KOBE’S BACK, LORD NELSON & SUBTLE INDIAN HEAD POWERFUL LINEUP IN SATURDAY’S GRADE I, $300,000 TRIPLE BEND STAKES AT SEVEN PANELS

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (June 22, 2016)–A two-time graded stakes winner at Santa Anita this past winter, slow starting Kobe’s Back, along with sharp recent allowance winner Lord Nelson, and multiple stakes winner Subtle Indian, head a powerful field of eight sprinters in Saturday’s Grade I, $300,000 Triple Bend Stakes at seven furlongs.First run as the Lakes and Flowers Handicap at Hollywood Park in 1952, the Triple Bend, named for owner Frank McMahon’s 1972 Santa Anita Handicap winner, will be contested for the 65th time on Saturday and be run for third consecutive year at Santa Anita. THE GRADE I TRIPLE BEND STAKES IN POST POSITION ORDER WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTS Race 8 (of 9)                                                                                                       Approximate post time 5 p.m. PDT KOBE’S BACK: Notoriously tardy from the gate, he added blinkers three starts back and responded with a couple of impressive Grade II wins. On Feb. 7, he took the six furlong Palos Verdes and on March 12, he annexed the seven furlong San Carlos Stakes. In his most recent start on Kentucky Derby Day, May 7, he was away in customarily slow fashion and rallied well to be third, beaten 1 ¾ lengths, in the Grade II, seven furlong Churchill Downs. With a 10-3-2-2 record at seven furlongs and a 6-3-2-0 mark at Santa Anita, conditions would appear to be to order for the 5-year-old son of Flatter who has Santa Anita’s Grade I Breeders’ Cup Sprint on Nov. 5 at the top of his 2016 agenda. Owned by Lee and Susan Searing’s CRK Stable and trained by Peter Eurton, he’ll be accompanied for the 11th consecutive time by Gary Stevens on Saturday. With an overall record of 19-5-3-3, Kobe’s Back is the leading money earner in the field with earnings of $1,000,250. LORD NELSON: In his first start for B.Wayne Hughes’ Spendthrift Farm, Lord Nelson overcame a six month absence to run perhaps the best race of his career in winning a third condition allowance here on June 3 going six furlongs. Third to last year’s Eclipse Award winning sprinter, Run Happy, two starts back in the Grade I, seven furlong Malibu Stakes Dec. 26, Bob Baffert’s Lord Nelson was a winner at three of the Grade II, seven furlong San Vicente Stakes here on Feb. 1, 2015 and has been no worse than third in three tries at the Triple Bend distance. A 4-year-old Kentucky-bred colt by Pulpit, Lord Nelson earned a career-best 99 Beyer Speed figure in his most recent win and could be the horse to beat on Saturday. Clever Royal–Martin Pedroza–120Kobe’s Back–Gary Stevens–122Cautious Giant–Fernando Perez–120Lord Nelson–Rafael Bejarano–120Ambitious Brew–Kent Desormeaux–120Subtle Indian–Mike Smith–120Home Run Kitten–Joe Talamo–120Coastline–Tyler Baze–120First post time on Saturday, Gold Cup at Santa Anita Day, is at 1:30 p.m. Admission gates will open at 11:30 a.m. For scratches, late changes and complete morning line information, please visit santaanita.com. SUBTLE INDIAN: Although he’s the speed of the race, multiple stakes winning Subtle Indian, who shipped west from Oaklawn Park to run a solid second in the Grade II, 6 ½ furlong Kona Gold Stakes here May 21, would appear to be a question mark at seven furlongs, but with “Big Money” Mike Smith taking over for the first time, he merits added respect. Second, beaten a length with regular rider Ramon Vasquez up, he set torrid splits of 21.40, 44.20 and 1:08.60 in the Kona Gold and went under by a length at the hands of multiple stakes winner Wild Dude. Trained by Robertino Diodoro, it’ll be up to Smith to ration his considerable early zip. Owned by Mercedes Stables, LLC, 4-year-old gelding Subtle Indian, who has never run as far as seven furlongs, has seven wins from 10 starts and has earnings of $540,300.

SA’s hydro power potential

first_img23 July 2004Energy experts say South Africa has moderate hydroelectric potential, and that the establishment of small hydroelectric projects around the country could help provide a sustainable future energy supply.The US department of energy estimates that there are 6 000 to 8 000 potential sites in South Africa suitable for small hydro-utilisation below 100 megawatts, with the provinces of KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape offering the best prospects.The largest hydroelectric power plant in South Africa is the 1 000 megawatt Drakensberg Pumped-Storage Facility, part of a larger scheme of water management that brings water from the Tugela River into the Vaal watershed. The country’s second-largest plant is situated on the Palmiet River outside Cape Town.South Africa’s electricity parastatal, Eskom, currently buys power from Mozambique’s Cahora Basa plant, jointly owned by the Mozambican and Portuguese governments and located in Mozambique’s western Tete province.Eskom is the Cahora Basa’s biggest customer. Power bought from Cahora Basa supplements Eskom’s largely coal-driven electricity supply, which is resold to numerous countries across the African contintent.Not flowing so smoothlyDelivering her department’s budget speech in June, Minerals and Energy Minister Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka told Parliament that the government would continue to explore the benefits of hydroelectric power – despite international warnings about its downside.Mlambo-Ngcuka singled out central Africa’s Inga project, on the Congo River in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The project is expected to produce 40 000 megawatts once fully operational. Eskom is a major investor in the project.According to Business Day, another hydroelectric project is being planned for Uganda, where a proposed US$580-million dam on the Nile could eventually generate 200 megawatts of power for the region.Industrialised countriess suggested at a recent conference in Germany that hydroelectric power was not a renewable energy source under the guidelines agreed at the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development held in Johannesburg.Mlambo-Ngcuka argued, however, that the potential environmental challenges facing hydro-electric power were being “over-problematised”, and that Africans could not afford to alienate any source of energy, as this would retard development and industrialisation on the continent.“The view from Africa is that if Africa is going to have security and access to energy, we cannot alienate any source of energy, otherwise we might as well close shop on development and industrialisation of any sort”, Mlambo-Ngcuka told Parliament.She said environmental issues would be closely scrutinised before a decision was reached on South Africa’s nuclear or hydroelectric power options.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more
