But if things go well, there will be opportunities down the road.”They could include the Gold Cup, a “Win and You’re In” Challenge Race that gives the winner a fees-paid berth in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Keeneland on Oct. 31; the $1 million Pacific Classic at Del Mar this summer; and the Breeders’ Cup Classic.“The plan is to run in the Gold Cup if all goes well,” Guillot said. “Then we would look at the Pacific Classic at Del Mar and beyond that the Breeders’ Cup, but everything would have to go right, of course.”Moreno, a 5-year-old gelded son of 2004 Horse of the Year Ghostzapper, is approaching $3 million in career earnings, thanks mainly to his two-length win in the $1.5 million Charles Town Classic on April 18.While Moreno is winless at Santa Anita in eight starts, twice well beaten in the Breeders’ Cup Classic, in 2013 and again last year, when he was “slammed and steadied” at the start, the speedy bay has four seconds at The Great Race Place.He captured the Grade I Whitney at Saratoga last August.The field for The Californian, race No. 8: Big Cazanova, Tyler Baze, 8-1; Bailoutbobby, Drayden Van Dyke, 30-1; Hard Aces, Victor Espinoza, 6-1; Lideris, Joe Talamo, 30-1; Blue Tone, Kent Desormeaux, 8-1; Moreno, Cornelio Velasquez, 8-5; Catch a Flight, Gary Stevens, 9-5; and Sammy Mandeville, Rafael Bejarano, 5-1.You Know I Know was scratched.

She led the seven-horse field throughout, winning the 1 1/16-mile race by two lengths.Next up: Saturday’s Grade I American Oaks at 1 1/4 miles on turf at Santa Anita.“We decided we wanted to give her a try on the grass because she’s out of a Dynaformer mare and had a hunch that she would like it,” Pletcher said by phone from New York where he is preparing three horses for possible starts in the June 6 Belmont Stakes.“It was the first time we put her on grass. We didn’t even have the opportunity to breeze her on it before that. She took to it well and once she ran well, we decided to take a look at the American Oaks. She’s trained well, travel arrangements worked out, and (former Pletcher assistant) Mike McCarthy will look over her while she’s at Santa Anita.”Feathered, a bay daughter of 1998 Santa Anita Derby winner Indian Charlie out of the Dynaformer mare Receipt, is owned by Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners. She has a 2-2-1 record from eight starts with earnings of $400,974 and will be ridden by Santa Anita’s leading rider, Tyler Baze.McCarthy said Feathered arrived Wednesday night and “couldn’t be doing any better.”Pletcher, meanwhile, hopes to derail American Pharoah’s Triple Crown express in the Belmont with perhaps Carpe Diem, Materiality and/or Madefromlucky. “We have three currently in training that are possibilities,” said Pletcher, the nation’s leader in purse earnings this year with just over $9.2 million, some $1.7 million more than runner-up Bob Baffert.“Materiality unfortunately missed the break in the Derby. He got way back, then closed very well and has trained well since then,” Pletcher said.Carpe Diem finished 10th in the Kentucky Derby, while Materiality was an eventful sixth, closing from 17th at the mile marker in the 1 1/4-mile classic.The Equibase chart reads: “MATERIALITY hesitated at the break to be away last, dropped well off the early pace, lost ground four wide down the backstretch, remained four wide to the head of the lane, angled to the inside of a tiring Mr. Z in upper stretch, flashed some interest gaining to mid stretch but failed to seriously sustain.”The field for the American Oaks, which goes as the fifth of nine races: Spanish Queen, Brice Blanc, 2-1; Dating Lady Luck, Corey Nakatani, 12-1; Feathered, Tyler Baze, 7-2; Sharla Rae, Drayden Van Dyke, 6-1; Mrs McDougal, Gary Stevens, 5-2;and Consumer Credit, Flavien Prat, 3-1.Strict Compliance was scratched.

  • Clarke expects high class meet

    first_imgCalabar High’s head coach, Michael Clarke, is promising a high-class performance at home when the school hosts the inaugural McKenley-Wint Invitational Track and Field meet tomorrow.”We are really excited about the meet tomorrow and the guys are upbeat after training on the new synthetic track last Tuesday. They really want to do something special,” said Clarke.Clarke, who has coached three high school teams to top Boys’ Championships, is very confident that with the new track, it will be even harder for any team to wrest the title from them this year.”Training on the school campus is a great plus for the team and the institution as the boys will not have to travel away from school, and also, it has cut down on transportation costs as this money can go somewhere else in the programme,” he said. “It will be a family affair as we expect many past students to be present,” he continued.Calabar is the first local high school to have its own synthetic running track. The opening and dedication of the new track will take place today at a ceremony starting at 1 p.m. Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller will be the main speaker at today’s function.last_img read more

  • Estwick pulls off big Contender upset win

    first_imgGuyanese boxer Charwin Estwick pulled off the biggest upset of the Wray and Nephew 2016 Contender series on Wednesday night when he defeated American Daniel Powell by unanimous decision at the Chinese Benevolent Association auditorium.Judges Laurence Neufville and Lindell Allen scored the five round fight 49-46, while judge Eion Jardine had it 48-47.Because of his 11-0 record, which included nine victories by knockout or technical knockout, Powell was seen as the favourite to win, as Estwick went in with a record of only two previous fights, both of which he lost.At the weigh-in on Wednesday, however, Estwick, who had to take off weight to get to the 147-pound welterweight limit, declared, “I am not intimidated by his record because records do not win fights. Fighters do, and I am going to win this fight.”These words proved prophetic, as Estwick went on the attack from the opening bell, and his awkward southpaw stance clearly confused Powell, who never really got going. He was the better technical fighter, but it was Estwick who did the scoring, and the judges awarded him for his efforts.Estwick was busy right from the start, and threw a lot of punches to both the head and body. His work rate was impressive, but the cool, orthodox Powell gave the impression that it was just a matter of time before he took over. His jabs looked good and he scored primarily to the head, but it was Estwick who won the round.SUPERIOR WORKPowell was decisive at the start of the second round, and a good right hook to the head gave a glimpse of what he was capable of. He landed more punches in this round and took it comfortably, but Estwick came out blazing in the third round, and his superior work rate and quick flurries gave him the edge.Estwick also had a good fourth round, but in the fifth, he started to fade as Powell put pressure on him. Estwick suddenly seemed vulnerable, and it was at this stage of the fight that his defensive side was seen, and he was able to weather the storm to the final bell.With all the quarter-finalists in place, seeding of the top four boxers took place. American boxer Demarcus Coley was seeded at No. 1 and Caribbean boxers Tsetsi Davis, Richard Holmes and Ramel Lewis were seeded second, third and fourth, respectively. They then drew their opponents, and Lewis will meet Michael Gardener in the first quarter-final bout next week.In the two amateur bouts on the card, Sherine Williams from the St Thomas Boxing Club scored a technical knockout (injury) second-round victory over Nyoka Hewitt from the Stanley Couch gym. Hewitt injured her right knee and had to be assisted from the ring for medical attention. In the second bout, Fabian Tucker from Sugar Olympic gym scored a unanimous decision over Nico Yeyo from Stanley Couch gym.last_img read more

It just carried over there at the end,” said Al Horford, who had 14 points and nine rebounds. “We thought we had it. It just got away from us.”Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown added 16 points apiece for the Celtics, who attempted a season-high 50 3-pointers. Rather than challenge Davis and Cousins inside, the Celtics lived outside and it cost them in overtime when they went just 1 for 4.“I thought we did a great job defensively in the first half trying to contain Kyrie. You know that that’s not going to last the entire game,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. “We came up with stops when we absolutely had to and then we were able to make some plays down the stretch that were the difference in the game.”Horford’s 3-pointer early in OT gave Boston a 107-106 lead and Boston went up 113-110. A jumper by Cousins cut the lead to 113-112, then Holiday added two more field goals and Boston couldn’t catch up from there.“They kept worrying about me so much diving to the rim, Jrue was able to hit them little midrange jumpers. He kind of took over that overtime for us and got some separation for us,” Davis said.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina 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 Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacsoncenter_img LATEST STORIES OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis slams a dunk during the first quarter of an NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston, Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2018.

  • Teacher power scores at voters’ box

    first_imgLaura Williams, president of the Teachers Association of Norwalk-La Mirada, said the election results can only be helpful to Norwalk-La Mirada teachers. “It means that we have a voice on decisions,” she said. “I think we’re feeling pretty good right now.” Norwalk-La Mirada incumbent Pauline Deal, who also was endorsed by the teachers and won, said even with five teachers on the seven-member board, little will change. “It hasn’t affected anything with four teachers and three community members,” Deal said. “Lorraine seems really level-headed and has a good grasp of budgets. I don’t know what would change.” Other teacher-endorsed candidates also said teachers won’t have any more power. “I am not beholden to anybody. If anybody looks at my record, they know that’s not the case,” said Schneider, formerly on the South Whittier School Board for 18 years. The associations helped their candidates by giving money and providing manpower for things such as going door-to-door and phone banking. The latter was especially evident in the Norwalk-La Mirada race, said Deal, an association-endorsed candidate. “Clearly the union endorsement had to have helped,” Deal said. “In the past, we had union endorsements, but they didn’t do anything,” she said. “This time, they did three mailings, phone banking, precinct walking, and an automated phone call.” Postcards supporting Deal, Neal and incumbent Karen Morrison also were mailed. In other races, the teachers gave $3,000 to Elbling in the East Whittier School District race, $4,000 to Schneider and incumbent Ralph Pacheco in the Whittier Union High School District race, and $7,500 to Marcella Calderon and David Vela in the Montebello Unified School District race. All of these candidates won. Some said they didn’t just win because of the endorsements. “You have to have substance to your campaign,” Elbling said. “You have to have a message and demonstrate you’re knowledgeable.” mike.sprague@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It might not be the only thing voters look at, but it’s one important aspect of voters making up their mind.” Teacher-endorsed candidates won eight of nine seats in the East Whittier City, Montebello Unified, Norwalk-La Mirada Unified and Whittier Union High school districts. The lone loss came in the East Whittier City School District where Angel Gallardo, a career and technical education coordinator at Pomona Unified School District, placed fourth. While some might think the victories give the teachers too much power, Newcomer said he doesn’t think it’s much of a change or a big deal. “You will have board members who understand what’s going on in the classroom,” he said. “I don’t see evidence of that authority being abused, especially locally.” Whittier-area teacher associations appeared to be the big victors in Tuesday’s school board elections, knocking off an incumbent and picking up two open seats. Richard LeGaspi, who was seeking a third term on the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District board, lost to teacher Lorraine Neal. Teacher-endorsed candidates Dimitri Elbling and Tim Schneider, respectively, also won open seats on the East Whittier City and Whittier Union High school district boards. “I think it was a good day (for teachers),” said Whittier Mayor Owen Newcomer, also a professor of political science at Rio Hondo College. last_img read more

  • TD McCONALOGUE: LORETO MILFORD DESERVED ITS SPECIAL DAY

    first_imgFianna Fáil Spokesperson on Children Charlie McConalogue has congratulated to Loreto Community College Milford on their success in the inaugural Smart Class competition.The competition was initiated by Intel Ireland, Steljes and the Educational Company of Ireland last year.  Loreto Milford scooped the top prize after Leaving Cert student Shaun Sweeney designed and presented an e-book that astonished the judges.The €150,000 prize will see every incoming first year this September awarded laptops with the entire Junior Certificate course built into them. In addition to this, the school will be upgraded with high speed broadband, extensive teacher training and continued assessment of how the students are adapting to the new system. Donegal North East Deputy Charlie McConalogue who attended the events, paid tribute to the winning student.“Shaun Sweeney’s hard work, dedication and talent is truly admirable. He has secured a world-class learning environment for the incoming first years and he should be extremely proud of himself.“I am delighted for Loreto College and all of its staff and students. They will be the first of a new generation. There will be huge interest in how the students adapt to learning directly from laptops and it could even signal the beginning of sweeping changes throughout our education system.  It is a great coup for Donegal that one of our schools will be at the centre of these changes,” said Deputy McConalogue.The Donegal North East TD also spoke of his disappointment that the protests at the school diverted attention from its great achievement. “The school and the students deserved their day in the sun.  It is important that the school’s fantastic achievement is not overshadowed by the coverage of the protest that took place outside the school,” he said.  TD McCONALOGUE: LORETO MILFORD DESERVED ITS SPECIAL DAY was last modified: May 22nd, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:TD McCONALOGUE: LORETO MILFORD DESERVED ITS SPECIAL DAYlast_img read more

In their first two games, they have defeated Lango and Sebei to assume the top spot in the group.Buganda have maximu points from their first two games.Despite both victories being by a single goal margin, the bottom line is that they have maximum points and their title defence is clearly going to plan so far.Elsewhere in Group B, Lango who sit second on the standings will be at home to Sebei at the UCT Stadium in Lira.In Group C, last year’s losing finalist West Nile will be hoping to make it two victories on the trot.After losing 2-1 at home to Bunyoro in their opening game, West Nile bounced back on Match-Day two, defeating Karamoja 1-0.With the StarTimes Uganda Premier League now concluded, Umar Abdallah’s side are expected to have a full-strength squad for Sunday’s game and anything short of victory will not be welcome.However, Acholi will be no pushovers as they currently top the standings with a perfect six points.The other Group C game will see Bunyoro host Karamoja at the Hoima Booma Grounds on the same day.In Group D, Bukedia will also be seeking to move onto 9 points in their opening three games when they host Bugisu at the Booma Grounds in Butaleja.Charles Namakola have been strolling in the first two games, beating both Teso 3-1 and Kigezi 2-1.The other Group D game pits the bottom two as 3rd placed Teso host Kigezi at Kongunga Primary School.Results from the first two FUFA Drum Match-DaysFUFA Drum Match-Day One results-Buganda 1-0 Lango  -Bukedi 3-1 Teso-Ankole 3-2 Sebei-Acholi 2-0 Karamoja-West Nile 1-2 Bunyoro-Bugisu 1-0 Kigezi-Kampala 0-1 Rwenzori-Busoga 1-1 TooroFUFA Drum Match-Day Two results  -Tooro 2-0 Kampala-Sebei 1-2 Buganda-Lango 3-0 Ankole-Bunyoro 1-2 Acholi  -Rwenzori 0-0 Busoga-Karamoja 0-1 West Nile-Teso 0-0 Bugisu -Kigezi 1-2 BukediComments Tags: Acholialex isabiryeAnkoleBugandaBugisuBukediaBunyoroBusogaFUFA DRUMFUFA Drum 2019KampalakigeziKramojaLangoRwenzoriSebeiTesoToorowasswa bbosaWest Nilelast_img read more
