“That will be another picture of the grandkids off the wall at mum and dad’s house!” Lynam said: “Stupidly I watched the race on the inside of the track and I couldn’t see anything. They were all just running up in a blur, but I knew he was up in the front of the pack and I’m delighted with the result. “It was a muddling, messy sort of race and it wasn’t ideal for him. “I’ve always spoke of him very highly and thought he was very good. “I’m looking forward to taking him to Melbourne. The last race of his career will be in the VRC Sprint in Melbourne in November. “I think today he’s proved he’s the best sprinter in Europe and the obvious step now is to try and make him the best sprinter in the world. What better place to go than Australia and try to beat them on their own patch, which won’t be easy, but we’ll give it a go. “Ideally, we’ve about eight weeks between now and Haydock and then eight weeks between Haydock and the VRC Sprint. “Haydock is a maybe, nothing else.” Ivory was thrilled with the effort of Tropics, said: “I’m absolutely over the moon. It doesn’t get much better than this. It was a phenomenal run. “The way this horse won his Group Three last year, there was so much more to come but the yard just took a long time to get going this year. “We had a bug in the yard and one thing and another, but we’ve come through that and the horses have started to run a lot better. “You’ve got to keep believing in them. You’ve got to keep getting up every morning and say ‘there’s more to come’. “He’s in the Haydock Sprint Cup and at the end of the year we might end up abroad somewhere.” Slade Power successfully followed up his Royal Ascot triumph with a dominant display in the Darley July Cup at Newmarket. Eddie Lynam’s five-year-old was a heavily-supported 7-4 favourite following his maiden Group One victory in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes last month and although he got warm before the off, it clearly had no effect on his performance. Racing in the far-side group and given a nice lead by Spanish challenger Noozhoh Canarias, Slade Power was ridden to lead entering the last of the six furlongs and was well on top as he passed the post a length and a half clear under Wayne Lordan. Tropics, a 66-1 outsider, ran a massive race to fill the runner-up spot for Dean Ivory, with the John Gosden-trained Gregorian finishing strongly to grab third ahead of American runner Undrafted. Lynam and the owners David and Sabena Power were due to be double-handed in the race but Slade Power’s fellow Ascot hero Sole Power, winner of the King’s Stand, was taken out due to the ground. David Power said: “We always said this horse needed time and this was always going to be his year. “That (sweating) was never a concern. It would be a concern if he didn’t sweat up. It’s part of his nature.” Sabena said: “I was disappointed when Sole didn’t run, but I think Slade will give him an awful time when he gets home! “We’re terribly lucky.” The owners are the parents of leading bookmaker Paddy Power, who made a match bet of £5,000 with Undrafted’s owner, Wes Welker, a leading American Football player, earlier this week. But Power revealed: “Because Sole Power didn’t run, we’re both going to give £5,000 to the Injured Jockeys Fund. Press Association

Perry’s game misconduct was the first such penalty for any player over the 12-game history of the Winter Classic. His long, lonely walk across the Cotton Bowl Stadium field to the locker rooms became something of a viral sensation on social media, but the veteran of more than 1,000 NHL games will not be laughing following Friday’s punishment.Perry, who signed with the Stars in the offseason as a free agent after 14 seasons with the Anaheim Ducks, will miss Dallas’ upcoming games against the Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings, Ducks, San Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche, and he will forfeit $40,322.60 of salary. His suspension will be lifted for the Stars’ Jan. 16 contest with the Buffalo Sabres.Perry has three goals and 13 points in 34 games with the Stars this season. Nashville scored twice during the ensuing five-minute power play, but the Stars ultimately won the game 4-2.Corey Perry gets thrown out of the Winter Classic for elbowing Ryan Ellis pic.twitter.com/0yeegUxh41— Brady Trettenero (@BradyTrett) January 1, 2020MORE: Midseason replacement coaches with best odds to win Stanley Cup The Dallas Stars will be without the services of Corey Perry for the next two weeks.Perry was handed a five-game suspension by the NHL’s Department of Player Safety on Friday following his ejection from Monday’s Winter Classic.

Director of the Department of Energy, Dr Mark Bynoe has called on Indigenous leaders to craft a strategic plan to ensure their communities benefit equally from oil and gas resources.Department of Energy Director Dr Mark BynoeThe Department of Public Information (DPI) reported that Bynoe made the call while addressing the over 200 Toshaos and other Indigenous leaders in Georgetown for the 13th National Toshaos Council (NTC) Conference at the Arthur Chung Conference Centre (ACCC).He is quoted by DPI as saying, “It must not just be a band-aid solution to address an immediate need, it should be focused towards where is it you want to go as a community, as a village and how is it you are going to get there… the biggest question that people ask is ‘when the monies begin to flow, how much will come to my region?’ The first thing I say is to have a plan… that in time to come you can have a defined pathway of how you will be able to improve the wellbeing of your people”.The Director also explained that Guyana will not automatically be transformed with first oil since the $62 billion only represents about 10 per cent of Guyana’s current Gross Domestic Product (GDP).“It is important that we understand that as we move forward within this sector… that we need to prioritise. Government also needs to prioritise as there are multiple demands on the limited resources, they have at their disposal inclusive of improvement in healthcare, education, enhanced infrastructure, enhanced water quality, while also seeking to ensure that we have more sustainable livelihood opportunities,” the Director stated.Some of the Indigenous leaders at the National Toshaos Council Conference 2019 (DPI photo)While providing an overview of the new and emerging sector, Dr Bynoe explained that in terms of direct benefits, Guyana is entitled to two per cent royalty and 12.2 per cent of profit oil in the initial stages. As it relates to direct employment opportunities, to date there are over 1300 Guyanese who are already employed directly in the sector. Guyana has also benefitted from over $150 million already injected into the sector.He further outlined that going forward, indirect benefits will include associated gas which can help in electricity stability and the reduction of the cost of energy, and even more training opportunities. Dr Bynoe added that while the Administration is keen on ensuring all Guyanese are getting their “fair share”, just as important is the fact that their capacity is built through training to ensure they are working alongside those external experts to ensure those skills are transferred.The Toshaos called for more education and awareness programmes on oil and gas within the hinterland villages. The Department of Energy Head said that the Department has recognised the need to conduct more awareness sessions in these areas and will be moving in that direction.Guyana first discovered oil in May 2015. US oil giant ExxonMobil has made 14 discoveries while UK company, Tullow has made two discoveries.
