    导出博客文章Michael Dee heads to unfamiliar territory in Sydney on Festival Stakes day as he
    approaches a significant milestone in the latter stages of his
    apprenticeship.The Melbourne-based New Zealander needs two city wins to lose his
    claim and and will ride at Rosehill for the first time on Saturday.The
    20-year-old is booked to partner the Ciaron Maher-trained Hazzabeel in the Group
    Three Festival Stakes (1500m) and will also be aboard Husson Eagle in the Listed
    Starlight Stakes unless Racing NSW does a backflip and lets Michelle Payne
    ride.Racing NSW doesnt recognise dual trainer/jockey licences which Payne holds
    in Victoria, meaning she is classed as a trainer only in NSW.Payne has been
    hoping Racing NSW will reverse its decision so she can continue her association
    with Husson Eagle who is trained by her brother Patrick.On Monday, Racing NSW
    said its position was unchanged.If she doesnt get her licence granted, Ill be
    going up for two really nice rides, Dee said.The 20-year-old Dee has only ridden
    once in Sydney when third in the Group One Metropolitan on the Godolphin-owned
    Allergic last month at Randwick.He was keen to stick with Hazzabeel after riding
    the former Perth-based horse to a 1-3/4 length win in the Listed Kilmore Cup
    (1600m) on November 20.He just won the Kilmore Cup that well and I think Ciaron
    has got him back on track, Dee said.He was originally going to go to Perth for
    the Kingston Town Stakes (this Saturday) but due to flights getting cancelled
    and he had to divert and change plans. There was this nice race in Sydney for
    him.The race was run to suit him in the Kilmore Cup with good tempo and he was
    able to work into it nicely and win running away from them. I think if there was
    good speed in the race this weekend, he should be able to do the same.At what is
    a vital stage of his career, Dee is keen to use Saturdays opportunity to show
    trainers he can compete against the senior riders without a claim .Its also a
    good opportunity to get in a different area and be riding in these good races,
    he said.He is looking forward to the challenge as a senior rider.I won the
    Kilmore Cup the other day and Ive won a few other stakes races here in
    Melbourne. So I dont see why I cant take the next step, he said.

    look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013. Today, we look back at Boston
    Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Moe Wagner slapped
    at the ball with his right hand, and it popped straight up in the air.For a
    moment, it looked like a possible foul.As far as I know, I blocked it, Wagner
    said.The officials concurred, and Michigan held on for a 53-50 victory over
    Texas on Tuesday night. Wagner gave the Wolverines the lead on a putback with
    18.8 seconds remaining, and then the sophomore blocked a shot by Eric Davis Jr.
    at the other end.Wagner led the Wolverines (7-2) with 15 points, and the
    6-foot-11 forward from Germany made the biggest plays down the stretch. When Zak
    Irvin missed a driving layup, Wagner came up with the rebound and scored to put
    Michigan up 51-50.I thought he was terrific, Texas coach Shaka Smart said. I
    thought he was the best player on the floor tonight.The Wolverines hounded Texas
    (4-4) on the next possession, and Davis drove down the left edge of the lane.
    Wagner blocked his path, and the Texas guard tried to force a tough shot over
    him. Wagner contested it , and the ball never made it to the basket.Couldve
    gotten a better one, Davis said. Any one of us couldve taken it.Muhammad-Ali
    Abdur Rahkman ripped the loose ball away for Michigan, then made two free throws
    with 2.5 seconds to play. The Longhorns could only manage a desperation shot
    from around midcourt.Tevin Mack led Texas with 18 points, 13 coming in the first
    half.D.J. Wilson scored 13 points for Michigan, and Duncan Robinson added 12.BIG
    PICTURETexas: This was the first true road game of the season for the Longhorns,
    and they nearly pulled it out in a tight, defensive struggle. Texas held Irvin
    to only three points after he entered as Michigans top scorer. The Longhorns
    shot only 38.5 percent from the field, which was ultimately their
    undooing.ddddddddddddichigan: The Wolverines let a home game slip away against
    Virginia Tech last week, and they had to scrap their way to this victory.
    Michigan wants to become a better defensive team this season, and in that sense,
    this was a positive step -- especially on the key possession at the end. The
    Wolverines, who had fouls to give, played aggressively, and Wagner came up with
    the block.With Moes emergence right now -- and hes a long ways away -- but it
    gives us another way to play, Michigan coach John Beilein said.STRUGGLESMichigan
    didnt get much scoring from its two senior starters. Irvin was scoreless until
    his 3-pointer with 4:03 remaining tied it at 48. After that shot went in, he
    raised both his arms skyward in apparent relief.Derrick Walton had only seven
    points and five turnovers for the Wolverines. He needs nine more points to reach
    1,000.You dont see us win many where its just about -- our defense was gritty,
    Beilein said. It was tough in the last two minutes. Everything it wasnt in the
    Virginia Tech last two or three minutes, it was tonight, where our kids just sat
    down and guarded. Nobody could make a shot. It was not a pretty offensive game,
    but we got done what we had to get done.UP NEXTTexas: The Longhorns return home
    to face Long Beach State on Saturday.Michigan: The Wolverines take on another
    big-name opponent when they play at No. 2 UCLA on Saturday. The unbeaten Bruins
    will be Michigans last road opponent before conference play.---More AP college
