first_imgHarris Farms’ Homebred Fashionably Fast All Heart In Winning $100,000 Tiznow Stakes By One Half Length Under Pereira; Trained By Pederson, He Gets One Mile In 1:36.64 RACE IS PART OF LUCRATIVE GOLDEN STATE SERIES FOR CALIFORNIA-BRED OR SIRED HORSESARCADIA, Calif. (March 1, 2020)–Harris Farms’ homebred Fashionably Fast stretched out to a flat mile off of five consecutive sprint victories with aplomb on Sunday at Santa Anita, as the 5-year-old gelding by Lucky Pulpit pressed the pace and registered a half length win while hand ridden late by Tiago Pereira in the $100,000 Tiznow Stakes at Santa Anita.  Trained by Dean Pederson, he got the distance in 1:36.64.Breaking from post position three in a field of five California-bred or sired older horses, Fashionably Fast, who’s last three wins had come in California-bred stakes, sat just off the early pace set by Tiger Dad, who was drawn to his immediate inside and overhauled him in mid-stretch.“I thought the number two (Tiger Dad) would go and he did,” said Pereira, who has been aboard Fashionably Fast in his last 10 races.  “When we got by the two (leaving the furlong pole), he saw the one (Oliver) coming and he’s just a fighter.  I hand rode him and he’s so game.  He likes to win.”With good support coming for runner-up Oliver, Fashionably Fast was off as the 6-5 favorite and paid $4.40, $2.60 and $2.40.Owned by John Harris, Per Antonsen and John Nicoletti, Fashionably Fast, who is out of the Forestry mare Fall Fashion, posted his fourth consecutive stakes victory and his seventh overall from 16 starts.  With the winner’s share of $60,000, he increased his earnings to $449,745.“His last couple of works, Tiago has worked hard on getting him to relax in the first part but still finish,” said Pederson.  “To me, that was the key to the race today.  If he relaxed, he himself a chance.  If he didn’t relax, you get back to the barn and get the bathwater ready.  He’s just confident, mature and he has always had talent, but he was his own worst enemy early on.”Oliver, who stalked both Tiger Dad and Fashionably Fast while saving ground inside, angled out turning for home and made the winner hustle late while finishing second, 2 ¼ lengths clear of Tiger Dad.Ridden by Abel Cedillo, Oliver was the second choice at 2-1 and paid $2.80 to show.Tiger Dad, who had the misfortune of drawing inside the winner, finished 2 ¼ lengths in front of Posterize and paid $2.80 to show while off at 7-2 with Victor Espinoza up.Fractions on the race were 23.28, 46.66, 1:11.13 and 1:23.54.Named for the California-bred 2000 Horse of the Year and two-time Breeders’ Cup Classic winner, the Tiznow is part of the lucrative Golden State Series.  Sponsored by the CTBA, the Golden State Series is for eligible California-bred or sired horses.last_img read more

GuySuCo silent 6 months after Uitvlugt flying knives’ incident

first_img…engineering manager reportedly transferred – sourceBy Shemuel FanfairSix months after what was described as “negligence” wrecked the Uitvlugt Estate’s number two turbine and sent 64 out of 70 knives flying, the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) is yet to give official word on what specific actions were taken to rein in those responsible for the costly mishap.Guyana Times now understands that an Engineering Manager (name provided) has been transferred to a supervisory post in what a source familiar with last’s year investigation deemed a “demotion”.After this disclosure was made, this newspaper contacted GuySuCo PublicUitvlugt Estate (Agriculture Ministry photo)Relations Officer (PRO) Audreyanna Thomas on Wednesday, and she indicated that she could not at the time respond to queries over what specific actions were taken in light of the investigation. She observed that she would be able to provide more information at a later date.On August 11, 2018, some $18 million worth of sugar cane produce at the Uitvlugt Estate, West Coast Demerara, was left to spoil after the turbine malfunctioned. Though some of the produce was eventually salvaged, correcting the breakdown was essentially at the expense of the taxpayer. The knives, which are made out of carbon steel, weigh 20lbs each.GuySuCo revealed, later in August 2018, that it launched its investigation by senior management to probe the spoilage and also to understand how the mishap occurred.Though preliminary investigations unearthed by Guyana Times suggested that management was considering “negligence”, official word was never given to solidify this revelation.It was reported in the media that workers had started up the number two turbine at about 09:30h when a section called the “governor” was reportedly not maintained properly in the out of crop period. The turbine has 70 knives on the sharp which spins to shred the canes, and on the day of the mishap, when workers had started the machines, it overspun, and the knives flew out several feet away, which had forced several workers to dart for safety and take cover.Information which this newspaper sourced from the GuySuCo investigation explained that 10 components from the turbine had been destroyed. The Estate Manager, Yudhisthira Mana, had not publically disclosed the full cost to repair the shredder machine, which was reportedly in the millions.<> reported last year that the number two turbine was completely damaged, and it had to be replaced with a turbine from the defunct La Bonne Intention Estate (LBI). The original sharp from the Uitvlugt Estate has also been completely damaged in last year’s mishap. In October 2018, reports surfaced that two mangers were sent on administrative leave to facilitate the probe, but it is yet to be made clear if it was one of those very managers that was supposedly demoted.The Uitvlugt Estate is the lone Demerara Estate, with Wales and East Demerara having been shuttered in 2016 and 2017 respectively. The Special Purposes Unit assumed control of all of the closed estates. Many of the former workers of the Wales Estate, which numbered over 1000, obtained employment at Uitvlugt.last_img read more

WCup expectations a ‘sufferance’ for Messi

first_imgEven before they squeezed into the second round, Argentina flattered to deceive, drawing 1-1 with Iceland, losing 3-0 to Croatia and squeezing past a plucky Nigeria 2-1 in the group stages.Sampaoli said expectations that Argentina would win the tournament emanating from the country’s football federation stifled the creativity and success of Messi and his fellow players.“The best player in the world (Messi) was devoted” to the Argentina cause, Sampaoli said in comments to Spanish sports daily Marca.“At his club (Barcelona) he has great stability. But when he comes to the national team a collective hysteria takes over and it’s like we’re expected to win.“This is not possible. If we don’t win, it’s him (Messi) who cops all the criticism. So you can’t play, and you can’t enjoy it.”He added: “The weight of expectation on this team was too heavy. We all felt pushed by the obligation to win, which meant it was difficult for us to express our talents.“It was difficult to work in those conditions because there was only one available option: to be world champions.“Putting that kind of obligation ahead of the match itself made everything much more complicated.”Although Sampaoli pledged to hang on to his job following their elimination, he soon resigned from his post.The Argentinian federation have appointed Lionel Scaloni, their former under-20 coach, as Argentina coach.Sampaoli, 58, offered him some advice: “We need to find a balance so that this obligation to win doesn’t generate even more anxiety.“Every match (at the World Cup) was a sufferance.”Messi’s future with the national side has been in doubt since Argentina’s elimination.According to reports, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner asked not to be considered for selection for a series of friendlies in September and October.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Game over: Argentina’s Lionel Messi walking off the pitch after their 4-3 defeat to France at the World Cup. © AFP / FRANCK FIFEMADRID, Spain, Oct 9 – Former Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli said the ‘Albiceleste’ were saddled with excessive expectations at the World Cup, stifling the performances of his players, including Lionel Messi.Argentina were tipped as possible winners of the tournament in Russia but were eliminated at the knockout phase following a tense 4-3 defeat to eventual champions France.last_img read more

Welcome to the Valley

first_imgToday, the Los Angeles City Council convenes its first of what will be regularly monthly meetings at the Van Nuys City Hall. While the meetings are still during the day, making it tough for regular working people to attend, the location in the middle of the San Fernando Valley couldn’t be better. It’s a positive sign from a group of people best known in the Valley for their uninterest in these parts. We are heartened by the promise by Council President Eric Garcetti to make sure the usual Friday fluff – visiting dignitaries, honors for local organizations and other weirdness – is kept to a minimum. Like other parts of the city, the people of the Valley have real needs, from street repairs to development to unsafe parks and police presence. So, we welcome the 15 council members to the Valley. Now, get to work. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

first_imgThe eight men killed in the crash.The families of eight people who died in a car crash in Inishowen, could face costs of more than €10,000 each for copies of Garda documents already prepared for completed legal proceedings.More than 250 witness statements were collected by gardaí in advance of the criminal trial of Shaun Kelly, convicted of dangerous driving in 2014, following the single biggest loss of life from a car crash, in 2010. The Irish Times reports today that families of the bereaved, who asked for copies of the documents at their relatives’ inquest, completed earlier this month, were told they would have to pay for them.Gardaí charge €60 for a copy of the abstract of the Garda report, and €40 for each copy of a witness statement. There are also charges for copies of photographs. At the time of going to press, gardaí could not supply a figure for photograph costs.In 2014, relatives of crash victims were charged €778,000 for crash reports, up from €709,000 in 2013.In 2010, the fees totalled €502,000. But charges were increased during 2011, from €41 for a Garda abstract and €21 for witness reports to the current rate.The following year, 2012, there was a dramatic rise in fees collected, to €731,000.Road safety group Parc (Public Against Road Carnage) has lobbied for the abolition of the fees since 2009.Chairwoman Susan Gray said the organisation is very concerned for families who face the high charges.“These documents are often the only way that families have of getting information about the circumstances which led to their loved one’s death,” she said.An accused person can see the entire book of evidence “free of charge”, but bereaved families are deprived of any information until after the conviction, and “must then go and pay for it”.“This shows little compassion for those who are victims and is perceived as nothing short of a revenue collection exercise on the part of An Garda Síochána,” Ms Gray said.She said the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission gave documents free of charge to relatives on “humanitarian grounds” when they investigate a fatal road traffic collision involving gardaí. She asked why humanitarian grounds could not be applied to other fatal crashes.She said if the Garda needed to raise revenue, this could be done instead from people convicted of breaching road traffic legislation.A Garda spokesman said the fees were originally set by the Department of Justice, to recoup the cost of providing such documents.The Department of Justice has said the charging of fees, and the appropriate level of those fees, are matters for the Garda authorities to decide.INISHOWEN CRASH FAMILIES MAY FACE BILL OF €10,000 EACH FOR GARDA DOCUMENTS was last modified: March 14th, 2016 by StephenShare 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:crashGARDA DOCUMENTSInishowenvictimslast_img read more

Woman kills self in Baramati, names CRPF man in suicide note

first_imgA Maharashtra Public Service Commission aspirant killed herself on July 20, 2017 in Baramati after blaming a Central Reserve Police Force commando and seven others in her suicide note, police has said. She had alleged mental harassment and blackmail among other reasons for her decision. The incident occurred in the evening of July 20, 2017, said the distraught kin of the woman. In a detailed and impassioned three-page note, the woman revealed she had known the CRPF commando for the past year-and-a-half and alleged that she had been lured into a physical relationship by him on false promises. The woman had accused others named in note of continuous blackmail and threat in the last three years.”They used to harass me at tuition classes and the academy with the baleful intention of coercing me into sexual relationship. They said they would tarnish my reputation… My loved ones are not aware of these events. I have been traumatised for the past several months… seek justice against those named in my letter,” reads the note.An officer with the Baramati Police Station said, “The girl apparently never confided in her parents about these events for fear of causing distress to them. We have lodged an FIR against those named in the suicide note and are probing the case to determine all angles.” Police have lodged an FIR under sections 306 (abetment of suicide) and 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) acting on a complaint lodged by the woman’s kin.last_img read more

Assam district clamps Section 144 for trucks

first_imgThe Goalpara district in western Assam is used to the imposition of Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure because of ethnic and communal flare-ups. Officials have now used the Section, primarily used to prohibit people from assembling in public places, to stop trucks from parking along a national highway bypassing district headquarters Goalpara, about 160 km west of Guwahati.“Apart from preventing unlawful assembly, Section 144 can be imposed to meet any emergency requirements. In this case, the order has been promulgated to prevent trucks from parking along the highway and causing inconvenience to the local people,” said Ghanshyam Dass, Goalpara’s deputy commissioner.The order, issued on May 21, was based on complaints from people residing along two stretches of the highway – Damra to Dudhnoi and Dhupdhara to Krishnai.District officials said imposing Section 144 specifically for trucks is not common, though the authorities in adjoining Meghalaya had once used the Section to stop overloading of trucks. The Goalpara district, central to the demand for a tribal (Rabha) council, has had a history of clashes between tribal and non-tribal people, specifically migrant Muslims. Six years ago, the district witnessed a conflict between the Rabhas and Garos, two tribal groups spread in parts of Assam and Meghalaya.last_img read more
