Jockey Brice Blanc was aboard for the drill, but regular rider Flavien Prat will be up again in the La Brea.Bellafina was “in tight” in the Breeders’ Cup race, but was gaining at the end of seven furlongs, beaten only three-quarters of a length by Covfefe, winner of six of her eight career starts and likely to be crowned three-year-old filly champion of 2019 off her glowing record.“I think that’s Bellafina’s best race to date,” Callaghan said of the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint which was held at Santa Anita for a record 10th time. “She ran over a 100 Beyer (104) for the first time and I think we’ve really found what she wants to do, and that’s (run) seven-eighths.“Hopefully, we’ll have a good year with her. After the La Brea we’ll give her a little time and wait for Keeneland in April. I think we’ll have a fun rivalry with Covfefe going forward.”Entries for Thursday’s opening day card will be taken tomorrow.First post time opening day will be 11:30 a.m. Admission gates open at 9:30 a.m.First post time Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 27, 28 and 29, will be 12:30 p.m. with admission gates opening at 10:30 a.m. Santa Anita will be dark for live racing Dec. 30 and 31 and resume live racing on New Year’s Day, Wednesday, Jan. 1, at 12:30 p.m.BAFFERT SENDS OUT TWO IN BID TO UPSET OMAHA BEACHBob Baffert seeks his fourth victory in the prestigious Runhappy Malibu Stakes on opening day when he sends out Much Better and Santa Anita Derby winner Roadster.The two-time Triple Crown-winning trainer is first to admit he’ll have to beat Omaha Beach to get the money even though both of his runners have shown an affinity for the seven furlong distance of the Grade I Malibu, which Baffert won last year with McKinzie and in 2011 with The Factor and 2013 with Shakin It Up.“I’d be OK with them going seven-eighths if Omaha Beach wasn’t in there,” Baffert said. “A horse that looks good too is Complexity (winner of three of five for Chad Brown and scheduled to work at Santa Anita tomorrow).”ROSARIO EYES BACK-TO-BACK SAN ANTONIO WINS ON GIFT BOXJoel Rosario seeks a repeat win on Gift Box in the San Antonio Stakes when he rides the six-year-old for John Sadler opening day. Gift Box worked five furlongs Friday in 1:00.20.Rosario won the Grade II event last Dec. 26, then followed with a nose triumph over McKinzie in a thrilling renewal of the Grade I Santa Anita Handicap.Agent Ron Anderson also has Rosario booked on Mother Mother in the La Brea Stakes and Mucho Unusual in the Lady of Shamrock Stakes Thursday, and Encoder in the Eddie Logan Stakes Friday. Mother Mother worked six furlongs today in a bullet 1:12.80 while Encoder worked five furlongs in 1:01.80.STORM THE COURT IN FIRST BREEZE BACK SUNDAYStorm the Court, upset winner of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile on Nov. 1 at odds of nearly 46-1, is scheduled to have his first workout Sunday since that race, in which he thrust himself firmly in the mix for an Eclipse Award as outstanding two-year-old male.“He’ll probably work four furlongs,” said Peter Eurton, who trains the bay son of Court Vision, and depending on weather, could embark on the Triple Crown trail in February or March.With the division seemingly wide open, Eurton and his connections are optimistic about the colt’s chances of being named champion when honors are announced at the 49th annual Eclipse Awards dinner Jan. 23 at Gulfstream Park.“We’re hoping for the best, plus all the horses that came out of the Juvenile have done well,” Eurton said. “We’re going to show up for the awards, enjoy the day and hope things go our way. Right now it looks like he’s going to start back (to the races) in February, but if he doesn’t make it because of the weather, we’ll wait until March. We have lots of options.” SANTA ANITA’S ‘SEABISCUIT’ SERVES AS HANDS-ON FOR AUTISTIC CHILDRENFighting Furrari, better known as the primary horse used in the 2003 movie “Seabiscuit,” has been retired from his duties as Santa Anita’s mascot and has been relocated to the Square Peg Foundation in Half Moon Bay, California, which specializes in providing horses for emotional support for children with Autism.While a winner of just one of his 16 career starts on the track, Fighting Furrari was one of the most recognized horses at Santa Anita. Also known by his barn name “Fred,” the 21-year-old gelding has been tacked up in the authentic Seabiscuit attire and led to the infield round pen on weekends to the delight of fans. His handler would educate, answer questions and allow people young and old to pet him, watch him do tricks and be lunged or ridden around the ring.Over the years, when Santa Anita was closed for live racing, “Fred” would be turned out at a local stable under the care of Candace Coder Chew, Santa Anita’s Director of Print & Graphics and the President of CARMA, the California Retirement Management Account which overseas grants for Thoroughbred aftercare programs in the state, where he would be ridden on the trails and in the show ring.“It is fitting that Fred will live out his days doing what he does best, taking care of young children,” said Chew. “A few years ago, Ability First came to Santa Anita with a number of autistic and Down syndrome children. In addition to all of the kids petting Fred and giving him carrots, one young boy got to lead Fred around the walking ring. With cameras flashing, the boy marched around that ring, talking to the horse the entire time.“Later, we were told the boy was non-verbal, and that the horse seemed to connect with him on some level, encouraging speech. It was an incredible thing to witness–the almost ethereal connection between an autistic child and a horse. As Fred was getting older, Square Peg presents him with the best retirement possible as it will allow him to be lovingly cared for and to continue to do what he does best.”Since 2004, Square Peg, a certified CARMA program and an accredited TAA charity, has used retired racehorses as therapeutic horses for children with variety of diagnosis, including Autism. Some of the horses are ridden, while others provide an emotional connection for the kids who may have never been exposed to horses. Fighting Furrari now lives on the beautiful hillside facility in Northern California with eight other horses, several cats and a Bloodhound. He is adapting well and will soon have his duties defined.Fighting Furrari landed his “Seabiscuit” role because of his remarkable physical likeness to the 1940 Horse of the Year. Like the original Seabiscuit, he also has always connected with the people around him. “Fred” earned less than $5,000 on the racetrack, but he was a champion in the show ring. In his younger years, he teamed with a young Randi Pomrehn, who campaigned him with much success in local shows, winning many jumping championships. A succession of female handlers attended to him at Santa Anita, and his duties included running with the winners of the Santa Anita Derby Day 5k, appearing at the Arboretum for orchestral performances, being featured in numerous movie and television shows and greeting many different groups at Santa Anita.For more info on the Square Peg Foundation, see www.squarepegfoundation.org.

Quique Setién already warned at the presentation press conference as coach of Barcelona that his intention was to bring “the north wind” to the club. The truth is that he has brought the entire Cantabrian galley because the storm that is falling in Catalonia of rain and wind does not remind him of the oldest in the place. However, for a ‘chicarrón’ from the north like Setién this inclement weather is not an impediment to continue with the daily work routine.And is that more than one in the locker room expected clemency from Setién to which he was falling this afternoon in Barcelona, but the coach was inflexible, citing the entire squad to field number 1, better known as Tito Vilanova, of the Ciutat Esportiva. Some suggested the possibility of exercising in the sports hall, but Setien dismissed it bluntly. Hence, more than one player will jump to the field more astonished and perplexed than anything else. Who reflected his strangeness most angrily at Setien’s decision to train in the open was one of the captains, Gerard Piqué, that before jumping to the field his laments could be clearly heard: “At least we have canceled a training! “. His teammates tried to gut heart, jumping into the field with a loud sound:”Go Go!“.What is clear is that The Setién method has entered the dressing room in a way as natural as it is unappealable. Since it landed on January 14, the team has not had any holiday – annulled the one it had planned on Wednesday, January 15 -, called a double session on his first day at the head of the team and set up a session the same day of the game. And that without hardly making noise or anyone in the locker room mounted in anger.
Once the peak of coronavirus transmissions in the country has been surpassed, China begins to glimpse the return to normality and, therefore, the return of its football. The trickle of Spanish players and coaches is already constant, although traveling to the Asian giant is not being easy. Óscar Céspedes, Dani Acosta, Erica Hernández and Jordi EscuraMembers of the Qingdao Huanghai coaching staff led by Juanma Lillo, took almost 48 hours to reach their place of work and now they live their particular Big Brother. “We have a camera that records our door 24 hours a day. We cannot leave for another 14 days,” Escura discovers.The odyssey of the Spanish expedition began last Monday in Barcelona. His first flight, to Frankfurt, came out to ask: “We did not find any kind of control.” From Germany they traveled to Shanghai, where the complications began: “The flight went well, but after landing we had to wait three hours inside the plane. Then we had to fill out papers, download the app with which they control the disease … “In total, another three hours that led them to miss the flight to Qingdao. Air traffic has been drastically reduced, so they had to wait 13 hours until the next plane: “We had to spend the night there, but we couldn’t leave the airport because that would have forced us to quarantine in Shanghaiso we slept in some chairs. “ At eight in the morning the next day, when the endless story seemed to be coming to an end, Céspedes, Acosta, Hernández and Escura found that on the flight, in which they had reserved four seats, there was only room for two people: “We told them we all had to go and they managed to fix it. A girl who looked like she was taken from ‘Encounters of the third phase’ accompanied us at all times.” Already in Qingdao, the Spanish expedition again passed the relevant controls. Then a coach took them one by one to the door of their house. “A person accompanies you until you enter to ensure that we do not ‘escape’In total, almost 48 hours of travel spent “with a cupcake, a bun, a juice, water and crackers.”Now, both Óscar Céspedes, Dani Acosta, Erica Hernández and Jordi Escura are in guarded 24 hours a day. A camera records their doors to make sure they are quarantined. They cannot leave. Neither to buy: “You have to order anything you want online and the doorman uploads it to the front door“It may be strict, but this is how China has managed to link two days without contagion:” They don’t gamble with those of us who come from outside. Every day they come to take our temperature to make sure that the virus does not bounce. “Forced to turn aroundIt was complicated, but Céspedes, Acosta, Hernández and Escura managed to get to China. Lucky he didn’t run Roberto Mickel, a member of the Shenzhen Sports Directorate. The man from Tenerife traveled to Barcelona, but was forced to turn around due to the impossibility of finding a safe flight to his final destination. “One of the problems is that companies like Qatar Airways or Emirates have canceled their flights from Spain and this greatly reduces the possibility of seeking a safe stopover.“Mickel said on social networks.

Building on other people’s property, in streets and alleys throughout the country or on lands belonging to government is a very common thing in Liberia.For example, a certain prominent Liberian, especially during the Taylor administration, built a huge concrete house on someone else’s property. But while he was yet digging his foundation, people came to him and advised him to stop, because the land belonged to an older Liberian with many children. But this Taylor official refused to listen and continued until he completed his huge one story structure. Now the matter is in court and the family is insisting that he ‘carry’ his house since they do not want it—they only want their land. This precisely is the theme of this Editorial—Dishonesty and Indiscipline Lead to Disaster and Tears.Even the Daily Observer, believe it or not, has itself become a victim of this. Before we acquired our new Paynesville property, our bankers required a complete survey of the premises. We did, and all the neighbors confirmed the seller’s ownership of the land. There were woodworkers (mostly carpenters) occupying part of the premises, who paid the caretaker ‘something’ monthly.When the Daily Observer moved on the premises, the woodworkers continued to occupy the unused part of the land. Then they surreptitiously (secretly, stealthily) built a concrete structure on the land and installed a machine in it. When they were asked who gave them the permission, they replied, “a man behind the property.” We called the Police, and the woodworkers admitted their wrong, begged and apologized. The Police Officer told them NOT to operate that machine until they had settled with the Observer management, and they respectfully agreed.But that is how people get into trouble—trouble entirely of their own making; and when the day of reckoning comes, they lose everything they had built without authority, sometimes even their belongings, and begin to cry. Who is to blame but themselves?Is that not what happened recently to the squatters in Fendall and to those in Point Four on Bushrod Island on Monday? We all know that we Liberians are a very undisciplined people. That is why we have serious difficulties at work, whether in a public or private sector. We have heard many lamentations about Liberian contractors who have gotten paid to construct people’s buildings, but failed to perform. What should have taken a few months takes years; and sometimes the project is never completed.Look at how many of our people working for government perform on the job. In all too many GOL offices the workers demand “lunch” or “cold water” before they can push a piece of paper from one desk to another. That is why there is so much corruption in government. And the foreign businessmen know this only too well, and that is why most of them have no respect for Liberians. These business people know that all GOL people want is money and the business people can get anything they want. Our indiscipline is endemic (common, widespread) and we carry it everywhere. Do we know how many Liberian accountants and lawyers, in positions of responsibility even in the United States, have fallen from grace to grass because of dishonesty and indiscipline? Why put up a structure of whatever kind, even a mat or zinc one, in an alley or a street, when you know fully well it is wrong? Why build on someone else’s property when you know it will, sooner or later, come back to bite you? They say fences make good neighbors. How true! For if one builds a fine home on, say, an acre of land, or even on a lot, and leaves some space, without fencing it, then leaves the country for an indefinite period, when he/she returns people would have built on the vacant places and insist that they “bought it” from somebody. Somebody who? When the squatter knew fully well he or she was building on someone else’s land.That is what happened to the people in Fendall, to those near the old premises of the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company, to those in Point Four and even to those who built on the Ducor Intercontinental Hotel land on Snapper Hill.And when the government deems it necessary to develop the alleys, streets and highways in the middle of which people have built, they cry foul, demanding “compensation” and “relocation”. They also demand time to move—time that will never be enough!We hope that the people of Point Four will understand that Mary Broh is only doing her job. And we all know that she is a woman of ACTION, who takes NO NONSENSE from anyone.Our people have got to learn to be honest and disciplined, otherwise they (indeed we) will always be in trouble.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Have you heard that some cases of corneal blindness can be cured by stem cells #– from the person’s own eyes? New Scientist recounted some recent successes for victims blinded in one eye by burns or acid. Stem cells taken from the limbus, a disk surrounding the iris, and transplanted onto the damaged cornea, were able to regrow corneal cells and give the patients nearly perfect vision again. 82 cases have been successfully treated this way. The report said this is a boost for valid stem cell therapies after recent reports of a death caused by an untested technique and scandals caused by private clinics offering bogus treatments.This story reminds us that the toolkit for regeneration may exist in the human body, but in a damaged state (03/31/2010). In a perfectly-functioning, uncursed world, are these methods the Creator might have built in to keep systems in good repair?(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
