It is the best ever start to a season for the Turin giants who have drawn just one game against Genoa.Earlier, Inter Milan crushed Genoa 5-0 to reclaim second spot on goal difference ahead of Napoli, who had eased past Empoli 5-1 on Friday, and keep the pressure on the seven-time reigning champions.But Allegri insisted: “This isn’t good enough.“We have to defend better, we concede too many goals and risked letting in an equaliser in the 85th minute.“Even after the first goal we didn’t add a second and drifted out of the game. We can’t always assume that we’ll score two or three goals.”Juventus in all competitions this season: W13 D1 ??? #UCL pic.twitter.com/uxrsn068Hr— UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) November 3, 2018Wins by the top three were a boost before next week’s Champions League fixtures, with Inter Milan at home against Barcelona and Napoli hosting Paris Saint-Germain.Eusebio Di Francesco’s Roma, however, needed a late Alessandro Florenzi volley to snatch a 1-1 draw at Fiorentina ahead of their midweek trip to CSKA Moscow.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 Milan, Italy | AFP | Massimiliano Allegri praised Cristiano Ronaldo’s leadership skills as Juventus beat Cagliari 3-1 for their 10th win in 11 games to maintain their six-point cushion at the top of Serie A on Saturday.Paulo Dybala scored after just 44 seconds, with a Filip Bradaric own-goal accounting for Juventus’ second after 39 minutes, two minutes after Joao Pedro had pulled the Sardinians level.Ronaldo failed to add to his seven-goal league tally for new club Juventus with the Portuguese superstar hitting the woodwork before next week’s Champions League visit by former club Manchester United.But the 33-year-old’s pass across goal set up Colombian Juan Cuadrado for his first of the season three minutes from time in the Allianz Stadium.“He has always been a leader and an extraordinary player, as you saw from the assist he put on Cuadrado’s foot,” said Allegri.FULL-TIME!

By John BurtonRED BANK – The decision this week by Pope Benedict XVI to tender his resignation had those exiting St. James Roman Catholic Church on Ash Wednesday reacting with surprise and a variety of opinions on his tenure and legacy.“It did take me by surprise,” said Barbara Zarrillo of Manalapan. “If his health is failing, it’s certainly understandable,” that he would be the first pope in 600 years to step down.Zarrillo hopes the College of Cardinals “can find someone who’s qualified” to assume the role as the church’s spiritual leader. Overall, she said, “I don’t think it’ll be a great disturbance to the Vatican or the Catholic nation.”Pope Benedict, in her estimation, is “very conservative” in terms of the church’s orthodoxy and has been “trying to keep the Catholic beliefs on the straight and narrow,” she said.Zarrillo noted that he also has embraced modern technology, keeping his papacy relevant. “He was the first pope to go viral, with tweeting. It’s a sign of the times.”Most interviewed spoke of Benedict’s conservatism on church matters, saying they were in agreement with that direction and hoped Benedict’s successor would continue.That was obvious to Rumson resident Mark Conley. “If they’re here in the church, they believe what he believes and in the teachings,” Conley observed.The Catholic faith is about “rites, rituals and traditions,” he said. “He’s been a traditional pope, following the truths of the Catholic Church,” which have remained constant for 2,000 years.“I believe he’s stayed with the traditions that I’ve always been taught,” Conley said. “Whether it’s been popular or unpopular, he’s stayed with the traditions.”Muriel DeFazio, Red Bank, applauded Benedict’s conservative stances, as well as his decision to step aside, if he feels he’s unable to continue in his work. DeFazio, 89, said the church has changed considerably over the course of her life – and not necessarily for the better. “Let’s face it, the church is slowly going downhill,” she said. “It’s not what it use to be.”Andrew Obosky, also from Red Bank, doesn’t think there has been any one thing that will be remembered as Benedict’s legacy during the course of his eight-year tenure. He conceded the pope doesn’t have the charisma of his predecessor, John Paul II, but said the reinforcement of traditional Catholic teachings – Obosky didn’t want to use the word “conservative” – will hopefully continue.“What you need is an anchor, a bastion of truth,” in a pope, upholding the two-millennia tradition. “I’m thankful for that,” he said.“I think he’ll be loved and appreciated as time goes by,” said Neil Fitzpatrick, a Matawan resident who is St. James’ music director.Fitzpatrick sees Benedict as a great theologian and thinker. And, while many would have liked to see the Roman Catholic Church take more progressive steps and changes, Fitzpatrick said that really isn’t the role for the pope. “You can’t change doctrine.’’ The pope is meant to reinforce and uphold it, he said.Fitzpatrick traveled to Rome about two years ago and attended a papal Mass at the Vatican. It lasted for about three hours; and, while Benedict moved quite slowly while serving Mass, Fitzpatrick was amazed he held up as well as he did.“I think he’s shown great humility and courage by stepping down,” Fitzpatrick said.Fred Link of Middletown said the pope “certainly won’t have the legacy” of his predecessor. “Intellectually he did a lot,” through his writings and public pronouncements, which will be his legacy, Link said.“It sure took me by surprise,” Link added. “I didn’t think it was an option. I thought you were there until you died.”

Next up for the Temple City colt: the $1 million, Grade I, Santa Anita Derby on April 4. “We were very pleased,” said Carla Gaines, who trains Bolo for Golden Pegasus Racing, Inc., and Earle Mack. “It was sort of an unknown (racing on dirt for the first time), and he had missed some training and didn’t go into the race exactly as we would have liked. “But he ran really well in spite of me,” she concluded with a self-effacing chuckle.Bolo worked four furlongs on an overcast Thursday morning in 47.80. Mike Smith, who rode Ocho Ocho Ocho in the San Felipe, rides Bolo in the Santa Anita Derby, leaving Ocho Ocho Ocho open at press time. Ocho Ocho Ocho worked five furlongs Wednesday for Jim Cassidy in 1:00.80. Smith had ridden Bolo in his first three races. “He worked really good,” trainer Jim Cassidy said of Ocho Ocho Ocho, who suffered superficial leg cuts in the San Felipe, in which he lost for the first time, finishing eighth. “I was really happy with the work and I’m happy with the horse right now.“His cuts are healed; he’s better than he was last week. He was kind of quiet last week.” Trainer Cliff Sise Jr. has San Felipe runner-up Prospect Park scheduled to work six furlongs at his San Luis Rey base Saturday for the Santa Anita Derby. Joe Steiner will be up.AMERICAN PHAROAH BACK ON TRACK AFTER REBEL ROMP Kentucky Derby favorite American Pharoah was back on the track at Santa Anita for the first time Thursday morning since his scintillating 6 ¼-length win on a sealed but sloppy track in the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park Saturday. “He looks happy,” trainer Bob Baffert said. Said Baffert assistant Jim Barnes who was on hand for the Rebel performance: “It was exciting. He ran the way we expected him to. We just had to deal with the elements. That was the worst part of the trip, the heavy rains. “But it didn’t seem to bother him, he shipped well, and we learned about shipping and weather, so that’s good.”HESS CLAIM SEEKS TO STEAL SAN LUIS REY STAKESBob Hess Jr. is hoping Joes Blazing Aaron catches a flyer in Saturday’s San Luis Rey Stakes and can carry his speed a mile and a half to victory in the grassy Grade II race for older horses that offers $200,000 in purse money.Claimed for $62,500 from his last start, Joes Blazing Aaron is a committed front-runner, having won seven of 37 career starts and $393,491.“(Joe) Talamo worked him Sunday (five furlongs on the main track in 1:01) and he’ll ride him,” Hess said. “The horse is an old, classy individual, very healthy. I think he likes the turf course here.“He’s coming off a real good race (third at 1 ¼ miles on turf Feb. 27, beaten just over a length when he went the first six furlongs in 1:09.60).“Hopefully,” Hess said, “he doesn’t have to go nine and change this time.”The field for the San Luis Rey: Raise Your Gaze, Tyler Baze, 12-1; Play Hard to Get, Kent Desormeaux, 6-1; Diamond Bachelor, Martin Pedroza, 10-1; Power Foot, Flavien Prat, 4-1; Buymeabond, Iggy Puglisi, 20-1; Joesblazing Aaron, Joe Talamo, 6-1; Fly Lexis Fly, Edwin Maldonado, 20-1; Finnegans Wake, Victor Espinoza, 6-5; and Ashleyluvssugar, Gary Stevens, 9-2.TALAMO’S HEART BELONGS TO DADDY (D T) IN PASADENA Joe Talamo expects another strong effort aboard Daddy D T when he rides the Scat Daddy ridgling for Hronis Racing and John Sadler in Saturday’s $75,000 Pasadena Stakes for 3-year-olds at one mile on turf. Talamo and Daddy D T finished second by a neck in an overnight race at a mile on grass Feb. 22. “He should be tough,” Talamo said. “They didn’t have much speed last time. The turf was soft. He ran a good race. He’s run against come tough horses (American Pharoah and Bolo, to name but two). “He shows up every time. If he doesn’t win, he’s always right there.” In six starts, Daddy D T has one win, a second and two thirds.

Sidelined due to a broken leg and fractured pelvis sustained in a paddock accident at Aqueduct on Nov. 2, Luzzi has undergone reconstructive surgery and is now rehabbing for a return to the saddle at some point this year. Presented annually by Santa Anita since 1950, the Woolf Award is one of the most highly coveted honors in all of racing as it recognizes those riders whose careers and personal character have earned esteem for both the individual and the sport of Thoroughbred racing. America’s Eclipse Award-winning apprentice jockey in 1989, Luzzi, by a vote of his peers, outpolled four other finalists: James Graham, Leslie Mawing, Corey Nakatani and the recently retired Rosie Napravnik. It is expected that Luzzi, who has won 3,420 career races, will be accompanied April 12 by his wife, Tania, daughter, Larue, 14, and son, Lane, 16.FINISH LINES: Agent Tony Matos hopes Corey Nakatani can resume riding in about a month after the 44-year-old Hall of Fame nominee went down when his mount, Bilger’s Sapphire, clipped heels and fell in Sunday’s fifth race at about 6 ½ furlongs on turf. “It’s not as bad as it appeared,” Matos said. “He had no surgery. His (left) collar bone is broken but it’s not displaced and it takes three weeks to heal. He’ll have X-rays taken, and then if everything looks all right, he can start getting on horses.” . . .

The duration of the training will be six months. The selection of students was done police station wise, through a written screening test that was held on January 15 at two centres in the district. 20 students who had performed very well during the screening, were handed over competitive examination books, bags and other equipment needed for their examination, free of cost. “The entire cost of running the project is being borne from the community policing fund allocated by the state government,” a senior police officer in the district said. The senior police official said that anyone interested to teach or guide the students is welcome in the Lakhyabhed initiative.
