CATAPULT, DELTA PRINCE, OHIO & SHARP SAMURAI ALL PROMINENT IN WIDE OPEN GRADE I, $500,000 SHOEMAKER MILE (TURF) ON MONDAY SHOEMAKER MILE IS A BREEDERS’ CUP ‘WIN & YOU’RE IN’ CHALLENGE RACEARCADIA, Calif. (May 24, 2019)–Monday’s Grade I, $500,000 Shoemaker Mile has the look of a wide open affair as Catapult, Delta Prince, Ohio and Sharp Samurai all appear to have big chances in a field of nine 3-year-olds and up on the Santa Anita turf.Named for the legendary jockey, Bill Shoemaker, who was Santa Anita’s leading rider a record 17 consecutive years, from 1951 through 1967, the Shoe Mile is a Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Challenge Race, enabling the winner an automatic berth, with entry fees paid, into the Grade I, $2 million Breeders’ Cup Mile at Santa Anita on Saturday, Nov. 2.CATAPULTOwner: Woodford Racing, LLCTrainer: John SadlerBy any accounting, an unlucky nose loser of the Grade I Frank E. Kilroe Mile (turf) here on March 30, this 6-year-old horse by Kitten’s Joy will get a rematch with Ohio on Monday, but also appears to be facing tougher overall competition. “Catapult is doing great,” Sadler said this morning. “He’s ready to go and hopefully he can win the photo this time.” A winner of both the Grade II Eddie Read and Grade II Del Mar Mile Handicap this past summer, Catapult was then second, beaten a half length, in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Mile at Churchill Downs three starts back on Nov. 3. With an overall mark of 18-6-5-1 and earnings of $1,528,359, he’ll be making his seventh start for Sadler on Monday and will be ridden back by Drayden Van Dyke.DELTA PRINCEOwner: Stronach StablesTrainer: James JerkensAlthough he’s successfully demonstrated he can lay close to the pace if need be, Delta Prince, at age six, seems better suited these days to the role of deep closer, a tactic he employed in winning the Grade I Makers Mark Mile over a “good” turf at Keeneland by 1 ½ lengths on April 12. A Stronach homebred son of Street Cry out of the Machiavellian mare Delta Princess, Delta Prince, who will be ridden by Joel Rosario, is 13-5-3-4 overall with earnings of $1,173,819.OHIOOwner: Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners & Bruce TreitmanTrainer: Michael McCarthyBetter than ever at age eight, this Brazilian-bred gelding pressed the pace and just lasted by a nose in a desperate finish over Catapult in the Grade I Kilroe Mile March 30, his first Grade I victory. Claimed for $50,000 seven starts back on June 10, 2018, Ohio has won two out of his last three starts and three out of six for McCarthy. A winner of five out of his 13 assignments at one mile on turf, Ohio will be ridden for the fourth time in a row by Ruben Fuentes and can be expected to ensure a legitimate early pace. With an overall mark of 26-9-4-2, Ohio has earnings of $488,065.SHARP SAMURAIOwner: Red Baron’s Barn, LLC, Rancho Temescal, LLC and Mark GlattTrainer: Mark GlattA fresh shooter, Sharp Samurai has been idle since a nose winner of the Grade II City of Hope Mile (turf) here on Oct. 6. A four-time graded stakes winner on grass, this 5-year-old First Samurai gelding boast the best Shoemaker last-out Beyer Speed figure, as he registered a 104 in winning the City of Hope. Ridden regularly by now-retired Gary Stevens, he’ll be handled for the first time on Monday by eastern-based Hall of Famer Johnny Velazquez. With a ton of class in his corner, look for Sharp Samurai to be attentive to pace as he tried to improve upon an overall mark of 14-8-2-0 and earnings of $735,270.THE GRADE I SHOEMAKER MILE WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTS IN POST POSITION ORDERRace 9 of 10 Approximate post time 5 p.m. PT Ohio–Ruben Fuentes–125Sharp Samurai–John Velazquez–123Le Ken–Tiago Pereira–121River Boyne–Flavien Prat–123Catapult–Drayden Van Dyke–121Bolo–Florent Geroux–121Desert Stone–Geovanni Franco–121Delta Prince–Joel Rosario–125Bowies Hero–Irad Ortiz, Jr.–121First post time for a 10-race card, that will also include the Grade I Gold Cup at Santa Anita and the Grade I Gamely Stakes, is at 1 p.m. For additional information, please visit santaanita.com or call (626) 574-RACE.

Learn Guitar (and Don’t Give Up) With the Fender Play App Even some of the world’s best marksmen, including lifelong sharpshooters, would be hard-pressed to successfully hit a target from a half-mile. Wyoming’s Nomad Rifleman Private Long Range Precision Rifle Experience ups the ante with a bucket-list-worthy camp that trains everyday folks to make a mile-long shot — in just one day.Would-be snipers travel to one of two camps located in the high desert an hour outside of Jackson Hole. Here, visitors will find a sheltered shooting platform and a full arsenal of weaponry to train them for the task at hand. Throughout a full day, world-class sharpshooters work one-on-one with students, even those who’ve never shot before. The surrounding landscape is an ideal training ground, especially since the 7,000-foot elevation means less wind and fewer environmental factors to consider.Nomad Rifleman / FacebookThe class starts with small caliber guns and short-range targets. For the first half of the day, students learn the fundamentals of shooting on a 22LR, a .223 Rem, and a .308 — all from between 100 and 1,000 yards. Then, they’ll spend a few hours “plinking” with a 6.5 Creedmoor at longer-range targets up to 1,500 yards. Final skills are taught on a 7mm Rem Magnum and 300 Winchester Magnum with targets set out at 2,175 yards. The camp’s owners don’t guarantee a “hole in one,” but claim a client success rate of higher than 95% with no previous shooting experience required.Official statistics proving membership in the “One Mile Club” are hard to come by. By some estimates, fewer than 10,000 people in history have been able to hit a target at a full mile. To put that in perspective, as of December 2017, only 8,300 people have ever summitted Mount Everest. So, the “One Mile Club” is an exclusive club indeed. Should you succeed, you’ll receive a “Proof of Hit” certificate to commemorate your achievement.The price tag for the 1-Day Private Long Range Precision Rifle Course starts at USD $7,400 for up to two people. The all-inclusive rate includes transportation, a full day of weapon use, most necessary ammunition (additional rounds are available for purchase if you decide to go full Rambo), safety gear, and even a gourmet, chef-prepared lunch.

The UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has been urged to push Sri Lanka for a timetable for implementing the recommendations in resolution 30/1 when a new resolution is submitted at the 34th session which begins in Geneva next week.In a letter to the Permanent Missions in Geneva, Human Rights Watch (HRW) has sought support in ensuring that the upcoming consideration of Sri Lanka’s progress toward implementing its commitments under United Nations Human Rights Council resolution 30/1 accurately and substantively reflects the situation within the country. A key element of the resolution consists of transitional justice promises: a special court including international judges and prosecutors to try cases of war crimes by all parties to the conflict, an office on missing and disappeared persons, a truth-seeking and reconciliation mechanism, and a reparations mechanism.HRW says the Government has made only halting progress towards fulfilling these commitments. A hastily drafted and passed law to establish an Office of Missing Persons was done without thorough consultation of key stakeholders, and the office has yet to be set up. The three other promised mechanisms have not made significant progress. Reliable reports indicate that the Government team working on these three mechanisms has prepared draft legislation but as yet they have not been shared with stakeholders.“A report issued by the Government-appointed Consultation Task Force (CTF), which conducted extensive nationwide consultations on the transitional justice mechanisms, should be given the attention it deserves. The CTF report contains specific detailed recommendations, drawn from all affected communities including the security services, and provides an important blueprint for the way forward. The government may be commended for mandating these wide-ranging consultations, and should be encouraged through the anticipated Council resolution to engage with the CTF report’s findings and give due consideration to implementing its recommendations. To do otherwise would be tantamount to a dismissal of victims’ voices. It was the victims’ rights groups that sustained a diligent campaign over many years that helped to make resolution 30/1 possible. The CTF report and its recommendations should be at the forefront in the design of Sri Lanka’s promised four transitional justice mechanisms,” HRW added. HRW says an additional note of concern on Sri Lanka’s progress on transitional justice is its ongoing resistance to any foreign involvement in the four mechanisms. “We acknowledge at the outset the positive steps taken by the Government to date. Four UN Special Procedures, plus the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, have visited Sri Lanka since the resolution was adopted. By all accounts, their visits received Government cooperation, and they were unhindered in their movements and meetings. Two nationwide consultations have been carried out, one on constitutional reform and the other on transitional justice. The Government has released some reports from previous government commissions of inquiry into wartime abuses, and established coordination offices to deal with transitional justice and reconciliation issues. Importantly, the Government in May 2016 ratified the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance,” the letter said.However, HRW said it was concerned about the Government’s actual willingness to fully implement all aspects of resolution 30/1. “This includes both progress to date and the significant challenges remaining. At the end of this letter, we outline what we would consider to be the minimum key elements for a credible follow-up resolution,” the letter states. HRW noted that the resolution, adopted by the Council in October 2015 through consensus, contains 25 key undertakings by the Sri Lankan Government across a range of human rights issues. Government officials, including the president and cabinet members, have been increasingly unwilling to consider significant international involvement in the justice mechanism. This directly contravenes the call by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights for a “hybrid” justice mechanism given the shortcomings of domestic institutions to ensure impartial investigations and witness protection, and the Sri Lankan government’s failure to take meaningful accountability measures since Sri Lanka’s civil war ended in May 2009.HRW says it is imperative that the Council remain fully engaged with the process until the commitments Sri Lanka made to the Council and UN member states and its own people through its co-sponsorship of resolution 30/1 are fully met.
