ARCADIA, Calif. Duncan Keith Blackhawks Jersey . -- Gary Stevens had never won the $5 million Breeders Cup Classic in his long career. Kathy Ritvo came close a year ago with Mucho Macho Man only to settle for second. The veteran jockey and the trainer who got another chance at life after a heart transplant in 2008 teamed up with the hard-knocking horse to win by a whisker Saturday. Mucho Macho Man edged Will Take Charge in a photo finish decided by a nose, making Ritvo the first female trainer to win North Americas richest race at a Breeders Cup that began tragically with the death of a horse in the first race. "I didnt know the photo was as close as it was," said Stevens, who was 0-for-14 in the Classic. Stevens capped his comeback at 50 in stellar fashion, surviving a photo finish in the Classic after winning the $2 million Distaff with Beholder on Friday for a sweep of the biggest races at the two-day world championships at Santa Anita. Ritvo became the fifth female trainer to win a Breeders Cup race and got to celebrate a year after seeing Mucho Macho Man finish second by a half-length to winner Fort Larned. "Thrilling," she said. First, though, Ritvo had to sweat out the results. Mucho Macho Man stretched his neck to hold off Will Take Charge, trained by 78-year-old Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas. "I was just hoping he got it," Ritvo said. "When I saw Gary shake his stick, I was confident. He ran a fantastic race." Game On Dude, the 8-5 favourite who was 5-0 this year, finished ninth on his home track for trainer Bob Baffert and co-owner Joe Torre, the retired Dodgers and Yankees manager. Baffert had an up-and-down day. His filly, Secret Compass, broke her leg in the opening Juvenile Fillies race and had to be euthanized. Then he won two races before Game On Dude lost as the favourite for the second straight year. "When I saw him going real fast on the backstretch, I knew I was in trouble," he said. "Then when Mike (Smith) asked him, there was nothing there. You always feel bad when you get beat, but I feel worse for the horse." Fort Larned wound up fourth. Mucho Macho Man ran 1 1/4 miles in 2:00.72 and paid $10, $4.60 and $3.60 as the 4-1 second choice. The victory likely earned him champion older male honours and may get him consideration for Horse of the Year honours, which Game On Dude could have wrapped up with a win. Current Horse of the Year Wise Dan repeated in the $2 million Mile, winning by three-quarters of a length under Jose Lezcano, a late replacement for Velazquez. He paid $3.60 to win as the 4-5 favourite. Will Take Charge returned $7.20 and $4.80. "Its just a heartbreak that he lost," said Lukas, who won his only Classic in 1999 with Cat Thief. "He did everything right. The jump after the wire we got him." Declaration of War was another head back in third and paid $4.80 to show. Stevens and Mucho Macho Man started moving on the outside around the stretch turn and went after the leaders. They got in front coming out of the turn for home, with Stevens urging the 5-year-old Mucho Macho Man on with a right-handed whip. "They give me a free roll around the far turn," he said. "I think that might have been the winning move." Ritvo, a 44-year-old mother of two, waited six months for a new heart in 2008. Mucho Macho Man first put her in the national spotlight two years ago when he ran in all three Triple Crown races, including third in the Kentucky Derby. "Kathy Ritvo is one of the most underrated trainers in the thoroughbred industry," said Finn Green, racing manager for Mucho Macho Mans owners Dean and Patti Reeves. Lukas put Stevens on Oxbow in the Preakness in May, and they won. "Gary is riding in a zone," the trainer said. "I think we jump-started him in the Preakness pretty good." Last Gunfighter was fifth, followed by Palace Malice, Paynter (trained by Baffert), Flat Out, Game On Dude, Moreno and Planteur. The 30th Breeders Cup got off to a troubling start, with a rare disqualification in the opening race and Secret Compass euthanized because of a broken leg. The $2 million Juvenile Fillies went from strange to tragic over several minutes. The DQ was announced after a green screen went up in a spot approaching the final turn to shield injured Secret Compass from the crowd. "When you lose a horse like that, it just took all the wind out of our sails," Baffert said. "Ive never had something like that happen on a big day. Were all still in shock." John Velazquez, who rode Secret Compass, had emergency surgery to remove his spleen after internal bleeding was discovered shortly before he was to be released from a Pasadena hospital. Ria Antonia finished second but was declared the winner of the 1 1/16-mile race after Shes a Tiger was disqualified by the stewards. They ruled that Shes a Tiger and Stevens drifted out late, bumped Ria Antonia and Javier Castellano, slowing her momentum. It was the first DQ of a winner since the inaugural 1984 Juvenile Fillies race in which Frans Valentine won and later was placed 10th. "This is heartbreaking," said Jeff Bonde, who trains Shes a Tiger. Sent off at 32-1 odds, Ria Antonia paid $66.60, $29.80 and $17.40. The winning time was 1:43.02 and the margin was a nose. Shes a Tiger returned $6.40 and $4.80. Rosalind paid $6.80 to show. Running third at the time, Secret Compass front legs collapsed, slamming Velazquez hard into the dirt. Bafferts 2-year-old filly was euthanized after sustaining a lateral condylar fracture, according to on-call veterinarian Dr. Wayne McIlwraith. "It is the worst type of injury we get, unfortunately," he said. Velazquez was to ride in all nine Breeders Cup races, but he was replaced by other jockeys. Baffert was smiling later when 10-1 shot New Years Day rallied on the rail to win the $2 million Juvenile by 1 1/4 lengths. The colt paid $23 to win, with jockey Martin Garcia earning his first Cup victory. But the trainers emotions were raw. "Just the win is exciting, but in the back of my mind, Im thinking about that filly," he said. Baffert and Garcia also teamed to win the $1.5 million Sprint by a neck with Secret Circle. Baffert earned his third win in the Juvenile, whose winner is typically tagged as the early Kentucky Derby favourite. His other entry, Tap It Rich, finished fifth. Havana, the 5-2 favourite trained by Todd Pletcher, was second. Strong Mandate, trained by Lukas, was third. After the early drama, 3-2 favourite Dank restored order by winning the $2 million Filly & Mare Turf by a half-length over Romantica. Ridden by Ryan Moore, Dank ran 1 1/4 miles in 1:58.73 and paid $5, $3.40 and $2.80. Another favourite, 3-1 Groupie Doll, won the $1 million Filly & Mare Sprint for the second straight year by a half-length. Mizdirection defended her title in the $1 million Turf Sprint for co-owner Jim Rome, the sports talk host. She ran 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:12.25 under Smith, who extended his record for most Cup wins by a jockey to 20. He won two races on opening day Friday. David Legwand Sabres Jersey . Handzus has been maligned through the postseason, even acknowledging his struggles -- as though its his fault that the Blackhawks frequently pin their second-line centre hopes on a 37-year-old centre who last scored more than 30 points in 2009-2010 -- but he still had the wherewithal to handle a pass in his skates, deke to the backhand and lift the puck over Kings G Jonathan Quick for the game-winner. Bryan Bickell Blackhawks Jersey .com) - The 18th-ranked Miami-Florida Hurricanes go in search of their 10th win of the season, as they entertain the Eastern Kentucky Colonels on Friday night.BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Lingering post-concussion-like headaches didnt prevent Ryan Miller from airing his disappointment Tuesday in the aftermath of being levelled by Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic. The Buffalo Sabres goalie was unhappy with the NHLs decision not to discipline Lucic, who bowled over Miller in the first period of Buffalos 6-2 loss at Boston on Saturday. "Im not going to be happy about it, but Im not going to speak out against it," he said. "Were going to move forward and were going to play some hockey. And hopefully, Im playing hockey sooner than later." And Miller didnt buy Lucics explanation that the forward couldnt avoid a collision that was so hard that it knocked off Millers mask. "I think he said what he had to say to avoid being suspended," Miller said, referring to Lucic having a hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan on Monday. "Its the NHL, man. The guy can skate. He can stop. He can turn. He can pick his head up." Pausing and then adding with a laugh, Miller said: "If he didnt see me then, I dont even know how that could happen." In speaking with reporters for the first time since being diagnosed with a concussion and whiplash on Sunday, Miller chose his words carefully during a nine-minute interview after he sat out practice. Miller provided no timetable for when he might be able to play, saying hes still feeling soreness in his neck and experiencing post-concussion-like symptoms. Miller was hurt 14 minutes into the first period when he skated out to the right circle to play a loose puck that Lucic was attempting to chase down when the two collided. Lucic was issued a two-minute minor for charging. Saying he felt fine after the hit, Miller continued playing through the end of the second period when he began experiencing tightness in his neck and fatigue. Backup Jhonas Enroth took over at the start of the third period. The 2010 Vezina Trophy winner did stick around following the game to speak to the media, during which he called Lucic "gutless." Miller revealed that he and the team went ahead with announcing he had a concussion in a bid to make a case that Lucic should be suspended. Sabres general manager Darcy Regier was expected to raise the issue of protecting goalies at league meetings being held in Toronto on Tuesday. This is the second time Miller has sustained a concussion in eight months. HHe missed four games in March after being struck by shots to the mask in consecutive games. Phil Esposito Bruins Jersey. Miller also missed 13 games late in the 2008-09 season with an ankle injury, which he hurt while being upended behind his net by then-New York Rangers forward Scott Gomez. Shanahan defended his ruling on Monday night, and called it "irresponsible" for the Sabres to suggest that its open season on goalies. The Sabres didnt escape criticism either for their failure to rally to Millers defence following Lucics hit. Following the game, Lucic expressed surprised that the Sabres didnt attempt to get retribution during the game. Miller called the criticism unwarranted. "Lucics a tough guy. what are you going to do, try to hack him, spear him, cheap-shot him? Then youre no better than he is," Miller said. "I try to have their backs. I trust they have mine, so thats the end of that one." The Sabres acknowledged a team meeting was held a day later in Montreal to discuss how they reacted to Miller getting hit. "Weve discussed this as players, weve discussed it as a team and we want to move forward," captain Jason Pominville said. "What was said was said, and weve got to look forward to whats ahead of us and not focus on whats behind us." The Sabres bounced back by overcoming a 2-0 third-period deficit in a 3-2 shootout win over the Canadiens on Monday night. It was their fifth win in six games and pushed them into first place in the Northeast Division. It was a game in which defenceman Tyler Myers -- the NHLs 2010 rookie of the year -- was a healthy scratch for the first time in his career. He was relegated to the press box mostly because of his sloppy play: Myers has only four assists in 16 games, and has been on the ice for seven goals against in his previous four outings. Myers was also on the ice when Miller was bowled over, and among the players who failed to go after Lucic. "Weve handled it as a team and it wont happen again," Myers said. NOTES: Coach Lindy Ruff said hes not made a decision on whether Myers will return Wednesday, when the Sabres host New Jersey. ... LW Jochen Hecht has resumed practising, but theres no timetable for his return. Hes been out since sustaining a concussion in training camp in September. ... C Cody McCormicks status is uncertain after he sustained an undisclosed injury against Montreal. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
