IN A THRILLER, GIFT BOX DEFEATS McKINZIE BY A NOSE IN GRADE I, $600,000 SANTA ANITA HANDICAP

first_imgIN A THRILLER, GIFT BOX DEFEATS McKINZIE BY A NOSE IN GRADE I, $600,000 SANTA ANITA HANDICAP; RIDDEN BY ROSARIO, HE GIVES SADLER HIS SECOND BIG ‘CAP VICTORY IN A ROW, COVERING 1 ¼ MILES IN 2:03.02 ON A STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL AFTERNOON, HUGE PERFORMANCES IN THE SANTA ANITA DERBY & THE BIG ‘CAP WOW AN ON-TRACK CROWD OF 30,713 ARCADIA, Calif. (April 6, 2019)–On a stunningly beautiful day at Santa Anita, the 82nd running of the iconic track’s signature race for older horses, the Grade I, $600,000 Santa Anita Handicap, developed into a thrilling stretch battle between the two principles in today’s affair, John Sadler’s Gift Box and Bob Baffert’s McKinzie.  In the end, it was Joel Rosario and Gift Box by a nose over Mike Smith and McKinzie, with the gray Gift Box stopping the clock in 2:03.02 for a mile and a quarter.With longshot Prime Attraction showing the way into the Club House turn, Gift Box and McKinzie were in close attendance, no more than a length and a half off the early lead.  Mid-way around the far turn, Rosario, who had his mount well in-hand, cruised to the lead past Prime Attraction a quarter mile out and was immediately engaged to his outside by McKinzie.From the three sixteenths pole home, it was a classic head and head battle that had all 30,713 on-track fans enthralled and yes, if even for a couple minutes, maybe far removed from the weight of an onslaught of bad news primarily wrought by a wet winter.“It was a good race,” said Rosario.  “He broke perfect out of there and John told me to keep him close and when he wants to go, maybe follow someone…It was a good race turning for home.  I knew McKinzie was coming for us in the last part…He showed a lot of heart today and I have to thank Hronis Racing for the opportunity and to John.”For Sadler and owner Hronis Brothers Racing, LLC, it was their second Big ‘Cap win in a row, having won it last year with eventual Older Horse of the Year Accelerate.Originally based in New York, Gift Box, a 6-year-old horse by Twirling Candy, out of the Unbridled’s Song mare Special Me, had been idle since his first Southern California start, a half length win in the Grade II, 1 1/16 miles San Antonio Stakes on Dec. 26.“This is very special,” said Sadler.  “I grew up with this race, to win it two years in a row is incredible.  I came here as a kid with Lou Rowan (owner/breeder and original board member of the Oak Tree Racing Assoiciation) when Quicken Tree won the Big ‘Cap (1970), so it means a great deal to me.“Joel rode a great race, you could see he had a lot of horse around the turn and he was just sitting on him.  To beat a top horse like McKinzie in a photo like that…We needed it because we lost that tough photo last week (with Catapult, who was beaten a nose by longshot Ohio in the Grade I Frank E. Kilroe Mile).  This was the plan when we bought this horse and it happened.  We couldn’t be happier.”Off as the 2-1 second choice in a field of six, Gift Box, in his first Grade I win, paid $6.20, $2.40 and $2.20.  With the winner’s share of $355,000, he hiked his earnings to $879,160 and improved his overall mark to 15-5-5-2.For his part, McKinzie lost nothing by way of stature in defeat as he was 3 ¾ lengths clear of longshot Mongolian Groom.  Off as the 2-5 favorite, 4-year-old McKinzie, who carried top weight of 123 pounds while spotting the winner one pound, paid $2.10 and $2.10.Ridden by Geovanni Franco, Mongolian Groom, off at 53-1, paid $3.40 to show.Fractions on the race were 24.24, 49.03, 1:13.70 and 1:38.37.Although Baffert was denied his sixth Big ‘Cap win, he took his record ninth Grade I Santa Anita Derby two races earlier, as Roadster upset his stablemate Game Winner by a half length in a thrilling stretch run that barring something unforeseen, should propel both colts to center stage in next month’s Kentucky’s Derby.Racing resumes with a nine-race card on Sunday.  First post time is at 1 p.m. and admission gates open at 11 a.m.last_img read more

Police hunting for man who raped 82-year-old in Linden

first_img…13 men wanted for sexual offences – Commander Police are on the hunt for a man who sexually assaulted an 82-year-old woman and then told her that he would bring her some money the following day to help her with expenses.According to a police source, both the suspect and the victim reside in Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice), and are known to each other. Following the incident, the woman reported the matter to the police and the suspect was taken into custody. However, after the 72-hour holding period had expired, Police released the man on station bail as they awaited legal advice.“We had the guy, we were done with the statement and the report. We sent for legal advice and so on, the file came back, and we were advised to charge him. But that 72-hour was up and we had to let him go on cash bail, and now he cannot be found but we will continue to search until we find him,” a police source told this publication.Wanted: Winston Rodney called “Skinny”Meanwhile, Commander of E Division (Linden-Kwakwani), Senior Superintendent Linden Lord when contacted confirmed that his ranks are in pursuit of the suspect.He added that the suspect is one of 13 men that the police in that Division are on the hunt for in relation to sexual offences.“We have 13 people, including him that raped the grandmother, on a list that has been prepared; a wanted bulletin list, and all of them have to be charged. All those 13 files were sent for legal advice and the advice given was that each of them to be charged for their individual offences. These 13 persons are from cases as recent as a few weeks ago and dates back to 2017,” he explained.Crucial collaborationAccording to Commander Lord, the ranks in the Division are working to ensure that they clamp down on the prevalence of sexual offences in Region 10 and at the same time in helping to bring justice to victims. He added that collaboration and cooperation from all stakeholders are crucial.“I think that the most serious crimes that we have in this Division are with children…it is there and the records show this, you cannot deviate from, we are not getting the amount in other crimes. But we are trying to sensitise communities, schools, children etc as much as possible. Ranks from the Sexual Offences Unit usually have talks with school children of all ages and this is a regular feature so we continue to try to eradicate this,” he added.Just recently, in Region 10, a five-year-old boy was sexually assaulted 35-year-old Winston Rodney called “Skinny”, who also is presently on the run from the police.Reports are that between July 1 and July 31, the village of Kwakwani, Region 10 was hit by flooding and the suspect along with the little boy were alone in a boat traversing the community when the child was raped.In that instance also, the suspect was arrested for the offence, but when the file was eventually returned with the instructions to charge the suspect, the mandatory 72-hour holding period had already expired.Although ranks immediately went in search of Rodney at his given address and combed the village for the rape suspect, he was nowhere to be found.A wanted bulletin was subsequently issued for Rodney.last_img read more

Jordan, Trotman should be jailed over stashing ‘signing bonus’ from public – Dr Ramsaroop

first_imgThe buck stops at the head and the revelation that the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition Administration secretly accepted and stashed billions in a private account, unknown to the Guyanese public, is “downright criminal, immoral and unethical” – a matter that requires the attention and full-fledged investigation by the Guyana Police Force.Economic Advisor to the Opposition Leader, Dr Peter Ramsaroop, laid the damning charges on Tuesday during an interview with Guyana Times, suggesting that the only way for Head of State David Granger to regain even a minutia of credibility, is to immediately fire the Ministers of Finance and Natural Resources, Winston Jordan and Raphael Trotman.He told this publication that both Ministers should be placed before the courts over the flagrant violation of Guyana’s supreme law, the Constitution.The financial analyst pointed to Article 216 of the Guyana Constitution which dictates that all public revenue be placed in the Consolidated Fund with the exception being where a specific law allows for the money to be placed in a special account.“None of this happened, there is no law as yet for the receipt of monies from Guyana’s oil revenues, we keep hearing of Sovereign Wealth Fund but we are yet to see any legislative instruments to give effect…this is all downright criminal,” according to Dr Ramsaroop.He said “the growing list of scandals and downright corrupt practices of this PNC-led Government is enough for the people of this country to stand up and demand their removal from office even before 2020.”According to Dr Ramsaroop, democratic norms dictate that “we await general elections in 2020 but with this Government’s machinations at the Guyana Elections Commission along with its penchant for spending taxpayers’ dollars in secret, one need not leave to the imagination their intentions for revenues to be had from Guyana’s oil and gas sector.”The economic advisor suggested that this could very well be the motivation behind the Speaker of the National Assembly’s biased and most revealing ruling in the House thus far.Dr Ramsaroop was at the time drawing reference to the expulsion of People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Member of Parliament Juan Edghill.According to the advisor, while the Speaker is within his right to suspend any member of the House, his reasons are suspect.“All the Opposition wanted was more time to scrutinise the spending by the most bloated Ministry in Government, the Ministry of the Presidency,” he posited.According to Dr Ramsaroop, the ruckus that was created and fuelled further by the Speaker’s intransigence was just another attempt to “pull wool over the eyes of the Guyanese people.”The economic advisor to the Opposition Leader maintains that “the only reason the Speaker gave instructions which implied calling in the Police was meant to serve as a distraction.”He told this publication “this Government is fully aware that a great many Guyanese can be easily distracted by sensational news.” Dr Ramsaroop told this publication it is no coincidence that the ruckus created in Parliament on Monday occurred as the Opposition was preparing to scrutinise the money it has in its allocations for 2018 and the fact that it received $3.6 billion would have no doubt been under intense probity.“They did not want this…had that information never been leaked, this country would have been none the wiser and the apologists instead of confronting the issue and at the very least call on Government to apologise to this nation have instead resorted to distractions.”The economic advisor told this publication that he will be pushing the PPP to file private criminal charges against Ministers Jordan and Trotman.“The Speaker is supposed to protect the interest of all elected representatives especially those that form the minority in a National Assembly but in this case we have a Speaker who is openly biased against the PPP and has in fact clearly demonstrated that he will use his office to further the agenda of the PNC-led Granger Government.”According to Dr Ramsaroop, “we will have to go to the courts but even there we have some reservations as a result of the slothfulness of the system and the fact that Judges are now being handpicked.”The economic advisor told Guyana Times that “the future of this country is literally at stake here.”Drawing reference to the Guyanese adage “you don’t put cat to watch milk”, Dr Ramsaroop said it is time a mostly docile population come to the realisation that the country is at a turning point in its history – a turning point that will require competent and honest leadership.“Guyanese people are not fools,” he said and pointed to the fact that several Government spokespersons in recent years have repeatedly accused the PPP Administration of corrupt practices but after audit after audit costing taxpayers’ millions of dollars the Administration is yet to have one allegation of corrupt PPP officials being successfully prosecuted.”He noted that in contrast, the David Granger Administration has been racking up scandal after scandal – scandals that the supporters of the APNU/AFC are now openly complaining over.“These people have already demonstrated an authoritarian approach in its management of this country and the fact that they have now begun secretly accessing money from Guyana’s oil reserve should serve to wake up Guyanese people.”He concluded his scathing criticism of the coalition Administration’s handling of the signing bonus saying, “imagine we haven’t even started to produce oil as yet but this Government has already begun hiding from the Guyanese people, revenues it has begun receiving for the national patrimony.”Dr Ramsaroop was adamant “this Government cannot be trusted to steer us into an oil economy.”last_img read more

Newcastle star almost joined Porto last summer

first_imgNewcastle striker Ayoze Perez almost joined Porto in the summer, instead of the in-form Magpies.The 21-year-old has the scored the winner for Alan Pardew’s side in their last two Premier League matches with Tottenham and Liverpool both being crushed by the exciting young Spaniard.Newcastle payed Tenerife around £1.9m for the forward in the summer and he is already well on his way to repaying them by firing them away from the relegation zone and lifting the mood around St James’ Park after supporters campaigned against Pardew.But it could have been very different if the Portuguese giants – who could have guaranteed Perez Champions League football – completed the deal to sign the goal scorer.“I was very close to signing for Porto,” Perez said. “But for some small details we could not close the deal. Newcastle is now enhancing the way I play.” 1 Ayoze Perez in action for Newcastle last_img read more
