                                      ELMONT, N. Lynn Swann Jersey .Y. -- Anchor Down does his best work in one-turn-mile races at Belmont Park, something he demonstrated again Saturday with an impressive two-length victory in the Grade 2, $350,000 Kelso Handicap.Taking the lead soon after the start under Javier Castellano, Anchor Down got away with an opening quarter of 23.30 seconds but then picked up the pace, running a half-mile in 45.74, six furlongs in 1:09:05, and a mile in 1:32.90 after turning back an upper-stretch challenge from Tamarkuz.Tamarkuz finshed second by 4-1/2 lengths over Ocean Knight, who was followed by Point Piper and Tommy Macho. Upstart and Baccelo were scratched.Though the Kelso can be used as a prep for the $1 million Breeders Cup Dirt Mile, winning trainer Todd Pletcher indicated that the Grade 1 Cigar Mile at Aqueduct on Nov. 26 would be more likely for Anchor Down. The Breeders Cup Dirt Mile is a two-turn race this year at Santa Anita.I tend to think his forte is a one-turn mile, Pletcher said. Well play it by ear, wont rule anything out, but if I had to guess today, wed probably be looking more towards the Cigar Mile.If only the Cigar Mile were at Belmont, where Anchor Down won the Westchester in May and ran second to the freaky Frosted in the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap in the fastest clocking of that races 123-year history.The final time of the Kelso was the fastest in seven runnings of that race since it was officially moved to the dirt from the turf. It also was just 0.66 seconds off the track record set by Najran in the 2003 Westchester.Running a mile in 132-and-4 with a son of Tapit with his bottom-side [pedigree] is a big win for him, said Pletcher, who trains Anchor Down for Alto Racing.Anchor Down returned $6 as the 2-1 favorite.Tamarkuz, under Mike Smith, stalked Anchor Down all the way around the track. At the top of the stretch, Smith briefly thought he had a shot to reel in Anchor Down.He just ran a freaky race today, the winner, Smith said. I thought I had a chance to go by him, but I was watching that horses body language and his head, and he still had something left. I said, Im going to have to dig somewhere I didnt have to dig yet to get him, and I couldnt. Not today, anyway. Jack Lambert Youth Jersey .

LOS ANGELES -- The Dallas Cowboys and Pro Bowl center Travis Frederick have agreed to a contract extension through 2023, a source confirmed.A league source told ESPNs Adam Caplan that the deal, which kicks in beginning in 2018, is for six years and $56.4 million, with $28.2 million guaranteed.Frederick has yet to sign the contract. He was in the locker room getting dressed for Saturdays preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams when the deal became finalized.Obviously theres risk involved any time you step out on the field, whether its practice or a game, so to have the security of having it done before I stepped on the field in case anything happened was important, Frederick said. But also because I wanted to have that behind me so I could really focus on football.The Cowboys drafted Frederick in the first round of the 2013 draft and he has not missed a start. He has been named to the Pro Bowl the past two years and is widely considered one of the best centers in the NFL.The Cowboys were criticized when they took Fredeerick after moving down to the 31st overall pick in a deal with the San Francisco 49ers.

Panos also represents left tackle Tyron Smith, who signed an eight-year extension worth $98 million in 2014.The Cowboys have made keeping their offensive line intact for years to come. It started with Smith in 2014, continued now with the deal for Frederick.
