I’m confident that they will take what they’ve learned and continue to improve during the upcoming track season. We are all very proud of Allie and Michaela for how they competed during this race, this season, and during their careers up to this point at ACU.

AWESOME AGAIN STAKES QUOTES-SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2019

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESABEL CEDILLO, MONGOLIAN GROOM, WINNER: “I would like to thank the trainers and owners. I had a lot of help and thank you Enebish Ganbat, for trusting me. He told me don’t change anything, just do what you do with him . . . just stay close, and I saw McKinzie didn’t go so I took the lead.”MIKE SMITH, McKINZIE, SECOND: “I thought I could go with the two outside horses, but they seemed like they were determined to get it. So I let them go figuring they’d entertain each other and we’d do what we do. That horse ran a huge race today. We lost the battle, but this ain’t the war. Hopefully we’ll come back and be ready.”TRAINER QUOTESENEBISH GANBAT, MONGOLIAN GROOM, WINNER: “Honestly, I didn’t expect he was going to win because he was running against two of the best horses on the dirt and the best two trainers, Baffert and Sadler. I told everyone I’m happy if he comes in third. I bet $500 on show.“I guess last time (Pacific Classic on Aug. 17) he got tired because it was very hot, he was sweaty and we did a hard jog. Today we did a light jog; he was fresher today.“I told the jockey to do what he had to and he did OK, the horse won at 25-1. That’s horse racing. I expected him to hold off McKinzie through the stretch (through interpreter Josie Goldberg). My horse was not stopping. He continued to go.”“I didn’t think he’d win. He was up against the two best horses in America in McKinzie and Higher Power. I thought I’d be happy if the horse finished third. I didn’t think my horse would win.”Goldberg: “He (Ganbat) went to a university in Russia, and the Russian mentality is, ‘You fight to the end,’ and that’s what the horse did. He wasn’t going to stop until he won. He didn’t tell Abel anything, except, ‘You know your job.’”Asked about the Breeders’ Cup Classic, Ganbat said even though this was a “Win and You’re In” race, the horse has not been nominated to the Breeders’ Cup. Breeders’ Cup rules state: “The winning horse in a Challenge Race shall receive automatic selection into the Championship race that corresponds with the division of the Challenge Race won, provided the horse is Breeders’ Cup nominated before the Championships pre-entry deadline.”Ganbat is a native of Mongolia who began training there in 1999. He began training in the United States in 2010.NOTES: The winning owner is Mongolian Stables.last_img read more

Bone marrow transplant recipients reunite

first_imgCampos, who was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in 2004 and received a bone-marrow transplant a year later, is now fully recovered and once again attending school. This was the 31st anniversary of City of Hope’s ever-jubilant Bone Marrow Transplant Reunion, where smiling patients of all ages proudly wore big buttons marking their years since treatment. Among the special guests at this year’s picnic were 17-year-old Julian Yarbrough, City of Hope’s first double umbilical cord blood transplant recipient, and Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, D-Pasadena, who authored a bill that would create a statewide cord blood collection program. “Umbilical cord blood, which 90 percent of the time gets thrown in the trash, cures 70 diseases,” Portantino said. Portantino said he was moved to create a cord blood bank after his own attempt to donate cord blood from his daughter’s birth proved difficult. • Photo Gallery: Transplant gives hope DUARTE – Thousands of former City of Hope patients, family members and friends gathered Friday to celebrate their triumph over life-threatening cancers and fete the bone-marrow donors who made their health possible. “We do this year after year, and it never gets old – I always get goosebumps,” said Dr. Stephen Forman, head of the hospital’s bone-marrow transplant program, before two transplant recipients met their donors for the first time at the event. One of the recipients, 10-year-old Cindy Campos of Rancho Cucamonga had tears rolling down her cheeks as her donor, cheery-looking Canadian airline pilot Doug Baxter, appeared and wrapped her in a hug. “I had to do all the work,” he said. “I had to get the kit … I had to be in the delivery room to collect the package, put it on ice and ship it.” Yarbrough received his cord blood transplants after chemotherapy failed to thwart his leukemia and no matches were found for him within his family or the bone-marrow registry. “It’s hard to find a donor for somebody with a multi-ethnic background, so it’s amazing we found it,” said Ellen Bolotin, one of his physicians. Cord blood, like bone marrow, contains stem cells that can restore the marrow and immune system of patients who have had theirs destroyed by cancer-fighting chemotherapy. About 30 percent of patients who need bone-marrow transplants find a match within their families. The other 70 percent face the much harder task of finding a match from an unrelated donor. There is virtually no risk to donating stem cells, which is either done under anesthesia by extracting marrow from the hip bone, or by extracting them from the blood after a course of drug therapy. At City of Hope on Friday, the great impact that the donations could have was felt throughout the hospital grounds as cancer survivors walked about, surrounded by smiling family and friends. “Everything feels good,” said Eddie Garcia, a 34-year-old Azusa resident who attended with his fiancee Vaniece Ferraro. “I feel great.” elise.kleeman@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4451160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

GARDA SAYS HE HAD TO MOVE AFTER MAN THREATENED TO KILL HIS FAMILY

first_imgA Garda has claimed he was forced to move out of Drumkeen after he received death threats from a local man.Letterkenny Court.Garda Conor Cunningham claimed he received the threats from Charlie McGee of Lettermore, Drumkeen following a late night incident. McGee, 43, appeared before Letterkenny District Court charged with making threats to kill or cause harm.The court heard how Garda Cunningham and another Garda approached McGee at 3am on the morning of August 31st last to inform him that his brother had been arrested.But McGee answered what business that was of Garda Cunningham.He then launched into a tirade of abuse and threats against Garda Cunningham.He told him “That’s none of your f***** business and if you follow me to my property, I will burn you and your family out of that house and I will kill you.”Garda Cunningham said he was living in the area at the time and that his wife was pregnant.He said he was very concerned by the threats and took them seriously.He added that he had lived in the area for a year and had been looking for a house in the area to live in but had decided against it after the threats.Solicitor for McGee, Michael Shiel, asked Garda Cunningham if he had a torch with him on the night in question and how he knew it was McGee who made the threats.“Thankfully I am blessed with good eyesight and I was only a few feet from him. I also know him from before and I have had conversations with him,” said Garda Cunningham.Mr McGee gave evidence and denied that he made any threats against Garda Cunningham.However, Judge Paul Kelly said he was satisfied the threats had been made and found McGee guilty.He adjourned the case and asked for probation and community service reports but told solicitor Shiel that he was not making any promises to his client.GARDA SAYS HE HAD TO MOVE AFTER MAN THREATENED TO KILL HIS FAMILY was last modified: June 24th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Charlie McGeecourtDrumkeenGarda CunninghamLettermorelast_img read more

EDUCATION MINISTER BRANDED A ‘DISGRACE’ OVER FUNDING THREAT TO LOW INCOME DONEGAL FAMILIES

first_imgEDUCATION Minister Ruairi Quinn has been urged to withdraw a threat to cut funding to the less well off in Donegal.The call has been made by the chairman of Finn Valley College and local councillor Patrick McGowan.It followed a statemenT from Education Minister Quinn who said it was ‘reasonable’ for County Councils to use the threat of withholding education grants as leverage over families unable or unwilling to pay the €100 Household Charge. “This is a disgrace from a Minister who is suppose to champion education especially for the less well off ,” fumed Cllr McGowan.“Education is the way all political parties point to Ireland in getting out of our present difficulties and high unemployment.“The Minister has taken a seal of office from the President of Ireland and he has put party policies before his duty as Minister.“I say to the Minister: what next? Will residents be refused access to medical care unless they have paid this €100 household charge? “The late Sean Lemass TD, who has been contributed with advancing Education in Ireland and successive Ministers for Education, would surely have been dismayed at the attitude of Minister Quinn.”Cllr McGowan that Fianna Fail Education spokesman Charlie Mc Conalogue was right when he said that grants play an important role in access to third level education for many thousands of less well-off families across the country.“The funding for grants and an individual’s entitlement to apply for a grant has absolutely nothing to do with the Household Charge or indeed the local authorities.“I am calling on the Minister to with withdraw this unprecedented attack on families in Donegal and elsewhere,” added Cllr McGowan.
