David Hayes is looking to consolidate the future of the Lindsay Park empire with plans for a third training centre. Nike Air Max Vendita ..Hayes, who trains in partnership with his son Ben and nephew Tom Dabernig, has set up a country training base at Euroa complemented by a metropolitan base at Flemington.With some uncertainty over the future of training at Flemington in the years ahead, Lindsay Park has bought two stabling plots at the Pakenham Racing Clubs complex at Tynong.Hayes says there are no immediate plans to build on the plots which, when combined, are the size of Lindsay Parks Flemington operation.He said establishing new stables at Pakenham would fit in perfectly with what the stable already has at Euroa and Flemington.Theres going to be 40 or 50 meetings a season at Pakenham, Hayes said.It makes perfect sense to have a stable here, especially with the number of night meetings.Cranbourne is not far away and it is as strong as anything. Morningtons not far away either and Sales just down the road.Its a logical place to set up and youre still not far from the city.The training facilities will only improve and theyre clearly going to be racing here more and more and theyve got the room to grow with the amenities.The view is well build the facility here in time and watch the place grow and flourish.Its a very exciting place.Hayes said the complex was still in its infancy but would be a benefit to the industry when complete.There are plans to extend the 1000m chute on the turf track to include a 1200m start which will in turn take pressure off the home turn.And there are also plans to create a grass training track inside the synthetic track which currently holds the majority of Pakenhams meetings.The Lindsay Park operation had a day out at Saturdays Pakenham Cup meeting winning four races including the days feature with Pilote Dessai.Every horse gets their chance here and its only going to get better, Hayes said.

At last years U.S. Open, she became the first British woman since 1991 to reach the fourth round there. Thanks to a 1-6, 7-5, 6-3 comeback victory Saturday over Marina Erakovic of New Zealand, a match that included a crucial overturned call, Robson is now the first British woman since 1998 to make it that far at Wimbledon. And shes also assured of becoming the first British woman since 1987 -- more than a quarter-century ago -- to climb into the top 30 in the WTA rankings. Robson, a lefty with a fairly big serve who beat Kim Clijsters in the final match of the four-time major champions career, is nonplussed by it all. "I didnt even know about it until you (told) me," Robson said when asked about the significance of some of her milestones. "I just focus on, you know, playing my match, things like that. Things that actually matter." And she noted: "I dont go into the match thinking, If I win this, Im going to be top-30." Needless to say, the attention paid to her by the locals is increasing: Photos of Robson were all over the front pages of Saturdays newspapers, and she was thrilled with the vocal support she heard on Court 2 against Erakovic. The spectators got so loud that their roars could be heard across the grounds at Centre Court. "I dont think they had much to support in the first set," Robson joked, "but they were amazing. I thought they helped a lot." That sort of focus and backing only will increase in a place desperate for tennis success; the last British woman to win Wimbledon was Virginia Wade in 1977. Thats nothing, of course, compared to the wait since 1936 for a male champion at the All England Club, but its enough to get everyone around here rather excited about Robson. "Its good to do well, especially at Wimbledon," said Robson, currently ranked 38th. "But Im going to be playing for, like, another 10 years, so its all bonuses for now." Playing for a second day in a row, Robson did not start well. Not at all. "I was getting my butt kicked, basically," Robson said. "I was really struggling to return her serrve. Nike Air Max Offerta. She was playing really well. So I just thought: Just going to try as best as I can, work as hard as possible and just stick with it until she starts to get nervous -- which is what happened." Indeed, the 71st-ranked Erakovic, who was trying to become the first woman from New Zealand to get to Wimbledons fourth round since 1959, was up a set and a break and served for the match at 5-4 in the second. But she set up a break point with one of her eight double-faults, and Robson pulled even at 5-all. "I think anyone would be tightening up serving for the match in that situation. And (I) knew that she hadnt made the fourth round of a Slam. That was what I was told," said Robson, who eliminated 10th-seeded Maria Kirilenko in her opening match. "So I kind of just tried to put the pressure on her serve, and she made a couple of double-faults, which helped me. But I knew that that was my chance to get in her head a little bit, and thats what I did." After holding to go up 6-5, Robson got a set point when Erakovic double-faulted to make it 30-40. Then came a key moment. Robson barely got a return back that looped high and just caught the edge of a line, but was called out before Erakovic finished hitting what would have been a winner. Robson successfully challenged the "out" ruling, the point was replayed, and Erakovic double-faulted yet again to cede the set. From there, Robson took complete control, building a 4-0 lead in the third set. After Wimbledons traditional day of rest on the middle Sunday, Robson moves on to Week 2 at Wimbledon. On Monday, she will face 46th-ranked Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, a four-time major quarterfinalist who beat 126th-ranked wild-card entry Alison Riske of the United States 6-2, 6-3. "Its now my second time in the second week of a Slam, so thats pretty cool. Except at the U.S. Open, I played on the Sunday, so it didnt quite feel like a second week," Robson said, "and my brother said it didnt count." Well, as far as all of a certain country is concerned, this one most certainly will count. And if Robson wins again, she will be the first British woman since Jo Durie in 1984 to reach the quarterfinals at Wimbledon -- or any Grand Slam tournament. ' ' '
