ENCODER STALKS PACE AND WINS $75,000 EDDIE LOGAN STAKES BY ONE HALF LENGTH AS ROSARIO & SADLER TEAM FOR MILE TURF WIN IN 1:34.14

first_imgENCODER STALKS PACE AND WINS $75,000 EDDIE LOGAN STAKES BY ONE HALF LENGTH AS ROSARIO & SADLER TEAM FOR MILE TURF WIN IN 1:34.14RACE HONORS THE MEMORY OF SANTA ANITA’S ICONIC SHOESHINE ATTENDANTARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 29, 2019)–Hronis Racing’s Encoder stalked the early pace and took command turning for home en route to a half length win in Sunday’s $75,000 Eddie Logan Stakes at Santa Anita.  Ridden by Joel Rosario and trained by John Sadler, Encoder, a 2-year-old colt by English Channel, got a mile over a turf course listed as “good” in 1:34.14.A close third behind dueling leaders Goliad and Smooth Like Strait into and around the Club House turn, Encoder loomed up three-wide to engage for the lead turning for home, drew well clear and held off the late charge of longshot Hariboux for the victory.“We had a perfect trip,” said Rosario. “It looked like those two horses on the lead were running pretty good and I just followed in behind them. John said to let this horse place himself, and that’s what he did.  When I asked him, he picked it up really nice.”An even seventh in the Grade III Cecil B. DeMille Stakes at Del Mar Dec. 1, Encoder, who was ridden for the first time by Rosario, was off at 8-1 in a field of nine sophomores and paid $19.40, $9.80 and $5.60.“He’s been a little unlucky,” said Sadler.  “In the Breeders’ Cup (Juvenile Turf Sprint, finishing sixth two starts back on Nov. 1) he had to check on the backside, he got beat a couple of lengths…turf racing can go like that.  Last time, Johnny Velazquez said he didn’t have any room in the stretch…If John Velazquez tells you that, you tend not to lose confidence and move forward.”A one mile turf stakes winner in his second start on Sept. 1, Encoder, who is out of the Hard Spun mare Nono Rose, won his third race from six overall starts and with the winner’s share of $49,320, increased his earnings to $162,271.Sadler also made a point to acknowledge Santa Anita’s legendary shoeshine attendant, Eddie Logan, who operated his shoeshine stand from opening day, Dec. 25, 1934, until shortly before passing  at the age of 98 on Jan. 31, 2009.“I would like to mention Eddie Logan, who this race is named after,” he said.  “He was the shoe shine guy for one hundred years–great guy!  So Eddie, I hope you are watching upstairs.”Last for the first half mile, English-bred Hariboux rallied well to be second, 1 ½ lengths in front of Liar Liar.  Ridden by Umberto Rispoli, Hariboux was off at 34-1 and paid $27.00 and $15.00.Irish-bred Liar Liar, mid-pack early, was off at 13-1 under Dryden Van Dyke and paid $7.80 to show.Fractions on the race were 22.80, 45.63, 1:09.64 and 1:21.76.last_img read more

Post to Post for April 9 Guineas classics

first_imgThe season’s first classics, the 1000 and 2000 Guineas for native-bred three-year-old fillies and colts, respectively, will be run over a mile at Caymanas Park on Saturday, April 9 and for the second consecutive year Post to Post Betting are title sponsors.Plans for the 42nd annual Guineas Day were outlined by representatives of the sponsors and Caymanas Track Limited (CTL) at yesterday’s launch on the front lawns of Caymanas Park. Each race offers a purse of $3.25 million.According to Mikey Bell, sports betting manager, Post to Post Betting (P2P), the company has donated $4 million towards the day’s activities, including $1 million towards the purses of each Guineas, another million to support the remaining races on the card and a further million to promote the race.CTL’s racing secretary Denzil Miller Jr., said the two races, which represent the first legs of the Triple Crown series, are eagerly anticipated by racing fans.”They provide a real test for the three-year-olds for the Jamaica Derby two months later and is part of $17 million in total purses for the Triple Crown series this year,” noted Miller.He added that both races should be keenly contested, with last Saturday’s impressive Thornbird Stakes winner, the obvious ante-post favourite for the 1000 Guineas in whichothers such as SORRENTINO’S STAR, SIMPLY THE BEST, BIRD CATCHER, BUBBLING KITTEN and CLASSY AVIATOR should carry the fight to the Gary Subratie-trained filly.In the 2000 Guineas, Miller singled out CHACE THE GREAT, winner of last Saturday’s Prince Consort Stakes, along with the runner-up ORPEHUS. But he disclosed that ante-post favourite, FUTURE KING, winner of the $4.2 million Supreme Ventures Jamaica 2-Y-O Stakes over a mile last Boxing Day, is a doubtful starter.”The Wayne DaCosta-trained colt was a late scratch from the overnight allowance race last Saturday owing to a foot injury and it will be a race against time for him to recover. But as we all know, the welfare of the horse comes first and we are hoping for the best,” added the racing secretary.REACH AND ENGAGEBell said: “From our involvement last year we noted that this calendar event attracts a mixture of horse racing and sports enthusiasts, affording P2P the opportunity to reach and engage a wider cross-section of target groups with our growing product offerings, as we continue to deliver our promises that customers always ‘Get the most with Post to Post’,” he said.”Trading as P2P Betting & Gaming Entertainment, our mainstay remains primarily wagering in horse racing. Following the 2015 rebranding exercise, our horse racing product P2P AnyHorse is the lead brand in the sponsorship. And P2P AnyBet engages customers in a variety of international sports,” he added.Also speaking was Cedric Stewart, CEO of Caymanas Track Limited, while among those present were executives of Post to Post Betting, including the CEO, Sandra Donaldson, operations manager Carl Gowdie and board chairman Amber Stewart.last_img read more

Bank takes ‘possession’of MLA’s flat over dues

first_imgA Pune-based bank has taken “symbolic possession” of a flat owned by newly elected NCP MLA Dhananjay Munde here for alleged non-payment of a loan of ₹70 lakh.The NCP leader defeated his cousin Pankaja Munde in the just-concluded Maharashtra Assembly election from Parli in Beed district of central Maharashtra.The Pune-headquartered Shivajirao Bhosale Cooperative Bank Ltd. had published an advertisement/notice related to the flat in a newspaper on October 25, the day after election results were declared.‘Symbolic takeover’“Since the respondent has failed to repay the loan amount, the bank has taken symbolic possession of the property,” the notice said.In symbolic possession, the property remains in the possession of the owner.The flat in question is located at ‘Yugai Greens’ project in Model Colony in Shivajinagar here.A bank official said if the borrower fails to repay the outstanding amount, the bank will send a proposal to the Collector to take physical possession of the property.Due to “serious irregularities” in the functioning of the cooperative lender, its board was dismissed earlier this month by the RBI, which subsequently appointed an administrator to run the bank, promoted by NCP MLC Anil Shivajirao Bhosale.last_img read more
