JOCKEY QUOTES MIKE SMITH, JOLIE OLIMPICA, WINNER: “She’s that kind of horse, she deserves to be ridden confidently, she demands it as well. I just let her be and she will get the job done.”PRE-RACE: “We kind of broke out a little early going two turns for the first time (in the Grade II Buena Vista Stakes on Feb. 22). She had only run one time (locally) and she came off of a lengthy layoff. She probably needed that race. She jumped out of the gate extremely well. We’re kind of hoping she jumps out well again today and she will kind of place herself. Hopefully one or two will go and we can sit back.“We know she’s very effective going short. I do believe she’ll get a mile for sure. She should be able to do it pretty handedly, the way she’s bred she should get a mile and a half if she wanted to. It’s funny if you look at her breeding it makes you wonder where all that speed is coming from but she’s extremely talented and she’s proven herself going short, if we get a good trip she’s going to be extremely hard to beat.”TRAINER QUOTES RICHARD MANDELLA, JOLIE OLIMPICA, WINNER: “What a nice filly. She basically ran back to her race here in the Las Cienegas two-back (on Jan. 11). She was so relaxed today. She’s settled nicely into our system and now I think she’ll go longer. I think Mike could’ve done whatever he wanted (with her) today.”NOTES: The winning owner is Fox Hill Farms.
The Rugby Football League caused a stir by offering the defunct Bulls the chance to stay in the second tier of the professional game under new ownership rather than starting at the bottom of the pyramid, as the Wolfpack are doing in League 1.The Canadian newcomers are gearing up for the start of the season in March, using training facilities in West Yorkshire, but Rowley says they would be keen to start in the Championship if the opportunity arose.”We weren’t sounded out and nor were any of the Cumbrian clubs,” Rowley told Press Association Sport.”We fully supported starting at the bottom, I think that’s right.”But, if you are asking me if we would take the opportunity, absolutely yes, we would go now. I know that Barrow would do the same, I’m not too sure about the other two, Whitehaven and Workington, although I’d be surprised if they refused it.”The whole situation is confusing and not consistent with messages that have been given out previously when other clubs have been in similar situations. It creates unrest and debate.”The one thing we all agree on is that we all want Bradford strong and safe but we do with Sheffield and York and other clubs as well so it’s no different. The rules need to be laid down early and then nobody can complain.”Who knows but if someone asks us the question, then we’re ready. But really the option, if it’s going to anyone, should go to the Cumbrian clubs – two got relegated and one missed out on promotion.”That’s what I believe but, if someone wants to give it to us, we’ll take it.”Toronto have signed former Salford prop forward Adam Sidlow from Bradford to take their number of full-time players to 22, not including three trialists who came from the club’s scouting mission in Jamaica and North America.”It’s not enough for the rigours of the season,” admitted Rowley. “We’re thin in some areas.”But we’ve set ourselves a budget and we want to stick within that. We’re pretty much done but we’ll keep looking.”Wolfpack will play the second of two opposed training sessions with Halifax on Saturday and one against Huddersfield next week before playing friendlies against Hull and Wigan.

By Ashraf DabieSeventy-one-year-old Chitraykha Sankar, a mother of seven, succumbed to injuries she sustained moments after being run over by a canter (motor lorry) a short distance from her Lot 61 Houston, Greater Georgetown home on Thursday at about 7:00h.Dead: Chitraykha SankarReports reaching Guyana Times detail that the accident occurred as the woman was making her way over the Houston Public Road in returning home from clinic. She was unable to complete the crossing, as the canter, registered to K&G Shipping Company and heading towards Georgetown, swept her off the street.Ramnarace Sugrim, a family friend of the deceased, was present at the scene of the accident and explained what transpired: “Well, she coming from the west side to the east side (of the roadway), and she came up to the crossing and the truck was coming, and then the truck pick she up and brace the wall (median) with her, carrying she under the truck.”Sugrim indicated that Sankar sustained severe injuries to her head and about her body, and succumbed minutes after the accident despite him making every effort to assist her.When this publication visited the residence of the deceased, her children and grandchildren were in profound shock over the incident. Nanda Sankar, daughter of the deceased, revisited the moment when she received the news, and outlined what had transpired when she rushed to the scene.“My neighbour, he come and start banging on the door and said my mother got in an accident. When I go out there, she was lying on the ground with blood all over her face,” a distraught Nanda said.The devastated daughter noted that her mother had not yet died, but after she had failed to secure assistance to get her to the hospital, the woman succumbed to her injuries.And Sankar’s granddaughter (who requested anonymity) reiterated that response in rendering assistance to her injured grandmother had been slow. “My grandmother was a peaceful woman, and she get a sudden death that I can’t believe it. We ask so many persons to give we assistance, but no one gave us. Even the soldiers (ranks present at the scene) we asked and they drive away.”She also conveyed the inappropriate reaction of the driver of the K&G canter following the incident. “The driver was behaving bad! He ain’t behave nice at all! That is a driver, and he supposed to give assistance, and he ain’t give nothing at all. He even curse up my husband,” the distressed woman indicated.Guyana Times understands that this driver was seen boarding a minibus and seemingly fleeing the scene. However, he was later discovered to be at the Ruimveldt Police Station when Sankar’s relatives went to file a report. He was taken into police custody, and was later present at the scene of the accident, assisting with the investigations.
“It should be a good game,” Richard Perez said, referring to a match between Saugus and West Ranch on Tuesday. “They are a young team, but Cassandra knows how to work them hard.” And it seems her work has paid off. Despite the fact that many of the girls on the team are new to the game, the recent win has made them shed their fears. “We need to keep proving people wrong,” sophomore Lauren Bermudez said. “This gave us more respect for our team,” junior Alexa Putledge added. The future of the Wildcats is still uncertain. Frequent errors in previous games didn’t exactly give them a great start. But Perez and her girls feel confident a spot in the playoffs is reserved for the gold and blue. “The playoffs are realistic,” Perez said. For this team there is only room to grow, she said, adding: “We are looking at a great season next year.” email@example.com (661) 257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The young team had no seasoned seniors batting or pitching, but that didn’t stop them from taking on the revered team from Hart last week, removing them from their No. 1 CIF spot during West Ranch’s first league game. The Wildcats beat the Indians 4-2 on Friday. As team members stretched for their first practice since the big win, the girls still seemed mesmerized by their upset. “It was a confidence booster,” one girl said. “Like a dream,” another one offered, laughing. But one person in the stands wasn’t surprised. “You know what the first text message I got said?” asked Cassandra Perez, West Ranch’s softball coach. “I can’t believe you guys won. But since the ninth grade I have known what you guys can do.” As she watched her girls running the bases earlier this week, Perez said she never saw drawbacks to being the head of a new team. “I am really lucky,” Perez said. “These are good girls who aren’t afraid to work hard. … This will definitely make people pay attention.” Saugus softball coach Richard Perez said he had his eyes on the Wildcats long before last week’s showdown. Cassandra Perez used to coach at Saugus, so the Centurions are aware of what she can do.

Donegal Under 12 Schoolboys teamDonegal U12 schoolboys got their Foyle Cup preparations under way as they lifted the Donegal Challenge Cup in Ballyare on Saturday.This quadrangular tournament saw the hosts, along with East Donegal; Maiden City (Derry) and Carninny Youths from the Northern Ireland premier league compete in a round-robin tournament.The hosts took to the field in the first game against their East Donegal counterparts, a game they won on a scoreline of 3-0. The second game saw them take on Maiden City academy and again they came out on top on a scoreline of 5-1, with Jason McDaid helping himself to four goals.This set up a winner takes all final game against the Ballymena lads, as they had also won their two respective games. The hosts aided by a stiff breeze got off to the perfect with two goals inside the first ten minutes form Conor Black. They stayed on top throughout the first half to lead 3-0 with the third coming from Stephen Black from a corner.Carninny Youths to their credit never gave up and played some nice football in the second half. However, three further goals by Ciaran Moore, Jason McDaid and ‘Dixie’ Ferry saw the Donegal schoolboys prevail on a final scoreline of 5-1.Overall, team manager Kevin McHugh can be reasonably happy with today’s showing but will know that much tougher tests lie ahead in the Foyle Cup in two weeks time.

Click on the video above to witness quite possibly one of the worst umpiring decisions you’re ever likely to see.The incident occurred during the match between St Michael’s U16’s and Carrickmore at the Paul McGirr Memorial Ulster U16 club champions competition. St Michael’s won the match and now face Belfast side St Brigid’s in the semi-final on Saturday.As the St Michael’s midfielder bares down on goal, he skews his effort clearly wide, however both umpires signalled a point.Which resulted in the inevitable and understandable reaction of the partisan crowd.Adult language is used, as ‘Mickey’ the umpire comes in for some fierce criticism from the side-lines.
