first_img20 Feb 2017 Brown’s 63 ties for stroke play honours England’s Dan Brown fired a stunning nine-under 63 to tie for the stroke play honours at the South African Amateur Championship in Port Elizabeth. But he was pipped into second place for the matchplay draw after losing on the fourth hole of a sudden death play-off to South Africa’s Chris Woollam, who won the Proudfoot Trophy. The two players had tied on 15-under after the 36 holes of qualifying. Brown, the English amateur champion from Masham in Yorkshire, opened with six-under 66 and was tied fifth after the first round. Then he came out for the second round with all guns blazing. He had two eagles and two birdies in his first five holes and reached the turn in six-under 29. He had a solitary bogey on the short 14th  as he came home in three-under. But Brown had to wait to find out that his first round matchplay opponent was fellow England international Sean Towndrow – one of three companions on an England Golf tour of South Africa, alongside Josh Hilleard and James Walker. Towndrow (Southport & Ainsdale, Lancashire) came through an 18-man play-off for the last three places in the match play draw with a birdie on the first hole. Other English players who safely reached the match play – without the drama of a play-off – are Mitchell Waite (Filton, Gloucestershire), James Walker (The Oaks, Yorkshire), Joe Long (Lansdown, Gloucestershire) and Robin Williams (Peterborough Milton, Northamptonshire).  Brown has already taken third place in the South African stroke play.  Click here for matchplay scoreslast_img

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 28, 2016)–With Eclipse Award Champions Stellar Wind and Beholder targeted for next Friday’s $2 million Breeders’ Cup Distaff, Argentine-bred Vale Dori found conditions to order today at Santa Anita as she rocketed to a 10 ¼ length win in the day’s $65,000 allowance feature. Trained by Bob Baffert and ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Vale Dori made every pole a winning one as she covered 1 1/6 miles in 1:43.26.A well beaten third behind the afore mentioned Stellar Wind and Beholder in the Grade I Zenyatta Stakes here on Oct. 1, Vale Dori now has two wins from four starts for Baffert in Southern California.“I’m seeing a big change in her,” said Baffert. “She’s much calmer now. When she first got here (this past spring), she was a handful. She’s six months behind (due to the hemispheric difference between Argentina and North America), but she’s catching up. We’ll run her next in the Bayakoa (Grade II, 1 1/16 miles on Dec. 3) at Del Mar.”With no show wagering, Vale Dori was the heavy 1-5 favorite in a field of four fillies and mares, and paid $2.40 and $2.10.In what seemed like a separate race, Texas-bred Chronologic’sghost, who was rank in the early running, outran All Star Bub for second money by three quarters of a length. Ridden by Anne Sanguinetti, Chronologic’sghost was off at 13-1 and paid $5.20 to place.Fractions, which were set by the winner, were 23.73, 47.65, 1:11.89 and 1:36.62.First post time for a nine-race card on Saturday at Santa Anita is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.last_img
