    Hugo Palmer will let the dust settle before deciding whether to target Galileo Gold at the Investec Derby or stay at a mile with the Newmarket hero. Brett Favre Youth Jersey . Galileo Gold gave Palmer his first English Classic success with a resounding performance in the Qipco 2000 Guineas on Saturday and the trainer now has the difficult, but enviable, problem of where to go next.While Palmer would naturally prefer to win the Irish 2,000 Guineas rather than try and fail at Epsom, he is keeping the options open for the time being. The question everyone is asking is whether he will now go for the Derby, Palmer told dream is to win the Derby, but my job is to do the right thing for the horse. And I would rather win an Irish 2,000 Guineas than finish sixth at Epsom.But his pedigree gives you some hope that he will stay - he is out of a Galileo mare and from the family of Montjeu - and they say that the Guineas is the best trial for the Derby. And you couldnt get a better trial than yesterdays victory.Knee-jerk reactions could end up misleading people so the best thing to do is to let the dust settle and discuss our options, and make the right decision.But if we did decide to go to Epsom, I imagine that he would go straight there. He had plenty of racing at two and was having his first race since October yesterday, so I think three runs in a month would be pushing it.But if we do go, I would like the horse to take part in the Breakfast With The Stars, as I think a sight and feel of the track and the paddock beforehand would be invaluable.Galileo Golds jockey Frankie Dettori is glad the team have not to make their mind up just yet.The feeling he gave me yesterday tells me hes probably ready for 10 furlongs. Im glad we dont have to make a decision between Epsom and Royal Ascot just yet and I wouldnt dare tell Hugo what to do anyway, Dettori told you forced me to make a call now Id say that for Epsom you need a top-class horse and I think Galileo Gold is top class so maybe Id lean towards a crack at the Derby.I dont want to give up my Derby crown without a fight, but the big question is whether hell be ready for a mile and a half in less than five weeks.It could be touch and go, so Royal Ascot (St Jamess Palace Stakes) has to be in the mix.

"We have always prided ourselves on the way we play defence. Having two big pieces back is going to be a key for us moving forward for years to come," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen. Fran Tarkenton Jersey . NBA officials ruled the court unplayable in the Bucks final exhibition game on Oct. 25 because players were slipping, and the game was cancelled midway through the first period. . Marincin has played in two NHL games so far this season with two penalty minutes. The 21-year-old has three goals, four assists and a plus-5 rating in 24 games with the American Hockey Leagues Oklahoma City Barons this season. MINNEAPOLIS -- The four Minnesota Lynx captains awoke Thursday in Connecticut to disturbing news back home: the shooting death of Philando Castile, a black man, during a traffic stop in the Twin Cities suburb of Falcon Heights, Minnesota.Two days earlier, the death of another black man, Alton Sterling, in an encounter with police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, deeply shook Lynx star Seimone Augustus, a Baton Rouge native familiar with the gas station where it occurred. At Minnesotas shootaround Thursday before their game at the Connecticut Sun, the captains -- Augustus, Maya Moore and Rebekkah Brunson, who are black, plus Lindsay Whalen -- initiated a long, thoughtful discussion with coach Cheryl Reeve.They shared stories with Reeve, who is white, about their experiences growing up black in America. Later that day and the next, they shared horror over the slayings of five white police officers by a black sniper in Dallas.So Saturday, before Minnesotas home game with the Dallas Wings at the Target Center, the Lynx captains used their public platform to call for healing, compassion and dialogue.The entire team wore black warm-up shirts with the message Change Starts With Us -- Justice and Accountability on the front. (Accountability is a Lynx team mantra.) The back featured the names of Castile and Sterling, the Dallas Police Department shield and, at the bottom, Black Lives Matter.In the wake of the tragedies that have continued to plague our society, we have decided it is important to take a stand and raise our voices, said Brunson, reading from a statement at a pregame news conference. Racial profiling is a problem. Senseless violence is a problem. The divide is way too big between our community and those who have vowed to protect and serve us.Brunson and Moore spoke for the group while Whalen and Augustus sat alongside. Moore noted the tragic irony of the attack in Dallas, where de-escalation training has dramatically reduced the number of police shootings and complaints about excessive use of force since 2009.We do not in any way condone violence against the men and women who serve in our police force, Moore said. Senseless violence and retaliation do not bring us peace.Moore added: We as a nation can decide to stand up for what is right, no matter your race, background or social status. It is time we take a deep look at our ability to be compassionate and empathetic to those suffering from the problems that are deep within our society.On Sunday the New York Liberty added their own statement, black warm-up shirts with #BlackLivesMatter and #Dallas5 on the front and a haunting #___________ on the back.Being on the platform we have [we should] definitely use our voice, Liberty star Tina Charles said. We have family, we have close friends, relatives that are affected by everything that is going on, and we relate to it as well.Reeve said the Lynx told the league its players planned to make a statement of support.The overriding thing for me is, I feel incredibly proud of our group, and particularly our captains, Reeve said after the Lynx routed Dallas 93-56. Everything we do, were led by those four.This is a group that is incredibly compassionate, intelligent, measured, responsible. They were very affected. Were people. We also undderstand that what we do is more than sport, and were blessed to have an opportunity to be a part of opening minds, changing minds, making the world a better place. Adam Thielen Vikings Jersey. The conversation between the players and Reeve was at times emotional. Brunson, for the first time, told her teammates about a scary encounter with police as an 8-year-old in Oxon Hills, Maryland. Brunson said she and some friends were playing in the bottom level hallway connecting their three apartment buildings when police arrived, weapons drawn.I think weve all been touched deeply by the things that are happening, Brunson said. The memory just kind of came back to me, and I started thinking about it and said this is something I should share at this time.I dont know why they were there. I dont know who they were looking for. But I feel like when youre approaching children, theres no reason and no place for that. The fact that they felt like it was OK then was an issue, and the fact that they feel like its OK now is an issue. Its something everybody has to start thinking about.Speaking out against injustice was ingrained in Brunson by her grandmother, Helma Brunson, who grew up in Nazi Germany and was sentenced to hang for treason in the final days of World War II before the Allies liberated her village.Then she came to the U.S., married a black guy, had a mixed kid, and had to stand up to a whole nother set of issues, said Brunson, a Georgetown graduate. Ive never been taught to just be silent.The Lynx held a pregame moment of silence Saturday honoring all the victims. Two Lynx tweets about the shirts drew more than 1,800 likes, far outnumbering critical responses from tweeps who appeared to overlook the Dallas police shield or objected to the inclusion of Black Lives Matter.Many Americans feel the same way we do, as far as the heartbreak -- all of it, Moore said after the game. The only appropriate step now is to talk about the things that are needing to be talked about. Thats one thing we can do. We have a platform to use our voice. Especially having players who have experienced some of the similar experiences some of the victims had, it just didnt sit right with us to not do something more than feel sorry and sad.Hopefully, the response were showing will encourage positive change.Reeve, in her postgame news conference, paused for about 15 seconds and tried to fight back tears as she recalled the discussion with her players.First and foremost, I wanted them to know as a white person, how sorry I was for what they experienced in racial profiling, she said. Its very painful. Every black person has experienced it on some level. So I went to them and let them know how painful it was for me to know thats what goes on, and as a white person, I wanted to help. Lets create a dialogue to be able to get something out.I just thought the whole thing was moving for me, to experience the courage of this group, knowing that it wasnt necessarily going to be popular, maybe. ... Its about both sides working together. Its not, Were right and youre wrong. Clearly, its been a problem for a long time, and everybody can and needs to be better. Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
