STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – SUNDAY MARCH 1, 2015

first_imgFernando Perez12512161110%$554,162 UNDEFEATED DORTMUND SET FOR SAN FELIPEHall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert said Sunday morning that unbeaten Dortmund, a leading Triple Crown contender, would run in Saturday’s Grade II, $400,000 San Felipe Stakes, a major steppingstone to the Grade I, $1 million Santa Anita Derby on April 4.Dortmund, a grandiose son of 2008 Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown, won his last two races by a head, the Robert B. Lewis Stakes and the Grade I Los Alamitos Futurity.Winner of all four of his races, Dortmund had been expected to make his next start in the San Anita Derby. The Lewis was run on Feb. 7.Other probables for the San Felipe, a race Baffert has won four times, include Bolo, Ocho Ocho Ocho, Pain and Misery and Prospect Park. SHARED BELIEF CARRIES HIGHWEIGHT OF 125 IN BIG ‘CAPShared Belief, “the best horse in the country,” will carry his greatest impost ever,top weight of 125 pounds, in Saturday’s Grade I, $1 million Santa Anita Handicap presented by San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino.“I don’t think Jerry had any complaints,” said Jerry Hollendorfer assistant Dan Ward of the 125 assigned to Shared Belief, the once-beaten male 2-year-old champion of 2013 who defeated 2014 Horse of the Year California Chrome in the San Antonio Invitational on Feb. 7.“The racing secretary told us Shared Belief is the best horse in the country,” Ward said, adding that the disparity in weights from high to low is more significant than the actual weight assigned and carried by the high weight.In 10 lifetime starts, nine of them victories, Shared Belief has never carried more than 123 pounds, both times in his last two starts, victories, in the San Antonio at a mile and an eighth and the Grade I Malibu at seven furlongs.Probable starters with assigned weights for the 78th Santa Anita Handicap for 4-year-olds and up at 1 ¼ miles, which goes as race 10 on an 11-race program that starts at 12 noon: Shared Belief, Mike Smith, 125; Bronzo, Tyler Baze, 117; Dynamic Sky, Corey Nakatani, 117; Patrioticandproud, no rider, 116; Hard Aces, Victor Espinoza, 115; Sr. Quisqueyano, Joe Talamo, 115; Catch a Flight, Gary Stevens, 114; Cool Samurai, Aaron Gryder, 114; Crimson Giant, Brandon Boulanger, 114; and Diamond Bachelor, Martin Pedroza, 114.In other Big ‘Cap news:Bob Baffert was undecided Sunday morning on whether San Pasqual Stakes winner Hoppertunity would start. Asked at 9 a.m. if the son of Any Given Saturday would run in the race, Baffert said, “Don’t know yet.”Crimson Giant might be long on odds but he won’t be short on fitness. “Every single day he gallops at a very high clip,” trainer Charlie Stutts said of the 6-year-old gelding, winner of only a maiden race from 66 career starts.The California-bred son of Formal Gold owned and bred by Bryan Carney has raced six times at this meet alone in a span of nine weeks. His lifetime past performances take up seven inches of space.Apprentice rider Bryan Boulanger, who celebrates his 21st birthday today, has the mount in the Big ‘Cap.Santa Anita offers two huge guaranteed pools on Big ‘Cap Day, $1 million on the Late Pick 4 and $250,000 on the Pick 6. There will be a Beerfest and live music in the Infield.

In four career starts, it will mark the first beyond 6 ½ furlongs for Pain and Misery.“The timing is good,” trainer Richard Mandella said in explaining the move. “He’s ready to run and the San Felipe is the race that’s there. We don’t know if he’s good enough for that, but we might as well find out. He trains like he might be.”Pain and Misery made his debut at Del Mar last Aug. 24, finishing third before moving to Zia Park in New Mexico where he won two straight for trainer Henry Dominguez, including the Governors Cup at six furlongs.Sent to Mandella, Pain and Misery was beaten a neck in his debut for the Hall of Fame conditioner at 10-1 in the restricted Baffle Stakes at about 6 ½ furlongs on turf Feb. 15.Mandella wouldn’t be setting a precedent should Pain and Misery win. Mandella captured the San Felipe for owner Burt Bacharach in 1994 and 1995 with Soul of the Matter and Afternoon Deelites.Mandella is not averse to winning with longshots, either. He saddled male 2-year-old champion of 2003 Action This Day to a 26-1 shocker in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile that year.FINISH LINES: Agent Tony Matos reports that Corey Nakatani will ride Mr. Z for        D.

Tottenham target set for Roma switch

Davide Astori 1 Tottenham target Davide Astori is set to complete his move to Roma.The Cagliari defender was said to be close to a move to Lazio earlier in the summer, but Tottenham were still credited with an interest in the talented 27-year-old.But Astori caused a surprise when he signed a new contract with Cagliari – and now it seems he is still set for a switch away from the club.Roma have reportedly offered around £6m for his services and it is thought a deal will be completed before the end of the week, with Sky Sports Italia claiming the player is close to agreeing terms with the Stadio Olimpico based side.

PRINGLE CALLS FOR SUB-REGIONAL ACTION PLAN FOR DONEGAL

first_imgDeputy PringleDeputy Thomas Pringle has slammed an Action Plan claiming Donegal was pitched with contrasting counties like Louth in order to skew jobs figures for the entire region.The Deputy says the idea that Donegal and Louth are included under one Action Plan doesn’t make sense.He said “The two have completely different economic needs. It is clear this was done so that positive job figures in Louth will skew the figures overall in the region to make the Government look good. “I’ve raised this issue before in the Dáil but I was told I was playing a numbers game. It’s not me playing. The Government proposes 28,000 jobs by 2020 but how many of these are promised for Donegal? It’s the highest populated county out of a total of six counties included in this Plan yet Donegal remains peripheral to its proposals.He added that Donegal should have been given a sub-regional action plan that reflects the unique circumstances of the county and its economic development needs while targeting the legacy of years of under-investment and continued marginalisation from national policies.“If the Government was serious about job creation it would invest in local jobs which are sustainable to rural communities. This could have been reflected in an expedited plan to roll out broadband infrastructure to peripheral and remote areas working inwards towards more populated areas.“This would ensure that most of Donegal could catch up with other urban centres and counties across Ireland experiencing growth and would give people the scope to create their own jobs within their own communities. “There is an over- reliance on IDA investment to bring in the majority of these jobs but the reality is it will do little outside of urban centres in Donegal. It’s not rural-friendly.“Investing in rural- friendly industries like biomass would ensure people stay in rural Ireland. I do welcome the inclusion of biomass in one of the actions outlined but it’s an ongoing project that lacks a timeline or job projections. It’s important that funding continues to be invested in biomass development to maximise job potential.“I welcome the mention of the Killybeg’s Regional Seafood Development Hub and the commitment to develop a Renewable Energy Innovation Centre at Killybegs. However, it’s vital that funding is secured to ensure maximise job creation in the sector and the region as a whole.“Education and training do feature in the Action Plan however there is no sign of commitment to keep the Killybegs campus of LYIT open. This facility will be vital for the areas it serves and for training people for local jobs.PRINGLE CALLS FOR SUB-REGIONAL ACTION PLAN FOR DONEGAL was last modified: December 1st, 2015 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:Deputy Thomas PringleDonegal action planjobslast_img read more

REVEALED: EXPELLED PLAYGROUP STAGE THREE-DAY SIT-IN AT COMMUNITY CENTRE

first_imgA PLAYGROUP told to quit premises at a Co Donegal community centre is refusing to leave – and plans legal action to stay put!The Children’s Point Childcare Centre is based at the community centre in Quigley’s Point. In a statement issued to donegaldaily.com, the playgroup chairperson Nancy McCauley said the group was ignoring the notice to quit after taking legal advice.It’s understood the committee which runs the community centre had invited a new organisation to provide childcare facilities.The playgroup responded by changing the locks and staging a sit-in on the premises for the past THREE DAYS!Said the statement: “Due to the actions of QPCC and in order to secure the future of our facility and the jobs of our staff, on legal advice we are continuing with our tenancy at Quigley’s Point Community Centre using only the rooms designated for the childcare service. “There is absolutely no reason that the action we have taken will cause the Community Centre to close or curtail any of the activities currently taking place there. Our tenancy will continue, as it has always done, without any interruption to the activities of QPCC, outside our rooms.“We have conducted our affairs through the proper legal channels, and all the facts will be given in open court.The statement went on: “In the interest of clarity it is important that the issues are clarified and, clearly and accurately, set out:Registered letters were sent to QPCC, and their solicitor, clearly setting out our intention to continue our tenancy and to seek relief for an invalid termination of our lease.CPCC is an independent limited liability company with charitable status. Our financial affairs are all in order and audited. We do not owe any monies to QPCC. We have a current tax clearance certificate. We employ three members of staff.In April 2011 an invalid Notice to Quit was served on CPCC and QPCC made it clear that they were going to open a “new” childcare facility. This was confirmed in the Parish Newsletter at the beginning of May. No consideration was given to, or going to be given to, the staff employed by CPCC.On 5th May 2011 a public meeting was held on the matter. QPCC have not honoured a commitment given at that meeting to revert to CPCC and to reconsider the Notice to Quit.While still maintaining our legal entitlement to a new lease in the community centre, CPCC tried to secure alternative premises. QPCC have objected to this process in the most vigorous manner. (See Donegal County Council Planning Enquiries website – Planning Ref: 11/70272).On Friday 2nd September, we entered the premises to set up our rooms for the new term. We were refused keys to the rooms or to the main entrance, hence the need to change the locks. A copy of the keys to the new locks would have been given to QPCC.On Saturday 3 September 2011, we agreed to nominate a mediator to discuss the current impasse and explore a mutually acceptable resolution. This was without prejudice to the legal position of both parties. This suggestion, made by independent well-intentioned members of the community, was rejected by QPCC.We have always been mindful of the welfare of all the children in the community and the community at large, but we were faced with no alternative but to take the action that we have now taken.No-one from the community centre was available for comment.REVEALED: EXPELLED PLAYGROUP STAGE THREE-DAY SIT-IN AT COMMUNITY CENTRE was last modified: September 5th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:playgroup rowquigleys pointlast_img read more
