Subratie eyes derby success

first_imgVeteran racehorse trainer Gary Subratie believes that he has a glorious opportunity to win his first Jamaica Derby this year.Subratie, who has been a trainer for over 20 years at Caymanas Park, will be banking on his three-year-old colt, WOW WOW, to give him his first derby success. WOW WOW, who is owned by Michael Bernard, has won nine out of 10 career races to date. Subratie, who won the Trinidad and Tobago Derby in 2013 with BIG MAN IN TOWN, told The Gleaner that he is very confident that his charge would be victorious in this year’s Jamaica Derby, which has been shifted to October due to the coronavirus pandemic. “I think that I can most definitely win this Derby because that horse is a really special horse, and I don’t think we have seen the best of him yet,” said Subratie. “My horse is only going to improve because I have never really trained him for a particular race, and I am not going to change my programme to suit anybody but my horse. Once my horse tells me what he wants, then I will give it to him,” he said. The veteran trainer, who has finished third in the Trainers’ Championships over eight seasons, underlined that WOW WOW has had a number of setbacks to his preparations for the Classics this year but noted that he has now fully recovered and is ready to compete. “He was really sick during February when we had a virus outbreak at the track, but he has come along nicely,” said Subratie. “He also got a little colic a couple of weeks ago, but he is coming on nicely again. He has been striding out nicely, and I am really pleased with the work.” LEADING CANDIDATES ENGLAND ROSE, who handed WOW WOW his first career defeat, along with DOUBLE CROWN and MAHOGANY, are the leading candidates to win this year’s derby. Subratie underlined that he respects his challengers but stated that his horse would be ready for the Classic races once he remains sound. “He might be running a couple weeks from now, and we will see what he does in that race and draw our line from there,” Subratie said. “The derby is way in October, and we have a long way between now and October. The Guinness is next month, and, hopefully, we will be there for the Guinness and everything goes right,” Subratie said. NIPSTER, who is also trained by Subratie, is also expected to line up in this year’s derby. robert.bailey@gleanerjm.comlast_img read more

INTERVIEW: Half-Term Report – Kirk on City Women’s Spring Series So Far

first_img“I think we are where I expected us to be,” said the Vixens Manager.“We need to continue to improve on certain areas of our game, but that was always going to be the case. Every game I can see improvements and I’m certain that will continue for the remainder of the Spring Series, it is an exciting time.”Coming into the Spring Series, Kirk says the squad were putting emphasis on performance purely.“The beauty of this competition is that there is no relegation, so that enables us to go and play freely and see how we get on,” he added.“Every game I am learning things about my players, some performances have really pleased me and others have given me an idea of where we need to improve.”The Vixens sit seventh in the table, with one win and three losses.“We remained level headed after our win at Yeovil and we haven’t been too disappointed with our losses,” said Kirk“No disrespect, but we have taken into account the opposition and we knew there would be tougher games to come like we saw against Manchester City Women.”Birmingham are up next for the Vixens and Kirk says the squad are preparing well for the trip to the Midlands.“We had some time off and the squad have come in re-focused and feeling fresh.“We know the threats that Birmingham will bring, they are a physical side who move the ball well and we have to be ready to go from the first whistle.”Tickets for Bristol City Women’s remaining Spring Series games are available via https://tickets.bristol-sport.co.uk/en-gb/categories/bristolcitywomenhomeFollow @BristolCityWFC on twitter to keep up-to-date on all the Bristol City Women action and news.last_img read more

What Benardrick McKinney told MSU’s LBs about leadership

first_imgSTARKVILLE Benardrick McKinney carried a few titles during his time at Mississippi State.He was the Bulldogs’ leading tackler the last two years. He tallied the most “Juice Points” under former defensive coordinator Geoff Collins. Fox Sports referred to the linebacker as one of the nation’s freakiest athletes.Whatever his title, his teammates looked at him for leadership.The Tunica native accepted an invitation to attend the NFL Draft that starts on April 30 in Chicago. There’s a possibility he could hear his name called in the first round. McKinney visited the Saints this week and has another visit scheduled with the Dolphins on Friday.Before McKinney begins his NFL career, he left Beniquez Brown with some advice on how to fill his role, not through production, but by leadership.“He said, really no days off. Just come in and you work hard. If players see you, they’re going to go as you go,” Brown said. “Every day I try to bring my A-game to practice. I also try to tell the other linebackers, the defense goes as we go.”Brown finished second on the team behind McKinney with 62 tackles. As a junior, he’ll likely move into McKinney’s role on and off the field.Brown impressed the coaching staff last year with his football IQ. His teammates raved about Brown’s ability to diagnose a play before it happened.If Brown pieces it all together this year, he could follow McKinney’s path to the NFL.“We (talk about) everything. The process that he’s going through and the things that I can do to hopefully go through the process sooner or later and be the player he was,” Brown said. “So really just staying in contact with him and asking him questions and see how he became the player he was here.”Contact Michael Bonner at mbonner@gannett.com.

Baseball: Airline, Haughton have successful seasons

first_imgThe Airline Vikings and Haughton Bucs both lost in the first round of the Class 5A playoffs last week, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that both had very successful seasons.The District 1-5A champ Vikings fell to district rival Byrd 8-6, and Haughton lost to Live Oak 10-3.Airline finished 24-11 overall and 13-2 in District 1-5A. They won the district title by three games over Captain Shreve. It was Airline’s second straight title, but last year they had to share it with Shreve.“It was a great year; it really was,” Airline coach Toby Todd said. “Those kids won 24 games. We played a very tough schedule if you look at the number of teams we played that were very high up in the power rankings and are still in the playoffs. Overall, it was a big success of a season.”The Byrd game was the final one for six senior starters — starting pitcher Andrew Lowe and reliever Andrew Maxey, first baseman Jacob James, second baseman Ryan Phillips, shortstop Tanner Daniel and designated hitter Peyton Coker.Haughton finished 19-13 and tied for third with Byrd at 9-6.The Live Oak game was the final one for four Haughton seniors — utility player Trey Morris, shortstop Sam Wallace, catcher Seth Ryan and right fielder Seth Bradshaw.Haughton had six more wins overall than in 2014 and four more in 1-5A.“I was real pleased,” Haughton coach Glenn Maynor said. “Compared to last year I think we took a step forward. This is our fourth year in 5A and it’s a world of difference.“I thought our seniors did an awesome job of being leaders. I told them that in several years we can look back and say this was the year we turned it around.”Russell Hedges, rhedges@bossierpress.comTop Expat InsuranceExpat Living in Hong Kong without Health Insurance?Top Expat Insurance|SponsoredSponsoredUndoTheTopFiveVPNThe Secret Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know To Unblock RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPN|SponsoredSponsoredUndoCelebsland.com9 Celebrity Before-And-After Plastic Surgery DisastersCelebsland.com|SponsoredSponsoredUndoPerfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?Perfect-Dating.com|SponsoredSponsoredUndoTheTopFiveVPNThe Trick Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know To Unlock RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPN|SponsoredSponsoredUndoAspireAbove.comRemember Abby from NCIS?
