Hallandale Beach, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Sky Flight, ridden by Jose Lezcano, made a successful move into stakes company by winning Saturdays $75,000 Tropical Park Derby at Gulfstream Park. Trained by Mark Casse for John Oxley, Sky Flight broke from the inside post as the 9-2 third pick in the 12-horse field of 3-year-olds going 1 1/16 miles on the turf. Smooth Daddy was the 5-2 favorite with Other Cheek the 3-1 second choice. A veteran of three prior starts, Sky Flight made it three wins in a row with Saturdays stakes victory. The colt didnt start to run until the final turn when Lezcano, aboard for the first time, moved his mount to the outside. The race seemed to set up for us. He was going good and I wasnt going to rush him, ask him to do something he doesnt want to do, Lezcano said. He was comfortable and when I asked him to run he closed really well. Sky Flight ran down pacesetter Cement Clement nearing the wire and was able to post a length victory over the 25-1 longshot. Getting third was Smooth Daddy with Cabo Cat fourth. Hes been forwardly placed in his other races, but obviously the pace was a lot hotter today. Jose did the right thing and had him a little farther off the pace and it set up perfectly, said Norman Casse, assistant to his father. Jose rode a great race. Completing the order finish were Daddys Kid, Best Plan Yet, Other Cheek, My Storm Trooper, Morning Calm, Breitling Flyer and Roman Approval. Wallyanna was pulled up on the backstretch. Bashart and Ironicus were scratched. The time for the Tropical Park Derby was 1:40.25 on a firm turf course. Sky Flight received his largest paycheck of $43,245, increasing his earnings to $105,445 with three wins in four starts. Racing exclusively on grass, the 3-year-old was fifth in his debut race at Kentucky Downs followed by a pair of wins at Keeneland and Churchill Downs, respectively. Earlier on as a 2-year-old he had shown a lot of talent, but he came up with some baby issues and we backed off on him, Norm Casse said. Ever since weve got him back in full training, hes really progress well, every week, really. It seems like the skys the limit and today was a big step. Sky Flight returned $11.40, $7.60 and $4.80. Cement Clement paid $24.40 and $13.80, and Smooth Daddy paid $3.40 to show. Cheap Yeezy Free Shipping .

A little more than one year after missing a last-second tip-in that would have given the Wolverines a share of the Big Ten regular-season title, the 6-foot-8 forward scored on a layup with 7.MILWAUKEE -- Up-tempo Oregon ran into a big red speed bump. Joseph Young scored 29 points but missed a potential game-tying 3 from the wing with 13 seconds left, and the Ducks watched their 12-point halftime lead crumble in an 85-77 loss Saturday night to gritty Wisconsin. Ben Brust hit a 3-pointer with 1:07 left for the second-seeded Badgers on a possession saved twice by offensive rebounds. It gave Wisconsin (28-7) the lead for good in a clash of styles played before a boisterous pro-Badgers crowd at the anything-but-neutral Bradley Center. "The momentum switched there pretty quick. It kind of boiled down to us not getting stops that we needed to, and then with the one-point lead late, the ability to get a big rebound," Oregon coach Dana Altman said. Traevon Jackson followed Brusts 3 with three free throws, but missed one with 21 seconds left to give the seventh-seeded Ducks (24-10) one more chance to tie trailing by three. Oregon gave it to Young, who had made big shots all night. Couldnt make one more, and the Badgers sealed it at the foul line. "That shot he took, no one questioned it," Oregons Richard Amardi said about Young. "It looked good. Unfortunately it just didnt go it in when we wanted it." The red-clad fans erupted into a deafening roar. Their beloved Badgers are back in the NCAA regional semifinals for the first time since 2012. They will play Baylor or Creighton in Anaheim, Calif., on Thursday. "We knew they were going to come out and be emotional," Altman said. "We just didnt handle it very well. Gave up easy baskets and didnt get the stops we needed at all." Frank Kaminsky led the way for Wisconsin with 19 points, Jackson finished with 16 and Brust had 12. Left off-kilter by the Ducks transition game early, the Badgers hustled back in the second half to answer the Oregon charge. After 19 points on the break in the first half, Oregon had nothing in transition after halftime. "Do you know how many fast-break points they got in the second half? Zero," coach Bo Ryan said.dddddddddddd "Oregon, one of the quickest teams in the country, so youve got to give the players a heckuva lot of credit." That pace played more their liking. Buckets in the lane by Kaminsky, a jump-shooting 7-footer, and coach Bo Ryans gritty guards set the tone inside, and later helped open up the perimeter. As had often happened during the night, Young had an answer. His 3 from the wing with 2:50 left to give Oregon a 75-74 lead. The Badgers grabbed offensive rebounds on their next possession. Off a timeout, Ryan re-inserted Brust, who was saddled with four fouls. The senior delivered in a huge spot with a 3 following an offensive rebound by Sam Dekker. Young couldnt deliver one last time. "Do whatever it takes to not make it your final game," Brust said. Jason Calliste had 20 points for Oregon, which set the tone early with in-your-face defence and an aggressive offence. Wisconsin found its groove by attacking the basket, a plan that has worked all year long when the team has been having problems. Dekker added 12 points and eight rebounds in another typically balanced effort. In the first half, it was Oregon dictating tempo in setting a breakneck pace. The Ducks quieted the sea of fans in a hurry, attacking on offence at nearly every opportunity and flustering Wisconsin. The frustration peaked when the Badgers bench was whistled for a technical foul near the end of the first half after arguing a call. Oregon pounced in the first 20 minutes. Sometimes it was Calliste driving to the bucket to draw fouls. Other times it was Young hitting mid-range jumpers. Then Wisconsin found its way in the second half. "To be able to handle that smack in the face in the first half and come back and deliver one of our own says a lot about this group," Ryan said. Despite the disappointing ending, Oregon had regrouped quite well since a midseason stretch of eight losses in 10 games. ' ' '
