Buzz Nightmare slams rivals

first_img DID THE BASICS Spence said he simply did the basics … broke him sharply, rated him on the lead and his class did the rest. “I won with him on his debut over 1100 metres in February and he ran an amazing time of 1:05.3,” recalls Spence. “From then, I knew he had a touch of class, and this manifested itself today … He’s better than these horses and with further scope for improvement, I expect him to go far in racing,” added Spence, who is popularly called ‘Dolly Baby’. With the top three riders vying for the championship having a lean day, Robert Halledeen seized the opportunity to inch ahead in the title race after the Wayne DaCosta-trained MISS JUANITA (9-2) was awarded the eighth race for overnight horses on the disqualification of 9-1 chance BOLD AVIATOR, who won in a blanket finish with Aaron Chatrie aboard. Halledeen now leads with 51 wins, one ahead of Ellis and two ahead of Omar Walker, both of whom failed to ride a winner. Apprentice Renardo McNaughton stole the spotlight with two winners – MARKOFAPRINCE (9-5) and the 30-1 outsider, COOL U BOOTS, in the closing race. The progressive 3-y-o colt BUZZ NIGHTMARE completed a hat-trick of wins at Caymanas Park yesterday, making virtually all to win the third running of the O & S Tack Room Trophy restricted stakes over 1300 metres in fine style. Installed a 4-5 favourite with veteran jockey Ian Spence riding for 14-time champion trainer Philip Feanny, BUZZ NIGHTMARE broke smartly from the number-nine post position, but was soon joined on the inside by 2-1 second favourite, ROAD WI SEH, in the 10-horse field. But with Spence having a lot in hand, BUZZ was merely toying with ROAD WI SEH and opened up, leaving the half mile to turn for home two lengths clear of the ever-present ROYAL ASSAULT under title-chasing jockey Shane Ellis. Thereafter, BUZZ NIGHTMARE only had to be kept up to his work under the left hand stick from his 49-year-old jockey, beating ROYAL ASSAULT and the late-closing WINGS OF HOPE (24-1). Owned by 2 Penyu and bred by HAM Stables Limited, BUZZ NIGHTMARE was notching his fourth win from only five career starts and achieved the victory in yet another fast time – 1:19.2 behind splits of 23.1, 46.3 and 1:11.4 for the first 1200 metres.last_img read more

Committee approves Rep Miller bill to expand dual enrollment to border school
Committee approves Rep Miller bill to expand dual enrollment to border school

first_img28Sep Committee approves Rep. Miller bill to expand dual enrollment to border school districts Categories: Miller News,News The House Education Reform Committee approved legislation by state Rep. Aaron Miller, expanding post-secondary education and dual enrollment options for high school students.“We should allow our students the best education options to help them build their own future, especially in consideration of post-high school programs,” said Miller, of Sturgis. “While Michigan has so many dual enrollment opportunities, there are still pockets of our state where the closest and most reasonable dual programs are still quite a distance away when you consider a high school schedule. We have to do what’s best for all of our state’s students, so I’m glad that committee agreed with this legislation.”The legislation amends current law under the Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act with the specific stipulation that the out-of-state facility must be within 20 miles of the shared border for students enrolled in a public, charter or private school district.Today’s vote comes two weeks after Brent Holcomb, superintendent of the Lewis Cass Intermediate School District in Cass County, and Stephen McNew, superintendent of the Monroe County Intermediate School District, joined Miller before the committee.“We have found that several school districts in neighboring states send their students into Michigan for post-secondary education programs, which just reinforces this is good policy,” said Miller, of Sturgis. “This was always about our commitment to education going beyond our physical borders for the good of the state’s future.”HB 4735 advances to the House floor for its consideration.#####last_img read more
