first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsThe Beaver Valley Nitehawks exploded for four first-period goals to double the Nelson Leafs 6-3 in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoff action Monday night in Fruitvale.The Hawks now lead the best-of-seven Murdoch Division semi final 3-2 with game six set for Tuesday at the NDCC Arena in Nelson. Game time is 7 p.m. After being called out by head coach Terry Jones, the top line of Ryon Sookro, Chris Derochie and Colton Donselaar came to play as the trio combined for 10 points.“Our top line is a minus-four in the series which is not good enough,” said Jones following game four’s 9-1 collapse in Nelson. Sookro, who has been invisible for most of the series, especially the two games in Nelson, led the charge with three goals, including two in the four-goal first period.The pair by Sookro, combined with single from Arie Postmus and Daniel Bishop, allowed the Hawks to grab a 4-1 lead.Colton Malmsten and Gavin Currie with a shorthanded tally, his second in two games, gave Nelson some life as the Leafs cut the margin to 4-3.But Sookro, who played his entire minor hockey in Nelson, scored on the power play and Donselaar added a single late in the frame to restore the three-goal advantage for the Hawks.Nelson tried to get back into the game with a strong third period, out shooting Beaver Valley 15-8. But Michael Vlanich, pulled during game four, rebounded to shutout the Leafs.“Mike’s been our rock all year long,” said Jones. “He’s been the reason why we finished where we did (in the standings).” Marcus Dahl scored the other goal for Nelson.The third-period surge allowed Nelson to out shoot the Hawks 36-33.BLUELINES: The Hawks rebounded on the power play scoring three times. . . .Beaver Valley center Dallas Calvin, who at one time was tied for the playoff lead in scoring, had a point and now sits tied for sixth in the post-season race. . . .Connor Enright tried to shift the momentum back to the Leafs with a third-period tilt against Jean-William Caron. . . .Joel Stewart was once again not in the lineup for Nelson as Leaf coach Chris Shaw went with most of the same line up that won game four. . . .Patrick Martens led Nelson in scoring with two assists. . . .Colton Donselaar and Ryon Sookro each had four points to lead the Nitehawks. . . .The series winner meets the Castlegar Rebels who knocked off Spokane Braves in the other Murdoch semi final 4-1.

STRONACH’S HOMEBRED SHAMAN GHOST OVERHAULS MIDNIGHT GHOST TO WIN GRADE I, $750,000 SANTA ANITA HANDICAP BY THREE QUARTERS OF A LENGTH UNDER CASTELLANO; JERKENS TRAINEE GETS 1 ¼ MILES IN 2:01.57

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (AP) _ Shaman Ghost beat Midnight Storm by three-quarters of a length to win the $750,000 Santa Anita Handicap on Saturday.Ridden by Javier Castellano, Shaman Ghost ran 1 1/4 miles in 2:01.57 and paid $4.60, $2.60 and $2.40 as the 6-5 favorite.Owner-breeder Frank Stronach was on hand to see his 5-year-old horse win a big race at Santa Anita, which Stronach also owns. Last November, Shaman Ghost was scratched from the Breeders’ Cup Classic on race day at the track after falling ill.Stronach won his third Big `Cap; Milwaukee Brew won in 2002 and ’03.“I was kind of sitting there quiet (watching the race),” he said. “He’s had a lot of bad racing luck and he’s better than what he has shown. Today it all worked out.”In January, Shaman Ghost finished second to Eclipse Award winner Arrogate in the $12 million Pegasus World Cup at Gulfstream Park, another Stronach-owned track.Midnight Storm returned $3 and $2.80 after winning six of his previous seven starts. Follow Me Crev was another 4 1/2 lengths back in third and paid $5 to show.“It was the first time running the mile and a quarter on dirt,” said Rafael Bejarano, who rode Midnight Storm. “He did a really good job.”After shipping in from Florida, Shaman Ghost stalked the pace in third before drifting out to the middle of the track in the stretch run before gaining the lead under Castellano’s urging in front of 29,412 on an unusually hot day.“I knew I had it won at the eighth pole,” Castellano said. “I asked him for full speed at the eighth pole and he gave it to me right away. I said, `Yes!’”Like Stronach, winning trainer Jimmy Jerkens also found some luck at Santa Anita. A year ago, he brought Effinex to the track for the Big `Cap only to have the horse finish third as the favorite after coming down with hives.Castellano moved Shaman Ghost to the outside, away from dirt flying in his face, as they turned for home.“He’s been showing up in all of his races,” Jerkens said, “so I think he should get some respect now.”The victory, worth $450,000, increased Shaman Ghost’s career earnings to $3,539,311, with seven wins in 15 starts.“With not a lot of speed in the race, I had to ask him a little, put him really close to the pace and he responded,” Castellano said. “Very classy horse.”The race was missing two big names among older horses: Arrogate and Hoppertunity. Both are set to run in Dubai later this month.Argentina-bred Hi Happy was fourth, followed by Isotherm, Hard Aces, Twentytwentyvision, Gangster and Imperative.In other stakes:_ Bal a Bali won the $400,345 Frank E. Kilroe Mile by a head over defending champion What a View.Ridden by Castellano, Brazil-bred Bal a Bali ran the distance in 1:33.86 and paid $22.20. He finished third last year.Dortmund was last in the six-horse field in his turf debut for trainer Art Sherman, extending his losing skid to five races dating to last year. Dortmund was previously trained by Bob Baffert before he and owner Kaleem Shah split._ Denman’s Call won the $400,690 Triple Bend Stakes by a length in an upset over 1-2 favorite Masochistic.Ridden by Tyler Baze, Denman’s Call ran seven furlongs in 1:20.94 and paid $35.40 to win.Masochistic won the race two years ago. He was making his first start since finishing second in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint last November and later being disqualified from the $255,000 purse money for testing positive for a steroid.
