JOCKEY QUOTESFLAVIEN PRAT, VASILIKA, WINNER: “When Drysdale’s filly (La Sardane) made that early move, it put pressure on Smith’s filly (Ms Bad Behavior) and it helped me. I didn’t want to be in a hurry, but she really picked it up and she finished well. I think a mile and one eighth might be her best (distance).MIKE SMITH, MS BAD BEHAVIOR, SECOND: “When Joel made that move, I kinda took a little hold and she dropped the bridle a bit, but it did take a little ‘sting’ out of her…But she ran great.” TRAINER QUOTES JERRY HOLLENDORFER, VASILIKA, WINNER: “You know, you never expect this kind of thing to happen, but occasionally but it does.“I hope she fits in our program, we did some extra work on her but you know she’s blossomed into a very nice mare now.“Flavian did his usual great job and got her out just in time. She ran them down and we can’t ask for more.”NOTES: All Schlaich Stables LLC, Hollendorfer, LLC, Gatto Racing, LLC and George TodaroCo-owner George Todaro, right, celebrates with jockey Flavien Prat, left, after Vasilika’s victory in the Grade III, $100,000 Megahertz Stakes, Monday, January 21, 2019 at Santa Anita Park, Arcadia CA. © BENOIT PHOTO
The match held on October 5, 2019 was marked by a controversial action by Dimitrios Siovas. The cucumber player knocked down the granota Roger out of the area after 44 minutes of play, but the referee indicated penalty without interference from VAR. The Leganés ended up losing that encounter by 1-2 and the president of Madrid, Victoria Pavón, asked for the repetition of the meeting from that minute. The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has rejected the appeal presented by the Leganés for the repetition of the game that faced Levante, on day 8 of this season, for “lack of legal basis” after the club cucumber report having suffered a penalty against “outside the area”. The RFEF rejected the complaint of Leganés -At the beginning of 2020- by “lack of legal basis” and for the “danger” that would have meant setting a precedent with the repetition of the game, as confirmed to Europa Press the general director of the entity, Martin Ortega.The case was in the hands of RFEF Competition Committee, who declared himself incompetent to resolve the complaint on October 9 and went to the General Secretariat of the agency. There, after another resource of Leganés, the protest returned to Competition, which finally decided to rule against the blue and white interests.
