    first_imgLIEUTENANT DAN, WOUND TIGHT & BRANDOTHEBARTENDER PROMINENT IN WIDE OPEN FIELD OF 10 GOING 5 ½ FURLONGS ON TURF IN SUNDAY’S $100,000 SENSATIONAL STAR STAKES RACE IS PART OF LUCRATIVE GOLDEN STATE SERIES FOR CALIFORNIA-BRED OR SIRED HORSES ARCADIA, Calif. (March 19, 2020)–In a wide open affair that has attracted 10 older California-bred or sired horses (with one on the also eligible), the quintet of Lieutenant Dan, Wound Tight, Brandothebartender, Castle and Tigre Di Slugo all figure prominently in Sunday’s $100,000 Sensational Star Stakes at 5 ½ furlongs over the Santa Anita turf.Trained by Steve Miyadi, Lieutenant Dan comes off a big second on dirt in the Cal Cup Sprint while classy Wound Tight, a romping Cal-bred stakes winner routing two starts back for Bob Hess, Jr., shortens up out of seven consecutive routes.Brandothebartender, trained by Craig Dollase, exits a solid second in a second condition allowance over the course and Mark Glatt’s Castle, idle since Dec. 29, took a Cal-bred stakes over the course two starts back.Throw in Mike Puype’s late blooming Tigre Di Slugo, who will try turf for the first time after toying with state-bred allowance foes last month and it’s readily apparent Sunday’s Sensational Star shapes up as a terrific betting race. Puype will also be represented by Stealthediamonds, who exits a gate to wire victory over the course in the Sunshine Millions Filly & Mare Turf Sprint on Jan. 18. The lone distaffer in the lineup, she’ll be facing males for the first time in her 18th career start.The Sensational Star is part of the lucrative Golden State Series, sponsored by the CTBA for California-bred or sired horses.LIEUTENANT DANOwner:  Nick AlexanderTrainer:  Steve MiyadiA game second, beaten a neck by repeat stakes winner Fashionably Fast in the Cal Cup Sprint on dirt Jan. 18, this 4-year-old homebred Grazen gelding is two-time stakes placed versus state-breds routing and was a state-bred stakes winner sprinting on dirt here 11 months ago. Headquartered at Los Alamitos, “Dan” has four wins from 11 starts and should be extremely tough with Drayden Van Dyke set to ride him back.WOUND TIGHTOwner:  Matt NelsonTrainer:  Bob Hess, Jr.Can he sprint? Although this homebred 5-year-old gelding is by top sprinter Coil, Wound Tight is winless in two career tries sprinting–once on dirt and once on grass.  Most recently a well beaten third in a 1 1/8 mile turf allowance Feb. 29, it would seem Wound Tight will need some serious pace pressure to facilitate his chances on Sunday.  With an overall mark of 11-4-2-3, he’s never been offered for a tag and will get the services of Rafael Bejarano.BRANDOTHEBARTENDEROwner:  Flawless Racing, Brian Flanagan & Michael JarvisTrainer:  Craig DollaseIn a big effort, this 7-year-old Tribal Rule gelding rallied late to finish second, beaten three quarters of a length over the course in a second condition allowance Feb. 23.  Third in last year’s Sensational Star and a Cal-bred stakes winner on turf, “Brando” retains the services of the meet’s leading turf rider Umberto Rispoli and rates a huge chance on Sunday.CASTLEOwner:  Where We AtTrainer:  Mark GlattClaimed three starts back for $40,000, this 7-year-old gelding by Slew’s Tiznow went gate to wire to win the California Flag Handicap by a neck in his next start here on Oct. 19.  A close fourth in a second condition allowance over the course Dec. 29, he enters the Sensational Star fresh and dangerous with six wins (four on turf) from 15 overall starts.TIGRE DI SLUGOOwner:  Slugo Racing, Tiger Racing Stable, LLC & Mike Puype                  Trainer:  Mike PuypeLate getting to the races, this 5-year-old full horse by Smiling Tiger was a gutty first-out maiden winner going 5 ½ furlongs on dirt Nov. 15 at Del Mar and then was a well beaten third by repeat winner Principe Carlo in a first condition allowance versus state-breds here on Jan. 18 as the 9-5 favorite.  Off as the 2-1 choice at the same condition going six furlongs on Feb. 16, he didn’t disappoint, as he drew off to a facile 2 ¼ length win.  With regular rider Flavien Prat back aboard, he’ll get tested for class as he tries turf of the first time in his fourth career start.THE $100,000 SENSATIONAL STAR STAKES WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTS IN POST POSITION ORDERRace 8 of 9   Approximate post time 4 p.m. PT Grinning Tiger–Ruben Fuentes–122Wound Tight–Rafael Bejarano–124Brandothebartender–Umberto Rispoli–122Just Grazed Me–Geovanni Franco–119Tigre Di Slugo–Flavien Prat–120The Hunted–Mario Gutierrez–124Lieutenant Dan–Drayden Van Dyke–124Castle–Abel Cedillo–124Stealthediamonds–Agapito Delgadillo–119Loud Mouth–Tiago Pereira–122ALSO ELIGIBLE11.

  • TWP Endorsement of CDC Backfires

    first_imgMontserrado County chairman for the True Whig Party, C.T.O KingA decision by the national chairman of the erstwhile grand old True Wing Party (TWP) to endorse the opposition Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) for the December 26 run-off election has been challenged by an executive of the party.On Tuesday, Reginald Goodridge announced his party’s decision to support the CDC in line with their platform to unseat the ruling Unity Party (UP) of Vice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai.The party’s Montserrado County chairman, C.T.O King, who vehemently disagreed with Goodridge’s decision, described the action as “unilateral.”In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer on Tuesday, King argued that the party’s executive committee did not sanction Goodridge’s decision, thereby making it unofficial.“I have the endorsement of the executive committee to speak on behalf of the party against the fake one Goodridge announced to the CDC,” King declared.“Our constitution provides that any decision of the party must be firstly approved by the executive committee and not a single person like Mr. Goodridge,” King said.He clarified that the TWP executive committee has not made any decision as to which party to support during the pending runoff presidential election.“We have partisans all over the county, and if we want to make any decision, it should be done in consultation with them, but not by an individual like Goodridge,” King said.“Goodridge’s action is unconstitutional, so I urge the CDC leadership not to take it serious by doing any business with Mr. Goodridge in the name of the party,” King warned.King recalled how Goodridge exercised a similar unilateral decision when he singlehandedly endorsed the standard bearer of the party during the October 10 presidential and legislative elections.“We challenged that decision at the National Elections Commission (NEC), which resulted to the electoral body denying the party from producing a standard bearer at the just ended presidential and legislative elections,” King said.While Goodridge was yet to respond to the issue, King said the matter was still undecided at the NEC.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Liberia: New Government Risks Making an Enemy Out of the Media

    first_imgPresident George Weah at the opening ceremony of a summit meeting at the African Union, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Jan. 28, 2018 (AP photo by Mulugeta Ayene). By Robbie Corey-Boulet, Senior Editor (World Politics Review)In February, former president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf was awarded the prestigious $5 million Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership, becoming the fifth winner since the prize was established in 2007.It was the latest in a long line of honors acknowledging her efforts to rehabilitate Liberia’s democracy after more than a decade of civil conflict.In the eyes of pro-democracy activists, however, Sirleaf’s record was far from perfect. One of the most commonly cited weak spots was her commitment to freedom of the press. Her time in office certainly represented an improvement over that of her predecessor, the warlord-turned-president Charles Taylor, who had no tolerance for independent reporting.But during Sirleaf’s 12 years in office, her government failed to reform libel laws that led to the jailing of journalists and the shuttering of publications. Moreover, Freedom House consistently rated the media environment under Sirleaf as only “partly free,” citing frequent cases of intimidation and arbitrary arrests.Yet three months into the term of her successor, the soccer star-turned-politician George Weah, Liberian journalists could be forgiven for wondering if Sirleaf’s presidency will represent a high-water mark in terms of the space they’re given to do their work. That’s because, in recent weeks, two high-profile confrontations have highlighted hostility toward the press on the part of the new administration, including from Weah himself—an especially worrying development, given that the country’s United Nations peacekeeping mission recently closed its doors, depriving journalists of a powerful ally.The first incident involves the newspaper FrontPage Africa, which was founded in 2005 and consistently publishes the most aggressive reporting in the country. According to the Committee to Protect Journalists or CPJ, the paper was recently slapped with a $1.8 million lawsuit over an allegedly defamatory advertisement concerning land administration. Moreover, on April 9, while delivering a summons related to the case, authorities “briefly detained at least seven journalists” and temporarily closed the newsroom, CPJ said.One of the plaintiffs in the case is a man with ties to Weah’s political party, the Coalition for Democratic Change, or CDC. The CPJ also noted that Jefferson Koijee, the mayor of Monrovia, the capital, and a member of the CDC, publicly criticized FrontPage Africa for “unprofessional attacks on the presidency” before the summons was issued. Rodney Sieh, FrontPage Africa’s publisher, has said he suspects the paper is being targeted because of its critical coverage, noting that other papers that ran the same advertisement have yet to face any repercussions. The case has echoes of one that unfolded in 2013 when Sieh was jailed for nearly three months over a libel judgment stemming from FrontPage Africa’s reporting about a government minister.The government has denied any involvement in this new case, saying it relates to a private matter. But there’s no question about the state’s involvement in the second incident that has raised alarm in Liberian media circles, as it was initiated by the president himself.On March 22, during a joint press conference with U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed at Liberia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Weah fielded a question from Jonathan Paye-Layleh, the longtime Liberian correspondent for the BBC and Associated Press, about efforts to prosecute those who committed wartime atrocities. Weah’s response began with a boilerplate, if faltering, endorsement of the rule of law before taking an unexpectedly confrontational turn. Addressing Paye-Layleh directly, Weah said, “When I was advocating for human rights in the country, you were one person that was against me.” He offered no explanation.There were signs early on in George Weah’s political career that he might try to exert undue influence over what journalists publish.According to Paye-Layleh, a former colleague of mine at the AP in West Africa, the episode did not end there. He says that when he sought clarification from the government, he “came under verbal attacks from the president’s supporters.” Three days after the press conference, Weah’s office issued a statement featuring the bizarre claim that while Weah, who spent most of the war years playing soccer for European teams, was trying to bring attention to human rights abuses committed in his home country, Paye-Layleh was “bent on undermining his efforts by depicting a positive image of the carnage.”The Press Union of Liberia responded with a statement accusing Weah of “tearing down one of Liberia’s revered journalists in the eye of the world.” More broadly, the statement lamented “the speed at which the Executive Mansion is fast leading the reverse of gains made on journalists’ safety.”Taken together, these incidents do raise legitimate questions about Weah’s willingness to allow journalists to report freely. Given that he’s spent most of his life in the public eye, including more than a decade as a politician, his antagonistic stance toward Paye-Layleh is particularly odd. “One would have thought that after 12 years of being in opposition, with some of the negative press that Weah received, he would have been prepared to engage more maturely with the media,” says Aaron Weah, a Liberian political analyst who is not related to the president. “I’m a little surprised that Weah has not understood the orientation of the Liberian media. Historically, the media is always regime critical.”There were signs earlier in George Weah’s political career that he might try to exert undue influence over what journalists publish. During the 2011 election, for example, when Weah was running for vice president on the CDC’s ticket, the BBC covered a campaign rally in the northern city of Ganta during which a CDC vehicle struck a bystander, leaving him “covered in blood.” Apparently worried about how the story would play out, Weah called a local journalist over and, according to the BBC, forced him to delete photos of the victim—“or else deal with his security men.”The worry now is that, with Weah installed at the Executive Mansion, there are few checks on this type of behavior. For his part, Weah has pushed back against claims that he wants to stifle freedom of expression in the country. In a statement about the FrontPage Africa case, the Ministry of Information said the president would work to “decriminalize speech offenses” to give media outlets “protection against closures and arrests.” His government has also vowed to investigate the recent killing of Tyron Brown, a video editor with a private broadcasting company who was found stabbed to death in a suburb of Monrovia; there were no immediate indications that Brown had been targeted for his work.Yet in a recent meeting with Liberian media executives, Weah also offered clues that tensions between his government and the media are likely to persist, in no small part because, in his mind, it is the job of journalists to publicize his good works. “While it is true the media and journalists are at liberty to write and criticize in whatever way they see,” he said, “it is also incumbent of the media to mention the achievements of the government.”Souce: World Politics ReviewShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Producers preparing for strike

    first_imgOlder battles also remain to be resolved, including the revision of a decades-old formula for compensating writers for work that appears on DVD. “There’s no question in my mind this is not simply about emerging technology, but the perception that the guilds pretty much got screwed in previous negotiations in what were then emerging technologies,” TV writer and producer Steven Bochco said. “All the guilds feel strongly that they don’t want to be caught in a position that doesn’t anticipate rapidly shifting technological advancements that leave them high and dry.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Among the shows accelerating production is NBC’s “Las Vegas,” which started three months earlier than usual with the aim of finishing 18 to 24 episodes before the fall. Normally, the show would have only about seven or eight episodes filmed. “In essence, it makes us strike-proof,” said Gary Scott Thompson, the show’s writer and executive producer and a veteran of the last writer’s strike in 1988. Another NBC show, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” began shooting two months early. The three-year pact between studios and the Writers Guild of America expires Oct. 31 and talks are scheduled to begin in July. That gives both sides little time to resolve complex issues involving how much TV and film writers should be paid when their work is distributed on new media platforms, including the Internet, cell phones, digital media players and other devices. The writers argue the payments – modeled after the structures used for DVD rights – are too low. Hollywood studios are speeding production on movies and TV shows, preparing for a possible strike by writers and more trouble next year when contracts with actors and directors expire. TV networks, which are in the midst of planning fall schedules, also might pack their lineups with more reality shows and other unscripted fare as protection against a strike. “It’s simply sound business,” said J. Nicholas Counter, president of the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, which negotiates on behalf of the studios. “Based upon the public statements of the Writers Guild, it’s quite clear these are going to be very contentious negotiations,” he said. “Their statements are bellicose, so we’ve got to prepare for the worst.” last_img read more

  • Sanchez, Mikhitaryan swap completed

    first_img0Shares0000Alexis Sanchez’s signing was officially announced on twitter by Manchester United.MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Jan 22- Manchester United have officially announced the mega-money signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, with the Chilean joining on a deal worth Sh86mn (£600,000) a week.The forward had a busy Monday morning, having visited the United training ground and Old Trafford — where he bumped into club legend Sir Alex Ferguson — before being spotted at an immigration office in Liverpool for approval on his work permit. “I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world,” said 29-year-old Chile international forward Sanchez.“I have spent three-and-a-half wonderful years at Arsenal and I bring with me very positive memories of that great club and its fans.“The chance to play in this historic stadium and to work with Jose Mourinho was something I could not turn down.“I am very proud to be the first Chilean player ever to play for United’s first team and I hope I can show our fans all around the world why the club wanted to bring me here.”Henrikh Mkhitaryan was seen arriving at the same UK Visas and Immigration centre, at The Capital Building on Union Street in Liverpool, minutes after Sanchez, with the pair both waiting to have their documents approved by the Home Office.This is the highest basic wage of any player in the Premier League.Sanchez, who has chosen United over their arch rivals Manchester City, was earlier seen arriving at Carrington at 8am on Monday before departing the club’s training base later that morning.The former Barcelona star also visited Old Trafford where it is understood he was greeted by United legend Ferguson, who was pictured speaking to people sitting inside the 29-year-old’s taxi.He was later seen leaving the Lowry Hotel, where he is staying, before leaving Manchester for Liverpool, where he travelled to have his work permit approved.On Sunday night, Sanchez was pictured taking a selfie in a United shirt with his name and No 7 on the back.Mkhitaryan has now gone the other way in a swap deal while United will also pay a £20million transfer fee to Arsenal and £15m to Sanchez’s agent Fernando Felicevich.The Armenia international also had his medical at Arsenal, who are also busy trying to seal a deal for Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.He will join up with his new United colleagues on Tuesday when they begin preparations for Friday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie at Yeovil Town, following two days off after the weekend win over Burnley.Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said of Sanchez’s move: ‘January has been difficult for us, destabilising. It is the first time this has happened to us in January.‘We have had big players concerned with moving away which causes uncertainty in the dressing room. I was tempted to include Sanchez against Palace, yes, but I didn’t take him because there is a question of him moving to United.‘You can’t drive north and play football. I expect it to happen but I can’t announce it. Until it’s over the line you can’t say it will happen.’Chile international Sanchez wanted to leave Arsenal for Manchester City last summer. It didn’t happen then but with only six months left on his contract, Wenger decided a trade deal with Mkhitaryan was preferable to losing him for nothing in the summer.Sportsmail revealed Mkhitaryan had said an emotional goodbye after his final United training session on Friday. ‘It was very tearful,’ said a source. ‘Henrikh has been a very popular figure here at United.‘We know he isn’t too happy with the way this deal has been forced upon him. He realises he has more chance of playing at Arsenal, but he would have preferred to leave on his own terms.’-By Daily Mail0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

  • Could Barcelona wear this stunning kit next season? New away shirt leaked

    first_img latest This is the Barcelona away shirt, as reported by Mundo Deportivo tense The yellow jersey has been worn only a few times in the club’s history, being first introduced in the 1920s. A plain yellow shirt remained throughout the 1930s, but the colour was put away until it was revived in the 1970s.That famous yellow shirt was emblazoned with a diagonal stripe running from right to left – with next season’s outfit choosing the alternate left to right stripe. The following decade saw the diagonal stripe replaced with an off-centre straight line, a design repeated in 2008/09.That campaign a decade ago was the last time Barcelona have worn a normal tone of yellow, with a number of fluorescent attempts introduced over the past 15 years – including this season’s away shirt.
