She laid the foundations of the win with a superb seven-under 65 in the first round and followed up with scores of 75, 74. She had 12 birdies and an eagle during the 54-hole event. Hayley, from Ferndown in Dorset, is a student at Baylor University, Texas, and her coach, Jay Goble, commented after the final round: “Hayley played great this week.

Powered by Firework The cricket fans of India have gone the most bizarre of ways to show their love and support for the team. From body paints to mimicking the appearance of their favourite superstars, the supporters never fail to amuse. Such is the case of one fan who was present at the first match of the ongoing One Day International Series between India and Australia. Meet Chirag Khilare, who had the face of irat Kohli behind his head as a haircut!Advertisement Image Courtesy: TOI/APBack in December, Chirag Khilare posted a photo on his Twitter handle, where he was seen donning the tricolour during the West Indies series, and the back of his head was trimmed and shaved to Virat Kohli’s face, the cricketer that he idolises. He captioned the picture with: “The best @imVkohli From heart to head.” Check it out below-Advertisement Before the start of Tuesday’s match at the Wankhede stadium, Chirag spoke to ANI about his appraisal of the Men in Blues’ skipper.“For many years now, I have been following Virat in every match in India and have been a fan of him since he became the captain of the Under-19 team,” he told reporters.Wearing his icon’s face behind his head that took around almost eight hours to complete, Chirag said that he dreams of meeting Virat Kohli in person.“My dream is to meet Kohli and when I will meet him, I will first touch his feet and hug him and capture that moment through a photograph.” he added.While Chirag was full on enthusiastic for the first ODI match, India suffered a horrible defeat against Australia. Bowled out on 255 runs in the first innings, the bowlers couldn’t counter the swashbuckling Aussie opening duo of David Warner and the skipper Aaron Finch, who won the match without losing a single wicket. “We were totally outplayed in all departments,” Kohli spoke in the post match interview.“It’s a strong Australian team, if you don’t play well, they could hurt you. We saw that with the bat in hand. We didn’t get enough runs.” the 31 year old added.The second match of the ODI series is tomorrow at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.Also read-Ind vs Aus 1st ODI Review: Australia batter the Men In Blue to extend their formidable runSee the lovely message a fan sent Irfan Pathan after his retirement!

BLINGISMYTHING JUST UP TO WIN GRADE III, $100,000 WILSHIRE STAKES BY A NOSE IN THRILLING FOUR-HORSE PHOTO; BAZE, KRULJAC TEAM FOR WIN AT MILE ON TURF

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (April 26, 2015)–Patience is a virtue. You’d get no argument from Tyler Baze on that account, as he bided his time and orchestrated a thrilling nose victory in Sunday’s Grade III, $100,000 Wilshire Stakes aboard the Eric Kruljac-conditioned Blingismything who prevailed in a four-horse photo while covering a flat mile on turf in 1:37.16.Next to last with a quarter mile to run in a compact field of six fillies and mares 3-and-up, Baze split horses two off the rail a sixteenth out and eked out the win over a fast closing Smoove It, who was caught wide with Mario Gutierrez up.“I won pretty easy, I thought,” said Baze. “She’s just a nice filly. I broke her maiden first time out a couple of years ago at Hollywood. This is my first opportunity to ride her back so I made the most of it. She’s a nice filly to ride with a big heart.”Owned by Class Racing Stable, Blingismything was the second choice in the field at 5-2 and paid $7.40, $3.80 and $2.40. A 5-year-old Kentucky-bred mare by Arch, she was a close third in the Grade III Las Cienegas Stakes April 11, and the Wilshire triumph provided her with her first-ever stakes win. With the winner’s share of $60,000, she increased her earnings to $246,330 and ran her overall record to 10-4-2-3.Trained by Doug O’Neill, Smoove It, who saved ground at the rail into and around the far turn, angled five-wide off the fence approaching the quarter pole and just missed at 6-1, finishing a head in front of her favored stablemate, Birdlover. Smoove paid $5.60 and $3.20.“I thought I had it,” said Gutierrez. “She’s improving a lot and I was hoping to get that kind of race out of her.”Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Birdlover, who broke from the outside, was off at 9-5, made an easy lead and tired late to finish third, a nose in front of Indecise. Birdlover paid $2.40 to show.“My filly broke beautifully,” said Bejarano. “We had an easy pace, 23 and change, 48 and change…it was perfect. The other horses were just flying late and we got beat a head. She ran great, no excuse.”Fractions on the race, set by Birdlover, were 23.64, 48.79, 1:13.48 and 1:25.23.Racing resumes at Santa Anita on Thursday, with first post time at 1 p.m. Admission gates open at 11 a.m. –30–last_img read more

DESORMEAUX’S EXAGGERATOR & BAFFERT’S MOR SPIRIT HEADLINE COMPETITIVE GRADE II, $400,000 SAN FELIPE STAKES AT 1 1/16 MILES

first_imgMOR SPIRIT: A better-than-looked 1 ½ length winner of the Grade III, 1 1/16 miles Robert B. Lewis Stakes here Feb. 6, he took the Grade I Los Alamitos Futurity at the same distance on Dec. 19. Although he’s proven a bit reluctant on occasion in the mornings, the Pennsylvania-bred ridgling by Eskendereya is progressing nicely for Baffert who won last year’s San Felipe with Dortmund, who provided him with his record fifth San Felipe win. Owned by Michael L. Petersen, Mor Spirit has been ridden to all three of his career wins by Gary Stevens, who’s back aboard on Saturday. – UNCLE LINO: A sharp second in his first route try to Mor Spirit in the 1 1/16 miles Robert B. Lewis, this improving son of Uncle Mo will try to establish himself as a top tier Derby hopeful for trainer Gary Sherlock. Ridden in all four of his starts by Fernando Perez, Uncle Lino pressed a solid pace in the Lewis and finished well. Owned by Tom Mansor, Purple Shamrock Racing or Sherlock, Uncle Lino will get an “acid test” in the San Felipe.   EXAGGERATOR: A big second to undefeated Eclipse Champion Nyquist in Santa Anita’s Grade II, seven furlong San Vicente Stakes Feb. 15, this Kentucky-bred colt by Curlin figures to improve with the added distance and a recent race under his belt. Owned by Big Chief Racing, LLC, Head of Plains, LLC, Rocker O Ranch LLC and Keith Desormeaux, he’s proven to be a versatile sort who can press the pace or stalk. With a pair of graded stakes wins to his credit, he has three overall wins and two seconds from seven starts, good for career earnings of $1,023,120. He’ll again be ridden by Desormeaux’s Hall of Fame brother, Kent.

Trained by Carla Gaines, he’ll be ridden by California Chrome’s regular pilot, Victor Espinoza. Smokey Image is owned by Irvin Racing Stable and he’s banked $435,100. DANZING CANDY: Trained by Cliff Sise, Danzing Candy has been ultra impressive in a pair of allowance wins at the current Winter Meet, his most recent a 5 ¾ length gate to wire romp going a flat mile here on Feb. 4. Lightly raced, this Kentucky-bred colt by Twirling Candy will make his stakes debut in the San Felipe, which will be his fourth career start and second around two turns. Bred by Ted Aroney’s Halo Farms and owned by Halo Farms, Bashor or Bashor, Danzing Candy has trained forwardly out of his most recent win and will be ridden for the third time in a row by Mike Smith.THE SAN FELIPE STAKES FIELD IN POST POSITION ORDERRace 7                   Approximate post time, 3:05 p.m. PTUncle – Lino Fernando Perez – 120Danzing Candy – Mike Smith – 120Mor Spirit – Gary Stevens – 124Cupid – Martin Garcia – 120I Will Score – Rafael Bejarano – 120Smokey Image – Victor Espinoza – 120Exaggerator – Kent Desormeaux – 122                The San Felipe Stakes, final major steppingstone to the Grade I, $1 million Santa Anita Derby on April 9, will award the winner 50 Kentucky Derby qualifying points.

Evo-Giants Battle Over Evo-Love

first_imgRichard Dawkins and E. O. Wilson, both atheistic evolutionists, are at odds over the evolution of unselfish love (altruism).  Wilson attributes it to a revised form of group selection; Dawkins to individual selection (the basis of his “selfish gene” theory).    Evolutionists see no difference between the “eusociality” in insect colonies, in which individuals sacrifice themselves for the good of the colony, and human patriotism.  Wilson wrote up a survey in the journal Bioscience that questioned the traditional kin selection theory, according to EurekAlert.  Many considered group selection a dead issue.  Wilson himself admitted that “If you look at the literature of the theory, there are a lot of impressive-looking mathematical models but they scarcely ever come up with a real measure of anything that can be applied to nature.”  In his article, he came up with a revised model of kin selection to explain altruism.    This has not pleased Richard Dawkins, according to an article in the UK Independent.  Dawkins thinks Wilson’s new approach is misleading and vacuous.  To Dawkins, kin selection is just an artifact of individual selection.  Wilson has fallen into a trap of misunderstanding natural selection at the gene level.  The rhetoric between these two giants among evolutionary theorists got heated when Dawkins said, “Evidently Wilson’s weird infatuation with ‘group selection’ goes way back; unfortunate in a biologist who is so justly influential.”    Wilson stood his ground in the battle royale: “I am used to taking the heat, and in the past I turned out to be right,” he said.  Evolutionary theory has had particular trouble with explaining why humans will sacrifice for other people they don’t even know, or for animals.Maybe they would learn more about altruism by practicing it.  It might dawn on them that it could not have evolved.  Give up the weird infatuation with evolutionary theory, gentlemen; you both know that your impressive-looking mathematical models scarcely ever come up with a real measure of anything that can be applied to nature.  Who said that?(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
