first_imgPeter Miller3896424%$531,386 Mark Glatt2054325%$167,776 SANTA ANITA STATISTICS COACHING LEGEND BOB BOYD MISSED AT SO CAL TRACKS            Southern California horse racing lost an ardent supporter on Wednesday, with the passing of longtime USC basketball coach Bob Boyd, who died of natural causes at age 84 in Palm Desert.A star player at USC in the early 1950s, Boyd coached the Trojans with distinction from 1967-79, amassing a record of 216-131. Through 1975, he went head to head with the legendary John Wooden at arch rival UCLA, and Boyd became the only coach to ever defeat “The Wizard of Westwood” twice on his home court, Pauley Pavilion.A regular attendee at Santa Anita, Hollywood and Del Mar during his playing and coaching days, Boyd was an annual visitor at Del Mar throughout his retirement and regularly sat with a spirited group of longtime friends such as fellow coaches Pete Newell (Cal), Jerry Tarkanian (UNLV, et al), Dan Ayala (assistant to Tarkanian), Ed Goorjian (Crescenta Valley High), and Gene Victor (Mt. SAC).Coach Boyd is survived by his sons, Bill, Jim and John, and 10 grandchildren. For all of those who knew him, he’ll never be forgotten. Elvis Trujillo5195418%$458,448 JockeyMts1st2nd3rdWin%Money Won Joseph Talamo535979%$409,508 (Current Through Sunday, Jan. 11 FINISH LINES: Yes, that is Chantal Sutherland galloping horses at Santa Anita these mornings, but she has no plans for a comeback. She studied interior design at the Interior Design Institute in Newport Beach and also hopes to obtain a real estate license soon . . . Jockey Drayden Van Dyke‘s five-pound apprentice allowance is good through Monday, Jan. 19. On Jan. 20, he starts as a full-fledged journeyman, with no weight advantage . . . Victor Espinoza worked Zenyatta‘s first foal to make it to the races, Cozmic One, five furlongs Thursday in 1:03.20. “This makes the third time I’ve worked him,” Espinoza said. “The time before, I worked him from the gate. He feels great. John (trainer John Shirreffs) has been going easy with him, bringing him along slow. I don’t know how good the horse is, because I’ve never really asked him to run yet. ” . . . Tom Quigley‘s guests in the East Paddock Gardens this weekend will be HRTV host/analyst Scott Hazelton, Saturday, and Derek Lawson, agent for jockey Flavien Prat, Sunday, both days at 11:20 a.m. . . . Jockey Alex Canchari has been suspended three racing days (Jan. 17, 18, 19) for careless riding on Best Efforts in Saturday’s fourth race . . . A Celebration of Life for the late Dr. Jack Robbins will be held Tuesday, Jan. 27, from 2 to 5 p.m., in Del Mar’s Turf Club . . .

His day was made when the cashier carded him. Rafael Bejarano591313822%$674,816 TALAMO SEEKS STAKES REPEAT IN MONDAY FEATUREJoe Talamo seeks his second straight stakes win on Harlington’s Rose when he rides her in Monday’s holiday feature, the Grade II Santa Monica Stakes for older fillies and mares at seven furlongs on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.Talamo guided the 4-year-old daughter of Harlington to a picture-perfect victory in the Kalookan Queen at 6 ½ furlongs on Dec. 28, rallying from a stalking trip to win by a length and a quarter.“She ran great; it set up for her,” Talamo said. “They went quick up front, and she runs her race every time, especially sprinting on dirt. She comes with that big run, so hopefully they go pretty quick and she’ll have a big shot.”Added trainer Steve Knapp: “She’s really sharp right now. We just asked her a little bit and she exploded in her work. We know she loves the dirt and she came out her race fantastic, so now’s the time to run.”Fans can “buck up” on bargain day at Santa Anita this Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which completes a three-day weekend at The Great Race Place with another popular Dollar Day. On-track attendees can enjoy draft beers, hot dogs and sodas for a dollar each. First post time is 12:30 p.m. Victor Espinoza4178317%$486,130 JOJO WARRIOR STRETCHES OUT IN LA CANADAIf punters were caught unaware by Jojo Warrior’s uncharacteristic eighth-place finish at7-2 in the Grade I La Brea Stakes at seven furlongs on Dec. 26, join the club.Imagine how Bob Baffert felt. He trains the 4-year-old Pioneerof the Nile filly, who finished 20 ½ lengths behind victorious Sam’s Sister.“I was surprised at how poorly she ran,” Baffert said. “She was training great going into it, but you know what? She wasn’t effective going one turn last year, and when I finally stretched her out, she was a different filly.”That’s what Baffert is hoping for when Jojo Warrior runs in Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 La Canada Stakes for older fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles.“She’s been training well for this race, so I think she doesn’t want any part of one turn,” Baffert said. “That’s it. She doesn’t want to be rushed.”On the status of Horse of the Year and male 3-year-old finalist Bayern Baffert said: “It’s not that serious, but I haven’t been able to work him.“He just had an abscess (on his right hind foot), so I’ve got to be really careful with it. He’s day to day.”The field for the La Canada: Fleet of Gold, Alex Solis, 12-1; Sam’s Sister, Elvis Trujillo, 2-1; Lexie Lou, Corey Nakatani, 6-5; Thegirlinthatsong, Rafael Bejarano, 8-1; Jojo Warrior, Martin Garcia, 4-1; Une Cherise, Joe Talamo, 15-1; Ramona’s Wildcat, Kent Desormeaux, 15-1; and Colonel Joan, Gary Stevens, 12-1.

The Megahertz will mark her third start for Sise. Previously, Floral Romance had been trained by Jerry Hollendorfer. The 6-year-old mare was third for Sise in the Swingtime at Santa Anita last Oct. 4, rallying after a slow start.“She ran great in the Swingtime, but when she shipped to Del Mar for the Crosby, she got very nervous in her stall, but she’s always shipped to Santa Anita well,” Sise said. “I have a window in her stall and she’s OK in there.Sise is back training full time after running Jenny Craig’s farm, “but when she closed it down and sold it, I went to Saudi Arabia a few months, then I came back and here I am, training out of San Luis Rey Downs.”The field for the Megahertz: Blingismything, Kent Desormeaux; Fanticola, Martin Garcia; Rusty Slipper, Rafael Bejarano; Nashoba’s Gold, Joe Talamo; Floral Romance, Brice Blanc; Winning Rhythm, Kieren Fallon; Industrial Policy, Corey Nakatani; Bee Brave, Gary Stevens; Oscar Party, Victor Espinoza; Magnificent Shirl, Martin Pedroza; and also-eligible Birdlover, Elvis Trujillo.

Eagles Burst Jets Bubble, 24-17

first_imgEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Brandon Marshall made a big catch and was determined to do something more.After all, the New York Jets’ offense was struggling and in dire need of a spark. So, Marshall carelessly tossed the ball behind him for a teammate — and flipped the momentum right back to the Philadelphia Eagles.“Wrong time to gamble,” Marshall said after the Jets’ 24-17 loss Sept. 27. “I was pressing, trying to make a play. Probably the worst play in NFL history.”It was that kind of day for Marshall and the Jets (2-1).Darren Sproles sparked the Eagles (1-2) with an 89-yard punt return for a score and added a 1-yard touchdown run, the defense caused four turnovers and Philadelphia got its first win of the season.“Now we know we’re not going to go undefeated this year,” said quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was intercepted three times.Sam Bradford threw a TD pass to Ryan Mathews, who also rushed for 108 yards on 25 carries while starting in place of the injured DeMarco Murray. The Eagles improved to 10-0 all-time against the Jets, who were coming off a victory at Indianapolis on Sept. 21.“They beat us at our own game,” said Jets coach Todd Bowles, whose team had 10 takeaways in the first two games and only one in this one.With the Jets trailing 17-0, Marshall caught a 15-yard pass — and then tried to get off a backward pass to Jeff Cumberland. But the ball hit an Eagles defender and was recovered by Jordan Hicks. A video review confirmed the call, and the Eagles made the Jets pay.Sproles scored moments later, running straight ahead for a 1-yard TD that gave Philadelphia a 24-0 lead with 2:11 remaining in the half.“You can’t do that,” Marshall said of his play. “The damage outweighs the reward so much.”Fitzpatrick threw touchdown passes to Marshall and Jeremy Kerley, but the last of his three INTs, by Walter Thurmond with 3:28 left, helped seal the Jets’ loss after they held the Eagles scoreless after halftime.Nick Folk kicked a 53-yard field goal with 2:34 remaining, but Seyi Ajirotutu recovered the onside kick and the Eagles ran out the clock.“I feel like the first couple of weeks, there was a lot of pressure on us,” Bradford said. “I feel like we were all pressing a little bit. It’s just nice to get that first one. Now that pressure’s gone.”Kerley, who had been dropped on the depth chart and played just two total snaps on offense entering the game, caught a 7-yard pass from Fitzpatrick to get the Jets within 24-14 with 9:37 remaining.The Jets appeared ready to turn the momentum in their favor when David Harris popped the ball out of Mathews’ hands and Demario Davis recovered. But three plays later, Philadelphia took it right back when Brandon Bair deflected Fitzpatrick’s pass intended for Marshall and Hicks grabbed the easy interception.Marshall finished with 10 catches for 109 yards and reached 10,000 yards receiving for his career.Bradford was 14 of 28 for 118 yards, while Fitzpatrick was 35 of 58 for 283 yards.Sproles put the Eagles up 10-0 with his spectacular punt return early in the second quarter, dodging at least four would-be Jets tacklers.“We just didn’t make any plays,” Bowles said. “They made plays and we didn’t. We didn’t make many in the second half, either.” (DENNIS WASZAK Jr., AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
