Newly crowned champion trainer Wayne DaCosta continued his dominance of the major trophy races in recent months when POKER STAR won the St Catherine Cup open allowance feature over 1100 metres at Caymanas Park yesterday to confirm his status as the country’s top sprinter.Installed a 4-5 favourite, with Robert Halledeen aboard, POKER STAR, coming from the number-one post position under topweight of 57.0kg, chased the fleet-footed BUZZ NIGHTMARE in the backstretch before getting the inside run and the lead when ‘BUZZ’ drifted out entering the straight.Under a bustling ride from Halledeen, the four-year-old bay gelding by Liquidity out of Buyabook kept on strongly in front to stave off the ever-present CAMPESINO (7-5) under new champion Shane Ellis on the inside by a length, covering the distance in the good time of 1:05.2 behind splits of 22.4 and 45.1 on a slow surface.Owned by Alexander Haber and bred by Y.S. (1955) Limited, POKER STAR, according to DaCosta, has come on a ton after disappointing over longer distances during the 2015 classic campaign but really wanted to sprint.”This is a horse who won twice over 1300 metres in 1:17.2, and having won the Glen Mills Caribbean Sprint championship behind a fast time in his previous race on November 14, knew he was ready for all comers in the sprint department … . His next race could be in February, and we will take it from there,” said the 15-time champion trainer, who saddled three winners on the 10-race programme.The others were 3-5 favourite CRUISING MOTION (Halledeen up) in the second race for maiden three-year-olds, and BIG GEORGE, a 1-5 favourite in the very next race over 1200 metres, with former champion Omar Walker aboard.Walker, who also won the opening race for high claimers aboard 9-5 favourite ITALIANO for trainer Neive Graham to complete a double, shared the riding honours with Halledeen on a day when POKER STAR was one of five winning favourites. The lightly raced MEDICAL INSTINCT at 20-1 in the sixth race for maiden five-year-olds and up provided the day’s major upset.
Tags:#Social Web#web In my last workplace, ordering food for the group was always a dreaded task. Regardless of how much you enjoy the company of your colleagues, there’s always someone with a nut allergy, someone who wants their dressing on the side and someone who is quite simply, a pain in the butt. Best known for its web-to-door food delivery service, DiningIn just launched a group ordering feature. Rather than having to painstakingly record your staff’s food preferences, users create an Evite-like invitation and give others carte blanche to fuss over their orders. DiningIn’s guest service is available in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia and Denver. The company offers users a chance to create an event and set a delivery time at least 90 minutes in advance of an order. Hosts then choose menus from local restaurants and national chains including California Pizza Kitchen and The Cheesecake Factory. One of the unique features of the site includes the ability to set a spending limit on a per guest basis or a “guests pay” option on individual meals. After the parameters of the event have been set, guest receive their invitations with the terms of payment built directly into the invite. The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos dana oshiro Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Although the dining selections for this service are currently limited, the convenience and flow of this site is phenomenal. In addition to the group ordering feature, DiningIn offers users online catering, a la carte orders and a meal concierge dial-in service for corporate customers. While companies like GrubHub and Foodler offer similar delivery services, only DiningIn allows users to avoid the order-by-committee scenario. To test the service visit Diningin.com.
