ong in any way; I anticipated he would rate fine and wasnt surprised that he did, Pletcher said.Star Empire

SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium -- After a further power unit change ahead of final practice, Lewis Hamiltons grid penalty for the Belgian Grand Prix has hit 55 places, ensuring he will start from the last row of the grid in Sundays race. .After Hamilton suffered two turbo and MGU-H failures earlier this season, it became inevitable he would have to take a penalty at some point over the remaining races. Mercedes chose to take the grid drop at this weekends Belgian Grand Prix to coincide with an engine update, allowing Hamilton to stock up on updated components rather than old-spec versions.Over the course of the weekend Mercedes has fitted an updated power unit to Hamiltons car ahead of each practice session, creating a pool of new components to be used over the remaining nine races of the season. The power unit changes mean Hamilton has now used eight turbochargers and eight MGU-Hs this year and six internal combustion engines and MGU-Ks, exceeding his season-long quota of five for each component.Under Formula Ones complex engine penalty regulations (see sidebar), the changes equate to a 55-place grid drop, which means Hamilton will start from the back row, most likely joined by McLarens Fernando Alonso, who has a 35-place grid drop of his own. Hamilton is not expected to take part in qualifying beyond Q1 in order to save fresh sets of tyres for the race.Therefore, Hamilton will have to fight back through the field in Sundays race in the hope of minimising the damage teammate Nico Rosberg can cause to his championship lead. The world champion believes there are seven or eight potential overtaking opportunities at Spa-Francorchamps, but said it will become increasingly difficult to pass anywhere other than Les Combes once he comes across the more competitive cars at the front of the field.On Sunday I might have a chance to overtake in Turn 1 [La Source], maybe, but its unlikely anyone will overtake there because it screws up the long straights, so most people will only overtake into Turn 5 [Les Combes] down the back straight.What Im saying is that there are other places you could overtake if the car in front is struggling, but thats unlikely as you get further up the grid. Its not really a good track for overtaking, I think. .C. -- Calgarys Kevin Koe did it the hard way again. . -- New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis is retiring after a 16-year career to become the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy. . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. ELMONT, N.Y. -- Theory made a successful return to the races Saturday, winning the Grade 3, $200,000 Futurity at Belmont Park by 3-1/2 lengths in a performance that could propel him to the Breeders Cup Juvenile in three weeks at Santa Anita.Making his first start since winning his debut at Saratoga on July 30, Theory, the 1-5 favorite, chased the pacesetting Moves Like Ali through a quarter-mile in 22.62 seconds, a half in 45.35, and five-eighths in 57.40 before switching leads and taking over inside the eighth pole.Theory ($2.70) widened his advantage in the final sixteenth while covering six furlongs in 1:09.91. He wasnt done yet, as he galloped out another quarter of a mile under Javier Castellano.He galloped out steady and strong; thats what made me more excited. When you ask him, he responded, Castellano said.Trainer Todd Pletcher said the performance gives him and owners WinStar Farm and the China Horse Club plenty of options for the fall, including the Breeders Cup Juvenile on Nov. 5 at Santa Anita. That would mean stretching out from six furlongs to 1-1/16 miles around two turns.With the way he ran, the way he galloped out, and the way he came back, we have to have that discussion, Pletcher said.Theory was an impressive 5-1/2-length winner at Saratoga on July 30 and was pointing to the Grade 1 Hopeful on Sept 3. In late August, Plettcher wasnt happy with the way Theory was training, and the colt was eventually sent back to WinStar Farm. The horse was evaluated, and the only issue was a foot bruise.He was sent back to Pletcher in about two weeks, and the horse breezed four times leading up to this.In his debut, Theory won on the lead. On Saturday, he showed the ability to stalk, pounce, and finish.Hes a very good-minded horse, hes got a great disposition, hes not headstrong in any way; I anticipated he would rate fine and wasnt surprised that he did, Pletcher said.Star Empire rallied for second in the Futurity, a length ahead of Moves Like Ali. The Walk, who stumbled at the break, and Reckling completed the order of finish.Pletcher said he did not ask Castellano for such a lengthy gallop-out.He actually galloped out further than I probably would have told Javier to gallop out, but he hasnt run in a while, Pletcher said. The way he ran today, the way he finished puts us in a position where weve got a lot of options.If his connections decide to skip the Breeders Cup, Theory could be pointed to the Nashua, a one-turn mile at Aqueduct on Nov. 4, or the Kentucky Jockey Club, a two-turn, 1-1/16-mile race at Churchill Downs on Nov. 26. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys CanadaCheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
