Speculation is mounting that Formula One is about to be revamped by a U. http:///...avison-Elite-Jersey/ .S. takeover that could bring new life and a higher profile for a sport that is struggling to attract new fans.Media reports suggest that F1s largest and controlling shareholder, the hedge fund CVC Capital Partners, is preparing to sell the business to U.S. media conglomerate Liberty Media for around $8.5 billion; more than four times CVCs original outlay in 2006.At last weekends Italian Grand Prix, Formula Ones commercial boss Bernie Ecclestone met with CVC co-chairman Donald Mackenzie, whose rare appearance in the paddock fueled speculation of an imminent deal. When speaking at Monza, however, the 85-year-old Ecclestone would not confirm whether or not a sale is going ahead.Liberty, a multi-billion dollar, mass-media company is run by 75-year-old John Malone. He is ranked 184th on the Forbes list of billionaires -- 69th in the U.S. -- with a net worth of $7.1 billion, and Forbes credits him as being the nations biggest individual landowner, with over two million acres across seven states.Malone would not be a newcomer to the high-end world of sport, since Liberty owns Major League Baseball side Atlanta Braves.Reportedly, with Malone in charge, F1s new chairman would become Chase Carey, the executive vice-chairman of 21st Century Fox.Despite its American base, Ecclestone was skeptical as to whether a takeover by Liberty would increase F1s success in the United States, which currently hosts only one of 21 races on the calendar and has no drivers competing in the championship. The only U.S. representative on the grid is the U.S.-backed Haas team, which arrived in F1 this season and has done reasonably well thanks to experienced French driver Romain Grosjean.To open the American market you need to have 10 races in America, sell tickets cheap and have a huge number of hamburger stands -- but then it would not be F1 any longer, Ecclestone told, the sports official website. But if all that scenario of the takeover is happening, then they can do what they want.CVC is F1s biggest shareholder with a 35.5 percent stake, followed by U.S. fund manager Waddell & Reed with just over 20 percent. Ecclestone has 5.3 percent stake in F1 but his family Bambino Trust has a further 8.5 percent, rounding up his involvement up to about 14 percent.Ecclestones own position in the event of a Liberty buyout is another subject of interest in the F1 paddock.When asked about it, the British billionaire replied in his trademark enigmatic style: I havent got a clue.Red Bull team principal Christian Horner, who welcomed Libertys interest, could not foresee a near-term exit for Ecclestone even under new management.It could be a really exciting deal for Formula One if it happens, Horner told reporters at Monza.But for a new group to come in without him being there would be very difficult, so Id assume hell be around for some time.Like Horner, Toto Wolff, the Mercedes head of motorsport, is enthusiastic about the prospect of a change of ownership -- despite being a close ally of Ecclestone.Wolff, who was interviewed alongside Ecclestone by, highlighted that the sports longstanding business boss has built an empire and we are benefiting from it.However, Wolff is also aware that a new investor could boost F1 -- which is in a transition period as it tries to win back flagging TV audiences, battles against falling crowds and plans to implement new rule changes for 2017 designed at increasing speed and overtaking.Veterans like Jenson Button, Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso are edging close to retirement, and a wave of talented young drivers, led by 18-year-old Dutch star Max Verstappen and 19-year-old Frenchman Esteban Ocon, is breaking through.Along with fresh investment, Wolff thinks the sport would also benefit from U.S. expertise in promoting sports in a digital world. By contrast, Ecclestone has been reluctant to open F1 up more to social media.There are things we can learn from the American way, particularly in the digital areas, Wolff said. They will have a close look and then analyze what they think needs to be changed and what needs to remain.There is a reason why these guys can afford to buy this. . Boucher previously coached the Tampa Bay Lightning and had a 97-78-20 record over two-plus seasons. He was dismissed by the team last March after the Lightning struggled in the lockout-shortened season with a 13-18-1 record.

A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Trainer Chad Brown was punching Breeders Cup tickets from New York to Kentucky on Saturday, following up major stakes wins at Belmont from Lady Eli in the Flower Bowl and Practical Joke in the Champagne with a victory from Irish Jasper in the Grade 2, $250,000 Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes at Keeneland.The Thoroughbred Club of America, like the Flower Bowl and Champagne, served as a Win and Youre In prep for the Breeders Cup, providing Irish Jasper with an entry-paid berth in the Filly and Mare Sprint on Nov. 5.The race began inauspiciously for Irish Jasper, who broke slowly, in much the same fashion that Practical Joke did in his victorious performance in the Champagne. But thereafter her trip could not have been much smoother. She settled in fifth, as favorite Stonetastic sped to the lead with a fast opening quarter in 21.84 seconds.Irish Jasper was able to get through along the fence, a position from which there were numerous winners on the Saturday card at Keeneland, and came inside Stonetastic in the final sixteenth to notch a 1-3/4-length victory.Bendable was a neck behind the runner-up, with Im a Looker three-quarters of a length back in fourthh. http:///...ertson-Elite-Jersey/. The victory provided Irish Jasper her first stakes victory since she rattled off three stakes victories as a 3-year-old in summer 2015, capped by victories in the Grade 3 Ms. Preakness and Grade 3 Victory Ride. A daughter of First Defence, she raced six furlongs on a fast track in 1:09.64, paying $8 as the second choice in the field of eight.It was a little scary at the beginning, winning jockey Julien Leparoux said of the start. I thought she was going to break a little bit better. She moved right when they opened the gate. But after that she traveled very good. We got through along on the rail and she made a big run at the end.The Thoroughbred Club of America proved significant for co-owner William Farish beyond the race itself, as in victory he notched his 24th graded stakes victory at Keeneland, becoming one of just two owners to do so, and received a commemorative bowl from the track.Farish and David Mackie purchased Irish Jasper from her prior owner and trainer, Derek Ryan, after she won the Victory Ride in July of last year.
