ENGLISH-BRED PRIZE EXHIBIT ROLLS LATE TO TAKE GRADE III, $100,000 MEGAHERTZ STAKES BY 1 ¼ LENGTHS UNDER SMITH; TRAINED BY CASSIDY, SHE GETS MILE ON ‘GOOD’ TURF IN 1:35.56

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 16, 2017)–A restrained fifth three furlongs from home, English-bred Prize Exhibit was called upon a furlong out and she responded with a rousing 1 ¼ length victory under Mike Smith in Monday’s Grade III, $100,000 Megahertz Stakes.  Contested over Santa Anita’s turf course which was listed as “good,” Prize Exhibit got a flat mile in 1:35.56.With longshot Poster Girl and eventual third place finisher Into The Mystic running one-two to the far turn, Smith was on the brakes while in close attendance between horses.“I was able to get her to relax early and she can be on the rank side,” said Smith, who has ridden the 5-year-old mare in her last two starts.  “Sometimes, going into a race where there’s not much pace, everyone thinks the same thing and it worked out that way today.  We took advantage…I think she can go a mile, a mile and a sixteenth…As long as you get her covered up and keep her turned off.”Owned by Deron Pearson’s D P Racing, Prize Exhibit was off at 3-1 in a field of seven older fillies and mares and paid $8.80, $4.40 and $3.40.Winless in 10 starts since taking the Grade II Monrovia Stakes here a year ago, Prize Exhibit now has seven wins from 31 lifetime starts and with the winner’s share of $60,000, she increased her earnings to $637,045.“We had her in the hill race (Grade III Las Cienegas at 6 ½ furlongs, turf, on Jan. 7) last week, but it came off the grass due to weather,” said Cassidy.  “She’s trained so well into this race…She’s a tough girl.  She can be tricky.  We’ve had to do a lot of different things with her and she’s just been happier lately.  We’ve been working her from the gate and she seems to like that.  She’s somethin’ else.”Irish-bred Jeremy’s Legacy, who was close-up while lapped on Into The Mystic around the far turn, ran well but couldn’t hold off the winner, finishing second, a head in front of “Into.”  Ridden by Mario Gutierrez, Jeremy’s Legacy was off at 10-1 and paid $9.00 and $4.60.The second choice in the wagering with Flavien Prat up at 3-1, Irish-bred Into The Mystic paid $3.40 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.72, 47.93, 1:12.29 and 1:24.02.Racing resumes on Friday at Santa Anita, with first post time for an eight-race card at 1 p.m.last_img read more

Trio arraigned for seawall cocaine bust

first_imgThe three men who were arrested on Wednesday with a quantity of cocaine by members of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU), made their appearance on Friday at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.They were slapped with several charges including possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking and illegal possession of guns and ammunition.The three accused – Aundre Singh of Diamond Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara; Clifford Gouveia of Little Abary, East Coast Demerara; and Oneil Charran of Sandy Babb Street, Kitty, Georgetown; all pleaded not guilty to the charges.The court heard that on October, 3 while in the vicinity of the Rupert Craig Highway, the three men had 5.582 kilograms of cocaine in their possession for the purpose of trafficking.Another charge was read which stated that on the said day, CANU ranks carried out a search at Singh’s Diamond, East Bank Demerara house where an additional 6.6 grams of the cocaine were unearthed.Other charges stated that on the day in question, the men also had in their possession two unlicensed firearms – a pistol and a .32 Taurus revolver with several matching rounds.Attorney Leonard DaSilva who represented Charran in an application for bail told the court that the drugs along with the unlicensed firearms were not found on his client but rather in a vehicle that was accessible to several others during the course of the day.However, Attorney Latchmie Rahamat represented Singh and would have also made an application for bail on the premise that the drugs and other items were not found in the possession of her client. Gouveia was unrepresented.State Prosecutor Konyo Sandiford objected to bail being granted to the men while informing the court that the men have been under CANU surveillance for a long time.Further, she noted that the men had provided the investigators with written statements after they were busted on Wednesday.Moreover, the prosecution’s submission was upheld by Magistrate Latchman and the men were all remanded to prison until October 17.On Wednesday last, CANU agents intercepted two cars on the Rupert Craig Highway in the vicinity of Kitty seawall with a quantity of cocaine, guns and ammunition.

At the time, a box was being transferred from one car to the other.Ranks of CANU swopped down on the operation and intercepted a box containing five suspected bricks of cocaine and beauty soaps. Upon weighing the cocaine, it amounted to 5.582 kilograms.However, the home of Singh was subsequently searched and a further 6.6 grams of suspected cocaine, along with US$5000 and GY$3 million were found.In addition, one Taurus Revolver with matching ammunition and one Pistol with matching ammunition were discovered in another section of Singh’s house.last_img read more

Country focuses on Village’s diet

first_imgThe exciting four month phase of shooting is over. Not even those who were filmed know exactly how the show will depict them, but what they do know, is that the country now sits and watches to see whether they succeed or fail.Advertisement According to Taylor’s Mayor, Fred Jarvis, the first episode was shown at the town community centre so that residents could watch together. Mayor Jarvis admitted that the town showed some nervousness prior to the airing, as to how the CBC would portray the town to the nation. Thankfully, the Mayor says Taylor residents were pleased with the portrayal of the town and its people during the first episode.Although Jarvis claims he is still unsure of resident’s reactions in future episodes, as weight problems are a very touchy subject. He says the subject of weight problems has the potential to become very personal to the participants who are being followed and documented throughout the duration of this extremely difficult challenge. [asset|aid=3385|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=9e93a1bf304ccb19588e49b956fcf8a8-Mayor Jarvis_1_Pub.mp3] The small town of Taylor B.C. has been embarking on a huge challenge that is now being broadcast across the country.CBC has begun broadcasting a 10-part miniseries called “Village on a Diet” that is documenting residents’ attempts to literally drop a ton of weight in just 10 weeks.- Advertisement -Two physical trainers – using motivating methods resembling those of a drill sergeant, a physician and a dietary specialist are all involved in the show.All of the specialists were hired to help change the lifestyle of Taylor residents.The series premiere aired Monday night and showcased the town’s poor lifestyle habits and lack of physical activity, part of which were attributed to insufficient access to healthy, fresh foods.The premiere was a basic introductory episode, introducing the town, the challenge at hand, the supporting cast of specialists and most importantly, the citizens of Taylor. Along with the many Taylorites taking part in the challenge, the show also focuses on a select group of families, bringing some personal motivation and story lines to the forefront.Advertisementlast_img read more

REPORT: 41 PLAYERS LEAVE DONEGAL GAA CLUB SINCE 2008

first_imgDONEGAL’S struggle with the recession has been laid bare in a report by a leading international business newspaper.Financial Times reporter Jamie Smyth spent several days in Milford.And his report on the newspaper’s website today shows how 41 members of the local GAA club have left to start new lives abroad since 2008. The latest to leave is 28-year-old player Anthony McPaul.“The town is dying on its feet. The two banks have closed, ripping the commercial heart out of the town,” the Editor of the Tirconaill Tribune John McAteer tells Smyth.“Milford is just a microcosm of a wider malaise in rural Ireland. In Donegal the only export we have is our young people,” he says.Smyth reveals that of the 144 multi-national companies which invested in Ireland last year, 75% were in Dublin and Cork. Just one came to Donegal.Reporter Smyth writes: “Letterkenny, which was Ireland’s fastest growing town during the boom, is littered with ghost estates and half empty retail parks. Shopkeepers have suffered a huge drop in business since the crisis struck in 2008 and are not yet seeing a recovery.”The article is herehttp://www.ft.com/cms/s/73327482-2694-11e3-9dc0-00144feab7de,Authorised=false.html?_i_location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ft.com%2Fcms%2Fs%2F0%2F73327482-2694-11e3-9dc0-00144feab7de.html%3Fsiteedition%3Duk&siteedition=uk&_i_referer=#axzz2g0xrRnTc  REPORT: 41 PLAYERS LEAVE DONEGAL GAA CLUB SINCE 2008 was last modified: September 26th, 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:Financial TimesletterkennyMilfordMILFORD GAA CLUBlast_img read more

REVEALED: DONEGAL HAS WORST PLANNING RECORD – LAND ZONED FOR EXTRA 180,000 PEOPLE

first_imgDONEGAL’S record on planning applications is the worst in the country, an official report said today.Donegal County Council re-zoned land which was enough to house another 180,000 people, said An Taisce in its report.The current population of the county stands at 160,000, according to the latest Census. That means the council had created enough home planning for the population to more than doubleIt its statement An Taisce pointed out that Donegal had over 5,500 acres zoned for housing in 2010.Despite this 50% of all new residential planning permissions over ten years was for land that was unzoned.The best council was judged to be South Dublin followed by Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown, Galway City and Fingal. In its report today An Taisce was damning of Donegal County Council.An Taisce’s Charles Stanley-Smith said: “Bad planning is not victim free. The analysis shows that there is a very strong correlation between councils that have scored poorly and a range of negative socio-economic and environmental outcomes.“For example, councils which scored poorly generally had the highest rate of residential vacancy, the highest rate of population decline and out-migration, the highest levels of unfinished ‘Ghost Estates’, lower residential property prices and significant instances of ground and surface water pollution.”The report from An Taisce mentions the Mahon Tribunal’s final report which recommended that there be an independent planning regulator “free from political pressure”. An Taisce said it agreed with this recommendation and with one that said the National Spatial Strategy and future National Development Plans must be given proper legislation.Donegaldaily.com understands that an official Government investigation into planning practices at Donegal County Council will be announced ‘within weeks.’ It follows internal inquiries set up by former minister John Gormley which the present Government is reviewing.REVEALED: DONEGAL HAS WORST PLANNING RECORD – LAND ZONED FOR EXTRA 180,000 PEOPLE was last modified: April 16th, 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:000 PEOPLEREVEALED: DONEGAL HAS WORST PLANNING RECORD – LAND ZONED FOR EXTRA 180last_img read more

UNLUCKY HARPS DUMPED OUT OF CUP BY GALWAY

first_imgFINN HARPS run of bad luck continued as they were knocked out of EA Sports Cup in Galway.Vinny Faherty’s 8th minute tap-in, after a Jake Keegan shot came back off the woodwork, was the difference between the sides at Eamonn Deacy Park.Ollie Horgan can take some solace from the displays of several of his players however, not least James Doherty who had a man of the match performance for the Donegal visitors. He could have equalised in the 43rd minute but his well struck shot went wide.Josh Mailey had Galway keeper Ger Hanley beaten 13 minutes earlier, but the post denied Harps a deserved equaliser.Carol Tiofack was later denied a clear free-kick after a blatant foul on the edge of the box so Harps were denied any chance of a lifeline; McVeigh also missing a late late chance of an equaliser.Someone needs to give Ollie some lucky heather or a rabbit’s foot to stop all this bad luck coming Harps’ way.

Shaban Lubega: PML Daily Premier League team of the Week 29

first_imgKepa made a string of saves in the win over Fulham (Agency Photo)Man City climbed back atop the Premier League table thanks to a nervy 1-0 win away to Bournemouth on Saturday. Riyad Mahrez who has struggled with life in Manchester ever since completing a move from Leicester City last summer, scored the only goal of the game in the second half. This is the first time that City are top, when having played the same number of games with second placed Liverpool, since early December.For Liverpool, they failed to win again, registering their fourth draw in 6 games as they were held 0-0 away to Everton on Sunday. Liverpool now move to 70 points, one behind City with 9 games to play.In the race for the other two Champions League places, Tottenham and Arsenal shared spoils in the North London derby while Chelsea and Man United were victorious in their respective fixtures. In their game, Arsenal took a first half lead through Aaron Ramsey but Spurs pulled level in the second half off Harry Kane’s penalty. The Gunners got a glorious chance to win it in added time but Pierre Emerick Aubameyung missed from the spot to ensure the game ends level. For Chelsea, they were 2-1 winners away to Fulham with Gonzalo Higuain and Jorginho scoring for Maurizio Sarri’s men while at Old Trafford, United were required to come from 2-1 down to win 3-2. Romelu Lukaku helped himself to a brace after Andreas Pereira had initially opened the scoring in the first half for the Red Devils.Elsewhere, Wolves, Watford, West Ham, Crystal palace and Brighton were also victors this past weekend.Here are the IX players that stood out in game week 29 according to PML Daily Sports Editor, Shaban Lubega, in a 3:4:3 formation.GK: Kepa Arrizabalaga (Chelsea).He may not have done himself any favours by refusing to be substituted in the League Cup final a couple of weeks ago but Kepa made a string of brilliant saves on Sunday to ensure Chelsea defeat Fulham 2-1 away from home.RB: Seamus Coleman (Everton).A spirited performance by the Everton skipper in the 0-0 draw at home to Liverpool. Kept both Andrew Robertson and Sadio Mane at bay throughout the game.CB: Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool).Arguably the most important Reds player at the moment. The huge Dutch international made 12 clearances in the 0-0 draw away to Everton on Sunday.CB: Michael Kane (Everton).The challenge to deny Mohammad Salah capped a brilliant performance by the Englishman. Kane was at his absolute best as Everton shared the spoils with Liverpool this past weekend.LB: Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham).Against Arsenal Vertonghen was ruthless, impolite and mean-spirited. Just the sort of attitude you want from your centre-back in the middle of a north London derby. The tackle on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang immediately after Hugo Lloris’ penalty save was magnificent. In fact it was better than the penalty save itself.MF: Andreas Pereira (Man United). No Man United player created more chances than Pereira (2), who assisted one of Lukaku’s two goals on the day on top of scoring the opener himself.MF: Jorginho (Chelsea).What a way to answer the critics! Jorginho scored the winner as Chelsea defeated Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage.MF: Declan Rice (West Ham).Rice made seven tackles in West Ham’s win against Newcastle, more than twice as many as any other Hammer. He also scored the opening goal in the 2-0 victory.FW: Raul Jimenez (Wolves).Jimenez is one of the stand-out purchases of the season. He continued his fine display with yet another goal and assist as Wolves edged Cardiff 2-0 on Saturday.FW: Troy Deeney (Watford).Deeney opened the scoring for Watford against Leicester, before providing a 92nd minute assist for Andre Gray’s second.FW: Romelu Lukaku (Man United).Lukaku registered four of United’s six shots on target in the 3-2 win at home to Southampton. Two of those four shots found the back of the net.Comments Tags: Pml daily team of the weekShaban Lubegatoplast_img read more
