SANTA ANITA TO REMAIN CLOSED FOR LIVE RACING THROUGH WEEKEND PER ORDER OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT

first_imgSANTA ANITA TO REMAIN CLOSED FOR LIVE RACING THROUGH WEEKEND PER ORDER OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENTSanta Anita Park will remain closed for live racing through this weekend as it abides by the order issued last week from the Los Angeles County Health Department as it relates to essential businesses.  At this time, there are no known cases of COVID-19 at Santa Anita Park.The prestigious Santa Anita Derby and Santa Anita Oaks, which were set to headline the racing program on Saturday, April 4, will be rescheduled for later in the season after racing resumes.At Santa Anita Park, the health, safety and welfare of every person and every horse in our community remains our top priority.  We are continuing to have constructive dialogue with the LA County Health Department and Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger and her staff.  In cooperation with our industry stake holders, a proposal was submitted earlier this week which we believe was fully responsive to their requests.  We have yet to receive a satisfactory response to that proposal.Numerous racetracks around the country are continuing to operate.  They are running for exactly the same reasons that Santa Anita is trying to communicate to LA County officials — because the consequences of closing down the economic engine that fuels the community makes the risks and potential issues significantly worse when racing is closed and only training allowed.There are over 1,700 horses stabled at Santa Anita who require daily care provided by more than 750 backstretch team members. Most of these team members live on-site and have been operating under stringent new measures for protection aligned with the best guidance from local and international health and government authorities on COVID-19. The track has been closed to the general public and closed to all but essential personnel since March 12, 2020.We will continue to work with county health authorities to familiarize them with the protocols already in place and our plans to protect the health and safety of the community who works with the horses and calls Santa Anita home.We look forward to the return of live racing at Santa Anita as soon as approval is received from local regulators.last_img read more

Scores: England 1st innings: 303 all out in 100.1 overs (Nick Compton 85, James Taylor 70; Dale Steyn 4-70, Morne Morkel 4-76). South Africa 1st innings: 214 all out in 81.4 overs (Dean Elgar 118 not out, AB de Villiers 49; Stuart Broad 4-25, Moeen Ali 4-69). England 2nd innings: 326 all out in 102.1 overs (Jonny Bairstow 79, Joe Root 73, Nick Compton 49; Dane Piedt 5-153). South Africa 2nd innings (target: 416): 136-4 after 47 overs (Dean Elgar 40, AB de Villiers 37 not out, Steven Finn 3-27). PCB chairman turns down Ali’s resignation ISLAMABAD (AP): Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shaharyar Khan has refused to accept Azhar Ali’s resignation as ODI captain over the inclusion of former spot-fixer Mohammad Amir in the training camp. Khan met with Ali in Lahore yesterday and after the meeting the PCB said in a statement that “the chairman didn’t accept” Ali’s resignation, who agreed to continue as captain. Last week, Ali and opening batsman Mohammad Hafeez stayed away from the camp after Amir was included, but after meeting with Khan both agreed to join the camp. Amir’s five-year ban for spot-fixing during a Test match in 2010 ended in September and the 23-year-old left-arm fast bowler is in contention for next month’s limited-overs tour of New Zealand. Former Newcastle goalkeeper dies at 47 PRAGUE (AP): Pavel Srnicek, a former Czech Republic goalkeeper who also played for Newcastle, died yesterday, nine days after collapsing while running. He was 47. Sparta Prague, where Srnicek had been goalkeeper coach since 2011, said the former Premier League player died at a university clinic in the eastern city of Ostrava. Srnicek made 150 appearances for the Magpies from 1991-98 and was part of the Newcastle squad that finished runner-up in the Premier League in 1996. He recently published a book, Pavel Is a Geordie, about his years with Newcastle. Srnicek played for his country 49 times between 1994 and 2001 and was a backup goalkeeper at the 1996 European Championship, where the Czechs reached the final. Srnicek also played for English clubs Sheffield Wednesday, Portsmouth and West Ham. Gasquet withdraws from Australian Open MELBOURNE, Australia (AP): World No. 9 Richard Gasquet has withdrawn from the Australian Open because of a back injury. Tournament organisers tweeted news of Gasquet’s withdrawal late yesterday, adding “we wish him a speedy recovery”. France’s Gasquet is the third withdrawal from the Grand Slam tournament which starts on January 18 at Melbourne Park, after Juan Monaco and Thanasi Kokkinakis. Britain’s Kyle Edmund will take his place in the main draw. Gasquet aggravated the injury while playing in exhibitions this month, and he has also withdrawn from the Qatar Open, due to start on Monday.last_img read more

Country Train to capture Grooms Trophy feature

first_imgThe consistent COUNTRY TRAIN should lead home ROCK UNION in the annual renewal of the Grooms’ Association Trophy race over the straight-five course at Caymanas Park today.Confined to horses from the $350,000-$300,000 claiming spread, the race originally had 13 nominees at the overnight stage on Wednesday, but 12 will now face the starter after one of the top contenders, EL PODEROSO, drowned at sea on Thursday morning.COUNTRY TRAIN and ROCK UNION, both winners last time out, have the best form to recommend and should take it down to the wire.The five-year-old gelding ROCK UNION has won his last two races over the straight, leading home subsequent winner AUNT HILDA by just over two lengths on June 13. He was claimed out of that race from trainer Anthony ‘Baba’ Nunes by Colin Ferguson and although stepping up in class today, this will not deter him.Prior to his last race, he beat $350,000 claimers over the course on May 23 in a sub-minute time and reporting in good nick for this race, can prove equal to the task with the sparingly used but experienced jockey Paul Ramsay aboard.MUCH IMPROVEDDespite his strong claims, preference is for the Stedman Curtis-trained COUNTRY TRAIN, who has won three of her last four races.The five-year-old mare by Image Maker out of Storm Within looked much improved when slamming subsequent winner NEW KINGSTON by almost five lengths over the course on May 6, this on a $400,000 claiming tag in the good time of 1:00.0. And last time out she was at it again, winning by five lengths over the round-five course on July 8 when claimed by Stedman Curtis.She reports in fine fettle in a bid for this trophy and with title-chasing jockey Robert Halledeen taking the ride from one of his favourite trainers, she will not be easily denied.COUNTRY TRAIN has good speed and in light of this, should gallop on to the main track ahead of AUNT HILDA, SMOKIN MAN and ROCK UNION, keeping on strongly to beat the latter in decisive fashion.Also, on the 10-race programme is a highly-competitive open allowance race over a mile which brings together the down in class horses PETE’SWILDONE and ALL CORRECT, as well as the recent winners TIMFORARMS, PHINEAS, FRANFIELD and MILITARY MOVE in a field of nine.One of the down in class horses should capture this event and I select ALL CORRECT to get the better of PETE’SWILDONE.last_img read more

Arsenal transfer report: Could Gunners move again for ‘fed up’ Madrid star?

first_img Karim Benzema 1 Arsenal may be tempted into making another move for Karim Benzema after the striker revealed he is ‘fed up’ with the amount of times he is substituted by Real Madrid boss Rafael Benitez.The Frenchman scored his seventh goal of the season as Los Blancos were held to a 1-1 draw in the Madrid derby on Sunday.But Benzema was taken off six minutes before Real conceded an 83rd-minute equaliser and the 27-year-old was left bemused by his manager’s decision.“Substitutions are what the coach decides, I’m just there to help my team-mates,” Benzema told AS.“It’s true I’m fed up of being taken off. I’m calm and will continue to work so I’m not always substituted. He took me off to get a result, for defensive reasons.“It’s true that the electronic board always shows the No.9.

Reagan aide Lyn Nofziger, 81

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – Franklyn “Lyn” Nofziger, the rumpled and irreverent conservative who served President Reagan as press secretary and political adviser, died of cancer Monday. He was 81. Nofziger died at his home in Falls Church, Va., said Eldin Girdner, a family friend. Former first lady Nancy Reagan said in a printed statement Monday: “I was deeply saddened this afternoon when I heard of Lyn Nofziger’s death. Lyn was with us from the gubernatorial campaign in 1965 through the early White House days, and Ronnie valued his advice – and good humor – as much as anyone’s.” Nofziger, who joined Reagan’s ranks early in the political career of the actor-turned-politician, headed the White House political office during the first year of the Reagan presidency and then quit to form a political consulting and lobbying firm. “He was a great big garrulous guy who was very serious about his politics and very serious about Ronald Reagan,” Michael Deaver, Reagan’s deputy chief of staff, said Monday. “He was sort of the keeper of the flame. He was fun to be around,” Deaver said. “Reagan would light up when he came into the room.” Conservative columnist George F. Will once described Nofziger as “Sancho Panza” to Reagan’s Don Quixote. Asked why he was leaving the White House, Nofziger replied, “I don’t like government; it’s just that simple.” His determined irreverence extended to the Reagans. “I’m not a social friend of the Reagans,” he told an interviewer. “That’s by their choice and by mine. They don’t drink enough.” Bombay gin, outrageous puns and fierce loyalty to Reagan and conservative Republican principles were Nofziger hallmarks. His caustic wit made him a favorite among some reporters. In a town where men wear expensive suits, Nofziger stood out in his rumpled sports coats and slacks. His trademark was a tie with a picture of Mickey Mouse, a visual statement of what he thought about Washington. When Reagan won the White House, Nofziger refused to join other aides in calling their boss “Mr. President.” To him, Reagan was always “Ronnie.” Nofziger was the aide who announced to the world that Reagan had been shot in the 1981 assassination attempt by John W. Hinckley Jr. The Nofziger wit and camaraderie did not disguise the fact that he was a bare-knuckled political partisan. He had served on the Republican National Committee and as an aide to President Nixon. According to John Dean, Nofziger helped Nixon put together his infamous White House “enemies list.” Nofziger worked as a newspaper reporter and editor and then as Washington correspondent for James Copley’s chain of California papers before he teamed up with Reagan in 1966 in the former actor’s bid to be California governor. After that successful campaign, Nofziger spent 21 months in Sacramento as Reagan’s press secretary. While his distaste for government made him unwilling to be part of anyone’s bureaucracy for long, Nofziger never was far from a Reagan campaign. His unorthodox manner grated on Nancy Reagan, a fact Nofziger confirmed for any reporter who asked. But in the days after the president was shot, one of the messages Nancy Reagan received read: “The president was not the only one. You done good, too.” It was signed, “Lyn.” In 1988, after he’d left the Reagan administration to capitalize on his Washington ties, Nofziger was convicted of illegally lobbying for two defense contractors and a labor union. A year later, a federal appeals court threw out the conviction. Born in Bakersfield, Nofziger is survived by his wife, a daughter and two grandchildren. Another daughter died in 1989.last_img read more

UPROAR AS HEALTH MINISTER FREEZES NURSING HOME DEAL

first_imgFianna Fáil Senator, Brian Ó Domhnaill has slammed Minister for Health James Reilly over his decision to freeze the Fair Deal funding for people entering nursing homes.There has been shock after all allocations for funding are currently on hold while the Department for Health undertakes a review of the programme.The Fair Deal Scheme was set up to provide financial support for people needing long term nursing home care. The idea behind the scheme was that long term care should be affordable and that a person should receive the same level of State support whether they choose a public, voluntary or private nursing home.“This is a scandalous action by the Government and it shows the rank hypocrisy that is seeping out of Minister Reilly,” said Senator Ó Domhnaill.“Basically the Government has decided to freeze all allocations on the Fair Deal programme while the Minister has asked the Department to undertake a review of the scheme. This is despite funding of €1 billion being ringfenced for the scheme under Budget 2011.”“That means that anyone who is currently in hospital and has been assessed as needing long term nursing home care is now stuck in limbo. “They won’t be approved for the scheme while this review is undertaken. Instead they are left in the hospital, filling a bed while they await a decision that now has an indeterminate timeline.”“There are people all over the country who are on the scheme or waiting to get on the scheme who are now really worried about what happens next.“Some are afraid that their family home may now be seized to pay for their nursing home care. This is the kind of panic that the Minister has spread by his actions.”“What’s worse, instead of calming public fears and outlining what they have planned, the Government didn’t tell anyone about their decision to freeze the funding approvals and begin a review of the scheme.“Instead people are finding out through health officials and other channels about this. It’s the worst kind of way to treat and inform worried members of the public,” he said.
