Debut V was bred by Jim McKay of Shady Maple Farms, who has earned a reputation for producing cross-bred sport horses.The purpose of the Jump Canada Young Horse Series is to encourage the development of young show jumping talent and to give Canadian breeders additional incentives to breed superior show jumping prospects. Competing on a level playing field, the horses are divided according to age and jump at a level suited to their development. This careful development allows the horses to gain valuable experience and advance to the higher levels of show jumping competition with confidence. The Jump Canada Young Horse Series also gives prospective buyers for the hunter and jumper markets an opportunity to view a large group of prospects in a competition setting.The 2010 Jump Canada Young Horse Series is truly national in scope with competitions being held from coast to coast. The National Young Horse Finals will take place at the Canadian Show Jumping Tournament held from September 22-26 in Palgrave, ON.For more information on the Jump Canada Young Horse Series, including rules and registration forms, please visit http://www.equinecanada.ca/jumpcanada/index.php?option=com_content&task=category&id=88&Itemid=3.Jump Canada Young Horse Series – Caledon National, Palgrave, ONSeven and Eight-Year-Old DivisionHorse Owner Rider1.

Utah Utes basketball: Same old story for reeling Utes

first_img Utah Utes basketball game at a glance Related LARAMIE, Wyo. — Even a different starting lineup couldn’t cure the Utah basketball team’s problems as the Utes dropped their fourth straight game Saturday afternoon, falling to Wyoming 72-64 at Arena- Auditorium.It was the same old story as the Utes couldn’t make outside shots, couldn’t make key stops and missed their foul shots — again.The loss leaves the Utes at 15-12 on the year and 6-8 in Mountain West Conference play, just a game ahead of Wyoming, which improved to 12-16 and 5-10.”We don’t make enough plays to win,” said Utah coach Jim Boylen. “We outrebound them, we get 16 more shots, we have less turnovers. The discrepancy is at the free-throw line. We only get 10 and make five, they get 27 and make 26. You’ve got to give them credit, they made their free throws.”This game was similar to the one in Salt Lake City, where the Utes lost by a similar score, 69-64. Like last time, they got a good game from Luke Nevill (22 points on 9-of-15 shooting), but couldn’t make their outside shots (3-of-12 from 3-point range) and they fell behind early again and just couldn’t catch up.After trailing by four at halftime, the Utes fell behind by 11 only to rally within four with just over two minutes left. However, the Utes couldn’t make defensive stops, allowing the Cowboys to score on their last seven possessions over the final five minutes.”The last five minutes we just didn’t have the energy or toughness to stay in front of them,” Boylen said. “(Brandon) Ewing makes two plays — he makes the 3 and the jumper. I thought those two plays were the difference in the game.”Up until that point, the Utes had done a great job on the Cowboys’ leading scorer, holding him to just seven points. However, with 2:04 left, he raised up and sank a 3-pointer from the top of the key and after Nevill scored inside, Ewing made a tough shot in the lane to give the Cowboys a 64-57 lead with 1:18 left.Brad Jones, playing in his final home game, led the Cowboys with 20 points, while Joseph Taylor and Tyson Johnson each had 12, in addition to Ewing’s 14.Besides Nevill, two other Utes scored in double figures — Johnnie Bryant with 15 and Luka Drca with 12.After losing three straight games, Boylen decided to shake up his starting lineup for the first time since late November when Carlon Brown replaced an injured Stephen Weigh in the starting lineup, with Drca and Kim Tille replacing Tyler Kepkay and Luke Nevill.It didn’t seem to help as the Utes fell behind 8-2, failing to score on five straight possessions after an opening basket by Drca.The Utes still trailed 22-16 after a technical foul on Boylen, but came back with seven straight points on a Brown drive, a Green follow and a left-handed shot by Nevill to take their last lead of the day. However, the Cowboys made four straight free throws to end the half and take a 28-24 lead.After the Utes tied it, Wyoming scored seven quick points and pushed the lead to 47-36 with 11:03 left before the Utes made their late rally behind Nevill.”This was a great win for us over a program with a great tradition,” said Wyoming coach Heath Schroyer. “Going into the game, I thought we had to limit their 3s. Nevill is so skilled and so big I thought if we double-teamed him, it would allow him to pass over the top and find their shooters.” The Utes return home for their final home game of the season Tuesday night against Colorado State and conclude their regular season Saturday against UNLV. Then it’s off to the Mountain West Conference Tournament the following week in Las Vegas.

Allen looking to regroup in new-look Steelers secondary

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen (28) goes through agility drills during an NFL football organized team activity, Thursday, May 28, 2015 in Pittsburgh. Allen started the 2014 season with a big pay raise but he ended up injured and is now working his way back into the starting lineup. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic)PITTSBURGH (AP) _ The Pittsburgh Steelers paid Cortez Allen last fall to take over the shutdown cornerback role that Ike Taylor handled for the better part of a decade.The Steelers hardly got their money’s worth, and Allen knows it.A 2014 that began with a five-year, $25 million contract ended with Allen on injured reserve and his confidence decreased.The smart, physical play that highlighted his breakout 2013 crumbled into an avalanche of missed assignments and eventually missed time.It would be easy to call the experience humbling, but that would assume Allen needed to be humbled. Humility has never been an issue for the 26-year-old Citadel graduate.Production, however, is another matter. And Allen is only too aware that two interceptions and a spot on the bench isn’t what Pittsburgh had in mind when the franchise dug into its wallet to keep him from hitting free agency.That doesn’t mean Allen spent the offseason moping. It wouldn’t do any good.“I’ll never say: `woe is me.’ I’ve never been that kind of guy, and I’ll never be that kind of guy,” Allen said. “I’m going to do whatever I can to help my teammates, regardless of how I feel.”Don’t get him wrong, everything feels better than it did six months ago, when the Steelers put Allen and his surgically repaired thumb on injured reserve to end a disastrous season.While some of his teammates spent the winter and early spring in Pittsburgh, Allen stayed away in search of peace of mind and the form that made him one of the team’s most pleasant surprises in 2013.Secondary coach Carnell Lake didn’t mind Allen’s absence. Every defensive back gets beat. The good ones find a way to not let one play affect the next. It’s a vital part of Allen’s development, one helped by getting as far away _ physically and mentally _ from 2014 as possible.Lake encouraged Allen to “get some sunshine and kind of let those green buds sprout and come on back.”The Allen that showed up for the first week of organized team activities this week understands Pittsburgh needs him to take a step forward, particularly with Taylor in retirement.Taylor’s departure leaves Allen and William Gay as the two longest-tenured cornerbacks on a team that gave up plenty of big plays last fall even as it won the AFC North title.Pittsburgh put together a backup plan, taking Mississippi’s Senquez Golson and Ohio State’s Doran Grant in the draft.The Steelers would prefer to have the rookies get comfortable in the NFL instead of thrusting them onto the field too soon. An improved version of Allen would help.“I expect to be better in all aspects,” Allen said.Particularly when it comes to looking for the ball. The first half of 2014 was littered with plays where Allen would be in position only to get beat when he failed to turn his head around in time.By the middle of the year he’d been supplanted by Brice McCain and spent a Monday night win over Tennessee standing on the sideline watching as Pittsburgh’s season went on without him. A week later, he was on injured reserve.It led to some soul-searching. Fortunately Allen had a guide in Taylor.“Ike always emphasized to be honest with yourself and how you played, your preparation, everything you do,” Allen said. “Because if you’re not honest in how you correct things and lie to yourself, how can you correct things and get better? So, growing up with Ike, I learned how to be a professional.”Developing thick skin is part of the job. And Allen could always rely on his teammates, who never hesitated to drop him a line and never wavered in their support.“I didn’t doubt him at all,” Blake said. “Everyone goes through a rough patch every once in a while.”Allen stressed he can “be as good as I want to be.” That includes getting back to a habit he’d gotten away from in Pittsburgh. The Citadel isn’t exactly a factory for NFL players.Allen proved to be an unlikely success story by becoming his own best critic. His goal is to test himself so much that when opponents do it in the fall, he’s prepared.“It’s a challenge that I fully expect,” he said. “So, whether or not it’s difficult, it’s my job and it’s what I do and it’s what I love doing.”___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img
