Burger King for Superstakes

first_img SUPERSTAKES PURSE The Superstakes offers a total purse of $4.5 million, inclusive of $1 million from Burger King. According to CTL’s racing secretary Denzil Miller Jr, the other major races on the 12-race programme should be closely contested. These include the annual renewal of the Glen Mills Caribbean Sprint over 1200 metres in honour of Jamaica’s own celebrated track and field coach Glen Mills, himself a horse racing enthusiast. “This offers a total purse of $1.75 million, inclusive of $400,000 from Burger. The field should include last year’s winner, Potcheen, Crucial Appeal, Traditional Prince, Poker Star, Edison, Talented Tony K, and the improving three-year-old colt Buzz Nightmare,” Miller said. He added: “The day’s showpiece event, Superstakes 37, should be an intriguing contest, with reigning ‘Horse of the Year’ Typewriter seeking his third consecutive win for trainer Spencer Chung. A stiff challenge is expected from the 2013 derby and St Leger winner and likely favourite Perfect Neighbour, and the latter could give 14-time champion trainer Wayne DaCosta his first Superstakes win.” Also speaking were CTL’s chairman, Christopher Brown, who thanked noted racehorse owner and breeder Lake for the partnership with CTL, and Sabrena McDonald Radcliffe, marketing manager of Burger King, who disclosed that provision had been made to award $100,000 each to the top trainer, jockey, and groom on the day based on points accumulated in the 12 races. The 37th running of the rich and prestigious Superstakes for native-bred three-year-olds and up over 2000 metres will be run at Caymanas Park on Saturday, November 14, with Burger King assuming the role of sponsor, with a purse of $4.5 million. According to Burger King’s CEO, Richard Lake, the fast-food entity has committed itself to a three-year sponsorship deal for not only the Superstakes, but the other major races on ‘Superday’ – the 28th running of the Glen Mills Caribbean Sprint Championship for native bred three-year-olds, the ninth running of the Coca Cola Invitational Mile, and the second running of the Coca Cola Juvenile Sprint for native-bred two-year-olds over 1300 metres. Details of Burger King Superstakes Day, dubbed ‘A Day with the King and his Horses’, were outlined at Thursday’s launch at the Knutsford Court Hotel, New Kingston, by representatives of Burger and Caymanas Track Limited (CTL). A sponsorship cheque for $2.1 million for purses was handed over by Lake.last_img read more

Mapping the Peace River Break with UNBC graduate

first_imgBurkhart can be reached at burkhart@unbc.ca.Burkhart’s research is funded by Mitacs, in collaboration with Yellowstone to Yukon and Landsong Heritage Consulting, and is part of his research towards a Master of Arts in Natural Resources and Environmental Studies. Tim Burkhart has created a digital atlas of the Peace River Break region, the narrowest point of the province’s Rocky Mountain range. The online atlas is said to be designed in its simplest terms while still being able to provide detailed information about the region. Burkhart says in the past, comprehensive maps were held by private or public agencies, which consequently made them difficult to access and sometime required specialized training to understand.“The idea for the Peace River Break Digital Atlas Project is to create a give-and-take relationship with the public,” Burkhart said. “I would like to see people using it for their own specific conservation goals, whether it’s a local group looking to protect a specific wetland or someone who wants to identify hiking trails.”Members of the public can also collaborate with other users through the imbedded communication tools, presenting map users with the opportunity to engage with each other, which Burkhart says is the elements that sets his project apart from traditional maps.- Advertisement -“Maps have an intrinsic power to them because they purport to accurately represent the land,” Burkhart said. “What you put forward with your map has the power and potential to change that landscape.”The online database requires you to create a free account, which can be found here.At the time of publication, the online map has not been made public, which requires you to email Burkhart in order to gain access. However, Burkhart says this glitch should be mitigated within the next 24 hours.Advertisementlast_img read more
