Golden Pal scorches to Juvenile Turf Sprint success | Racing News

first_imgHis advantage was being eroded late on, but Golden Pal was ultimately well on top at the line, with Cowan a fast-finishing second.Nigel Tinkler’s Flying Childers winner Ubettabelieveit fared best of the European raiding party in third after blowing the start.Ward said: “He’s just amazing. I got a little worried on the backside when Irad took a hold of him as he lost a little momentum, but then he just accelerated down the lane and he’s a champion colt.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – “When he showed a bit of acceleration passing the quarter-pole I knew we were OK, although I got a little worried in the last part. I was hugging my son, but we got there!“Royal Ascot here we come – we’re going to get it this year!”Winning owner-breeder Randy Lowe was a proud man – and outlined big plans for next year.He said: “I bred him out of my mare Lady Shipman and right from the moment he was born and put his chin in the palm of my hand I knew he was going to be special.“Winning a race at the Breeders’ Cup has been my ambition for 35 years so this is one of the greatest days of my life.“I named him Golden Pal after my mentor John C Mabee, whose best horse was Best Pal.“Regarding Wesley, he has chased me for a few years to send him one and because he liked this horse so much, I thought let’s let him have a try.”He added: “In the race Irad tried to pull him back because we’d spent a lot of time teaching to rate, but then he let out a notch (of rein) and he was in control.“Owing to the Covid restrictions we were unable to go to Royal Ascot to see him run, so we threw a breakfast party in the Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas. I remember as we watched the race develop I couldn’t believe it when he got caught.“I think the plan will be to rest him and then bring him back here at Keeneland in early April, but the big plans are the King’s Stand Stakes, the Nunthorpe and the Breeders’ Cup again next year.”Tinkler was delighted with the performance of Ubettabelieveit, saying: “We put ear plugs on him so he wouldn’t hear the bell so loud and obviously he fell out of the stalls, but it probably helped him in some ways because he got a good run through.“We’re obviously delighted with him and I thought the jockey (Rowan Scott) gave him a great ride.“He probably didn’t quite get the trip – he’s a five-furlong horse, it was five-and-a-half today and in the last 50 yards he just got a little bit tired, but we’re very pleased.“We know he’s a very good horse and we’re fortunate to have him. We’ll look forward to next season and he’ll have a good break now.”Hollie Doyle was out of the places on the Archie Watson-trained Mighty Gurkha, on what was her first Breeders’ Cup ride.She said: “He jumped well, but we hit a flat spot and lost our position and then he couldn’t quicken in the straight. It’s been a great experience and I’ve loved every minute here.” With Irad Ortiz Jr in the saddle, Golden Pal was the red-hot favourite to provide trainer Wesley Ward with back-to-back in the Grade Two contest following the victory of Four Wheel Drive 12 months ago – and the result was scarcely in doubt.Ward’s charge made a rapid start from his wide berth, enabling him to cross the field and take an early lead.Ortiz Jr briefly took his mount back, before giving him his head before the home turn and he quickly put clear daylight between himself and his rivals.- Advertisement – Royal Ascot runner-up Golden Pal dominated from the front in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint at Keeneland.Mowed down late by Michael Bell’s The Lir Jet in the Norfolk Stakes in June, the Uncle Mo colt had since blitzed his rivals in a stakes race at Saratoga after connections abandoned plans to return to Britain for a tilt at the Nunthorpe at York.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Russia preparing mass vaccination against coronavirus for October

first_img“We plan wider vaccinations for October,” Murashko was quoted as saying.A source told Reuters this week that Russia’s first potential COVID-19 vaccine would secure local regulatory approval in August and be administered to health workers soon thereafter.The Gamaleya Institute has been working on an adenovirus-based vaccine.Yet the speed at which Russia is moving to roll it out has prompted some Western media to question whether Moscow is putting national prestige before science and safety. Russia’s health minister is preparing a mass vaccination campaign against the novel coronavirus for October, local news agencies reported on Saturday, after a vaccine completed clinical trials.Health Minister Mikhail Murashko said the Gamaleya Institute, a state research facility in Moscow, had completed clinical trials of the vaccine and paperwork is being prepared to register it, Interfax news agency reported.He said doctors and teachers would be the first to be vaccinated. The head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, Kirill Dmitriev, has likened what he said was Russia’s success in developing a vaccine to the Soviet Union’s 1957 launch of Sputnik 1, the world’s first satellite.On Saturday, Russia reported 95 additional deaths from the novel coronavirus, taking its total to 14,058.Officials reported 5,462 new cases, raising the total to 845,443.More than 100 possible vaccines are being developed around the world to try to stop the COVID-19 pandemic.At least four are in final Phase III human trials, according to World Health Organization (WHO) data, including three developed in China and another in Britain. Topics :last_img read more

Polygamist’s second wife ‘may get sole-parent benefit’ – ministry

first_imgNZ Herald 17 February 2017A Government ministry says a second “wife” in a polygamous marriage may be entitled to a sole-parent benefit.The surprising statement by the Ministry of Social Development has been condemned by lobby group Family First, and is disputed on legal grounds by welfare law expert Mamari Stephens.Family First director Bob McCoskrie says the law needs to be clarified to provide a consistent ban on polygamy.He asked the ministry for the legal position after the recent case of Pakistani-born meat wholesaler Yasir Mohib, who was jailed for a year for beating one of his wives with a hammer because she complained that he was holding hands with his other wife.The ministry’s general manager of ministerial and executive services Elisabeth Brunt replied that the Social Security Act referred to only “any 2 people who have entered into a relationship in the nature of marriage“.“The ministry is only able to treat one woman as being married to a man at any one time,” she wrote.“Multiple marriages are not recognised under the Social Security Act and should such a circumstance arise where a person applied for a benefit with multiple ‘wives’, the ministry would only be able to treat one wife as being married to the man.”“As such the other ‘wives’ would be regarded for benefit purposes as being either single or sole parents, depending on their individual circumstances.“They may be able to receive a benefit in their own right depending on their individual circumstances. Each situation would be assessed on a case by case basis.”However Stephens said a “second wife” in a polygamous relationship could not get a sole parent benefit because a sole parent is someone “who is living apart from, and has lost the support of or is being inadequately maintained by, the person’s spouse or partner“.“You are not going to be eligible for a benefit if you are getting emotionally and financially supported by someone else,” she said.Stephens said it was a crime in New Zealand law, bigamy, if anyone who is already married to one person “goes through a form of marriage or civil union in New Zealand with a third person”.But she said there was no law against living in de facto relationships with any number of people, and there was also no ban on having several legally married wives if the marriages took place overseas before the parties became New Zealand residents.In fact the Family Proceedings Act of 1980 states that the term “marriage” “includes a union in the nature of marriage that (a) is entered into outside New Zealand, and (b) is at any time polygamous, where the law of the country in which each of the parties is domiciled at the time of the union then permits polygamy”.McCoskrie said the law was clearly inconsistent.“I want consistency,” he said.“Is polygamy being recognised covertly by the Government? That is the first concern.“Secondly, if the Government is going to come down on welfare fraud, then we need to have clarity and consistency around the rules, not turn a blind eye to certain arrangements.”He pointed to Canadian Court findings that women in polygamous relationships were at higher risk of physical and emotional harm, and their children were at more risk of abuse and neglect.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11802143Keep up with family issues in NZ.

Djokovic digs deep to repel Raonic onslaught

first_imgBy Martyn HermanLONDON,(Reuters)-It has been missing for a while but Novak Djokovic rediscovered his warrior spirit to tame Canada’s Milos Raonic 7-6(6) 7-6(5) in a rivetting duel and guarantee progress from his group at the ATP World Tour Finals yesterday.The 29-year-old Serb’s recent malaise has cost him the world number one ranking he held for 122 weeks but when backed into a corner by an inspired Raonic, he responded in the belligerent manner that has earned him 12 grand slam titles.World number four Raonic threw the kitchen sink at the elastic-limbed Serb for more than two hours but Djokovic, bidding for a fifth consecutive title at the year-ender and a possible return to top spot, was equal to everything — just.Having edged a high-intensity first-set when Raonic double-faulted on set point down in a tense tiebreak, Djokovic looked to have broken the shackles in the second to lead 4-2.Raonic, serving 140mph bombs, stormed back to rock Djokovic on his heels and came within a missed forehand of extending the match into a late-night decider.Djokovic looked mightily relieved when Raonic’s backhand flew wide on match point and he can now look forward to a semi-final on Saturday, whatever the outcome of his final group match against Gael Monfils tomorrow.Raonic will face Austria’s Dominic Thiem with the victor joining Djokovic in the semis after debutant Thiem claimed his first win at the tournament with a 6-3 1-6 6-4 defeat of Monfils earlier at the O2 Arena.“I managed to hang in there mentally and stay strong and believed that the opportunities would come and that I could take them,” Djokovic, who needs to better Andy Murray’s performance here to return to the summit, said on court.“Milos was hanging in there and only one or two points separated us in the second set. It could have gone either way this match. He’s such a strong player and has got firepower.”last_img read more
