Female jockey makes history with 1st win in Melbourne

Confident Arsenal travel to Bayern Munich on Wednesday hoping to tame the German champions for a second time in two weeks, and are promising to attack despite a string of injuries.
The English club are on a high after a fifth consecutive Premier League win at the weekend — a 3-0 victory at Swansea — and the timing of their visit to the Bavarian capital could hardly be better.
Bayern dropped their first points in the Bundesliga on Friday with a goalless draw at Eintracht Frankfurt.
It followed 10 consecutive victories from the start of the season and, coupled with their 2-0 loss at the Emirates Stadium on Oct. 20 – their first defeat in all competitions – Bayern have shed some of that invincible aura.
Arsenaland’s victory over Bayern put Arsene Wengerand’s side back in contention in Group F with three points. Bayern and Olympiakos have six.
andquotThey [Bayern] will be angry,andquot said Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker. andquotWe are the first team who really challenged them and beat them. They will be on the ball and try to show that they are back and better than us.andquot
The former Germany international added: andquotThey are clever, the Germans. We showed that we can beat them. That is a good sign but it will be a different game at their placeandquot.
Arsenal are missing key players, including Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Danny Welbeck and Jack Wilshere.
But with Olivier Giroud having scored six goals in his past six games and playmaker Mesut andOzil delivering nine assists in 10 league games, they are not prepared to sit back and defend.
andquotI would sign today to take a point,andquot said coach Arsene Wenger. andquotBut to sit off Bayern, with their offensive quality, would be difficult to maintain for 90 minutes. We have to relieve the pressure whenever we can and try to score goals.andquot
Bayern, who last season won all six home games in the competition en route to the semifinals, are by no means in a slump, and their dominance and string of chances against defensive Eintracht was indicative of the teamand’s attacking instincts.
Bayern will have Arjen Robben fit for his first Champions League game of the season after the Dutchman was injured in September, but they will be without Mario Goetze, while Juan Bernat and Holger Badstuber are doubtful.
andquotWe will show Arsenal on Wednesday the real Bayern,andquot said Bayern midfielder Artuhief because of the Dec.17, 2013 corruption investigation. I called him a murderer because of those who were killed in Soma. I also called him a dictator because of his attitude and his way of treating people. I donand’t think I insulted him. I used my right to free speech. It is my democratic right,andquot he said in his defense.
The court ruled for his acquittal on the grounds that his remarks were an exercise of his right to free expression.
This is not the first ruling of its kind. Another court in Sinop had previously made a similar ruling, deciding that calling Erdogan andquotthief-murdererandquot is not an offense and acquitted six individuals who were tried on charges of insulting Erdogan during a demonstration staged to protest the Soma mining disaster in which 301 miners were killed in Soma, a town in the western province of Manisa, in May 2014.
However, dozens of people, including journalists Sedef Kabai, Hidayet Karaca and Mehmet Baransu as well as students, activists and even the former Miss Turkey, Merve Banduyanduksaraandc, have been prosecuted for insulting Erdogan on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.
Hundreds of people have been charged and some detained for insulting Erdogan since he was elected president in August 2014. These actions are widely considered a new way of intimidating political opponents.
