first_img7 10 9 $362,201 $534,505 21% $141,341 4 29% 18% 5 33% HARD NOT TO LOVE FOLLOWING FOOTSTEPS OF ZENYATTACould it be . . . should it be . . . would it be . . . sanctimonious to mention Hard Not to Love in the same breath as . . . Zenyatta?John Shirreffs hasn’t quite developed that state of mind yet for his one-eyed wonder filly, but the dazzling daughter of Hard Spun did conjure up thoughts of Zenyatta after she won her fifth race from six starts, the Grade II Santa Monica Stakes Saturday by 3 ½ lengths under regular rider Mike Smith.Of course, she has miles to go before achieving the legendary status of Zenyatta, winner of 19 of 20 starts under Shirreffs’ trusted tutelage, the only female to defeat males in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (2009) and Horse of the Year in 2010.“She looked good this morning,” Shirreffs said of Hard Not to Love, who lost her left eye as a youngster when kicked by another horse and is an ongoing work in progress as she continues to overcome her disability and prepares for the Grade I Beholder Mile on March 14.“I think people are starting to like her,” Shirreffs allowed when asked about any similarities to Zenyatta this early on. “I think we can safely say that. She has a lot of talent, obviously. You can’t achieve what she has without the talent.“She’s fun to watch and it’s enjoyable seeing how much everyone appreciates her. Mike Smith has a special relationship with her, as does her exercise rider, Amy Vasko, and her groom, Martin Lopez.”And her growing legion of fans.“They all have their special connections,” Shirreffs said, “and that’s really enjoyable.”And although Hard Not to Love “enjoys” half the vision of most Thoroughbreds, safe to say she has twice the talent.RISPOLI HAS RECIPE FOR SUCCESS AT SANTA ANITAWith three victories Saturday, newcomer Umberto Rispoli climbed to fourth place in Santa Anita’s Winter Meet jockey standings with 19, seven behind leader Joel Rosario. Both riders are represented by world-class agent Ron Anderson.Rispoli, a two-time champion in his native Italy, won the third race on Princeofthenorth ($7.60) for trainer Hector Palma; the seventh on Coast of Roan ($13.60) for Doug O’Neill; and the ninth aboard Jurgen ($7.80) for John Sadler. All the races were on turf.“He’s certainly exceeded what I thought he could at this point, especially with the limited number of horses and opportunities,” Anderson said, quickly adding, “Umberto is an exceptional rider and an exceptional horseman, and he works hard.“That’s a good recipe for success around here right now.”MISS HOT LEGS SET FOR WISHING WELL, SIMON SAYSSimon Callaghan sends out consistent Miss Hot Legs in Monday’s Presidents’ Day feature, the $70,000 Wishing Well Stakes for fillies and mares at 5 ½ furlongs on turf.The four-year-old daughter of Verrazano owned by Qatar Racing Limited and TNIP, LLC has never failed to earn a check in eight career starts, finishing in the money seven times and earning $132,080.“It’s a short field and we have a good post,” the trainer said, “and she’s training well off a layoff. I think she’ll run well.”Miss Hot Legs has not raced since last Nov. 10 when she won a five-furlong turf sprint at Del Mar by a length and a quarter under Abel Cedillo, who retains the mount Monday.As to his star of the stable, multiple Grade I-winning filly Bellafina, currently at Los Alamitos, Callaghan said, “We gave her a little break and she’ll start back breezing this week. We’re targeting the Madison (Grade I, $300,000, seven furlongs at Keeneland March 18).”The Wishing Well, race seven of eight with a 12:30 p.m. first post time: An Eddie Surprise, Joel Rosario, 7-2; Apache Princess, Flavien Prat, 2-1; Kentan Road, Jorge Velez, 9-5; Tonahutu, Umberto Rispoli, 8-1; and Miss Hot Legs, Abel Cedillo, 3-1.There is special holiday racing tomorrow, which also is Dollar Day, with beer and soda on sale for a buck and hot dogs for $2. First post time is 12:30 p.m.FINISH LINES: Streaking winner of his last five races including the Donald Valpredo California Cup Sprint on Jan. 18, Fashionably Fast worked six furlongs this morning in 1:13 as trainer Dean Pederson prepares the son of Lucky Pulpit for the $100,000 Tiznow Stakes on March 1. Triple Crown hopeful American Theorem breezed four furlongs in 49.80 for George Papaprodromou. Tiago Pereira worked both horses . . .

In a dramatic come-from-behind victory reminiscent of Eddie Delahoussaye in his prime, Mike Smith guided French Getaway to a  1 ½-length triumph over six rivals in Saturday’s first race at 1 1/8 miles on turf. Last of seven while six wide turning into the stretch, French Getaway accelerated after steadying briefly when in tight leaving the first turn, then rolled by the field and was under a hold in the final strides.  A five-year-old gelded son of Giant’s Causeway trained by Bob Hess Jr. for owner Schroeder Farms, LLC, the winner paid $6.40 as the favorite . . . Drayden Van Dyke has been suspended five days (Feb. 22, 23, 28, 29 and March 1) for causing interference on Hot Magistrate in Friday’s eighth race, resulting in a disqualification of his mount from seventh to ninth . . .

Rep. Cooper, Liberty Party Part Ways

by ,

first_imgLiberty Party Chairman, Cllr. J. Fonati Koffa, has accepted the resignation of Margibi County Representative Roland Opee Cooper from the party, following the fighting incident that occurred between him (Cooper) and another lawmaker in chambers at the House of Representatives last week.Rep. Cooper’s resignation is in compliance with an earlier call upon him by the party executives to resign or be expelled.Opee Cooper is expected to be suspended from the Legislature for at least three months without pay for attempting to molest Speaker J. Alex Tyler. Rep. Cooper is also accused of having assaulted Bong County District # 6 Representative Adam Bill Corneh, who tried to stop him.It all started last Thursday, while Speaker Tyler was announcing the new chairs, co-chairs and members of the statutory and standing committees.  Rep. Cooper allegedly attempted to bully the Speaker, but slapped Rep. Corneh in the face, when he (Corneh) obstructed him.The physical attack claimed the immediate attention of fellow Representatives as Corneh, who according to some of his peers, suffers from high blood pressure, fell back into his seat and his colleagues took papers to fan him as he lay helpless.Speaking yesterday at the Liberty Party Headquarters in Monrovia, Chairman Koffa noted that Representative Cooper never wanted to follow the due process of the party by going through suspension or other factors but sent in his resignation letter to the party.“We wish him well in all that he does.  The party did not carry on any investigation of the matter but we have accepted this letter with our hearts.”The Liberty Party chairman said the Party accepts the resignation of their former lawmaker of Margibi County Roland Opee Cooper, saying that they make no opinion on his cause of resigning.According to the chairman, the party’s regulation states that anyone caught with misconduct should be brought to the party for suspension by the chairman and be turned over to the Executive Committee.Cllr. Koffa described the resignation of Representative Cooper as a great loss to the party but added, “Equally so, the party will not endorse any misconduct from any of its members. I cannot protect anyone who misbehaves all in the name of protecting a seat,” Chairman Koffa said.He asserted that the party will not go further to investigate Cooper’s case of misconduct at the Legislature because he has already resigned and is no more a member of the opposition Liberty Party.“The party expects all its members to conduct themselves orderly and in a good manner that represents the party,” he said.Meanwhile, Cllr. Koffa also disclosed that for the upcoming 2017 Presidential elections the Liberty Party needs a standard bearer that will come from the party. The party will not recruit any new member that will not have the party at heart but just wishes to come and gain political power.He noted that Cllr. Charles W. Brumskine retired as the political leader of the opposition Liberty Party; adding: “He did not resign from politics or Liberty Party.”“Bruskine has the right to run because he is a political animal in the Liberty Party.”Chairman Koffa at the same time disclosed that preparations are underway for the party to launch what he called “Liberty Hour.”He said the Liberty Hour will once a month provide a case study on how the party will continue its normal political activities.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Miller Catakaw speaks with Imam Mustapha Blade of the 17th Street Mosque in MonroviaAlvin WorziMontserrado County District #9 Aspirant Miller Catakaw has distributed rice and cash totaling LD$60,000 to six Mosques in Monrovia. Each received items valued at LD10,000.It was a scene of happiness on Wednesday when Atty. Catakaw made the distribution.The donation comes four (4) days to the end Ramadan, the month-long fasting and prayer of Muslims throughout the world including Liberia.Mosques that benefited from the gift are those in Gbangay, Wroto and Vai towns, Lakpazee, New Matadi, Fiamah, 17th Street and Old Matadi, respectively.In separate presentations, Catakaw lauded the Muslims for denying themselves food and sleep to pray for Liberia as the country approaches the October elections.“We are at a critical junction in our country and prayer is the only thing that can take us through as a country and people,” Atty. Catakaw told the Muslims.He said with the news about the National Elections Commission (NEC) Chairman Jerome Korkoya’s dual citizenship, which is worrisome, it is only God’s intervention that can keep the country stable.He added that “It is time for Liberians to hold together in prayers during these elections.”In response, Imam Mustapha Blade of the 17th Street Mosque praised Catakaw for identifying with Muslims at this period.Imam Blade said Islam is a religion of peace and they have been praying for a peaceful and a violent free election since the beginning of this year’s fasting.Imam Blade asked for Allah’s blessings and direction upon Catakaw, as he contests for the post of representative during the upcoming presidential and legislative elections.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

by ,

first_img– security guard choppedFour armed bandits, carrying guns and a cutlass, broke into a teacher’s Canje, Berbice home and robbed her of a quantity of cash and other valuables but not before severely beating her.The incident occurred some time around 01:30h on Tuesday and during the attack, a security guard was also chopped.Guyana Times understands that after attacking the 45-year-old guard, ClaudiusThe Canjie house which armed bandits invaded Tuesday morningAlert, the four men entered the house at Lot 22 Bhudhan’s Housing Scheme, Caracas, West Canje, by breaking open the back door.They then confronted the 43-year-old teacher, Easter Reid, who was home alone at the time.According to the traumatised woman, she was held at gunpoint as the bandits demanded money.“They said where you have the gold and money? I said ‘I don’t have’ and one said: ‘strip, lemme see, strip’ and I started to pull down my dress,” she related.However, one of the other bandits stopped his accomplice. “Don’t bother let the lady strip,” she recalled him saying.The English and Food Preparation teacher told this newspaper that all of the men were masked. She noted that while she was still to properly assess her losses, the bandits made off with jewellery and several digital boxes.“I don’t really wear jewellery, but they took my wedding band, they took another ring I had for my husband, the DVR from security cameras, an E-Networks control box and another box I had for movies,” Reid explained.The woman further recounted that while the one bandit was attempting to sexually assault her, she could hear the bandits beating the guard, adding that she heard “chopping sounds”.She noted that the Police took about 45 minutes to arrive after the initial call.Speaking with this publication, neighbours indicated that when the Police were a few houses away on their way to the scene, the men left the home.

Patriots, Stars abandoned due to seepage onto pitch

by ,

first_imgHero Caribbean Premier League 2018…After a series of inspections following heavy rain at Warner Park, Umpires Langton Rusere, Gregory Brathwaite and Nigel Dugid and Match Referee Denavon Hayles have decided because of seepage onto the wicket it’s not fit for play and there is no indication that there would have been an improvement before the latest allowable start time.St Lucia Stars Captain Kieron Pollard (left) and Patriots Captain Chris Gayle with match officials on the pitch at Warner Park when the game was officially called offAs a result match 21 of the Hero Caribbean Premier League between St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and St Lucia Stars on Thursday night was called off and both teams have shared the points.The encounter was heating up to be a firecracker since both teams would have been pressing for maximum points to advance to the play-offs. The result meant that the Stars now has five points and move to fifth on the table, one point and place ahead of Barbados Tridents.However, with just one match remaining at the preliminary stage of the tournament they are all but eliminated since the Patriots have moved to seven points in fourth place and still has the option of adding more points. Only the top four teams will advance to the play-offs.The Tridents who get into action tonight still have four matches in hand but could also face elimination if they don’t get back to their winning ways soon.The next match at Warner Park is on Saturday when the Patriots host second placed Trinbago Knight Riders who are on eight points and there is hope that the weather will improve enough to allow a full game.It is the first washed out game for the season and history has repeated itself since there was a similar result last year when the rain came and ended the game abruptly after 8.1 overs of the Stars innings.It is the second home match for the Patriots who end their preliminary campaign after also hosting the Tallawahs and Tridents.last_img read more

April 2015 exceeds average monthly precipitation total

by ,

first_imgAll those totals now exceed the April averages, which Environment Canada lists as 12.7 centimetres of snow, 9.7 millimetres of rain and 20 millimetres of precipitation.More significantly, what’s occurred in the past two days has dramatically changed the monthly precipitation narrative, which had been focussed on a precipitation total of only 0.2 millimetres in the first 15 days.This is now the eighth consecutive month of above average precipitation in this area, and the second year in a row that the April total has more than doubled the monthly average of 20 millimetres.It should also be noted that the aforementioned total does not include what has been, or what will be posted today, and it will now only take 3.4 millimetres to match last year’s total of 45.Advertisement Ten centimetres on Wednesday put to rest an April 22 record of 8.1 centimetres established only five years earlier in 2010.However, the rainfall and precipitation records were not threatened on Wednesday as the totals were posted at 8.6 and 18.6 millimetres, respectively.Both record totals were set in 1994 at 28.9 millimetres, and they are also the one day records for the entire month of April.- Advertisement -More importantly, this week’s shift in the weather has dramatically altered the precipitation total for the month.There were no daily records set yesterday but 6.3 centimetres of snow and 3.2 millimetres of rain combined for another 9.5 millimetres of precipitation.That lifted the month-to-date totals at the airport station to 17.9 centimetres of snow, 23.7 millimetres of rain and 41.6 millimetres of precipitation.Advertisementlast_img read more

GAA NEWS: CONNOR GORMLEY THE HERO FOR MILFORD MINORS

by ,

first_img*Minor Championship Final*CLG BnaG 2-7 Kilcar 1-9You need certain ingredients to win a Championship, hard work, commitment, work rate, discipline, preparation… and balls, and Connor Gormley showed his were made of cast iron on Saturday as he landed a beauty of a free with the last kick of the game to win the Div 2 Championship Final for Na Galloglaigh. It wasn’t the best of performances by the lads and it looked early on as if nerves had got the better of them for a while against a young yet tenacious and tough tackling Kilcar side. Kilcar got off to the better start and after 7 minutes were 0-2 to no score up before a minute later Na Galloglaigh got a bit of luck to settle the nerves. An effort from Shay Durning landed in the box and Shane McNamee got there just ahead of the keeper to flick home and put Na Galloglaigh in front. A free from Donegal Minor Conor Doherty brought Kilcar level before Gavin Grier put BnaGs noses in front again at the end of the first quarter. Doherty scored two more points from Kilcar before Ryan Mcmahon scored a superb point from wide on the right and it looked like the sides would be going in at half time all square. But instead in injury time Na Galloglaigh got another bit of luck when an high effort from Gormley caused the Kilcar keeper trouble and the umpires deemed the ball had gone over the line to leave the blues in a good half time position 2-2 to 0-5. The second half was a very low scoring affair for the first 20 minutes or so with Kilcar and top but not troubling the scoreboard. It was substitute Kane Barrett who got the first score of the half when he popped over a free after 39 minutes but Kilcar brought themselves right back into the game with a goal after 42. This left just a point between the sides and with 6 minutes left Kilcar went a point ahead to set up for a brilliant finale. Gavin Grier, playing with one leg after receiving a dead calf, showed immense character to struggle on and score a great equaliser with 5 minutes left, and with 3 left they got their noses in front again thanks to another Barrett free. But yet again Kilcar came back, and levelled the game up once again in the 58th minute, and as the game entered injury time the Kilcar men got themselves in front once more and it looked like lights out for Na Galloglaigh. With 2 minutes injury time announced it didn’t look like the boys were going to have time to get another score. But a great block in their full back line fell to another substitue, Ryan Toye, who set Adam Serrinha off on a great run down the field. Adam could have had a couple of frees during this run but the referee played advantage and Adam found Martin Doyle in space and he showed great composure to slot the ball over the bar with only seconds left. The game looked certain to go to extra time before Patrick Ferry won a free just inside the Kilcar 45. Injury time was up at this stage and it was clear to everyone that this would be the final kick of the game. The responsibility fell to Gormley and he made the 40 yard free from the left look easy as he put the ball over the black spot with the sweetest of strikes, with a huge cheer from the large support indicating the kick was good before the ball had even settled in the ballstop nets. Captain Kieran Sheridan ascended the steps at MacCumhaill Park to collect the 3rd trophy for this team which played in four finals this year. It was great for all the boys as the they have all displayed the attributes highlighted in the opening sentence all year, since the very first team meeting in Ray in the second week of January, until Saturday. They have been a pleasure to deal with for Aodh McCormack and his team who also deserve congratulations on this achievement. This is a talented bunch of players and it his hoped they stick together now and progress into Senior football as they have shown they have the ability and attitude to do so, and have been a credit to themselves and their families all year.

The game had everything, played at a high intensity, was very physical and both teams could have had several girls sin binned. Playing with the aid of the breeze Na Galloglaigh girls got out of the blocks really quickly and raced into an early lead but conceded two goals which left them leading by five points at half time, but they also suffered a blow on the stroke of half time with their captain sin binned. The second half was a real battle and they fought for every single ball. Na Galloglaigh led by four points with five minutes left but conceded a sloppy goal and ended up going a point down in injury time but showed great character to work the ball the full length of the field for a brilliant equalising point. Our Ladies now go on to play Carndonagh next week.*Senior Ladies All Ireland Club 7s*Good luck to our Senior Ladies who travel to Dublin for the All Ireland Ladies 7s this weekend.
