FEI Barefoot Retreats Burnham Market International Wrap-Up

first_imgCCI4* short formatOn Sunday morning, before the final horse inspection for long format competitors, it was announced that the short format class had been split back into two classes, the 8/9 year-old-championship and the ‘normal’ CCI4*S. This put Oliver Townend’s bid to win his 13th consecutive 4*S at Burnham Market very much back on track; he started today’s cross country in the lead on last year’s winner, Cillnabradden Evo – before the class split the pair was in second place behind Izzy Taylor.Cillnabradden Evo cruised round the course, Oliver undoubtedly conscious that he had time in hand with the class split again. They literally cantered over the finish line, adding two time penalties to their dressage score, good enough to stay at the top of the leaderboard and continue Oliver’s phenomenal run at the venue.Cillnabradden Evo will now be retired. “He owes us nothing and has punched above his weight for years,” said Oliver. “It’s great to end his career with another good win.”Australia’s Kevin McNab took the runner up spot riding Scuderia 1918 Don Quidam with Sarah Bullimore completing the podium places on Reve du Rouet and China’s Alex Hua Tian 0.1 of a penalty behind in fourth on Don Geniro.8/9 year-old championshipDisappointingly for Izzy Taylor, as she said could happen yesterday, Hartacker did make a green [inexperienced] mistake on today’s cross country course to pick up 20 penalties, dropping the pair down the order.This allowed Yasmin Ingham to move up to the top spot aboard Banzai du Loir. They finished three points ahead of runners up Ros Canter on Lordships Graffalo while Kitty King and Cristal Fontaine, 2018’s six-year-old world champion, completed the podium lineup.“I couldn’t be happier with all my horses this week,” said Yasmin, “but riding Banzai du Loir literally gives me goosebumps. Even better, Mum was here and it’s the first time I have seen her since Lincolnshire Horse Trials [in March] because she’s been in lockdown on the Isle of Man.”Yasmin’s 22.3 finish is in the top three finishes seen at Burnham Market since 2005. Only Oliver Townend’s two wins last year sit ahead of her – Cillnabradden Evo, who scored 21.3 and Ballaghmor Class, on 22.2.CCI4* long formatIzzy Taylor’s weekend ended on a high. Monkeying Around led from pillar to post to claim Britain’s only long format four star this year. A 23.2 finish is Izzy’s lowest ever at CCI4*-L and brought about her fifth win at this level since she first won a CCI4*-L in 2014. Only four riders in the world have had more wins at the level since 2010.“He jumped beautifully today and felt really confident. I know he’s a good jumper but any horse can have a fence down. He’s a huge character, very cheeky but actually likes being good and my hopes for him paid off this weekend.”Clear showjumping rounds were key today, and a rail down for any combination proved costly. Italy’s Vittoria Panizzon finished less than a fence down behind Izzy on Chequers Play The Game, with Sarah Bullimore and Corouet third, just 0.3 of a penalty behind Vittoria.Full results can be found at https://www.eventingscores.co.uk Tags: Izzy Taylor, Oliver Townend, Burnham Market International, Mike Winter, El Mundo, We’ll send you our regular newsletter and include you in our monthly giveaways.

Judge considers intoxication experts in Vanderbilt rape case

first_imgA judge is expected to rule by the end of the week whether to allow a forensic psychologist to testify about intoxication in the defense of Cory Batey, one of four former Vanderbilt University football players accused of rape.Criminal Court Judge Monte Watkins denied other requests for a change of trial venue and sequestered jury during a hearing Monday.State fights to block access to Vanderbilt rape recordsAfter the hearing, attorney Worrick Robinson told a gaggle of reporters that evidence of intoxication will be critical, and probably in more than just Batey’s case.“I think it goes to the extent of, also, that because of alcohol there was more than just Mr. Batey that had made decisions that night that they probably would not normally make,” Robinson said.The Tennessean asked Robinson to whom he was referring.“I think that will come out in the evidence,” Robinson said. “I don’t think it’s a big secret that all the parties in that room were under the influence of alcohol to some extent. This case is a lot about alcohol consumption. That’s why I think having the expert testify about the effects of alcohol is critical, absolutely critical.”Police say former football player Brandon Vandenburg and a 21-year-old woman were drinking heavily the night of the alleged rape. In the dorm room, police say, Vandenburg, Batey and two others raped and sexually abused the woman while she was unconscious.Assistant District Attorney Roger Moore argued that intoxication is not a legally valid defense in many of the charges against Batey. He said the doctor’s testimony may be relevant later in the case, but not in front of a jury that can use common sense to determine the effects of intoxication.Watkins on Monday said he would decide whether to allow the evidence by the end of the week. He also denied requests to change the trial venue, pull a jury from another county and sequester the jurors.Study may change fight against campus sexual assaultsAlbert Perez Jr., an attorney for Vandenburg, brought a copy of The Tennessean’s Sunday edition — featuring a story about college sexual assault — to court to show intense media coverage he said tainted the jury pool.Watkins said he believed a fair jury could be found, and there was not enough time or money to coordinate those requests.The case has been pending for 18 months, and Vandenburg and Batey are set for trial Jan. 12. The joint trial was set to begin Nov. 3 but was delayed after Robinson suffered a shoulder injury while trimming yard foliage.In court Monday, his left arm was cradled in a sling under his suit jacket.Reach Stacey Barchenger at 615-726-8968 or on Twitter @sbarchenger.last_img read more

Robertson: Liverpool experience can help me help Scotland

first_img“From the first minute I thought he did that, you could see by the performance he put in.”Robertson was replaced on the hour mark by debutant Barry Douglas after aggravating an injury he’d previously sustained against Watford.The 24-year-old praised his replacements display, insisting it reflected the strength in depth McLeish now has at his disposal.He said: “You see the subs that came on all did well.“Jason Cummings only got one or two minutes, which he’s probably frustrated with, but what a player he is, he’s got a big future.“He’s just got to be patient and his time will come, I’ve no doubt about that.“Barry Douglas, Kenny McLean, Callum Paterson all came on and did well.“When you look at the bench, we’ve got a lot of depth so the manager has problems but there the right problems to have.” He said: “I feel as if I am progressing day-by-day at Liverpool working under a fantastic manager and playing with unbelievable players, that can only help my game.“I am one of the more experienced boys here and I can help these lads, so can we all.“Charlie (Mulgrew), Greegsy (Allan McGregor), we can pass on our experience and make sure we are in the best possible shape to qualify for the Euros.”He added: “The likes of Jack Hendry on his debut, you can talk him through it and help him go out and enjoy it. Scotland defender Andrew Robertson has said he’s happy to help Alex McLeish’s new recruits by passing on his experiences he gained from playing for Liverpool.Robertson has flourished since moving to Anfield in the summer from Championship outfit Hull.The former Queens Park and Dundee United left-back believes he’s picked up tips from enigmatic boss Jurgen Klopp that have seen his game go from strength-to-strength.And Robertson said he’s more than willing to share those experiences with Scotland new boys such as Jack Hendry and Scott McKenna.last_img read more

Prime Minister Christie wants Bahamian culture institutionalized

first_img Bahamas to take 15-member delegation to CARICOM meeting set in Mo’Bay, Jamaica UN SG is Special Guest at Opening Ceremony for CARICOM Heads Meeting Wednesday Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp CARICOM Inter-Sessional Meeting discussions conclude on high note Related Items:bahamas junkanoo carnival, CARICOM, charles carter, cuba, Perry G. Christie Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, 18 Dec 2014 – “We have to do better and we have to do more” were the words of Prime Minister Christie as he talked cultural development during his tribute to cultural icon Charles Carter on Friday evening at a park renaming ceremony in Mr. Carter’s honour.The Prime Minister was making a broader point about the way The Bahamas has traditionally treated its cultural ambassadors, singling out renowned cultural luminaries in the names of Ronnie Butler and his former constituent, Joseph Spence. He also sounded off on the need to institutionalize both the recognition of local artists and to officially and formally facilitate the development of art and culture in The Bahamas.The Prime Minister went on to reiterated his government’s commitment to the development of the arts as was articulated in Cuba during his plenary session address to CARICOM member states on Monday, 8th December in Havana at the 5th CARICOM-Cuba Summit.“Last week in Cuba I articulated a commitment to the arts – to culture; I did in the presence of all of the leaders of the region there present. And I indicated to them that as of January (2015) I will become the chair and effective political leader of the CARICOM group of countries and in February we will be meeting here (in Nassau, Bahamas) and that I’m going to be able to stress and emphasize as I did in Cuba the great significance and importance of coming to understand the economic impact of culture (and) of sports.”He went further. In light of the proven economic impact of culture as evidenced in other CARICOM countries, the Prime Minister thought it fitting for The Bahamas government to institutionalize culture by making further significant investments in the arts at the collegiate level to allow young Bahamians greater access to facilities, formal education and professional training to assist them in realizing their full potential. This would be an adjunct to the government’s policy of institutionalizing the care, education and training of children and adults with special needs such as autism.“I told the President of Cuba then we were going to build our own center for special children in The Bahamas and I thought to myself we ought to also be able to say we are going to commit to building our own school for the arts, incorporated to the College of The Bahamas for people who will be interested in the theater – be interested in singing and dancing and being able to find and express themselves and their talent through some cultural involvement.”The Prime Minister declared 2014 as the year of culture and the government recognized forty Bahamians as “Culture Warriors” in a ceremony earlier this year. In a major policy decision, the government has created Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival that will debut in May 2015. This cultural event promises to strengthen the economic impact of culture while adding a more comprehensive cultural component to the current tourism product offerings thereby enhancing the visitor experience.

Provo Airport handling hundreds of tourists on Saturdays – officials say it

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you Related Items:flight, houston, Michel Nuetelings, Portia smith, provo international airport, ralph higgs Road Show delegation starts in the Western USA Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 05 Jun 2015 – Houston’s inaugural flight landed on Saturday at the Provo International, but stealing the thunder of that new commute was the hundreds of visitors arriving almost simultaneously for their TCI vacations. As many as nine airliners were on the ground Saturday and it seemed the International Arrivals area was going to burst at its seams with so many visitors getting in to Providenciales at one time. Saturday is the busiest day for the country’s gateway – Providenciales International Airport – and as hundreds filed in to be processed by Immigration, collect their bags at the one baggage carousel and file through Customs – it seemed an awful mess, but Lavern Reynolds, Terminal and Marketing Manager with the TCI Airports Authority assured things were under control. “I don’t think it is overwhelming. I think it is one of those things whereby we have to put all of our ducks in a row; we have other partners that we are working along with which is Customs, as well as Immigration and the airlines and the other entities within the airport itself. I think it’s wonderful for us to be able to keep busy and give them work pretty much, all year round. So I think it keeps us on our toes because you might get a bit relaxed in the off season and then you have to speed things up for the winter season; this way you keep yourself at a very busy pace, all year round.”Ralph Higgs, Tourist Board Director, was pleased with the processing speed of TCI Border Control but said, there is some work to be done.“Today is clearly a very busy day. A very impressive eight or nine jets are on their airport at the same time, I think that speaks to a lot of positive things but it also speaks to situations that we must internally address as quickly as we can. Sometimes success can present challenges and we are very cognizant of that, and we will continue grow as we try to mitigate the challenges that growth brings.”There was reportedly a disgruntled guest who posted a long waiting time on the arrivals side in Provo on social media; but President of the Hotel & Tourism Association, Michel Nuetelings said there have been no complaints officially. “It would be better if they were spaced out, but I think we the airport expansion things are a lot smoother than they used to be and I think everyone is putting in every single effort possible to make it work. Now you always have a few people who may complain about it but I think we know how to turn those around in our hotels and in the various services they get to, they know how to turn that around and make sure people leave here with a memorable experience.”It was unknown what the average processing time per guest family is at the PIA. Later, hear what Minister of Tourism, Porsha Smith and other delegates had to say about that inaugural flight from Houston which touched down Saturday in Provo.
