STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN -FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2019

first_imgMIDNIGHT BISOU STIRS THE MIX FOR HORSE OF THE YEAR GINOBILI TRIES TURF IN ‘WIN AND YOU’RE IN’ SPEAKEASY SADLER HAS THE NUMBERS, 19 ENTERED IN THREE DAYSJohn Sadler, who has run eight horses the first four days of Santa Anita’s 23-day Autumn meet, continues his entry box binge today through this weekend with 19 more entered, seven of them in stakes.“We have Flagstaff and Horse Greedy in the Santa Anita Sprint Championship on Saturday,” Sadler began. “Flagstaff is a very fast horse with good numbers, stepping up in class but we’ve got a good draw (four of six).“Horse Greedy hasn’t started in three months–there wasn’t another race–so it looks tough for him, but he’s a nice horse, so we’ll give it a go.“Catapult is in the City of Hope. He won the Grade I Shoemaker Mile last May and we ran him once at Del Mar (eighth in the Grade I Eddie Read on Aug. 18), but he was a little close to the pace in that race. We’ll back off on Saturday.“Selcourt goes in the LA Woman, and all four of her wins have come at Santa Anita. She’s been freshened for four months, and we hope this will be a prep for the Breeders’ Cup ($1 million Filly & Mare Sprint at seven furlongs on Nov. 2).“Yuvetsi makes her first start on the grass in a while (in the Springtime Stakes), and Lady Suebee (also in the Springtime) is coming off a sharp win in the Tranquility Lake.”Overall, Sadler has six horses entered today, 11 on Saturday, and two on Sunday.The Sprint Championship, race nine of 10 with a 12:30 p.m. first post time: $6,000 supplemental nominee One Flew South, Evin Roman, 30-1; Omaha Beach, Mike Smith, 8-5; Shancelot, Emisael Jaramillo, 4-5; Flagstaff, Victor Espinoza, 4-1; California Street, Drayden Van Dyke, 15-1; and Horse Greedy, Martin Pedroza, 15-1.The City of Hope, race eight: Ohio, Norberto Arroyo Jr., 12-1; Synchrony, Joe Talamo, 5-1; True Valour, Drayden Van Dyke, 10-1; Restrainedvengence, Martin Garcia, 15-1; Big Score, Mike Smith, 10-1; Catapult, Rafael Bejarano, 5-1; River Boyne, Ruben Fuentes, 4-1; Kingly, Mario Gutierrez, 20-1; Prince Earl, Geovanni Franco, 7-2; Andesh, Abel Cedillo, 20-1; and Bolo, Tyler Baze, 6-1.Ohio drew the rail for the sixth time in his last 12 races. “My owner told me the odds of that happening are 44,000 to one,” trainer Michael McCarthy said.THREE STAKES FEATURED ON SATURDAY’S NBC SPORTSSaturday’s NBC Sports Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series will present expanded coverage to include the Grade III LA Woman Stakes (scheduled post time 2:33 p.m. PT) incorporated into the regularly scheduled America’s Day at the Races Show.America’s Day at the Races (4 to 5 p.m. PT) will cover the Santa Anita Sprint Championship with Laffit Pincay and Gary Stevens in studio and Michelle Yu reporting.STREAKING MIDNIGHT BISOU HAS HORSE OF YEAR CREDENTIALSWith seven straight graded stakes win on her gaudy resume and a clouded picture in the handicap and three-year-old ranks, Midnight Bisou has emerged from the also-eligible list to the starting lineup among those vying for Horse of the Year honors.“She’s very much in the conversation,” said part-owner Jeff Bloom, on hand at Santa Anita where the four-year-old filly trained by Steve Asmussen arrived Monday from Belmont Park to prepare for the $2 million Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff on Nov. 2.“When you look at her body of work and the fact that she started in January of this year and has continued throughout, hopefully undefeated, it speaks for itself,” added Bloom, a San Diego native who rode for nine years, learning his trade at San Luis Rey Downs under the tutelage of former jockey Muzzy Francis.“She’s had a stellar campaign and I think her performances put her right in there for Horse of the Year consideration. It’s a year where there isn’t an absolute clear-cut handicap horse, and the three-year-old division has been topsy-turvy all the way through.“One horse has been consistent and it’s Midnight Bisou. She’s been solid from the get-go. It’s been the ride of a lifetime. Just as a fan, it’s been a remarkable experience to witness her greatness. She’s one of a kind.”BALTAS HOPES GRASS IS GREENER IN ‘WIN AND YOU’RE IN’ SPEAKEASYGinobili tries the turf for the first time in his abbreviated career of three races when he starts in Sunday’s $100,000, Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Speakeasy Stakes for two-year-olds on the grass.After breaking his maiden at nearly 20-1 at Del Mar on Aug. 3, the bay son of Munnings was fourth of eight in the Grade I Del Mar Futurity on Sept. 2.“The horse is very fast and he’s bred a little bit for the turf,” trainer Richard Baltas said. “It’s a Win and You’re In and we thought it’d be an easier spot than stretching him out in the American Pharoah, and it does seem like he’s got a lot of gas.“So it was either this or we send him back east. It might be the right move. We’ll see.”The Speakeasy is race six on an eight-race program with a 12:30 p.m. first post time: Greg’s Diva, Tyler Baze, 9-2; Alfie Solomons, Victor Espinoza, 5-1; Commander, Abel Cedillo, 12-1; Mr. Tip, Sophie Doyle, 12-1; Bulletproof One, Norberto Arroyo Jr., 12-1; Ginobili, Drayden Van Dyke, 4-1; Raging Whiskey, Rafael Bejarano, 5-1; Square Deal, Flavien Prat, 5-1; Absolute Weapon, Martin Garcia, 30-1; Biddy Duke, Aaron Gryder, 12-1; and El Tigre Terrible, Ruben Fuentes, 8-1.FINISH LINES: Citing illness, Flavien Prat took of his scheduled three mounts today.

Sevilla added 20 points against their remaining rivals

first_imgWhen the competition resumes will subtract eleven days for the conclusion of the championship and in the Seville You already know that repeating what was done in the first round may not be enough. And it is that before eleven rivals those who have to face even those of Lopetegui joined 20 points from 33 possible on the first lap. Statistics is not a bad thing, but rrepeat these results they would place Sevilla with 67 points to end of season, a figure that only finished in the top four in half of the Leagues of this last decade. Six wins, two draws Y three defeats in the first round were the results of Sevilla. On the positive side of the balance is the fact that the point projection This year it seems less than in previous courses. In addition, those of Nervión have already solved their matches with Real Madrid and Atlético, with what is the visit of Barcelona to Sánchez Pizjuán the last clash against a great rival that remains this championship. By cons, and even if it is in the air, the Seville will have what fight in this ending championship on the LaLiga front and also on the elimiting of the Europa League. And they will be matches a lot more substance than those disputed during the first round in the more than affordable group stage that the competition brought him this season.As soon as to direct rivals, Sevilla have you earned the goal average particular to Getafe and have it tied with Atlético de Madrid, reason why with the colchoneros it would be necessary to go to the general in case of a tie. Regarding Real Sociedad, the Seville He won 3-2 against the people of San Sebastian in the first round but they will still have to visit Anoeta. On the other hand, it will be Valencia who will have to visit Sánchez Pizjuán even to tie the 1-1 tie with which the first round match ended.Logically, it remains to be seen how the teams will sit having stopped more than a month, the return to training, the accumulation of parties to end the championship or having to play, almost certainly, door closed. However, the projection of points is there and in Sevilla they know that errors cannot be repeated like the ones that deprived the team of the victory in the first round in games like the Eibar or the visit to Mestalla itself.last_img read more

Supreme Court Upholds 25-year Lease Cancellation

first_imgThe Supreme Court has upheld a 2014 lower court ruling against the Liberia Materials Limited, which found it breached a 25-year old lease agreement with the National Port Authority (NPA).  The decision was released by Associate Justice Philip A.Z. Banks on February 10, after denying an appeal from the cement company to reverse an earlier verdict of the Civil Law Court.  The dispute and legal proceedings which began last year, stemmed from a 2010 lease agreement between the NPA and the Liberia Material Limited which Judge Peter Gbeneweleh cancelled because, according to him, LML breached the agreement and the terms by not commencing construction work within the 90-day period.  The property is a 7. 414 acre parcel of land situated within the Freeport of Monrovia, which the Liberia Material Limited leased for the purpose of constructing cement grinding manufacturing, storage and administrative facilities.   The LML agreed to invest US$5m in the first five of the 25 years.  In the ruling the Civil Law Court Judge stated that, “Since the company admitted that they have not been able to undertake the construction work for four years following the execution of the agreement, this certainly provided a clear and undisputed basis for its cancellation.”  It was based on the verdict that lawyers representing the company took an appeal before the Supreme Court.  The lawyers argued that the lawsuit for cancellation was of a purely factual nature, which should have been submitted to the trial jury for its determination.  Instead, Judge Gbeneweleh decided to handle it without the jury, which they alleged, was in gross error, basing his determination only on the fact alleged by the parties in the respective pleadings.  “The Judge should have limited himself to ruling on the law issues rather than intruding into the facts which under the law are reserved for the jury,” they emphasized in the appeal.  They acknowledged breaching the agreement and the terms by not commencing construction work within the 90-day period.  But, they contended that they did not meet up with the agreement plan because they could not obtain cooperation of relevant government officials and agencies in securing the required permits to commence the construction.  According to them, Judge Gbeneweleh denied them due process, and deprived them of the opportunity to present evidence in their own defense.  However, Justice Banks in his opinion, stated that  while it would have been more prudent for Judge Gbeneweleh to have submitted the facts to a jury trial, the error was excused by the acknowledgement by the company.  He further explained that as the action of the Judge in decreeing the cancellation of the lease agreement resulted in no harm, injury, prejudice, injustice or denial of due process, recognizes the principle of acknowledgement and the admission.  “The error made by the judge cannot be deemed to be one of a reversible nature,” he emphasized.  “We, therefore, cannot sustain the contention of the company that the error was a reversible one and that we should therefore reverse the decision of the judge.”  In his concluding statement, Mr. Justice Banks declared: “The ruling of the trial court adjudging the company in violation of the lease agreement executed with the NPA and decreeing the cancellation of the said agreement is hereby affirmed and confirmed.”  In 2014, NPA instituted an “Action for Cancellation of Lease Agreement against the Liberia Material Limited,” contending that since they entered into the lease agreement on July 1, 2010, a period of three years and four months, the company never made  any attempt to commence construction work on the leased property.  It further argued that the agreement provides that upon the signing of the agreement, the company was to commence the construction within 90 days immediately, but if they failed to do so, the NPA had the right to terminate the contract.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Off-duty officer hurt in collision

first_imgAn off-duty Los Angeles police officer was injured in Acton early Wednesday during a head-on collision with a vehicle driven by a man suspected of being drunk, authorities said. LAPD Officer Amanda Chapin, 38, underwent surgery for leg fractures, department spokeswoman Officer Karen Smith said. Chapin, a nine-year LAPD veteran, works out of the Devonshire station. Cesar Octavio Contreras, 29, of Lancaster was treated for nonlife-threatening injuries before being booked on suspicion of driving under the influence, Smith said. The collision occurred about 3:45a.m. on Sierra Highway near Acton Canyon Road, said Gary Wise, a dispatcher for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Sierra Highway was closed for more than an hour as the Highway Patrol investigated. Later in the day, five people were injured – two of them seriously – in a four-vehicle collision on Interstate5 north of Pyramid Lake. The incident was caused by a car that rear-ended a horse trailer, then tried to avoid hitting another car. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Max takes a stand

first_imgThey agreed. “I want people not to have breast cancer,” said the reserved young man with the shocking blond hair. “I don’t want other people to lose their aunties and loved ones.” From that inauspicious beginning, the event has grown from a stand run by a little boy and his family to a nonprofit organization with its own Web site. Max has raised more than $20,000 of his $1 million goal. “I’m going to keep doing it until I reach my goal,” he said. Nickie Igoe said the decision to become a nonprofit organization is to raise more money and be able to allocate funds to other areas beyond research. Up until now, all the money has gone to City of Hope in Duarte and its research programs. “Max wanted to help as many people, it’s in his nature,” his mom said, “so we decided to earmark money to pay for wigs for those who can’t afford them and to set up scholarships for those who have lost their moms to breast cancer.” The family will host “Max’s Night to Remember” from 6 to 11p.m. on Oct. 13 at Ritz Gardens, 11201 First Ave., Whittier. Festivities will include dinner in a casino-like atmosphere and activities such as raffles and live and silent auctions. Tickets are $60 with reservations available at (714) 815-2104 or maxsmommy@maxslemonadestand.com. Max, because of his age, will only be able to attend the dinner portion and make some remarks before the other activities begin. “It’s going to be fun,” he said. “All I want is cancer to be gone.” www.maxslemonadestand.com sandra.molina@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “It’s a great and loving way of remembering her,” said Rorman’s brother, Victor Garza, 44. He is planning to set up the lemonade stand today and Sunday at the parking lot of Green Hills Baptist Church, 2200 W. Imperial Highway, La Habra. Max, his parents and other supporters will be out there from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. not only selling lemonade but also raffle tickets for items donated by local businesses. It began innocently enough when then-6-year-old Max asked his parents if he could sell lemonade in the driveway of their home. When they said “no,” the ever-resilient young man asked if he gave all the money to breast cancer research, could he do it? LA HABRA – With innocence and earnest determination, 9-year-old Max Igoe is putting the adage “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” to the test. During October – which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – for four years, Max, with the aid of his parents Mike and Nickie, has opened a lemonade stand with the proceeds going to breast cancer research. He is honoring close family friend Elizabeth Rorman, or “Auntie Beth,” as Max called her. She died from the disease in July 2003 at age 37 after a seven-year battle. last_img read more

GAA NOTES: BUNCRANA

first_imgSympathy: The Club wishes to express its sincere sympathies to the McMenamin family Eamon, Patricia, Fergal and Claire on the passing of Eamon’s father John.Minor Hurling: The U18 hurlers got their season of to a good start in Hibernian Park Burt on Thursday night with a hard fought win, with a scoreline of 2:9 to 1:7, whilst fielding a very young squad with only 3 of the team overage next year. The game was played in ideal conditions, and swung from end to end. Burt got a couple of early points to run into an early lead, with the Scarvey boys missing several chances early on, but they soon settled and went in at Halftime 2 points in front, thanks to a Dermot Doherty goal. Burt got a goal mid-way through the second half, but a bullet penalty by Jack O’Loughlin eased nerves and the boys sealed it by tagging on some late points.The swift accurate puck outs from keeper Tom Clare were the launch-pad for many Buncrana attacks. Donal Óg Mac Lochlainn (capt.) was a rock at full back and he was ably assisted by young corner backs, Paul Nelson and Darren Doherty (roe). There was many good performances in the middle third of the field, with veteran’s Daniel, Conor, Stephen, Jamie and Michael all playing their part with their involvement with the county minor set-up baring fruit, but here too they were aided by the impressive work of U16 players, Jack and Sam (Roe). In front of goal Dermot Doherty showed glimpse’s of form, and when introduced as sub Kevin Crawford made a welcome return to the squad but both will know that more stick work is needed.U16 Hurling: On Saturday morning the U16 Hurlers headed to Banagher to play in the U16 9-aside competition. They started brightly against Glen’s of Antrim side Glenshesk, losing only to a late rally from the strong Antrim outfit. Tthey then went on to comfortly beat Banagher and Belfast outfit Pearse’s. A leg injury to Sam Doherty restricted him to netminding duties, whilst injuries to Jack O’Loughlin and Darren Roe left the side weakened going into the last games, where they lost to Armagh side Derrynoose and Antrim side Larne. All in all it was a good day out and our lads were able to play teams they would not normally get a chance to meet. U14 Hurling: The U14 hurlers had a good win on Thursday night over Burt, with a scoreline of 9-22 to 0-3, in the Scarvey. It was a good team performance by all, whilst Dylan Duffy, Craig Doherty and Oisin Grant were on fire in the half-forward line, Paddy Wilson and Kevin Vaughan were on top in midfield and the half back line of James Doherty, PJ McCarron and Paul Tourish were rock solid – all chipping in with great points. Daniel Deery at corner forward scored 4 goals.Bord na nÓg: The Bord na nÓg meeting will now be held on Friday 20th April at 18:30 in the clubhouse instead of Wednesday 18th April at 20:30.

American shrapnel linked to al-Qaida leader’s death

first_imgMIRAN SHAH, Pakistan – Shrapnel that appeared to be from an American-made missile was found Sunday at the house where Pakistan said a top al-Qaida operative was killed in an explosion, although President George W. Bush’s national security adviser declined to confirm the death. U.S. and Pakistani officials would not verify an NBC report, citing anonymous officials, that the attack on the house where Hamza Rabia reportedly died was launched by a U.S. drone. But local residents found at least two pieces of shrapnel at the blast scene inscribed with the designation of the Hellfire missile, which is carried by the U.S. Air Force’s unmanned, remote-controlled Predator aircraft. The metal pieces bore the designator “AGM-114,” the words “guided missile” and the initials “US.” “At this point we are not in a position publicly to confirm that he is dead. But if he is, that is a good thing for the war on terror,” Hadley told “Fox News Sunday.” Rabia was involved in planning two assassination plots against Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf, and “we believe he was involved in planning for attacks against the United States,” Hadley said. The senior Pakistani intelligence official said the missile attack blew up a stockpile of bomb-making materials, grenades and other munitions. Pakistan Interior Minister Aftab Khan Sherpao said Rabia’s two Syrian bodyguards also died in the explosion. Pakistani officials said Rabia’s death was confirmed by DNA tests.

Dawn also cited unnamed sources saying the attack may have been launched from two pilotless planes. Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed declined to comment on the report about Rabia’s remains but said there was “other information” besides the DNA tests that confirmed his identity. “He was a high-profile commander in the network. We were tracing him for the last two years,” Sherpao told The Associated Press on Sunday. “Naturally any person killed in their hierarchy is a big blow for them.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
