first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESFLAVIEN PRAT, WINNER:  “This is a good way to start off the New Year.  It’s nice to win a race like this for Peter.  We broke sharp and he was a little tough with me on the backside, but once I got him covered up, he dropped the bit and relaxed beautifully.  He’s a very consistent horse and at this distance, he’s really tough.”TRAINER QUOTESPETER MILLER, TEXAS WEDGE, WINNER: “When turf racing stopped in Kentucky, it was either turn him out or bring him home and we wanted to bring him home. That horse (Bay Muzik) has a lot of speed and he showed it.  My other horse Captain Scotty tracked him and I thought for a second he was going to win it but then Texas Wedge got jostled around, he broke super sharp and we didn’t want him that close. Flavien did a great job as always and got him to settle and made that run.” NOTES: The winning owners are Altamira Racing Stable, Rafter JR Ranch LLC, STD Racing Stable and Miller, A.last_img read more

It took Fabregas 293 matches to achieve 100 assists, 74 matches sooner than second-place Ryan Giggs who needed 367 appearances.“I’m not the fastest, I’m not the strongest, I’m not the most flexible, I don’t jump high,” said the former Arsenal midfielder.“But to achieve this record in my career is one of the proudest things in my job, because it is my job and I did it well.”Earning himself a Guinness World Record is nothing new to the Spaniard. The midfielder, appearing alongside regular team captain and former England and Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp, became the joint holder of ‘The most volley passes in 30 seconds by a pair’ with 15 successful passes.last_img read more
