Start the new year right with All Correct

first_imgHaving saddled five of the six winners of the major trophy races in the last quarter of last year, 15-time champion trainer Wayne DaCosta is likely to continue where he left off in 2015 by winning the CTL Fan Appreciation Day Trophy overnight allowance feature with down-in-class ALL CORRECT at Caymanas Park today.DaCosta will mount a two-pronged challenge in the 1820 metres event as in addition to ALL CORRECT, he will saddle last year’s winner ROYAL VIBES in a nine-horse field. A year ago, ROYAL VIBES got up in the nick of time to deny hot favourite ALL CORRECT by a head.Since then, ALL CORRECT has rubbed shoulders with the best in grade one company, while ROYAL VIBES has declined in ability.better run expectedWith DaCosta calling up four-time champion Omar Walker, ALL CORRECT having finished eight lengths, sixth to stable-companion SEEKING MY DREAM in the recent Diamond Mile, clocking a personal time of 1:38.0 in that fast-run race, will report even better today. As such, he is likely to stave off the vastly improved HOUDINI’S MAGIC, who won the Royal Dad Trophy over this trip on November 21, and will again be ridden by newly crowned champion jockey Shane Ellis for trainer Anthony ‘Baba’ Nunes.DaCosta capped a record-breaking season on Boxing Day by winning the co-feature races, the $4 million Supreme Ventures Jamaica 2-Y-O Stakes with FUTURE KING and the Harry Jackson Memorial Cup with top distance horse PERFECT NEIGHBOUR for an 11 straight trainers’ title and an unprecedented 15 overall, surpassing Hall of Famer Philip Feanny with 14.DaCosta not only won the Boxing Day co-features, but saddled PERFECT NEIGHBOUR to win the Burger King Gold Cup on October 17, DREAMLINER to win the Cash Pot ‘Only One For Me’ Trophy for two-year-olds on October 19, and SEEKING MY DREAM who won the inaugural running of the $13.5 million Diamond Mile on December 5.Also on the 10-race programme are the New Year’s Day Trophy over 1300 metres, here the DaCosta-trained DRIPPING IN GOLD (Robert Halledeen up) starts favourite; and the $180,000 claiming race over 1820 metres for the McKay Security Trophy to be run in two divisions, both attracting 11 starters.In division one, OH MY GRANDPA has a strong chance based on his close third to GO GO TRAIN in a blanket finish over this trip on a $210,000 claiming tag on October 24.Division two looks tailored for GOFORTHEGLORY, who not only has appealing form, but steps down two classes to vie for this trophy.He can win from PERFECT FLYER and CAUSE FOR CONCERN, who won this race in 2014 when owned by Carlton Watson.last_img read more

Actorpolitician Innocents troll on Rahul Gandhi miserably backfires

first_imgVeteran Malayalam actor Innocent is now the Member of Parliament from the Chalakkudy constituency. Even though the actor had previously revealed that he will not be contesting in elections, upon party’s compulsion, he later decided to contest in the upcoming poll from the same constituency as the CPI(M) candidate. Recently, Innocent shared a picture of Rahul Gandhi on his Facebook page that featured RaGa sleeping inside the Lok Sabha. In the same picture, Innocent was seen sitting behind Rahul with open eyes.Innocent also captioned the image, ‘I stay awake for the Chalakkudi constituency’, as translated from Malayalam. The image shared by Innocent soon went viral on Facebook, and CPI(M) followers lauded their candidate for sharing such a hilarious photo. However, a section of social media users lashed out at the actor stating that he has done nothing for Chalakkudi constituency in the past five years.A user sarcastically commented that voters in Chalakkudi will now give resting time for Innocent in the next five years, as he has not slept for the past few years. Another person commented that he used to feel embarrassed to say that Innocent is their Member of Parliament. It should be noted that the party’s decision to nominate Innocent for the upcoming elections has not gone well with CPI(M) workers too. A section of party workers believes that Innocent is a weak candidate who used to continuously underperform during the Lok Sabha sessions.A couple of years back, Innocent during a speech revealed that there is not much work to do in Parliament. His comments racked up negative criticisms from all corners, and people claimed that he does not deserve a spot in Lok Sabha.On the acting front, Innocent was last seen in the movie ‘Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu’ which starred Pranav Mohanlal in the lead. He also played a crucial role in Mohanlal’s ‘Odiyan’ last year.last_img read more
