Auckland mega-brothel hearings ‘a sham’

first_imgONE News 13 Nov 2012Family First says hearings on whether a mega-brothel should be located in central Auckland opposite Sky City are a sham because the council has already effectively made up its mind.Brothers John and Michael Chow plan to build their Penthouse Club on the site of the historic Palace Hotel on Victoria Street West which was demolished two years ago under council orders.Family First National Director Bob McCoskrie says it is evident from making the organisation’s submission at the council’s resource consent hearing today that the committee is only concerned about minor issues such as traffic flow, carparks and video screens.“Yet this ignores the overwhelming number of submissions questioning the location and the effect of the brothel on the character of the central city area,” McCoskrie said in a statement.“It appears that the Auckland Council has already given the green light to the big bold ‘red light’ in the heart of the city where there are tourists and families and children. This is completely unacceptable,” he said.The proposed mega-brothel is part of a building which will be used by children and families because of its restaurants, accommodation and entertainment areas which could hold wedding receptions, conferences, kids’ activities etc, he said.It is also located close to residential apartments, hotels, backpacker accommodation, churches, the Auckland City Mission, family restaurants, and opposite the main entrance to a major tourist attraction, McCroskie said.http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/auckland-mega-brothel-hearings-sham-5214062last_img read more

I’ve been fortunate to get this opportunity and it’s good to see them with a real nice filly.”The Santa Monica, which goes as race five: Master the Blues, Kent Desormeaux; Dancinthenightaway, Tyler Baze; Lexington Pearl, Victor Espinoza; Sam’s Sister, Elvis Trujillo; Harlington’s Rose, Joe Talamo; My Sweet Addiction, Gary Stevens; and Sweet Martini, Martin Garcia.Fans can “buck up” thanks to another popular Dollar Day at Santa Anita Monday, the finale of a three-day holiday weekend at The Great Race Place.

We’re looking forward to seeing if she can transfer that form to the dirt.”The field for the La Canada: Fleet of Gold, Alex Solis, 12-1; Sam’s Sister, Elvis Trujillo, 2-1; Lexie Lou, Corey Nakatani, 6-5; Thegirlinthatsong, Rafael Bejarano, 8-1; Jojo Warrior, Martin Garcia, 4-1; Une Cherise, Joe Talamo, 15-1; Ramona’s Wildcat, Kent Desormeaux, 15-1; and Colonel Joan, Gary Stevens, 12-1.

I got a report on him this morning from Golden Gate that he was especially good today.”Bob Baffert, meanwhile, left the San Antonio door ajar for Bayern, who could still make the race. Recovering from an abscess on a hind foot, the son of Offlee Wild owned by Kaleem Shah missed a scheduled work last Saturday but is on the track jogging.“I’ll make the call that week,” Baffert said Friday morning on Bayern’s status for the San Antonio. “He’s pretty fit. I’ll know more in a few days.”Baffert ruled out the San Antonio for Hoppertunity, impressive winner of the San Pasqual Stakes on Jan. 10. “It’s too soon,” he said.

So says Ron Anderson, agent for Rosario, in a rational rebuttal to the disappointment expressed by agent Brian Beach recently on his rider, Victor Espinoza, not making the cut.The winner will be announced tomorrow night at the Eclipse Awards dinner at Gulfstream Park Racing & Casino.“There’s something to all that,” Anderson said, referring to Espinoza’s near-miss with California Chrome in the Triple Crown races and helping thrust the popular California-bred into the mainstream.“But when it comes to the statistics, it’s not even close. It’s pretty much black and white,” to wit: In stakes wins, Castellano, Rosario and Velazquez were the top three with 54, 48 and 42, while Espinoza won 25.Velazquez and Castellano each had 30 graded stakes wins and Rosario 29. Espinoza had 19. In purse earnings, Castellano was first with $25,056,464; Rosario second with $21,558,485; and Velazquez fourth with $19,486,658. Espinoza was eighth with $12,116,015.FINISH LINES: Undefeated Los Alamitos Futurity winner Dortmund, a candidate for the Robert B. Lewis Stakes on Feb. 7, worked six furlongs Thursday in a bullet 1:12.20, fastest of 28 at the distance, while Lord Nelson, ticketed for the San Vicente Stakes on Feb. 1, went the same distance in 1:12.60. “He’s relaxing,” Bob Baffert said of Dortmund. “He’s not there yet. We’ve got a ways to go.” . . . Correction: A Celebration of Life for the late Dr. Jack Robbins will be held Tuesday, Jan. 27, from 2 to 5 p.m., at Del Mar’s Turf Club, not Santa Anita’s . . .

Here’s how private clocker Gary Young, who does not have an official vote, sees it:“In a year with no dominant older horse, for Main Sequence to go undefeated and win four Grade I’s is an awfully big accomplishment. But being a turf horse and not facing grass horses that have been better in recent years probably eliminates him.“You can’t knock Bayern’s body of work at all, but whether it’s right or wrong, people are going hold what happened in the Breeders’ Cup Classic against him.“When you throw everything into the machine and spit out the answer, any horse that wins two-thirds of the Triple Crown in a year with all these variables, California Chrome is probably going to get it.“To see a horse win it for a trainer (77-year-old Art Sherman) who isn’t a huge name and has been around all this time would be pretty popular. The (co) owner (Steve Colburn) lost some fans when he went from Wilfred Grimley to Yosemite Sam in about 30 seconds there (in a nationally televised rant after Chrome lost the Belmont Stakes).“But it’s a great story. The horse couldn’t have had a more under-the-radar pedigree. If I did have a vote, by no means would it be a slam-dunk, but I’d probably vote for California Chrome.”Meanwhile Sherman and Coburn accepted the NTRA’s Moment of the Year Award thismorning at Gulfstream during the annual ThoroFan Awards breakfast.California Chrome was an “easy winner” for his Kentucky Derby triumph, decided by an online fan vote.
