HIT THE ROAD ALL BUSINESS IN WINNING $100,000 ZUMA BEACH STAKES BY 2 ¼ LENGTHS UNDER ESPINOZA

first_imgHIT THE ROAD ALL BUSINESS IN WINNING $100,000 ZUMA BEACH STAKES BY 2 ¼ LENGTHS UNDER ESPINOZA; TRAINED BY BLACKER, HE GETS MILE ON TURF IN 1:34.33ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 6, 2019)–Although he encountered some early traffic trouble, trainer Dan Blacker’s Hit the Road settled nicely and unfurled an impressive turn of foot through the lane to draw off to a 2 ¼ length tally in Sunday’s $100,000 Zuma Beach Stakes at Santa Anita.  Ridden by Victor Espinoza, the 2-year-old More Than Ready colt got a flat mile on turf in 1:34.33.Breaking from post position three in a field of seven juvenile colts and geldings, Hit the Road was making his first start since breaking his maiden in similar fashion at one mile on turf July 28 at Del Mar.“This was my first time on this horse and he showed me a lot,” said Espinoza, who got the mount due to the fact Joe Talamo was away to ride in New York today.  “The favorite (Encoder) came out on me going into the first turn, so I had to take him back, and we ended up last around the first turn.  I was really impressed with how he handled it, because when I asked him to pick it up, he was very strong.  He’s got a long stride and he covers a lot of ground.  That was impressive.”Off at 7-1 in his third career start, Hit the Road, who is out of the U S Ranger mare Highway Mary, paid $16.60, $8.40 and $5.00.Owned by D K Racing, LLC, Radley Equine, Inc., Taste of Victory Stables and Rick Gold, Hit the Road bagged $60,000 for the win, increasing his earnings to $96,951.“He got sick the day we were going to run him at Del Mar (explaining his absence since July 28),” said Blacker.  “But he had been working well and we expected a big performance. Victor rode him awesome.  He did a great job, I’m just so thrilled for the owners for giving me a chance with a horse like this…”When asked if the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf on Nov. 1 was an option, Blacker said, “I hope so, if he gets in. When we bought him, we knew he had a grass pedigree and hopefully would run well on turf, but you never know until they do it.”Ridden by Abel Cedillo and trained by Doug O’Neill, War Beast led throughout, but was no match for the winner late, finishing second by a neck over Billy Batts.  Off at 17-1, War Beast paid $16.20 and $8.00.The second choice at 7-2 with Tiago Pereira, Billy Batts finished 1 ¼ lengths in front of Encoder and paid $4.00 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.21, 46.81, 1:10.65 and 1:22.78.last_img read more

Dr Paul Wright: Swift decision needed to fix horse racing industry

first_img NEGOTIATIONS Last week, the best kept secret in horse racing in Jamaica was officially exposed. There was a statement from the Government that Supreme Ventures was now the preferred bidder in the much ballyhooed divestment of Caymanas Park, the only racetrack in the island. Although everybody at the track knew that Supreme Ventures had won months before, the comments from the vice president of the trainers’ association and the president of the Jamaica Racehorse Owners Association (JROA) reflected sentiments at the track that racing NEEDED divestment. Some of the older (and wiser?) fans and punters at the track were very wary of the announcement, however, as they remembered that there were two previous ‘preferred bidders’ in the planned divestment of racing out of the hands of Government and into the hands of private individuals (or companies) with the knowledge and the money that is so vital in the successful promotion of racing, as the Danny Melville-led Board showed some year s ago. Both bids came to nought. So after the collective sigh of relief from the representatives of the stakeholders in racing, came the return to reality by statements from Paul Hoo, a representative of Supreme Ventures and from lawyers representing the present champion jockey at the track, Shane Ellis. First, Mr Hoo reminded all of us in racing that the title ‘preferred bidder’ only means that negotiations for the divestment will now begin in earnest and the lawyers for Mr Ellis obtained an injunction in the courts that restrained the planned divestment until the promoting company, Caymanas Track Limited (CTL), settled a lawsuit brought by Mr Ellis against the CEO of the track, who made comments (deemed derogatory by Mr Ellis and his lawyers). Those comments were made after Mr Ellis fell from a horse during a race some years ago. So for at least the next 9-12 months the status quo at the track remains – no Board in place and management that has become decidedly worse after the ‘preferred bidder’ official statement. For example, ‘technical difficulties’ is now the official response to queries about race day incidents that reek of incompetence. Last Saturday, a race was held up for at least 15 minutes because of ‘technical difficulties’ at the starting gate. It turned out that the gates “malfunctioned” because of a “lack of power”. This was quickly remedied by the frantic call for an electrician – obviously transported in a van racing from the starting gate to the grandstand area over and over again – to correct a problem that scheduled and regular maintenance checks could have prevented. The first race, on more than one occasion, has been delayed by “technical difficulties” when investigations revealed that a crucial member of the management team was “late” coming to work. Betting terminals at Off Track betting stations are turned on up to one hour late on race days because of “technical difficulties”, which on investigation revealed that crucial operatives “came to work late”. Horses are withdrawn from races because of lameness or illness the day before racing are not declared as late non-starters until a few minutes before the scheduled start of the race, playing havoc with the important exotic wagers of punters whose selection is now transferred to the ‘on time favourite’, which in some case have very little or no chance of winning and therefore depriving the knowledgeable punter from choosing another horse with a more realistic winning chance. I could go on and on. Racing cannot continue like this. The Chinese ambassador has praised the present Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, for his penchant for making “quick decisions”. Racing people are now calling for a swift decision by his Government to try to correct the present promotion of racing. TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIESlast_img read more

A rocky season for Warriors, but a perfect ending awaits

first_imgGolden State Warriors’ Draymond Green, left, and Stephen Curry celebrate during the first half against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 3 of basketball’s NBA Finals, Wednesday, June 6, 2018, in Cleveland. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)CLEVELAND — By Golden State standards, this season was downright bumpy.The Warriors won only 58 regular-season games, by far their fewest in this four-year run of excellence. They went 7-10 in their final 17 games of the regular season. Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala all got hurt. They needed to win a Game 7 on the road to reach the NBA Finals, and they could have easily lost two of the first three games of this series.ADVERTISEMENT Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Winfrey details her decision to withdraw from Simmons film They got healthy.And they’re about to beat everybody.They did it the hard way, without question. Houston finished seven games ahead of the Warriors in the regular season, earning the right to be the No. 1 overall seed in the playoffs. If the Rockets had Chris Paul for Game 6 or Game 7 of that series, if Paul’s hamstring hadn’t betrayed him at the worst possible time, then the Warriors could very well be on vacation right now.“Every season is very different,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “Every journey is a new one each season. Yet the cumulative effect on multiple journeys adds up, and we have felt that this year. I think it’s been our most inconsistent season. It’s been our most difficult season. But our guys sense the finish line, and they turned it on right from the beginning of the playoffs defensively.”The finish line is now within sight.If the Warriors finish this off — no team in NBA history has blown a 3-0 series lead — then all the hiccups of the regular season will be forgotten. There will be a parade in the Bay Area before long, championship rings to hand out and another banner to unfurl on opening night next season, and more free agents likely will take a look at signing with Golden State in an effort to add to their own jewelry collections.But if things get rocky next season, the Warriors will also have the experiences from this year to draw upon. In short, not looking their best at times this season might ultimately make them better.“It’s been a crazy ride,” Curry said. “So now we’ve just got to finish the job.” Woods to play with No. 1 and 2 in the world at US Open MOST READ Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operations View comments Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding China population now over 1.4 billion as birthrate falls Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. center_img Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Weinstein rape trial Yet here they are.Golden State is on the cusp of another NBA championship, holding a 3-0 series lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers going into Game 4 of the finals.

When you win a championship and you’re around guys for a long period of time, and you know what you’re capable of doing, all you need is to get healthy.“If you can get healthy and guys are playing at the right level at the same time, then you can feel like you can beat anybody.”ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Lacson: Calamity fund cut; where did P4 billion go?

24 primary schools to receive reading spaces

first_imgPrimary students in Regions Five (Mahaica-Berbice) and Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) will now have a place in their schools to read as a result of a drive held by students of the University of Guyana.The Division of Education and Humanities in collaboration with the University of Guyana Berbice Campus’ Library and the Education Department on Saturday held its second Christmas Cheer and Book Drive drawing which will see 24 classrooms given a complete reading space equipped with fully stocked bookshelves.The project is aimed at enabling primary schools to promote literacy through reading for pleasure and was undertaken by 36 students from the class “Teaching of Language Arts at the Primary Level”.Lecturer and Project Coordinator, Pamela Rose, while delivering an overview of the project, explained that the course is to help teachers not only to understand the Language Arts needs of their students but to also design strategies to meet those needs.“Classroom teaching in this course emphasises the transformational model of learning and the contextual view of learning where students’ learning is made more meaningful and relevant when linked with real-life activities and real-life needs. This project undertaken by the EEN 4102 class has the potential to support national efforts to improve literacy in primary schools through collaborative partnership activities conducted in four phases,” Rose is quoted by the Department of Public Information (DPI) as saying.Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic Affairs Professor Michael Scott applauded the initiative and noted that literacy encompasses much more than reading and writing: it includes the capacity to read, understand and logically appreciate various forms of communication.Meanwhile, a student of the class, Janelle Felix delivered the report on the project and said it positively helped teachers in addressing reading problems by enhancing the children’s word recognition and vocabulary skills.The Book Drive initiative started in 2017 and after recognising the impact the programme made in 25 schools in Region Six including schools in the riverain areas, such as Orealla and Baracara, the team extended the project to Region Five. The reading spaces will be officially handed over in January 2019.last_img read more

Pochettino eyeing these quality youngsters to improve Tottenham?

first_img 4 Sergi Samper: Midfield – Click the arrow for more – A lot has been said about Samper’s ability on the ball and superb vision and he has been mentioned in the same breadth as Pep Guardiola, the former manager and midfield pivot. With energy to burn and Sergio Busquets, Xavi and Andres Iniesta to learn from, the 19-year-old has a very promising future in football. He was even linked with a move to White Hart Lane during Andre Villas-Boas’ time in charge. Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was spotted watching a Barcelona B game during the international break.The young Barca boys were in action against Numancia and drew 1-1, though whether Pochettino just fancied watching players who are able to pass a ball, or if he was on a scouting mission is unclear.Having played for and managed Barcelona-based club Espanyol for a number of years, he may have just blagged a couple of free tickets…Anyway, here are four quality Barcelona B players he would have been impressed by. 4 4 Adama Traore: Winger – Traore was just 17 when he made his debut for Barcelona in 2013, becoming the ninth youngest player to play for the first team when he replaced Neymar against Granada. That happened before the winger even made his debut for the B team. The 18-year-old is very quick and difficult for defenders to stop in one on one situations and has been linked to both Everton and Man United in the past. Despite Traore claiming his agent is negotiating a new deal, nothing has been signed and his contract is up in the summer. Munir El-Haddadi: Forward – Click the arrow for more – Born in Madrid, El-Haddadi made his debut for the Barca first team in August, days before he turned 19 and scored to make the day truly memorable. He won the UEFA Youth League in May, top scoring with 11 goals including one from the halfway line as Benfica were beaten 3-0. As well as goal scoring, he has bags of skill and has an exceptional work-rate. He is very highly rated in Barcelona and with Arsenal and Chelsea said to be circling, it is thought he will sign a new contract with a release clause of £28m. A quality loan signing, perhaps? Sandro Ramirez: Striker – Click the arrow for more – Mauricio Pochettino was spotted watching Barcelona’s B team in action against Numancia, so talkSPORT looks at some of the quality on offer from the young Catalan side beginning with Ramirez. The 19-year-old scored for Barcelona in the 1-1 draw, controlling with his left foot and rifling the ball into the goal with his right. This season he has scored twice in La Liga and once in the Champions League, against Ajax in a 3-1 win. 4last_img read more

ANGER AS ANOTHER GIRL TAUNTED TO DEATH BY TROLLS ON ASK.FM

first_imgPEOPLE in Britain have reacted with anger to the suicide of a teenage girl who was bullied on the website ask.fm – the same site where Donegal girl Erin Gallagher was harassed.Leitrim schoolgirl Ciara Pugsley also took her own life after being harassed on the site, which is often accessed via Facebook.Lancashire girl Hannah Smith took her own life last Friday. Her father David urged parents to stop their children using the Latvian-based Ask.fm.  Mr Smith called for its creators to be prosecuted for manslaughter.Less than a fortnight before her body was found early last Friday, Hannah begged her tormentors – who can hide behind a cloak of anonymity on the site – to stop the abuse.In another post, she told one bully who had branded her an “ugly f*****” how she had already attempted suicide and added: “Getting things like this from people that like to hide behind there (sic) computer screen doesn’t make me feel any better.”Her dad said at the weekend: “I have just seen the abuse my daughter got from people on ask fm and the fact that these people can be anonymous is wrong. The person that created this website should be done for manslaughter.” In her final days, Hannah had been branded a “cow” and “fat sl**”.On July 20, a troll wrote, “* ugly f*** go die evry1 wuld be happy”, prompting Hannah to reply: “yes, i may be ugly, but you obviously have an ugly personality to tell people to ‘go die’!”Other hurtful posts urged her to “do us all a favour * kill ur self” and “go comit suicide”. Hannah replied: “wouldn’t you fell bad if I did ey?” Just the day before she apparently killed herself, Hannah posted a picture message on Facebook which read: “You think you want to die, but in reality you just want to be saved.” ANGER AS ANOTHER GIRL TAUNTED TO DEATH BY TROLLS ON ASK.FM was last modified: August 6th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BallybofeydonegalErin GallagherHANNAH SMITHtrollslast_img read more
