options at wide receiver
Rise Up on paper appears to be the controlling speed in the $250,000 Delta Downs Mile on Saturday. His trainer, Tom Amoss, would welcome such a scenario.Its no secret what our strategy is going to be, Amoss said. Hes a horse that goes to the front and we want to take advantage of that. Thats going to be the plan, to go to the front and hopefully carry it all the way around.The Delta Mile is one of eight stakes on the $2.3 million Jackpot program in Vinton, La. The race also serves as the first leg of an all-stakes pick four on races 4-7. There is a $200,000 minimum guaranteed pool and a takeout rate of 12 percent. The forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of 65 degrees. Delta will have a first post of 1:45 p.m. Central, and the races will be streamed live on DRF.com.Rise Up, a 5-year-old millionaire by Rockport Harbor who races for Paul Van Doren, has been a Delta Downs star since he was 2. He won the tracks Jean Lafitte and Grade 3, $1 million Jackpot, and then returned last season to dominate a local allowance. Rise Up got the call for this years Delta Mile after registering a pair of authoritative wins, one in an allowance at Ellis Park, and then in the $100,000 Wild and Wonderful Stakes at Charles Town.Hes really had kind of a resurgence this summer, starting with the race at Ellis and carrying over to the race at Charles Town, Amoss said. They were races were used to seeing him run, that it took a while to get back to.Rise Ups record on the six-furlong oval at Delta is 3 for 5 with earnings of $773,800.He has an affinity for those tight turns, Amoss said. Hes very athletic on those turns.Javier Castellano has the mount on Rise Up, who will break from post 4 in a field of seven.Rise Up will face Great Minds, who is 2 for 2 at Delta. His wins include the $75,000 Borgata here in March, a race that served as his springboard to victory in the Grade 3, $200,000 Texas Mile at Lone Star Park.Fear the Cowboy is another who has won at Delta. He enters Saturdays race off a fourth-place finish to Noble Bird in the $175,000 Lukas Classic at Churchill Downs. Noble Bird went on to win the Grade 2 Fayette at Keeneland. Fear the Cowboy has been working regularly at Delta.Sammy Mandeville, who has placed in three stakes, invades from Southern California for W C Racing.Hes such an honest horse, said trainer Doug ONeill. Lately, the waters have been so deep we had to point him outside of Southern California. The game plan is to hopefully run really well Saturday, then have him stay back with Tom Amoss for a Midwest campaign. There are more options for him in the Midwest than in Southern California.* The second leg of the pick four is the $75,000 Sams Town, a seven-furlong race run around two turns. It is restricted to 3-year-olds and up who have never won a stakes. A field of 10 is set to start, led by The Truth Or Else.The Truth Or Else, who at 2 finished third in the Grade 1 Champagne at Belmont, enters Saturdays race in peak form. He took down an optional $100,000 claiming sprint at Keeneland on Oct. 23. Julien Leparoux was aboard the horse for the first time, and has the mount again Saturday. The Truth Or Else will break from post 3.Hes been a horse when we raised him [up into a stakes], he struggled with it, said trainer Ken McPeek. The restriction on this race is a big deal - horses that hadnt won a stakes yet. I also like the fact that hes got Julien back on him.One test, said McPeek, will be the two-turn configuration of the race. The Truth Or Elses last three wins have come in one-turn races.* In Kathballu, McPeek has the probable favorite in the $75,000 Orleans, the Sams Town counterpart for fillies and mares. She exits a fourth-place finish in the Grade 2 Chilukki at Churchill.* Steel Cut will be looking for her third stakes win of the year in the $200,000 Treasure Chest, a one-mile race for fillies and mares which goes with a field of five. Robby Albarado has the mount for trainer Wes Hawley.* The stakes action starts in the third with the $150,000 Louisiana Jewel, a mile race for 2-year-old fillies bred in Louisiana. The field includes stakes winner Chases Dixie Belle and the stakes-placed Jazz Lady and Big Game Baby.* The counterpart for 2-year-olds, the Louisiana Legacy, is led by Jack Snipes.

Baltimore Orioles Hoodie. -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Steve Spagnuolo spent a lot of time this past week talking to veteran cornerback Leon Hall.The New York Giants defensive coordinator has been trying to find ways to limit the Cincinnati Bengals offense on Monday night at MetLife Stadium, and there is no better way than getting first-hand knowledge.Before signing with the Giants in training camp, Hall spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Bengals. He knows quarterback Andy Dalton and more importantly, he knows A.J. Green, the NFLs leading receiver this season with 59 catches.One of the things Hall told Spagnuolo was that Green has a unique ability to wait until the last second to stick his hands out and catch a ball, limiting the time a defensive back can use his hands to defend the pass.A.J. has great hands, he is a bigger wide-out, with really good quickness, Spagnuolo said. We have to find a way to slow him down. We cant let him wreck the football game. That is a good football player, but we will have different people on him and do different things.The Bengals (3-4-1) arent as bad as their record looks. Their losses have been to Pittsburgh, Denver, Dallas, New England and the tie was against Washington in London in their most recent game on Oct. 30. They have had two weeks to prepare for the Giants (5-3), who are seeking their first four-game winning streak since 2013.The Giants defense has led the way, but the Bengals pose a big challenge because they are a balanced attack. Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard lead a running game that averages 120.3 yards, while Dalton has had a 100-plus quarterback rating in four of his past five starts.Green is the big-play threat against a defense that gave up seven plays of 20 or more yards in a win against the Eagles last weekend.Hes a big problem, Hall said of Green. Theres not a lot he cant do. He can run the short routes, hes agile enough to run some bigger routes and stuff like that. He can pretty much do it all. He goes up and gets it, he can run. Hes pretty strong at the point of attack on press coverages and stuff like that. Everyone knows wwhat he can do week in and week out.dddddddddddd Hes done that for years now.The Giants have had cornerback Janoris Jenkins go against the oppositions top receiver a couple of times this season. He limited Dez Bryant of the Cowboys to one reception in the season opener.Jenkins and Green know each other from college. Jenkins played at Florida, while Green was at Georgia.Hes fast, athletic and is very quick, thats everything you want in a corner, Green said.The two also faced each other last season when Jenkins was still with the Rams. Green caught two touchdowns in that game.One of them was on me, Jenkins said. It was a blown coverage, but I dont think the other one was.Hall said the teams that have had the most success against Green mix things up.You cant just keep rolling up to him because hell figure that out, Hall said. You cant just play Cover 2 or Cover 1.You have to have a variety. At the end of the day, it really starts with the quarterback. You want to keep him on his toes, keep him guessing and hesitant to affect some of those throws.The Giants pass rush has improved in recent weeks, and they will need it to prevent Dalton from getting into a rhythm.Once he gets his timing going, its impressive to watch, especially the past few years, Hall said. Hes had a lot of options at wide receiver and a couple of threats out of the backfield. Obviously tight end. Once he gets it going and spreads the ball out, its pretty impressive.The Bengals cant afford many more setbacks if they want to get to the playoffs for a sixth straight season.I dont feel like were desperate, but we know what we have to do, Green said.The Giants, who are looking to get to the playoffs for the first time since 2011, will induct two-time Super Bowl-winning coach Tom Coughlin, former general manager Ernie Accorsi and defensive end Justin Tuck into their Ring of Honor in a halftime ceremony.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and -http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Jerseys  Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
