Later start to Rosehill trackwork blocked by stable staff

From squirrels with form to athletes putting their heads on the line, these are the most exciting, silly and downright crazy plays in the sporting world this week.

Tough to figure O'Brien Horse of the Year for 2015

The winner of the Shes A Great Lady, Three Diamonds and Eternal Camnation, all held in Ontario, stood out from the pack, and she certainly met all the qualifications for the award, but the owner - 3 Brothers Stables - consists of three brothers from New York, the trainer, Nancy Johansson, is based in New Jersey, and the horse was bred in New York, so her Canadian credentials weren't strong enough for some. As a result, the Casie Coleman trainee, McWicked, whose only stakes win in Canada was a Cup elimination, received 11 votes to the filly's 19. So when there isn't a standout Canadian based trotter or pacer, handicapping the Horse of the Year contest up North can be tricky.
