Kingsbarns usurped by sharp Qewy

first_img “He won his maiden in Navan last year very well and he probably didn’t go on the quick ground in the summer. He went on that ground very well,” said McDonogh. “You’d have to like him there. He might run well in the Gladness Stakes (at the Curragh next month) or something like that.” Kingsbarns was not the only high-profile Aidan O’Brien horse to flounder in the difficult conditions as Johann Strauss also had to settle for minor honours earlier on the card. Runner-up in last season’s Racing Post Trophy, the 4-5 favourite could finish only third after a troubled run in the Ross Nugent Foundation Maiden. One of O’Brien’s Classic prospects, he was held up as stablemate Illusive and Le Troisieme Gris set the pace. Joseph O’Brien made his move early in the straight and went for a gap on the inside but it was closed by Kevin Manning on the eventual winner Fiscal Focus (5-2). Jim Bolger’s colt just held Boqa by a nose, with Johann Strauss a never-nearer third, another length and three-quarters away. “He got through the ground but we won’t know how good he is until he gets better ground,” said Bolger. Kingsbarns could finish only third as Qewy made all of the running to spring a surprise in the Heritage Stakes at Leopardstown. “He’s a good sort – I like him and I think he has prospects. “He doesn’t lack toe and it’s possible he could come back in trip too.” The narrowly-beaten Boqa, is trained by Tommy Stack, who took the Bulmers Live at Leopardstown Summer Racedays 2014 Fillies Maiden with the newcomer Waltzing Matilda (3-1) under Wayne Lordan. The daughter of Danehill Dancer is likely to return to the Dublin track for the Derrinstown Stud 1,000 Guineas Trial on May 11. Stack’s son and assistant, Fozzy, said: “They didn’t go much of a gallop and it turned into a sprint which wasn’t ideal. “She wants a mile and a quarter – she’s quite nice but she’s still big, raw and green. She can only improve. “I was going to enter her in the Athasi Stakes but I thought it was a bit short for her. “She’ll probably come back here for the Guineas Trial.” The 2012 Racing Post Trophy winner held every chance but could not get to the John Oxx-trained 11-1 outsider of five in the rain-softened ground. Qewy kept pulling out more for Declan McDonogh and got the verdict by three-quarters of a length from Pop Art, who took second spot from 4-6 favourite Kingsbarns. Press Associationlast_img read more

Wellington Council gives “support” resolution for sale of junior high building to Garrison

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington City Council approved a resolution supporting the development of housing at the Wellington Junior High building, located at 311 North A Street at its Tuesday meeting. The Wellington school board recently approved the sale of the building at its January meeting to Garrison Community Development, LLC, (see story here).The housing development if built will contain 42 units, be targeted toward families, and contain several amenities including off-street parking, on-site leasing office, tenant storage, a new central heat/air unit(s) and various household appliances. The tentative name for the project is “The Old School Lofts.” The apartments are proposed for one bedroom costing tenants $450 a month; two bedrooms for $550, three bedrooms for $650.The project costs will total about $8.5 million to be made possible by the equity generated from the sale of Low Income Housing Tax Credits, Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits and conventional construction/perment loads according to a Wellington City memo.The project developer Garrison Hassenflu was not in attendance at the meeting.Wellington City Manager Gus Collins said this is simply a resolution of support and won’t deal with specific issues such as applications for tax credits or rezoning which is assured to come in the future.The advisory Wellington Planning Commission will be visiting the rezoning of the building at its February 26 meeting.Wellington council member Larry Shimer said he was concerned with what type of housing will be available with the proposed complex.“I want to make sure this is good for the citizens of the community and it doesn’t create problems down the road,” Shimer said.Collins said the council can still revisit many of the issues in the future.Shimer said Hassenflu needs to meet with the council in the future to answer questions. The council unanimously approved the resolution as an “approval” ordinance needed to be in the developers’ hands by Feb. 15, Collins said. Close Forgot password?

I think 42 units could fill up pretty quickly. Report Reply 0 replies · active 392 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down MJE · 392 weeks ago I think there’s a shortage of rentals in town that have more than 2 bedrooms, so the 3 BR units ought to fill up quickly. there are 2 BR duplexes and single family homes available in Wellington, and many of them priced significantly less than $550. Only time will tell. Report Reply 0 replies · active 392 weeks ago -2 Vote up Vote down Jane · 392 weeks ago For $550 you can rent a two bedroom apartment in Wichita. For $550 you can rent a three bedroom house in Wellington. People live here because the cost of living, including housing, is cheaper than in Wichita. They are going to have to lower the rent prices to reflect the local market, or they are going to have a hard time filling up units, regardless of the need for rental housing in Wellington.
