No cuts to Jockey Club racing prize contribution for 2019

first_img Regions: UK & Ireland Topics: Finance Sports betting Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter No cuts to Jockey Club racing prize contribution for 2019 UK racecourse operator to contribute £27.1m (€30m/$34.4m) to horse racing industry prize pool next year Jockey Club Racecourses (JCR) will not cut its contribution to prize money for the UK horse racing industry in 2019, despite admitting it faces a multi-million pound drop in media rights revenue in the coming year.JCR will provide £27.1m (€30m/$34.4m) to the pool used to pay winners’ prizes across the 347 scheduled fixtures taking place at its 15 racecourses in 2019. This will see it reduce investment in other areas, such as improving its facilities.By maintaining its funding level, JCR noted that its races would remain eligible for the industry’s Appearance Money Scheme (AMS). This ensures prizes are available for at least the first four finishers in each race, and that total prize funds are at least £900 above the minimum value. JCR’s decision comes as the racing industry braces for a drop in media rights revenue from the retail betting sector, as a resut of shop closures. With maximum stakes on B2 gaming machines set to be cut to £2 from April 2019, around 1,000 licensed betting offices are expected to be closed. Despite the challenging environment, chief executive Paul Fisher said that JCR was committed to supporting the racing industry.“We’ve had some tough decisions to make and we’ve chosen to prioritise our contribution to prize money because we know how important it is to racing’s participants,” he said. “We will maintain this record contribution from our resources for as long as we can, which comes at a cost to other areas of investment, such as improving our facilities.”Fellow racecourse owner Arena Racing Company (ARC) has already announced that it will reduce its executive contribution to prize money for races taking place at its tracks to £15.3m.Fisher admitted that JCR would continue to monitor the impact of shop closures on media rights revenue: “I hope people will understand we need to keep this decision under review in case LBO media rights revenues are hit harder and faster than the independent estimates, and we publish all our figures to be transparent on that,” he said.“It’s also not just a case of when legislative changes kick in; it’s also about when betting shop leases come up.”The Racecourse Association chair Maggie Carver praised JCR for its commitment to prize money in an era of significant financial uncertainty, describing it as a boost to the UK industry.“It is a challenging time for racecourses of all sizes with a wide range of business models and the RCA will continue to support all of its members as they deal with the rapidly changing media rights landscape,” she said.Philip Freedman, chairman of the Horsemen’s Group, added: “Horsemen will be relieved to know that Jockey Club Racecourses are maintaining their prize money levels in 2019, and recognise that as media rights income falls this represents a further investment by the Club in the sport.“Ensuring that all races are unlocked and preserving the 33% increase in grass roots values are particularly important for the vast majority of the horse population, on which the fixture list is dependent.”Image: Dan Heapcenter_img 20th December 2018 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Finance Email Addresslast_img read more

Saints and Sinners: The Weekend’s Talking Points

first_img The SaintsSilver service from the No 10sHarlequins outside-centre Alofa Alofa scored his first try for his new club in their 20-9 Aviva Premiership win over Northampton Saints and it was a memorable score for the quality of Nick Evans’ build-up play. The No 10 made a lovely break through the midfield, delayed his pass so an extra defender was taken out of the game, and then offloaded to Tim Visser who put Alofa away.Another No 10 with flair to spare, Danny Cipriani, created a beautiful try during Wasps’ 30-14 loss at Saracens. The fly-half broke the line, with a little hitch-kick helping him on his way, ghosted through into space and gave a perfectly timed pass to Josh Bassett to score. Flying start: Alofa Alofa scored a memorable try on his first start at the Stoop. (Photo: Getty Images) The beers are on AliAlistair Hargreaves is among our Saints this week for the generous gesture he made to Saracens fans after announcing his retirement from rugby this week. It was a weekend laden with tries as the Aviva Premiership and the Guinness Pro12 teams served up some scintillating rugby. Who were the major stars and who lost their sparkle? Fish’s chip is turning pointDan Fish had a poor kick out of defence charged down by Sam Davies just as the first quarter of Cardiff Blues’ match against the Ospreys was finishing, then compounded that error by holding Davies back after he hacked the loose ball towards the line. Fish conceded a penalty and was shown a yellow card and the Ospreys set up a try for Alun Wyn Jones from the subsequent lineout. The Blues were 10-3 up at the time and it proved to be a real turning point, as the Ospreys went on to win 46-24. Good work undoneGloucester can’t shake off their early-season blues and they did themselves no favours with a series of mistakes which turned a 27-14 lead with 13 minutes to go of their match at Exeter Chiefs into a 27-27 draw.First a weak attempt at a tackle from Billy Twelvetrees allowed Lachi Turner to break the line and make a marvellous offload to Ian Whitten, who scored a try.Four minutes later Ross Moriarty was penalised for not rolling away at a ruck and Gareth Steenson kicked the penalty to make it 27-22 then, in the last minute Gloucester gave away another penalty, Steenson kicked to touch up the left and Gloucester were unable to halt a rolling maul which ended in a try for Damian Welch. Steenson couldn’t quite land the conversion which would have stolen a win for the Chiefs. Double missThe Dragons were leading the Scarlets 20-7 with 35 minutes gone at Parc y Scarlets when a mistake from Jack Dixon – and from the match officials – let the home side back into the game.Liam Williams leapt to try to gather a high ball and clearly knocked it on, but referee Ben Whitehouse and his assistants didn’t see the offence.The Scarlets attacked from there and Dixon missed a tackled on Williams which allowed the Scarlets full-back to score a try. That brought the Scarlets back into the game and they went on to win 31-27. The 30-year-old, who is hanging up his boots due to a concussion injury, invited all Sarries fans to join him for a free pint of Wolfpack lager before Sunday’s Aviva Premiership match against Wasps at Allianz Park. All they needed to do was meet him at the Wolfpack bus between 1 and 2pm.The former Saracens skipper said: “The Sarries fans have welcomed me with open arms since I arrived in 2012 and I’d like to extend my gratitude to them by buying them all a beer on Sunday afternoon.” Half-century: Matt Banahan scores his 50th Aviva Premiership try. (Photo: Getty Images)Landmarks to celebrateMatt Banahan scored his 50th Aviva Premiership try for Bath in their 30-3 win over Sale Sharks on Friday evening, and is the first Bath player to reach that landmark.Plaudits also go to George Ford, who enjoyed a 100% success rate from the kicking tee, landing three penalties and three conversions.Congratulations are also due to Charlie Sharples, who marked his 200th competitive appearance for Gloucester with his 75th try. It wasn’t enough to see his side to a much-needed win though, as they let go a 27-14 lead at Sandy Park to finish up with a 27-27 draw v Exeter.Paul James also reached the 200-appearance landmark this weekend, when he came off the bench for the Ospreys. Outstanding stand-offJason Tovey pulled all the strings for Edinburgh in their 45-10 Guinness Pro12 win over Benetton Treviso with some excellent creative play. The stand-off threw a superb miss-pass to set up Tom Brown for his first try of the night and the wing was the beneficiary again when he latched on to a lovely cross kick from the inspired Tovey. The No 10 also converted five tries out of seven as Edinburgh romped to a welcome win.Damien Hoyland scored two tries and back row Magnus Bradbury raced in from 60 metres out for one. By George: Jamie George gets set to touch down his second try. (Photo: Getty Images)Double for GeorgeJamie George grabbed the headlines for Saracens, coming off the bench to score two tries in the last 12 minutes and take his team from 16-14 up to a comfortable 30-14 Premiership win. The second of his two tries earned a bonus point for Saracens but his 30-minute effort wasn’t enough to earn him the Man of the Match award, as Billy Vunipola carried that off after a typical all-action performance. All smiles: Cian Kelleher and Connacht had plenty to be happy about. (Photo: Inpho)King CianConnacht became the first team to beat Ulster this season in the Guinness Pro12 and wing Cian Kelleher certainly played his part in the 30-25 triumph.He scored two of Connacht’s four tries, made 17 carries with the ball in hand, resulting in a total metres-gained of 114, and even managed to win a turnover.Jack Carty contributed 15 points to the Connacht cause, crossing the line after three minutes to get his team off on the right foot and then adding two conversions and two penalties. Good EvansReplacement scrum-half Jonathan Evans scored a crucial try for the Scarlets to set them up for their 31-27 Pro12 win over the Dragons.Having been 20-7 down, the Scarlets were still trailing 20-17 in the 59th minute when Evans saw the blindside of a ruck on the 22 wasn’t guarded. He picked up and darted round the ruck, then sprinted down the wing to score.Five minutes later the dancing feet of Scott Williams set up a second try for wing Steff Evans – who had started the game with a terrific try run in from halfway – and the Scarlets held on for the win. Try to treasureTelusa Veainu scored arguably the best individual try of the weekend and helped Leicester Tigers on their way to a 34-13 Premiership win over Sale Sharks.Scrum-half Jono Kitto fielded a clearance kick from Worcester just inside his own half, passed inside to Veainu and the full-back set off on a miraculous, weaving run, jinking his way around or bouncing off five defenders and touching down with the roars of an ecstatic Welford Road crowd ringing in his ears. It was a piece of brilliance which will live long in the memory. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The SinnersSlack JackBristol went to Kingston Park in desperate need of a win after five straight defeats against some of the Aviva Premiership’s biggest guns, but handed Newcastle Falcons a five-point start thanks to a horrible mistake from Jack Tovey. David Lemi spilled a ball and Tovey picked it up, but then threw a hopeful pass up off the floor in the direction of Will Hurrell only to see Juan Pablo Socino stroll up, catch the ball and sprint in for a fourth-minute try.From there, Newcastle built up a 19-0 lead before Bristol came back after the break to make the final score 19-14.“We gifted them five points and there’s the difference between the two teams,” said Bristol boss Andy Robinson. “That’s the nature of playing in the Premiership – you can’t afford to slip up at any moment.” Oh no: Garry Ringrose takes a moment after his knock-on. (Photo: Inpho)Butter fingersGarry Ringrose has done so much that is so right in a Leinster jersey but he made a howling error during the first half of Saturday’s Pro12 match against Munster. Johnny Sexton slotted a lovely kick through the Munster defence and all Ringrose needed to do was gather it and stride over the line. With Leinster trailing 7-6 at the time, a try would have been useful, but Ringrose took his eye off the ball just as it bounced up towards his hands and knocked it on.Fortunately for Ringrose, Leinster still went on to win 25-14 so it didn’t prove to be a costly error. Central figureGlasgow Warriors were made to work hard for their 33-28 away win at Zebre and outside centre Nick Grigg played a key role, having a hand in three of their four tries.First, a 90 metre break from his own 22 set up a score for Fraser Brown, which helped give the Warriors an 18-11 lead at half-time. Five minutes after the break Grigg’s offload created a try for Sean Lamont – the wing’s second of the game – and then the outside centre stretched the Zebre defence to breaking point with 51 minutes on the clock to allow Leonardo Sarto to score a try against his old club. Unhappy ending: Johnny Leota (centre) finished the match in the sin-bin. (Photo: Getty Images)Judo JohnnyJohnny Leota experienced a moment of madness close to the end of Sale Sharks’ 30-3 loss at Bath, when he grabbed hold of Aled Brew off the ball and threw him to the floor, judo style, and was sin-binned as a result. In a week when judo and rugby haven’t exactly enjoyed a happy marriage, it was a silly thing to do.

Headlining 50th annual Martin Luther King breakfast, Presiding Bishop decries…

first_img Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Collierville, TN Submit a Press Release Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Tags Presiding Bishop Michael Curry delivers the keynote address at the 50th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Breakfast in Boston, Massachusetts, on Jan. 20, 2020. Photo: Tracy Sukraw/Diocese of Massachusetts[Episcopal News Service – Boston] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s keynote address at the 50th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Breakfast on Jan. 20 was full of Scriptural interpretation, moral lessons and charismatic preaching reminiscent of King himself.Several times, however, he jokingly reminded the audience of around 1,500 that he had been asked to give a keynote address, not a sermon.“But imagine that it was a sermon,” he told the laughing audience before diving back into a reflection on the prophet Jeremiah.Curry’s fiery speech, which drew parallels between the political injustices of Jeremiah’s age and present-day America, was the highlight of the event that traditionally draws appearances from Boston’s most influential leaders. The breakfast was founded by St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church – a largely African American parish in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood that features a stained-glass depiction of King – and Union United Methodist Church. The event’s proceeds benefit both churches’ community programs and services. This year, tickets for the breakfast – held at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center – were sold out for the first time in about 30 years, organizers said.The morning began with a prayer offered by Massachusetts Bishop Suffragan Gayle Harris.Massachusetts Bishop Suffragan Gayle Harris gives the opening prayer at the 50th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Breakfast in Boston on Jan. 20, 2020. Photo: Tracy Sukraw/Diocese of Massachusetts“We gather in what seems to be a weary year, with many silent tears from violence and war,” Harris said. “It seems at times the truth and our principles are under a guillotine of political expediency.”Harris encouraged the audience to draw strength from King’s wisdom and tenacity in dark times.“He reminded us that we cannot and must not remain in the valley of despair, hopelessness and helplessness,” she said.After a performance from a gospel choir that had the audience clapping and singing along, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, U.S. Sen. Ed Markey, U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh gathered on stage for a candid discussion about past and present manifestations of racial injustice in the state and the rest of the country. The consensus that emerged among the four politicians of different races and parties was that the specifics and semantics may be different now, but systemic racism persists, echoing the theme of this year’s event: “The Struggle Continues.”“One of the things that frustrates me when we talk about the civil rights movement is that we bookend it as if we’re not still in it. The same is true when we talk about abolition. I’m still an abolitionist because my people still are not free,” Pressley – who is black – said to cheers from the audience.“We can’t have a just society until we admit that we do not have a just society,” Markey said, calling for an end to private prisons and the mass incarceration of people of color. “And we have to have a conversation about reparation. … The truth is that in many ways, we have just substituted the cells of slave ships for the cells of prisons.”When Curry took the stage to deliver his speech, he applauded the elected officials’ willingness to speak frankly about such difficult topics.“It was wonderful to hear political leaders speak with a moral voice,” he said.The central motif of Curry’s keynote address came from Jeremiah 17:8: a sturdy tree that endures drought by spreading its roots toward a stream. He recalled a tree he saw during a pilgrimage to Ghana with the descendants of American slaves and slave owners – a massive tree that, he was told, had stood for centuries. A witness to years of mass enslavement and colonialism, the tree continued to thrive.“The tree, as large as it was above, was bigger below! It had a complex root system, a root system that spread out all over the land, a root system that was wide and inclusive,” Curry recalled enthusiastically. “If you want to navigate in moral ambiguity and complexity, when lies are substituted for truth, when misbehavior is exalted as just plain behavior, when people are treated like animals and put down, when mamas are separated from their children at the border of this country – you want to navigate that? You’ve got to be like that tree!”Although he only mentioned President Donald Trump by name once, Curry talked about the actions of kings in the time of Jeremiah and let the audience fill in the blanks.“Caring for those who have need was not their concern. In fact, they played political games on the level of geopolitics. They entered into unwise alliances. They canceled treaties that had long been in place. I’m just giving you a biblical lesson, now,” Curry said to laughter and applause. “They prepared to seal off the borders of Judah. Build imaginary walls. They segregated and separated people by their class and their caste. They separated folks, even in the house of God.”The solution, as it was for Jeremiah and for King, is “a revival of relationships and a revolution of values,” Curry told the audience.“In a country that was bereft of moral decency, a country that had lost its way, a country that abandoned its true roots … in times like that, you must be like the tree.”He ended with a nod to the slogan used by Trump and his supporters, bringing the crowd to its feet for a standing ovation.“When love is behind every law, America will be great!”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Motor City Pride: The fight is not over

first_imgWW photo: Kris HamelThousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people, and their allies, took to the streets June 7 in the annual Motor City Pride parade. Thousands more attended the weekend-long celebration in downtown Detroit.While the parade and festival celebrated the many aspects of LGBTQ pride, community and culture, organizers acknowledged that the fight against discrimination is not over. “The way we put it, ‘Married on Saturday, fired on Monday,’” said Bill Greene, interim executive director of Pride sponsor Equality Michigan. “People are coming out more, getting married. Unfortunately, the state of Michigan lags behind many states in its friendliness to the LGBT community.” Equality Michigan is the statewide LGBTQ civil rights organization that is currently fighting to get LGBTQ protections added to state civil rights laws.The marriage equality fight was in the spotlight this year, particularly in Michigan, with a Supreme Court ruling expected by the end of this month on whether marriage bans in Michigan and three other states are unconstitutional. A positive ruling will make same-sex marriage legal in the 13 states where bans still remain in place. Festival goers cheered April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse, two Detroit-area nurses and plaintiffs in the Michigan marriage case, as they strolled the grounds with their four adopted children.Members of the Moratorium Now! Coalition to Stop Foreclosures, Evictions and Utility Shutoffs, Workers World Party and the revolutionary youth group Fight Imperialism, Stand Together marched together with signs supporting the right to marry and declaring that “Black + Trans Lives Matter.” Their booth attracted a steady stream of visitors interested in fighting capitalism.Other progressive forces that marched and tabled include Metro AFL-CIO, the union UNITE HERE, and the Restaurant Opportunities Center. A stronger presence, however, from organized labor would strengthen the fight for equality in this state, where a reactionary Legislature continues to pass bills attacking the LGBTQ community. The United Auto Workers, for example, has not had a contingent, and this in the city where the union was founded 80 years ago.Pride, which celebrates the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion, has become commercialized over the years. The grand marshall for this year’s parade was not even a person but a Fiat Chrysler Automobiles vehicle, acknowledging FCA’s sponsorship.The Human Rights Campaign gives FCA a rating of 100 percent on its scorecard of LGBTQ issues. This writer, a 28-year Chrysler UAW worker, disagrees, as the company does not provide family leave for same-sex partners where marriage is not recognized and does not have contract or policy language to cover anti-transgender discrimination.Nevertheless, the parade was a strong statement of the willingness of the LGBTQ community to keep up the fight for full equality.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
