Three on the bounce for Lite

first_img Successive victories at Punchestown this season had seen the Charles Byrnes-trained five-year-old raised 23lb in the weights prior to his latest assignment. Sent off the 4-1 joint-favourite for this 50,000 euro contest, Lite Duties made stealthy headway towards the front end before the home turn and responded to Philip Enright’s urgings in the straight to quicken past admirable mare Jennies Jewel. The other 4-1 joint-favourite, Tony Martin’s Dara Tango, emerged as the biggest threat after the final flight, but Lite Duties saw him off by two and three-quarter lengths. Byrnes said: “I was delighted with the way he stayed on. There were not that many options between now and Christmas and he could go now for a novice between two and a half and three miles. “It was a good pot to get today, and just unfortunate that Davy (Russell) couldn’t do the weight.” Press Associationcenter_img Lite Duties completed a hat-trick in the lucrative Tara Handicap Hurdle at Navan.last_img read more

Former Angels GM Jerry Dipoto takes same job in Seattle

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error SEATTLE — The Seattle Mariners have found their new general manager, hiring former Angels GM Jerry Dipoto. Seattle announced Dipoto’s hiring Monday. He replaces Jack Zduriencik, who was fired in late August after seven disappointing seasons during which the club failed to end its playoff drought. With the Toronto Blue Jays making the postseason this year, the Mariners now have the longest playoff absence in baseball at 14 years and counting. Dipoto’s job will be to end that playoff drought and continue rebuilding a farm system that had highs and lows during Zduriencik’s tenure. Dipoto was the Angels’ general manager for 3 1/2 years before resigning on July 1 following clashes with manager Mike Scioscia that began the first year they worked together.last_img
