first_imgSANTA ANITA’S 40-DAY SPRING MEET UNDERWAY; ADMISSION GATES OPEN ON FRIDAY AT 7:15 A.M. ARCADIA, Calif. (May 5, 2016)–Well placed at the rail around the far turn, English-bred Nancy From Nairobi wheeled three-wide turning for home and unleashed a devastating turn of foot to take Thursday’s Grade II, $200,000 Royal Heroine Stakes by a half length over favored Faufiler. Trained by John Sadler and ridden by Abel Lezcano, Nancy From Nairobi stopped the clock after a flat mile on turf in 1:37.12.Ridden by Lezcano in all five of her stateside starts, Nancy From Nairobi registered her third win in a row and got her first ever graded stakes victory in the process.“The Gamely ($300,000, Grade I at 1 1/8 miles on turf May 30) will be next,” said Sadler. “My other mare, Elektrum, ran well too, went through traffic and came flying to be fifth. So we should have two for the Gamely, although we might try to separate them.”Off at 5-1 in a full field of 14 older fillies and mares, Nancy From Nairobi paid $12.20, $6.40 and $4.20. Owned by Hronis Racing, LLC, she picked up $120,000 for the win, increasing her earnings to $271,456. She now has three wins and a second from five starts over the Santa Anita lawn.“The turf was soft, so it basically fit her, she likes that,” said Lezcano. “I just had my hands down on her and I waited, waited…In the stretch, I had no traffic. I was on the outside and I was in the clear, no complaints.”Last after a half mile, Irish-bred Faufiler, who shipped in from Fair Hill Training Center in Maryland, came flying down the middle of the course but ran out of real estate late while finishing second, 1 ¼ lengths in front of Fanticola.Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke, Faufiler was off at 9-2 and paid $5.60 and $4.20.Fanticola, who won last year’s Royal Heroine and broke from the extreme outside today, attended the pace with Joe Talamo up, made the lead briefly inside the furlong pole and stayed gamely for third, finishing a half length in front of Havanna Belle.Off at 11-1, Fanticola paid $9.20 to show.Fractions on the race were 22.88, 47.49, 1:12.28 and 1:24.79.With Santa Anita’s 40-day Spring Meet underway, admission gates will open early on Friday, Kentucky Oaks Day, at 7:15 a.m. The Grade III, $100,000 American Stakes, which has been carded as race six, will highlight a nine-race program. There is a Pick Six carryover into Friday of $32,393 and first post time is at 2 p.m.last_img read more

Besides a shiny silver bowl, the reward comes in lucrative breeding rights and a lifetime of bragging rights.This was the 47th overall best in show win for the wire fox with a champion’s name of Kingarthur Van Foliny Home.

A different perspective

first_img“It’s to give them alternative means of expressing themselves, rather than violence and self-destructive behaviors,” said Elizabeth Converse, executive director of California Living Histories, a nonprofit organization that provides art and literacy programs for youngsters in Pasadena, Sierra Madre and other San Gabriel Valley cities. “It gets them out of their homes. Most of their families have both parents working or not around, or might have a negative environment, or might be foster kids,” said Converse, who was the exhibit’s project manager. Digital cameras were given to the teens, who then were taught how to download and work with the photos in a computer laboratory at John Muir High School. The participants also did their writing in the lab. “We use photography as a language,” Converse explained. “We taught them how to notice and share their visions of their own lives and communities and families. It’s visual literacy, and the kids really need a voice and need to express themselves.” Marquasha Kitchen, 13, an eighth-grader at Charles Eliot Middle School, focused on her 14-year-old friend and role model, Pasadena High School freshman Taylor Walk. Their visions are free from bullets, blood and brawls. The photographs and words that will decorate the walls of the Jackie Robinson Community Center beginning this afternoon show smiling faces, scenic views and beautiful buildings – a softer side of life in Northwest Pasadena as seen through the eyes of 25 of the area’s teenagers. In the past year, the city’s troubled northwest corner has been riddled with gang activity and multiple homicides. The last week of September alone saw the murders of two young people, including a 17-year-old boy. But the exhibit, titled, “New Words-New Visions,” the culmination of an intensive five-week writing and photography class, is a welcome ray of sunshine in an area sometimes viewed as gloomy and dangerous. The two like to chat on the phone and go to church together. “She taught me that you shouldn’t worry about when people are talking about you,” Kitchen said. “Just keep doing what you have to do and get good grades.” Kitchen expressed interest in being a National Geographic photographer when the idea of traveling to other countries to shoot pictures was presented to her. “I hope I get a camera for Christmas so I can keep taking pictures,” she said. Converse noted that some of the students involved don’t have digital cameras and computers at home like the ones made available to them during the summer course. “They are vulnerable to poverty, gang activity and poor schools,” she said. “They do not have access to this kind of technology in their homes, necessarily.” Terrell Joyce, 12, who attends Blair International Baccalaureate School, said he doesn’t think his father, Sylvester Joyce III, noticed when he took an intense close-up at Louisiana Fried Chicken & Doughnuts while they were eating. His father, a construction worker, appears sweaty, tattooed and wearing torn, white tank top. “I got to know what it felt like to be a photographer,” said Terrell, whose 18-year-old brother, C.J., also took the summer class. Converse said the $25,000 project was funded by the California Council for the Humanities, the Flintridge Foundation and the Pasadena Community Foundation, along with private donors. At 3 p.m. today, award-winning novelist and journalist Jervey Tervalon, who helped teach the summer class, will lead a panel discussion about the significance of the teens’ work. “They’re being treated as real (college) candidates, just as if they went to a magnet school,” Converse said. “They have the same innate gifts and talents, and they’re fascinating. What they have to say is absolutely mesmerizing. They’re not different than any other youth – they just don’t have the same opportunities.” molly.okeon@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4496160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

An emotional reunion along D-Day beaches

first_imgASNELLES-SUR-MER, France – American and British veterans marked the 62nd anniversary of the D-Day landings Tuesday with ceremonies and talks to schoolchildren about the invasion that changed the course of World War II. Hundreds of relatives and others joined at least two dozen veterans to remember the June 6, 1944, invasion on Normandy’s beaches that helped free France – and much of Europe – from Nazi Germany’s grip. Former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge laid a wreath along with the U.S. ambassador to France at the American cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer, where thousands of crosses and Stars of David mark soldiers’ graves on a finely groomed lawn. At Utah Beach, where thousands of Americans stormed ashore, about 150 people gathered for a ceremony to honor veterans from the 101st Airborne Division under blue skies. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2“The weather wasn’t like this 62 years ago,” recalled Bill Thornan, 86, who landed on a nearby beach on D-Day and was among more than a dozen American veterans at the ceremony in Saint-Marie du Mont. Others remembered how the airborne drop by the 101st went awry for some American parachutists: They landed behind German lines, but outside the planned drop zones. “I remember insulting the pilot of our plane because he didn’t drop us in the right area,” recalled Jack Dickson, 83. He also said the anniversary is an important time to reflect. “I hope I’ll be here next year to send this message to future generations: Never forget the horror of war – and never forget that men died on these Normandy beaches to free the world.” U.S. reservists – including some who served in Iraq and Afghanistan – took part in commemorative parachute jumps Sunday and Monday ahead of the anniversary. “It’s a very special day in history, when the United States, with the British and the Canadians, outfoxed the Nazis,” U.S. Ambassador Craig Stapleton told The Associated Press. “Any American who has come to the beaches of Normandy, or any of our cemeteries in Europe, goes back with a different perspective on what Americans have done in Europe.” A new, $25 million visitors center is to open on D-Day next year at the Colleville-sur-Mer cemetery to detail events surrounding the D-Day invasion, Stapleton said. He said about 1.4 million people visit the U.S. cemetery every year. About 1,000 people attended an official D-Day ceremony Tuesday in Asnelles-sur-Mer, part of Gold Beach, where British soldiers came ashore. The site of the official anniversary alternates between the U.S. and British landing zones every year, Stapleton said. French Veterans Minister Hamlaoui Mekachera called the invasion, which bore the codename Operation Overlord, one of the greatest events in history. Speaking at the ceremony, he praised the “brothers-in-arms” from eight countries – the United States, Belgium, Britain, Canada, France, Poland, the Netherlands and Norway – who died “to defend the cause of freedom.” In the early morning, a few veterans from Britain’s 231st Infantry Brigade went to Gold Beach to remember lost friends and talk to villagers and schoolchildren about their experiences. “It’s very moving to be here,” said 87-year-old Ken Ewing. “To see this beach where many friends lost their lives gives me the chills and makes me think we should never forget; we must never forget.” A dozen schoolchildren read poems they wrote for the occasion. Children asked such questions as “Were you afraid?” “I am very moved to be with them,” said Laura Guyon, 11. “These older gentleman were crying when they were on the beach.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
