TORONTO —Wise Dan captured the Grade 1 $1-million Ricoh Woodbine Mile on
Sunday. Ryan Tannehill Orange Jersey . The
five-year-old Kentucky-bred, the 1/2 favourite, posted a winning time of 1:34.0
to earn the $600,000 winners share on a firm E.P. Taylor turf course.
Conditioner Charles Lopresti became the first trainer to win consecutive
Woodbine Mile events while jockey John Velazquez won this race for a record
third time. Hunters Bay, a 13-1 longshot ridden by Emma-Jayne Wilson, was second
while British-bred Cityscape took third in the nine-horse field. With the win,
Wise Dan receives an all-expenses paid berth into the Breeders Cup Mile, which
will be run Nov. 3 at Santa Anita in Arcadia, Calif. Earlier, Jamie Spencer rode
Irish-bred Barefoot Lady to the win in the $300,000 Canadian Stakes, a 1
1/8-mile turf event. The 7-1 pick won the race in 1:45.89, finishing ahead of
All Star Heart and Stars to Shine. Spencer also rode Wigmore Hall, another
Irish-bred, to a successful title defence in the $500,000 Northern Dancer
Stakes, running the 1 1/2-mile turf race in 2:28.28. Al Khali was second in the
eight-horse field while British-bred Forte Dei Marmi was third. It was also a
memorable afternoon for Wilson. The 31-year-old native of Brampton, Ont., who
won the 07 Queens Plate aboard Mike Fox, earned her 1,000th career victory
aboard Dwildcat Gold in the first race on the Woodbine card. She registered her
first win with Ali Olah on Aug. 28, 2004 at For Erie. Anthony Fasano Jersey . Vick has not
practised since breaking two ribs during the Eagles loss to the Cardinals on
Sunday in Philadelphia. The Eagles listed him Friday as questionable for their
nationally televised game against the Giants at MetLife Stadium in East
Rutherford on Sunday night. Ryan Tannehill Camo Jersey .6 seconds left in
regulation lifted the Maryland Terrapins to a 75-74 win over the College of
Charleston in the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Coaches vs. http://www.dolphinsteamstore.com/koa-misi-jerseys
. Chantelle Eberle and Dean Hicke of Regina stormed out to an early 7-0 lead and
needed only seven ends to complete the win at the Milli Piyango Curling Arena.
Ryan Tannehill Youth Jersey . The 19th-seeded
Thornhill, Ont., native, will face a true clay test in the next round when he
plays Argentinas Juan Monaco after the 13th seed defeated Czech Lukas Rosol 7-6
(4), 6-0, 7-6 (5). Cameron Wake Womens Jersey . PETERSBURG,
Fla.Its been a busy few weeks in the NBA, with the Draft, free-agency and
trades. The League does a terrific job of keeping itself in the news year-round,
just like the NFL, and it certainly helps business. Here are five quick thoughts
on the NBA.  1. KYLE LOWRY: A nice trade by the Raptors; I like him a whole lot.
A very good defender and floor leader that continues to improve and can be a
capable long-term answer at the point guard spot for them. Good contract value
and will fit in Dwane Caseys system. 2. LANDRY FIELDS: Is he a good fit for
Toronto? Yes! Do I like his contract? No! I understand what they were trying to
do, blocking the Knicks on a sign-and-trade deal with the Suns for Steve Nash.
Only time will tell if they get the proper money and wins in return on his deal.
Solid overall player who will be even better in Toronto in their system.  I
think hes got good upside and hes a winning player.  Hell play good minutes and
be a positive impact guy. There will be a bunch of pressure on him due to his
large salary to elevate his game another notch or two but he can do it. He
better be ready from the jump. They need better play on the wing and with that
money invested, its imperative that he take another step. 3. RAY ALLEN: Good get
for the Heat. Steady and consistent. Wonderful distance shooter who will keep
defenses honest when they double-team Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. An excellent
all-around player who will benefit from playing in an atmosphere of high
expectations. Hes used to the pressure and can handle it. 4. ATLANTIC DIVISION:
With the Brooklyn Nets keeping Deron Williams and Gerald Wallace and the tradee
for Joe Johnson, will they close the deal and get Dwight Howard? Wow, it would
be an amazing summer. Jason Taylor Jersey. For Raptors fans, the
team will be improved but the big issue is you have to play the Nets, Celtics,
Knicks and 76ers four times each. Theyll all be pretty good.  Not easy to get
wins and get into the playoffs. If Howard shows up in the Division, the stakes
will be higher and GMs will have to keep up. I see the Hawks and Magic (both
playoff teams last year) to name a few taking steps back in the Eastern
Conference. Wiggle room to sneak in but the Conference overall is improving and
the Atlantic could be a bear to play in.  You better win the games youre favored
to win any time you get them. 5. LUXURY TAX: The whole purpose of the lockout
was to make sure all 30 owners turned a profit and to equalize the playing field
as much as they could without a hard cap. The more punitive tax will gradually
come into play next summer and only time will tell how many teams are willing to
pay big money on a tax bill and how it impacts balance. I will tell you one
thing; when the you know what truly hits the fan, commissioner David Stern will
be retired and it will be the issue that the new boss will have to try to
convince the majority of owners to stay the course instead of opting out of this
new CBA early before it expires in nine years. Some owners will just accept
things as long as they turn a profit, but I see many more saying enough is
enough if we have 4-5 super teams and the rest on the outside looking in.  The
teeth that the new luxury tax has is critical to the interest in the game in the
non-destination cities.   ’ ’ ’
