HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. Phil Jones Manchester Jersey . -- Rated R Superstar became a graded stakes winner for the first time while handing the odds-on favorite Awesome Banner his first sprint setback in five tries when he rallied from off the pace to a convincing 3-1/4-length triumph in Saturdays Grade 3, $150,000 Carry Back Stakes at Gulfstream Park.With Cornelio Velasquez aboard, Rated R Superstar was reserved at the rear of the pack in the run down the backstretch while the 2-5 Awesome Banner, as expected, controlled the pace through quick splits of 22.37 and 44.59 seconds for the opening half-mile. Rated R Superstar came wide with his bid rallying into the stretch and readily wore down the tiring leader despite drifting at the end.Awesome Banner, who had won his first four sprint starts by a combined margin of 22 lengths including the Grade 2 Swale and Grade 3 Hutcheson here earlier this year, appeared well in control turning into the stretch with a clear lead, only to shorten stride late and prove no match for the winner. He was easily second-best, finishing six lengths in front of third-place finisher Bullet Gone Astray.The victory was the third in 11 starts for Rated R Superstar, a son of Kodiak Kowboy who was Grade 1-placed around two turns as a 2-year-old. The win also provided some good medicine for trainer Ken McPeek, who was in town but unable to attend the race after becoming ill on the eve of the Carry Back.Rated R Superstar completed seven furlongs over a track upgraded from good to fast just prior to the race in 1:22.09. He paid $7.40.Im actually in town but Ive got a stomach virus, McPeek said by phone immediately after the race. I was up all night. I guess I got it on the airplane. Im extremely dehydrated.McPeek said he was hoping to get some help with the pace with Awesome Banner to set up Rated R Superstars late surge.It looked like they did [press the 1] a little bit and watching the race, I thought he could run him down, said McPeek. Cornelio knew the horse a little from the start at Turfway and he did a great job.McPeek said Rated R Superstar would likely make his next start in the seven-furlong, Grade 1 Kings Bishop next month at Saratoga.Dearest delivers in AzaleaDearest left little doubt shes the queen of the local 3-year-old filly sprint division after cruising to a 1-1/2-length victory over the 28-1 Smartly Agree in the $100,000 Azalea. The pacesetting Ballet Diva finished third.The win was the fourth in five starts for Dearest, a daughter of Midshipman whose only setback came at the hands of Cathryn Sophia in the Grade 2 Davona Dale going a mile this past winter.Dearest covered seven furlongs over a good track in 1:22.81 and paid $2.40. She was ridden to victory by Emisael Jaramillo for Gelfenstein Farm and trainer Gilberto Zerpa.Three Rules dominates BirdonthewireThree Rules followed up his easy debut victory with an even more impressive performance in his stakes debut, rallying from just off the pace to a dominant five-length victory over the 73-1 outsider Sonido in the $75,000 Birdonthewire for 2-year-olds. The pacesetter Francesco Appeal finished third.Three Rules, a son of Gone Astray, is owned by his breeder, Shade Tree Thoroughbreds Inc. and was ridden to victory, as he was in his previous start, by Velasquez.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Jersey . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU. . -- The goal posts lying flat on the field, Arizonas fans lingered on the field, congregating around the locker room entrance nearly 30 minutes after rushing out of the stands. LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraskas Caleb Lightbourn has taken the punting job he didnt want yet and run with it.Lightbourn expected to spend this season as the understudy to one of the nations best punters in Sam Foltz. But Foltz was killed in a car crash in Wisconsin in July, and Lightbourn was named his successor following a five-day competition in preseason practice.After up-and-down performances the first two games, Lightbourn was named Big Ten freshman of the week for shutting down Oregons powerful return game in last weeks 35-32 victory in Lincoln.You could always see the upside with this kid, special teams coach Bruce Read said. I thought if we could play him, he could get better and better. He has a great mindset, hes a very determined young man, hes a pretty mature kid. He does a nice job of being able to focus and block out the distractions.There have been lots of distractions.Foltz was another in a long line of small-town kids who walked on at Nebraska and made it big. He was beloved by fans, and his death continues to be mourned statewide and throughout the college football community.Lightbourn, from Washougal, Washington, is the first Nebraska punter since 1995 to come in on scholarship, so there were going to be high expectations no matter when he made his debut. But the circumstances for his first appearance would be almost unfathomable for any freshman.It came on the first series in the opener against Fresno State. Before he jogged onto the field, Nebraska lined up in a 10-man formation in an emotional tribute to Foltz.I almost came to tears when I was going out on the field because it was such a special moment, said Lightbourn, whose 29-yard punt was not returned. I was just glad to get the ball off and get my college career rolling, and doing it for Sam.Lightbourn struggled with the swirling wind the next week against Wyoming, and he made an ill-advised decision when he took off running on a fourth-and-10 and was stopped well short of a first down.But on a near-perfect afternoon against Oregon, Lightbourn averaged 47.2 yards on his five punts. His last three were all inside the Oregon 20, including one at the 3. The Ducks Charles Nelson, who entered the game ranked 11th nationally in punt returns, never got an opportunity to run one back. Luke Shaw Manchester Jersey. I got a lot more confidence through that game and that experience, Lightbourn said.Lightbourn actually was a better kicker than punter in high school, said Read, who worked with him at Oregon State summer camps for three years before coming with coach Mike Riley to Nebraska. Lightbourn had a knee injury his senior year at Camas High, and he received no offers from any school except Nebraska.The 6-foot-3 Lightbourn is listed at 220 pounds, but Read said hes closer to 240. His father, Edgar Lightbourn, was an elite high jumper. His mother, Marjie Van Der Laan, was a nationally ranked rower in high school.He gets his power from her. He gets his explosion from his dad, Read said. He never really punted all that much. Knowing the bloodlines, and having the history of working with him behind the scenes, we took a shot at him. We were confident he could be a real good player someday. We just didnt know when.Read said Lightbourn should excel in the Big Ten, where cold and strong winds become bigger factors as the season progresses.Guys who dont have pop arent able to deal with this conference very well, so you need big, powerful guys, which is a reason he was a real fit for us, Read said. I figured with a year, we could work and groom him into being that guy. It just happened to come on a lot faster than we thought.Lightbourn arrived at Nebraska in June with the plan to take a redshirt year and learn from Foltz. The two worked together when time allowed, and Lightbourn sensed Foltz taking him under his wing.He told me he wanted me to do the best I possibly can. He told me right before he went to Wisconsin, a few days before that, to kick how you know how to kick and dont let anything influence you too tremendously, Lightbourn said. I think going out there and doing the best I possibly can is what would make him happy.---Online:AP college football website: Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
