Press Association Auld Enemy put up a promising display when making all the running to make a winning debut in the Requinto EBF Maiden at Navan. The trainer said: “He’s a grand colt. He had a good draw and was reasonably professional. He wants further and we’ll get him home and make a plan for him then.” Wachman and Lordan completed a double when Curvy followed up last month’s course and distance success in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Handicap. It was a close-run thing, as Dragon Fei collared Jeremy’s Girl close home only to be caught by the 15-8 favourite in the shadow of the post. “She’s a nice filly. She’ll run in stakes races now. She’s got a good pedigree so it’s important to get some black type,” said Wachman. David Wachman’s son of Fastnet Rock (13-2) broke away smartly under Wayne Lordan to grab the far rail and dictate affairs. Well in command, the juvenile went on to score by a length and a half from Black Beach, with the always prominent favourite Stone Mountain third.
Ted Leonsis got his hockey championship when the Capitals won the Stanley Cup in 2018. Now he’s reorganizing his basketball operations department in an effort to get the Wizards to the same point. Leonsis on Monday announced the formation of Monumental Basketball, a new collective with oversight of not only the Wizards but also the WNBA’s Mystics, the G League’s Capital City Go-Go, and the Wizards District Gaming esports operation. While the Wizards haven’t been nearly that hapless, mediocrity has been the rule since Leonsis, a former AOL executive, took control in June 2010 (he has owned the Capitals since 1999). The Wizards have missed the playoffs in five of the nine seasons since, but did finish first in the Southeast Division in 2016-17 before falling to the Celtics in the second round of the playoffs. Washington went 32-50 last season, losing star guard John Wall to an Achilles injury in late December and seeing marquee free-agent addition Dwight Howard play in only nine games due to back troubles. Wall characterized the news Monday as “a good day” for the organization and welcomed “all of the Monument Basketball leaders.”Today was a good day for #DCFamily.

Related News Former Cleveland Browns executive vice president Sashi Brown has been named chief planning and operations officer for Monumental Basketball, while former Georgetown coach John Thompson III will lead the organization’s athlete development and engagement department. Monumental also added Daniel Medina from the 76ers as chief of athlete care and performance. “We have formed a new leadership team with a forward-thinking structure to adapt to the ‘new NBA’ that requires every possible strategic advantage to compete and win,” Leonsis said in a release. “We are building a leadership brain trust with deep Wizards/NBA experience and with sports professionals from inside and outside the NBA to challenge our thinking and adapt to an ever-increasing competitive environment.”While Sheppard is a longtime fixture in the Wizards front office, having worked there the last 16 seasons, Brown is the name that likely will draw the most attention.The Harvard-educated attorney previously worked as a lawyer in Washington before serving as senior vice president and general counsel for the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2005-12. The Browns hired him away in a similar capacity in 2013, and he was put in charge of the team’s football operations in January 2016, lasting just under two years on the job before being fired near the end of the 2017 season. Cleveland went 1-27 during his tenure.

If you are dreaming of a WARM Christmas — your dream is going to come true. National Weather Service meteorologist Brooke Hagenhoff says temperatures in the 50s will be the norm the next couple of days.“We got a little taste of it here this weekend with some 50s and that will continue at least through midweek here — Wednesday at least until Thursday — and then things will start to cool off again,” Hagenhoff says. The forecast is calling for a high in the mid 50s on Christmas day.“It’s pretty unusual. Normal highs for this time of year are generally in the low 30s. The record high — at least for Christmas Day in Des Moines was 38 — and that was in 1936,” according the Hagenhoff. She says a small area in the far northern portion of the state is the only place that might not see the 50’s.“While we’re not quite going to get to those record highs — we are certainly much warmer than normal. It’s pretty rare to be this warm around the holiday season.” Hagenhoff talks about the weather pattern that’s causing the warmth.“We’ve got a pretty big ridge of what we call high pressure, and that’s allowed for a lot of southerly flow up out of Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico. So, a lot of the central U-S, across a lot of the central U-S and even into some of the northern plains, which as allowed for temperatures to really soar through a lot of this week,” Hagenhoff says. Temperatures toward the end of the week will fall a bit and there is a chance for some snow.She says the system will hit late this week into the weekend and drop temperatures closer to normal, which could include a little bit of snow or rain. Hagenhoff says the precipitation mix could hit right around the time people are heading back from Christmas visits.“Anyone that has travel plans here for the weekend is going to want to keep an eye on this. We don’t have quite the details we want yet, just because it is several days out. So, it will be something to keep an eye on as we fine tune the forecast for the weekend,” she says. One thing she is sure of — those who procrastinated in their Christmas shopping won’t have to worry about going out in wintry weather.“Any last minute shopping runs that people need to make should have excellent weather for that,” Hagenhoff says, “Nice and warm and dry.” But those who like a White Christmas will have to wait until next year.
