Tennis Ja calls extraordinary general meeting

first_imgTennis Jamaica has called an extraordinary general meeting for Thursday, March, 3 at 5:30 p.m. to review resolutions regarding the election of officers and directors and approve its elections set to take place on Tuesday, April 12.In a release yesterday, Tennis Jamaica said both meetings will be held at the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA), 6 Cunningham Avenue, Kingston 6, and will be administered by the JOA to ensure the integrity of the process and in the interest of accountability and transparency.According to Tennis Jamaica “a code of honour that has been respected by successive generations of leaders … (and) which has served the association well up to now needs to be strengthened in light of weaknesses that were exploited by some unscrupulous members that led to the aborting of the last elections held on November 19, 2015.”It said at that election there were 77 eligible voters qualified to vote for either of the two candidates for president, John Bailey, the incumbent, and John Azar, the challenger. At the end of the election process, Bailey polled 43 votes and Azar, 40, six more than the total number of persons eligible to vote.Tennis Jamaica said a review of the process has shown that unidentified individuals were able to take advantage of the less-than-rigorous electoral process that has relied on the integrity of its members, in order to ‘multiple-vote’.It is impossible to identify the offending members or the ‘bad ballots’, the release added.last_img read more

Timeforarms wins Caymanas feature

first_img READY TO RUMBLE The seven-year-old horse, TIMEFORARMS, won the annual renewal of the Ren Gonzalves Memorial Cup overnight allowance feature over 2000 metres in decisive fashion at Caymanas Park yesterday. Installed a 2-1 second favourite with 3.0kg claiming apprentice Bebeto Harvey riding for trainer Fitzroy Glispie, TIMEFORARMS chased the leader KURI (45-1) from a long way out, engaged her on the inside leaving the half mile and eventually gained the ascendancy approaching the distance. At this stage, the 7-5 favourite ORIGINAL TRAIN moved into contention three-wide in mid-stretch, but TIMEFORARMS responded to a bustling ride from the apprentice to win by two and three-quarter lengths. Glispie who co-owns TIMEFORARMS with Gary G. Lee-Sin, said the bay horse by Twilight Time – Armsofanangel needed the run when finishing seventh to PUDDY POOH in a fast-run 1600 metres race on April 23 and he was confident of winning this time. “That was his first race since the rich Diamond Mile on December 5, and he was programmed to lift this trophy today. He has kept better company for most of last year and, now running from the convenient mark of 51.5kg by virtue of the apprentice claim, he was ready to rumble, especially going two turns,” said the former jockey. TIMEFORARMS has now won 11 races from 55 starts lifetime with total stakes of $6.7 million. Harvey and fellow apprentice Hakeem Pottinger shared the honours with two winners each on the 10-race programme. In addition to TIMEFORARMS, Harvey booted home 6-5 favourite PRINCE O’SHAUN for veteran trainer Noel Freeman in the fourth race over 1500 metres for $180,000 claimers. Pottinger, son of ex-jockey Mikey Pottinger, scored a shock win aboard the 99-1 outsider DIRECTOR DALEY for owner-trainer Lorenzo Robinson in the eighth race over 1300 metres for maiden three-year-old, the bay colt getting up in the nick of time to beat 1-1 favourite OK DUDE and MR LYNDHURST (6-1) in a blanket finish. Pottinger closed out his double with a narrow win aboard 6-1 shot TWO STEPS UP in the last race.last_img read more
