Siracusa. Tre giorni di equitazione ENDAS al Mediterraneo


Ospite all’interno degli ampi spazi dell’Ippodromo del Mediterraneo di Siracusa, da venerdì 9 a domenica 11 novembre sarà l’Endas Dipartimento Equitazione ad organizzare una tre giorni dedicata alla passione per il cavallo.

Il Comitato Endas Sicilia Dipartimento Equitazione si è aggiudicata la sede per i Campionati Nazionali Assoluti di disciplina, ottima occasione per abbinare una serie di eventi regionali tra cui il Trofeo Dei Circoli Sicilia. Quindi in programma le gare di Equitazione da Lavoro (Completo Endas), le gare di Speed Trial Cronometrata e le gare di Ability Western.

Novità assoluta, la gara di Abilità Cronometrata con le speciali carrozze, dette Attacchi, quale prova valida per il Campionato Nazionale Assoluto Concorso Sportattacchi.

Previsti, ancora, speciali eventi come “Cavalli Barocchi in Sicilia”.

Uno spazio riservato non poteva mancare per l’attività sociale, “L’empatia con il cavallo” dedicata al primo approccio assistito con il cavallo e la partecipazione di diverse associazioni che si occupano di disagio.

I partecipanti ai Campionati Nazionali Assoluti, provenienti da diverse regioni d’Italia dove si sono svolte le selezioni, si cimenteranno per la prima volta in uno dei templi dell’ippica. Doveroso  citare le compagini più qualitative: Umbria, Sicilia, Lazio, Campania. Essenziale per gli organizzatori dare grande spazio ai numerosi centri isolani per il Trofeo Dei Circoli dove parteciperanno i cavalieri e le amazzoni più qualitativi di ogni realtà regionale selezionati tra coloro che hanno già effettuato i Campionati Regionali in Sicilia. 

Il via alle gare previsto sabato, dalle ore 10,30. Si proseguirà, in contemporanea al convegno di galoppo nel pomeriggio, con la caratteristica sfilata inaugurale cui parteciperanno autorità e istituzioni.

Domenica mattina, l’apertura  sarà affidata all’attività sociale assistita, per poi proseguire con le prove calendarizzate delle varie discipline infine si concluderà con la premiazione prevista alle ore 16, presso il tondino dell’Ippodromo.

 “Onorati di aver avuto assegnati i Campionati Assoluti – sottolinea Giuseppe Raniolo, Responsabile Dipartimento Equitazione Endas Area Sud e Coordinatore Regionale per la Sicilia – a riprova e a premio dell’ottimo lavoro svolto dall’ Endas Equitazione Sicilia. La scelta della location, quale l’Ippodromo del Mediterraneo tempio dell’ippica e del cavallo in genere, ha lo scopo di impreziosire l’evento attraverso sinergie reali. Da evidenziare che in questa manifestazione la passione per l’equitazione, per lo sport e per il cavallo, si intreccia in un momento di incontro, di coesione sociale, di risveglio culturale, di impegno per i più deboli”.

KOREA : Busan Friday: Race-By-Race Preview (November 9)

by gyongmaman

There is group race action at Busan this coming Sunday with the Gyeongnam Governor’s Cup. the final leg of the Queen’s Tour, but before that things get underway with an 11-race card on Friday from 10:45 to 18:00. Here are the previews:


It’s Friday. It’s Busan!


Race 1: Class 6 (1300M) Allowance / KRW 24 Million

A step up in trip could well be what (1) RACING GALLOPER needs and that’s what he gets after three decent but unspectacular spins at 1000M. He’s not shown much in the way of speed but has run on each time and can win here. (3) KEEP GOING already has a 2nd place to her name at this distance in what was perhaps slightly tougher company than this and she has very solid claims too. Those two are the standouts although (6) HUNTER PARK and (10) TONGIL HANGUK have shown some potential and could get close while (2) GIDAEHAE actually managed to finish ahead of Racing Galloper when they faced each other in August. That form was overturned when they next met but an improved showing can’t be ruled out.

Selections (1) Racing Galloper (3) Keep Going (2) Gidaehae (6) Hunter Park
Next Best 10, 7
Fast Start 1, 7, 10

Race 2: Class 6 (1300M) Allowance / KRW 24 Million

(2) GEUMA GHOST was set to be favourite two weeks ago when she dumped her jockey on the ground on the way to the gate. That confidence among punters was caused by her 2nd place on debut in September and while she’s up in trip here, if she manages to make it to the start, she should be on pace early and can go close. The biggest danger is (4) GIRL CRUSH. She made an inauspicious debut in February and then didn’t return until August. She’s been very solid in three subsequent outings with two 3rds and a 5th and looks to have a win in her sooner or later. (1) EDGE OF WINNER made a comeback of her own two weeks ago and while she only managed an indifferent 7th of 12 over 1000M, she most likely needed the run and today’s trip should suit more. (10) GOLDUI INYEON resumes today off a spell and is another who has proven herself competitive at this distance.

Selections (4) Girl Crush (2) Geuma Ghost (1) Edge Of Winner (10) Goldui Inyeon
Next Best 9, 8
Fast Start 2, 3

Race 3: Class 6 (1000M) Allowance / KRW 60 Million

A full field of juvenile maidens and seven of the twelve are making their racecourse debuts here. Among the ones who have raced before, (3) FOX COLORING is the only one to have raced twice, improving into 4th on the latest of those and she can be expected to run solidly today. (2) SAND TIGER ran a decent 5th on debut a month ago and will also be well backed here. Aside from that pair, it’s the first-timers who will be expected to go well. (6) MABEOP CHEOREOM won a trial in a fast time last month and if she brings that kind of form to the races, she’ll go very close. (11) SAMBA RHYTHM wasn’t too far away in the very same heat and she too can go well first up. (8) FUNKY and (9) B.K. SOUND also trialed up together, Funky emerging on top and both of those should be in the hunt for at least some minor money. As ever with this kind of race, keep an eye on the market for clues.

Selections (6) Mabeop Cheoreom (8) Funky (2) Sand Tiger (3) Fox Coloring
Next Best 11, 9
Fast Start 2, 7, 9

Race 4: Class 5 (1000M) Handicap / KRW 40 Million

It should be hard to recommend a twenty-six race maiden to win any race but this race does look to be (7) DANCING BLAZE’s to lose. She comes in off the back of consecutive runner-up finishes, beating three of these along the way last time and this could well be her day. So it could too for (8) FELICE. He’s also a maiden, in his case after eleven attempts and while he was one of those beaten by Dancing Blaze a month ago he returned just two weeks ago and ran a good 4th at this distance. He tends to leave himself a bit much to do but he’s not without ability. (3) B.K. MARINE was a winner at this distance in August (beating Dancing Blaze) and should be on pace early. (4) LUCKY ADELE steps up in class after coming close on each of her first four outings and shouldn’t be out of his depth here. (9) REALLY ONE looks best of the rest.

Selections (7) Dancing Blaze (8) Felice (3) B.K. Marine (4) Lucky Adele
Next Best 9, 11
Fast Start 1, 3, 4, 10

Race 5: Class 5 (1300M) Handicap / KRA 40 Million

(8) K PLUS WON is up in class following a 4th and a pair of 2nd place finishes from three starts so far. He looks nicely in here, should get on pace from the starts and can go all the way. (3) JAESAENGMYEONGNI ran a good 2nd over class and distance on October 19th, just missing out by a nose. He’ll be ridden patiently again and can be a danger late on. (5) ROYAL CLUB was a touch disappointing last start on October 12th at 1200M. He entered that race following two very close 2nd and 3rd place finishes in August and September and is well worth another chance here. (11) SWEEP MAN actually finished ahead of Royal Club in that October 12th race and can look to match the 4th he managed that day.

Selections (8) K Plus Won (5) Royal Club (3) Jaesangmyeongni (11) Sweep Man
Next Best 7, 12
Fast Start 6, 8, 12

Race 6: Class 4 (1300M) Handicap / KRW 60 Million

(5) SPOT survived an inquiry to keep a narrow victory over 1200M on October 26th. It was his second win in six starts in what has been a bit of an interrupted career to date. Read more of this post

No Nay Never price quadrupled and five new faces on Coolmore roster for 2019

Galileo remains private while Camelot rewarded with increase

No Nay Never: made an excellent start with his first two-year-old runners
No Nay Never: made an excellent start with his first two-year-old runners
By Martin Stevens, 

No Nay Never has been rewarded for a bold start with his first two-year-old runners this year with a quadrupling of his fee to €100,000 at Coolmore in 2019.

The son of late sire sensation Scat Daddy has supplied in excess of 25 individual winners including unbeaten Middle Park Stakes hero Ten Sovereigns, Richmond Stakes victor Land Force and Listed scorers All The King’s Men, Mae Never No, No Needs Never and Servalan.

The price increase is one of the most notable features of Coolmore’s stallion roster in Ireland for next year, along with no fewer than five new faces.

Saxon Warrior, the Racing Post Trophy and 2,000 Guineas winner by Deep Impact, is the most expensive of those at €30,000, while champion two-year-old and July Cup winner US Navy Flag, by War Front, is introduced at €25,000.

Both are out of champion daughters of Coolmore phenomenon Galileo– whose fee remains private for another season – in Maybe and Misty For Me.

Galileo’s Group 2-winning and multiple Group 1-placed son Gustav Klimt is retired to stand alongside his sire at a fee of €7,500, while Sioux Nation, another precious son of Scat Daddy who struck in the Phoenix Stakes and Norfolk Stakes, has been assigned an introductory price of €12,500.

The operation’s fifth new recruit is Merchant Navy, who won the Coolmore Stud Stakes in his native Australia and travelled to Royal Ascot this year to take the Diamond Jubilee Stakes. The son of Fastnet Rock will stand at €20,000.

Fastnet Rock himself remains at €70,000 next year.

Camelot, who leads the second-season sire lists after fielding Group 1 winners Athena, Latrobe and Wonderment, has received a fee increase to €40,000 from €30,000 in 2018.
