Cherry Wine and Cupid -- those are the names best known among 12 entrants in the Indiana Derby on Saturday night at Indiana Grand, and they will be bet accordingly. Cupid burst onto the national scene by winning the Rebel Stakes in March and still carries expectations, even after two far-lesser performances. Cherry Wine placed in a classic race, finishing second in the Preakness, and would have run in the Kentucky Derby had he the qualifying points to make the field. His name has been bandied about racing circles for months.On their day, and with the right setup, either can win the Grade 2, $500,000 Indiana Derby. But neither has to. There are plenty of other ways to go, with less-exposed, lighter-raced horses like The Player and Takeittotheedge perhaps ready to step into the limelight.Everyone, in fact, will be under lights when the local derby is run at approximately 9:41 p.m. Eastern. The race is the last of six stakes, all worth at least $100,000, on what might be the best card ever assembled at Indiana Grand, and it ends an all-stakes pick four spanning races 6 through 9. The Grade 2, $200,000 Indiana Oaks goes as race 8 on a program that begins at 6:05 on what is forecast to be a beautiful evening.Key ContendersTakeittotheedge, by Broken VowLast 3 Beyers: 79-62-88The upset win choice brims with upside. He turned in one of the more impressive debuts of the Gulfstream winter meeting, winning a seven-furlong maiden race by almost eight lengths March 5 and coming home a strong final furlong.Trainer Dale Romans thought enough of the colt to run him right back in the Florida Derby about a month after his debut, but Takeittotheedge never had a chance, stumbling badly at the start.Surely needed his comeback run June 5, in which he finished third behind the well-regarded Forevamo. Should be sharpened up and positioned just off the speed Saturday.DRF Formulator shows Romans with a $2.18 return on investment from 265 starters over the last four years in two-turn graded-stakes races, and that does not include Court Visions 64-1 victory in the 2011 Breeders Cup Mile.The Player, by Street HeroLast 3 Beyers: 86-83-84Powerful-looking, late-developing colt makes his stakes and two-turn debut after two Churchill one-turn-mile wins.The timing of the race is kind of why we picked this out, trainer Buff Bradley said. He was a little tired after his second win, and this gave him five weeks. Also, we felt that since were going to be stretching him out, we didnt want to do the mile and an eighth yet, and the mile and a sixteenth looked attractive.The Player has shown good speed and looked slightly headstrong early in his last win. If hes too eager early, he risks a pace battle, at least with Cupid if not others.Cherry Wine, by Paddy OPradoLast 3 Beyers: 89-96-88While his one-paced seventh in the Belmont Stakes is forgivable, hell probably be overbet off his Preakness, a race in which he skipped over slop and got a great pace setup while still well beaten by the victorious Exaggerator. Cherry Wine has two wins from 10 starts and has never won a stakes.I really didnt think Id run him back this quick, Romans said. I was going to give him a little bit more time, but were right here at home in our backyard.One-run closer will need a solid pace and luck to get up at a short price.Cupid, by TapitLast 3 Beyers: 85-78-95Had a breathing problem -- for which he subsequently underwent a minor surgical procedure -- that led to his poor performance in the Arkansas Derby. But trainer Bob Baffert said Cupid got his air without issue last out and attributed another sub-par run in the Easy Goer at Belmont to the configuration of that race.He just didnt like the one turn, Baffert said. Things got away from him there.Seems certain to try for the lead from post 11 under Rafael Bejarano but might have to work to get it.Star Hill, by Elusive QualityLast 3 Beyers: 92-87-80All signs point to him being vastly better at one turn than around two, and he is marooned in post 12. http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Fletcher-Cox-Jersey/ . The home side created most of the chances but struggled to break down Braunschweigs resilient defence, resulting in the Bundesligas 1,000th scoreless draw. http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Chris-Long-Jersey/ . Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Rodney-Mcleod-Jersey/ .ca. Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count? All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not. http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Jordan-Hicks-Jersey/ . "We have always prided ourselves on the way we play defence. Having two big pieces back is going to be a key for us moving forward for years to come," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen. http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Jake-Elliott-Jersey/ . One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. The managers have come and gone opposite Arsene Wenger on the touchline in this London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea. Some for better and some for worse as the Gunners and Blues have made themselves top-four fixtures in the Premier League table for most of the past 20 years during the Frenchmans reign.Antonio Conte becomes the 12th boss for Chelsea to match wits with Le Professeur as the two teams meet Saturday at the Emirates looking to consolidate their position among the elites.All told, Wenger has been part of 50 league and cup matches against Chelsea, facing the likes of Ruud Gullit, Claudio Ranieri, Guus Hiddink and of course, archnemesis Jose Mourinho. He fared well against Gullit with four wins in as many matches and his mastery of Ranieri -- Arsenal did hand league champions Leicester City two of their three losses last season -- has its roots in this rivalry as he lost just once in 14 matches against the Tinkerman (8-5-1) while the two resided in London.Conversely, Hiddink always seemed to find a way to beat Wenger despite his status as caretaker manager, winning all three matches head-to-head. Then there is Mourinho, with whom he will renew hostilities Nov. 19 at Old Trafford against Manchester United. Wenger went winless in 14 matches (0-6-8) before getting a victory in the Community Shield -- which of course matters little in the grand scheme -- prior to the start of last season.Into this timeline steps Conte, the former Italian national and Juventus coach whose last domestic season ended in 2014 with the Turin side claiming their third Serie A title in as many seasons he guided them.The frenetic manager has quickly put his fingerprints on Chelsea (3-1-1), and his team showed a strong amount of resiliency Tuesday following a Sept. 16 home loss to Liverpool, rallying from two goals down to defeat Leicester City 4-2 in extra time and advance to the round of 16 in the EFL Cup at West Ham United next month.I saw a great reaction from my players and my team, Conte told Chelseas official website. This is very important because they showed a great heart and a will to win and go in the next round. It wasnt easy at 2-0 and after a defeat in the last game.We know that we can improve, I repeat this. The only way I know to continue is to work hard and to improve on different aspects.The win also served as a vindication for Cesc Fabregas, who was largely a forgotten man to Conte and has logged only 32 minutes in league play. The midfielder scored both of Chelseas goals in extra time and hit out at reporters who claimed his play is on the decline.Hopefully this will help shut a few journalists up who are talking rubbish all the time, and focus on whats important: Chelsea winning, playing well and when I have the chance (to) show what I can do, because I know what I can do and its a lot for this team, he said.In fourth place on 10 points and ahhead of Chelsea on goal difference, Arsenal (3-1-1) also have shown plenty of mettle since their season-opening defeat to Liverpool.dddddddddddd The Gunners are unbeaten in six on the spin (4-2-0) and also booked a fourth-round date in the EFL by rolling 4-0 at Nottingham Forest. Lucas Perez had a brace on either side of goals by Granit Xhaka and Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain.The win was a stark contrast to last seasons League Cup foray, when Arsenal were overrun 3-0 at Sheffield Wednesday in the third round, and Wenger used the defeat as a teaching point this time around.I think our history helped us a little bit tonight to start in a much stronger way, Wenger told the teams official website. Overall I felt that technically we played well, our combinations worked well and we played at a high pace and thats where we made the difference in the game.For Xhaka, it was the second goal in as many matches, and the Switzerland international is living up to the form that made him Arsenals marquee early summer signing before the late additions of Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez.Though Xhaka is in form ahead of his first London derby and Mourinho is off in Manchester, Wenger still must stare directly at his failures in this series over recent years and have his team keep their cool. Arsenal have not scored in the last seven matches between the teams in all competitions -- losing five -- and the drought is 662 minutes dating to Theo Wolcotts consolation marker in a 2-1 defeat Jan. 20, 2013.All told, Arsenal are 0-3-7 against Chelsea since a 5-3 triumph Oct. 29, 2011.In last seasons two losses, Arsenal played short-handed for most of both contests, finishing the 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge with nine men as Diego Costa goaded Gabriel into kicking him for a second yellow card in the first half before Santi Carzola got his marching orders on 79 minutes for a second caution.In the return encounter, Costa drew Per Mertesacker into a brutal challenge in the 18th minute -- resulting in a direct red card -- and scored the match-winner five minutes later to help Chelsea complete the double. Given Costas rich vein of goal-scoring -- his five tallies tie him with West Hams Michail Antonio for the league lead -- keeping him contained will not be the simplest of tasks.Itd be nice to keep 11 men on the pitch against Chelsea this time round, Oxlade-Chamberlain told the Arsenal Player. I know it sounds funny but generally speaking in the last few games against them, its always a big clash with a lot of emotions and maybe some mind games.First and foremost, its a massive game and we just need to keep our disciple;ine and stay in the game. … Its going to be a big occasion but we cant get too caught up in it, we just need to go out and play our game.
