BALTIMORE -- Rosie Napravniks motivation for winning the Preakness has little to do with making history. Hydro Flask Schweiz . With a victory aboard Mylute on Saturday, Napravnik would become the first female jockey to capture the middle jewel of the Triple Crown. More importantly to her, though, it would serve as a triumphant return to Pimlico Race Course, where she launched her outstanding career. "You know what? It would be a great accomplishment, but thats not the reason I want to win it, because no other woman has won it before," Napravnik said in a telephone interview. "I just want to win it for my own sense of accomplishment and for all the people who have been rooting for me since the very beginning. It would be unbelievable to win the race, and I really believe we have a good shot." Napravnik, 25, finished fifth in the Kentucky Derby on Mylute, the best performance ever by a female rider in the sports most esteemed event. "The Derby was a great race," she said. "I mean, he just did everything right. He was a little farther back than I wanted to be, but thats just sort of his running style. He ran an excellent race, made a huge move around the turn down the lane, basically followed (first-place finisher) Orb the whole way. It was the kind of race that he will really move forward from." If theres such a thing as home-track advantage, Napravnik will have it in the Preakness. Her first career win came at Pimlico in 2005, aboard her first-ever mount, Ringofdiamonds, just days after finishing her junior year of high school. One year later, Napravnik swept the rider standings at all four meets at Pimlico. And now shes running in the Preakness, where she will become the third female rider to have a mount, joining Patti Cooksey (sixth aboard Tajawa in 1985) and Andrea Seefeldt (seventh with Looming in 1994). "Its always an advantage if you know a track well," Napravnik said. "I won a lot of races at Pimlico and I like the track. I know the track like the back of my hand, and I appreciate that fact." She can only hope that will be of use against Orb on Saturday. "Whether we can win the race or not, its still to be seen. Its going to be a tough race and Orb is definitely going to be tough to beat," she said. "Either way, Id have to say it will be one of my proudest moments." Thats saying something, because Napravnik has accomplished much since trainer Dickie Smalls sent her out on her first mount on that memorable June afternoon in 2005. Last year, Napravnik won 193 races. Along the way, she became only the second female rider in history to win a Breeders Cup race and the first woman in the 138-year history of the Kentucky Oaks to reach the winners circle. Her career has provided her many rewards and more a few broken bones. She has fractured her collarbone, wrist and leg, but none of that has stopped her from getting back in the saddle. "Ive always been impressed with not only her riding skills, but her competitiveness," said Org trainer Shug McGaughey, who has employed Napravnik in the past. "She wants to be a great jock, shes very, very confident of herself, and when youve got her, youve got a great addition." Its been eight years since her first ride at Pimlico, and Napravnik cant wait for the next one. "If I think about all the places Ive been and the things Ive done, wow, Ive accomplished a lot," she said. "But at the same time, it feels like it was just yesterday when I was galloping there when I was just 16. Time has flown by, but time flies when youre having fun, and I love what I do."

Rousey will put her perfect 8-0 record and hardware on the line against another undefeated fighter, 7-0 Sara McMann in the main event of UFC 170, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas Nevada on February 22nd. http://www.swellflascheschweiz.ch/ .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. Bjorn Rebney has revealed his motivations behind helping to launch the Mixed Martial Arts Athletes Association.The former Bellator MMA CEO announced the formation of the group on a conference call last week in a bid to promote UFC fighters rights and earn them a bigger share of revenue from the promotions new owners, WME-IMG.WME-IMG and UFC today -- that conglomerate -- theyre bullies, Rebney said in an appearance on MMA Hour. And it may not be with their hands, but its with their money and its with their power and its with their influence.UFC fighters Tim Kennedy, Cain Velasquez, TJ Dillashaw and Donald Cerrone, as well as former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, all joined in on the conference call with Rebney, who said he is acting as an adviser and will not make decisions on behalf of the group.The group said on the call they were seeking, among other things, a pension, retirement plan and full-scale health care for current and retired fighters.Theres nothing in place, and this is the most violent sport on the face off the Earth, Rebney continued. Hydro Flask Flasche Schweiz. The repercussions for a mixed martial artist far surpass those from hockey or football or, for Gods sake, even boxing. Even boxing. And boxing has got a real ugly progressive step for its athletes. And youve got nothing in place? No.WME-IMG bought the UFC for $4 billion earlier this year from Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta, as well as Dana White, who kept his role as president.That didnt come from Dana or Lorenzo, Rebney said. That came on the backs of fighters, who packed the arenas, drove the pay-per-view buy rates, drove the international and domestic television, the sponsorships, the closed circuit, etc., etc.They deserve to get paid whats fair. And to be able to fight that fight, to be able to be in the middle of that and also to be able to Superman-punch bullies in the back of the head, thats a very attractive proposition for me just given my personality.
