Voelker versus William Macario and

TORONTO - It hasnt taken Brown Panther long to get settled. Custom Cleveland Browns Jerseys .The British-bred six-year-old arrived at Woodbine Racetrack on Tuesday evening ahead of the $1-million Pattison Canadian International this weekend. Assistant trainer Christopher Ely said the early 2-1 favourite has shown no ill effects from the trip, which isnt good news for the remaining nine horses in the field for the 1 1/2-mile turf event.Hes eating everything, hes drinking everything, we gave him exercise (Thursday) morning, hes fresh and hes happy, Ely said following the race draw at Woodbine. The big part is hes eating ... but he takes everything well.Then again, travel is nothing new for the son of 2005 Breeders Cup Turf champion Shirocco. Brown Panther has competed in England, Germany, Ireland, France and Australia and his 10 career victories have come at nine different tracks.Ely said one of Brown Panthers strengths is his ability to adapt to any surface, leaving Ely unconcerned about the potential of challenging conditions on the Woodbine turf on Sunday afternoon.I think everything will be right as long as weve got a good gallop and we can get him settled, Ely said. He looks like hes better being up with the pace.As long as weve got a good gallop well be very happy.There is a chance of rain on the weekend and Sundays high is expected to be just 8 C.Brown Panther has finished in the money in 17 of his 24 starts and earned just over $1.1 million. He won his last outing, the Grade 1 1 3/4-mile Irish St. Leger at the Curragh on Sept. 14 by 6 1/2 lengths at 14-1 odds.Brown Panther also has definite star appeal as hes co-owned by former English soccer star Michael Owen, who also bred the horse.Owen wasnt at Woodbine on Thursday as he was inducted into the English Hall of Fame at the National Football Museum in Manchester, England. However, he is expected to be on hand for Sundays race. The card also includes the Grade 1 $500,000 E.P. Taylor over 1 1/4-miles for fillies and mares and Grade 2 $300,000 Nearctic at six furlongs.The International fields leading money winner is Big Blue Kitten, the 3-1 second choice with almost $1.3 million in earnings. The American-bred six-year-old will break from the No. 9 post.Big Blue Kitten has raced just three times this year, recording a win and a second-place finish. Jockey Joel Rosario, who guided Hyper to a second-place result behind Joshua Tree in last years International, will ride Big Blue Kitten for the first time.Big Blue Kitten comes off a fourth-place finish Sept. 27 in the Turf Classic, 2 1/4-lengths behind winner Main Sequence at Belmont Park.It was a little disappointing, we really liked him going into the race, trainer Chad Brown said. It wasnt a bad effort but it wasnt a winning effort either.But he came out of the race in great shape. Hes training well.Hillstar, a four-year-old British-bred, is the 5-1 third choice and drew the No. 7 post. Trainer Sir Michael Stoute won the International in 96 with Singspiel and has been second twice (Shardari in 1986, Ask in 2007) and third (Daliapour, 2000).Jockey Ryan Moore, who guided Joshua Tree to victory in this race last year, will ride Hillstar. The horse comes off a Group 3 win at Newbury on Sept. 20, his lone victory in six starts this year.I think a mile and a half is his best trip, Stoute said. He (Brown Panther) beat me at Chester in May but that was an extended mile and five (furlongs).He just outstayed me that day. I would be hopeful I could beat him at a mile and a half.Dynamic Sky and Pyrite Mountain are the two Canadian-bred horses in the race.Five Canadian-bred horses have won the International since it became a turf event in 1958. They include George Royal (1965, 66), Hes a Smoothie (1967), Sky Classic (1991), Chief Bearhart (1997) and Thornfield (1999).Dynamic Sky, the four-year-old son of Sky Mesa, has won four of 18 career starts and was third in last years Queens Plate. Conditioned by Mark Casse, named Canadas top trainer on six occasions, Dynamic Sky comes off a second-place finish in the Grade 1 Northern Dancer on Sept. 14 at Woodbine.Casse is happy to be heading into the International on a high note.He needed that rest and hes come back well from that, Casse said. When the horse breezed ahead of the race, (jockey) Patrick (Husbands) couldnt wait to call me.He said thats the best hes ever been.Pyrite Mountain returns to Woodbine after being sold and run in the U.S. in his first three races of the year, all second-place efforts. The four-year-old son of Silent Name is a two-time winner in 13 career starts and was seventh in last years Queens Plate.Irish-bred Just The Judge is the early 7-5 favourite for the E.P. Taylor Stakes. Deceptive Vision, owned by Sam-Son Farms of Milton, Ont., is the 2-1 second choice.Ten horses will go postward in the Nearctic, including Bold Venture Stakes winner Calgary Cat, British-bred Caspar Netscher and Connaught Cup champion Excaper.———The International field with post, horse, jockey and odds includes:1. OPrado Ole, Channing Hill, 20-1; 2. The Pizza Man, Florent Geroux, 6-1; 3. Suntracer, Carlos Marquez Jr., 12-1; 4. Brown Panther, Richard Kingscote, 2-1; 5. Dynamic Sky, Patrick Husbands, 15-1; 6.

"Canada," Bolland said with a smile. "Is that a question?" One day earlier, though, fellow Toronto Maple Leafs centre Nazem Kadri wasnt so sure his home and native land could pull off the win against the United States in the semi-finals of the Olympic hockey tournament. Shon Coleman Jersey . No such luck. Wiggins owned the end of Parkers impressive homecoming. The Kansas star scored 16 of his 22 points in the second half, outplaying Parker down the stretch and helping the fifth-ranked Jayhawks knock off No.TORONTO -- Another chapter to the post-Georges St-Pierre welterweight story will be written at UFC 171, with No. 2 contender Carlos (The Natural Born Killer) Condit taking on Tyron (The Chosen One) Woodley. The title recently vacated by St-Pierre will be on the line at the March 15 card in Dallas when No. 1 contender Johny (Bigg Rigg) Hendricks faces No. 3 (Ruthless) Robbie Lawler (22-9 with one no contest). Hendricks (15-2) is coming off a controversial split decision loss to St-Pierre at UFC 167 last month. The Condit-Woodley winner could become the next title contender. The 170-pound championship has belonged to St-Pierre since he won it back from Matt (The Terror) Serra at UFC 83 in Montreal in April 2008. St-Pierre (25-2) beat Condit at UFC 154 in November 2012. Condit (29-7) has beaten Martin (The Hitman) Kampmann and lost to Hendricks since then. The Condit-Woodley announcement Tuesday means that seven of the UFCs top 10 welterweights have fights scheduled. Condit was due to meet No. 8 Matt (The Immortal) Brown last Saturday on a televised card in Sacramento but the fight was called off when Brown (20-11) was sidelined with a back injury. The unranked Woodley had campaigned on Twitter to be Browns replacement. Woodley (12-2) is coming off an impressive first-round TKO win over veeteran Josh Koscheck. Bernie Kosar Jersey. The 31-year-old from St Louis went 8-0 in Strikeforce before losing via fourth-round TKO to Nate (The Great) Marquardt in a title bout. He opened his UFC account with a first-round stoppage of Jay Hieron before losing a close decision to Jake Shields. Shields, ranked seventh among 170 pounders, is expected to meet Hector Lombard at UFC 171. Montreals Rory MacDonald, ranked fourth, is to fight No. 6 Demian Maia at UFC UFC 170 on Feb. 22 in Las Vegas. And No. 10 Tarec (Sponge) Saffiedine takes on Hyun Gyu Lim on a televised card Jan. 4 in Singapore. The only ranked welterweights currently without fights are Brown, No. 5 Jake (The Juggernaut) Ellenberger and No. 9 Kampmann. Other UFC welterweight matchups already announced include: -- Bobby Voelker versus William Macario and Siyar Bahadurzada versus John Howard at UFC 168, Dec. 28 in Las Vegas. -- Luiz Dutra versus Kiichi Kunimoto, Jan. 4 in Singapore -- Adlan Amagov versus Jason High, Jan. 15 in Atlanta. -- T.J. Waldburger versus Mike Pyle, UFC 170, Feb. 22 in Las Vegas. -- Alex Garcia versus Sean Spencer, UFC 171, March 15 in Dallas.
