Third Horse Dies in 3 Days at Santa Anita Park
01/20/2020 12:12am

Three horses have died in three days at Santa Anita Park while animal rights activists continue to push for a nationwide ban on racing.Santa Anita officials confirmed the death of the horse, which had been in an off-track training exercise Sunday morning. California Horse Racing Board spokesperson Mike Martin said the horse named Tikkun Olam suffered catastrophic injuries, but the riders and other horse were not injured.News of the horses death came while racing protesters were already stationed outside the racetrack Sunday afternoon.Three dead horses in three days requires immediate action, PETA spokeswoman Brooke Rossi said. The California Horse Racing Board was recently given the authority, in legislation backed by Gov. Gavin Newsom, to suspend racing, and now it must do exactly that. There is no sense in the board allowing racing and deaths to continue until it enacts all its own pending regulations and acts on the recommendations of the Los Angeles County District Attorneys office. If it takes the closure of a track to stop the deaths, then close the track.On Saturday, a 4-year-old gelding named Uncontainable was entered in the first race of the day, but suffered a fractured right front ankle, according to a post on Santa Anitas website. Per recommendation from the attending veterinarian, the horse was humanely euthanized.A day earlier, on Friday, a 6-year-old gelding named Harliss was euthanized after fracturing his right front ankle in a race at Santa Anita after finishing seventh in a field of eight in the seventh race. He was also euthanized under the recommendation from the attending veterinarian.The three combined deaths in consecutive days brought the number of horse deaths at Santa Anita to at least 42 since December 2018. Five horses have died at Santa Anita since its winter/spring meeting began Dec. 28.Meanwhile, officials at Santa Anita released a statement Saturday reaffirming the track administrations commitment to horse safety.Santa Anita remains committed to transparency, it said. Our safety statistics and incident reports are publicly available on our website at SantaAnita.com/safety. Home to 2,000 horses, Santa Anita Park is one of the largest equine training facilities in the United States. Horses raced or trained at Santa Anita Park more than 420,000 times over the last year with a 99.991 safety rate.Santa Anita and the sport in general have faced increasing pressure from animal-rights activists and elected officials since the deaths at Santa Anita started garnering media attention in early 2019.The California Horse Racing Board is set to issue a report soon on the deaths.The Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office concluded Dec. 19 that there was no criminal wrongdoing connected to the deaths, but offered aseries of recommendations aimed at improving safety at racetracks in California.Horse racing has inherent risks but is a legally sanctioned sport in California, District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in a statement. Greater precautions are needed to enhance safety and protect both horses and their riders.The district attorney called on state regulators to develop safety enhancements to reduce horse deaths, including possible enhanced penalties for rules violations, establishment of a tip line for people to report violations or animal cruelty allegations and mandated inspections of racing and training facilities, and reviews of necropsy and veterinary records of horses that have died.The report also made recommendations aimed at identifying pre-existing conditions in horses that could lead to breakdowns, establishing track-maintenance protocols including special measures during rain or extreme weather conditions, and creation of safety codes of conduct for owners, trainers, jockeys, veterinarians and others who care for horses.The report noted that officials at Santa Anita have implemented a series of safety-improvement measures that have reduced the number of fatal racing and training incidents.Santa Anita recently debuted a PET Scan machine to provide imaging of the fetlock or ankle joint the most common area for injuries to occur in thoroughbreds without horses having to undergo anesthesia, and said it will help to diagnose pre-existing conditions.This state-of-the-art technology reflects a new standard of care within Thoroughbred racing a standard that puts the health and safety of horses and riders first, said Belinda Stronach, The Stronach Groups chairman and president.

01/19/2020 4:36am

LeBron James had 31 points and 12 assists and the Los Angeles Lakers rode a big third quarter to a a 124-115 win over the Houston Rockets on Saturday night.The Lakers bounced back after a loss to Orlando on Wednesday night that snapped their nine-game winning streak.

That sent many Rockets fans streaming for the exits and caused a large contingent of Lakers fans to start chanting, Lets go Lakers.The Rockets did not get closer than seven points the rest of the way.The Lakers opened the second half with a 10-3 run to take their first lead of the game, 69-68, with about eight minutes left in the third quarter. James capped that run by making a basket and then added another one seconds later after JaVale McGee blocked a dunk attempt by Clint Capela. McGee beat his chest and screamed after in Capelas direction after the play and received a technical foul for taunting.There were about seven minutes left in the third when Westbrook and Anthony Davis, who missed the game with an injury, both received technical fouls for jawing at each other.The Lakers led by three later in the third when Kuzma scored the first four points of a 9-2 run that stretched the lead to 85-75.Houston had a chance to cut the deficit at the end of the third quarter, but Westbrook missed two free throws to leave the Lakers up 91-82 entering the fourth.TIP-INSLakers: Davis missed a fifth straight game with a bruised backside. Dwight Howard received a technical foul early in the third quarter for yelling at Houston players from the bench.

Eric Gordon had 13 points. Capela had 12 rebounds.UP NEXTLakers: Visit Boston on Monday.Rockets: Host Oklahoma City on Monday.

Kawhi Leonard Scores 39 as Clippers Rally to Beat Pelicans 133-130
01/19/2020 12:56am

As disappointed as Clippers coach Doc Rivers was to see his team give up 80 first-half points, he now has evidence that his team can do that and still find a way to win on the road.Kawhi Leonard scored 39 points and the Clippers rallied to beat the recently resurgent New Orleans Pelicans 133-130 on Saturday.Clearly, the defense didnt wake up for either team, Rivers said. It was one of those games where, at halftime, I said, Guys, first team that plays any defense will win this game.We played defense in the fourth, Rivers continued. Thats why we won.Lou Williams scored 14 of his 32 points during a dominant fourth quarter for Los Angeles, which outscored the Pelicans 31-20 in the final 12 minutes.I feel like I can make 100 in a row once I make one, Williams said of his fourth-quarter surge. I feel like I can make anything after that.Williams 3 with 31.6 seconds left, after Patrick Beverley had rebounded Leonards miss, gave the Clippers a 133-127 lead and sent numerous fans toward the exits.Very talented scorer fearless, just goes out there and plays the game, Leonard said of Williams. He pushed us to win that game in that fourth quarter. It just gives you relief that you have somebody that also can take over.JJ Redick hit a quick 3 in response to Williams clutch basket, and after Leonard ran down the shot clock and missed from deep, New Orleans had 2.4 seconds to attempt a tying 3 that Redick missed off the back rim.The Pelicans can score. Theyve got a lot of talent over there, Leonard said. They have youth. They play hard. So Doc just wanted us to grind out the win. He kept telling us we just got to find a way.And, obviously, everybody wants to play better defense, Leonard added.Montrezl Harrell scored 24 points for the Clippers, who trailed by 10 in the final seconds of the third quarter, but turned Brandon Ingrams turnover into two free throws by Williams, and then opened the fourth with an 8-0 run capped by Williams and JaMychal Greens back-to-back 3s to tie it at 110.After shooting 58.5 38 of 65 in the first three quarters, the Pelicans made 8 of 21 shots in the fourth as the game slipped away from them.Both teams kind of slowed down a little bit in the fourth quarter, but I think we probably turned the ball over a couple of times and let a rebound get away, and they just went and made baskets, said Pelicans center Derrick Favors, who had 22 points and 11 rebounds. It was more maybe letting like little things take us out the game.Lonzo Ball had 18 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for the Pelicans, who were seeking their 11th victory in 15 games despite the recent absence of guard Jrue Holiday, who has missed seven games with an elbow injury.Beating the contending Clippers was going to be a tall order, but Ball asserted, I dont believe in moral victories. I thought we should have won the game.Ingram had 21 points and Redick finished with 19.The teams combined for 152 points in a fast-paced first half, during which New Orleans 80 points tied a franchise record.Favors made his first seven shots and had 15 of his points in the opening 24 minutes, when the Pelicans shot 63.6.TIP-INSClippers: Landry Shamet scored 11 points. The Clippers were without Paul George left hamstring for a fifth straight game. Los Angeles scored 24 points off 21 Pelicans turnovers. Improved to 11-9 on the road.Pelicans: Set a franchise record for second-quarter points with 45. Rookie center Jaxson Hayes scored 14 points and fellow first-round draft choice Nickeil Alexander-Walker scored 10. Missed 13 of 36 free throws. Shot 11 of 21 from 3 in the first half, 4 of 20 after that.LEONARDS SCORING SURGELeonard has scored at least 30 points in each of his last five games, his longest such stretch this season, which includes his season-high 43 points against Cleveland.His highlights in New Orleans included a foul-line jumper as he fell backwards after being fouled by Josh Hart, his steal from Ingram for a breakaway dunk and and a driving dunk over the 6-foot-11 Hayes.Making shots, Leonard said. Simple as that.Asked about his mindset when he dunked on Hayes, he said, obviously when you see a defender come with intensity, you want to try to raise your level and jump as high as you can.UP NEXTClippers: Visit Dallas on Tuesday night in the second game of a six-game trip.Pelicans: Visit Memphis on Monday night in their last game before the scheduled regular-season debut of top overall draft pick Zion Williamson.

01/19/2020 3:31am

Anytime Southern California beats UCLA it is special. The fact that the Trojans upset the nations only remaining unbeaten team in Division I womens basketball on Friday night made it that much sweeter.Aliyah Jeune and Alissa Pili both posted double-doubles and came up big in double overtime as the Trojans rallied for a 70-68 victory over the seventh-ranked Bruins and snap a five-game losing streak.It has taken some time to put things together but we were able to push through two overtimes which was more exciting than I think any of us were prepared for, USC associate head coach Aarika Hughes said.The Bruins 16-1, 5-1 Pac-12 had a 64-59 lead with 3:17 remaining in the second OT before the Trojans 9-8, 1-5 rallied, going on a 10-2 run to close the game.Juene who had 27 points and 13 rebounds gave the Trojans a 67-66 lead with 1:10 remaining with a steal and layup. Japreece Dean put UCLA back on top with a layup but Pilis three-point play with 27 seconds remaining put USC in the lead for good. UCLA had a chance to tie, but Chantal Horvat missed a layup with 2 seconds left.Getting this big win meant a lot to us because we have been stressing in practice fixing things, said Pili, who had 19 points and 17 rebounds.Dean scored 24 points and Charisma Osborne had 20 for UCLA, who were missing star forward Michaela Onyenwere. The Bruins shot 29.9 from the field 26 of 87 and were 8 of 32 from beyond the arc.UCLA coach Cori Close said the difference ended up being the Trojans getting it to their key players when it mattered most.They came out with great energy and did a good job competing, she said. Im really proud of the fight we showed coming back but it stings.The Bruins trailed 36-19 less than two minutes into the third quarter before storming back. Osborne keyed the surge with 11 points in the third quarter as UCLA went on a 16-2 run to get within three five minutes later.USC held a 43-41 advantage at the end of the third quarter, but Osborne gave UCLA its first lead since late in the first with a 3-pointer 28 seconds into the fourth. The Bruins would go up 53-48 with 3:38 remaining before the Trojans scored five straight to tie. Kayla Overbecks free throws with 50.9 seconds remaining knotted it at 53 and sent it into overtime.Bruins guard Natalie Chou forced double overtime with a 3-pointer from the corner at the buzzer.UCLA scored the games first six points, only to see USC lead 16-15 at the end of the first quarter. Dean made a pair of free throws to get the Bruins within 18-17 with 9:01 remaining in the second quarter. It would be their final points of the half, though, as the Trojans scored the final 12 points to take a 30-17 lead at halftime. Pili scored four points during the run while Desiree Caldwell and Jeune made back-to-back 3-pointers.UNBEATEN NO MOREThe Bruins knew they had a target on their back being the last unbeaten, but Osborne said it wasnt bigger compared to what they usually face.We knew it was there but it wasnt too much pressure. We have to go out every night and fight, she said.STEPPING UPOnyenwere, who is third in the Pac-12 in scoring with 18.9 points per game, sprained her ankle during practice earlier in the week and was in sweats on the Bruins bench. Horvat took the juniors place in the starting lineup and had nine points with 12 rebounds.BIG PICTUREUCLA: The Bruins began the game seven of 36 from the field and went 14:36 between field goals. But they made nine of 12 during one stretch of the third quarter to rally back.USC: It is the first time since 2007 that the Trojans have won a game in double overtime. They had lost two since.UP NEXTUCLA: hosts Washington on Jan. 24.USC: hosts Washington State on Jan. 24.

01/17/2020 11:08am

Adept at operating at whatever gear his team needs, Kawhi Leonard has been in selfish mode of late, and the Los Angeles Clippers are better for it.Leonard scored 32 points, Montrezl Harrell had 21 and the Clippers beat the Orlando Magic 122-95 on Thursday night.Leonard also had five rebounds and five assists in his fourth consecutive game with at least 30 points. He was 12 for 20 from the field.Leonards adaptive nature is why the Clippers were willing to throw more than $100 million his way for the next three seasons. Finding a player that has the ability to be the best in the league at whatever mode he chooses does not come cheap.Its not hard for him it would be hard for me and most other players, Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said. For him, hes so under control that nothings going to speed him up. He can go fast when he wants to. We have figured out how to take advantage of that better and its been great for us.Related ContentLakersJan 16Magic Snap Lakers 9-Game Winning Streak in 119-118 ThrillerJan 15Kawhi Leonard Scores 43 in 3 Quarters as Clippers Rout CavaliersLeonards four consecutive offensive-minded games have coincided with Paul Georges absence because of a strained left hamstring. The Clippers not only improved to 11-1 when Leonard scores 30 or more points, he is the first Clippers player with four consecutive games of at least 30 since Elton Brand in 2006.Im just making shots, my teammates are being aggressive and they are getting me open shots as well, Leonard said. Its just creating a chain reaction and were all playing hard on defense. Were able to get out in transition.The Clippers placed seven players in double figures and led by many as 23 in their fourth win in five games. Landry Shamet scored 13 points, and JaMychal Green finished with 11 points and 13 rebounds.Nikola Vucevic had 22 points and nine rebounds and Aaron Gordon scored 20 points, but the Magic were unable to keep up with the Clippers while playing in Los Angeles for the second time in two nights. Orlando ended the Lakers nine-game winning streak with a victory Wednesday.Finding the same energy level simply proved too difficult for the Magic.Look, you have to have the necessary intensity, purpose, attitude of play, to win any night in this league, especially against a team as good as theirs, Magic head coach Steve Clifford said. You have to be on it. I thought Aaron Gordon was terrific. Except for that More StoriesMajor League BaseballJan 17Giants Make Alyssa Nakken 1st Female Major League CoachDodgersJan 16Everything You Need to Know About Dodgers FanFestOur team, our approach and our attitude has been a real strength all year. Tonight it was not.The Magic are 2-1 during their current visit to California and the victories have been rewarding, the defeat will weigh heavily. Fittingly, the trip ends against Golden State on Saturday.A 3-1 run through the state should more than meet expectations for a team that has hit something of a groove with four victories in six games, even with Thursdays defeat. They have also won six of their last nine.We didnt execute defensively, said Gordon, a native of San Jose. We were scoring with them for a little bit of time but thats not really who we are. Were not going to outscore teams so we have to lock in defensively and we didnt do that.Leonard got the Clippers going early, scoring 22 points to help Los Angeles to a 67-48 lead at the break. The Magic got the deficit under 15 points at one point early in the fourth quarter but never made a serious run.After missing his first game of the season Wednesday because of a right quad contusion, the Magics Evan Fournier had 15 points. Markelle Fultz had 11 points one night after recording his second career triple-double.BACK TO SCHOOLThe Clippers might have a long road trip upcoming, but Leonard will gladly make another stop out of town after the team returns.Following the teams afternoon home game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Feb. 1, Leonard will head to his alma mater, San Diego State, to have his No. 15 jersey retired that evening.More StoriesbaseballJan 16LA City Council Thinks MLB Should Give Dodgers 2017 and 2018 World Series TrophiesLA DodgersJan 16Alex Wood Signs $4 Million, Incentive-Laden New Contract with DodgersNot big on personal attention, or ever-lasting acclaim, Leonard is still looking forward to the festivities.Just going to school, the goal was to get here, Leonard said. It just shows me that my hard work paid off. I was able to get the job done and get to where I wanted to get to my dream job. Just looking back, it was fun times being able to play in college, go to school, meet new people be in a different city alone.
