ARCADIA, Calif. -- As he watched the horses run away from the gate in Saturdays Breeders Cup Juvenile, trainer Mark Casse said he couldnt find his horse.Did he come out? wondered Casse, who was not looking toward the front of the 11-horse field.Indeed, Classic Empire came out running and put himself right into the race in the early stages of the Juvenile. After stalking Syndergaard for nearly six furlongs, Classic Empire took the lead midway on the far turn, opened up a clear advantage turning for home, then held off a late bid from Not This Time to win the $2 million Breeders Cup Juvenile by a neck at Santa Anita.It was 7-1/2 lengths farther back to Practical Joke in third. He was followed by Lookin At Lee, Syndergaard, Three Rules, Gormley, Klimt, Term of Art, Theory, and Star Empire.The win was the fourth from five starts for Classic Empire and most likely cemented him as 2-year-old male champion. Twenty-four of the previous 32 Juvenile winners were crowned champion, and Classic Empires résumé includes victories in the Grade 1 Breeders Futurity and Grade 3 Bashford Manor.Classic Empires only loss was basically a nonstart. He wheeled at the start of the Grade 1 Hopeful at Saratoga, unseating jockey Irad Ortiz Jr., and basically ran off for 10 yards. He was uninjured.It was after that race that Casse put blinkers on Classic Empire. He won the Breeders Futurity at Keeneland leading up to the Juvenile.When Casse looked at the field for the Juvenile, he anticipated there being three or four speed horses whom Classic Empire would stalk. He didnt anticipate being a half-length off Syndergaard through a quarter in 23.05 seconds and a half-mile in 46.60. Neither did winning rider Julien Leparoux.I didnt expect to be where I was, to be honest, said Leparoux, who noted that there were speed horses directly to his inside and outside. I had to break at least good and ask him away from there. I really thought they were going to clear me and I was going to sit third or fourth. By the first turn, I was happy where I was, thats for sure.Classic Empire took the lead just before they ran six furlongs, which was timed in 1:10.48. Classic Empire opened up, and Casse thought Classic Empire was going to win by three or four lengths. But Not This Time, the 5-2 favorite coming off an 8 3/4-length victory in the Iroquois Stakes, had advanced from sixth to third and was on the move under Robby Albarado.Not This Time kept grinding away but could not catch Classic Empire.Classic Empire, a son of Pioneerof the Nile -- the same sire as 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah -- covered 1-1/16 miles in 1:42.60 and returned $11 as the second choice. He is owned by John Oxley, who purchased Classic Empire for $475,000 at the Keeneland yearling sale.Oxley campaigned 2001 Kentucky Derby winner Monarchos, who died two weeks ago due to complications from surgery to repair a ruptured intestine.Now we have another one maybe, Oxley said. Wed like to think he might replace him down the road.Trainer Dale Romans had been touting Not This Time as potentially the best horse hes ever trained. But Not This Time isnt all there yet mentally, according to Albarado.He dont have it serious where he knows exactly what to do, thats the good part about it, Albarado said. He wasnt all out today, theres more to him. Hes an improving horse, fourth start, I look for him in the future. Hes going to be a nice horse next year.Its going to be a fun spring, Romans said.Both Classic Empire and Not This Time are expected to winter in south Florida. Chargers Jerseys Online .

Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks.

McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. LOS ANGELES -- Yasmani Grandal homered three times to drive in six runs, Justin Turner and Howie Kendrick added solo shots, and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 10-6 on Friday night, snapping a three-game skid.The teams combined for 28 hits and seven homers, including two by San Diegos Melvin Upton Jr.Both starters struggled mightily before leaving early. San Diegos Andrew Cashner gave up a career-high eight runs, while Los Angeles Scott Kazmir labored through a 31-pitch, 27-minute first inning in a game that lasted 3 hours, 45 minutes.Grandal had the first three-homer game of his career against his former team. He singled in the eighth, giving him a career-high five hits. He took a foul ball off his mask in the sixth. Grandal had hit .182 with two homers in 18 previous games against the Padres, who traded him to the Dodgers for outfielder Matt Kemp, who went 0 for 5.Pedro Baez (2-2) got the win in relief, allowing one hit in 2 2/3 innings.Kazmir allowed three runs and six hits in three innings, struck out five and walked three. The left-hander had been unbeaten in his previous 10 starts, losing for the first time since May 9.Cashner (3-7) lasted just 2 2/3 innings, giving up eight hits, including four homers, while striking out two and walking three. The Dodgers feasted on Cashners fastball, teeing off on it for their first eight runs.Upton led off the fourth with his 16th homer of the season on the first pitch from Louis Coleman, leaving San Diego trailing 8-4. Upton has seven homers in his last 12 games. Coleman gave up three runs and four hits in one-plus innings.The Dodgers extended their lead to 7-3 in the third.

Turner got things going with his solo homer. Adrian Gonzalez singled and scored -- going wide to avoid the tag with his left hand on the plate -- on Yasiel Puigs double. Grandal followed with his first home run of the game, driving in Puig.San Diego catcher Derek Norris left the game in the fourth with a right quad contusion, the result of a first-inning collision with Chase Utley. Alexei Ramirez grounded into a bases-loaded fielders choice to Utley at second and Norris ran into him, causing them both to fall down. Norris was out on runners interference.STARTING IN CENTER FIELDFrom Oklahoma City to starting in center field for the Dodgers was Andrew Toles. The 24-year-old outfielder had his contract purchased Friday and he made his major league debut after being out of baseball last year because of personal issues.He doubled in the second for his first big--league hit.ddddddddddddToles started for the Triple-A team Thursday night against Omaha and then caught an early flight to the West Coast. He began the season with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga and moved on to Double-A Tulsa before joining OKC.He was on the radar because he can really hit, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.Regular center fielder Joc Pederson is on the DL and the team has a short bench, leading to Toles promotion.PADRES AGREE WITH CUBAN PITCHERThe Padres have agreed to terms with 17-year-old Cuban pitcher Adrian Morejon, pending a physical. The left-hander led Cubas 15-under league with 113 strikeouts in 68.0 innings in 2014, and had a 1.93 ERA while issuing 40 walks. Last year, he pitched in several Cuban leagues. In 2014, he started six games in the Cuban National Series for Mayabeque, with a 4.88 ERA.Ive watched a lot of video on him and Im very impressed, manager Andy Green said. His curveball, he can really spin it, real professional approach on the mound. I think more than anything this says our ownership is committed to building a winner.DODGERS MOVESTo make room for Toles on the active roster, the Dodgers optioned RHP Carlos Frias, who pitched four scoreless innings in the teams 6-0 loss Thursday, to Oklahoma City. To create room on the 40-man roster, Los Angeles designated INF Cole Figueroa for assignment. Also, to complete last weeks trade with Atlanta for RHP Bud Norris, the Dodgers acquired RHP Alec Grosser as the player to be named later. Grosser appeared in three games for Rookie-level Danville this year.TRAINERS ROOMPadres: RHP Tyson Ross (shoulder inflammation) reported discomfort in his twisted left ankle after playing catch from 120 feet at flat ground.
