SAN GABRIEL STAKES QUOTES-SATURDAY, JANUARY 4, 2020

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESGEOVANNI FRANCO, DESERT STONE, WINNER:  “I could see everybody bunching up and I knew the pace was pretty slow, but my horse was just waiting for me to turn him loose, so I didn’t worry about it.  He’s always a handful. But he’s just doing really good. We expected him to run good today and I was very happy with the way he ran from off the pace.  I’ve worked him a lot and he likes me and I like him.”TRAINER QUOTESRICHARD BALTAS, DESERT STONE, WINNER: “He’s healthy now.  When we stopped on him (following a ninth place finish in the Grade I Shoemaker Mile here on May 27), we gave him 90 days on the farm and it did him a lot of good, he looked a lot healthier, obviously it paid off.  “Turf is weird, sometimes it holds the speed sometimes it doesn’t. The turf course changes daily so that is just the way he runs. You can’t change the horse’s style, he runs from behind and Geovanni Franco is the only guy that knows how to ride him. If you look at his form this horse just likes this jockey.“(Geovanni) does a good job, this is kind of a different horse. You can’t force this horse. He has a mind of his own, when he wants to run he’ll run and Geovanni lets him do his thing in the beginning.  He told me today, ‘If I can get him out we’re gonna be tough.’ He had been blocked several times in the stretch before.”NOTES: The winning owner is Zayat Stables, LLC.last_img read more

Lamela took his time making it 200 Spurs appearances but he made it one to remember

first_imgAS double centuries go, only Sir Geoffrey Boycott has taken longer to reach one.But Erik Lamela celebrated his 200th appearance for Tottenham in style as he helped them get back to winning ways with a 5-0 victory over Red Star Belgrade.3 Erik Lamela put in a quality showing in what was his 200th appearance for Spurs3 The Argentinian scored twice in Spurs’ 5-0 win over Red StarCredit: AFPThe Argentine capped a fine display with two assists and one goal – and it is not often we have been able to say that since Spurs signed him from Roma for a then-club record £30million in August 2013.He was bought with the proceeds of Gareth Bale’s then-world record £86m sale to Real Madrid.Bale money? At times Lamela’s displays were so criminal it felt more like bail money.It has certainly seemed an awful lot of cash to pay for a rabona in a meaningless Europa League tie in 2014 and a double strike against Leicester in the final game of the 2017-18 campaign – his two previous most memorable matches in a Spurs shirt.Admittedly he missed almost two seasons due to a serious double hip injury. Most of the other campaigns were missed due to sheer anonymity.MORE TO COME?It remains to be seen whether this will be another false dawn for Lamela, the man Spurs fans are still waiting to see fulfil his potential, despite being 27.But he gave us another glimpse of his reported talent by producing a well-taken corner for Harry Kane’s sixth-minute opener and a brilliant cross for Son Heung-min to make it 2-0 in the 19th minute.Lamela then scored his side’s fourth in the 57th minute as Spurs banished the painful memories – and the negative goal difference – caused by the 7-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich three weeks ago.Mind you, if you cannot deliver against Red Star, who can you deliver against?The boys from Belgrade played like a team of parcel delivery men as they gift-wrapped this Champions League victory to Spurs.3MORE SPURS STORIESHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrongGossipSPURRED ONTottenham table contract offer for Bayern Munich’s teenage starlet Taylor BoothExclusivePASS THE TESTEngland’s NRL-based stars urge bosses to make room for a Test this yearIt was only the North Londoners’ third clean sheet of what has been a disappointing season so far.The only time the Serbs got in behind them was when 350 of their fans – who were supposed to be banned from this fixture – congregated in the upper tier of the North Stand having somehow obtained tickets.Tottenham can expect a fine from Uefa for allowing that to happen – but not even that is likely to ruin their night.Red Star Belgrade fans make it into the Tottenham Hotspur stadium despite being banned by UEFA for racist chantinglast_img read more

Moura reveals boss Mourinho spent first month convincing squad they are winners

first_imgIs Wolves vs Tottenham on TV? Live stream, channel, kick-off time and betting odds for Premier League clash at Molineux LUCAS MOURA revealed Jose Mourinho has spent his first month in charge at Tottenham convincing the players they CAN be winners.Mourinho inherited a side from Mauricio Pochettino that had earned rave reviews for the way they competed at the highest level — yet failed to collect any silverware.3 Lucas Moura has enjoyed greater playing time under Jose MourinhoCredit: ReutersAnd Brazilian forward Moura says most of the work the new boss has been putting in has been on giving them belief that they can actually win trophies after all.Moura, 27, said: “He always talks to us, he tries to put in our mentality that we are strong, that we are a big club, that we are winners.“He tries to put this mentality in us and then afterwards, tactically, step by step, also his philosophy.“But especially he wants to put this mentality — a strong mentality, winners — in us.”Since Mourinho took charge in North London, Spurs have won three of their four Premier League matches to move back in contention for a top-four finish.Those hopes will be tested today when they visit a Wolves side unbeaten in the league for three months and harbouring hopes of breaking into the elite ranks themselves.The Molineux men are one point ahead of Spurs on 24 and juggling Europa League football themselves.Boss Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are safely through to the last 32 after a thumping 4-0 win over Braga on Thursday.3But Moura has pointed to the way they matched up to Sean Dyche’s Burnley in their 5-0 win last week as another clue about what has changed since the Special One arrived at the club.Moura added: “That’s the game we need to have as a reference. It was the best match with Jose, from the first minute to the last we were very aggressive.“We didn’t let Burnley play and that’s the spirit we need to keep. We need to do it in every game and if we do it — aggressive, concentration — then with our quality we can go very far.“That’s what we want to see from us. We have a lot of things to improve but, step by step, this aggression and this intensity we need to show in every game.“We now have the opportunity to get back in the top four, that’s our objective, the two next games are very, very important.“We are capable of being back up there and finishing the year in a very good way.“Then we can also start 2020 in a very positive position.“After that, we will think about the Champions League.3“But now our mentality is on the Premier League.”The change in mood from the dying days of the Pochettino era is obvious, with the players clearly responding to their new manager’s demands.Tottenham approach the second half of the season determined to make up ground and retain their status as a top-four club.LATEST TOTTENHAM NEWSHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrongMoura said: “We need to keep our spirit and keep going and I’m sure at the end of the season we will be in a very good position.“We need to keep the club in the top four, qualify for the Champions League and — why not — even win a trophy.“We have the FA Cup, plus the Champions League — the Premier League is very difficult — but we can arrive there, you never know.”last_img read more

Spurs eye stunning late bid for Chelsea striker Giroud as Kane stand-in

first_imgTOTTENHAM are in talks with Olivier Giroud over a shock late transfer bid, according to reports.The North London club are keen to bring in a striker before Friday’s deadline with Harry Kane recovering from hamstring surgery.2 Olivier Giroud is a late January transfer target for Tottenham with Harry Kane injuredCredit: AFP – GettyAnd Italian Sky Sport reporter Gianluca Di Marzio believes Spurs are lining up a move for Giroud.They are thought to have offered the Frenchman – whose deal at Chelsea expires in the summer – an 18-month contract at White Hart Lane.Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has hinted he wants to bring in another striker with Kane out and Dele Alli, Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Erik Lamela all attacking players but not No9s.As revealed by SunSport, Daniel Levy is willing to spend just £10million on a new striker – infuriating other clubs by not getting anywhere near their asking fees.Levy only wanted to pay Milan £10m for Krzysztof Piatek even though they rate him at three times that figure.And he was only willing to shell out the same amount for Real Sociedad’s Willian Jose, even though he is available for £21m.SPURS NEWS LIVE: Follow all the latest news on TottenhamSpurs are also looking at Benfica’s £15m-rated Haris Seferovic while winger Steven Bergwijn will join in a £27m deal from PSV.Giroud, 33, has played just seven time for Chelsea this season with Frank Lampard preferring Michy Batshuayi as Tammy Abraham’s understudy.His only goal came in the shootout defeat to Liverpool in the Super Cup on August 14.With his lack of game time, Giroud was expected to leave Stamford Bridge this month as he tries to secure his place in the France squad for Euro 2020.Inter Milan were keen but their interest cooled, while Aston Villa, Newcastle, Juventus, Atletico Madrid, Crystal Palace and Lyon have all been linked this month.
