Radical for midweek feature

first_imgSUPREME VENTURES Racing and Entertainment Limited stages its first midweek meet since taking over the Caymanas Park racing complex on March 7, the well supported 10-race programme featuring the inaugural running of the Monday Morning Trophy over 1400 metres to be contested by 15 native bred three-year-olds. Offering a total purse of $780,000, the race is being run in honour of the 1987 Horse of the Year and Triple Crown winner. MONDAY MORNING, who won the 2000 Guineas while he was conditioned by trainer Stanley Findlay and the derby and St Leger after he was transferred to the stables of Enos Brown by his owner. With a large field and good form present, keen competition is anticipated. However, I narrow it down to the quartet of RADICAL from the stables of leading champion trainer Wayne DaCosta, MALACHI with former champion Dane Nelson riding for trainer Gresford Smith, and the fillies EMPRESS HALL and LADY FAYE, who has finished second to some good horses in her last two races. With champion jockey Omar Walker and his guv’nor, Wayne DaCosta, enjoying a tremendous run in feature races this season, RADICAL could well start favourite and justify the support. The son of Fearless Vision – Nishtel’s Annette won easily over this trip in the good time of 1:26.3 on February 11 and subsequently finished 31/4 lengths fifth to stable-companion FEARLESS SAMURAI in the valuable Prince Consort Stakes over the distance on March 18. In the latter race, RADICAL was not the best away and unable to go the early pace as a result, But he stayed on from below the distance and was not disgraced in finishing fifth. With nothing of the calibre of FEARLESS SAMURAI present, RADICAL who has good pace, should race in touch of the expected leader EMPRESS HALL into the straight before gaining the upper hand. He should hold on grimly from the late-running grey colt MALACHI, who after winning decisively on his debut over 1300 metres some weeks ago, came back with a big effort in defeat when finishing 13/4 lengths second to DONTAE over 1500 metres on March 4. Other firm fancies on the card are BALAZO, who bolted off the track on his debut six months ago when having race one in the Front Runner series at his mercy, to romp the opening race for maiden three-year-olds; SIR LEYLAND HALL in the third, WILL IN CHARGE in the fifth as well as HOLOGRAM SHADOW in the sixth, BOUNCE in the seventh and CHACE THE GREAT in the overnight allowance sprint.last_img read more

Emperor’s Challenge just around the corner

first_imgRunners or walkers have five hours in which to complete the event. Gold finisher’s medals are presented to those finishing in under two hours, silver for those in under three hours, and bronze medals for the rest of the finishers. In 2009 for the first time there will be age-group awards as well: 18 and under, 19–34, 35-49, 50-64, 65 and over.Kids are catered to through tough races of their own, of exactly one fifth or one tenth the adult distance (4 or 2 kms). A festive atmosphere prevails at the Core Lodge, which is the hub of the race, with a marquis, massages, refreshments, awards ceremony and much more. The event is spectator friendly, and telescopes are trained on the upper reaches of the mountain to see who emerges first.For further information visit www.emperorschallenge.com **SubmittedThe eleventh annual Emperor’s Challenge Mountain Run will take place on Saturday August 8th, thirty-five kilometres south of Tumbler Ridge. Hosted by the Wolverine Nordic and Mountain Society, and billed as the toughest and most beautiful half marathon in the world, it is northern BC’s premier mountain running event. It has been attracting increasing numbers of athletes from across western Canada, and as far away as the USA and England. There was a record field of close on 400 in 2008.After ten years on Roman Mountain, the course moves in 2009 to neighboring Babcock Mountain. The race in a sense became a victim of its own success, as increasing numbers made for a bottleneck in the scenic but technically challenging Matthews Gully.- Advertisement -A crew of volunteers has been hard at work establishing the brand new route. It may seem incredible, but connoisseurs of mountain scenery are of the opinion that the Babcock Mountain route is even more spectacular than its predecessor. The new route essentially contains two loops, an upper and a lower. The upper route has now been almost completely marked: there are yellow or orange stakes every ten to twenty metres (donated by Peace River Coal). There are just three remaining snowfields, each about a hundred metres long, where the staking could not yet be completed. However, on a clear day the route should now be accessible for anyone wanting to practice on it or just see what it looks like. Course marking of the lower loop, below the tree-line, will be completed over the next few weeks.The upper loop, in the alpine, passes through entrancing rocky scenery, right over the mountain summit and through the valley that bisects the mountain-top, past tarns, with magnificent views of the northern Rockies on a fine day. Caribou and goats are often seen. The elevation gain of 2000 feet is not quite as formidable as on Roman Mountain, and the incline not as steep, but this translates into a constant uphill battle for the first sixty percent of the race, which fit runners may possibly be able to do without walking. Some say the new route may make a new record possible, others that most participants will experience slightly slower times.Although the event is an ultra-tough race for the top runners, it is simply a challenge and a test of endurance for most ordinary mortals. The youngest participant for the full distance has been ten, and the oldest eighty-two. Twenty-eight adults and seven kids have received their coveted “in perpetuity” numbers for completing five Emperor’s Challenges. Another 21 adults and 4 kids are eligible to receive this honour in 2009.Advertisementlast_img read more

‘Something has changed at Everton’ – Romelu Lukaku looks set to STAY at Everton

first_img1 Romelu Lukaku’s agent has suggested the striker is now ready to stay at Everton.The 23-year-old said last month he was preparing to depart Goodison Park this summer for a club competing for titles.Chelsea have been linked with a move to re-sign the Belgian, who is currently on duty at Euro 2016, while Arsenal have been tipped to launch a shock swoop.However, Lukaku appears set to continue as a Toffee following the arrival of Ronald Koeman as manager and with multi-millionaire Farhad Moshiri now at the helm of the club.His representative Mino Raiola told Belgian newspaper Sportwereld: “If he leaves, it’s has to be a good deal for all parties involved.“Everton don’t need money anymore. Rom wants to play for a club that can win trophies. Something’s changed at Everton – there’s a new project.“Romelu certainly has the qualities to play in Italy but as the Italian landscape currently looks, there is no team that can afford him. He is too expensive for Serie A.“Only a global club can pay him. The top clubs in England, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris St Germain and, of course, Bayern Munich.”For the moment, however, Raiola insists Lukaku – like his other clients – is focused on the tournament in France“Their duty is to concentrate on it. Their future is tomorrow and as long as they are active at the European Championships, that is their future,” he added.“Romelu does not want any thoughts of a transfer to be used as an excuse (for poor Euro 2016 performances).” Romelu Lukaku celebrates scoring for Belgium last_img read more
