Campesino for Gladiator Trophy feature race at Caymanas

first_imgSix starters have been declared for today’s open-allowance feature over 1400 metres for the Gladiator Trophy, including super fit CAMPESINO, who faces two tough opponents in PHINEAS and LONG RUNNING TRAIN.Significantly, all three were prepared for the December 5 Diamond Mile, but none managed to get into the race, having failed to secure the necessary earnings to make the top 16. They were placed on the reserve list instead, and with the first 16 entries standing their ground, CAMPESINO, in particular, at number one on the reserve list, failed to squeeze into the race, much to the displeasure of his owner Howard Hamilton.Today, CAMPESINO has a glorious opportunity to resume winning ways with outgoing champion jockey Dane Nelson riding for 14-time champion trainer Philip Feanny.CAMPESINO is still in fine fettle following his good second to the progressive POKER STAR in the fast-run Glen Mills Caribbean Sprint on November 14.In this small field, the five-year-old son of Campadre-Yaella should get first run on the recent Coca Cola Invitational Mile winner PHINEAS from the Andrew McDonald stables and Harry Parsard’s 3-y-o filly LONG RUNNING TRAIN, now bidding for a hat-trick, into the straight. And this should prove a decisive factor in CAMPESINO’S winning bid.PHINEAS beat him by 13/4 lengths when they last met over this trip back in June and went on to beat none other than subsequent Diamond Mile winner SEEKING MY DREAM by a head in the Invitational Mile. But CAMPESINO enjoys a 4.5 kg swing in the scales today, and, if anything, is a better horse now. He thus gets my vote.The day’s supporting feature for the War Zone Sprint Trophy has attracted 12 starters, including top contenders ROYAL ASSAULT, with Shane Ellis riding for trainer Anthony Nunes and recent winner FEARLESS FURY, who is unbeaten in two starts. The latter will be ridden by promising 4.0 kg claiming apprentice Dane Dawkins for trainer Fitzroy Glispie, and the fact that he is set to receive 7.0 kg from the speedy ROYAL ASSAULT, tilts the balance in his favour.I also like ELVIRA in the second race; JAMAI RAJA in the third for maiden two-year-olds; as well as down-in-class RAGING PROSPECT IN The fifth; YOGA in the sixth; and the recently disqualified winner, PRINCE O’SHAUN, in the 12th and final.last_img read more

Your Acre of Africa

first_img15 March 2005My Acre of Africa is a unique initiative to raise funds for the preservation of southern Africa’s wildlife and wild lands, as well as for a remarkable environmental education facility to be built in the Kruger Park, one of the world’s greatest wildlife reserves.Individuals and organisations from all over the world can buy bricks for the paths, camps and rivers of the Environmental Life Centre. To be built at the Kruger Park’s Albasini Gate, the centre will comprise specialised conservation education resources incorporated within a detailed, scale-model, relief map of the Kruger National Park – sized so that visitors can walk the entire area in less than a day.This “living map” will replicate the park in miniature: the park borders; the land area with all its varying topography and natural vegetation; sites of historical and archaeological significance; rivers and dams; tourist camps and park entrance gates, and the road network.A major part of the replica-map will be natural bushveld – planted under the direct supervision of SANParks and Kruger scientists, with different vegetation indigenous to Kruger.Nelson Mandela, patron-in-chief of My Acre of AfricaThrough this natural bush, “pathways” of different coloured, natural clay and granite paving bricks will be laid out – each colour being coded to a different feature of the park: border, road network, rivers, camps and entrance gates.Each brick will represent an acre of Africa – specifically, one of Kruger’s 4 692 914 acres – so the pathways will be made up of nearly five million natural clay and granite bricks.By visiting this “Kruger in microcosm”, visitors will be able to formulate a complete sense of one of the world’s greatest national parks.The aim is for the centre to be visited by each South African child at least once during his or her school career. Spread over 110 acres, the centre will educate children about the importance of their natural heritage.The campaign, developed by Johnnic Communications Limited in association with South African National Parks, also aims to raise US$200-million in sustainable financing for the protection of the region’s unique bio-diversity, via an Endowment Fund to support seriously depleted conservation projects.The idea is to capture the hearts and minds of people all over the world and to inspire them to act now to ensure the survival of Africa’s irreplaceable wildlife treasury – a legacy to be held by Africa for the benefit of all the children of today and tomorrow.Each brick represents an acre of wildlife responsibility and is symbolic of southern Africa’s wild areas. There are four types of brick available for sponsorship, ranging in price from US$49 to $500.Each brick will bear a personal inscription chosen by the donor. In this way, every donor’s name will be preserved for posterity in one of the world’s greatest wildlife reserves. Each sponsor will also receive a personal commemorative certificate from Nelson Mandela, the patron-in-chief of My Acre of Africa.Says Mandela: “With bricks we shall build our children’s future, created only from the purest and finest elements, gently and lovingly laid on the deepest and strongest foundations, upon which our children, grown to adulthood, will stand tall and proud as they take their place alongside the wild things with which they share a healthy and beautiful Earth.“If we do not do something to prevent it, Africa’s animals – and the places in which they live – will be lost to our world and her children forever. Before it is too late, we need your help to lay the foundation that will preserve this precious legacy long after we are gone.”SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

March Madness and National Ag Week converge on the court

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest last week was the heart of March Madness and National Ag Week. Those two divergent topics met on a basketball court in Sioux Falls, SD on Friday.The reigning national champions and undefeated 2018 Ashland University Women’s Basketball Team from Ohio played for the Division 2 Championship. Two of the stars are Ohio farm girls.“Two of the starters are farm kids,” said Randy Brown who farms in Wyandot County, is an AU alum and a big basketball fan. “Andi Daugherty is from Fresno, Ohio, and went to Riverview High School. She is a senior and has scored over 2,000 points in her career. Her parents are Bill and Caroline Daugherty. They have a dairy farm. Renee Stimpert is from Ashland County. She is a sophomore and went to Ashland Crestview. Her parents are Fred and Mary Stimpert. They raise hogs and cattle.”Brown said that Andi’s sister Kari also had a great career playing basketball at AU and is presently on the AU Women’s Basketball Coaching Staff.“I am proud to be an Alum at AU and I love to brag on any farm kids that I am aware of that excel in sports,” Brown said.AU has 6,600 students on the campus in Ashland and the Women’s Basketball team had won a jaw-dropping 73 games in a row. The final was on Friday and, unfortunately, it was an upset of historic proportions when No. 6 Central Missouri ended No. 1 Ashland’s winning streak to win the 2018 Division II Women’s Basketball Championship, winning 66-52. Nonetheless, it was fun for many cheering as Ohio farm girls took the national stage.last_img read more

Where the Wild Things Are Comes to the iPhone

first_imgThe classic children’s book Where the Wild Things Are has been turned into a movie due in theaters next week. The promotional iPhone app is something that your kids may enjoy quite a lot. (iTunes link)The app lets you listen to the movie’s sound track, see photos, watch trailers and best of all – interact with an on-screen image of the monster Carol. Carol can be tickled, hit, he’ll throw things at you, you can put him to sleep at night and he’ll eat photos of the contacts on your phone.It’s a fun, free little app and is probably going to be very effective in convincing the kids that try it that the movie is a must-see. Parents familiar with the book probably didn’t need any convincing.Either way, there’s something I think all of us can enjoy about listening to Karen O sing in the background while watching a big cuddly monster eat photos of people we know from our phone.
