Nico Rosberg is refusing to take his lead from Fridays second practice session for granted, saying Mercedes will has work to do to claim pole position for the Singapore Grand Prix. Ryan Finley Youth Jersey .Rosberg topped the evening session under the lights in Singapore, which was the session which gave the first hint of trouble for Mercedes ahead of its bizarre loss of performance at Yas Marina last year. Though he was 0.3s quicker than Kimi Raikkonen this time around, Rosberg thinks it would be wrong to assume Mercedes has solved all its problems just because of one good practice session.Its been okay, he said. We know that this is the best track for Red Bull and Ferrari so we have to be careful and do the best we can. We shouldnt get ahead of ourselves because last year on Friday we looked OK and on Saturday we were nowhere. Lets wait and see.When he was asked if there is any way of understanding how quick Ferrari or Red Bull will be on Saturday, Rosberg stressed the importance of Mercedes focusing on its own pace first of all.Very difficult. Of course we think more or less we understand the situation, but we thought that as well last year and in the end we have to concentrate on ourselves and maximise what weve got.Rosbergs day was not without drama, as the German went straight on and into the wall at the tight and narrow Turn 18 late in the opening session, losing his front wing in the process. He said it was just a simple error rather than a brake-by-wire issue with his Mercedes.Just braked too deep and locked up and thats it. In general the day has been OK, its been a decent start to the weekend. Maybe weve learnt a few lessons from last year but early days. Even last year on Friday we were looking OK and then come Saturday we were nowhere so lets wait and see.We definitely need to keep on working and getting the most out of it for tomorrow and hope thats going to be enough to give Red Bull and Ferrari a run for their money because here for sure is their best track.

Irving scored 23 points, Tristan Thompson had 20 points and 10 rebounds and the Cavaliers beat the Denver Nuggets 117-109 on Friday night. . -- Vincent Lecavalier got everything but the desired result in his return to Tampa Bay. The Breeders Cup always has been intended to take the breath away.In the beginning, it was the money, more purse money than American racing ever had seen before. As it evolved, it was the competition, international in scope, dizzy with intensity. At one point, it became the action and how astounding it was to see just how much people wanted to bet, upward of $150 million over a two-day show.Now, in a social environment so completely attuned to the cult of personality, the Breeders Cup is all about the stars. Its not enough just to brag about going to the Breeders Cup. There have been 32 of them. The novelty has worn off. Now, the question is, Who did you see? And if the answer is, I saw Zenyatta, or Wise Dan, or Goldikova, or American Pharoah, then youve got their attention.This year, the main attraction is California Chrome, a horse of such universal appeal that even the opposition saves room to root.You cant help it, said trainer Jimmy Jerkens, who will try to beat California Chrome with the longshots Effinex and Shaman Ghost in the $6 million Breeders Cup Classic. Hes just such a neat horse, and a great story.No question, when California Chrome shows up, he tends to suck all the air out of the room. The 1-1/4 miles on dirt is right up his alley, and his six races this year -- from the winter in Dubai to his final rehearsal at Santa Anita -- have unfolded as if hewing to a script already chiseled in stone.However, by the time California Chrome takes the track late Saturday afternoon against Travers winner Arrogate, Met Mile winner Frosted, Jockey Club Gold Cup winner Hoppertunity, and Santa Anita Handicap winner Melatonin, the story of the 2016 Breeders Cup already may have been written by the half-dozen world-class fillies and mares who have made this party something to remember.Never before has the Santa Anita Park backstretch been home to such depth of female talent. A stroll through the stables is like walking a wing of the Louvre, with masterpiece after masterpiece staring down from the walls.Fridays $2 million Distaff has been predicted to be the best race ever run in the U.S. on a weekday that wasnt a holiday. No one really did the research, but it sounds about right for an event that attracted champions Songbird, Beholder, and Stellar Wind as well as the multiple Grade 1 winners Curalina, Im a Chatterbox, and Forever Unbridled.Songbird and Beholder each have one foot in the Hall of Fame, while Stellar Wind spent the last three months defying the conventional thinking that there could be yet another filly of similar caliber on the West Coast. Yes, the Distaff should be run on a Saturday on network TV alongside the Classic -- especially this Distaff -- but thats an argument well save for another day. Anyway, Zenyatta won the same event on a Friday, so at least this years winner will be in good company.If the true test of a great filly or mare is her ability to defeat males at the highest levels, then the three on the marquee for Saturday have passed with flying colors.Found is the durable daughter of Galileo who runs for Coolmore and trainer Aidan OBrien. Boomer Esiason Jersey. She upset Golden Horn in the Breeders Cup Turf at Keeneland last year, the same Golden Horn who was acclaimed European Horse of the Year, and she is back to defend her title on Saturday, with a purse of $4 million on the line.Found is also making her 10th start of the season and her third in the last five weeks, after winning the Arc de Triomphe on the first Sunday in October and finishing second to likely European Horse of the Year Almanzor in the Champion Stakes on Oct. 15. By finishing first, second, or third in the Turf, Found will pass Zenyattas $7.3 million as the all-time leading earner among females with at least one start in North America. It is assumed, however, that they didnt send her to California to finish second or third.If Found gets points for her international adventurism, save some credit for Miss Temple City and the Graham Motion crew. They have on their hands a long, full-figured filly who has stood the gaff of trips abroad in each of the last two years for dates at Royal Ascot.She was a competitive fourth in both tries -- no shame in that -- while back home in the States, Miss Temple City manhandled males in both the Makers 46 Mile and the Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland. Among her victims in the Shadwell were Ironicus, Tourist, What a View, and stablemate Ring Weekend, all of them trying her again on Saturday in the $2 million Breeders Cup Mile.Fillies and mares do not win the Mile all the time, it just seems like it. Royal Heroine was first out of the box in 1984, followed by Miesque (1987-88), Ridgewood Pearl (1995), Six Perfections (2003), and the era of Goldikova (2008-10).Then came Tepin, whose performance in the 2015 Mile at Keeneland capped a championship season that began in relative obscurity, with an allowance-race win at Gulfstream Park coming after a seven-month layoff.That was then. Now Tepin reigns as a bona fide American hero, the winner of the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot last June and the Woodbine Mile in her return to competition in September. Earlier this week, trainer Mark Casse stood admiring the mare in the corner stall of her temporary Santa Anita barn as she dropped in her straw, scratched an itch, and then jumped up to playfully charge her webbing.Guess she shipped okay, he deadpanned. This was Tepin. All she ever does is ship okay.You know, this is really a deep Breeders Cup across the board, but especially with the mares, Casse said. And a lot of that is because people have kept these good ones in training. Beholder is 6, Tepin is 5. They could have been bred by now.Casse broke his personal Breeders Cup drought by winning two of the 13 races last year with Tepin and Catch a Glimpse, who runs on Saturday in the Filly and Mare Turf.Weve got seven running in Breeders Cup races, and I think four of them have a legitimate shot, Casse said. Someone asked me if Id be happy if I could only win one. It didnt take me long to answer. Of course, I would. Who wouldnt?
