Double disqualication at the track as Typewriter shines

first_imgTwo-time Superstakes winner TYPEWRITER started his 2015 campaign on a high note with an emphatic victory in the 3-y-o and up open allowance feature for the Nigel B. Nunes Memorial Cup, a race he was winning for the third consecutive year.Racing for the first time since his unplaced effort behind PERFECT NEIGHBOUR in the grade one Harry Jackson Memorial Cup over 2400 metres last Boxing Day, TYPEWRITER was presented in good nick by trainer Spencer Chung. Stepping down in class, the six-year-old bay gelding by Western Classic out of Docs’ Paladin outclassed his six opponents with veteran jockey Ian Spence riding him for the first time, replacing his customary jockey, Shane Ellis, who chose to ride the even-money favourite FRANFIELD.Held up in fifth for the first half of the race as LOCKED AND LOADED (13-1) and highly fancied UNCLE TAF (9-5) for the lead ahead of TIMEFORARMS (15-1) and FRANFIELD, TYPEWRITER was produced three-wide with his challenge entering the straight as TIMEFORARMS turned for home just ahead of FRANFIELD.Responding to the left hand whip, he went by TIMEFORARMS leaving the furlong pole to win by two lengths, with FRANFIELD another eight lengths away third.TYPEWRITER is owned by Robert and Valentine Chung and bred by HAM Stables Limited. He has now won 14 races from 25 career starts, including the 2012 derby and St Leger, as well as back-to-back Superstakes, for total stakes of $17.4 million.UNBEATEN IN TWO STARTSThe speedy 2-y-o colt, DREAMLINER, with Robert Halledeen riding for champion trainer Wayne DaCosta romped the Terremoto Trophy secondary feature to be unbeaten in two starts.Following the disqualification of the Aaron Chatrie-ridden and Gary Subratie-trained BOLD AVIATOR on the previous Saturday, the stewards struck again by disqualifying another Chatrie-ridden horse for Subratie, WOMAN IS BOSS (4-1), for causing interference in the seventh race over the straight. The jockey was suspended from riding for the remainder of the day as well. In the very next race, they struck again, taking down the 9-5 favourite, REGALLY BOLD, with former champion Wesley Henry aboard.last_img read more

PSC continues advocacy for establishment of commissions

first_imgPSC Chairman Norman McLeanchairman of the Private Sector Commission (PSC) Norman McLean on Thursday said the body remains committed to its advocacy for the establishment of several commissions.These include the Public Procurement and the Ethnic Relations Commissions, as well as other commissions on children, gender and indigenous peoples. However, they remain non starters at the moment.The new Administration had promised to get most, if not all of these commissions, up and running; however, there have been some major setbacks.In December last year, Government began making moves to have the Public Procurement Commission (PPC) established by advertising through the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) for stakeholders, political parties, civil organisations and individuals to submit names of persons eligible to be considered commissioners.Since then, nothing further has been said or done.While on the Opposition side of the house, the new Government was very critical of the then People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Government’s approach to the distribution of contracts and had called out to the PPP/C to have the Public Procurement Commission established.According to Guyana’s Constitution, the PPC shall consist of five members who shall have expertise and experience in the procurement, legal, financial and administrative matters.The Procurement Commission is usually made up of Government and Opposition parliamentarians, and is traditionally chaired by a member of the Opposition in the House.Government itself had come under fire for failing to establish the Procurement Commission earlier – a promise it made in its manifesto. The absence of the PPC had caused even more outrage against Government, particularly because of its move to carry out a number of forensic audits at State entities across Guyana, without carrying out the requisite tendering process.Meanwhile, the Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) is yet to be constituted. Government had said late last year too that it was awaiting a move from the Opposition.During the 10th Parliament, the appointive committee had approved the names of nominees to be ERC Commissioners; however, despite the approval, their appointments were not assented to by former President Donald Ramotar.Similarly, the Rights of the Child Commission, the Women and Gender Equality Commission and the commission on indigenous people are also yet to be established.The last public call for the establishment of these commissions was back in early February 2015, by then Speaker of the National Assembly Raphael Trotman.He had urged that outstanding aspects of the 2001 Constitutional Reform process be deepened to strengthen the work of the Rights of the Child Commission (RCC). According to him, the Constitution specifies that a Human Rights Commission and a Rights Tribunal be established, the existence of which he believed would give potency to the work of the RCC and its findings.The RCC is one of several constitutional Rights Commissions that were established at the conclusion of the reform, which included the term limits for Presidents. The others are the Human Rights, Women and Gender, Indigenous Peoples and the Ethnic Relations Commission.last_img read more

Convicted robber slapped with armed robbery charge

first_imgA Leopold Street, Georgetown resident, who is known to the law and was released from prison on May 24, 2019, found himself before the court once again for armed robbery.Omalo WilliamsTwenty-seven-year-old Omalo Williams, a father of two, stood before acting Chief Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus on Monday at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts and pleaded not guilty to two counts of armed robbery.The Police stated that on May 25, 2019, at Smyth and Leopold Streets, while in the company of others and armed with guns, Williams robbed LaToya Lowenfield of a $170,000 cellphone.It is further alleged that Williams, along with his accomplices, robbed Odwin Lowenfield of a cellphone and cash totalling $91,000.Police Prosecutor Adduni Innis objected to bail on the grounds that Williams was no stranger to the court since he has served an 11-month sentence for similar charges and was released from prison in May. She further indicated to the court that the accused had other charges before another court.According to court documents, on the day in question, the victims were walking along Smyth and Leopold, Streets when they were confronted by Williams and his accomplices, who were armed with guns and relieved the victims of their valuables before making good their escape.A report was made and Police ranks later arrested Williams. He was positively identified by the victims during an ID parade.Williams was remanded to prison, and his next court appearance was scheduled for June 24, 2019.last_img read more

Police search for gunmen in infant’s death

first_imgBy Alice Walton CITY NEWS SERVICE Three gunmen shot and killed a 23-day-old baby in front of his mother and as many as 100 witnesses near MacArthur Park, Los Angeles police said Monday. The infant, Luis Angel Garcia, was shot about 9:30 p.m. Saturday at Sixth Street and Burlington Avenue. The baby was taken to California Hospital, where he died. Francisco Clemente, 37, was also shot and critically injured. Police believe Clemente – not the baby – was the intended target. The city is offering a $75,000 reward for information in the case. “The cold blooded murder of a tiny, defenseless newborn baby is a crime that we just can’t tolerate and won’t tolerate in the city of Los Angeles,” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said at a City Hall news conference. “Anyone who is willing to gun down a man in cold blood in the middle of a busy, working-class neighborhood within inches of a newborn baby is a threat to everyone, everywhere.” Police declined to comment on whether there was a relationship between Clemente and Garcia or the infant’s mother. It is also too early in the investigation to know whether the shooting was gang-related or the motive behind the crime, detectives said. Police believe 50 to 100 people witnessed the shooting. “This is a devastating situation and it is our hope that someone in the community knows or has information about who committed this crime,” said LAPD Assistant Chief James McDonnell. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Liverpool target set for talks over deal

first_img Lazio star Felipe Anderson Liverpool target Felipe Anderson has entered talks with current club Lazio about a new and improved contract.The Anfield club reportedly sent a scout to watch the 21-year-old play 90 minutes of Lazio’s 4-0 win over Fiorentina on Monday and talk of a £20m valuation was doing the rounds in the Italian capital.However, according to reports in Italy, the interest from Merseyside has sparked Lazio’s money men into action and they are trying to tie the Brazilian down on a new long-term deal.Anderson has played in 20 Serie A matches so far this season and scored six goals from midfield. The South American could form a mouthwatering partnership with current Liverpool midfielder and compatriot Philippe Coutinho.But Lazio, who already have him under contract until 2018, are ready to block any potential bids from England with an even longer deal for their rising star. 1last_img read more

Manchester City facing another Champions League failure, warns Niall Quinn

first_imgManchester City’s Champions League campaign will end in disappointment once more unless they sort out their defensive issues, Niall Quinn has warned.City have spent hundreds of millions in a bid to crack Europe but have never even reached the quarter-finals of the competition.They booked their place in the last 16 with two group games to spare this term but appeared vulnerable at the back against Juventus on Tuesday night as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat in Turin.And Quinn believes they may struggle again in the knockout stage.“There is work to be done,” said the former City striker, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“I saw moments of defending last night that would worry me.“For the goal, Nicolas Otamendi loses his man very easily, he is slightly palmed off and just dives to the ground in the hope he can fool the referee into giving a free kick. That is poor. That is the sign of a nervy defence.“They have to eradicate it [their defensive issues] if they are to harbour any ideas of making real progress in the Champions League.”last_img read more

Croker Countdown: “The whole country obsesses about Dublin” – Gallagher

first_imgCROKER COUNTDOWN: Donegal manager Rory Gallagher says the whole country obsesses about Dublin, but insists that there beatable, and that his side can beat anyone. Gallagher issued the rally cry ahead of Donegal’s mouth-watering clash with Dublin at Croke Park this Saturday.The last time the two sides met was in 2014, Dublin were red hot favourites to advance, but a stunning performance from Donegal ensured a famous win. Fast forward two years and Dublin are again expected to advance comfortably, but Gallagher insists Jim Gavin’s side are beatable.Gallagher told The Irish Examiner, “The level of performance that we’re capable of, we feel we can beat anybody and that would have been the same looking from relatively on the outside in 2014.“The whole country obsesses about Dublin. When you are in Ulster you worry about Ulster first. You keep an eye on Dublin all year, of course. They are a very good side. It is up to others to determine how good they are; all we are concerned with is being ready on Saturday evening. “They beat us in 2011, we beat them in 2014. It is like a lot of rivalries – you can see one game as defining but they are not really. We learned a lot from 2011; I am sure Dublin learned a lot from 2014, and Saturday evening will present a new challenge for both teams.“For sure they are beatable. Dublin would be very much aware of that. To beat them you have to do an awful lot of things right.“You have to produce a level of intensity that is greater than theirs. You have to make sure when you get the chances that you put them away. That’s the challenge for us.Croker Countdown: “The whole country obsesses about Dublin” – Gallagher was last modified: August 4th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Croke ParkdonegaldublinnewsRory GallagherSportlast_img read more

DANIEL’S PROFITS GO THROUGH THE ROOF TO ALMOST €5 MILLION

first_imgDaniel O’Donnell is singing all the way to the bank after his company almost doubled its profits in the past three years to €4.9 million.The 50-year-old entertainer has many other interests but this impressive profit relates to his main company.Returns recently filed by the Kincasslagh star’s main entertainment firm, DOD Promotions Ltd, for 2011, 2010 and 2009, show its profits have increased by 67 per cent over the period, climbing from €2.92 million in 2009 to €4.98 million at the end of last October. The profits for last year amounted to €307,000, with profits of €459,538 in 2010 that followed profits of €1.2m in 2009.The figures for DOD Promotions Ltd show that O’Donnell’s firm increased its cash held in bank accounts last year from €507,676 to €666,632.A major contributor to the wealth of DOD Promotions is O’Donnell’s touring company, Brockwell Ltd.The figures show that DOD Promotions Ltd received €429,277 last year from Brockwell and was due an additional €1 million from Brockwell Ltd at the end of the year. The abridged accounts for DOD Promotions Ltd do not provide a profit and loss account that would include a turnover figure. However they do disclose that last year the firm paid €127,369 in corporation tax.The returns show that O’Donnell’s long-serving and trusted manager, Sean Reilly, serves as a director on DOD Promotions.However Daniel says that money is not a motivating factor for him.“I’ve never sung to make money. When I’m performing, I never think about how much I’m making on the night. I sing because I love it and the money is just a by-product of what I do.“My biggest payment is being on the stage and that is a big part of the secret of my success. If it all ended tomorrow, I couldn’t say there is anything the world could have offered me that is better than what I have.” Earlier this year, 1,000 people – some travelling from Canada and Scotland – attended the opening of the new Daniel O’Donnell visitor centre in his home town of Dungloe, Co Donegal.The centre contains memorabilia from O’Donnell’s long career. In a recent post to fans, he said that the centre had “surpassed all of our expectations with over 5,000 visitors through the centre already”.This venture, set on the site of the old Northern Bank building, is also expected to turn a major profit for the star and its investors.DANIEL’S PROFITS GO THROUGH THE ROOF TO ALMOST €5 MILLION was last modified: August 23rd, 2012 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:companydaniel o’donnellKINCASSLAGHprofitssingerlast_img read more
