Dullahan Passing on Preakness, Will Await Belmont

May 12th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – The owners of third-place Kentucky Derby finisher Dullahan say the colt won’t be running in the Preakness Stakes on May 19.  Trainer Dale Romans says the Preakness would be Dullahan’s third race in just five weeks and the horse would be “best served” by sitting it out.  Dullahan will run next in the Belmont Stakes on June 9, the final leg of the Triple Crown races.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jason Heyward hit a two-run homer in the 12th inning and the Atlanta Braves beat St. Louis 9-7 on Friday night, ruining the Cardinals’ celebration honoring former manager Tony La Russa. Dan Uggla homered and Michael Bourn had three hits for the Braves. Craig Kimbrel gave up a hit but struck out two for his NL-leading 11th save in 12 chances. Carlos Beltran homered twice during a four-hit day for the Cardinals that also included a two-run triple. Matt Carpenter and Allen Craig also went deep. A sellout crowd was on hand to watch the Cardinals retire La Russa’s No. 10 in a pregame ceremony that included several of the managers’ former players.

Reiff Settling in at Lions Rookie Minicamp

Sports

May 11th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Riley Reiff and the rest of Detroit’s draft picks are settling in at rookie minicamp. Reiff was on the field Friday, although coach Jim Schwartz says it’s hard to evaluate the offensive lineman from Iowa when there’s no contact in practice. Wide receiver Ryan Broyles, a second-round pick out of Oklahoma, was on the field but wore a baseball hat and didn’t do much. He’s coming off major knee surgery. The Lions had signed six of their eight draft picks to four-year deals by Thursday, and cornerback Dwight “Bill” Bentley — a third-rounder from Louisiana-Lafayette — said he reached a deal before practice Friday. Reiff is still without an agreement but is participating in the three-day minicamp anyway.

Branstad Order Allows Lead Shot in Dove Hunting

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Gov. Terry Branstad has signed an executive order legalizing the use of lead shot in the hunting of doves, rescinding an action by the state Natural Resources Commission.  Branstad’s action today (Friday) allows dove hunters to use lead shot when the season begins in September.  The Iowa Natural Resources Commission last year approved a rule banning lead shot for dove hunting. The Legislature’s Administrative Rules Review Committee then agreed to postpone the rule to give the Legislature time to pass a law that would allow lead shot for dove hunting.  This year, the House passed a resolution, but the measure died in the Senate.  Opponents of dove hunting say the pellets contaminate the environment for other animals. Hunting groups say steel shot costs more and doesn’t work as well.
