Bury St Edmunds County Upper 1 became the second team in four years from Suffolk to win the English Schools Team Championship at Woodhall Spa.With the best two scores from three to count, their line-up of Ben Aves, Ali Reid and Alex Earle compiled 77 Stableford points to finish one ahead of Carr Hill High and Sixth Form College from Lancashire with Northampton School and Tudor Grange from Worcestershire sharing third spot on 73.In extremely windy conditions over the Bracken Course, fifteen-year-old Aves returned 39 points off a handicap of seven, backed by 38 from Reid, off 20, while 19-handicap Earle posted 30.“This is wonderful because it is a national competition and there were a lot of good players here,” said Reid. “It was also very windy, much different to our practice round, and I found the greens hard to read.”The trio (image © Leaderboard Photography) , all members of Bury St Edmunds Golf Club, enjoyed chip-ins to boost their tallies. Aves holed from off the green at the fifth for par, a hole he eagled in the practice round, Earle sank a 50-yard approach to the sixth for par, while Reid benefited by a 30-yard chip-in for birdie at the fourth. However, Earle found the Bracken’s water hazards troublesome and fell foul of them on several occasions.Jim Neale, a representative of the school travelling with the team said, “It is a huge honour to win such a prestigious competition and the school is rightly very proud of each of the lads. The team is young and eligible to return for at least the next two years – hopefully!”However, the team’s 77 points paled into insignificance compared to their 88 point tally when they qualified at Rushmere in Ipswich.Aves, whose handicap has descended from 11 at the start of the year, also won the newly instigated individual prize, The Tom Ward Cup, his 39 points being one more than four other returns.This has been inaugurated in memory of Tom Ward, England Golf and the National Schools Golf Association’s official photographer, who sadly passed away just over a year ago.There to present the cup was Tom’s widow Elizabeth, who travelled down from her home in Yorkshire to hand over the new trophy.For more information, visit the championship webpage. 9 Jul 2014 Suffolk on top again thanks to the Bury boys

ARCADIA, Calif. (March 9, 2017)–Seemingly invigorated since changing her base of operations from Toronto, Canada to the Richard Baltas barn at Santa Anita, Irish-bred Goodyearforroses will bid for her third Winter Meet win in a row in Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 Santa Ana Stakes for older fillies and mares at a mile and one eighth on turf.Several distaffers rate competitive chances in the eight-horse Santa Ana, including trainer Paulo Lobo’s Pretty Girl, who was second to “Goodyear” two starts back in the Robert J. Frankel Stakes on Dec. 31, a race that was shifted to a “sloppy” main track and thus lost its Grade III status. Be sure to tune into XBTV on Sunday at www.xbtv.com/watch-live/ from any mobile device or computer. The XBTV team will feature live, on-site coverage throughout the race day, as well as providing Gulfstream Park bonus coverage as well.

GOODYEARFORROSES: Sold privately following a close third place finish in the Grade III Maple Leaf Stakes at Woodbine on Nov. 5, she seemed to relish the sloppy conditions in the Frankel and rallied strongly from off the pace to win the mile and one half turf Astra II Stakes here on Feb. 2. The triumvirate of Goodyearforroses, Corey Nakatani and Baltas will be bidding for their third win in a row as the 5-year-old mare attempts her first graded stakes win. Owned by Abbondanza Racing, she has six wins from 14 starts and has earnings of $245,995. PRETTY GIRL: A Group I & III winner in her native Argentina, this classy 6-year-old mare made her U.S. debut in the prestigious Grade I Beverly D Stakes on Aug. 13 at Arlington Park, rallying from far back to finish a respectable seventh and was idle until running second in the Dec. 31 Frankel, her first start for Lobo. Although far back early in the Beverly D, she pressed the early Frankel pace but was no match for Goodyearforroses late. With Victor Espinoza engaged to ride for the first time, chances are Pretty Girl will approach the Santa Ana with a “wait and see” approach at a mile and one eighth. Owned by Stud RDI, LLC and Bonne Chance Farm, LLC, Pretty Girl is 8-4-1-1, with all of her wins coming on turf.

The Toronto Blue Jays are inching closer to acquiring 2012 Cy Young award winner R.A. Dickey from the New York Mets, according to multiple sources.There were several other teams that were strongly interested in the services of Dickey, but the Mets decided to channel their negotiations with the Blue Jays and cut off all other discussions with the other teams, according to CBSSports.com.As of Saturday morning a major league executive aware of the negotiations told ESPNNewYork.com that both teams are working towards completing the trade.The Mets have discussed acquiring the Blue Jays top catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud, who they previously did not want to include, and center fielder Anthony Gose.Last season while playing in Triple-A in Las Vegas, the 23-year-old d’Arnaud had a batting average of .333, on base percentage of .380, a slugging average of .595 and 16 home runs.Dickey has yet to discuss extension talks, nor has he been asked to take a physical according to sources close with ESPNNewYork.com.The 38-year-old Dickey put together impressive numbers to win the 2012 Cy Young award. He led the NL with 233 2/3 innings pitched and finished second with an ERA of 2.73. He also led the league in strikeouts with 230 and owns a lifetime career ERA of 3.98 over 10 major-league seasons.Dickey, who is under contract with the Mets next season for $5 million, attempted to negotiate an extension with the club, but both sides were approximately $6 million apart. The Mets offered Dickey a two-year extension worth $20 million, while Dickey requested a two-year extension for $26 million.The knuckleballer made his frustrations known publically about the negotiations while attending a holiday party earlier this week at Citi Field for children affected by Hurricane Sandy.“In the context of the market, you want what you think is fair,” Dickey told reporters. “I feel like we’re asking for less than what’s fair because that’s how it’s been for me.”
The path to what some fans hope will be a national championship season is now set in stone as Ohio State football finalized its 2013 schedule Friday. Fifteen days after Vanderbilt canceled its trip to Columbus for next year, the Buckeyes added San Diego State for a Sept. 7 contest against the Aztecs in Ohio Stadium. “San Diego State has a fine football program and we are happy to be able to add them to our schedule,” OSU athletic director Gene Smith said in a released statement. “We have had an excellent relationship with SDSU over the years with three exciting, competitive games since 2001.” The 2013 game will be the fourth time the two teams have met since 2001. The Buckeyes, which hold a 3-0 advantage in the series, have outscored the Aztecs, 70-31 over the course of contests in 2001, 2003 and 2005. SDSU, which finds itself currently a member of the Mountain West Conference, will move to the Big East next season a long with fellow MWC member, Boise State. Other non-conference opponents for the 2012 season include Buffalo, Florida A&M and California. OSU continues its 2012 campaign against Illinois Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Ohio Stadium.
