Wellington steps up for TG in Red Stripe Premier League

first_imgTivoli Gardens scored another massive victory to pull further away from the relegation zone, scoring a 1-0 win over Portmore United at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex yesterday.Rodico Wellington netted the game’s only goal from the penalty spot on 24 minutes to lift the West Kingston team to 32 points.Portmore ended the game with 10 players as Omar Daley was red-carded at the 41st minute.The goal was Wellington’s third of the season and the former Denham Town High School Manning Cup player, who is in his third Premier League season, says he is looking to fill the boots of Junior Flemmings, the club’s leading scorer this season, who left the island for an overseas contract recently.”I have taken over from Junior Flemmings because he has gone away on contract, so I told myself that I have to come out and do it for him. This is my third season and I feel I have found my footing (in league). My aim was 10 (goals) at the start of the season and right now I am at three, but I still think I can reach that amount,” he told The Gleaner.”Mr Bailey (coach Glendon) has given us more fitness and a mentality when we go into games to not lose. He has built my confidence a lot and that gives me the courage to go out and work hard and execute and we can make the top four. We just have to work hard and have the mindset to make the top four,” he said.FIRST-HALF PENALTYThe home team was better in the first half, and 24 minutes into the contest, Tivoli were awarded a penalty and Wellington fired past Shaven Sean Paul to give the hosts the lead.Portmore’s troubles were made worse four minutes before the break when captain Omar Daley received a second yellow card for insulting and verbally abusing the match referee.The defeat was the fourth in six games for Portmore, which is of some concern for assistant coach Jeffrey Hewitt, with the play-offs fast approaching.”This (defeat) will have a psychological impact. Our form is of some concern and we are trying to work on it. We thought the poor run was gone after four points from two games. But, today, we lost and we had to get the result and we didn’t get it,” he said.Tivoli’s assistant coach Damian Gordon said they are not out of the woods as yet.”We have to take it on a game-by-game situation. We have to look at the teams below us, so we have to keep on winning points,” he said.Yesterday’s ResultsTivoli 1 Portmore 0UWI FC 1 MoBay United 1Reno FC 1 Humble Lion 1Cavalier 0 Boys’ Town 0Today’s game9 p.m. Harbour View vs Rivoli United at Harbour View Mini Stadiumlast_img read more

Post to Post for April 9 Guineas classics

first_imgThe season’s first classics, the 1000 and 2000 Guineas for native-bred three-year-old fillies and colts, respectively, will be run over a mile at Caymanas Park on Saturday, April 9 and for the second consecutive year Post to Post Betting are title sponsors.Plans for the 42nd annual Guineas Day were outlined by representatives of the sponsors and Caymanas Track Limited (CTL) at yesterday’s launch on the front lawns of Caymanas Park. Each race offers a purse of $3.25 million.According to Mikey Bell, sports betting manager, Post to Post Betting (P2P), the company has donated $4 million towards the day’s activities, including $1 million towards the purses of each Guineas, another million to support the remaining races on the card and a further million to promote the race.CTL’s racing secretary Denzil Miller Jr., said the two races, which represent the first legs of the Triple Crown series, are eagerly anticipated by racing fans.”They provide a real test for the three-year-olds for the Jamaica Derby two months later and is part of $17 million in total purses for the Triple Crown series this year,” noted Miller.He added that both races should be keenly contested, with last Saturday’s impressive Thornbird Stakes winner, the obvious ante-post favourite for the 1000 Guineas in whichothers such as SORRENTINO’S STAR, SIMPLY THE BEST, BIRD CATCHER, BUBBLING KITTEN and CLASSY AVIATOR should carry the fight to the Gary Subratie-trained filly.In the 2000 Guineas, Miller singled out CHACE THE GREAT, winner of last Saturday’s Prince Consort Stakes, along with the runner-up ORPEHUS. But he disclosed that ante-post favourite, FUTURE KING, winner of the $4.2 million Supreme Ventures Jamaica 2-Y-O Stakes over a mile last Boxing Day, is a doubtful starter.”The Wayne DaCosta-trained colt was a late scratch from the overnight allowance race last Saturday owing to a foot injury and it will be a race against time for him to recover. But as we all know, the welfare of the horse comes first and we are hoping for the best,” added the racing secretary.REACH AND ENGAGEBell said: “From our involvement last year we noted that this calendar event attracts a mixture of horse racing and sports enthusiasts, affording P2P the opportunity to reach and engage a wider cross-section of target groups with our growing product offerings, as we continue to deliver our promises that customers always ‘Get the most with Post to Post’,” he said.”Trading as P2P Betting & Gaming Entertainment, our mainstay remains primarily wagering in horse racing. Following the 2015 rebranding exercise, our horse racing product P2P AnyHorse is the lead brand in the sponsorship. And P2P AnyBet engages customers in a variety of international sports,” he added.Also speaking was Cedric Stewart, CEO of Caymanas Track Limited, while among those present were executives of Post to Post Betting, including the CEO, Sandra Donaldson, operations manager Carl Gowdie and board chairman Amber Stewart.last_img read more
