One more run for Big Time

first_img Press Association Trainer John Murphy will give Big Time just one more run this season, as he expects the colt to excel next season over further. After winning on his debut at Naas, the Kheleyf colt has finished a half-length second to Sudirman in both the Group Two Railway Stakes and Group One Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh. “I’ve always thought he’d be better over further so it’s been pleasing to see him reach such a high level of form already,” said the County Cork handler. center_img “He’ll move up to seven furlongs now, with the National Stakes the possibility. I don’t think he’ll have more than one more run this year, we’ll put him away after his next (run) and look forward to next year. “It was freaky how the two colts ran exactly to the pound, they are two very exciting horses. “My lad will have no problem staying a mile next season. He’s very exciting and looks like he’ll improve for further, he could be anything. Next year I’ll be able to train him hard – physically he’s very big. “Along with Tuscan Evening, who was also second in a Group One for me before winning Grade Ones in America, he’d be the best on paper I’ve ever had.” last_img read more

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisALPENA, Mich. — The Perseid meteor shower peaks tonight.This is an annual shower that earned it’s name because the meteors will be radiating outwards from the part of the sky that astronomers call Perseus. Perseus was the Greek mythological hero that defeated the snake-haired monster, Medusa.While we might see more shooting stars than usual throughout the week, the best times to view the meteor shower will be today after sunset and tomorrow morning, as Planetarium Coordinator for Besser Museum, Johnathan Winckowski explains. “The best time will be after midnight though as it will take some time for the constellation to rise up above the horizon, so, just keep that in mind,” he said.Winckowski recommends heading to your nearest dark sky park around 10:30 tonight. During the peak times, he says to expect around 60 meteors per hour, making it the best meteor shower for the summer.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Besser Museum, Besser PlanetariumContinue ReadingPrevious Gaylord man found deceased in Montmorency CountyNext U.S. Census Bureau launches statewide door-to-door effort in Michiganlast_img read more
