MASOCHISTIC AT FAVORITE TRACK FOR GRADE I SPRINTMasochistic couldn’t hold off Wild Dude as the 2-5 favorite in the Grade I Bing Crosby Stakes at Del Mar July 26, but the lightening quick gelding could make amends in Saturday’s Santa Anita Sprint Championship, a Grade I, Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Challenge race at six furlongs.“I probably ran him back a little too quick after the big race (a 3 ½-length victory in the Grade I Triple Bend at Santa Anita on June 27), and he really didn’t handle Del Mar very well, so he’s back at a track he really likes,” trainer Ron Ellis said of the California-bred son of Sought After owned by Los Pollos Hermanos Racing or Jay Em Ess Stable.“He worked phenomenally Saturday (six furlongs in a bullet 1:11.20 under Tyler Baze, who rides him in the Sprint). It was really amazing.”Masochistic, a winner of six of nine starts with two seconds overall, is three-for-four at Santa Anita, with career earnings of $583,850.Wild Dude, second last out in the Grade II Pat O’Brien at Del Mar Aug. 22, will be back to take on Masochistic in the Sprint, reunited with Rafael Bejarano, replacing the injured Flavien Prat, who had ridden Wild Dude in his last three starts.Wild Dude worked six furlongs today in 1:18 from the gate for Jerry Hollendorfer.Indexical, third in the Pat O’Brien, also is a likely starter for Ben Cecil, who trains the chestnut ridgling by Latent Heat for J. Paul Reddam. Mario Gutierrez rides.

U of A!” (loser).(Thanks to Alexis Garske of Santa Anita’s Publicity Department for compiling this item. Garske also attended U of A’s RTIP program). AMERICAN PHAROAH WORKS FOR BC CLASSICSANTA ANITA SALUTES EDDIE D. ON SATURDAYBAFFERT ALSO A WINNER IN COLLEGE FOOTBALLMASOCHISTIC SHARP FOR SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIP AMERICAN PHAROAH IN ‘VERY NICE’ DRILL FOR CLASSICAmerican Pharoah, a horse trainer Bob Baffert has called “a gift from God,” worked onSanta Anita’s fast main track early Sunday morning in preparation for the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Keeneland Oct. 31, the final start for the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978, a span of 37 years.Baffert said American Pharoah went four furlongs in 47 4/5, while on Santa Anita’s official work tab, the 3-year-old son of Pioneerof the Nile was given a five-furlong time of a minute flat.With jockey Martin Garcia aboard and the sun out in all its Southern California glory, American Pharoah took to the track at 6:40 a.m. accompanied by a pony ridden by Baffert assistant Jim Barnes.“He went nice; he went very nice,” Baffert said of American Pharoah. “He was on the bit and he was into his work. He was moving well. That’s the main thing.”Video Link to American Pharoah’s Work – https://youtu.be/NY8qewl5UXE DELAHOUSSAYE: A MAN FOR ALL SEASONSEddie Delahoussaye, one of the greatest riders of his era and widely respected as a person by all who know him, will be honored at Santa Anita Saturday with the fourth running of the Eddie D. Stakes, a Grade III test for three-year-olds and up at about 6 ½ furlongs on the track’s unique downhill turf course.Retired since 2002, Delahoussaye celebrated his 64th birthday Sept. 21 and recently moved from Southern California to his native Louisiana, where he and his family currently reside. But he’ll be on hand Saturday for the race named in his honor.It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.“I don’t think you can find a better person than Delahoussaye,” said Huey Barnes, an assistant starter at Santa Anita who turns 82 on Oct. 3, and who came to California to work for Charlie Whittingham in 1954.“As far as the way he treated me and the way he treated people around here, everybody loved him. He was one of the greatest race riders I’ve ever been around, believe me when I tell you.“I thought (Eddie) Arcaro was, but that man, he’s just as good a race rider as Arcaro.“Eddie was the same every day. If he had a problem, you wouldn’t know it. He’s a good person and a good family man.”Inducted into racing’s Hall of Fame in 1993, Delahoussaye began his career in 1967 and won 6,384 races from 39,213 rides, 16.30 percent. He is one of only four jockeys to win consecutive runnings of the Kentucky Derby, having done so with Gato del Sol in 1982 and Sunny’s Galo in 1983.Delahoussaye led all North American jockeys with 384 wins in 1978 and was presented with Santa Anita’s prestigious George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award in 1981. FINISH LINES: Despite reports that Bayern‘s retirement already has been announced, “it is being evaluated right now,” Bob Baffert said Sunday morning at Santa Anita. Bayern, who won last year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic, is winless since, a string that reached five races after his third-place finish as the 6-5 favorite in Saturday’s Awesome Again Stakes. “We’ll know in a few days,” Baffert said of retirement plans . . . Jerry Hollendorfer was more than pleased with the 4 ½-length romp by unbeaten Songbird in the Chandelier Stakes. “Very good,” he said when asked how the $400,000 daughter of Medaglia d’Oro came out of the race, quickly adding, “As a matter of fact, she came back perfect.” . . . Trainer Doug O’Neill said that unbeaten Nyquist came out of his hard-earned, three-quarter length victory in Saturday’s FrontRunner Stakes “in great shape,” as did Land Over Sea, runner-up to odds-on favorite Songbird in the Chandelier . . . Ditto for Monster Mare Beholder, who came back “great” from an her third straight victory in the Zenyatta Stakes as Richard Mandella prepares the 5-year-old daughter of Henny Hughes owned by B. Wayne Hughes for a probable start in the Breeders’ Cup Classic . . . Grade I winner Warren’s Veneda, who finished seventh of eight in the Zenyatta after being crowded at the start, “ran down real bad on her front legs,” trainer Craig Lewis reported Sunday morning . . . Committed front-runner Distinctiv Passion, winner of the Grade III Los Angeles Stakes last May 25, worked four furlongs Sunday in a bullet 45.60 for Jeff Bonde, who has the Florida-bred son of With Distinction nominated to Saturday’s Santa Anita Sprint Championship . . . Santa Anita Derby winner Dortmund worked five furlongs in 1:01.20, while Om, prepping for the Grade II, $200,000 Twilight Derby at 1 1/8 miles on turf Oct. 24, worked five furlongs in 1:02.80 for Dan Hendricks . . .

Jerome Thomas could have a future at West Brom, according to Albion coach Kevin Keen.Thomas impressed during a recent loan spell at Leeds, whose manager Neil Warnock is keen to take him to Elland Road on a permanent basis.But Keen believes the Wembley-born winger may have a pivotal role to play during the second half of the season.“Jerome went to Leeds and got himself fit,” said Keen.“He could have a massive part to play here because of the injury situation. He could become a mainstay of the team.”Thomas came on as a substitute during the Baggies’ 1-1 draw at QPR in the FA Cup.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

Given the inanity that is our current patent system, it’s not surprising that innocent patent holders can look like trolls. Such might well be the case with SightSound Technologies, a subsidiary of General Electric, which has spent years in patent lawsuits with Apple, CDNow, Bertelsmann, Napster and others. As SightSound’s CEO Scott Sander argues in a letter to The Wall Street Journal editor, “true innovators [can be] so burdened by the cost of the very patents meant to protect them that they themselves must become an ‘assertion’ entity.” Or, in other words, a patent troll.But when is a patent troll not a patent troll? And is it ever right to become a patent troll as an allegedly defensive maneuver?Is Being First Enough?According to Sander, SightSound owns a portfolio of 50 patents related to media downloads, and claims to have been the first to sell both music (1995) and movie (1999) downloads. Of course, a quick Google search reveals that others were offering subscriber-only music downloads before 1995, e.g., Compuserve, and the Internet Underground Music Archive was offering free downloads in 1993. Movies? They were available for free before 1999 and some organizations like the American Film Institute offered movies on their website.But let’s not let historical accuracy get in the way of a good argument.The reality is that under U.S. patent law, SightSound didn’t need to be the first to file for a patent, nor did it need to be the first to make its patent-pending product available to the public. While the U.S. has recently joined the rest of the planet in adopting a “first to file” rule for patents, formerly the only requirement was that you be able to demonstrate that you were the first to invent. Courts have sided with SightSound against both CDNow, N2K, Roxio, Bertelsmann and Napster, but Sanders asserts “We now find ourselves defending our patent rights against Apple, which copied our business, our technology, and our innovative pricing model, all of which were presented by us directly to the future infringer in 1999.”Compelling, yes? Well, maybe. If you look at SightSound’s website, you won’t find the obligatory customer case studies. In fact, the website is heavy on assertions that it was first to do this or that, with descriptions of its core technology, and little mention of actual products. On its news page, the company links to a series of court victories. Trolling, much?Yet this is where defining a “troll” becomes difficult.Just What Is A Troll, Anyway?Most characterize patent trolls as non-practicing entities (NPEs), that is, companies that don’t actually build anything beyond lawsuits and cease-and-desist letters. In Sander’s mind, the definition needs to be enlarged:SightSound raised capital precisely because its patents protected its first-mover position. We used that capital to hire talented engineers attracted to the prospect of launching not just a company, but an entire industry. We were subsequently forced to defend our patents endlessly in court against larger, well-funded, heavily lawyered infringers. An infringer with a $100 billion war chest can make a mockery of the current patent system as much as trolls do.To Sander, a patent troll might also include larger companies who can afford to steamroller smaller rivals, no matter the validity of their patents. The reality of our system is that few can afford to litigate their patent portfolios, and hence larger companies with deeper pockets invariably win any long-term patent suit (and given the pace of U.S. courts, they’re always long-term).A Clear Test Of TrolldomSander proposes that we eliminate the ambiguity with a bright-line test: “Is the patent owner the first to invent, the first to file and the first to make the product or provide the service? If so, it cannot be a troll.”What do you think? I personally like the test, but it’s hard to square it with SightSound’s history of litigation. Because that also makes a company a patent troll in my mind: if they’re more interested in litigating than building, to me they’re a troll.Sander says it’s a troll purely out of necessity, but does that hold up with you?

About 3 o’clock, I finish and turn my phone on.”There is a call from Ole and another from Ed Woodward.
