Kilroe Mile–which is also his first start for trainer Art Sherman.With an 11-race card on tap, the busiest trainer in Arcadia will be Doug O’Neill, who has 11 horses entered throughout the day which will begin with a special early first post time of 12 noon. A three-time Santa Anita training king, the 48-year-old O’Neill is a racing department’s dream, evidenced by the fact he’s entered a Winter-Meet high of 121 horses, 12 more than runner-up Richard Baltas.“Team O’Neill” could have its best chance Saturday with Iliad in the San Felipe, although the son of 2004 Horse of the Year Ghostzapper looms the third choice behind Mastery and Gormely, a winner of the Grade I FrontRunner here on Oct. 1 and the Grade III Sham Stakes on Jan. 7.O’Neill has enjoyed successful treks on the Triple Crown trail, having won the Kentucky Derby twice in the last four years, with I’ll Have Another in 2012 and again last year with Eclipse Champion 2-year-old Male of 2015, Nyquist.Owned by Kaleem Shah, who also campaigns Dortmund, Iliad has had only three starts, all of them sprints and none further than his 3 ½ length win in the seven furlong, Grade II San Vicente here on Feb. 12–a race that produced a career-best 96 Beyer Speed figure.Among those in Iliad’s San Vicente wake was 4-5 favorite Battle of Midway, who although he was beaten eighth lengths, rebounded to win a first condition allowance here on Thursday for Jerry Hollendorfer, prevailing by a neck while getting a mile and a sixteenth in 1:44.16 under Flavien Prat. Following the win, Hollendorfer told TVG’s Britney Eurton that his Smart Strike colt would now be considered for the Grade I, $1 million Santa Anita Derby on April 8.“Iliad ran huge in the San Vicente,” said O’Neill. “He’s got a mind, the stride and the pedigree of a two-turn horse, but you never know until you do it. We’re excited about him. He’s doing really well.”In addition to Iliad, O’Neill will also be represented in the San Felipe by Term of Art and Ann Arbor Eddie.A winner of the Grade III Cecil B. DeMille Stakes three starts back at Del Mar on Nov. 27, Term of Art comes off an even fourth place finish in the Grade III Robert B. Lewis on Feb. 4, while Ann Arbor Eddie, a two-time stakes winner versus state-breds, comes off a second place finish at even money in the Grade III El Camino Real Derby at Golden Gate Fields on Feb. 18.The San Felipe offers 85 Kentucky Derby qualifying points, distributed on a 50-20-10-5 basis.Team O’Neill will also have a three-pronged attack in the $75,000 China Doll Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at a mile on grass: Go On Mary, How About Zero and Simmy’s Temple.I don’t know if running 11 in one day at the same track is a personal record,” O’Neill said, “But it’s close. I’ve had a bunch before, but that’s a lot. It’s going to be an exciting day. The weather’s going to be nice and all the horses are doing well.” Santiago Gonzalez10912181311%39%$570,427 LARGE NUMBER OF BIG ‘CAP DAY SCHOOLERS SET FOR TODAY The following horses, all entered for Santa Anita Handicap Day, tomorrow, will be on display in the saddling paddock throughout this afternoon: Race Three: Masochistic, Ron Ellis (Triple Bend)Imperative, Bob Hess, Jr. (Big ‘Cap) Philip D’Amato7515101320%51%$910,490 Tyler Baze21035412417%48%$1,646,719 William Spawr27104337%63%$303,251 (Current Through Thursday, March 9, 2017 Inclusive) Martin Pedroza10314191914%50%$586,753 Peter Eurton48105621%44%$531,807 Race Two: Flamboyant, Paddy Gallagher (Kilroe Mile)La Force, Gallagher (China Doll)Madame Dancelot, Richard Baltas (China Doll)Silent Bird, Mark Glatt (Triple Bend) Race One: No Walking, Phil D’Amato (Triple Bend)Conquest Enforcer, D’Amato (Kilroe Mile)Midnight Storm, D’Amato (Big ‘Cap)Hard Aces, John Sadler (Big ‘Cap)Lady Beware, Mick Ruis (China Doll) Edwin Maldonado61107916%43%$321,640 Bob Baffert51107920%51%$978,451 Richard Baltas10919191717%50%$1,011,712 Trainer Standings Corey Nakatani65117617%37%$603,746 (Current Through Thursday, March 9, 2017 Inclusive) Tiago Pereira9511111312%37%$380,035 Jerry Hollendorfer10521142120%53%$1,494,864 Steven Miyadi56814614%50%$378,701 Doug F.

TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Newcastle offer Benitez new contractby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveNewcastle United have offered manager Rafa Benitez a new one-year contract offer.The Times says there has been fresh discussion about overcoming the current impasse, and a front runner is the possibility of a 12-month extension on the £6m-a-year deal the former Real Madrid and Liverpool manager signed in May 2016.Owner Mike Ashley, who is keen to sell the club and has called on would-be purchasers, including Peter Kenyon, to meet his asking price of between £280-£300m this month, remains unlikely to strengthen heavily during January without agreement.If Benitez agrees to the new deal then the tight hold on club’s finances is likely to be unlocked, although there remains a fundamental disagreement over how that money should be spent; Ashley wants young players whose value will rise and Benitez wants experience.However, without the confirmation of Benitez staying beyond the end of the season, Newcastle are unlikely to sanction the spending spree their supporters have been calling on for three transfer windows.
Aston Villa boss Smith: Players sorted out Mings, El Ghazi incidentby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveAston Villa manager Dean Smith has played down an incident between Anwar El-Ghazi and Tyrone Mings. El-Ghazi appeared to throw his head at Mings, who yelled at his team-mate for being out of position in Monday’s goalless draw with West Ham United.On the incident, Smith said: “I didn’t need to [intervene], the players dealt with it. That’s the group of players I’ve got. There’s a great togetherness and team spirit in the dressing room.”Looking at it, he went over the edge a little but I’m happy for the players to do that. It was a bit of a heat of the moment, that will happen.”That’s the end of it. It got dealt with very quickly, it’s a team sport. It happens. At half time they shook hands and did their best for their teammates in the second half.”No it’s not a concern.
