As the Christmas/New Year racing period approaches the Flemington stable of cousins Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra invariably makes an impact.Last year after a quiet spring they had a successful December culminating in four winners at Flemington on New Years Day.With a little over three weeks left this month, Ellerton and Zahra has a team of seven runners heading to Flemington on Saturday.Three line up in the Lanec Services Handicap - Euston Road, Blithe Belle and Magna Rosa - all at double figure odds.Zahra expects the trio to run forward races especially as they all come off the back of some recent good jump-outs and go into the 1000m race fresh.Blithe Belle hasnt raced since winning at Caulfield in July but is a progressive type according to Zahra.Her trials have been really good and she will improve off them, Zahra said.Euston Road goes well up the straight and is a good fresh horse.Shes had a couple of jump-outs and has been freshened since.Magna Rosa has a tongue tie fitted for Saturdays race after getting her tongue over the bit when last at Geelong in October.Zahra said the mare was sent to owner David Moodies property for a freshen-up and arrived back in the stable in great order.She looks a lot better, Zahra said.She looked a bit ribby and wintry in her coat before the freshen up and we couldnt get her to turn around.We sent her up to Davids farm for a month or so and shes been thriving since.Theres three nice horses in the race. It looks a nice race and each has a chance.The stable will also be represented by Not A Happy Camper ($11) in the Plenary Group Handicap, What A Shock ($13) in the Dorevitch Pathology Charity Plate, Rough Justice ($7.50) in the Western Health First Response Pharmacy Cup and Sir Sagamore ($8.50) in the Western Health Foundation Handicap.

There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season.

PETERSBURG, Fla. Christian Pulisic Jersey . -- Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was charged Thursday with driving while intoxicated, a day after he was suspended for an NFL substance-abuse policy violation. OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The Baltimore Ravens are headed for a showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers, a Christmas Day matchup with all sorts of playoff implications.A victory puts the winner on the cusp of a division title while the loser will likely be on the outside of the Wild Card race, needing help to get in the postseason.The Ravens have won the past four matchups against their archrival and should be unfazed by the thousands of Terrible Towels waving at Heinz Field. Baltimore, however, would also likely need to beat Cincinnati in the regular-season finale to win their first AFC North crown since 2012.The situation we find ourselves in is something that weve been working hard for, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. Our guys have been fighting like crazy to go to Pittsburgh and then onto to Cincinnati to try and win a division championship. Theyve earned the right to do that and were fired up about it. We cant wait to play the game.With a victory over Pittsburgh, Baltimore (8-6) would sweep the season series and take over first place in the division. The Steelers (9-5) would clinch their seventh AFC North title with a win against Baltimore. Pittsburgh closes out its regular season with a home game against the winless Cleveland Browns.The players for Baltimore are energized by the challenge of playing the Steelers in what is sure to be a raucous crowd.This is what you live for, Ravens safety Eric Weddle said. Its all the hours, all the sacrifice, all the time, its for a chance to win the division and get into the dance. You hope and dream every day youre getting up at 6 a.m. or 5 a.m., you dont see your kids -- its for this chance, and its all worth it. Well be ready to roll, (theres) nothing more out there for us (than) to have a chance at the division against a rival team. Its going to be amazing.One key for Baltimore over the final two weeks of the regullar season will be establishing a more balanced offense.dddddddddddd Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has attempted 579 passes, while the the team has run the ball 325 times, ranked 27th in the NFL.The emphasis on throwing the ball almost ended Baltimores postseason hopes Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.It appeared the Ravens were about to put the game away when Flacco found receiver Mike Wallace for a 54-yard gain with just over six minutes left in the fourth quarter. With a 10-point lead, Baltimore could have just run the ball and settled for a field goal from the reliable Justin Tucker.However, Flacco threw an interception on the next play that helped Philadelphia get back in the game. The Ravens eventually stopped a 2-point conversion with four seconds remaining to preserve the 27-26 victory.Harbaugh said the decision to throw the ball was the all-time worst call ever. Flacco, however, defended the aggressiveness of offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.Well, you can say it all you want but, I mean, to be honest with you, my thought was `shoot, Marty is going to give me a third touchdown pass on the day, said Flacco, who was 16 of 30 for 206 yards with two touchdowns and the interception. I was kind of happy about it at that point, I mean, being selfish, but youve got to just to take care of the football and its a non-issue.Nonetheless, the Ravens earned the victory. Now, they control their own destiny for the postseason after a one-year hiatus.We want to win a Super Bowl, so we have to go through Pittsburgh next week to get there, running back Kenneth Dixon said. Thats what were going to do. Were going to go prepare and do our best.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL . ' ' '
