three-sixteenths from home from wzh123's blog

Allrounder Moises Henriques knows he is good enough for Test cricket, but he also knows that consistency is the key if he is to fulfil his ambition of a long career in the baggy green. Carlos Pena Jersey . In Sri Lanka, Henriques is soaking up the atmosphere of again being part of Australias Test squad, the first time he has toured with the Test side in more than two years.And while Mitchell Marsh is the established allrounder in Australias Test team, there is a chance Henriques could play on the tour depending on the balance of the attack Australias selectors decide to use. Although Henriques has not played a first-class match since November - his season was ended by a calf injury suffered in the BBL - the selectors took a punt on him for the Sri Lanka tour.Henriques played his only three Tests on Australias most recent Test tour of South Asia, in India in 2013, and his batting on debut hinted at a Test-match temperament. Henriques used his long limbs to reach from the crease and negate Indias spin threat in Chennai, his 68 and 81* making him the only Australian since 1980 to score 50-plus in both innings on debut.However, Henriques failed to reach double figures in either of the Tests that followed, in Hyderabad and Mohali, and picked up only two wickets for the series on pitches that offered little for the pace bowlers. He was dropped for the final Test in Delhi and although he was part of the squad that toured South Africa a year later, he has not played a Test since that Indian series.I hope Ive improved and I hope Ive also learnt about how hard Test cricket is, in terms of backing up day after day, Test after Test, Henriques told reporters in Colombo on Tuesday. You see the likes of Smithy and Davey, how they perform Test after Test and are able to bounce back and just be extremely consistent all the time.Its not just about one good performance or a couple of good performances. Youve got to keep churning them and keep being as good as you can for as long as you can. After one good Test I felt like Id displayed that I was good enough, but just not consistent enough. Thats the biggest thing, is to do it over and over again. I certainly feel like Ive improved as a cricketer and given the opportunity, Id like to think I could do even better than I did then.Although Henriques missed the second half of Australias home season, he had plenty of time to get used to Asian conditions during the IPL, playing all 17 matches in Sunrisers Hyderabads successful campaign. That was followed by a stint training on the special spinning pitch Cricket Australia has developed in Brisbane, and Henriques hopes that preparation will hold him in good stead. Alejandro Palacios Jersey . Now that hes hitting streaking teammates with pin-point passes for easy layups, Love is asserting himself as one of the true superstars in the league. Javier Aquino Jersey . John Lucas, signed as a mentor for rookie Trey Burke, showed he can score if required, scoring 12 points of his 16 points in the second quarter as Utah built an 18-point lead. . Two pressure cooker bombs exploded near the finish line of the April 15 race in an area packed with fans cheering the passing runners. Three people were killed and more than 260 injured, including at least 16 who lost limbs. ELMONT, N.Y. -- After suffering some tough beats, Stallwalkin Dude finally earned his first graded stakes victory, parlaying a perfect trip under Irad Ortiz Jr. to a 1-1/2-length victory in Saturdays Grade 3, $200,000 Bold Ruler Handicap at Belmont Park.The win was not only Stallwalkin Dudes first in a graded event - this was his 10th try in such a race - but the $120,000 first-place purse pushed the 6-year-old geldings career earnings to $1,088,352. Not bad for a horse trainer David Jacobson claimed for $16,000 in September 2014 at Gulfstream Park.Its very rewarding, said Jacobson, who owns the horse along with Head of Plains Partners. I didnt realize he didnt win a graded stakes; he won so many races for us.The Bold Ruler was Stallwalkin Dudes 16th career victory from 46 starts. He has 12 wins from 31 starts and earned $1,008,150 since Jacobson claimed him.Stallwalkin Dude worked out as clean a trip as one would could hope for in an 11-horse field sprinting. He broke alertly, but was quickly taken in hand by Ortiz and settled in fifth position, three to four lengths off the pace set by Green Gratto.Stallwalkin Dude saved ground down the backstretch, tipped three to four wide at the three-eighths pole, took the lead three-sixteenths from home, and was kept to his task as he tired late. Threefiveindia, under Javier Castellano, rallied along the rail to get second by two lengths over Economic Model, the 2-1 favorite. The second- and third-place finishers are both trained by Chad Brown.Following Economic Model in the ordder of finish were, in order, Mylute, Green Gratto, Dannies Deceiver, Amis Flatter, Cadeyrn, Touchofstarquality, Face of Winner, and Farhaan. Guillermo Ochoa Mexico Jersey. . Liberty Holiday was an early scratch while Gentrify was scratched by the stewards on the advice of the track veterinarian at the starting gate.Stallwalkin Dude, by City Place, ran seven furlongs in 1:21.66 and returned $10.80 as the second choice.At the three-eighths pole he wants to go and he just does it on his own, Ortiz said. At the quarter pole, he was moving great, I let him go do his thing. I wait as long as I can and when I asked him he responded pretty good.The win was one of three on the card for Ortiz, who tied Javier Castellano atop the Belmont jockey standings with 47 wins apiece with one day remaining in the fall meet.Though hes at the end of his 6-year-old season, Stallwalkin Dude is as consistent as ever. He entered the Bold Ruler off a second-place finish behind Breeders Cup bound Joking in the Grade 1 Vosburgh.Hes real good right now, Jacobson said. The key to horses like him that love to run and are very sound is go easy in the morning and let them do their running in the afternoon.Jacobson mentioned the Grade 3, $200,000 Fall Highweight at Aqueduct on Thanksgiving as a possible next start for Stallwalkin Dude. There is also the Grade 3, $250,000 De Francis Dash at Laurel Park on Nov. 19. Both races are at six furlongs.
