Runhappy, the champion sprinter of 2015, has been retired from racing and will debut at stud in 2017 at Claiborne Farm in Paris, Ky., for an advertised fee of $25,000.A 4-year-old son of Super Saver, Runhappy finished his career with 7 wins in 10 starts for earnings of $1,496,250 racing for owner Jim McIngvale.Runhappys 2015 campaign was highlighted by a win in the Breeders Cup Sprint at Keeneland, in which he lowered the track record at six furlongs to 1:08.58. That season also included wins in the Grade 1 Kings Bishop Stakes and Malibu Stakes, as well as the Grade 3 Phoenix Stakes. In addition to being named champion sprinter, he was also an Eclipse Award finalist for champion 3-year-old male and Horse of the Year.Runhappy was under consideration for the 2017 Pegasus World Cup after McIngvale purchased a slot in the $12 million race, but his final start came in the Breeders Cup Dirt Mile at Santa Anita, where he finished out of the money.The decision to retire Runhappy was both difficult and easy, McIngvale said. On one hand, we wish he could run forever. This is by far the most incredible horse weve ever owned and hes brought so much joy to our family and his fans. But on the other hand, weve always pledged to do whats best for the health and happiness of Runhappy. For that reason, we put our strong emotional attachments aside and decided to retire him from racing.Now were filled with gratitude and enthusiasm watching Runhappy move into the same stall occupied by Secretariat, Unbridled, Easy Goer, and Bold Ruler to begin his stud career at the world-renowned Claiborne Farm.Bred in Kentucky by Wayne, Gray, and Bryan Lyster, Runhappy is the first foal out of the winning Broken Vow mare Bella Jolie, who is the dam of two winners from three runners.Runhappys extended family includes Mexican Group 1 winner Antares, Grade 2 winner Mindy Gayle, and Grade 3 winner Puntrooskie.We are thrilled and honored to welcome Runhappy to Claiborne, said Claiborne Farm representative Bernie Sams. He came out of his last race healthy and sound, but everyone felt the timing was right. He is one of the most impressive racehorses I have ever seen and when you start to dig into his pedigree, its no surprise why he was so successful. We obviously have a great deal of confidence that hell pass his tremendous speed onto his progeny. Curt Schilling Jersey .

Toronto has dropped games to Indiana and Miami since a five-game winning streak and closed out a three-game road trip at 1-2. Delhi --Francis Cheka knows how to play a villain. The challenger to Vijender Singhs Asia Pacific super middleweight title defence on Saturday, Cheka came in late to Tuesday press conference.He swaggered in wearing a brand new grey suit bought on Vijenders dime, after his own suitcase had been misplaced on the way over from Tanzania. Speaking through a translator, he sneered at Vijenders lack of experience and dismissed his Olympic bronze.The lion of Africa,saw fear he said in Vijenders eyes. In case those watching were feeling left out, Cheka cheekily promised to invite them to the party he would throw after beating Vijender.When the two boxers posed in a faceoff, the man with scars crisscrossing his eye line and a caved-in nose - evidence of half a life spent fighting - stuck his left palm with fingers stretched out in Vijenders face.Pick a number. Thats how many rounds Im going to knock you out in, he growled. He then proceeded to shove him, kicking off a minor scuffle. It might have been scripted, but it made for good video. With 5000 tickets to sell for Saturdays main event, all the animosity, feigned or otherwise, needed to be generated.It was assumed that Cheka was continuing in the same vein later in the day when he asked for a bottle of packaged water , drank it and then crushed the plastic container. Surely this was a metaphor for what he wanted to do to the Indian?As it turns out, Cheka was simply explaining his side job. While boxing is Chekas claim to fame, he also runs a plastic recycling business back home in Morogoro.Before he earned paychecks throwing punches, Cheka lived a hardscrabble existence picking up and selling plastic bottles.My father and mother separated when I was very young. I lived with my father but there wasnt a lot of money. So I would pick up plastic bottles on the road and then sell them to the plastic recyclers, he says through translator and manager Jay Msangi.Cheka got his break in life when as a seventeen-year-old, he decided to try boxing. I was just trying to do something to keep my mind occupied, he says. Despite not having a lot of technique, Cheka developed a reputation as someone who could get into slug-fests in the ring.He has fought 43 times, including once in Russia against Fedor Chudinov - who held the WBA super middleweight title.dddddddddddd Cheka has had his share of success too with 17 of his 32 wins coming by way of knockout. He currently holds the WBF super middleweight belt and according to his manager, is a household name in Tanzania.Francis Cheka is Tanzanian boxing. After he won the WBF title, he was invited to parliament and was asked to speak to the members there, Msangi says.Despite the adulation in his home, Cheka knows how fickle the sport can be. Which is why with his winnings over the years, he set up a plastic recycling unit in Morogoro.When I was a kid I would sell the plastic bottles to dealers. Even after I started boxing I would do this because there wasnt any money when I started out. But when I started making money, I started investing it in machinery because I understand this business, he says. His purse from the fight with Vijender will go into the business as well.Msangi says Cheka has done well for himself. He was gifted land and a house by the government for winning the WBF title, but Francis has built three homes for himself from the recycling business, he says.Indeed, while Cheka says he will support his four young children - Astoria, 10, Addis 7, Boniface,5, and Azenka 2 - if they want to box, he says they will first have to join him on the shop floor.Through the plastic business, Cheka had an Indian connection even though he had never been to India before this week. I know a lot of Indian businessmen in Tanzania. They buy the recycled plastic from me and then export it to India, he says. The plastic from this bottle probably came from my plant, he jokes while picking up one of the water bottles.Cheka says his clients knew he was a boxer but were surprised to know he would be coming to India. When I told them that I was going to go to India and fight the pride of their country they got a huge surprise.And if Vijender does find himself in trouble on Saturday, Cheka explains those Indian businessmen will have to share the blame. They have beaten me up a lot of times doing business. So I guess its time for me to return the favour to their hero.
