UPI Horse Racing Weekend Preview: Justify eyes Preakness Stakes

UPI Horse Racing Weekend Preview: Justify eyes Preakness Stakes

Sports
The sun didn't shine on My Old Kentucky Home on Derby Day this year and it's unlikely to shine on Saturday's Preakness, either. But for Derby winner Justify, the rain disappeared as he took the track at Pimlico for the first time. The Peakness, middle jewel of the Triple Crown, is the highlight of another massive international weekend of Thoroughbred racing. Pimlico has a full slate of stakes supporting the Preakness with additional important racing on both coasts and at Arlington Park. Red Lion has already roared at York in England, staking his claim to Derby consideration. Yet to come is the Group 1 Lockinge at Newbury with Rhododendron set to bloom. The 3-year-old fillies -- and some of their first-crop sires -- shine in Japan. But first, back to Old Hilltop. The Triple Crown A field ...
Xiaomi eyes a giant Chinese IPO

Xiaomi eyes a giant Chinese IPO

Finance
IN CHINA no company achieved $ 1bn in annual revenue as quickly as Xiaomi did, in the year following the launch of its first smartphone in 2011. Chinese media initially nicknamed Xiaomi the “Apple of the East” (its literal translation is “little rice”). That was a stretch, even in good times. But within another two years the affordable-handset-maker became the world’s most valuable startup, worth $ 46bn.Analysts reckon that it now wants to raise up to $ 10bn in an initial public offering (IPO) on Hong Kong’s stock exchange which was announced on May 3rd. (Its filing documents disclose neither the valuation that it is seeking, nor a fundraising target.) That could afford it a very generous valuation of as much as $ 80bn—not far off the $ 91bn market...

Ex-Rams WR Stedman Bailey eyes NFL comeback after being shot in head

Sports
More than two years after former St. Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey was shot in the head, leading doctors to say his football career was over, Bailey is attempting a comeback. Bailey worked out at Marshall's Pro Day on Wednesday, running routes and catching passes from Marshall quarterback Chase Litton. "This is the first opportunity for me to show scouts what I've got and how I'm feeling," Bailey told the Huntington (W.Va.) Herald Dispatch. "I'm just here to capitalize on the opportunity." Bailey was shot twice in the head in a drive-by attack on Nov. 24, 2015, while he was a passenger in a car in Miami Gardens, Fla. Although his life was never in danger, he suffered a fractured skull and was in critical condition. "I never had a doubt in my mind that I'd be able to play again," ...
