Leopardstown or Limerick next for Avant Tout

first_img Steve Massey, racing manager for the owners Supreme Horse Racing Club, said: ” I was excited to hear he has been given an entry in the Grade One three-mile novice chase at Leopardstown and there is also a Grade Two at Limerick on Boxing Day – a race Willie (Mullins) has won with Sir Des Champs and The Paparrazi Kid in recent years. “He is really a spring horse and we already have one eye on the big Festivals next year.” Another Supreme runner being primed for a return is talented mare Uranna, who is set to embark on a career over fences. The seven-year-old won a Listed hurdle race at Sandown back in February and was last seen being touched off by stable companion Whiteout at the Punchestown Festival. “She is in very good order and is a real natural over fences,” said Massey. “She opened her account over hurdles at Limerick last Christmas and the plan is to head back there for a mares’ beginners chase on December 29. “I’m really excited about seeing her tackle the larger obstacles.” Punchestown Festival winner Avant Tout is in line to make his return to action at either Leopardstown or Limerick over the Christmas period. The five-year-old was a surprise winner for Willie Mullins in County Kildare in April, but showed off his talent once more with an emphatic success on his chasing bow at Tramore a month later. Given a break since, Avant Tout is set for a step up in class this winter, with the newly-named Neville Hotels Novice Chase at Leopardstown on December 29 among his options. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Astros Notes: Josh Reddick is prepared to hear from Dodgers fans

first_img Dodgers vs. Houston Astros World Series scouting report, prediction LOS ANGELES — Josh Reddick is fully expecting to be booed by Dodgers fans whenever they have the chance.That’s how they treated him when he was a Dodger.“This is going to be fun,” the Houston Astros right fielder said. “I expect the full hazing as I should deserve. I enjoyed my time here. I enjoyed my time as a Dodger. I didn’t do as well as I’d hoped, as well as anybody hoped, I’m sure.”Related Articles “It’s always tough when you come out for your first home game and get booed,” Reddick said. “That definitely wasn’t a sign I was expecting. It hurts you a little bit, but you try to move on and play the game the right way. It just didn’t work out.”Reddick rallied to finish hitting .258 with the Dodgers. The Dodgers used the left-handed hitting Reddick mostly against right-handed pitchers, but after he signed a four-year, $52 million deal with the Astros, he asked Manager A.J. Hinch to give him a shot against lefties.The result? Reddick this season has hit .315 against lefties, by far the best mark of his career. His career average against lefties is still just .229. It’s significant because the Dodgers will have a lefty starter in five of a possible seven games, starting with Clayton Kershaw and Rich Hill in the first two.“With more reps comes more success,” Reddick said. “I wasn’t trying to do too much. I shied away from trying to hit the long ball as much as possible, getting my hits when I can. If they go out, they go out. That was a big thing for me to stay focused on, and really work at.”Video: Dodgers vs. Astros World Series preview World Series guest analyst: Dodgers vs. Astros, Game 1 Dodgers vs. Astros is a World Series for baseball’s Information Age Astros’ diminutive Jose Altuve reaching new heights as a hitter Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Whicker: Astros offer Dodgers a stiff 7-game challenge The Dodgers acquired Reddick (along with starting pitcher Rich Hill) from the Oakland A’s last July. In his first 23 games he hit .139. He went hitless in eight at-bats in his first two Dodgers games, on the road, and then he came home and showed his new fans an 0 for 4 in his first game. Back injury could make Corey Seager the Dodgers’ preferred DH in Houston READY FOR THE STAGEChris Devenski looks at the World Series from a couple personal angles. A native of Cerritos and a product of Cal State Fullerton, Devenski said it will be “like a home game” pitching at Dodger Stadium.More important, though, is the way he plans to pitch.“I wasn’t at my best (so far in the postseason),” he said. “But that’s motivating at the same time. I know what I’ve done. I have something to prove.”During the regular season, Devenski was one of the best, most valuable, relievers in the majors. He posted a 2.68 ERA while pitching 80-2/3 innings, one of the heaviest workloads among all big league relievers. Devenski’s devastating changeup also made him deadly against lefties.In the postseason, though, Devenski has allowed four earned runs on five hits in three innings. He said the problem has amounted to jitters in his first time in the postseason.“Stepping on the field and feeling the way I have on this stage, I never felt like this before,” he said. “For me that’s all about adjusting to that. I haven’t been able to adjust to that as quick as I have other things in my life. That’s where the learning and the growth comes in for me.”Devenski said he feels he’s over that now. He is expecting to pitch well again, doing so in front of friends and family. Last year, he came to Dodger Stadium and watched one of the National League Championship Series games against the Chicago Cubs from the stands.“I saw the electricity and vibe going on in the stadium and it was amazing,” he said. “Being able to be part of it will be extra special.”ALSOHinch said Charlie Morton and Lance McCullers are likely to start Games 3 and 4, although he’s not sure of the order. … Asked if losing the designated hitter will be a disadvantage for the Astros at Dodger Stadium, he quipped: “As much as I’ve tried to get the Dodgers to play with the DH, they said no.” … Hinch and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts have a relationship that dates to their days in college, when Roberts played at UCLA and Hinch at Stanford. Hinch was assistant GM of the San Diego Padres when Roberts was a coach. Miller: Dodgers reaching the World Series comes at a high cost – for fans last_img read more
