from Captain Keith Colburn of The Deadliest Catch after Winston helped auction off a king crab at Mike Alstott’s charity auction earlier this year. He’s blasting people who have been critical of Winston.If people only knew how STUPID they sound killing this kid over that picture smdh— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015I was seated at the table right next to jameis at the mike alstott charity auction, when captain keith asked jameis to help him auction off— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015This huge king crab he had flown in for the event. Captain keith is from the deadliest catch show. I wasnt sure how jameis was gonna— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015Handle the request, but it didnt faze the young man at all he simply said ok sure, we r here to help the alstott foundation right.— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015That same captain keith in a gesture of thanks sent jameis and his family 25lbs of king crabs legs for his draft event last night.— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015Thats the backstory behind last nights picture for those of you who need to seriously have some self evaluation done— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015While the backstory may be a bit more heartwarming than many would have guessed, Winston likely still knew the reaction he’d get for the post. Whether it was worth it – well, that’s a question that the new Buccaneers quarterback can answer.
