Although Hong Kong has one of the smallest horse populations in the world, it has positioned itself as global leader in thoroughbred racing. Begun in 1988, the Hong Kong Cup is a Group 1 flat horse race in Hong Kong which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. For this year’s racing, 50 horses are selected, with local and international horse divided evenly, including nine Japan-based horses, eight horses with English connections, four from Ireland, two from France, and one each from Australia and Singapore.

Glorious Forever, the Archipenko full-siblings finished well down the field in the G2 Jockey Club Cup over the Sha Tin 2000 meters on 18th November prior to the barrier draw for the G1 Longines Hong Kong Cup. Its jockey, Silvestre de Sousa, dominated the race from start to finish with the four-year-old gelding, and completed the 2,000-metre course in just over two minutes and one second. The result came with French rider Christophe Lemaire finished second on Deirdre and Australian jockey Zac Purton finished third on Time Warp. This marked the first time Hong Kong-trained horses took the crown in all four of the Longines races,

“It is incredible.!” Michael Kwan, the owner of Glorious Forever said, “He has shown everyone how brutally good he can be. It is not just a race. It is a spirit, the spirit of Hong Kong and the spirit of horse lovers. You will never know until you are one of the crowd shouting for the race.”

Off the hook: California king salmon rebounds after drought

Aug 22, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO — California fishermen are reporting one of the best salmon fishing seasons in years, thanks to heavy rain and snow that ended the state's historic drought. It's a sharp reversal for chinook salmon, also known as king salmon. The iconic fish helps sustain many Pacific Coast fishing communities. A marine scientist with California's fish and wildlife agency says commercial catches have so far surpassed official preseason forecasts by roughly 50%. The salmon rebound comes after three years of extremely low catches resulting from poor ocean conditions and California's five-year drought. This year's adult salmon are the first class...

Detectives: 1994 technology slowed search for serial killer

Aug 22, 2019

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Detectives who investigated a string of 1994 slayings that Gary Ray Bowles confessed to committing say he probably would have been caught sooner if they had had today's technology. Bowles is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection Thursday for the murder of Walter Hinton in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Prosecutors say Hinton was Bowles' sixth and final known victim. Investigators suspected Bowles almost immediately after the first of the killings: He left a parole document with his name on it in the victim's Daytona Beach home. He also was caught on an ATM camera trying to withdraw...

Putin says mysterious explosion posed no radiation threat

Aug 22, 2019

HELSINKI — Russian President Vladimir Putin insisted Wednesday that a recent deadly explosion at a military testing site in northwestern Russia hasn't posed any radiation threat, but he remained coy about the circumstances of the mysterious incident. Speaking after talks in Helsinki with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto, Putin emphasized that neighboring nations haven't recorded any spike in radioactivity. "These are the objective data," he said. "These things can be tracked." The Aug. 8 incident at the Russian navy's range in Nyonoksa on the White Sea killed two servicemen and five nuclear engineers. It was followed by a brief rise in...

HARTFORD, Conn. — A Yale University psychiatry professor sexually assaulted five students at a research facility on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts and committed sexual misconduct against at least eight others, according to a former federal prosecutor's report released Tuesday.

Messages seeking comment were left with Redmond and his lawyer Tuesday. No criminal charges have been filed. Daly...

Major US stock indexes finish lower, snapping a 3-day rally

Aug 22, 2019

Stocks fell broadly on Wall Street Tuesday after another slide in bond yields and a mixed batch of corporate earnings weighed on the market. The selling pulled every major sector lower, snapping a three-day winning streak for the S&P 500. Financial sector stocks bore the brunt of the decline as investors reacted to lower yields. Technology stocks, which like banks have tended to lead the market's gains recently, gave up an early gain. Home Depot climbed after the home improvement retailer reported earnings that topped Wall Street's forecasts. But two other big retailers didn't fare as well. Investors sent Kohl's...
