DESORMEAUX’S IRISH HEATWAVE TAKES ON FAMILIAR RIVALS AS HE HEADS SATURDAY’S $100,000 CALIFORNIA CUP TURF SPRINT AT 6 ½ FURLONGS DOWN SANTA ANITA’S HILLSIDE TURF RACE IS PART OF LUCRATIVE GOLDEN STATE SERIES FOR CALIFORNIA-BRED OR SIRED RUNNERSARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 22, 2019)–Trainer Keith Desormeaux’s late running Irish Heatwave will head a field of seven California-bred or sired sophomores at 6 ½ furlongs down Santa Anita’s hillside turf course in Saturday’s $100,000 California Cup Turf Sprint, which is a part of the lucrative Golden State Series.Primary among his competition are Reddam Racing’s homebred Listing, Academic Farms’ homebred Teacher’s Treasure and trainer Doug O’Neill’s Takeo Squared.IRISH HEATWAVEOwner:  Calumet FarmTrainer:  Keith DesormeauxA colt by legendary late stallion Unusual Heat, he comes off a gutty nose win over Listing down the hillside turf on Jan. 1.  A half length winner of a one mile turf maiden special weight versus state-breds two starts back on Nov. 3, he bids for his third consecutive win with apprentice Asa Espinoza up.  A late runner who’ll be making his fifth career start, Irish Heatwave could be victimized by what appears to a lack of pace in the Turf Sprint lineup.LISTINGOwner:  Reddam Racing, LLCTrainer:  Ben CecilBy Paul Reddam’s Square Eddie and out of his Yonaguska mare Marquis Diamond, Listing is the only horse in the field to have defeated Irish Heatwave, as he prevailed over his rival by 7 ½ lengths in the state-bred I’m Smokin Stakes, which was Listing’s first start on Aug. 31 at Del Mar.  By California’s current top stallion, look for Listing to bring his “A-Game” in the Turf Sprint, which will be his fifth career start.TEACHER’S TREASUREOwner:  Academic FarmsTrainer:  Eddie TrumanA chestnut gelding by Square Eddie, he’s done little wrong, finishing no worse than third in four starts.  Out of the Half Term mare Corissa’s Birthday, Teacher’s Treasure pressed the pace throughout and was third, beaten 1 ¼ lengths in a hillside turf allowance won by Irish Heatwave on Jan. 1 and certainly rates an upset chance with regular pilot Edgar Payeras back in the saddle.TAKEO SQUAREDOwner:  EC Racing, LLC, MyRacehorse.com, Lyle Egan and Steve RothblumTrainer:  Doug O’NeillFourth, beaten 2 ¼ lengths in the same hillside turf allowance that Irish Heatwave, Listing, Teacher’s Treasure and Offshore Affair exit, the same hillside allowance on New Year’s Da.  Takeo Squared, who was bred by EC Racing and Rothblum, is yet another gelded son of Square Eddie.  Devoid of early foot, he’ll hope to make his presence felt from off the pace in what will be his ninth career start.THE $100,000 CALIFORNIA CUP TURF SPRINT WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTS IN POST POSITION ORDERlast_img read more

Lucas Pérez: “We left with a bittersweet taste”

first_imgLucas Pérez is sweet. He has eleven goals in the First and is the most successful national scorer. It is an absolute success that has raised all expectations about him. No one remembers Munir or Calleri anymore. The only one that shadows him in the imaginary alavesista it is your partner and friend Joselu Mato.“The draw in Leganés is good but when we put ourselves ahead in minute 2 of the second part, we left with a bittersweet taste. I think it is a great point that brings us closer to the goal of permanence, “said the Punta Coruña. The week ends in a clash against Valencia in Mendizorroza. “Before our people we will try to win. In Mendi we are having a good season and now we start adding more than in the first round, “he added.The albiazul fans have been very nervous in recent weeks since Lucas sounded as a substitute for Dembélé for Barcelona. To have lost the Galician striker would have been a good economic operation (15 million euros) but Garitano’s team would have lost much edge.Lucas says that, in addition to Barça, he was able to go out to other teams who had asked about him but his decision was to continue in the Alavés. In the summer market, many things can happen but, in January, his approach was to continue in Vitoria and focus on the work he started there last July when he returned from England to make the preseason in the Basque capital.last_img read more

Serious hamstring injury rules Bravo out of Big Bash

first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia (CMC):West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo will require surgery on his injured hamstring, ruling him out of the remainder of Melbourne Renegades’ campaign in the Big Bash League here.The 33-year-old fell awkwardly as he attempted to field a delivery on the boundary during Thursday’s clash with Perth Scorchers at the Etihad Stadium, and lay on the ground afterwards clutching his left hamstring.Scans yesterday revealed a serious injury, with doctors recommending surgery.”Unfortunately, my Big Bash season is over, which is very disappointing,” Trinidadian Bravo said.”I’ll now have surgery and the rehabilitation to get me fit and playing at my best again. I want to thank all the Renegades fans for their support for me and I hope to see them again next season.”Bravo’s injury comes as a huge blow for Renegades, who were banking on his experience to propel them in the tournament. He played only two games, scoring 24 and 23 and taking two wickets.However, his 344 Twenty20s meant he was the franchise’s most experienced player, and they are likely to struggle in finding a suitable replacement.”It’s a huge blow. He’s one of the best all-rounders in the world,” Renegades captain Aaron Finch said.DAMAGING BLOW”It’s an unbelievably damaging blow for us, but also for him because we know how much he loves coming out here.”Veteran left-arm spinner Brad Hogg said it was now important that the remainder of the squad pulled their weight.”At the end of the day, you do lose players throughout the tournament. We’ve lost James Pattinson for the first couple of games, and that’s a big loss,” Hogg noted.”And that’s where the other guys have got to step up and play their roles. If you’re going to win the Big Bash, you’re going to require all 18 of the squad.”Bravo is the second West Indies player to be struck down by injury after women’s star Deandra Dottin suffered multiple fractures of her cheekbone in an on-field collision with Brisbane Heat teammate Laura Harris earlier this week.last_img read more

Liberia Targets ‘Gold’ in Sierra Leone Boxing Day, Kendema Mayor’s Marathon

first_imgLiberian track & field athletes in action and target at least three gold medals–Departs for Freetown, KendemaAt least four gold medals have been eyed by the Liberia’s Lone Star Track & Field Team in the Sierra Leone 2018 Traditional Boxing Day activities scheduled for December 23 – 26, 2018 in Freetown as well as the Kendema Mayor’s Marathon and Track & Field Tournament from December 30, 2018 – January 1, 2019 in Kendema, Sierra Leone.Head coach Samuel Cooper said ‘Team Liberia’ has upped her motivation and determination to increase the substance of medals to demonstrate further that the country is not a ‘mere participant’ which has been for the past four years.Athletes pose for photo after trainingA 20-person delegation, comprising 15 athletes, is expected to depart the country early today, hopefully by 6:00 a.m., for a one-day road trip to Freetown, Sierra Leone to participate in two competitions in Freetown and Kendema respectively.Coach Cooper told the Daily Observer yesterday via mobile phone that the Liberian athletes will participate in at least nine events; 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 5000m, Long Jump, High Jump, and Shot Put.The athletes are  Nancy Saah ( 100m/200m/Long Jump);  Otricia Borkuah (High Jump/100m); Philip Lademo (400m); Andrew Kpehe (1500m/ 5000m); and Marcox Sackie (800m); Charles Gbelia (100m/200m/ Shot Put); Lydia Gbar (800m/ 15000m); and Harris Melemore (5000m).Other athletes include Abraham Davis (400m); Tonita Dahn (100m/200m); Tracy Chayee (100m/200m); Emmanuel Kartus (100m/Long Jump); Edwin Derkiah (100m/200m); Cornelius Pennoh (Long Jump) and J.

Zoegar Wilson and Assistant Minister for Sport James Toe in separate remarks, extended their “thanks and appreciation” to the team.The Ministers made the statements when the LAF formally presented ‘Athletic Team Liberia’ and the ‘Medals.’Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

GRA strengthens enforcement in Bartica

first_imgThe Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) is in the process of relocating its office in Bartica to a more full-fledged location within the town, since it aims to improve the standards of taxpayers’ service and by extension, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni).Commissioner General of GRA, Godfrey Statia and team in discussion with Region Seven REO, Roderick Edinboro along with staffThe GRA’s Commissioner General, Godfrey Statia, lead a group of tax officials on Thursday last to the site which is the proposed new location for the tax office at Fifth Avenue, Bartica. This is where the Authority intends to begin its operations officially as from November this year, and in addition, the new location will also include among other things, living quarters for some senior staff, allowing them to have less rental rates and other related expenses.This move is in keeping with the agenda of strengthening tax compliance and enforcement activities countrywide, beginning with improvements of the existing Integrated Regional Tax Offices (IRTOs), together with the soon-to-be functional Mabaruma office. Existing IRTOs are located at Anna Regina, Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam); Parika, East Bank Essequibo, Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara); New Amsterdam and Corriverton, in Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne); Bartica; Region Seven; Lethem, in Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo); and Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice).An initial assessment was done at the aforementioned locations and from this, it was determined that despite earlier efforts to provide a one-stop-shop at these sites, improvements were necessary in terms of a more enabling environment for staff and building capacity for the benefit of taxpayers who would otherwise have to travel to Georgetown for some services. It was also discovered that in order to be effective, regional offices must not only be equipped to offer complete taxpayer services but also be able to conduct audits and investigations in relation to economic activities by individual and corporate taxpayers in the said localities.The GRA is of the view that this resourcefulness is very timely, in light of the attainment of Bartica’s township status back in 2016, and the continued anticipated growth in economic activities and revenue flows. The Bartica IRTO is currently located at First Avenue, where it had commenced operations in 2007 before it was declared an IRTO under the Integrated Regional Offices initiative in 2008.Several meetings were held by the GRA’s team together with the Regional Executive Officer (REO), Roderick Edinboro, in which plans and strategies were outlined for the region. Additionally, a new office will be commissioned by the GRA in Mabaruma, Region One within a few months, which is the first of its kind in the region.last_img read more
