SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- What everybody hoped would be a storybook ending to an incredible day of racing at Saratoga on Saturday didnt quite turn out as most had expected, with Lady Elis comeback in the Grade 2 Ballston Spa spoiled by an unlikely nemesis, the 27-1 Strike Charmer.Lady Eli came into the Ballston Spa off nearly a 14-month layoff. She developed laminitis in both front feet shortly after running her record to 6 for 6 with a victory in the Grade 1 Belmont Oaks Invitational in July 2015. To say she defied the odds just making it back to the races at all would be an understatement. But in the end, the combination of the long layoff and a big performance by Strike Charmer proved just a bit too much to overcome.Strike Charmer benefitted from a fast pace and a perfectly judged ride by Junior Alvarado, who rated her at the rear of the pack and well off the pace set by Lady Elis stablemate Sympathy. Miss Temple City was the first to challenge the leader, taking command on the second turn of the 1-1/16-mile turf race with both Lady Eli and Strike Charmer on the move.Lady Eli rallied wide off the final turn and forged to a short advantage inside the eighth pole. Alvarado followed Ladi Eli while keeping Strike Charmer widest of all into the stretch. Lady Eli continued on gamely, but Strike Charmer finished best of all out past the center of the track to register a three-quarter-length decision while setting a stakes record of 1:38.77 over the firm turf.Strike Charmer, a Grade 3 winner earlier in the season, was coming off a fifth-place finish while beaten less than two lengths in the Grade 1 Diana earlier in the meet. She paid $57.50.I didnt think theyd go that fast early, but we knew where we needed to be with the pace going that way, said Mark Hennig, who trains the homebred Strike Charmer for the Courtlandt Farm of owners Donald and Donna Adam. Junior got off of her last time and said she was making up ground and wasnt really extending herself. So he felt like having learned something from riding her once, that he would be wide and kind of sit. Lady Eli took the overland route and I thought he did a great job hiding out behind her and letting her pounce, and we were fortunate enough to run her down today.Hennig said defeating a filly of Lady Elis reputation made winning a race like the Ballston Spa all the more special.Its an amazing story that shes come back from what she has, said Hennig. Any time that happens, we all feel it in the industry, but we dont mind raining on her parade today.Trainer Chad Brown was humble in defeat following Lady Elis first setback in seven career starts.Im disappointed that she got beat, but Im happy shes back to the races, said Brown. It looked like she got a little tired that last part. She made a big move there on the turn into a wicked pace and it just took a little too much out of her. We could have played it safe and just retired her. But shes perfectly sound, she has a huge following, and she acted like she wanted to run.Shes going to move forward and build off this, and were going to work our way to the Breeders Cup. Cheap Atlanta Hawks Jerseys .J. Jefferson has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend. China Hawks Jerseys . They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. http://www.cheaphawksjerseys.us/ . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Kevin Huerter Jersey . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Atlanta Hawks Jerseys Online . P.A. Parenteau scored early in the third period to help the Avs edge Toronto 2-1 on Tuesday night. Cory Sarich also scored for Colorado (3-0-0), which is off to its best ever start. BOSTON -- The Los Angeles Kings, spending most of December on the road, bring their traveling road show into Boston for a Sunday matinee.And when they hit the ice for fourth game of a nine-game journey, they will face a Bruins team missing its leading goal scorer.David Pastrnak, the 20-year-old who has carried the Boston offense this season, underwent right elbow surgery for the removal of an olecranon bursa on Friday. He is officially listed as day to day and expected to be out at least two games. But teammate David Backes missed five games earlier this season with the same surgery.Its not a fun little procedure hes going through, Backes said, but hes in the hands of great doctors and hopefully hell be back even sooner than I was.Pastrnak has only one goal in the last four games, but six in the last seven and his 19, four more than all of last season, are more than twice anyone else on the roster.He is also a team-best plus-15 and is second in the NHL to Sidney Crosby in goals.Its never easy when you hear that kind of news for one of your better players this year, so those are challenges you have to face and get through, coach Claude Julien said Saturday. Well certainly do our best to get some wins here without him.Peter Budaj, the workhorse Kings goalie with Jonathan Quick expected to be out until mid-February, shut down Sidney Crosby and the high-scoring Penguins in a 1-0 overtime victory on Friday night, shouldnt have as much trouble with the offensively challenged Bruins without Pastrnak. Boston has scored two goals or less in 21 of its 32 games.In Pittsburgh, Budaj, pulled from his previous start in Buffalo in the first game of the trip, made 39 saves in ending the Penguins seven-game winning streak.Thats the most important thing is to win, said Budaj, who notched his third shutout of the season after Quick was lost in the opener. The shutoout is like the cherry on the cake.ddddddddddddIt feels great.The Bruins have lost five of their last six, getting at least one point in three of the six. They have lost three in a row at home, where they are 7-8 this season -- and it was poor play on home ice that cost Boston a playoff berth for a second straight season last year.The Bruins won in overtime in Montreal on Monday night, then lost in OT at Pittsburgh on Wednesday, then lost at home to Anaheim in the third game in four nights.And the Kings went into Pittsburgh Friday and won.Circle the wagons and stick together. Thats what we do, LA coach Darryl Sutter said.Saturday marked the fifth anniversary of Sutter, winner of two Stanley Cups, agreeing to coach the Kings.Dean (GM Lombardi) had called me a couple times just to see if I was interested in coaching again, not implying anything. And we talked off and on anyways about different things, Sutter told the LA Times. My intent always was, Id sort of left my window open, but there were only three or four places Id go because I wasnt going just to coach somewhere again.So he left his Viking, Alberta, farm for the job and is still there.The Kings opened this trip with a 6-3 loss at Buffalo and then won 4-1 in the finale at Joe Louis Arena before winning Friday. They have a mandatory day off Monday, visit Columbus on Tuesday and still have to go to Nashville, Dallas, Vancouver and Edmonton before finally playing at home Dec. 31.The Bruins, who had to benefit from two days without a game, host the New York Islanders on Tuesday before a four-game trip and a Dec. 31 return home. The road, however, isnt scary for this Bruins team, which is 9-5-3 away from home.The Kings won both meetings between the teams last season.
