CORDIALITY CONTROLS TEMPO AND TAKES $100,000 FRAN’S VALENTINE STAKES BY 1 ¼ LENGTHS UNDER TALAMO; TRAINED BY YAKTEEN, SHE GETS ONE MILE ON TURF IN 1:34.70RACE IS PART OF LUCRATIVE GOLDEN STATE SERIES FOR CALIFORNIA-BRED OR SIRED HORSESARCADIA, Calif. (May 12, 2019)–Breaking from the rail, trainer Tim Yakteen’s Cordiality made an easy lead and proceeded to take eight pursuers on a merry chase en route to registering a 1 ¼ length victory in Sunday’s $100,000 Fran’s Valentine Stakes at Santa Anita. Ridden by Joe Talamo and owned by Donnie Crevier, the 6-year-old California-bred mare by Papa Clem got a flat mile on turf in 1:34.70.“When I got back, I was surprised to see those fast fractions,” said Talamo. “Her ears were up and she was doing it so easy. The plan going in was to sit second, third or fourth, but when nobody went, we inherited the lead by accident. When the four (runner-up Queen Bee to You) came to her, I got a little concerned, but when I asked her turning for home, she kicked on and was very impressive.”Most recently fifth, beaten seven lengths in the Grade II Royal Heroine Stakes at one mile on turf here April 6, Cordiality, who is out of the Unusual Heat mare Warmth, was off as the 5-2 second choice in the field of nine California-bred or sired fillies and mares and paid $7.00, $4.40 and $3.20.“We had a plan for her when we claimed her (two starts back for $62,500 on Feb. 18), we just didn’t have a prep race,” said Yakteen. “So that’s why we had to run against those tough mares in her last race, but it worked out well for us.“The 46 and two (fifths, for a half mile) didn’t concern me, but when she didn’t kick away at the quarter pole, I thought they were going to swamp her…But she showed her heart and determination, she’s a gritty mare.”With the winner’s share of $60,000, Cordiality boosted her earnings to $502,835. A winner of last year’s Fran’s Valentine when trained by Mark Glatt, she now has three lifetime stakes wins, all versus state-breds and an overall mark of 29-10-7-3.Ridden by Ruben Fuentes, Queen Bee to You, who was scratched out yesterday’s Grade III Santa Barbara Stakes, pursued the winner throughout and kept to her task in game fashion late, holding second by 1 ¼ lengths over Pulpit Rider.Off at 14-1, Queen Bee to You paid $10.20 and $5.40.Pulpit Rider, who had one horse beat going into the Club House turn, finished up well to be third by 1 ½ lengths over 9-5 favorite Gypsy Blu. Ridden by Aaron Gryder, Pulpit Rider was off at 5-1 and paid $3.40 to show.Fractions on the race were 22.62, 46.16, 1:10.35 and 1:22.38.Named for the late Earl Schieb’s multiple graded stakes winning homebred daughter of Saros, the Fran’s Valentine is part of the lucrative Golden State Series which is sponsored by the CTBA.

The International Board (IB), the regulator of the Laws of the Game, remember in a circular that I have sent to the 209 federations that make up the FIFA what “VAR is a tool that should only be used to correct clear, obvious and manifest errors.” The IFAB Secretary General, Lukas Brud, thus came to the passage of criticism of the video arbitration system that are getting worse in The league and in the Premier. “The mistakes come many times for trying to snoop too much in the cameras. We all know you can be out of play for a single millimeter, but if you need to dig through seven and eight cameras to see it, bad. If it takes several minutes to study whether or not there was an orsay the referee’s first decision must be maintained “he added. The IB will meet in Belfast Saturday, February 29. It will study whether to accept or reject the proposals of the UEFA, which asks to introduce a margin of error of fifteen centimeters in the offside since, in the opinion of Ceferin, “The placement of the lines that are displayed on the screens and that determine the positions of the players are subjective.” “It can’t be that you fall out of play because you have a foot greater than the defense or because you have a bigger nose”, explained the president of UEFA. But it is difficult for the IB to change the way VAR is applied because “There is a tool that must be used correctly, and that does not include analyzing errors that are not very obvious.”Although in the IB they are especially concerned with the controversy that the offside is throwing, also the hands in the area are controversial. Both issues will be discussed at the February meeting in North Ireland, but while the date arrives the regulators have gone out of the last controversies to stop what is already being a generalized current against the VAR, with contrary opinions among some of the great technicians of Europe, how Guardiola or Klopp.
“When he returned he continued with the recovery, trying to get in shape. I have not seen much of him, because he has barely trained a week or ten days with us. I have heard these rumors about him but I have nothing to comment,” said the Spanish coach . “He has to get fit and fight for his position. After that I will choose the best players that I create for the team”.In recent days, the Spanish press has reported that Ceballos would like to cut off his assignment in Arsenal to have more minutes ahead of the next Eurocup.His situation in the English team has not been simple. After a good start to the campaign, a muscle injury took him two months out of the competition. In recent games, with Arteta already in charge, he hasn’t played a minute. Mikel Arteta, Arsenal coach, declined to comment on the rumors that put Dani Ceballos out of Arsenal in this winter market and asked him to fight for his position. “I’ve talked to him”Arteta responded when asked about the situation of Ceballos in the team. “When I arrived at the club he was not here, he was recovering from his injury in Madrid for a month”He continued.
As reported by SER chain in the program The spar this Tuesday, Ivan Rakitic could also leave Barcelona in this winter market. Barca technicians work on its sale, which could be closed if the parties agree with the offer that arrives. The Rakitic case is extending over time. A year and a half ago, the Croatian flirted with his departure. In summer of 2018, after the World Cup, with leaving for Paris Saint Germain. The player continued after starting the promise of the president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, that the contract would improve, something that finally did not happen. This last summer was close to Inter and Juventus. The arrival of De Jong left him in an exhibition situation, but finally his departure did not materialize and, after months without counting for Valverde, he ended up entering the Txingurri’s plans. At the limit of the closing of the market, the SER informed that its possible march is back on the table, a sign that, when it materializes, Rakitic is already at the end of a cycle at Barça and, possibly, is not one hundred percent focused on the reality of the team with so much noise around him for a long time.Inter and Juventus have been behind their services for months. For the offer to be finalized, however, Barça and the player should agree. The Catalan club has hung the transfer sign, but wants a good amount of money to say yes to the transfer. At Barça since 2014, Rakitic’s performance has been simply spectacular. In recent months, however, they have been difficult for the player. His role has fallen and his level, too.
Hobby: “We apologize, we are all tremendously sad but it’s time to get up quickly.”Knock: “It’s a hard blow, without a doubt. We were very excited but we have to get up.” Julen Lopetegui, Sevilla coach, appeared before the media after the bulky defeat of the Spanish team in the round of the Copa del Rey against Mirandés by 3 to 1. Changes: “When three changes are made it is because the first one who was wrong is the coach. We tried to score as soon as we started in the second half but everything was against. The goal we expected did not come and we have been eliminated by a good team that was superior “. Explanation: “We have been prisoners of the bad start that we had and that they took advantage to get ahead. In this format a bad game leads you to be eliminated. The first goal was key. It gave them a lot of energy and generated doubts. When you have those situations at the beginning of the game everything turns against “.
In this way, the team led by Lucien Favre covers his back in the center of the field before the departure of Julian Weigl to Benfica. Can, formed in the lower categories of Bayern Munich, returns to the Bundesliga after leaving five and a half years ago to Liverpool, a club he left in 2018 to join Juve. The main reason for his escape from Turin was the decision after not being included in the current list of the Vecchia Signora to play Champions. Can felt belittled and reproached the Nerazzurri for not “being honest” with him.Borussia did not think twice and went with everything for the 26-year-old. Emre Can is the second bombshell of Borussia Dortmund in a winter market that puts him again as a serious candidate for the salad bowl in the Bundesliga. After acquiring the services of Erling Haaland, a goal scorer of the RB Salzburg who has already scored five goals in his two appearances as a yellow-gold, the Borusser team reinforced the core with the incorporation of the German international from Juventus. The Turkish-German player arrives on loan until the end of the season with a mandatory purchase option and a contract until 2022 if certain objectives are met. The operation will amount to a total of 25 million, two more than he entered by the recent march of Paco Alcácer al Villarreal. “Emre Can is a German international who, regardless of the drawing on the pitch, can occupy several positions, both in defense and in the center of the field. He is a player who, in addition to having good physical and technical characteristics, will provide a highly developed competitive gene, “Dortmund sports director Michael Zorc was quoted as saying in the official statement issued by the BVB. In addition to returning to the foreground on the grass, Can intends to take advantage of the rest of the season to convince the German coach Joachim Löw when making his list to play the European Championship this summer.
6 Paul Pogba has not played an official match with the Manchester United shirt since 2019. During this course it has only been seen eight times when he managed to give two goal passes but not score. He has always preferred to remain in the shade and be his representative, Mino Raiola, who manages his career in terms of signings. And lately, given the bad streak of the team, injuries and criticism of the Frenchman, the expizzero has hinted that the player wanted to go to the Juventus because I was very alone, since the template “It would ruin Pelé or Maradona”, something that logically did not like anything in Old trafford. But as he explains Daily Mail, the French would have drastically changed their minds with the arrival of Bruno Fernandes, that seems to have given a face lift to the team that the Nigerian, Odion IghaloHe has also contributed three goals in seven games. The attitude of the Portuguese, who seemed to come to occupy the position of the Frenchman, precisely seems to have been the cause of Pogba having rethought his contract, which expires in 2021 or 2022 if the club exercises its option to add an additional year . The British newspaper says it would even value renew and dare to give figures: would go from charging 18 million euros to receive about 24 million. Premier League* Data updated as of March 11, 2020 Eight games have served the Portuguese to score three goals, distribute three assists, throw the team behind and win the fans sending silence Pep Guardiola. Pogba has been impressed by the impact he has had on his coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and believes that with some reinforcement in summer, great things can be done in the future. Of course, it would be decisive to know whether or not your club gets into the next Champions League, so the decision is not final.The passage of time and injuries have damaged the image of Pogba, causing Real Madrid Y Barcelona They no longer seem so interested. The Juventus Keep an eye out, but having lost the cartel, it is possible that the Italians did not offer as much as Manchester United would expect, which would impede their departure if a good offer does not arrive. We will have to wait to hear what Paul Pogba says (or perhaps to the next statements of his representative) to see if he is serious, although it is true that since Bruno Fernandes arrived, the team has not lost any game.
