She had dreams of also competing at the Olympics. This bursary will go towards training and competition costs leading up to the 2020 Olympics. I am very grateful to be back in the competition ring with All In during these unprecedented times.”As the successful candidate for 2021, Fraser-Beaulieu will be an ambassador for the Brosda Olympic Bursary, promoting the Olympic values of excellence, teamwork, leadership and fair play, and sharing her stories and experiences through public speaking engagements and on social media.About the Élisabeth Brosda Memorial FundOn behalf of the Brosda family, EC is honoured to facilitate support for the Élisabeth Brosda Memorial Fund through the Horsepower Foundation – a fundraising program created by EC, in partnership with the Canadian Olympic Foundation, to inspire and support Canadians to embrace lifelong participation in equestrian activities.As a lasting legacy in memory of Élisabeth Brosda, funds donated to the Élisabeth Brosda Memorial Fund are directed specifically to the annual Brosda Olympic Bursary.

first_img 36SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr As inbound marketers, we use blogs, social media, emails, great content and SEO to attract, convert, close and delight.Many traditional sales and marketing staff members are skeptical that inbound marketing for credit unions is an effective way to retain and grow membership and cross sell new products and services. But for our clients we’ve seen that those who incorporate inbound techniques into their marketing strategies are getting some great results!The way consumers seek out information has changed significantly, and your marketing efforts need to change as well. People no longer get in their car and drive to branches to find out more information about loans or CD interest rates, they turn to the internet for their initial research.Having a big beautiful sign outside of your perfectly placed credit union branch is not the only way to attract potential new members, you need an online presence that captures leads before they even leave their house. continue reading »last_img read more

Trained by Phil D’Amato, Coastline covered 6 ½ furlongs down Santa Anita’s hillside turf course in 1:12.68.“It was a perfect trip today,” said Baze. “He jumped a little bit when we crossed the dirt (at the top of the stretch) but I rode him with a lot of confidence.”Second, beaten a neck in the Grade III Daytona Stakes down the hill on Dec. 26, Coastline, a      5-year-old Kentucky-bred horse by Speightstown, was off at 5-1 in a field of 10 older horses and paid $12.20, $5.20 and $3.80.“It looked like it was going to be close, but this horse is such a fighter,” said D’Amato. “Once he got his head in there, he just inched away and gave a good performance…I think he’ll go two turns. We’ll take a look, see what’s out there and go from there.”Owned by Agave Racing Stable and Jaam Racing, Inc., Coastline, who notched his first win from two tries over the course, improved his overall mark to 19-5-3-3. With the winner’s share of $46,800, he increased his earnings to $336,806.Ridden by Edwin Maldonado, Rocket Heat was off as the 5-2 favorite and paid $3.80 and $3.20.“That’s his game, you gotta let him roll,” said Maldonado, who, with the temporary inner rail set at 30 feet, opened up by 3 ½ lengths after the first half mile. “I tried to get him to relax without choking him down.

UPSTART BOLO FIRES FRESH & DEFEATS FAVORED OBVIOUSLY BY A NECK IN GRADE II, $200,000 ARCADIA STAKES; PRAT & GAINES TEAM FOR MILE TURF WIN IN 1:33.09

first_imgBOLO TO CONSIDER SURFACE SWITCH TO $1 MILLION SANTA ANITA HANDICAP ON MARCH 12 ARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 13, 2016)–A Kentucky Derby hopeful a year ago, 4-year-old Bolo proved himself a nationally prominent turf horse Saturday at Santa Anita, as he ran down heavily favored Obviously late to take the Grade II, $200,000 Arcadia Stakes by a neck under Flavien Prat. Trained by Carla Gaines and idle since July 4, Bolo negotiated one mile on turf in 1:33.09 and is now undefeated in three tries over the Santa Anita lawn.A measured second, two lengths off the favorite past the half mile pole, Bolo got outside pressure from eventual third place finisher Om going to the far turn, shook him off turning for home and gradually wore down Obviously to win going away at the wire.“I couldn’t watch at the end,” said Santa Anita Chairman Keith Brackpool, on behalf of the ownership of Golden Pegasus Racing, Inc., and Earle I. Mack, LLC. “I couldn’t watch, but it was unbelievable. Carla did just an incredible job, incredible. Her patience over a seven month period drives me crazy, but then in one day, it all comes together.”Off at 7-1 in a field of five older horses, Bolo paid $17.40, $7.20 and $3.00. A Kentucky-bred colt by Temple City, he notched his fourth win from nine starts and with the winner’s share of $120,000, increased his earnings to $408,700.“You have to be closer on the turf the way it’s playing, so it worked out well,” said Prat, who rode Bolo for the first time. “I knew the pace was already fast (set by Obviously; 22.70, 45.67, 1:09.13 and 1:20.99) but I had to get out and go (around the far turn) because Obviously was still in front of me. When I came up next to Obviously, he picked it back up…but I knew Bolo can get the distance and in the end, Obviously came back to us.”Although all four of his career wins have come on turf, Brackpool left the door open for a possible return to dirt in the mile and a quarter $1 million Santa Anita Handicap on March 12.“It seems like every other horse I hear about is being considered for Dubai,” he said. “So we’ve got lots of options.”As for Gaines, she was obviously pleased with the way Bolo came back running off the bench.“The horse had a terrific trip,” she said. “All I told Flavien was to let him break and find his place in the race. I felt he’d be sitting right behind the leaders and he would still have a kick home. That’s exactly what happened. I’m just so thrilled…Did I think he was going to get there? I’m not sure. I was screaming very loud.”Irish-bred Obviously, one of America’s best turf milers dating back to 2012, was cutting back in distance from a mile and one eighth and appeared to have things his own way on the lead.“He settled great and he ran really well,” said Mike Smith, who was aboard the 8-year-old for the first time in the Arcadia. “They went in (one) thirty three to beat us. That’s pretty impressive. I wouldn’t say the this track favors speed, but…He just got run down today.”Off at 4-5, Obviously paid $3.00 and $2.10.Om, who came off a rousing win here in the Grade II Mathis Brother Mile (turf) on Dec. 26, sat a comfortable third early with Gary Stevens and went after the top two going to the far turn, but proved third best. The second choice at 8-5, he paid $2.10 to show.last_img read more
