Hallandale Beach, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Sky Flight, ridden by Jose Lezcano, made a successful move into stakes company by winning Saturdays $75,000 Tropical Park Derby at Gulfstream Park. Trained by Mark Casse for John Oxley, Sky Flight broke from the inside post as the 9-2 third pick in the 12-horse field of 3-year-olds going 1 1/16 miles on the turf. Smooth Daddy was the 5-2 favorite with Other Cheek the 3-1 second choice. A veteran of three prior starts, Sky Flight made it three wins in a row with Saturdays stakes victory. The colt didnt start to run until the final turn when Lezcano, aboard for the first time, moved his mount to the outside. The race seemed to set up for us. He was going good and I wasnt going to rush him, ask him to do something he doesnt want to do, Lezcano said. He was comfortable and when I asked him to run he closed really well. Sky Flight ran down pacesetter Cement Clement nearing the wire and was able to post a length victory over the 25-1 longshot. Getting third was Smooth Daddy with Cabo Cat fourth. Hes been forwardly placed in his other races, but obviously the pace was a lot hotter today. Jose did the right thing and had him a little farther off the pace and it set up perfectly, said Norman Casse, assistant to his father. Jose rode a great race. Completing the order finish were Daddys Kid, Best Plan Yet, Other Cheek, My Storm Trooper, Morning Calm, Breitling Flyer and Roman Approval. Wallyanna was pulled up on the backstretch. Bashart and Ironicus were scratched. The time for the Tropical Park Derby was 1:40.25 on a firm turf course. Sky Flight received his largest paycheck of $43,245, increasing his earnings to $105,445 with three wins in four starts. Racing exclusively on grass, the 3-year-old was fifth in his debut race at Kentucky Downs followed by a pair of wins at Keeneland and Churchill Downs, respectively. Earlier on as a 2-year-old he had shown a lot of talent, but he came up with some baby issues and we backed off on him, Norm Casse said. Ever since weve got him back in full training, hes really progress well, every week, really. It seems like the skys the limit and today was a big step. Sky Flight returned $11.40, $7.60 and $4.80. Cement Clement paid $24.40 and $13.80, and Smooth Daddy paid $3.40 to show.

Alvarez hit his first career home run, pitched six innings and hurt his right hamstring while running the bases in the Miami Marlins 4-3 win over the Chicago Cubs.CLEVELAND -- At 7-foot-3, Zydrunas Ilgauskas towered over everyone yet stayed completely down to earth. Soft-spoken and doggedly determined, Ilgauskas, who overcame serious injuries and personal tragedy to become one of Clevelands best and most beloved players, will have his No. 11 jersey retired Saturday night during an elaborate halftime ceremony certain to be emotionally poignant. The seventh player in team history to receive the honour, Ilgauskas joins Austin Carr, Nate Thurmond, Bobby "Bingo" Smith, Larry Nance, Brad Daugherty and Mark Price in having his number raised to the rafters of Quicken Loans Arena. All of them have career credentials worthy of the tribute, but the celebration for Ilgauskas goes far beyond any statistics. "Throw basketball stuff out the window," Cavs coach Mike Brown said. "Hes a terrific human being." Ilgauskas will be joined at the celebration by his wife, Jennifer, and their adopted sons, Deividas and Povilas. Hell be surrounded by family members, friends, former coaches and teammates, including LeBron James, who was invited by Ilgauskas and wanted to support the player known simply as "Z." "Probably one of the most talented guys I ever played with," James said. Ilgauskas conquered career-threatening foot injuries to become a two-time NBA All-Star as well as the Cavs career leader in rebounds (5,904), games played (771) and blocks (1,269). Hes second on the scoring list, behind only James. A gentle giant off the floor, Ilgauskas accomplished it all through hard work, enduring endless hours of grueling rehab and treatment to fulfil a dream that began as a small boy playing soccer and volleyball in Lithuania. Ilgauskas spent 12 seasons with the Cavs, and for a long stretch of his tenure he was the only good thing about the franchise. That all changed when James arrived in 2003, and along with Ilgauskas -- an odd couple if there ever was one -- they led the Cavs to their only NBA finals appearance in 2007. One of the enduring moments in Cleveland sports over the last 30 years was James and Ilgauskas wrapping their arms around each otherr to celebrate the Cavs win over Detroit in the Eastern Conference finals.dddddddddddd After being traded, Ilgauskas followed James to Miami and played one season with the Heat. Ilgauskas retired in 2011, but returned to the Cavs the following year and has been working as a special assistant to the general manager. Hes always been special. Ilgauskas connected with Cleveland fans like few pro athletes. Big Z endeared himself with his perseverance, resilience, loyalty and a dry, self-deprecating sense of humour. Shortly after undergoing his second major foot surgery, Ilgauskas quipped he "had as much hardware as Home Depot" in his feet. The Cavs selected Ilgauskas with the 20th overall pick in 1996, and after a promising rookie season in 1997-98, he encountered the first of many medical obstacles. Shortly after signing a six-year, $71 million contract, he broke his left foot just five games into the 1998-99 season. It didnt heal properly and Ilgauskas sat out the entire 1999-2000 season. Ilgauskas seemed poised to become one of the leagues top centres, but felt a sharp pain in his left foot during a game in Miami. Ilgauskas took himself out, and broke down in the locker room after, knowing his playing days might be over at 25. After visiting foot specialists across the country, Ilgauskas underwent a risky operation to have his left foot radically reconstructed. He tortured himself during workouts to get back, and spent countless hours getting treatment on his feet, which required extensive icing before and after he played. It all paid off when Ilgauskas was named an All-Star reserve in 2003. There were other hardships, the most challenging in 2007 when he and Jennifer lost the twins she was carrying. Through it all, Ilgauskas was the consummate teammate. "Zs like a big brother to me," Cavs centre Anderson Varejao said. "He helped me a lot in this league, with everything, basketball, on the road. When I got here I didnt speak any English. He put me under his wing and took care of me. Hes a big part of my life." And in Cleveland, Ilgauskas has always been so much more than big.
