SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Sven Bender Jersey .Y. -- What everybody hoped would be a storybook ending to an incredible day of racing at Saratoga on Saturday didnt quite turn out as most had expected, with Lady Elis comeback in the Grade 2 Ballston Spa spoiled by an unlikely nemesis, the 27-1 Strike Charmer.Lady Eli came into the Ballston Spa off nearly a 14-month layoff. She developed laminitis in both front feet shortly after running her record to 6 for 6 with a victory in the Grade 1 Belmont Oaks Invitational in July 2015. To say she defied the odds just making it back to the races at all would be an understatement. But in the end, the combination of the long layoff and a big performance by Strike Charmer proved just a bit too much to overcome.Strike Charmer benefitted from a fast pace and a perfectly judged ride by Junior Alvarado, who rated her at the rear of the pack and well off the pace set by Lady Elis stablemate Sympathy. Miss Temple City was the first to challenge the leader, taking command on the second turn of the 1-1/16-mile turf race with both Lady Eli and Strike Charmer on the move.Lady Eli rallied wide off the final turn and forged to a short advantage inside the eighth pole. Alvarado followed Ladi Eli while keeping Strike Charmer widest of all into the stretch. Lady Eli continued on gamely, but Strike Charmer finished best of all out past the center of the track to register a three-quarter-length decision while setting a stakes record of 1:38.77 over the firm turf.Strike Charmer, a Grade 3 winner earlier in the season, was coming off a fifth-place finish while beaten less than two lengths in the Grade 1 Diana earlier in the meet. She paid $57.50.I didnt think theyd go that fast early, but we knew where we needed to be with the pace going that way, said Mark Hennig, who trains the homebred Strike Charmer for the Courtlandt Farm of owners Donald and Donna Adam. Junior got off of her last time and said she was making up ground and wasnt really extending herself. So he felt like having learned something from riding her once, that he would be wide and kind of sit. Lady Eli took the overland route and I thought he did a great job hiding out behind her and letting her pounce, and we were fortunate enough to run her down today.Hennig said defeating a filly of Lady Elis reputation made winning a race like the Ballston Spa all the more special.Its an amazing story that shes come back from what she has, said Hennig. Any time that happens, we all feel it in the industry, but we dont mind raining on her parade today.Trainer Chad Brown was humble in defeat following Lady Elis first setback in seven career starts.Im disappointed that she got beat, but Im happy shes back to the races, said Brown. It looked like she got a little tired that last part. She made a big move there on the turn into a wicked pace and it just took a little too much out of her. We could have played it safe and just retired her. But shes perfectly sound, she has a huge following, and she acted like she wanted to run.Shes going to move forward and build off this, and were going to work our way to the Breeders Cup.

PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.dortmundfcstore.com/...sia-dortmund-jersey/ . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night. METAIRIE, La. -- Help has arrived for the New Orleans Saints 31st-ranked defense.First-round draft pick Sheldon Rankins returned to practice Wednesday and has been designated as the Saints one player to return from injured reserve this season.The rookie defensive tackle was placed on IR in Week 1 after he suffered a broken left fibula during training camp. Wednesday was the first day he was eligible to return under NFL rules. The earliest Rankins can return to a game is Week 9 at the San Francisco 49ers.Rankins said he went through a few individual drills as he slowly increases his workload. And he said he thinks a Week 9 return to game action is realistic.Barring any setbacks, I think were on schedule for that time frame. But Im gonna take it day by day and let God handle the rest, Rankins said.Rankins admitted there would be some rust but said he began running a few weeks ago and that his weight is right where he feels most comfortable at 305 pounds.I think a couple weeks [of practicing before playing] is fine, Rankins said. I think in a sense as a football player, youve been doing it for so long you kind of have some semblance of what youre doing out there. But timing is everything. When Im rushing the passer, when I throw my hands or when I take this step to come inside and different things like that. And conditioning -- being able to run to the ball, play hhard, things like that. Roman Burki Jersey. I think those are the real things these few weeks are gonna allow me to do and be a big help for me.Rankins described the past two weeks as quiet and said it felt great to be around his teammates, cutting up and laughing on the practice field. He said it also felt great to do things like diving into a tackling dummy.Yeah, I definitely was kind of anxious to go through that, Rankins said. Little things like tackling drills and hitting sleds and football movements was fun for me today, just to see how my body would react to it, how my leg would react to it. It was good for me.The Saints (2-3) could use Rankins. The defense ranks 31st in the NFL with 419.4 yards allowed per game. And they have allowed the most points in the league at 33.6 per game.The 6-foot-2, 305-pound Rankins is a disruptive force up the middle who should help both the pass rush and the run defense. Rankins had 14 sacks and 26.5 tackles for loss over his final two years at Louisville before New Orleans drafted him with the No. 12 pick.The Saints also are hoping to get No. 1 cornerback Delvin Breaux back soon from his own broken left fibula that he suffered in Week 1. Its not clear yet whether Breaux will resume practicing this week.
