JN backs Racers’ Silent Auction to fund Grand Prix

first_img THREE-WEEK CAMP The auction pot was also sweetened with the opportunity to participate in a three-week Racers Summer camp slated for July 4-22 for athletes aged seven to 19 for $111,000. The camp package also includes accommodation and meals. Other items auctioned included a three-night stay at the Half Moon hotel for a minimum $75,000 bid, while vacationing at Secrets Resort and Spa went for the same price. Racers received a financial boost from Sunday’s auction to the tune of over $800,000, funds raised after admitting their club failed to acquire funds from the Government-run Sports Development Foundation (SDF). That, however, led them to try raising funds from the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica. Meanwhile, Racers boss Glen Mills lauded a JN video presentation dubbed Racers Track Club: The Vision, aired at Sunday’s reception. “This video highlights the aims and direction of our organisation, and we want our benefactors to appreciate how we see ourselves and the future of track and field in Jamaica,” Mills underlined. Racers Track Club showcased their universal sprinting excellence via an innovative and first-of-its-kind Mini-Museum and Silent Auction of running spikes, Puma T-shirts and track suits autographed by their leading stars during the colourful Jamaica National-organised event on Sunday night. Over 25 Olympic and World Championship medals were displayed. University of the West Indies-based Racers Track Club displayed authentic athletic memorabilia and autographed apparel and batons from the club’s local, regional and international track and field exploits at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston. Jamaica National’s general manager, Earl Jarrett, lauded Glen Mills’ Racers camp for contributing to Jamaica’s image as the ‘sprint capital of the world’. “Our sponsorship of the Grand Prix and hosting of the reception on May 1 is part of our continuing focus to support young athletes and to honour their achievements as we anticipate that they will be among future Jamaican athletes who will maintain the trailblazing standard set by others, some of whom will retire after the 2016 Olympics in Brazil,” Jarrett outlined. Sunday’s reception helped to raise funds and to promote the Racers Grand Prix, which is expected to host around 100 top athletes from some 10 countries, inside the National Stadium on June 11. Mega sprint star, Usain Bolt, who holds the double sprint world records and a total of six Olympic gold medals, saw two pairs of his illustrious Puma spikes fetch a whopping $130,000 and $150,000, respectively. The baton he and his Jamaica team carried while reigning supreme at last year’s IAAF World Championships went for $95,000. Warren Weir, a World and Olympic 200-metre medallist and an adidas-sponsored athlete, saw his spikes and body suit fetch minimum $60,000 and $50,000 each, while the second-fastest man of all time, Yohan Blake, also an adidas-sponsored athlete, had his spikes priced at a minimum of $50,000. Commonwealth Games 2014 gold medallist, Kemar Bailey-Cole, saw his framed photograph priced at $50,000 and his spikes for $55,000, alongside Olympian Michael Frater.last_img read more

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

WI arrive in Australia for tough assignment

first_img RICHARDSON’S FINAL BRISBANE, Australia (CMC): West Indies made a quiet arrival in the picturesque east coast city yesterday to begin preparation for their three-Test series against Australia staring next month. The squad, led by captain Jason Holder, arrived via New York and Los Angeles following two days of travel from the Caribbean. West Indies will train their attention first on a five-day camp at the Allan Border Field before taking on a young Cricket Australia XI in a four-day game starting Wednesday at the same venue. A significant presence in the squad is that of head coach Phil Simmons, who missed the recent Test and limited-overs tour of Sri Lanka through suspension. He was pulled from that tour by the West Indies Cricket Board after he bizarrely claimed in a media conference that the selection of the one-day squad had been influenced by “outside interference”. Simmons, appointed following the ICC World Cup earlier this year, subsequently apologised after appearing before the WICB’s human resources committee, and was promptly reinstated. The Trinidadian will be leading West Indies for the first time on an overseas tour after presiding over the home tours against England and Australia. While Simmons has returned, the series will mark the final one for Sir Richie Richardson in his five-year stint as team manager. The former West Indies captain and batting star is set to take up duties as an ICC match referee following the series. For the Caribbean side, the highlight of the series will be the Boxing Day second Test in Melbourne, as the tourists have not had the courtesy of being part of this historic fixture in 15 years. Several hundred West Indians, who reside in Australia, are expected to mark the Boxing Day Test with a mini-carnival. West Indies will play the opening Test in Hobart starting December 10 and the third Test in Sydney, starting in the New Year, and are expected to face a tough assignment against the powerful Aussies. Significantly, they have not won a Test Down Under in 18 years and have also not beaten Australia in a Test for 12 years. SQUAD: Jason Holder (captain), Kraigg Brathwaite (vice-captain), Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Carlos Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Rajindra Chandrika, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope, Denesh Ramdin, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor, Jomel Warrican.last_img read more
