The anticipated showdown between Huntsville and Downbytheseaside emerged in the stretch of the $600,000 Breeders Crown 2-Year-Old Colt Pace, and Huntsville proved better, putting away Downbytheseasides bid and kicking away to win in 1:49 1/5, a new track record and just a fifth of a second off the world record that he co-holds.Boogie Shuffle (Scott Zeron) got to the lead early and cut the opening quarter in 26-3/5, but Downbytheseaside (David Miller) and Huntsville (Tim Tetrick) had both overhauled him on the way to the 54-1/5 half. Huntsville went on to reach three-quarters in 1:22, turning away a first-over attempt by Filibuster Hanover (Brett Miller) and setting the stage for the stretch clash.Downbytheseaside angled out before the eighth pole and looked to have pace, but Tetrick called on Huntsville for his best, and the colt responded, fending off Downbytheseaside and then pulling clear to win by about two lengths. Miso Fast (Matt Kakaley) was up for third, followed by Normandy Beach (Corey Callahan) and Boogie Shuffle.Around the last turn I said well well separate the men from the boys, and he was the man, said winning trainer, co-owner, and breeder Ray Schnittker. Thats why we race, to see whos going to win.Huntsville, a colt by Somebeachsomewhere, is owned by Schnittker, Charles Iannazzo, Ted Gewertz, and Steven Arnold. Schnittker and Iannazzo also bred Huntsville, who now has seven wins from ten starts and earnings of $603,234. Hes the fourth foal out of the Western Hanover mare Wild West Show, making him a full brother to Stevensville ($429,989) and Cowboy Terrier ($336,365). The 4-5 choice, Huntsville paid $3.60 to win.Schnittker indicated that Huntsville will be heading to Canada to race in the Governors Cup at Woodbine, and that will be his final engagement of the season.He showed how good he is, added Tetrick in speaking with Ken Weingartner from Harness Racing Communications. He made a really bold move down the backside. I didnt know if Dave was going to let me go, or how far he was going to string me out, but he showed how tough he is. At the top of the lane he fought hard and opened up down by the wire. I was really impressed with his effort.Hes done nothing wrong. The couple times hes gotten beat, he was second. Hes never gone a bad race yet. Hes really matured into a good horse. I really thought he had enough speed the first time I sat behind him. But he had a few manner issues and hes really grown up. Rays done a great job with him. Hes really come a long way. [url=http://www.customyankeesjersey.com/custom-joe-girardi-jersey-large-914i.html]Joe Girardi Jersey[/url] . JOHNS, N.

Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half. Tomas Rosickys chip made it 3-0 before half time at Emirates Stadium, while defender Laurent Koscielny scored an unmarked header in the second half.

[url=http://www.customyankeesjersey.com/custom-brett-gardner-jersey-large-1324i.html]Brett Gardner Jersey[/url] . The giant slalom world champion slipped during her first run in the morning, landing on her back and then twisting forward before getting her leg caught in the protective material on the side of the slope. [url=http://www.customyankeesjersey.com/]Custom Yankees Jerseys[/url] . Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek defeated Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (4) on the indoor hard-court at Belgrade Arena. The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1. Serena Williams dominating third-round victory at the US Open was notable for a new career milestone: 307 Grand Slam wins.Williams 6-2, 6-1 win over 47th-ranked Johanna Larsson of Sweden improved her major-tournament mark to 307-42, putting her one win up on Martina Navratilova among women and tying Roger Federer among all players in the Open era.Appearing in a day match for the first time at this years tournament in New York, Williams wore a new white outfit that made a fashion statement with bold, pink sleeves. In her postmatch interview, she called them her Wonder Woman sleeves.I feel this design, in particular, really is kind of like a superhero design, Williams said. Like a really powerful, strong character that is strong, but yet isnt afraid to be soft at the same time.Williams lived up to that nickname, with no sign of a right shoulder problem that had hampered her leading into the tournament.Definitely feels solid, Williams said.Williams reached 121 mph on a serve. She had a half-dozen aces, bringing her total this week to 31. She faced only one break point -- her first of the tournament -- and saved it. She smacked seven return winners. She compiled a 24-5 total edge in winners in a match that lasted just one hour.Tennis-wise, I think it was very satisfying in all aspects. Its not perfect, of course, said her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou. But for someone who didnt play much matches in the last two months, I think shes competitive.Now theres an understatement.There is no pain. Maybe she feels a little. I dont know; Im not in her shoulder. But I see she plays normal. She serves normal. At practice, she serves the quantity that we usually do, full power, Mouratoglou said. So I dont see any problem. And she doesnt even talk about it. I know its under control now.That sounds like bad news for upcoming opponents, starting with 52nd-ranked Yaroslava Shvedova, who advanced to the round of 16 in New York for the first time by beating Zhang Shuai 6-2, 7-5.Williams is 4-0 against Shvedova, taking eight of nine sets. Shvedova is best known for the first golden set in the Open era, which began in 1968: She won all 24 points of the first set in a victory over Sara Errani at Wimbledon in 2012, one match before a three-set loss to Williams there.Shes a good player. Shes dangerous, Mouraatoglou said about Shvedova.dddddddddddd But I think Serena is even more dangerous.Larsson would probably agree.She was surprised by the variety Williams displayed Saturday, especially with some heavy-spin, high-bouncing strokes.Youre out there, youre trying to find ways to win, Larsson said, but sometimes, its just not happening.Meanwhile, Venus Williams closed in on a US Open rematch against her sister, moving into the fourth round with a 6-1, 6-2 victory over 26th-seeded Laura Siegemund.The No. 6-seeded Williams broke Siegemund six of the eight times she served and won despite producing only 11 winners Saturday night.Venus Williams owns seven Grand Slam titles, including two at Flushing Meadows. At 36, she was the oldest woman in the field.If she and younger sister Serena each win twice more, they would play each other in the semifinals. A year ago, Serena beat Venus in the quarterfinals.Also on the womens side, fifth-seeded Simona Halep smashed her racket in frustration en route to a 6-1, 2-6, 6-4 victory over 34th-ranked Timea Babos.Halep, a semifinalist at Flushing Meadows a year ago, rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the deciding set and appeared to struggle with the power of the big-serving Hungarian, who blasted five aces and 25 total winners.Halep threw down, and apparently cracked, her racket after losing a point late in the final set. It all ended just a few points later when Babos double-faulted on match point.After the match, Halep said she wasnt able to move well because of a back problem. She acknowledged she didnt play her best, saying, I dont know how I came back.Halep, whose best Grand Slam result was a run to the French Open final in 2014, next takes on 11th-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro for a spot in the quarterfinals.Suarez Navarro defeated 20th-seeded Elena Vesnina 6-4, 6-3, the third time she has reached the fourth round or better at Flushing Meadows.Her best result was a quarterfinal run in 2013, losing to eventual champion Serena Williams.Mondays other fourth-round womens matchups will be No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska vs. Ana Konjuh, and No. 10 Karolina Pliskova against Venus Williams.?The Associated Press contributed to this report.?
