Frespanol has erased memories of his last trip to the Sunshine Coast with victory in the open handicap, a race deferred from the Doomben wash-out.The 1350m-race abandoned on Saturday was added to what was already a 12--race program on Wednesday with many of the runners being prepared for upcoming summer features.Ridden by Jim Byrne, former Sydney-trained Frespanol ($10) scored by a short head to Jopa ($9) on Wednesday with a half length to third-placed Harada Bay ($8).The last time Frespanol headed to the Sunshine Coast in April he was in a float which rolled down an embankment on the Bruce Highway and he spent 40 minutes trapped inside.Frespanol and the three other horses on the truck escaped serious injury but he missed the winter carnival.Trainer Tony Gollan, who is in New Zealand for a horse sale, said by phone the win had come as no surprise and Frespanol had improved with each race this campaign.He was good first-up and then had no luck at all second-up when caught deep, Gollan said.He is a nice horse and he will now run in the Recognition Stakes at Eagle Farm on Saturday week.After that he will chase the feature races such as the Lough Neagh and Bernborough Stakes in the summer.Gollan said Frespanol owed him a win in a stakes race from his days when the gelding was trained in Sydney.He actually beat me in a stakes race when Gai Waterhouse trained him. My mare Tornado Miss ran second to him in the 2015 Spear Chief Stakes at Doomben, Gollan said.I do think he will be even fitter next time so the stakes race might be soon.Group Two winner Rudy lost no friends when he came from third last to finish fifth.

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- By the time Michigan State plays at Notre Dame, the Spartans will have had two weeks to prepare for the test.It looks like theyll need it.No. 12 Michigan State must improve after a lackluster, season-opening 28-13 win against Furman to beat the Fighting Irish Sept. 17 on the road.The Spartans, though, did do enough to keep their ranking Tuesday in The Associated Press college football poll after avoiding an upset to the Southern Conference team.After the football game, you wish you wouldve won going away a little bit easier, Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said. But the reality of the situation, everybody comes in with a plan. Congratulate Furman for that. We made some mistakes penalty-wise and turnover-wise that kept the game close.The Spartans were on defense, leading by just eight, early in the fourth quarter when Tyler OConnor threw an interception in his second career start. They got the ball right back with a pick of their own and OConnor later sealed the win with a touchdown pass with 4:55 left.Michigan State had two turnovers, forced only one turnover, and had 10 penalties for 120 yards to extend a lot of Furmans drives Friday night.Dantonio left Spartan Stadium unhappy.The next day, he felt a little better.On Saturday as Im watching all these other games, Dantonio said, and Im seeing all these close games, you start to get an understanding that they all count one as coach (George) Perles would always tell me and that you go onto the next thing. But were 1-0 right now. Well count that. And, well take this week to get rready and then to look forward to Notre Dame next week.ddddddddddddNotre Dame was ranked No. 10 when it lost at Texas 50-47 in two overtimes Sunday night, a game Dantonio watched live on TV and scouted the next day.The Irish dropped to No. 18 in the AP poll and will likely have a chance to bounce back at home Saturday against Nevada before hosting Michigan State the following week.Its crucial that we get better because we obviously have a lot of areas that we need to improve, OConnor said Tuesday night after a full-padded practice. Usually teams make their greatest improvement from Week 1 to Week 2. We get a chance to make that improvement with an extra week in between. Its different. We were actually talking about how strange it is to open on a Friday night and then have two full weeks off between games.The extra time will allow the Spartans to spend a lot of time studying what Notre Dame did against Texas, which shot up to No. 11 in the AP poll. They will also have an opportunity to see adjustments Notre Dame makes for its second game against Nevada.Were going to really be able to dig in deep on Notre Dame, OConnor said. Even though some of the schemes may be different, well get to see a lot of what their players can do.---Online: AP College football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Larry Lage at www.twitter.com/larrylage and follow his work at www.bigstory.ap.org/content/larry-lage ' ' '
