CALIFORNIA-BRED SUNDAY RULES STORMS TO 4 ¼ LENGTH WIN IN $75,000 KALOOKAN QUEEN STAKES; ALEXANDER HOMEBRED, RIDDEN BY SMITH & TRAINED BY D’AMATO, GETS 6 ½ FURLONGS IN 1:14.77

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 30, 2015)–Favored Sunday Rules made short work of seven rivals in storming to a 4 ¼ length win in Wednesday’s $75,000 Kalookan Queen Stakes at Santa Anita. Owned and bred by Nick Alexander, the 4-year-old California-bred daughter of Tribal Rule got 6 ½ furlongs under Mike Smith in 1:14.77.Blessed with an abundance of natural speed, the Phil D’Amato-conditioned Sunday Rules broke running from post position five, shook clear of longshot Dancinthenightaway leaving the quarter pole and cruised home to her seventh win from eight lifetime starts.Off at 4-5, Sunday Rules paid $3.80, $2.80 and $2.40.“Once we jumped well and she got a clear lead, I felt confident that she was going to run well, but you also never know how fast they’re going to push you,” said Smith. “The track is playing really quick and although we were running fast, it was well within her scope and she was fine. When Dancinthenightaway came up to me around the quarter pole, I moved her over just a bit and she just took off. It was pretty impressive.”Out of the General Meeting mare Sunday Dress, Sunday Rules, who picked up her third stakes win, banked $59,940, increasing her earnings to $444,840.“As a baby, she was very unimpressive,” said Alexander, known to hundreds of thousands of Southlanders as the proprietor of Nick Alexander Imports which advertises on radio with the slogan “Nick Can’t Say No”. “She was lame as a yearling. Nothing to look at, she was a plain bay, but from the first time she breezed, (late trainer) Mike Mitchell told me ‘We’ve got something here. We’re not going to run her for a tag.’ And we never have…I’m really proud of her.”Last early with Rafael Bejarano up, Kiss at Midnight was off at 5-1 and paid $3.80 and $2.80.Lost Bus, who added blinkers with Fernando Perez aboard, sat third throughout at odds of 39-1 and paid $8.60 to show.Fractions on the race were 21.52, 44.18 and 1:08.22.First post time for an eight-race card on Thursday is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.last_img read more

Kane Watson then brushed aside Mosangsinh Sonpasith 3-0, winning 11-5, 11-4, 11-3 and Mark Phillips beat Oliyavong Phonepaseud 3-2 in five sets — 6-11, 12-10, 11-3, 6-11, 11-7.In their first game on Sunday, Jamaica defeated Morrocco, also 3-0.Hyatt dismissed his opponent 11-6, 11-4, 11-5, Watson won 13-11, 11-5, 11-7 and Phillips won 11-4, 1-10, 11-4 win in the final match.The Jamaicans are second in the group with maximum four points.

I believe that most of the things my challenger sought to address are all valid. However, it has to be about the approach. I choose to incorporate the clubs in my decision-making and that is why the affiliates have given me another term to lead,” said Daley.”We try to make them part of the process of change, we understand the culture they work under and help each club administratively to become a lot more professional in their set-up and their development and I believe that they appreciate how we deal with things,” Daley said.Powell’s impressive slate of candidates included former national goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts, Sandra Christie, Germaine Spencer, Edmund Sherriff and Kenneth Watson.last_img read more

St George’s College mourns – ISSA responds to student’s death

first_img “I know this is really going to take a toll. I have been touching base with some of the principals, and we are looking to get to St George’s tomorrow (today) to share, and I am trying to get the Ministry (of Education) to bring in a few of their counsellors because it’s going to be a very tough moment for everyone, therefore, we are going to make all efforts to ensure people are there to offer some support,” added Small. Still, the fact that James was taken to hospital in his father’s vehicle has again raised questions about the inadequate medical support at local schoolboy football games. “We are aware. For example, we know there are a lot of matches being played in this round, and even if you are to get all the ambulances in Jamaica at the venues, we would not have enough ambulances, therefore, what we encourage the schools to do is to make arrangements with the nearest hospital or medical facility,” said Small. “When we get to the second round when ISSA takes over (the running of each game), because these (first round) matches are in the ambit of the schools, we ensure that we have ambulances where possible,” Small said. “At this level, it is impossible to have each school having an ambulance at the field since we are playing so many matches.” The executive of the Inter Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) is expected to meet today to discuss the way forward, after yesterday’s sudden death of St George’s College student Dominic James during a Manning Cup football match. James, who was the team’s captain, collapsed approximately four minutes into yesterday’s game against Excelsior High at Stadium East and was later pronounced dead at the University Hospital of the West Indies. ISSA President Dr Walton Small, who expressed shock and sadness at the youngster’s passing, sought also to explain why there was no ambulance stationed at the venue and noted that the next set of Manning Cup fixtures might be suspended, while the executive looks to ensure sufficient support for those affected by the tragedy. “We want to express condolences to the family. I also want to express condolence to the St George’s family, it’s really a shock, and we are all in mourning at this moment,” Small told The Gleaner yesterday afternoon. “We (ISSA executive) were supposed to meet on Thursday, but I am looking to call an emergency meeting tomorrow (today). “I have not yet spoken to my peers, but there might be a moment of silence at the upcoming matches. We will look at postponing the next set of Manning Cup matches, but again, I have not yet spoken to the executive,” added Small. COUNSELLING FOR STUDENTSlast_img read more

Bolick: ‘I love playing against Perpetual’

first_imgThe Altas also kept San Beda’s offense in check, limiting them to a 26-percent clip, a stark contrast to the Red Lions’ average of 42.1 percent. They also held the foes to just 11 assists, far from San Beda’s average of 17 per outing.Bolick took responsibility for the Red Lions’ dismal performance.“Ever since, my role here is to get my teammates involved, and I didn’t do that today. I was looking for my shots, forcing my shots, and it’s my fault. I should get my teammates involved.”The senior guard, though, said that San Beda should charge this to experience as it looks to come out better in its next game against EAC on Friday.“We should be better. We should understand that (Perpetual is) a good defensive team, and we should execute,” he said. “But again, I’m happy for us. We’ll take this one and we will improve as a team.”ADVERTISEMENT For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.

Ebola Survivor Reunites with Family

first_imgA medical physician at the Redemption Hospital in New Kru Town, who was diagnosed with the Ebola virus, was Wednesday, July 16, reunited with his family at the J.F.K Cholera Division.Claudius Banarwolo, who started medication on June 28 this year, claimed that he contracted the virus from the nurse who recently passed out at the hospital.In a statement, the Chair of Ebola Management Committee, Dr. Moses Massaquoi, cautioned people to take Ebola seriously and report suspected cases immediately.He said when suspected cases are reported in a timely manner the Management Team, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, will provide supportive treatment.Dr. Massaquoi, however, called on Liberians to help the Ministry by making use of the hotline estblished to report persons showing signs and symptoms of Ebola.Looking frail and pail, Claudius Banarwolo thanked God and the Ministry of Health for their continuous support during his time of illness.“It was the grace of God that has brought me thus far. I am saying this because, even before I came here, people pronounced me dead in my community or place of work. And to see myself here today, it is a miracle.“Since I was diagnosed positive, it has not been easy for me. I was in real pain; I even lost hope of surviving.“I contracted the disease from the nurse who died at hospital because I was the person assigned to treat her. At the time, she had not been tested to know what was wrong with her.“It is by the grace of God I am able to feel nature once more,” Banarwolo said shivering.Amongst the relatives who attended Banarwolo’s reintegration Program, Nennie Parker, who is also a health practitioner, said it’s about time the Health Ministry starts thinking about health workers.She said health workers remain vulnerable to diseases, viruses and other contaminable sicknesses even in the absence of Ebola.“The Ministry should start thinking about us because we are not protected. And in cases of high risk diseases, health workers stand greater chance of being contaminated than any other people. “So today, I am happy that my nephew is out safe and alive. His parents and relatives have been marginalized in the community. People have warned their wives and children not to go close to their home in order to stay alive.”“Ebola is real and dangerous,” she warned.Pastor Solomon Telewoyan, pastor in charge of the World Limitation Outreach Church in the Rehab Community, advised the religious community to remain strong in interceding on behalf of the country.He said that citizens should also pray for other suspected and confirmed cases.“As a church, we have been praying for this young man because he is one of our members. Not only because he is our member, but we have also been interceding on behalf of the country and other victims of this illness,” the Pastor said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Lawyers Seek to Avoid Jury Trial

first_imgFollowing claims and counter claims over government lawyers influencing members of a jury to bring down a verdict in their favor, defense lawyers are gradually avoiding their cases from being decided by jurors.Juror tampering is a criminal offense characterized by attempts to influence members of a jury by means other than evidence and arguments presented in court, according to a legal expert.“This act should be a considerable concern for the legal system,” the expert warned, adding, “The goal of holding a trial is to provide people with a fair, honest and complete hearing with a jury that decides the case on the basis of information presented in court.” To make their decision interesting, last Monday, lawyers representing four former employees of the Liberia Coco-Cola Bottling Company (LCCBC) accused of stealing over US$1.8 million openly informed Judge Peter Gbeneweleh of Criminal Court ‘C’ that they waved their clients rights under the law to be tried by a jury.At Monday’s hearing, Judge Gbeneweleh granted the defense team’s request after a member of the prosecution team, Cllr. Theophilus Gould, gave no objection.Another instance is the ongoing US$6 million Private Use Permit case, at the same Criminal Court ‘C,” where lawyers representing four dismissed senior managers of the Forestry Development Authority (FDA), and a senior surveyor at the Ministry of Land, Mines and Energy (MLME) avoided jury trial.Meanwhile the court had recruited several individuals to serve as jurors, who will be paid by taxpayers’ money even if they did not hear a single case for the 42 days for which they were selected to serve as jurors.According to the expert, the result of jury tampering is a false verdict or mistrial both of which, he said, “are costly for the legal system and delay justice in the case at hand.”He indicated that there were numerous ways that people can try to influence jurors. “These include bribes threats, and unauthorized communications.”He added, “Juror tampering can come from attorneys, defendants, plaintiffs, and members of the public with an interest in the case.” He also advised that if a juror is approached by someone, who is attempting to engage in juror tampering or has reason to believe that another juror is involved in tampering, it must be reported.“If jurors are tampered with, and this is not identified in time, this could have an influence on the verdict that would result in a miscarriage of justice,” he added.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Leeds lining up emergency loan deal for out-of-favour Premier League striker

first_imgLeeds United are among the clubs hopeful of agreeing an emergency loan deal for Norwich outcast Kyle Lafferty.The 28-year-old has made just one Premier League appearance all season – as a 77th-minute substitute in Norwich’s 2-1 defeat to Leicester in October – and looks no closer to securing a regular place in Alex Neil’s first team.The striker is a key member of the Northern Ireland team and wants to play first-team football in the lead up to the summer’s European Championships – but failed to secure a move away during the January window.However, it is now likely that he will move away once the loan window opens next week and there are no shortage of clubs hoping to land the talented striker.Lafferty, who has already spent time at FC Sion, Palermo and Rizespor during a nomadic career, is a target for Leeds boss Steve Evans and the Yorkshire side are reportedly lining up a loan offer.
