Today the only way to steal this race was to just go. I knew she would fight them off whenever they got close to her and she sure did. She could feel Emboldened coming and she just kept on going. I let her know Dream Tree was coming and she responded well, she was still finishing strong.”JOSEPH TALAMO, EMBOLDENED, SECOND: “She ran really good, she had a good effort last time in the La Brea with a really good third. Today the same thing she came flying home, Danuska didn’t really come back to us. Just a really good honest effort.”TRAINER QUOTESDAN WARD, ASSISTANT TO JERRY HOLLENDORFER, DANUSKA’S MY GIRL, WINNER:  “No question, Geovanni’s made a big difference with this mare.  We like the way he rides.  He’s aggressive and they run for him.  We nominated to this race, because it looked like all the top sprinters ran last week in the Beholder Mile (Grade I, March 30).“I didn’t see a lot of speed, I thought if she breaks out of there well she will be very tough, she usually is when on the lead, also when she works she won’t let anyone by her. She won long last time, she’s done really well with Geovanni, and the time in between races didn’t bother me because she likes the time.”NOTES: The winning owner is Bad Boy Racing, LLC.Bad Boy Racing’s Danuska’s My Girl and jockey Geovanni Franco win the Grade III, $100,000 Las Flores Stakes, Sunday, April 7, 2019 at Santa Anita Park, Arcadia CA. © BENOIT PHOTOlast_img read more


first_imgEarlier, in the Indian Boxing Councils undercard bouts, Siddharth Verma of Maharashtra clinched the IBC Super Welterweight national title by beating Haryanas Dibagh Thakran, a former Commonwealth Championships bronze-medallist. The eight-round contest ended unanimously in Vermas favour. In the heavy weight division, Haryanas Sumit Rangi got the better of debutant Naveen Rao from Delhi in a six round contest. In the light-heavy category, Gaganpreet Sharma from Chandigarh prevailed over Deepak Sheoran in another six-rounder. There was drama in the super bantamweight contest in which former amateur junior world gold-medallist and Commonwealth champion Sunil Siwach made his professional debut. The Indian was up against Thailands Natdanai Pegthong and stunningly had his opponent first on the knees and then on the mat within a few seconds of the opening round of what was to be a six-round affair. Pegthong was thrown off -balance by a stinging right jab and could not recover from the blow, giving Sunil a knockout triumph in his very first bout. Before the Vijender-Hope face-off, there was another India-Australia clash when the undefeated Cameron Hammond took on Devdarshan in a welterweight six-round bout. The Indian fought hard but still fell short as Hammond, who had participated in the 2010 Commonwealth Games here, scored a unanimous victory. But in a fine sporting gesture, Hammond raised his rivals hand after the results were declared to acknowledge the local favourites fine effort. Another highlight of the evening was the four-round clash in Super Lightweight contest between Indian-origin Brit Sanjeev Sahota and Vikas Lohan. Sahota won the bout comfortably and had the crowd on its feet by acknowledging his Indian and Punjabi roots with a little gig to the beats of a Punjabi song before leaving the ring. The crowd was slow to trickle in but filled up by the time Vijender walked in to the now trademark tune of Singh is King. In a special womens bout featuring boxers from Mary Koms Manipur-based academy, Negeinihat defeated Bichong via a unanimous decision. Adding to the entertainment quotient of the night was a performance by Punjabi singer Guru Randhawa. PTI PM AH AHadvertisementlast_img read more

Eat these 6 foods to ease bloating and help digestion

first_imgIf you’re looking to reduce bloating, are suffering from continual stomach gurgles or feeling constipated, it could be that your digestive health has gone a little bit out of whack.Although the above symptoms could be a warning sign of something bigger such as IBS, coeliac disease, or ovarian cancer, and, if experienced frequently should be reason to book in pronto with your GP, they could also be a simple plea from your gut that it needs a little bit of TLC.The good news is that there are plenty of foods to help digestion so pepping up your digestive tract can be a tasty experience.‘More women come to my clinic complaining about bloating than ever before,’ says registered nutritionist and digestive health expert Kym Lang. ‘My clients are always surprised when I tell them that their lifestyle is the culprit, not just their diet. We live our lives at a fast pace and that takes its toll on the gut.‘Snacking on the run, working through lunch, eating late: it all puts pressure on your digestive system. Add in big life stressors, like striving for a promotion and always being “on”, and your gut just can’t cope.‘Digestion is a complex system which needs everything in harmony. When this is interrupted by stress, it can trigger chronic digestive problems like IBS and, putting it bluntly, what you put in your mouth influences what comes out the other end. If you’re eating smoked salmon on rye for lunch and a vegetable stir-fry for dinner, you’re getting antioxidants, fibre and Omega 3 fatty acids – all great for a healthy gut. But if it’s brioche with jam for breakfast and spaghetti carbonara after your run, your digestive system will start to suffer.’So, what are the best foods to help digestion – that also fit into a fast-paced lifestyle? Because, let’s face it, who’s got time to slow things down anytime soon? We asked Lang to share her top powerhouse foods for digestive health.Here are 6 foods to help digestionPORRIDGE OATS‘Oats are an excellent source of resistant starch, a soluble fibre that promotes a healthy colon. It’s digested slowly, so it’s less likely to cause gas and bloating. Eat uncooked oats for maximum benefit, such as overnight oats.’SAUERKRAUT‘Just two tablespoons of sauerkraut provide a good dose of gut-friendly probiotics. Make sure it’s fresh sauerkraut from the supermarket fridge section.’SPELT SOURDOUGH BREAD‘Spelt is an ancient form of wheat that’s lower in gluten as well as fructans, which are a FODMAP (short-chain carbohydrates that can cause digestive problems for people with a sensitive gut, like those with IBS. The sourdough making process makes spelt even more digestible.’ Who has time to make their own? Stock up on the best supermarket sourdough, instead.FRUIT, VEGETABLES AND GRAINS‘Specifically those high in soluble fibre. Getting your 30g of fibre is important – but so is making sure you get the right kind. Soluble fibre dissolves in water and forms a thick gel in the gut, reducing the risk of constipation and painful trips to the toilet. Find it in in oats, fruit and veg like oranges, sweet potato and carrots.’APPLE CIDER VINEGAR‘A tablespoon a day is not just an old wife’s tale. Apple cider vinegar contains acetate, a short chain fatty acid. New research shows that dietary sources of short chain fatty acids could keep our gut cells healthy.’OILY FISH‘One recent study of 69 women found that those with IBS had lower levels of beneficial Omega 3 fatty acids than healthy participants. The best way to get your Omega 3? Oily fish like salmon, mackerel or anchovies. Just stick to two portions a week if you’re pregnant or thinking about starting a family.’Sourcelast_img read more
