CLEOPATRA’S STRIKE OVERHAULS ACCLIMATE LATE TO WIN GRADE II, $200,000 JOHN HENRY TURF CHAMPIONSHIP BY ONE LENGTH

first_imgCLEOPATRA’S STRIKE OVERHAULS ACCLIMATE LATE TO WIN GRADE II, $200,000 JOHN HENRY TURF CHAMPIONSHIP BY ONE LENGTH; TRAINED BY D’AMATO & RIDDEN BY CEDILLO, SMART STRIKE GELDING GET 1 ¼ MILES ON TURF IN 1:58.22      ARCADIA, Calif. (Sept. 28, 2019)–Ontario Canadian-bred Smart Strike stalked the early pace set by Acclimate and overhauled his well-fancied stablemate late to take Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 John Henry Turf Championship by one length, providing former Northern California kingpin Abel Cedillo with his first-ever Santa Anita stakes win.  One of three Phil D’Amato-trained horses in the John Henry, Cleopatra’s Strike got a mile and one quarter on turf in 1:58.22.Fourth at the rail, about five lengths off the lead as the horses crossed the wire for the first time, Cleopatra’s Strike, who had been based at Woodbine Racecourse in Toronto prior to making his first start for D’Amato two starts back here on Jan. 5, angled off the rail at the quarter pole, headed Acclimation a sixteenth out and in furious final drive, won going away.“Phil told me to ‘make sure to keep him off the pace,’” said Cedillo.  “If he was going to stay with Acclimate (who was ridden by Victor Espinoza), it was going to go bad.  I knew if I could keep him on the bit, he was going to come home. I got a perfect trip. I was just sitting inside and everybody got tired and I just went.  I tried to go with Victor (at that point), because I know that horse is tough on the lead.”Most recently a close second in a second condition turf allowance going 1 1/8 miles at Del Mar Sept. 2, Cleopatra’s Strike, a 6-year-old Smart Strike gelding, was off at 9-1 in a field of eight 3-year-olds and up and paid $20.60, $8.60 and $4.60.“I was confident in his ability, I just didn’t know what his distance limitation may or may not be,” said D’Amato, who in addition to the one-two finishers, saddled longshot Ya Gotta Wanna, who finished seventh. “He trained like a horse that could go a mile and a quarter and Abel rode him to perfection.”Owned by Slam Dunk Racing and Michael Nentwig, Cleopatra’s Strike registered his first stakes win and picked up $120,000 for the victory, boosting his earnings to $376,844 while improving his overall mark to 25-4-9-2.Acclimate, a 5-year-old California-bred gelding by Acclamation, came off a gate to wire score in the Grade II Del Mar Handicap Aug. 17 and ran another huge race on the lead today.  Off as the 5-2 second choice, he paid $5.00 and $3.20 while running second by three quarters of a length.Richard Mandella’s United, the 2-1 favorite, checked in third, 1 ¾ lengths in front of Oscar Dominguez. Off as the 2-1 favorite with Flavien Prat, United paid $2.60 to show.Fractions on the race were 22.79, 46.05, 1:09.75 and 1:34.28.last_img read more

Barcelona plays its scoring hegemony in the League

first_imgThis Sunday at the Bernabéu will live the Classic number 244 of history. Some parties that have as main attraction your most absolute equality, as evidenced by the fact that Barcelona adds a total of 96 victories by 95 of Real Madrid, apart from 52 draws, throwing a total of 243 matches.Barcelona has in its hands the possibility of putting a little more land in the middle and adding the win number 97 -They have been four consecutive at the Bernabéu-, while Real Madrid could match their numbers with the Blaugrana club, counting their 96 win, and thus put the swords on high.But the equality between the two is such that until they only surpass a goal in the history of the League. After the win on the last day against Eibar (5-0), Barcelona reached 6,151 goals, beating Real Madrid (6,150), which lost to Levante (1-0). Barcelona has needed almost five decades to get ahead of Real Madrid in these statistics. There’s no doubt the emergence of Leo Messi has been fundamental to reach this spectacular ‘sorpasso’. And it is that when the Argentine debuted at Barça in 2003, Madrid were 71 goals ahead of the Blaugrana. So, in these seventeen years they have scored 72 goals more than the whites in the League.Rivalry is also on high if we refer to goals scored in the Classics, as Real Madrid adds 403 to 399 of Barcelona. That means that the first one to score on the Blaugrana side will have the honor of putting his name in golden letters of the club’s history by signing goal 400, as did César Rodriguez (100) in his day in 1952, Bernd Schuster ( 200) in 1980 and Luis Enrique (300) in 2000.And to confirm that equality is the absolute protagonist of the clashes between Barça and Real Madrid, it is only possible to add that both teams add 72 victories in the duels played in the league championship.last_img read more

PSC calls out Govt on underfunding of security sector

first_imgThe Private Sector Commission (PSC) has expressed its grave concern at Government’s underfunding of the various law enforcement agencies.This was related to Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan during a meeting with a delegation from the PSC. The engagement saw a range of issues affecting the nation’s prison system being discussed and solutions sought to some of the challenges facing the Guyana Prison Service (GPS) in particular.Among those issues addressed were the lack of adequate transportation; the general conditions under which prisoners are being held, especially at the Lusignan Prison since the fire at the Georgetown Prison and the threat posed to prison warders as a result of these conditions; and the lack of smoke detectors which would serve to provide early warning of any fires at the various prisons.The PSC delegation, led by its Chairman Desmond Sears, commended the Public Security Ministry for recent improvements which have been made within the prison system with regard to the supply of water and the upgraded road leading to the Lusignan Prison.However, it did register concerns at the underfunding of the Police, prison and fire services.Nevertheless, on the issue of the lack of transportation, Chairman of the PSC’s Governance Sub-committee, Captain Gerald Gouveia, indicated that since the fire at the Camp Street Prison there is no kitchen facility there and as such, food has to be transported daily from Lusignan.“I am advised that quite often the food arrives hours late and in some cases is spoilt when it gets to Georgetown,” Gouveia said during the meeting. He also drew attention to the lack of transportation at the New Amsterdam Prisons which affected the timely movement of prisoners to the court and for medical attention.To this end, the PSC recommended that some of the buses currently at the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) Camp Ayanganna headquarters should be reassigned to the Guyana Prison Service to alleviate the critical logistics problems which it faces.However, Minister Ramjattan pointed to a number of constraints which his Ministry faces as well as identified a menu of initiatives upon which it has embarked in an effort to resolve some of the issues.Following the meeting, the PSC dispatched a letter to the Minister documenting its concerns along with its recommendations.last_img read more

Bruins’ turnover not bad

first_img“Oh my gosh, it was killing me,” said Collison, a sophomore. “I knew what I could do. It was like they doubted me. I knew Jordan was good, himself, but I felt I could put that standard on myself.” Collison alleviated any concerns with his play early in the season – which included a MVP performance at the Maui Invitational – and he has No. 4 UCLA on the precipice of a second straight Pacific-10 Conference championship. During an offseason of inquisitions about replacing Jordan Farmar as UCLA’s point guard, Darren Collison often smiled, then gave politically correct answers about being ready to prove his worth. Truth be told, though, the whole thing wore on him. The Bruins (24-3, 13-2 Pac-10) can clinch at least a share of the conference title by defeating Stanford today at Pauley Pavilion, and are in line to secure the West’s No.1 seed in next month’s NCAA Tournament. Now, the only uncertainty regarding Collison’s play is whether UCLA is better with him at the point, or if the Bruins were better last season, when Farmar helped them to the NCAA championship game before losing to Florida. “They’re two different type of points guards,” said UCLA sophomore power forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. “There are some things Jordan brings to the table that Darren doesn’t bring to the table, and (things) Darren brings to the table that Jordan didn’t have. It’s a different style of play. With Darren, we play a little bit faster.” Collison is a better defender, and quicker on offense, but scouts have said Farmar ran the half-court offense better last season and was able to get off shots in tight space when the shot clock was winding down. center_img In fact, Collison, 6-foot-1 and 165 pounds of energy and quickness, is having a better statistical season than Farmar did in helping UCLA to a 32-7 mark. “Last year I sat and watched a lot, so I knew he was a great player,” UCLA redshirt sophomore wing Josh Shipp said. “He would go against Jordan every day in practice and hold his own. I was never worried. We all knew what he could do. There was never a question that he could replace Jordan. I had no doubts. I saw it every day.” Statistically, Collison is averaging 13 points, 5.9assists, 2.3 rebounds and 2.2 steals in 32 minutes per game. Farmar averaged 13.5points, 5.1 assists, 2.6rebounds and 1.1 steals in 30.4 minutes per game. Also, Collison is averaging 2.8 turnovers and shooting 52.5 percent from the field, including 50 percent (41 of 82) from 3-point range. Farmar turned the ball over 3.6 times per game and shot 41 percent from the field, including 33.3 percent (63 of 189) from beyond the arc. “I remember everybody asking a question about Darren going into the season,” UCLA coach Ben Howland said. “I never expressed any reservation. I thought he’d have a very good year, and he is. It’s not anything that’s unexpected. He played 19minutes a game as a freshman.” Other factors must be looked at in comparing the sophomore seasons of Collison and Farmar, including a more mature and seasoned team surrounding Collison. Junior guard Arron Afflalo, UCLA’s leading scorer, is more mature and a better offensive player than he was last season – when he also led the Bruins in scoring – and Shipp, who sat out most of last season, takes some of the scoring pressure off Collison. UCLA also runs more this season, largely because of Collison’s willingness to push the tempo, and that creates more opportunities for assists and easy baskets. “Darren brings different things,” Afflalo said. “It’s not about his ability to do what Jordan did, because Jordan brought some different things, like leadership-wise. But Darren’s natural athleticism, which it seems he was just born with, he’s capable of putting our team in a different place.” Collison’s value to the Bruins was shown on a national level the past twoSaturdays. During a made-for-television game at West Virginia, the Bruins’ offense was out of rhythm and lacked composure at crucial times as Collison sat on the bench, unable to play because of a sprained left shoulder. Then, last week at Arizona, Collison dazzled a CBS audience with 17 points and 15 assists (one off the school record). He turned over the ball only twice in 35 minutes, and showed his quickness, speed and deft jump-shooting touch – despite his less than aesthetically pleasing motion by making 5 of 7 attempts from 3-point range. “I don’t think there’s a better point guard in America than Darren Collison,” Arizona coach Lute Olson said. “Collison is a great, great point guard. He gets into the lane and he’s one of the toughest guys around to keep out of the lane because he’s so quick. Plus, he defends like crazy.” The next inevitable comparison centers on the NBA. Despite being advised by many people to return to UCLA, Farmar opted for the pros after his second season and was a late first-round pick of the Lakers. Sources say UCLA expects Collison to return next season, where he can play himself into the top half of the draft. “In the offseason there was nothing I could do about people doubting me,” Collison said. “There’s nothing I can do right now, whether I’ll be back after this season.” As for the comparisons, Collison said there is only one way to measure them. “When I first came into the season, my goal was to get back in the national championship (game),” he said. “So I still haven’t accomplished anything yet.” brian.dohn@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
