Get off the mark with Money Magnet

first_img FIRST SUPER-6 FANCIES Tomorrow’s O & S Tack Room-sponsored raceday at Caymanas Park offers 11 races, including a Pick-9 carryover of $2.8 million from race three to 11. Both Pick-6s start anew with the guaranteed minimum of $750,000, the first embracing race one to six, the late Super-6 from race six to 11. We look at the first Super-6 which commences with a two-year-old maiden special for the Rhoel Rhoden Memorial Trophy over 1100 metres to be contested by six native bred juveniles. Included in the line up are two first time runners in MONEY MAGNET to be ridden by hot apprentice Bebeto Harvey for trainer Richard Azan and the Ian Parsad-trained FOURTHOUSAND with Robert Halledeen aboard. MONEY MAGNET is definitely the more advanced of the two, having impressed at exercise alongside RALLY BABY five furlongs in 1:01.3 and finishing heads on with stable-companion BABY P in a brisk 1:00.3 over five furlongs on August 5. As a result of that impressive workout, the chestnut filly by Nuclear Wayne out of Jazzy Jet was fancied to make a winning debut in the inaugural running of the Front Runner Dash over 1000 metres on August 13, but that meet was abandoned due to industrial action at the race track. Reporting just as sharp tomorrow, MONEY MAGNET, who is bred for speed should get off the mark right away. (1) MONEY MAGNET (2) MY FAVORITE DANCER (3) WINESHA/ FIFTYONESTORM (4) GOLD MEMBER/ RAISING THE BAR (5) LUCKY NINE/ GOLDEN GLORY (6) JASON’S GOLD/KANALOA Next on the programme is a restricted allowance race over 1500 metres for five-year-olds and up (non winners of two) in which nine have been declared. All have a history of inconsistency, but every now and then horses like MIRACLE TRAIN, SMART TRAIN, ALL FOR THE GLORY and MY FAVORITE DANCER surface with a good run and MY FAVORITE DANCER, in particular, fits the bill with back to form Ameth Robles aboard. Down in class BORDER LINE is easily the most accomplished of the nine starters in the third race for $250,000 – $250,000 claimers over he straight but he is proving difficult to train of late and could fall victim to the very fit course specialist WINESHA (Ruja Lahoe up), who has won two of her last three races and was just beaten by EL CLIENTE in her last race. Now best drawn on the outside at post position nine, WINESHA is preferred to another straight specialist FITYONESTORM, who finished behind her in a recent race. They all have another course specialist, GOLD MEMBER under in-form apprentice Dane Dawkins, to beat in he fourth race over the course, having finished second to RAS EMANUEL in a fast-run straight five race (59.3) some weeks ago in non-winners of three. Trained by Gresford Smith for New Blue, the 4-y-o gelding underlined his prowess over the straight by winning back to back races over same late last year and on the strength of his close second to WELL BLESSED over the distance in June makes him a nap selection. The last two races in the first Super-6 shoud be won by LUCKY NINE with apprentice Hakeen Pottinger, and JASON’S GOLD with young Dawkins riding for in-form trainer Anthony ‘Baba’ Nunes.

World champion ends shooting clinic today

first_imgNineteen-time Sporting clays world champion Ben Husthwaite will be looking to successfully wrap up a special tutorship assignment with local shooters at the Jamaica Skeet Club in Portmore, St Catherine, today.The shooting great, who was brought here by the Jamaica Skeet Club, has been in Jamaica since last Tuesday giving lessons on how to improve their shooting skills and mental strength.The sessions, which are taking place in the middle of the local shooting season, are aimed at helping to prepare local professional shooters as well as amateurs to better compete locally. It will no doubt help them grow in confidence and technique as they represent Jamaica internationally.According to Husthwaite, the shooters will be taught, among other things, “how the gun’s gonna move.”We’re gonna control every aspect of the gun movement. We’re gonna actually start to make precise, planned movement; it’s almost like following a GPS in a car,” he shared.Husthwaite continued; “You follow signals, we’re gonna do the same thing, we’re gonna have a plan before they call for the clay, and we’re gonna insert the barrel into a certain place around that clay before we move into what is called lead way.”Husthwaite stressed: “You shoot ahead of what you are shooting at.”One of his enthused students, nine-time national champion Ian Banks, said that after his lesson, he will be targeting his 10th championship this year.WORLD CLASSMeanwhile, Husthwaite had high praises for the Jamaica Skeet Club’s programme, noting some of the junior shooters are world, class in their current age category.Husthwaite has been here some 16 times. He has the word ‘Jamaican’ tattooed on his arm, and the Jamaica Skeet Club’s logo on his back.The shooters have been receiving individual instruction in groups no bigger than three, with the sessions fully booked before Husthwaite arrived.Jamaica Skeet Club President Khaleel Azan said the club decided to bring back Husthwaite, who was last here in late 2015, to help fine-tune the skills of the local shooters.”Husthwaite is one of the best instructors and shooters in the world,” Azan was quick to point out.last_img read more
