DEL MAR, Calif. -- Twice before in his 22-race career, California Chrome has drawn the rail. He finished sixth both times.So it was no surprise that when California Chrome landed the inside post Tuesday during the draw for the Grade 1, $1 million Pacific Classic on Saturday at Del Mar, trainer Art Sherman sat back in his chair and looked skyward.Like I told you the other day, Id like to be outside, and Ill probably draw the rail, Sherman said. The two speeds are outside. Well see if they go.The two speeds are Dortmund and Beholder, considered California Chromes primary rivals in what is shaping up as the best race so far this year. Beholder, last years Pacific Classic winner, drew post 7 in the field of nine, with Dortmund just to her outside.In California Chromes favor is that he clearly is a better horse now than when he ran in the Golden State Juvenile at age 2 or in the Pennsylvania Derby at age 3 in his first start since the Triple Crown. Those are the two prior times he drew the rail. Now age 5, California Chrome comes into this race riding a four-race win streak, including a half-length victory over Dortmund in last months San Diego Handicap here, and, of course, the Dubai World Cup in March.You can place him just about anywhere you want, Sherman said. Hes coming in as good as Ive seen him.It will be up to jockey Victor Espinoza to work out a trip for California Chrome. Gary Stevens rides Beholder, with Rafael Bejarano on Dortmund.Its going to be a jockeys race, said Sherman, a former jockey.The draw was held Tuesday night at The Brigantine, a popular local restaurant that overlooks the racetrack. The field swelled to nine Tuesday when Bob Baffert, who trains Dortmund, decided to also run Hoppertunity, who finished third to California Chrome in Dubai.The field, from the rail out for the 1-1/4-mile race, is California Chrome (Espinoza the rider), Hoppertunity (Flavien Prat), War Story (Ricardo Mejias), Hard Aces (Santiago Gonzalez), Win the Space (Joe Talamo), Imperative (Norberto Arroyo Jr.), Beholder (Stevens), Dortmund (Bejarano), and Dalmore (Kent Desormeaux).Russell Hudak, who makes the morning line at Del Mar, made California Chrome the 8-5 favorite, with Dortmund next at 5-2 and Beholder the third choice at 3-1. Hoppertunity, at 8-1, is the only other horse lower than 15-1 on the morning line.The Pacific Classic is run under weight-for-age conditions, so all older males carry 124 pounds. Beholder, the lone female, gets a five-pound break, so she carries 119. Dalmore, the lone 3-year-old, gets a six-pound break, so he carries 118.The Pacific Classic is scheduled to be the ninth race on an 11-race card that will begin at 2 p.m. Pacific time. The card will be streamed live on Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys .

Its 1987 and a Brazilian playmaker, known as Mirandinha, is being paraded around St James Park to the passionate Newcastle fans. Here are some things to watch in the Atlantic Coast Conference for Week 11:GAME OF THE WEEK: Georgia Tech at No. 18 Virginia Tech. The Hokies (7-2, 5-1) can take another step toward their first ACC championship game berth since 2011 by beating a Yellow Jackets team that didnt do them any favoris last week in a loss to the other Coastal Division contender, No. 21 North Carolina. Virginia Tech -- which was just good enough to hold off Duke last week -- plays its final two league games in the friendly confines of Lane Stadium and knows it must be better against a Georgia Tech team that is one victory shy of bowl eligibility. It is hard to have a sense of relief when you are trying to get ready for Georgia Tech, Hokies coach Justin Fuentes said.BEST MATCHUP: Wake Forest defense vs. Lamar Jackson and the Louisville offense. The Demon Deacons defense has keyed their transformation into a bowl team, ranking second to Clemson in points allowed (18.4). But this represents their toughest test so far -- a matchup against Jackson, the Heisman Trophy front-runner who leads the league in six offensive stat categories, and a Cardinals offense that is putting up more than 50 points and nearly 600 total yards per game. It wont get any easier for Wake Forest -- which plays host to No. 3 Clemson next week. There is not a big margin of error when you play a team of this quality, Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said.INSIDE THE NUMBERS: Only five of 14 ACC teams are over .500 in league play so far.dddddddddddd The top two teams in each division have been mostly immune to upsets -- the only one of them to lose to a team further back in the standings is Virginia Tech, which lost to Syracuse. The two bottom teams in each division havent beaten anybody ahead of them except for N.C. State, which defeated Wake Forest in a game that hardly seemed like an upset at the time.UPSET WATCH: Maybe Virginia will find a way to cover the 10-point spread against a Miami team that just snapped a four-game losing streak. The Cavaliers, who were locked down by Wake Forests defense last week, will need more from QB Kurt Benkert, who threw for just 190 yards and was intercepted twice with one returned for the game-winning touchdown with less than 7 minutes to play. Complicating things further, the Hurricanes rank fifth in the league against the pass.IMPACT PLAYER: Look for N.C. State RB Matt Dayes to put up some big numbers against a leaky Syracuse defense. Dayes trails only Jackson and Florida States Dalvin Cook among ACC rushers, and is 169 yards shy of the 1,000-yard mark for the season. Defense has been a big problem for the Orange, who are 12th or worse in the league in all four major defensive stat categories.---Compiled by AP Sports Writer Joedy McCreary in Raleigh, North Carolina.---OnlineMore AP college football: cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
