Oxx and Tsui unleash Stars filly

first_img Sea The Stars won six Group Ones for Tsui back in 2009 and his first crop of runners have hit the racecourse this summer, with two of his 10 starters winning so far. Tsui and Sea The Stars’ trainer John Oxx have yet to team up with one of their great horse’s sons or daughters, but My Titania will get the ball rolling in the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Fillies Maiden. “She is a nice filly having her first run and hopefully she will come on for it,” said Oxx. “Like everybody else we would like a bit of rain and good ground. This is a nice start for her, though there are a couple with good placed form, including David Wachman’s Three D Alexander who was third to Tapestry (subsequent Debutante Stakes winner). “My Titania is quite precocious. Plan A was for her to be out a few months ago, but for one reason or another that didn’t happen so she is out later.” Oxx also takes the wraps off a well-bred colt in Karezak, who lines up in the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Maiden. The son of Azamour holds an early entry for next year’s Investec Derby. Oxx said: “He’s a nice big horse and needs the run. He’ll hopefully run respectably. He hasn’t been on grass much so it could come as a shock to him. He wouldn’t be as sharp as the filly (My Titania).” Owner Christopher Tsui sees the first progeny of Sea The Stars take the track in his colours as My Titania makes her racecourse bow at Leopardstown on Thursday.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgFormer Chairman of the Ghana Football Association, Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe says the poor quality of the Premier League is to blame for the abysmal performance of the Local Black Stars at the ongoing CHAN tournament in Sudan.The championship organized by CAF for home based players selected from various domestic leagues on the continent, is expected to hand the bragging rights to the strongest league on the continent.The local Black Stars finished at the foot of the Group table after failing to win a match and Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe believes the team’s woeful performance is a reflection of the Premier League.“To me what happened in Sudan is a complete reflection of the level of football in the country – we definitely don’t have any better team to put up apart from what [Coach Herbert] Addo took to Sudan. I have said time and again that poor quality players are what we have on our hands at the moment,” he added.But Chairman of the Premier League Board Welbeck Abra Appiah disagrees.

Mount skips quarantine to play a game

first_imgMason Mount, at 21 years old, has been another of the young people who is suffering from isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the United Kingdom it has not been decreed for the entire population but Mount, after the positive by Covid-19 of his partner Hudson-Odoi, is obliged to remain in his home in quarantine in case he had been infected.The young man decided to ignore it and went to play ‘una pachanga’ (five against five) with the West Ham player and former blue academy, Declan Rice, as reported by Daily Mirror. Both players went to a facility with artificial grass pitches of small dimensions located in Trent Park, a park of up to 320 hectares in the north part of London, this Sunday at noon.It was a man with his 14-year-old son, who went to train at the same facilities, who decided to notify the newspaper and even take a photograph. “I took my 14-year-old son to train, we saw a car that seemed kind of ridiculous and we wanted to see who was there. Three or four people went down and my son recognized Mason Mount, who was the driver. They were playing a five for five and they both wore a panty to cover their faces, I don’t know whether to protect themselves or not to be recognized, “he assured the Daily Mirror. This same newspaper affirms that Chelsea has limited itself to reminding Mount of its obligations while West Ham assured that Rice was “not doing anything wrong”.UK takes another route to fight virusThe UK executive has decided to take different measures than other countries to combat Covid-19. On the islands, the first minister, Boris Johnson, decided that exceptional measures would not be taken to isolate the population and allow the virus to spread to generate an alleged ‘group immunity’. Up to 229 scientists from British universities have already signed a letter sent to the government to stop a measure they estimate “it endangers more lives than necessary.”last_img read more

Kirk Brown turns Digicel Imagine Run 5K into own street party

first_img JUNIOR TEAM Llori Sharpe, only 16 years old, but distinguished as a junior Team Jamaica triathlete, crossed the finish line at 21 minutes and 47 seconds, ahead of her closest rival, 14-year-old Chantay Chamberlain. Road race veteran Arieta Martin, who is 36 years old, was third in 22 minutes and 48 seconds. “My objective was to make sure that I got out ahead of the pack that usually forms early in the race and then get into my rhythm, increase my pace and cross the finish line,” said Sharpe. The win, she says, gives her confidence to go farther as a triathlete. There were over 13,500 participants, the largest number ever for the fast-growing event. In the coming weeks, Digicel will announce the total sum raised from the 5K and will hand over the monies to the nine beneficiaries, namely, the Jamaica Autism Support Association, Jamaica Down’s Syndrome Foundation, Early Stimulation Plus, Jamaica Association on Intellectual Disabilities, Mustard Seed Communities, Special Olympics Jamaica, Jamaica Paralympic Association, Abilities Foundation and the Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf/Deaf Can Coffee. The Digicel Imagine Night Run was sponsored by Mello FM, Marksman, PayPak, Jamaica Producers Group, Urban Development Corporation, Express Fitness, Logo Stitch, Main Event, National Outdoor Advertising, Dairy Industries Jamaica Ltd., Honeybun, Innovative Signs, Jamaica Producers, ARRC Media, ProComm, The Lab, Courts Ready Cash, Courts Optical, Running Events, Urban Development Corporation, Pure National Ice, Logostitch, Gatorade and KSAC.

KIRK BROWN is turning the Digicel Imagine 5K Night Run into his own little spectacle. For the third time, Brown proved to be master of the streets and alleyways of downtown Kingston and in cool conditions on a wet road, he decimated the field to take the men’s title in the fifth staging of the annual event, which raises funds for ‘special needs’. The 29-year-old, who also won last year, was 11 seconds faster than 23-year-old Oshane Archibald, the second-place finisher. Dwayne Graham clocked a respectable 17 minutes and three seconds to take third place in the men’s category. “My aim was to come out here and win it another year. The wet roads made it a bit more challenging, but I’m glad I made it though.” The women’s segment was dominated by teenagers, two of whom placed among the top three.last_img read more
