STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – SATURDAY, JUNE 1, 2019

first_img15% 17% 13% 25% Kent Desormeaux47 22% SANTA ANITA STATISTICS 0 9 55% TRAINING LEADER O’NEILL EYES MAIDEN WIN IN STAKESDoug O’Neill, holding a comfortable 19-14 lead over Richard Baltas in pursuit of his fifth overall Santa Anita training title, hopes to increase his margin when he sends out maiden Parsimony in Sunday’s $150,000 Cinema Stakes for three-year-olds at 1 1/8 miles on turf.A Pennsylvania-bred son of Dominus owned by O’Neill’s principal client J. Paul Reddam, Parsimony last raced April 6, finishing 14th in the Grade II Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland after prompting the pace early on.In two prior races on turf at Santa Anita, however, the gray gave a good account of himself with a second and a fourth.“The horse is doing well and with a short field, we felt it was an opportunity to see if he can break his maiden in a stakes,” O’Neill said.Meanwhile, Jeff Bonde is hopeful the added furlong will benefit King of Speed in the Cinema. The chestnut son of Jimmy Creed closed ground to be fourth in the restricted Singletary at one mile on April 28, his first race in just over two months.“He kind of had a boxed in trip last time,” the trainer said. “The extra eighth should help him a lot. He can run all day. We’re hoping the extra yardage can make a difference.”The Cinema, race five of nine with a 1 p.m. first post time: More Ice, Mike Smith, 9-2; Gregorian Chant, Flavien Prat, 2-1; $4,000 supplemental nominee Rijeka, Ruben Fuentes, 8-1; Parsimony, Mario Gutierrez, 6-1; King of Speed, Victor Espinoza, 4-1; and Neptune’s Storm, Drayden Van Dyke, 7-5.SINGLE TICKET RAINBOW PICK SIX JACKPOT AT $895,108For the 24th consecutive racing day, Santa Anita’s popular 20 cent Single Ticket Rainbow Pick Six Jackpot went unsolved on Friday, resulting in a hefty Jackpot carryover of $895,108 into Saturday’s nine-race program.With $109,773 in “new” money wagered, Friday’s total Rainbow Six pool reached $979,748 and although there was no Single Ticket winner, there were 81 consolation tickets with six winners, each worth $728.60.Approximate post time for today’s fourth race which begins the Rainbow Six is 2:31 p.m.TOMORROW IS ‘TIM CONWAY DAY’ IN ARCADIATomorrow is “Tim Conway Day” in the City of Arcadia and the late comedic giant will be memorialized with a race named in his honor at Santa Anita, following which, Tim Conway, Jr. will be presented with a proclamation from the city in a Winner’s Circle ceremony.“I can’t think of a better place for all of us to come visit Dad’s money than right here at The Great Race Place,” said Tim Jr., who hosts the popular “Tim Conway Jr. Show” weeknights from 6 to 10 p.m. on KFI, AM 640.“Although he seldom cashed, he had so many great moments here, and at Hollywood Park and Del Mar. I truly believe he’d be thrilled to know that a bunch of us are going to be getting together and trying to bet on the winner of his race!”The “Tim Conway-Dorf Half Cup” will be carded as Sunday’s sixth race, with a Winner’s Circle ceremony to follow. Born Dec. 15, 1933 near Cleveland, Ohio, Tim Conway, who at one time aspired to be a jockey, passed away following a lengthy illness at age 85 on May 14.A tireless advocate for injured riders, Conway and his wife Charlene, along with Chris and Judy McCarron, founded the Don MacBeth Memorial Jockeys Fund in 1987 and raised money to assist more than 2,000 jockeys over a distinguished 25-year-run.One of the most naturally funny American-born comedians of all time, Conway, through one of his characters, jockey Dirk Dorf and in numerous other appearances on national television, brought continued high-profile exposure to Santa Anita and Thoroughbred racing.A video honoring Conway, which includes time spent at Santa Anita, will be part of the Sunday’s Winner’s Circle ceremony.VICTOR ESPINOZA TO BE HONORED BY GREGSON FOUNDATION The Edwin J. Gregson Foundation will host a charity fundraising dinner honoring Triple Crown and Hall of Fame jockey Victor Espinoza on Monday, Aug. 12, at The Fairmont Grand Del Mar Resort, a few miles south of Del Mar Race Track.Having taken a hiatus last year respective of the events surrounding the San Luis Rey Training Center fire, the Foundation is back on track for its annual fundraiser. “We’re delighted to kick things off again, and how better than to celebrate Victor and his illustrious career and accomplishments,” said Jenine Sahadi, president of the Foundation.Thrilled about the dinner, Espinoza says, “I’m honored to be recognized by the Gregson Foundation and to stand alongside fellow jockeys Julie Krone, Eddie Delahoussaye, Laffit Pincay, Jr., Mike Smith and Gary Stevens, and all past honorees who are truly a Who’s Who of California racing. I’m a long-time supporter of the Foundation and its work, and anything that is done on behalf of the stable area workers, I am behind 100 percent.”Proceeds of the event will be used for continued sponsorship of various educational and recreational programs to benefit California’s worthy backstretch workers and family members.Tickets for the event are $300 per person.

Kenny-Dowall charged with cocaine possession

first_imgKenny-Dowall failed to make the Kiwis side for tonight’s one off test against Australia in Canberra.He was last year acquitted of domestic violence after he was accused of headbutting, pushing and putting his former girlfriend Jessica Peris in a headlock.A magistrate found Ms Peris, who is the daughter of former senator Nova Peris, was an unreliable witness.The 29-year-old always maintained his innocence and said he was a stronger person for having been through the ordeal.”You don’t know how good you’ve got it until it’s that close to being taken away from you,” he said at the time.After the acquittal, Roosters coach Trent Robinson said Kenny-Dowall was in “a better place” than the previous year and needed his rugby league routine to continue.”He just wants to play footy and he wants to get back to things the way they were before,” Robinson had said.Keny-Dowall has played 20 tests for New Zealand and over 200 games for the Roosters.

Petxina Events estimates its profit at € 6.9M for Elche transfers

first_imgPetxina Events has moved file in court to request Elche CF the amount that you understand corresponds to half of the transfers made during the last eight seasons, in compliance with the contract signed with José Sepulcre at the end of 2011 in exchange for 800,000 euros. The Valencian mercantile figure in 13.8 million euros is paid by the franchisee and, based on that figure, estimates the corresponding profit at 6.9 million euros. The Valencian merchant, owned by Basilio Lopez, understands that the operations of which 50% of the sale corresponds are seven: Garry rodriguez (Paok, 250,000 euros), Cifu (Malaga, 200,000 euros), Gonzalo Villar (Valencia, 200,000 euros) and Jonathas de Jesus (Real Sociedad, 7,200,000 euros), Sergio Leon (Osasuna, 1,700,000 euros), Liberto Beltrán (Real Betis, 250,000 euros) and Sory Kaba (Dijon, 4,000,000 euros). All of them, between the 2015/16 academic year and last season, when the Guinean striker left for French football.The Petxina Events contract is appealed to the Supreme Court, but the company could request provisional execution and this could be the previous step, based on the resolution of the Provincial Court of September 22, 2017. If their amounts are real, once they are contrasted, the ilicitano club should pay 6.9 million euros. Grave would be required, by the contract of sale to Score Club 2019, to share 50% of the burden of judicial resolution.In addition, Petxina indicates in the letter sent to the Court of Elche that these credits must be considered against the mass (not subject to removal and waiting) because all these amounts accrued after the declaration of the insolvency proceedings.last_img read more
