Prognosis guarded for sick Abbey

first_img The six-year-old had a bad bout of colic on Thursday for which he has had to have emergency surgery. Coolmore tweeted: “Unfortunately St Nicholas Abbey had a major setback in his recovery during the night, suffering from a bad colic. He underwent emergency colic surgery at Fethard Equine Hospital this morning and the prognosis is very guarded at the moment.” St Nicholas Abbey has suffered a serious setback in his recovery from a major leg operation. Press Associationcenter_img On Wednesday, St Nicholas Abbey had complex surgery on a career-ending injury to a pastern. The six-times Group One winner fractured a leg on the gallops at Aidan O’Brien’s Ballydoyle stables on Tuesday morning in preparation for Saturday’s King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot. A son of champion sire Montjeu, St Nicholas Abbey was champion two-year-old in 2009 when he crowned his season with a blistering display in the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster. He was a red-hot favourite for the 2000 Guineas the following year, but could only finish sixth behind Makfi, and was not seen again until the following April when he was beaten at the Curragh. The six-year-old returned to something like his juvenile form when an easy scorer of the Ormonde Stakes at Chester and went on to further Group One glory in the Coronation Cup at Epsom, a race he went on to win two more times. Arguably his two greatest successes came on the world stage, however. He won the Breeders’ Cup Turf in 2011, a victory which made his jockey Joseph O’Brien the youngest winner in Breeders’ Cup history, and as recently as March he landed the Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan. St Nicholas Abbey amassed close to £5million in prize-money, having won nine of his 21 races. last_img read more

African Games: GAA lauds Athletes for impressive showing

first_imgThe Ghana Athletics Association (GAA) has lauded athletes and coaches for their impressive showing at this year’s African Games in Rabat, Morocco.Ghana finished the Games with 13 medals and placed 15th on the medal table. Two gold medals, two silver medals and 9 bronze medals. The highlight of Team Ghana’s participation was the men 4×100 relay team who won the second Gold medal.The entire team have been congratulated by the GAA in the following statement.The Ghana Athletics Association (GAA) congratulates Ghana’s athletes and coaches for the gallant display that saw Team Ghana register among the medal-winning nations at the 2019 African Games. It took so much effort, both before and during the Games, and despite limited resources and the unbelievable stress from various arenas that GAA and the athletes were under in the very recent past. First and foremost, it is the athletes who competed in Rabat who deserve commendation for their performance and general composure even in the Games Village.  Sincere thanks also go to the leadership of our Athlete Commissions (Ghana- and Foreign-based) for their tireless efforts in working with GAA to ensure readiness and a relatively successful outcome at the Games.  As various parties have come out to claim credit for the athletes’ performance, it is imperative to mention that the athletes have been part of the GAA’s grassroots athletics development program that took root almost a decade ago; literally, all of the athletes have participated in local and international meets organized or facilitated by the GAA over the past decade. For this reason, we must also express our gratitude to all those who have supported GAA over the last decade as we have evolved the system that has, over the years, laid the ground for what we saw in Rabat; but for visa issues and injuries, we should not have been surprised to see a few more golden medals. In building the structure, we must thank our members across the regions and in the Ghana Education Service (GES), Ghana University Sports Association (GUSA), and the Ministry of Youth and Sports (and particularly the Office of the Minister). Special mention must be extended to the coaches and technical departments of the various schools, as well as to the non-affiliated, personal coaches who toil day and night to train the athletes. The financial support for the system has primarily come from a number of corporate sponsors, including the Maria Tsakos Foundation, EventPR, rlg, Sea and Shore, Interplast Ghana, Africanus.net, Cocoa from Ghana, Bank of Ghana, Ghana Commercial Bank, and Just Because Fitness, as well as a host of private individuals. We salute them all and hope that they see these victories as theirs. For the 2019 African Games, we are also grateful to the team’s coaches who were in Rabat, and Team Athletics’ leader at the Games, Mr. Bawah Fuseini, who also doubles as the Chief Executive Officer (Secretary-General) for both the GAA and the Confederation of African Athletics Association (CAA) Zone II board. As our attention shifts to the 2019 World Championships where both our men’s and women’s relay teams register in the Top-16 in the World, but where we also have individual automatic qualifiers like Joseph Paul Amoah, Nadia Eke, and Josephine Anokye, as well as five others who might get the nod when the qualification deadline expires next week, we must specifically acknowledge the $3,430 we received from Just Because Fitness (JBF) and $4,913 advanced from an unnamed individual to enable the women’s team attend the Doha qualifiers at the IAAF World Relays in Japan. GAA Communications.last_img read more
