LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Lightstream completed a terrific 3-year-old campaign Saturday with a well-gauged ride from Julien Leparoux in winning the 18th running of the Grade 2, $250,000 Raven Run Stakes before a sun-splashed crowd of 23,239 at Keeneland.Away sharply from her outside post but eased off a hot early pace, Lightstream charged down the middle of the stretch to win the seven-furlong Raven Run over Malibu Stacy, a 40-1 shot.She broke good, but she comes from behind, Leparoux said. She really impressed me on the turn. When I asked her she really took off.Lightstream returned $6.80 as favorite in a field of 12 3-year-old fillies after finishing in 1:22.68 over a fast track. In a six-race campaign that began in early March for trainer Brian Lynch, Lightstream has registered four wins and placings in two Grade 1 races -- a third in the Mother Goose and a second in the Test. The Kentucky-bred daughter of Harlans Holiday is owned by Up Hill Stable and Head of Plains Partners.Lynch said before the Raven Run that Lightstream would be given 60 days off after the race regardless of the result, then be sent to the Palm Meadows training center in South Florida to prepare for her 4-year-old season.Previously unbeaten Lucy N Ethel, the 7-2 second choice, made the early lead in the Raven Run but was done before the quarter pole, with Curlins Approval and Coniah taking over as the field straightened for home. Meanwhile, Lightstream was full of momentum, and her outside surge was too much for the others, with her final margin over a late-charging Malibu Stacy being 1-1/4 lengths. Coniah was another half-length back in third, with Curlins Approval another half-length back in fourth.After the top four, the order was Graces Treasure, Southern Girl, Takrees, Covey Trace, Sophias Song, Bellamentary, Ma Can Do It, and Lucy N Ethel. There were no scratches.In April, off an eye-catching career debut at Gulfstream Park, Lightstream won the Grade 3 Beaumont at Keeneland in her second start. She becomes only the second filly, after Gypsy Robin in 2012, to sweep the Beaumont and Raven Run in the same year.For Leparoux, it was his 55th stakes victory at Keeneland, allowing him to take sole possession of second in that category after previously being tied with Jerry Bailey. Pat Day has the most with 95.The $2 exacta (12-7) paid $276, the $1 trifecta (12-7-9) returned $2,033.90, and the 10-cent superfecta (12-7-9-8) was worth $1,712.39.Racing resumes Sunday at Keeneland with the Grade 3 Dowager Stakes for filly-mare turf marathoners.

Cheap Basketball Jerseys China . Capitals head coach Adam Oates said Ovechkin was injured in the first period against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday and clarified it was not a head injury. NEW YORK -- A year ago, the New York Mets had an eventful first homestand after the All-Star break.The Los Angeles Dodgers Clayton Kerhsaw nearly threw a perfect game against the Mets, who called up their top prospect, made three trades and vaulted into first place in the National League East.New York will hope its first homestand of this year after the All-Star will be filled with wins. The Mets kick off the home portion of the second-half scheduled Monday with the opener of a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals.The homestand will begin a year and one day after Michael Conforto was called up and trades for Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson were completed. It also starts three days shy of the one-year anniversary of the Wilmer Flores-for-Carlos Gomez trade that fell through, setting up the dramatic acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes three days later.Conforto, Johnson, Cespedes and Flores are still with the third-place Mets, who are 52-45 and five games behind the Washington Nationals in the National League East. New York also is a half-game behind the Miami Marlins for the second NL wild card.The Mets would have been further back, but they took two of three in Miami and ended an eight-game road trip by getting a 3-0 victory, highlighted by Steven Matz retiring Giancarlo Stanton with two on for the final out of the fifth inning.This was crunch time for us, Mets manager Terry Collins said. We couldnt lose any more ground. We have to hang in there until we start to get healthy or we start to really get it clicking offensively. This was a good series for us to win.Cespedes had an RBI single Sunday, and he has five hits in 20 at-bats in six games since returning from a quadriceps injury. He is batting .299 with 21 home runs and 56 RBI, but the quad ailment means he cant move well enough to play center field and can play only left field.Conforto was used in center field for the first time Sunday. He is 5-for-11 in five games since returning from Triple-A Las Vegas after a massive slump earned him a demotion.Trade rumors are swirling around the Mets. Among the reports: The New York Daily News wrote that the Mets are among the teams trying to acquire Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy with a possible offer being catcher Travis dArnaud and a prospect.While dArnaud may become expendable, Noah Syndergaard is not.Syndergaard was acquired with dArnaud from the Toronto Blue Jays following the 2012 season in the R.A. Dickey deal and has emerged as the Mets ace. He will pitch the series opener against the Cardinals on Monday, only his second outing in 17 days surrounding the All-Star break.ddddddddddddSyndergaard (9-4, 2.43 ERA) experienced arm fatigue July 8 against Washington, and the Mets pushed him back to the fifth game after the break to give him more time off. His fastball velocity reached 100 mph Tuesday, when he allowed an unearned run in 5 2/3 innings during a 2-1 win over the Chicago Cubs.I felt really comfortable starting the game, he said. I was just trying to nibble on the corners a little bit and not getting the balls over and missing my spots -- not by much -- just a little bit. ... (But) I felt pretty crisp in terms of mechanics out there.The right-hander is 5-2 with a 2.30 ERA at home this season and 12-4 with a 2.39 ERA in 23 appearances at home with 167 strikeouts and 16 walks.In his only career outing against the Cardinals, Syndergaard pitched seven innings of two-run ball in a 3-2 loss July 17, 2015 at Busch Stadium.St. Louis (52-46) will play 20 of its next 26 games on the road, and it starts this stretch a game behind the Marlins in the wild-card chase and 7 1/2 behind the first-place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. The Cardinals will start the trip without third baseman Jhonny Peralta, second baseman/third baseman Matt Carpenter and first baseman/outfielder Brandon Moss but could end it with the trio back in the lineup.Any way you look at it, it certainly strengthens your club, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said.The Cardinals won six of their first eight games after the break, but following a 16-inning win Friday, they were outscored 16-8 in consecutive losses to the Los Angeles Dodgers.St. Louis used its bullpen for 20 2/3 innings in the weekend series, and so it will look for distance Monday from starter Carlos Martinez (9-6, 2.83 ERA). Martinez allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings Wednesday against the San Diego Padres and is 3-1 with a 1.52 ERA in his last seven starts.Martinez has provided St. Louis with distance by pitching into the seventh during 10 of his 18 starts. He did so in his last start after getting a bloody nose in the second inning.It actually really helped me stay focused after the fact, Martinez said through an interpreter. I was trying to stay in the game and (keep) my mind in the game where it should be.Martinez is 1-1 with a 0.57 ERA in five career appearances (two starts) against the Mets. He was the losing pitcher when the teams played 19 innings July 19, 2015, in St. Louis, and he allowed four hits in 6 1/3 innings during a 9-0 win at New York on May 20, 2015. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
