In Sports News this week: Sixteen ridden by Dusan Andres wins the Czech Republic's most famous horse race, the Velka Pardubicka steeplechase; Czech motorcyclist Lukas Pesek wins the second Grand Prix of his career in Australia; and captain Tomas Rosicky is set to play in Wednesday's Euro 2008 qualifier against Germany.
Sixteen takes 117th Velka Pardubicka steeplechase
Mr Vana also trained the runner-up Decent Fellow, who won in Pardubice last year. By the way, Sixteen is apparently the first ever white mare to win the Velka Pardubicka.
First place in Australia gives Czech motorcyclist Pesek chance of third place in championship
"Throughout the whole race he was fourth only on one lap; otherwise he was in first or second place. He was in first during the last lap and he made sure he didn't let victory slip away. He was great today, he was confident and didn't make mistakes - everything went according to plan."
That brilliant result for the Czech rider puts him back in contention for bronze in the overall season's standings - Pesek is now just five points off third place.
Rosicky returns from injury to face Germany in Euro 2008 qualifier
"You have to be careful. I'd never risk a player's health if I wasn't 100 percent sure he was fit. That may sound negative, but the player's health always has to come first."
