SMART TIME ‘He’s the only horse I have trained in the past year, and by virtue of his performances, has put me on the map,” added the 57-year-old, who started training in 2007. A past student of Jamaica College, Sirjue disclosed that in addition to GARY GLITTER (7-2), he now conditions an unraced two-year-old and, recently acquired the recent winner, SEEKING THE DAWN, who is scheduled to run in tomorrow’s eighth race. Sirjue said that he plans to take his training more seriously this year with the acquisition of more horses via the claiming market, He credited trainer Gary Subratie for his growth as a trainer, having been his assistant for a number of years, and also owner-trainer Gordon Lewis for allowing him to train GARY GLITTER. On Wednesday, the four-year-old gelding by Deputy Glitters out of True Virtue tracked the leaders POLLY B and SIR BUDGET into the straight before disposing of SIR BUDGET approaching the distance, moving away to beat him by eight lengths in the smart time of 1:11.1. Rayan Wilson was again in the saddle. Meanwhile, the nine-race programme saw the 3-5 favourite DIFERENTGENERATION, with former champion Dane Nelson up, staving off the fast-finishing FIERY PATH (10-1) to win the Millard Ziadie Memorial Cup over 1100 metres to complete a quick double for in-form trainer Steven Todd on the nine-race programme.

C. Following his fast-time runaway win over 1200 metres in open allowance company at Caymanas Park on Wednesday, GARY GLITTER has improved to such an extent that the sky’s the limit as far as his connections are concerned. The four-year-old is trained by Dalton Sirjue for owner-breeder Gordon Lewis, both of whom believe they have a potential sprint champion on their hands. “He’s unbeaten in two races this season, and prior to that, on Boxing Day, lost out in a needle finish to CHOO CHOO BLUE over six furlongs,” said Sirjue, the elder brother of 1980s jockey Ian Sirjue. “This was his sixth win from 20 career starts, and he is proving to be a gold mine for us. His next objective is the valuable King’s Plate over seven furlongs towards the end of the month. If he wins another race at the open allowance level, he will move up to grade one company to tackle the likes of SEEKING MY DREAM and BUZZ NIGHTMARE. ON THE MAP
Dear Editor,The concept of a new voters’ list is utter nonsense, since the existing list is still valid and is supposed to be kept up-to-date by GECOM.Who authorised the H2H Registration? Was it James Patterson, who was pronounced by the CCJ to be illegally appointed by David Granger?Yet, after he was forced to resign, his illegal order was still carried out by someone whose excuse was that he was following James Patterson’s orders.Anyway, the H2H Registration commenced, and should have been stopped immediately by the new GECOM Chairperson after her appointment. She has all authority to do so. I am sure that, like every Guyanese citizen, Madam Chairperson is keeping abreast with the critical political situation, and there was no need for her to be advised on the way forward after her appointment, as was stated in the media.The H2H Registration ended on Saturday, August 31, 2019. There are still thousands of persons who have not been registered. Why was there so much speed to allow the illegal registration to continue four days after it was called off?This whole H2H Registration is a waste of precious time and money. The big question is: How can they add to the existing list an incomplete list that is one-sided and unverified? Educated people have become dunces. There will be mass confusion, deliberate omissions, and illegal entries to suit purposes. They can never emerge with a credible and authentic list. The whole world is watching at this foolishness.Sincerely,Kenneth Seepaul

“We conceded a goal off our own mistake. Our so called good players can’t keep the ball. The work that I do off the field, the preparations by watching other teams and in training, it is like I am talking to a brick wall sometimes,” Kerr fumed after the match against Mathare.He added; “I need to do some serious hunting in the June transfer window because I have seen, and I don’t want complacency to set in. We got the quality but we don’t use that quality.”The second consecutive 2-2 draw posted by the record Kenyan champions sees their lead remain three points at the top, though they have the prestige of two un-played matches due to their CAF Confederation Cup schedule.Gor Mahia skipper Harun Shakava controls the ball under pressure from Mathare United’s Chris Oduor and Francis Omondi during their Kenyan Premier League clash on April 29, 2018 at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaThe weight of the congested calendar seems to have already started settling into the feet of the players and their concession of eight goals in four matches has been a huge grey area to the Kenyan giants.“It is very hard for me because we have a tough run of fixtures and some of the mistakes we do in matches should be corrected in training. We have a plan in place to keep the players refreshed but sometimes it is very tough because you don’t want to tire the players,” the tactician further noted.After Mathare’s tedious game on Sunday, Gor will only have a day for rest and recovery before switching their attention to the Hull City play-off match against arch rivals AFC Leopards on Tuesday in Nakuru.This will be a headache of sorts for the tactician whose side travels to Kigali, Rwanda, for their first CAF Confederations Cup match against Rayon Sports just five days later.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr shouts instructions on the touchline during his side’s Kenyan Premier League clash against Mathare United on April 29, 2018 at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

We have travel to think about, we have the game then five days later we have the Confederations Cup which is important for us,” the coach says.“But we know we have a derby which is important for the fans and the Hull City is important to my players because they want to have a chance to play against an English side. I have to pick a team of players who want to play, who want to win,” the coach further noted.He expects a tough challenge from Ingwe despite the fact that they have not been doing well in the league, but he is yet to conclude whether or not to field his best team for the Tuesday afternoon tie.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr reacts on the touchline during his side’s Kenyan premier League clash against Mathare United on April 29, 2018 at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 30- With the mid-season transfer window just over a month away, Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr has hinted that he may be going out into the market to strengthen the team and has warned his players not to start getting comfortable.The British tactician was left red with anger after Sunday evening’s 2-2 draw with Mathare United in Machakos and was specifically enraged with winger Samuel Onyango for two reasons; first, he missed a brilliant opportunity to make it 3-1 off a counter and second, lost the ball in the build up to Mathare’s late equalizer.
Jaap Stam insists he has not been approached about leaving Reading this summer, though understands you cannot be sure of anything in football.The 44-year-old Dutchman, appointed last summer, guided the Royals to the Championship play-off final after finishing third in the regular season – though they were beaten by Huddersfield in the Wembley showpiece.Despite failing to reach the Premier League, Stam’s success has led to reported interest from top flight clubs, who are impressed with the coach’s excellent work with a team expected to amount to little this season.Speaking to talkSPORT following the final defeat, Stam was asked whether he will still be at the Madejski Stadium next season.He replied: “In football you can’t be sure of nothing [sic], but I still have a contract for another season.“There’s nobody who’s approached the club or myself.“You always talk about ‘we’, as ‘we’ work together as a club and the people within the club – it’s not only myself, but the technical staff and the team and everybody around it is doing everything in their power to make this club top a success and eventually get success as well.“If nothing is happening I’m, of course, still here. And like I said before, I still have a contract for another season, so at the moment I don’t really want to think about what’s going to happen.”

The ‘Yes’ vote in the Fiscal Treaty represents the buying of time for Ireland to secure vitally necessary concessions including a deal on promissory notes.This was the reaction of Marian Harkin MEP to today’s ‘Yes’ vote which, she said, had now to be used effectively by the Government to negotiate a sustainable resolution of Ireland’s sovereign and domestic debt.She said: “Ireland’s debt position must now be dealt with in the context of changing attitudes in EU capitals. Europe-wide calls for a greater emphasis on growth grow louder by the day, and the evolving treatment of Spain and Greece clearly means that Ireland, having now enshrined the discipline of the Fiscal Treaty in its constitution, must be given a fresh hearing. “This must involve a retrospective deal covering the recapitalisation of Ireland’s banks and the promissory notes. Ireland, having endorsed the Treaty and thus recognised the need for common rules for a common currency, must have this commitment acknowledged and any concessions given to Spain or any other EU country provided equally to Ireland.“This Treaty is just one piece of the jigsaw puzzle, and while fiscal discipline and fiscal responsibility are part and parcel of being part of a common currency, these rules must be accompanied – and soon – by a growth compact and ideally a roadmap for project bonds, Eurobonds and some kind of redemption fund to bring down excessive debt.”“I profoundly disagree with those on the ‘no’ side who claimed that rejecting the Treaty would give us more leverage for negotiating with our EU partners. In fact, I believe that this result – which represents a re-affirmation of Ireland’s belief in European values and the single European currency – will be our greatest negotiating asset when we next sit down to resolve our shared issues,” Marian Harkin MEP concluded.

Smiling Paedophile: Peter CorcoranEVIL paedophile Peter Corcoran, jailed this week for 12 years for the sickening sexual abuse of children, abused some of them when on parole for killing a mother and child in a car smash.The 41-year-old was arrested on Christmas Even 1990 after driving his car head-on into a vehicle driven by Patrick McGlinchey.Mr McGlinchey’s wife Patricia, aged 35, and their daughter Anne Louise, aged just five died in the crash. Mr McGlinchey and his son, also called Patrick and then aged 10, were injured in the incident.Corcoran was later jailed for causing death by dangerous driving.By that stage he had already been sexually abusing his victims – boys and girls – for six years.And when he was released on parole a year later he began abusing them again. The McGlincheys, from Loch na nDeorann, Annagry, were left devastated by the tragedy.Corcoran was just 15 when he started sexually abusing his victims.One victim said he didn’t tell anyone because “I didn’t think anyone would believe a child”.He said he started drinking and smoking cannabis. This led to selling drugs and he ended up going to prison.He said he tried to kill himself a few times and is now on medication to treat depression, anxiety and symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder. He said: “I used to cry myself to sleep. I always felt dirty and still do to this day.“I feel like I am dead inside and have done for a long time … I feel like I’m living a life sentence.”Detective Garda Bosco Gallagher told this week’s court that the first victim was aged eight when Corcoran began forcing her to perform oral sex on him. He was aged 15 and abused her for the next six years.He began abusing her brother in 1986 and would attempt to have anal sex with the 10-year-old in front of the child’s friend. Corcoran would also abuse this friend on the same occasions. The first victim to report the abuse went to gardaí in 2010 after confronting Corcoran on New Year’s Eve 2009.In his victim impact report this man said to Corcoran: “You smiled. It was that condescending smile that gave me the stamina to make a statement. It was only then that I learned you had abused my brother and two of my sisters.”Another victim was seven when Corcoran began molesting her in 1987, when Corcoran was aged 18. He would later abuse her eight-year-old brother.He was on periods of temporary release from prison in 1992 when he began abusing the seven-year-old boy. This abuse went on for six years.The final victim said he was 17 when Corcoran would force him to perform oral sex on him as a “daily routine”.One victim said she told her husband about the abuse before their wedding and that they asked Corcoran to stay away. She said when he showed up at the church it ruined her day. He then insisted on sitting at a table reserved for family.CHILD RAPIST CORCORAN KILLED MOTHER AND DAUGHTER IN CAR SMASH was last modified: April 25th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:CHILD RAPIST CORCORAN KILLED MOTHER AND DAUGHTER IN CAR SMASH
