Start with fit Awesome Destiny

first_img (1) AWESOME DESTINY (2) SUPERTRONICS/MAN IN BLUE (3) BIG GEORGE (4) SUB STRUCTURE (5) BATTLE SONG/CLEARLY OURS (6) GOLDEN GLORY BIGGEORGE TIPPED TO WIN BIG GEORGE, with four-time champion Omar Walker riding for DaCosta, has won two of his last three races and is tipped to repeat in the third race over the straight for four-year-olds and up. He represents the in-form horse in a small field of six, and despite the presence of the recent course winner ANOTHER BULLET and lightly weighted COME DANCE WITH ME. BIG GEORGE, however, has most appeal with only 53.0kg. Having dropped two classes to contest the fourth race (claiming $180,000) over 1000 metres round, SUB STRUCTURE, with Nelson aboard, should score an overdue win at the expense of the fleet-footed CLASSICAL TRAIN in the field of 12. The last two races in the first SUPER-6 should be won by BATTLE SONG (loves the straight) under in-form Aaron Chatrie and GOLDEN GLORY (Odean Edwards up) to beat his improving stable-companion CLASSY AVIATOR (Chatrie up) in the sixth race over 1400 metres for maiden three-year-olds. FIRST SUPER-6 FANCIES The Pick-9 had no takers at Caymanas Park last Saturday, and the carry-over to tomorrow’s meet stands at $1.2 million. Both Super-6s were caught by punters and start anew with guaranteed minimums of $750,000. The first Super-6 is from race one to six; the late Super-6 from five to 10. We look at the first Super-6, which commences with a restricted allowance race over 1500 metres, confined to native and imported three-year-olds, to be contested by seven starters. The ones expected to figure seriously are recent winner WILL IN CHARGE under leading jockey Dane Nelson; the American filly AWESOME DESTINY with champion jockey Shane Ellis riding for trainer Gary Subratie, and MY COMPANION, who will now have the services of 3.0kg claiming apprentice Odean Edwards after flopping behind ORPHEUS in the Sir Howard Stakes over 1200 metres last Saturday. AWESOME DESTINY was all the rage (3-5 favourite) on her debut over 1200 metres some weeks ago but could only manage third, beaten three lengths by CRUISING MOTION. Now better for the experience and the longer trip to her liking, AWESOME DESTINY is expected to recoup losses despite the presence of the Robert Pearson-trained native-bred colt WILL IN CHARGE, who looked improved when scoring over a mile in the good time of 1:40.3. AWESOME DESTINY should chase the expected leader STUNNER before going through approaching the home turn and holding WILL IN CHARGE at bay. SUPERTRONICS, to be ridden by Robert Halledeen for champion trainer Wayne DaCosta, went down fighting against the speedy YOGA recently and gets a glorious chance to go one better in the second race, a 4-y-o-and-up restricted allowance over 1100 metres (non-winners of two) in which eight will run. SUPERTRONICS has been knocking loudly at the door in recent weeks and should now win from MAN IN BLUE and BIMINI.last_img read more

Just for me to consider being able to take it is really humbling,” he said. “But my concentration right now is on our team to move to the semis. I’ll be able to think about it over the Holy Week, hopefully.”UE, however, has Paulo Hubalde on its side as the guard has been vehemently persuading Gavina to take the job, which has definitely piqued the Fil-Am mentor’s interest.“I’ve been really asking about the program. Paulo Hubalde is one of my players in Team Valenzuela and he’s really breaking down of how culture was back then and how things have kinda changed,” he said. “He’s trying to push me towards the direction of taking it. It’s kinda a one-sided conversation with him. Like I said, I’m weighing out a lot of options and see where we’ll go from there.”Gavina ended: “It’s just a matter of really just timing. If I had really the time to just focus on that, I think I’d be able to make a quicker decision. But with the MPBL playoffs going on, I kind of spending a lot of time with game preparation. One thing at a time.”ADVERTISEMENT Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew “Let’s just say it was presented to me,” he shared on Friday after coaching in the 2018 Darlington NBTC Division 1 All-Star Game.“Am I gonna take it?

If I feel as if it’s an opportunity for me to turn a program or culture around like I have been in Team Valenzuela for the MPBL, coaching is all about being able to make an impact on young players’ lives, so if I get that opportunity, then I’ll definitely consider it.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkGavina has emerged as of the contenders to take over for the Red Warriors post after getting into talks with some of the school’s officials last week.But the former Kia mentor clarified that he hasn’t accepted anything yet as his focus remains with the Valenzuela Classic in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League.center_img MOST READ In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery Cabuyao City rising above the ashes through volunteerism Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine Dies

first_imgThe late Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine, former Liberty Party standard bearer…A statesman and politician Reliable Information that reached this newspaper late last night confirmed the death of Counselor Charles Walker Brumskine, former standard bearer of the opposition Liberty Party and senior partner, of Brumskine & Associates, following a protracted illness.He was in his 69th year.Up to press time last night, social media comments poured in from all over, including the ones from some of his political allies, expressing condolences to the bereaved family, as well as wishing the deceased to also rest in peace (R.I.P.).Cllr. Brumskine, who has been ill for quite some time, reportedly died at the John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland (USA). However, family sources and some of Brumskine’s friends, who confirmed news of his death on their respective facebook pages said he died at home.One account said Brumskine left the hospital months ago, and was being treated at his home in Virginia, USA, but a source said he was rushed back to the hospital when his condition worsened until doctors pronounced him dead late yesterday.Grand Bassa County, Senator and LP political leader, Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence, the person in whose charge Cllr. Brumskine left the party after losing the 2017 presidential elections, also confirmed his death.She added, “The LP founder, and former political leader has lost his fight to stay alive.” She described the late Brumskine as a “dedicated family man, lawyer and politician, who will be missed by all.”The LP, through the National Executive Committee confirmed in October this year that Cllr. Brumskine was flown to the United States for treatment of a cancer disease that afflicted him over the years.“The LP Executive Committee, through the office of Senator Karnga-Lawrence, informs its partisans, well-wishers and the general public that its former political leader and former standard-bearer, Brumskine, is not well, but was seeking medical treatment abroad as the party seeks the special grace of God upon him.”Cllr. Brumskine, who contested the presidency thrice, came to political prominence in the 1990s as an ally of former President Charles Ghankay Taylor. When Taylor was elected President in 1997, Brumskine became President Pro Tempore of the Senate.By 1999, he and Taylor fell apart following a feud to the point that Brumskine fled the country after being reportedly threatened by Taylor’s supporters.He returned to Liberia in 2003 with plans to run in the scheduled 2003 presidential election, but that plan was aborted when the announced election was canceled.In 2004, Brumskine campaigned for the 2005 elections, receiving nearly 14% of the vote; 6% less than the second-place candidate, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, and therefore, he was not able to participate in the runoff that ended between Sirleaf and then UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador (now President) George Manneh Weah.Due to his popularity in the first round, Brumskine could have significantly influenced the run-off had he endorsed either candidate. He decided not to endorse Sirleaf or her opponent, Mr. Weah, in the runoff.Six years later, Cllr. Brumskine again contested the 2011 elections, this time with Bong County Senator Franklin Obed Siakor as his running mate.In the 2017 elections, Cllr. Brumskine in his third attempt, with Mr. Harrison Sam Karnwea as his running mate, tallied 149,495 votes for 9.6 percent, putting him third in the race.At the end of the 2017 presidential elections, Cllr. Brumskine led the charge, protesting the results as the Supreme Court halted preparations for the presidential run-off vote between Weah and former Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai, until it considered a challenge to the first round results by a losing candidate, who alleged fraud.At the end of the litigation, many hailed his mastery of the law, though he remained the senior partner of Brumskine & Associates, a leading Liberian law firm.Meanwhile, funeral arrangements and other details of Cllr. Brumskine’s death will be announced later.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

FSJ Sets Record Temperature

first_imgPhoto: A haze hangs over the Peace River on Thursday August 7th, 2008 – Adam Reaburn/Energeticcity.caIt was only by four-fifths of a degree but Fort St. John established a new record high August 6th temperature yesterday. The official high reading was 30.8 degrees, breaking the old record set in 1945. However, to break today’s 1945 record we’ll need to do better than that because it is 32.8 degrees. Meantime, the B-C government has some ambitious new goals for cutting air pollution. The government’s Climate Action Team is recommending greenhouse gas emissions must be reversed and, start to fall significantly, by 2012. The team says the emissions should also be slashed, by 18 per cent below last year’s levels, by 2016. Premier Gordon Campbell says the targets will help the province achieve its previously stated aim, of cutting harmful air pollution by 33 percent, by 2020.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Chelsea star WILL be on Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi’s level one day, claims former Blue

first_imgFormer Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer believes Eden Hazard WILL be classed in the same bracket as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the future.The Blues star is widely expected to be named the PFA Player of the Year, following a stellar season for Jose Mourinho’s side.Brazil legend Pele claimed earlier in the week the Belgian flyer would be able to break into Ronaldo and Messi’s bracket once he had consistently performed at the highest level.And Schwarzer, who played with Hazard during his time at Stamford Bridge, agrees that the 24-year-old is heading for greatness.“Who are we to argue with Pele? I have to agree with him,” the Leicester goalkeeper said, when asked about Hazard’s comparisons to the top two players in the world.“He’s still got some way to go but he’s a phenomenal player. This season alone the step up from last season, in term of his consistency and level of play, has been extraordinary.“If he keeps doing what he’s doing then there’s no doubt in my mind that he’ll be able to be compared with Messi and Ronaldo.”last_img read more
