Good win for Azan’s Edison

first_imgThe promising claiming apprentice Bebeto Harvey teamed up with 7-2 chance EDISON to win the highly competitive overnight allowance feature over 1300 metres from the fast-finishing SHINING LIGHT (9-2) at Caymanas Park yesterday.Harvey, who is a past student of Waterford High, had the Richard Azan-trained EDISON handily placed passing the half-mile as the 54-1 outsider BLACK THORN led the 13-horse field, ahead of the chasing RED FLAG (7-1). EDISON was soon sent in chase of BLACK THORN and went by on the outside entering the straight and held on grimly by a neck to thwart a late run from SHINING LIGHT under in-form Aaron Chatrie.Harvey, who was notching his 17th winner since graduating from the Jockeys’ School last September, said EDISON had a perfect trip.”He was well drawn on the outside of the field on a muddy track and was able to avoid traffic,” said the young rider.”When I improved into second three furlongs out, I knew he was ready to run, and in the end, held them at bay for the victory,” he added. A 7-y-o bay gelding by Outrigger-Perfect Ten, EDISON is owned by Elite Bloodstock Limited and bred by Dave Girod and Laurence Heffes.The 6-5 favourite COMMANDING CHIEF, seeking his first win since August 2014, could fare no better than fifth under leading jockey Dane Nelson, who said: “He was never that far off the pace, but took a lot of riding leaving the half-mile and really needed a longer trip and a more relaxed pace.”Trainer Anthony ‘Baba’ NuÒes saddled two winners on the afternoon in COME DANCE WITH ME and the lightly raced 3-y-o colt SOY EL SENOR, both obliging at 2-1.last_img read more

Golden Bears get victory on the run

first_imgThe Bears won 70-51 and will play UCLA, the top seed and defending Pac-10 Tournament champion, today at Staples Center. The Bruins swept the Bears during the regular season, winning 62-46 at Berkeley and 85-75 at Pauley Pavilion. “We’ve played UCLA tough,” Cal coach Ben Braun said. “We had them at their place and gave up the lead. … We’re going to have to play good basketball to beat UCLA. Our team is capable. (UCLA) is solid and they rebound well.” Basketball is a game of runs, but Cal had such a dominating stretch in the first half that no Oregon State run mattered. Cal went on a 34-2 run in the opening game of the Pacific-10 Conference Tournament Wednesday, and it should be no surprise the Beavers couldn’t rally from such an embarrassing stretch. Cal forward Ryan Anderson had 27points and 15 rebounds. He had 16 points in Cal’s pivotal run and made 5of 7 3-pointers and had 20 points (on 7 of 10 shooting) in the first half. He made 6 of 10 from 3-point range. “I have no comment about that scoring run in the first half, other than the fact that it was phenomenal shooting from space and depth that we hadn’t seen before,” Oregon State coach Jay John said. “Kudos to Cal.” Cal (15-16), the No. 8 seed, has struggled with injuries but had 20points from the bench. center_img The Bears don’t even have a full 24hours to prepare for today’s 2:30p.m. game against a rested UCLA team. Cal guard Ayinde Ubaka didn’t seem to mind. “We shot the ball well today,” Ubaka said. “We played great defense. I want to get back on the court as son as possible. I hope it carries over to (today).” Cal was down 13-6 to start Wednesday’s game, then went on that backbreaking run to build a 40-15 lead with about 31/2 minutes left in the first half. Oregon State’s Vojin Svilar then made a shot inside to end the run. Oregon State put together a run inthe second half and pulled to within eight points at 52-44 and had a chance to cut the deficit to five, but AngeloTsagarakis missed an open 3-pointer and Cal pulled away from there. Marcel Jones had 21 points for Oregon State. The Beavers ended the season with a 14-18 record. Also: Shon Tarver – who played at UCLA and is a former assistant coach at Cal State Northridge – was on hand to watch his younger brothers, Oregon State’s Seth and Josh Tarver. Josh Tarver led all Pac-10 freshmen in minutes per game and assists. jill.painter@dailynews.com (818) 713-3615 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Man missing in Iran ID’d as ex-agent for the FBI

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! NEW YORK – An American who disappeared in Iran while on a business trip is a former FBI agent in New York and Florida known as a meticulous investigator and an expert in busting Italian and Russian mobsters. The retired agent was identified as Robert Levinson, 59, of Coral Springs, Fla., a U.S. official familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Tuesday. He was last heard from around March 11 while in a coastal area of southern Iran, where he was working for an independent filmmaker, said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the situation. Levinson was reportedly near or on Kish Island, a resort area in the Persian Gulf. The federal government is seeking information from Iran on Levinson’s whereabouts through diplomatic channels, officials said. The tall, burly Levinson is an expert on organized crime who sometimes worked 20-hour days, his former colleagues recalled. Former FBI Director Louis Freeh said he knows Levinson very well and worked with him at the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan in the late 1970s and at the FBI. “He distinguished himself, particularly in the area of organized crime,” said Freeh, who now runs The Freeh Group legal affairs consulting company. “He is very well-respected and is very well-liked.” Lewis Schiliro, former FBI assistant director in New York, said Levinson is “one of the most meticulous agents I have ever met.” The former agent had such a remarkable memory that he became the go-to guy when FBI colleagues were stumped over identifying a mobster in a shadowy surveillance photograph. “He always knew who it was,” Schiliro said.last_img read more

No bad blood with Norwich over Grabban pursuit, insists Bournemouth boss Howe

first_img1 Eddie Howe Eddie Howe has dismissed suggestions of a rift between Bournemouth and Norwich.Howe’s team travel to Norwich on Saturday for their first Premier League fixture since the conclusion of the summer transfer window, towards the end of which they attempted to sign Norwich’s Lewis Grabban.The Canaries rejected bids from Bournemouth for the striker, but Grabban later walked out of the team hotel before the Capital One Cup victory over Rotherham and was consequently suspended for a breach of discipline.The striker remained at Norwich, and the Cherries instead recruited Glenn Murray from Crystal Palace.Despite the potential disruption caused to one of their rivals, however, and the fact that Saturday’s fixture comes so soon after that particular episode, Howe sees no reason why there should be any antipathy between the two clubs.“I don’t see why we should, to be honest,” said Howe when asked if his team can expect a negative reception at Carrow Road.“Certainly not from our side, and of course we hope from their side. We’re competitors, we’re two teams that were in the same league last year and fought a really good battle to try and get out of the Championship, and both sides were successful. And now we’re going against each other in the Premier League it should be a good match.“They’ve made a decent start [to the season]. It’s always tough when you come up to a new league, to know how you’re going to update to the challenges that you’re faced with. But I think they proved, going to Sunderland and winning, and getting a good draw against Stoke, that they’re going to be competitive this year, I’ve got no doubt about that.“They’ve got a good squad of players and they’re very well managed, that’s obvious, so we’re expecting a tough challenge.“I don’t think it’s right to speculate or to talk about other people’s players.“This game gives us a good marker, to see how much we’ve improved during the summer to now.”last_img read more

Valley eatery has spent 50 years making food, fans

first_imgSHERMAN OAKS – Twenty-two years old, confident and charming, Rafael Vega took his mom’s recipes and a small business loan and opened a restaurant that bore his name. This was 50 years ago today, back when Mexican food didn’t show up on every corner, before the average American knew words like enchilada and margarita. His dad had run a nightclub and he had some formal schooling, but Vega was basically a gutsy kid who lived in Burbank, gambling that people would enjoy the food he ate at home. “My father was behind the bar, my mother was waiting tables and I was at the door,” Vega, now 72, remembered. “We just wanted a little family Mexican restaurant.” And, as it turned out, a lot of people wanted to come to that little family Mexican restaurant called Casa Vega. In 1956, Vega worked as many as 16 hours a day, never really giving it a thought. He learned to work the room, to shake hands and laugh deeply in that way that makes people feel like they’re at home, even in the company of strangers. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2He worked hard, but he was lucky, too. Luck always ran in the family. His uncle Alejandro went to sea as a cook in 1939 out of San Pedro and bought two tickets in the Irish Sweepstakes while on leave in Gibraltar. When he reached port back home, he was a millionaire, and fronted the money to Vega’s dad to start Casa Caliente on Olvera Street. After 18 years, the family closed the joint and went to work for Rafael, a dapper dresser everyone called Ray. He kept working, introducing people to an Americanized version of the food he’d grown up with. Within five years, he’d paid off his loan and made a lot of friends. And important friends, at that. “You know, Cary Grant, back when Dyan Cannon was pregnant, I was working the door,” Vega said. “I said to him, `Mr. Grant, I really appreciate your business, but this is the fifth time this week you’ve been in here.’ He tells me, `I don’t really care for Mexican food, but when she’s eating the food here, Dyan isn’t such a pain in the … neck.”‘ Vega’s got a lot of stories like that, like the time he got drunk with Marlon Brando, or the quiet, polite way Dean Martin would come in to hang out. “Brando got very possessive,” Vega said. “One time, this guy was giving my aunt a hard time at the door. So Brando got up and he told that guy, `You’d better get out of here’ – and he did.” That’s always the way it has been at Casa Vega, where the lights are so low and the drinks so strong, you never really know what famous person is shrouded off in the corner booth. Was that Tom Cruise and Patricia Arquette? Maybe. Brad Pitt? Perhaps. Jessica Simpson? Possibly. More likely, it was someone like Tamara Ortiz. She’s not a celebrity; she’s a title insurer. She and her friend Gayle Slade come so often, they don’t even have to say the restaurant’s whole name anymore – a simple `CV?’ text message from one is enough to bring the other in a hurry. “There’s certain things in life that you can count on and Casa Vega’s one of them,” Ortiz, 41, of Studio City, said. “It’s truly like a vacation in your own hometown. You can be here all day, all afternoon, all night.” “Not that we’ve ever done that!” laughed Slade, a Sherman Oaks Realtor. “It’s like coming home to family here – Tony the bartender, Rosie the waiter, Ray the owner.” To the restaurant’s fans, of which there are plenty, no superlative seems too great. The chicken enchiladas aren’t just good, they’re the best in the Valley. Antonio Navarro doesn’t just make a mean margarita, he’s the best bartender in the world. The food isn’t just tasty, it’s better than you’d find even in Mexico. Vega privately disputes that, but he’d never tell his patrons. “From time to time, we’ve tried things like pozole or menudo, but our clientele doesn’t buy that,” he said. “It isn’t what I like, it’s what the customer likes. We go through 100 cases of tequila a month to make the margaritas. They’re not the way I’d make them, but the customers sure like them that way.” And that’s what has kept him in business all these years – that, and the way he works the crowd. Waggling his lush eyebrows, slapping backs, purring hello in his rich, velvet voice, he hits every table in the room. Even when the wait for a table is stretched out past an hour and everyone’s packed in, Vega makes sure they don’t really mind. When the tequila is flowing and the chips come basket by basket, reality loses its hard edge and everyone seems to laugh. “It doesn’t matter what time of day it is, it’s always the same time in Casa Vega,” said Leslie Gerard, a 42-year-old personal manager who grew up eating at the place and still drives from Manhattan Beach at least once a month. “As soon as someone says Casa Vega, I’m there.” All this has made Vega a wealthy, respected man. He’s sat on corporate boards, gotten his picture taken with President Nixon, served as the honorary consul general of Mexico. And he has given back, employing workers for decades and establishing leadership programs to encourage young Latinos to work and go to college. He’s at an age and comfort level where many people would retire and relax, but Vega still checks in five days a week and plays an active role in the business. When his daughter Christina returns from maternity leave, he’ll hand some things over to her. But he never plans to stop working the room, just like he did when he was 22 and dreaming. “People come up and say, `Thanks for being here,”‘ he said. “But it’s the other way around. I should be thanking them.” brent.hopkins@dailynews.com (818) 713-3738160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Kennedy dominates in victory

first_imgResurgent Kennedy High of Granada Hills had it all working Friday night – ball-control offense, smothering defense, commanding field position. The only thing lacking in the visiting Cougars’ 23-0 win over community rival Granada Hills was a final score indicative of the decisiveness of the nonleague victory in the inaugural game on the Highlanders’ new all-weather field. Undefeated Kennedy had four apparent touchdowns nullified by penalties and lost what seemed to be another one thanks to a great hustle play by Granada Hills defender Josh Streid, who never quit in chasing Kennedy’s Matt Gentile on a breakaway 40-yard run in the final minutes and came up with a fumble-forcing tackle as Gentile was on the verge of crossing the goal line. But other than that, it was mostly Kennedy (5-0) as the Cougars got 100-yard rushing efforts from Gentile (114) and Chris Gadalla (103), another 95 yards passing – including three touchdown throws – from Kenny Everett, and defense that never gave the Highlanders (2-3) a chance. The result was a postgame trophy presentation by some happy Cougars to their departing coach Bob Francola, who is ending his 20-year run at Kennedy this season and happily accepted the Granada Hills Chamber of Commerce Trophy emblematic of victory in this storied rivalry. “It’s had some huge fingerprints on it,” Francola said. “John Elway, Tom Ramsey … the kids understand the magnitude of getting this thing back for us. We haven’t had it for four years.” Invectus Igwe got the Cougars started with a 29-yard first-quarter field goal after penalties canceled apparent touchdowns by Gadalla (8-yard run) and Diego Contreras (26-yard pass from Everett) and a leaping end-zone catch by Lucas Williams (2-yard pass from Everett) was ruled out of bounds. Everett hooked up with Justin Reeves for a 3-yard scoring pass just before halftime and Everett had scoring passes to Contreras (16 yards) and Jaime Perez (22 yards) in the second half, when Gadalla had a 1-yard touchdown run called back by penalty. “Run, run, run,” Gadalla said. “Run behind the offensive line and try to set up the pass and see what we can do.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “They’re a really good team,” Streid said of the Cougars, who outgained Granada Hills 429-153. “They really stepped up and they deserve this trophy this year.
