Grand National falls victim to coronavirus outbreak AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The Jockey Club, the governing body of horse racing in the UK, has announced that the 2020 edition of showpiece event the Grand National Festival will not take place as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. 17th March 2020 | By contenteditor Regions: UK & Ireland Horse racing Topics: Sports betting Horse racing Tags: Race Track and Racino Email Address The Jockey Club, the governing body of horse racing in the UK, has announced that the 2020 edition of showpiece event the Grand National Festival will not take place as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.The Grand National Festival had been due to run at Aintree Racecourse from 2-4 April, culminating in the race on 4 April, but the Jockey Club made the decision to cancel in response to new government public health guidance regarding novel coronavirus.The government yesterday (16 March) urged people to avoid social contact and stop all non-essential travel, and also said that the emergency services would be withdrawn from supporting mass gatherings, including sports events, from 17 March.As such, the Jockey Club decided that it would no longer be appropriate to stage the event.Jockey Club Racecourses, the commercial division of the Jockey Club that runs Aintree and several of the UK’s major racecourses, had been assessing the feasibility of running the event behind closed doors. However, given the latest government advice, it was decided that this was no longer a viable consideration.“The Grand National Festival was just three weeks away and it’s very clear to us it will not be possible for the event to take place; public health must come first,” Jockey Club senior steward Sandy Dudgeon said.“We were working on a plan to stage the Grand National behind closed doors given its importance to the racing industry and beyond, but following the new government measures confirmed this evening to help to tackle the coronavirus outbreak, this is not a viable option.“I know this is hugely disappointing news for the many people who work in our sport and the many millions who were looking forward to this year’s event, but very sadly these are exceptional times and this is the responsible thing to do.”The decision comes after the British Horseracing Association (BHA) yesterday also announced that scheduled racing events would continue to take place, albeit without spectators and with restrictions on the number of attendees, as a result of the novel coronavirus pandemic.The temporary measures, agreed by the BHA, the Racecourse Association and the Horsemen’s Group, will come into effect from today and apply to all races in England, Wales and Scotland.

If I have to tell him something, I would say, ‘Look, treat this like a Test match. Because even in the T20 format, you’ve been able to pick wickets because the batters have not read what you’ve done with your wrist. And you do that, back yourself, have an attacking field, and challenge batters to hit over mid-on and mid-off,’” Tendulkar said on his commentary debut on Star Sports.Also Read: World Cup 2019 LIVE: Tendulkar to debut in new avatarTendulkar wants Rashid to challenge batsmen with a deep mid-wicket fielder.“Of course, deep mid-wicket has to be there in today’s format. But I would say challenge the batters and you won’t disappoint the Afghanistan fans.”For Tendulkar, Warner’s peak fitness during IPL was key to his stellar show.“I saw him (Warner) in the IPL and he made a huge statement there. He looked hungry, determined, focussed and fitter. Warner was anyway fit, but he looked unbelievably fit (in the IPL). In extreme conditions, he pushed himself and ran hard. He looks determined so I think he’s the batter to watch out for,” he said.Archer’s ability to bowl brilliant deliveries in crunch situations has impressed the batting maestro.“I am looking forward to Jofra Archer bowling for England because I know, in crunch moments, England are always going to look at Jofra Archer to bowl those tight overs.

A Salford-based company using telesales and personal collectors to raise money for charity has been wound-up by the Insolvency Service after it discovered that only three per cent of money raised was paid to charities.Changing A Life Ltd was not affiliated to any charity but claimed to distribute 50 per cent of the funds donated to child related causes. However, investigators found that just three per cent of more than £275,000 was paid out to good causes between May 2006 and January 2007 when the company ceased trading with more liabilities than assets. The investigators said that the company was in breach of charity legislation and failed to tell donors exactly how much would be given to the good causes, and its record keeping was so poor that it was impossible to ensure all money donated to specific causes actually went to that cause.

Both media outlets recently criticized President Ali Bongo or his close allies. With the HAC in charge, critical reporting seems to result in almost automatic suspension. The HAC said it was suspending Echos du Nord for a month because it failed to respond to a summons for questioning about an article reporting that Gabon’s vice-president had bought a luxury car – an acquisition that the vice-president himself acknowledged after the article’s publication.

Required fields are marked * St. Patrick’s Day brings to mind shamrocks, leprechauns, pots of gold, and good luck. But no amount of luck can save you from a drunk-driving crash. So whether youâ€™re buzzed or drunk on St. Patrickâ€™s Day, it doesnâ€™t matter. NHTSA wants to remind everyone that Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Drivingâ€”drive sober.The Pasadena Police Department will be conducting a roving DUI patrol this St. Patrickâ€™s Day looking to stop and arrest drivers who are impaired by alcohol or drugs. This DUI patrol is, in addition to regularly scheduled patrol officers, all looking for the tell-tale signs of an impaired driver behind the wheel.In 2013, there were 31 people killed in drunk-driving crashes on St. Patrickâ€™s Day. All in all, during the St. Pattyâ€™s Day period from 2009 to 2013, there have been 276 drunk-driving fatalities. Every one of those lives was lost because of bad decisions. Unfortunately, March 17 has become a deadly day in the United States, with a dramatic spike in drunk-driving fatalities. And weâ€™re not just talking about a little bit too much to drink here; from 2009 to 2013, almost three-fourths of the drunk-driving fatalities on St. Patrickâ€™s Day involved drivers who were twice the legal limit.The Pasadena Police Department offered this advice to partygoers: â€œGet ahead of the decision this year. If you know youâ€™re going to celebrate St. Patrickâ€™s Day with alcohol, then figure out a plan ahead of time for how youâ€™ll get home. Donâ€™t wait until youâ€™re too buzzed to decide, and donâ€™t let your friends drive drunk.â€ Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving, so if you have anything to drink, count on a sober friend, taxi, or public transportation to drive you home safely. Not drinking? Maybe this St. Patrickâ€™s Day, youâ€™ll be the saint who drives your friends sober.Letâ€™s make 2015 different. Use this party-planning checklist to stay safe this St. Patrickâ€™s Day.â€¢ DDVIP: The California Office of Traffic Safety DDVIP app is now available for free download on iOS and Android devices. Launched last year the new DDVIP app offers enhanced features, allowing users to â€œMap a Spotâ€ with their current location to find DDVIP partnering establishments in their area or a â€œList of Spotsâ€ to search all participating bars and restaurants throughout California. Users can stay up-to-date with the latest from DDVIP and see what other users are saying via its social tab. Also through the app, for those who want to imbibe but also make it a point to plan ahead, users can easily order a sober ride from Uber, Lyft or Curb â€“ all from one screen.â€¢ NOW: Even if you donâ€™t have plans yet, plan to drive sober or designate someone else to. Save the number of a taxi company in your phone so you always have a backup plan.â€¢ WHEN YOU MAKE PLANS: A sober driver is an essential part of any party plan. Once you know where youâ€™ll celebrate, decide whether youâ€™re drinking or driving. You can only choose one.â€¢ ON ST. PATRICKâ€™S DAY: Before you take your first sip of green beer, leave your keys at home or give them to a friend. If youâ€™re the designated driver, donâ€™t drink. Enjoy non-alcoholic beverages and brag about your VIP (very important partygoer) status online using the hashtag #designateddriver. Only drive sober or ride with a sober driver.â€¢ EVERY DAY: If youâ€™re impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation to get home safely. If you know people who are about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely.â€¢ DRUGS, MEDICATION & ALCOHOL= CRASHES: Recent statistics reveal that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol.Funding is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that reminds everyone to â€˜Report Drunk Drivers!
