Fenton banned for three years

first_img Fenton was called before officials after being found guilty of possessing anabolic steroids and other banned substances at a district court hearing last month. A cardboard box packed with 25 bottles and containers of animal remedies was found hidden in the horse spa in his yard in County Tipperary during a search by officials from the Department of Agriculture in January 2012. The Tullow Tank was another flag-bearer for the yard, but he has already been transferred from Fenton’s stables by owner Barry Connell. Powerful owners Gigginstown House Stud also removed the three horses they had in training with Fenton, including the Grade Two-winning Real Steel. Fenton had a runner at Gowran on Saturday when Ange D’Or Javilex finished third in a two-mile novice hurdle. Philip Fenton has been disqualified from holding a trainer’s licence for three years following an Irish Turf Club hearing. Press Association Among them was one kilo of the anabolic steroid Nitrotain in a paste form in a black tub – enough for 250 doses – and a 20ml bottle of a second performance-enhancing drug Ilium Stanabolic. Fenton was fined 6,000 euro as well as being ordered to pay a further 4,200 euro in costs following the case. The Cheltenham Festival-winning trainer did not give evidence in the one-day hearing in Carrick-on-Suir District Court and refused to explain afterwards why he had the steroids in his yard. Fenton’s disqualification period from training horses will begin from midnight on Friday, November 28. On March 1 next year he will be disqualified entirely from any horseracing environment. Fenton’s solicitor pleaded for a financial punishment, rather than disqualification, but a Turf Club panel felt the severity of the offence was of sufficient gravity to hand out a three-year suspension. Head of the panel Tony Hunt said Fenton would still have the right to appeal. The 49-year-old trainer enjoyed great success with Dunguib, who won the 2009 Champion Bumper at Cheltenham, and Last Instalment, but those two horses have since been retired. last_img read more

Spurs Welcome United Amidst Title Chase

first_imgFor the Leicester side that plunged to the foot of the table last season, four wins in six games might have seemed like a daunting task. Yet such has been the collective sense of calm that seems to encircle Claudio Ranieri’s side this year that few are now expecting a collapse in the home straight.The slip-ups and the wobbles have been reserved for the so-called bigger teams, who have all fallen off the pace while Leicester have sailed smoothly through the supposed choppy waters of the title run-in.Four successive 1-0 victories have propelled Leicester to the verge of success and been testament to the organisational abilities of their Italian coach.Leicester have never kept five consecutive clean sheets in the top flight, but, in a season when past records have counted for little, it would be a brave man, or perhaps a foolish one, to bet against another shut-out against Sunderland, whose relegation woes are intensifying.Allardyce’s side are four points adrift of Norwich City in 17th and entering the now-or-never part of the season when they will have to start winning or become resigned to their fate.City, buoyed by a gritty 2-2 draw at Paris St Germain in their Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday, host West Bromwich Albion, who are comfortably placed in mid-table.Third place Arsenal, whose hopes of taking anything from the campaign look forlorn as they trail Leicester by 11 points, albeit with a game in hand, travel to West Ham United on Saturday.Newcastle United, who are battling local rivals Sunderland to avoid relegation, visit Southampton, while Norwich play at Crystal Palace.Alan Pardew’s Palace are three points above Norwich, but seemingly in free fall after failing to win a league game since December.Photo CaptionClaudio Ranieri and his players warming for the Premiership titleShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Return fixture on Sunday, some of those supporters are now pre-emptively buying scarves emblazoned with the words ‘Premier League Champions’.While many are no doubt steering clear to avoid tempting fate, four victories from the remaining six games of the season will hand Leicester a maiden top flight title and complete one of the most remarkable fairytales in English soccer history.Leicester lead second place Tottenham Hotspur by seven points heading intoSunday’s game and need 12 more to put themselves out of sight.last_img read more

Women’s soccer looks for deep playoff run beginning with Big Ten tournament

first_imgThe postseason starts Wednesday for the Wisconsin women’s soccer team as they take on Illinois — whom they just tied this past Friday — in the Big Ten tournament this Friday.Even though Illinois (10-7-2, 5-6-2 Big Ten) is ranked significantly lower than UW (15-2-2, 9-2-2 Big Ten), and finished with a conference record near the .500 mark, Illinois put up a fight last weekend and tied the conference’s No. 2 seed Wisconsin in what ended up being a scoreless match.Despite UW outshooting the Fighting Illini 10-3, sophomore goaltender Claire Wheatley stayed strong and shut out the Wisconsin frontline. The Badger defense obviously succeeded as well, adding another shutout to its repertoire for a grand total of 14 throughout this regular season, though reports from the game suggest that the windy weather conditions played a part in the lack of offense generated by either team.It may seem like a slight advantage this time around that the Illini won’t be playing in front of their home crowd. According to UW head coach Paul Wilkins, however, that might not make a difference, as the Big Ten tournament will be held at Purdue in West Lafayette, Indiana.“Any time you get to play in front of your home crowd there’s a positive effect, but these Big Ten games, the margin for error is so narrow, I think home or away right now, it doesn’t have much effect,” Wilkins said.Furthermore, while a tie may seem like a neutral enough outcome for the two teams to be coming off of headed into playoffs, it could easily have very different effects on the two programs.After struggling with many conference rivals throughout the regular season, Illinois might have more momentum to gain off the draw than UW. In fact, the Illini have only seen one win in the last month, and only racked up half as many shutouts as UW throughout the regular season, making a 0-0 tie feel a bit more victorious for Illinois.On the other hand, Illinois was only the fourth team this season that Wisconsin failed to trump, most likely leaving the UW roster somewhat frustrated, especially considering Illinois is seeded at No. 7 for the Big Ten tournament. And after working as hard as they have throughout the last year, the Badgers had hopes, and maybe anticipations, that Friday’s game would finish slightly more in their favor.But, as redshirt senior Kodee Williams said earlier this season, “Anything can happen in the Big Ten,” and that especially holds true in postseason play.Despite finishing with a similar record last year, Illinois advanced to the third round in the NCAA tournament, eventually falling to Boston College in a 4-1 loss, though the Illini outshot their opponent 24-13, again sending a message that they can hold their own against the tougher competition.Additionally, Big Ten postseason awards were just announced recently, and some big titles were handed out to both Wisconsin and Illinois players, showcasing the talent that both programs will be bringing back to Wednesday’s matchup.Illinois forward Jannelle Flaws received the Big Ten’s Forward of the Year award for the second year in a row, and it’s hard to argue that it should’ve gone to anyone else.  The redshirt senior finished the regular season leading the conference in overall shots (101), points (37) and goals (17), even finishing fourth in the country in goals. Last weekend alone, Flaws racked up four of her team’s 11 shots against Wisconsin, one of the three that were on net.Across the border, Wisconsin saw some honors as well, the biggest of which went to its much-deserving goaltender. Redshirt senior Genevieve Richard was named the conference’s Goaltender of the Year after finishing the regular season with the lowest goals-against average (.37), the highest save percentage (.903) and the most shutouts (14).Additionally, Richard was given First Team All-Big Ten honors, along with teammates Rose Lavelle, Kinley McNicoll and Cara Walls.These awards were just the icing on the cake for UW, who have been reaping the benefits of their hard work during the off-season throughout the last couple months.  Richard talked last week about what these successes and titles could mean as her team heads into the playoffs.“I think we’ve proved to ourselves that we can [win the tournament],” Richard said.  “Not only do we believe that we can do it, but we’ve performed, and we’ve improved on a consistent basis.  We know we can back it up.”Still lingering in the back of the Badgers’ minds is last year’s Big Ten tournament, when they were surprisingly eliminated in the first round and sent home much sooner than anticipated. Richard said that experience left a bad taste in their mouths — one that the Badgers are eager to get rid of.“This year, our mindset is different,” Richard said. “Everyone believes we can outperform and if we bring a collective effort, I know we can go far.”The No. 2 Badgers will take to the pitch against the No. 7 Illini at 3:30 p.m. (CST) Wednesday from West Lafayette.last_img read more

Cross-selling in lockdown: what have we learnt?

first_img Share The recent unforeseen hiatus in live sporting events has presented the betting and gaming industry with one of the biggest challenges it has ever had to face, yet the experience has also been a learning curve, writes Pronet Gaming CCO Bobby Longhurst (pictured).The transition of sports bettors to alternative gambling content streams provided us with unique insight into player preferences which would not have otherwise been available – including some surprises. For sportsbook operators that recognised the opportunity to expand their offering with virtuals, esports and additional casino content, this remarkable period has taught invaluable lessons in how to cross-sell.  Despite the sports betting shutdown, many of our partners have been able to attract a number of existing customers to the new products in their offering. Although a proportion of this growth has been organic, the number of transitioning customers has been amplified by efforts to educate sports bettors on alternative content and tailor promotional activity. For esports, a vertical more traditional customers may have been unfamiliar with, education has been key to conversion. Bettors are more inclined to wager on markets that they understand, so promoting esports events on sportsbook platforms first required educating customers on how to bet on them. The virtual sports offering, meanwhile, presented people with a more familiar concept. Football and racing fans have naturally gravitated towards the virtual sport counterpart to continue engaging with a version of their favourite hobbies. What many have been impressed by, however, is the quality of virtual content now on offer. Advances in technology have made for huge improvements to the graphics and mechanics of virtual games in recent times, as well as an increase to the number of formats and betting markets available. As the virtual gaming experience aligns even more closely with that of real-life, the conversion of sports bettors will no doubt continue. In terms of cross-selling to online casino, the effectiveness has largely been dependent on the product offer and presentation. Fast-loading swipe casino games such as roulette and blackjack have been successful in attracting sportsbook customers. As well as seeming more approachable than slots, these traditional table games offer a convenience and quick-fire play which appeals to punters. Moreover, they allow players to seamlessly swipe between casino and sportsbook content, rather than redirecting them away from the main event. As sports events resume, this content will likely continue to serve as a tool to maintain engagement in multiple products at the same time.Looking at these three verticals combined, the overarching learning from recent events is the importance of having a diverse product portfolio. Being overly reliant on one offering has brought significant consequences for businesses throughout the industry, and it is those that have been quick to adapt and diversify which will emerge out the crisis in a better shape. At Pronet, we immediately refocused the user experience of our platform to give greater prominence to alternative products. Taking virtuals as an example, this allowed our partners to market virtual football and racing as though it was prime-time Premier League action and racing from Aintree, thereby offering another form of cross-selling for our operators by introducing players to entry-level RNG offerings.Ensuring these converted customers stick around as sports betting resumes is now a task for the industry as a whole. As the key to player engagement, retention techniques will be more important than ever before. In an ideal world, sports bettors will continue to take part in the form of entertainment they turned to during lockdown, whether it be virtuals, esports or online casino, at the same time as betting on their favourite sporting fixtures. Whether that becomes a reality will depend on the quality of the new gaming experiences offered, combined with a more considered approach as to how content is presented. If what we’ve learnt in recent weeks is applied to cross-selling strategies moving forward, then we’re confident a strong segment of bettors will keep returning to the alternative betting entertainment they enjoyed during this period even when live sports returns.
