Montpellier pick up two red cards against the Saints

first_imgThursday Oct 23, 2008 Montpellier pick up two red cards against the Saints An entertaining match took place at Franklin’s Gardens on Saturday evening in the European Challenge Cup. Northampton Saints played host to Montpellier, whos night went horribly pear shaped as they had two players red carded, and conceded over fifty points. It was a convincing 51-7 win for the Saints as first half tries from Scott Gray, Joe Ansbro and a penalty try allowed the Saints to command the game, with Chris Ashton gaining the bonus-point in the 56th minute. Scores from Soane Tongauiha and Paul Diggen sealed victory. Montpellier were at one stage playing with 12 players on the field as the they had two players red carded, and two minutes from time, another picked up a yellow. Captain Julien Tomas was red carded for his alleged punch that took place during a nasty looking tangle with fiery young Saints hooker Dylan Hartley. A minute earlier there was another scuffle, and at that point it looked as though something was about to give. The clearing Hartley arm to the face of Tomas was the spark that ignited the fuse, and we saw a bit of fisty cuffs break out, resulting in the aggrieved looking Tomas being picked out for landing punches. Late in the game, hooker Fabian Rofes was given a red card for stamping as he carelessly trod on Ignacio Fernandez Lobbe. The referee had no hesitation in sending him off, compounding Montpelliers misery. Saints captain Bruce Reihana spoke afterwards regarding the cool heads required by his team. “It is hard, because when you get a bit of confrontation like that you have got to stand up for yourself. But you have to almost take it on the chin and be disciplined enough not retaliate because we certainly didnt want any yellow or red cards for the boys. A lot of the guys managed to handle it pretty well. “It is a man’s game and when you get hit, the normal reaction is to hit back, but we’re trying to retaliate by putting points on the scoreboard.”Time: 04:04 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_imgNOTES: The winning owner is Phil Bongiavanni of Yorba Linda who races as Gulliver Racing LLC.             TED H. WEST, MOTOWN MEN, WINNER: “I don’t think he’s ever come from off the pace on the inside like that. I remember when we claimed him, somebody said, ‘He’s a good horse, but I think he’s a need-the-lead type.’ Not only was he not on the lead, he was down on the rail taking some dirt. I didn’t know how he’d respond, but I didn’t have to wait too long to see.“It kind of looked to me like he’d be better on the dirt (when asked why he claimed him). He’d run some synthetic and turf and not many dirt . . . He was a Cal-bred and he runs good every time. We’ll probably give him a little time. This is three races in six weeks. He worried me a little bit today in the paddock because he got a bit hot and a little on the muscle, indicating he may be getting a little racy, so we’ll probably give him five or six weeks before his next race.”CO-OWNER PHIL BONGIOVANNI, MOTOWN MEN, WINNER: “It’s the first stakes race our stable has won on its own. We won a stakes race down in Del Mar with some partners. This is our first stakes race with Ted (H. West) as well. We’ve been with him for three-four years. We support Ted 100 percent. For us, it’s more important to see him win than us. I’m just real happy for him. He claimed the horse, he fixed the horse and here we are.” JOCKEY QUOTESTYLER BAZE, MOTOWN MEN, WINNER: “Going in to the far turn I had the rail and my horse was really running. When I grabbed him (approaching the furlong pole), I didn’t really know if he would get goin’ again. For a split second I kind of had to jump (Spirit Rules’) heels and then reached back and got them one more time.“Ted has been amazing with this horse. The horse has been unbelievable training in the mornings and he shows up in the afternoon. I found out that he can take a little dirt in the face if he has to. He’s a spectacular horse to ride, he’s an honest horse. He wants to win. It’s been an awesome day for me.”TRAINER QUOTESlast_img read more


first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 21, 2017)–In his final work in preparation for next Saturday’s $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational at Gulfstream Park and an epic rematch with legendary California Chrome, Bob Baffert’s Santa Anita-based Arrogate went an easy six furlongs in 1:12.13 prior to today’s first race at about 11:45 a.m. Santa Anita Timer Dane Nelson had Arrogate through splits of 24.82 (while well off the rail), 48.87 and 1:01.02. Nelson had the grey or roan colt by Unbridled’s Song galloping out seven furlongs in 1:24.37 and a mile in 1:38.32–on a main track that was listed by Track Superintendent Dennis Moore as “wet-fast.”As he has done the past two weekends, Arrogate, idle since defeating California Chrome by a half length in the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic here on Nov. 5, entered Santa Anita’s main track via the quarter mile chute and galloped straight off through the stretch under jockey Martin Garcia.With Baffert, wife Jill and longtime friend George Jacobs, who is the owner of workmate Uninvited, watching the drill from a private suite atop the track’s box seat area, Arrogate was set down for business coming to the three quarter pole, about 10 links behind Uninvited. He then closed the gap to about four lengths at the quarter pole, prevailing by a measured neck at the wire as Garcia stayed down into the Club House turn.“What a relief that was,” said Baffert. “I’ve been on pins and needles watching this severe weather pattern. If I’d known we were going to get this much rain, I might’ve gone to Florida for his last work. I love the way he’s training…Last time (Jan. 15), he went a little too quick (early). Today, Martin went off slow with him and he just kept him underneath him.“He’s fit but we have to wait another week and we’ll need some racing luck. Dennis Moore’s done a great job with this track and I couldn’t be happier. He’ll leave early Tuesday.”According to Baffert, Arrogate is scheduled to be flown early Tuesday morning to south Florida, where he’ll then be vanned to Gulfstream.Owned by Juddmonte Farms, Arrogate, who was also a record setting winner of the prestigious Grade I Travers Stakes at Saratoga two starts back on Aug. 27, has five wins from six starts and has earnings of $4,084,600. He’ll be ridden for the third consecutive time next Saturday by Mike Smith.For more information on next Saturday’s $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational and to make Pegasus seating and dining reservations at Santa Anita, please visit or call (626) 574-RACE.
