Rise Up on paper appears to be the controlling speed in the $250,000 Delta Downs Mile on Saturday. His trainer, Tom Amoss, would welcome such a scenario.Its no secret what our strategy is going to be, Amoss said. Hes a horse that goes to the front and we want to take advantage of that. Thats going to be the plan, to go to the front and hopefully carry it all the way around.The Delta Mile is one of eight stakes on the $2.3 million Jackpot program in Vinton, La. The race also serves as the first leg of an all-stakes pick four on races 4-7. There is a $200,000 minimum guaranteed pool and a takeout rate of 12 percent. The forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of 65 degrees. Delta will have a first post of 1:45 p.m. Central, and the races will be streamed live on DRF.com.Rise Up, a 5-year-old millionaire by Rockport Harbor who races for Paul Van Doren, has been a Delta Downs star since he was 2. He won the tracks Jean Lafitte and Grade 3, $1 million Jackpot, and then returned last season to dominate a local allowance. Rise Up got the call for this years Delta Mile after registering a pair of authoritative wins, one in an allowance at Ellis Park, and then in the $100,000 Wild and Wonderful Stakes at Charles Town.Hes really had kind of a resurgence this summer, starting with the race at Ellis and carrying over to the race at Charles Town, Amoss said. They were races were used to seeing him run, that it took a while to get back to.Rise Ups record on the six-furlong oval at Delta is 3 for 5 with earnings of $773,800.He has an affinity for those tight turns, Amoss said. Hes very athletic on those turns.Javier Castellano has the mount on Rise Up, who will break from post 4 in a field of seven.Rise Up will face Great Minds, who is 2 for 2 at Delta. His wins include the $75,000 Borgata here in March, a race that served as his springboard to victory in the Grade 3, $200,000 Texas Mile at Lone Star Park.Fear the Cowboy is another who has won at Delta. He enters Saturdays race off a fourth-place finish to Noble Bird in the $175,000 Lukas Classic at Churchill Downs. Noble Bird went on to win the Grade 2 Fayette at Keeneland. Fear the Cowboy has been working regularly at Delta.Sammy Mandeville, who has placed in three stakes, invades from Southern California for W C Racing.Hes such an honest horse, said trainer Doug ONeill. Lately, the waters have been so deep we had to point him outside of Southern California. The game plan is to hopefully run really well Saturday, then have him stay back with Tom Amoss for a Midwest campaign. There are more options for him in the Midwest than in Southern California.* The second leg of the pick four is the $75,000 Sams Town, a seven-furlong race run around two turns. It is restricted to 3-year-olds and up who have never won a stakes. A field of 10 is set to start, led by The Truth Or Else.The Truth Or Else, who at 2 finished third in the Grade 1 Champagne at Belmont, enters Saturdays race in peak form. He took down an optional $100,000 claiming sprint at Keeneland on Oct. 23. Julien Leparoux was aboard the horse for the first time, and has the mount again Saturday. The Truth Or Else will break from post 3.Hes been a horse when we raised him [up into a stakes], he struggled with it, said trainer Ken McPeek. The restriction on this race is a big deal - horses that hadnt won a stakes yet. I also like the fact that hes got Julien back on him.One test, said McPeek, will be the two-turn configuration of the race. The Truth Or Elses last three wins have come in one-turn races.* In Kathballu, McPeek has the probable favorite in the $75,000 Orleans, the Sams Town counterpart for fillies and mares. She exits a fourth-place finish in the Grade 2 Chilukki at Churchill.* Steel Cut will be looking for her third stakes win of the year in the $200,000 Treasure Chest, a one-mile race for fillies and mares which goes with a field of five. Robby Albarado has the mount for trainer Wes Hawley.* The stakes action starts in the third with the $150,000 Louisiana Jewel, a mile race for 2-year-old fillies bred in Louisiana. The field includes stakes winner Chases Dixie Belle and the stakes-placed Jazz Lady and Big Game Baby.* The counterpart for 2-year-olds, the Louisiana Legacy, is led by Jack Snipes.

Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count?

LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. Scarpe Uomo 350 Nubuck Adidas. Bjorn, who had a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, made a testing six-foot putt to save par on the 16th and a birdie on the 17th before bogeying the final hole after a misjudged approach shot.

The Americans went on to rout Japan 6-1 in the Pool B contest Wednesday to earn a slot in the quarterfinals.In their first two matches at the Olympics, the Americans struggled early before finishing strong to beat Argentina and Australia. This time, they avoided a sluggish start on a rainy, dreary evening with temperatures in the mid-60s.That was definitely a newer experience for us, Bam said. Weve been working on that. Today, we just got up there real fast, managed to get a corner. That gives you a bit of a confidence booster to continue to propel putting goals away.The Americans improved to 3-0 at the Olympics and leapfrogged Britain for the top spot in the pool by moving ahead in goal differential. The United States is plus seven, while the Brits are plus five. Britain defeated Argentina 3-2 earlier in the day to remain unbeaten.Really important game for us tonight, USA coach Craig Parnham said. Japan were a very, very difficult team.

Beating No. 10 Japan was a different type of challenge.Games like this are statement games for us, Bam said. Its easy to step up and play the people that are ranked higher than you. Its hard to step up and bury a team like we just did thats ranked lower than you.Katie Reinprecht scored late in the second period to make it 3-0 at halftime. Jill Witmer scored for the United States in the third period, and Bam scored twice in the fourth.Japan fell to 0-2-1.The United States will face India on Thursday, then close pool play with a showdown against Britain on Saturday.
