Repeat: Lava Man wins

first_imgMany in the on-track crowd of 43,024 may have been concerned when the 6-year-old son of Slew City Slew failed to make his customary move at the three-eighths pole and open up on his opposition, but none more than owners Steve and David Kenly and Jason Wood. “I think we were all pretty worried when he didn’t kick away from them on the turn like he usually does,” Steve Kenly said. But Lava Man took a half-length lead at the head of the stretch and held off all challengers in an eight-horse field that was reduced by one when Arson Squad became a morning scratch because of a popped abscess on the top of his foot. “This was definitely a little more scary than last year,” David Kenly said. Although it might have been a bit more ugly than most of the other 12victories Lava Man has scored since being claimed for $50,000 in August 2004 at Del Mar, it counts just as much and the winner’s share of $600,000 raised his career earnings to $4,679,706. He has won 13 of 24 races and banked $4,306,103 since the claim. ARCADIA – It was only fitting that on John Henry Day at Santa Anita, another popular gelding made history of his own in the 70th running of the $1million Santa Anita Handicap on Saturday. Lava Man joined John Henry and Milwaukee Brew as the only horses to win two Big ‘Caps – all three horses won in consecutive years – when he held off Molengao by three-quarters of a length in 2:02.11 for the mile and a quarter in the second-slowest running of the race in the past 31 years. “He is just a tremendous animal,” said winning jockey Corey Nakatani, who has won nine of the 11 races that he has ridden the gelding. “Doug O’Neill and his team have him spot on every time he runs. I think he will move forward off this race because he did get a little tired at the end and the weight didn’t do him any good.” Nakatani said he waited a bit longer before making his move because of the track condition. “Today I waited and didn’t make that standard run of his because the track has been so heavy all day,” he said. “We felt he was going to get a little tired because of his last race not being that far.” Lava Man came into the race off a two-length victory in the Sunshine Millions Turf at Santa Anita on Jan. 27. That was at a mile and an eighth, the same distance he might run next if he comes out of the Big ‘Cap in good order and the connections decide to send him to the $5 million Dubai Duty Free on March 31. Lava Man went postward as the 3-5 favorite and returned $3.20. Molengao, the 7-1 second choice, was 11/2 lengths clear of third-place finisher Boboman, and it was a nose further back to McCann’s Mojave. “I just wish the wire was a little bit further,” Molengao’s rider, Victor Espinoza, said. “I can’t say for sure, but I don’t think the next time Lava Man will beat me.” art.wilson@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2103 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

This victory, Lava Man’s ninth in his past 10 starts dating to January 2006, was a little scarier than most. Unexpected slow fractions of 24.06, 48.27 and 1:12.65 meant Lava Man had to exert a little more energy in the stretch than normal. last_img read more

Subway plan gains support

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant No action was taken Thursday as board members reviewed reports outlining the costs of the 13-mile extension from Mid-Wilshire to Santa Monica and its impact on the traffic-choked corridor. “We’ve tried everything on Wilshire,” said Supervisor Yvonne Braithwaite Burke, an MTA board member, pointing to failed attempts to create a busway along the boulevard. “I know it’s not going to be immediate, but the (traffic) problem’s not going to go away. And the only way we’re going to solve it is to have some long-term solutions.” Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said talking about the subway had been hypothetical because of the prohibition on federal dollars for the work. but as the state and federal funding options open, now might be time. “There is no alternative for that part of this region for mass transit other than underground,” Yaroslavsky said. “It’s going to take time because it’s exceedingly expensive and it shouldn’t come at the expense of other projects around the region.” Still, the subway extension has some critics among the 13-member MTA board, who fear a repeat of the Red Line’s cost overruns and construction problems that drained resources from the rest of the county’s more than 80 cities. Barely more than campaign rhetoric a year ago, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s “subway to the sea” gained momentum Thursday as the MTA board warmed to the idea of marshaling resources behind a $4.8 billion Red Line extension through the Westside. Despite continued criticism that a Wilshire subway would “rob” transportation funds from the rest of Los Angeles County, a growing number of MTA board members agreed that if a costly subway should be built anywhere, it should be under Wilshire Boulevard, where it was initially envisioned 20 years ago. Now that the state is considering $12 billion in transportation bonds and Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Los Angeles, has reversed his longstanding opposition, Villaraigosa and his supporters see the chance to kick-start the project that experts agree would need help from Sacramento and Washington, D.C. “There is a real need and it will impact the entire region for us to look at this subway. That’s all were doing right now… we’re looking at it,” said Villaraigosa, who chairs the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Supervisor Michael Antonovich called the subway a “drain to the sea” and said it could “cripple” the region’s transportation program. “If somebody wants a more elaborate system, let them utilize their (resources)… but not rob the other 80-plus cities and unincorporated communities of their needs to have affordable, efficient, cost-effective transit programs,” he said. Supervisor Don Knabe also raised concerns that the subway would take priority over other projects that have been in line for funds. “We have a lot of unique needs here in Los Angeles County, the entire basin, besides subways and rail, that we can’t forget about. There has to be this program as were moving forward (so) we don’t get sidetracked.” Lisa Mascaro, (818) 713-3761 lisa.mascaro@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgJason BlackStopover in Skardu was wonderful, a fantastic opportunity to get up close with the locals in the town and capital of Skardu District, in Gilgit, Gilgit-Baltistan.Skardu is in the 10 kilometres wide by 40 kilometres long Skardu Valley, at the confluence of the Indus and the Shigar River.Skardu is at an altitude of nearly 2,500 metres (8,202 feet) .by Jason BlackThe town is surrounded by grey-brown coloured mountains, which hide the 8,000 metre peaks of the nearby Karakoram range. There are three lakes in the vicinity: Upper Kachura lake, Lower Kachura Lake, and Sadpara Lake. This small village placed at the end of civilisation for mountaineers on route to Broadpeak K2 Gashu brum 1 & 2. The locals here have embraced the mountaineers over the years as they realise its importance as it boosts the economy. Freely waking around were met with a very friendly wave & salam malaiku (hello) as both sides of the main street approx 1km long trading chemists ,drapery, electrical, fresh fruit stalls, motor mechanics and butchers with freshly hanging meat as seam to operate seamlessly.Yesterday the final provisions for base camp and high camps were bought locally , spending the evening putting rice potato veg meat snacks teas coffees & so much more were all stored safely in large blue barrels.Similarly the tents, gas and cooking equipment along with our oxygen & masks of high altitude were all tested and assembled. Today once clearance came through the jeeps loaded with the hard wear left for the famous road from Skardu to Askole and in the morning early we also will follow on the 6 hour journey.

THUG WHO VICIOUSLY BATTERED GIRLFRIEND JAILED FOR SIX MONTHS

first_imgJonathan Ayton called his ex-girlfriend, ‘A lying alcoholic b***ard.’A man with 96 previous convictions has been found guilty of assaulting his ex-girlfriend and mother of his two children at a sitting of Letterkenny District Court.Jonathan Ayton, 40, of The Close, Raphoe denied the accusations of assault against his ex-partner and criminal damage to her property in November last year. Sgt Jim Collins told the court, “I was made aware of an incident of an alleged assault that took place in Raphoe on November 19th, 2015.“Maria McCarron made a statement on the 22nd November about the alleged assault, I noted that she had bruising to her eyes, lips and forehead.“She informed me that she was assaulted by her partner Jonathan Ayton.“He was subsequently arrested in Ballybofey by Garda Kilcoyne in relation to the alleged assault.”Ms McCarron then withdrew her statement, but then decided to go ahead with the original statement, citing that she was pressurised to withdraw her original statement against Mr Ayton.Sgt Collins said, “I met Mrs McCarron at the playground in Raphoe, this was after she had withdrawn her statement, she was anxious and was very nervous, and she expressed concerns for her own safety.“The following day, I received a call from Mrs McCarron saying that she wanted to go ahead with the original statement, she said she felt pressurized to withdraw the statement.”An emotional Mrs McCarron told the court, “Me, Jonathan and his cousin Bernadette Ayton were drinking when an altercation broke out between me and Jonathan.“I was talking to Bernadette about a fella I used to see, Jonathan overheard me and he confronted me about it.“He then assaulted me, he punched me on the nose, forehead, eye and lip.“I sustained two black eyes, bruising to my body, I had cut lips, and a bruised forehead and my nose was swollen.During cross-examination Inspector Michael Harrison asked how long did the injuries take to clear up, and how was she affected by the assault.“It took well over a week for the injuries to heal, and I was completely stressed out after the incident.“I collapsed a number of times since it, and even last Sunday I collapsed, I was just in total fear.Inspector Harrison asked Mrs McCarron why she withdrew this statement.“I was asked to drop it, I was pressurised to drop the allegation and withdraw the statement.“I was told that six statements would be made against me, and that I would lose my children.“I was terrified when I was told that, so I withdrew it, but then I decided, No, I’m not going to be intimidated anymore.”Solicitor for the defendant Mr Hegarty then cross-examined Mrs McCarron.Hegarty put it to Mrs McCarron that she had in fact participated in the drinking session all day, and was intoxicated from early on.Mrs McCarron totally refuted the claims made by Mr Hegarty and said she only began drinking after she had collected her kids.Mr Hegarty then suggested that she sustained her injuries when she fell down the stairs due to the intoxicated state she was in.He also claimed she went missing for a number of days, and was away on the ‘beer’ and crashed her car because she was drink-driving.Again Mrs McCarron totally refuted the claims and said she sustained the injuries at the hands of Jonathan Ayton.Mrs McCarron said, “It wasn’t a major accident, I just hit the bumper, and I was sober driving.“I was not away on the drink, I was a secure location in Letterkenny, because I was living in fear.”Inspector Harrison expressed his disbelief and astonishment at the cross-examination by Mr Hegarty.Mr Jonathan Ayton was then called to the stand to give evidence.Mr Ayton told the court, “We went to Ballybofey, on the way back we stopped in Manny’s Bar, Convoy.“I couldn’t believe she wanted a drink, it was during the week, I sat in the car, then after ten minutes I went inside and there she was having a great time at the bar.“So I decided to have a pint, we stayed for about an hour and then we headed to get a carry-out and went to Bernadette’s house.“We were all drinking vodka and tins of Tennents. I didn’t realise she was drinking as much, but Bernadette told me, she was taking drink out of my vodka behind my back.“We then went to collect the kids, and she almost went clean over the hedge, then I realised how drunk she was.“My daughter was crying in the back seat, and asked me to drive, I was banned from driving so I couldn’t – but I urged Maria to slow down and drive carefully.“We then stopped at Coyle’s off license in Raphoe and got another carry-out, she was drink she dropped a crate of beer in the shop.“We then continued drinking in the house, I then overheard her talking about some private issues, and I wasn’t happy she was disclosing it to other people, it’s our business.“I confronted her about it and she lost the plot, and she slapped me across the face twice.“Diana Park came into the house because our daughter had contacted her in relation to the argument and she tried to calm Maria down.“Eventually I just left, because there was no talking to her.”Inspector Harrison put it to him that he was enraged she was speaking about her ex-boyfriend, and that he simply lit on her.“You were angry she was talking about her ex-boyfriend, you were really peeved and you just lit on her.“You were angry and you lashed out and beat her up.”Mr Ayton angrily refuted all suggestions and said he had confronted in a calm manner, and it was she he flew into a rage.“I was calm, I was annoyed she was disclosing business about us and I told her that, but she struck me twice.“She then fell down the stairs and I laughed at her, and that annoyed her too.Judge Paul Kelly was shown photographic evidence of the severe injuries sustained by Mrs McCarron.In his summarization, Judge Kelly said, “In your statement to Sergeant Jim Collins, you said, ‘Look Jim, the mark on my hand is a fag burn, if I hit her four times, my hands would be marked, she’s a lying alcoholic ‘b***ard’.“I’m satisfied from the photographic evidence that the injuries evident in the pictures are consistent with Mrs McCarron’s version of events.“You’ve a terrible history of violence, and it’s obvious that when you drink you lose your temper and lash out.“It’s terrible when children are involved and witness such a violent incident between their parents.“I’m going to sentence you to six months in jail, backdated from the 24th November, because you’ve been in custody since then.”Judge Paul Kelly ordered Mr Ayton to keep the peace for twelve months and ordered him to stay away from Mrs McCarron upon his release.THUG WHO VICIOUSLY BATTERED GIRLFRIEND JAILED FOR SIX MONTHS was last modified: March 20th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:assaultdonegalJonathon AytonRaphoelast_img read more

NOTORIOUS CRIMINAL RELEASED ON BAIL FOLLOWING BUNCRANA BURGLARIES

first_imgA notorious criminal has been released on bail after being arrested in connection with a spate of burglaries in Buncrana over the weekend.Jason HaugheyJason Haughey was released amidst a heavy Garda presence after appearing at Letterkenny District Court this morning. However his solicitor Patsy Gallagher asked for his client to be remanded until February 24th to address matters.Mr Gallagher claimed his client faced only one charge and was entitled to bail.The court heard that Haughey of Pairc na hAluine, Buncrana, was asleep at an address in Buncrana and found with £32 in his pocket – believed by Gardai to come from recent burglaries.Inspector Michael Harrison said he was objecting to bail because of the seriousness of the case and the fact that Haughey was unlawfully at large.The court heard that Haughey had only day of a previous sentence to serve.Another man is also due to appear in court charged with a number of alleged incidents at Cloncool Park.Mr Gallagher said there was a certain element of a ‘lynch mob’ mentality surrounding his client.But Judge Paul Kelly said there was no ‘lynch mob’ in his court.He released Haughey, who has a number of previous convictions on his own cash bond of €100 and an independent surety of €500.The case was adjourned until March to hear a direction from the Director of Public Prosecutions in the case.However solicitor Patsy Gallagher made an application to have Haughey remanded to address the technical issue that his client is technically unlawfully at large.NOTORIOUS CRIMINAL RELEASED ON BAIL FOLLOWING BUNCRANA BURGLARIES was last modified: February 17th, 2014 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)last_img read more

Late go-around

first_imgBelow is dramatic footage of an Air France A340 performing a missed approach or go-around at the famous Princess Juliana International Airport which serves the Dutch part of the island of Saint Martin.The airport is best known for the very low-altitude flyover landing approaches due to one end of its single runway being extremely close to the shore and Maho Beach.In this video an Air France performs a missed approach because of bad weather associated with a hurricane.The pilots on this flight are battling severe crosswinds.Pilots perform missed approaches if their aircraft is unstable caused by strong cross winds, severe turbulence or wind shear.Pilots are also forced to perform missed approaches if the aircraft ahead of them doesn’t exit the runway quickly enough.last_img read more
