WARREN’S SHOWTIME, BULLETPROOF ONE & STRADARI ALL PROMINENT IN WIDE OPEN FIELD OF 12 IN $200,000 GOLDEN STATE JUVENILE FILLIES FRIDAY AT SEVEN FURLONGS RACE IS PART OF LUCRATIVE GOLDEN STATE SERIES FOR CALIFORNIA-BRED OR SIRED HORSES ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 28, 2019)–Well accomplished stakes winners Warren’s Showtime and Bulletproof One, along with promising Golden Gate Fields maiden winner Stradari all figure prominently among a field of 12 two-year going seven furlongs in Friday’s $200,000 Golden State Juvenile Fillies at Santa Anita.For juvenile fillies bred or sired in California, the Golden State Juvenile is sponsored by the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association and is part of the lucrative Golden State Series.Warren’s Showtime, a daughter of red-hot California-based sire Clubhouse Ride, comes off an impressive win in the one mile turf Surfer Girl Stakes here on Oct. 6 and she’ll shorten up in distance and try dirt for the second time in her career.Bulletproof One, a lightning quick daughter of Idiot Proof, is a two-time stakes winner who will be trying two turns for the first time, while Stradari, a daughter of top California sire Square Eddie, comes off a four length romp in her 5 ½ furlong debut on synthetic Tapeta.WARREN’S SHOWTIMEOwner: Benjamin & Sally WarrenTrainer: Craig LewisA solid third in her only other main track race, a 5 ½ furlong Cal-bred maiden special weight four starts back at Del Mar July 17, Warren’s Showtime, who is out of Ben Warren’s Grade I winning Warren’s Veneda, broke her maiden in her next start, a one mile turf affair on Aug. 21. Although she took the Surfer Girl at 35-1, there was nothing flukish about the way she did it and Lewis, who also conditioned the sire and dam, intended to run in Saturday’s seven furlong stake all along.BULLETPROOF ONEOwner: Gary Barber, Cecil Barber & Eclipse ThoroughbredsTrainer: Peter MillerOriginally owned and trained by Ellen Jackson, Bulletproof One is the most accomplished filly in the Golden State Juvenile Fillies, with a pair of stakes win and earnings of $159,400. Most recently a troubled second, beaten a head in the five furlong turf Speakeasy Stakes here Oct. 6, she’ll be making her sixth overall start and fourth for Miller on Saturday. Although she’ll be trying a route of ground for the first time, she handled the turf well in the Speakeasy and may never look back if she can shake loose heading to the far turn.STRADARIOwner: Glen Road Racing LLC & HorseShare, LLCTrainer: O.J. JaureguiOff at even money on Sept. 21 at Golden Gate, she dominated six rivals in a gate to wire romp that convinced her connections to take a shot on Saturday. A $30,000 Fasig Tipton Santa Anita 2-year-old in Training Sale purchase this past summer, Stradari could prove bothersome to anyone with front-running intentions. Bred in California by Reddam Racing, LLC, she’s out of the Ecclesiastic mare Lyla Della.THE $200,000 GOLDEN STATE JUVENILE FILLIES WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTS IN POST POSITION ORDERRace 3 of 10 Approximate post time 11:30 a.m. PTHomehome–Mario Gutierrez–122Almost a Factor–Geovanni Franco–122Wicked Fresh–Joe Talamo–120Warren’s Showtime–Jorge Velez–124Stradari–Flavien Prat,–122Bella Renella–E.

…still no new leadsThe illegal aircraft that was recently discovered camouflaged at an airstrip in Yupukari, Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo), has been repaired and flown to Timehri for investigations to be completed.The illegal twin-engine Cessna aircraft at CJIAAccording to a statement from the Guyana Defence Force (GDF), the twin-engine Cessna Aircraft was flown from Yupukari to Lethem initially on Friday, before arriving at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) at 10:00h on Saturday.The release outlined that aeronautical engineers from the GDF Air Corps, after inspecting the aircraft, had identified the problems which had rendered it inoperable. The necessary spares were sourced and the repairs conducted, thus resulting in the aircraft becoming operable.As such, it was flown to Lethem where it overnighted. This allowed for the GDF engineers to conduct further repairs and functional checks which then allowed it to be flown to Timehri. It is currently secured at the GDF Air Corps Hangar, Air Station London, CJIA.Meanwhile, investigations are ongoing with regards to all aspects surrounding the discovery of the aircraft.Outgoing Chief-of-Staff, Brigadier Mark Phillips, told Guyana Times on Saturday that no further leads have been found with regards to finding the persons connected with the aircraft. However, he explained that with the aircraft now at the CJIA, investigators will be able to better examine it with more resources being available.On September 13, a Joint Service patrol discovered the illegal aircraft hidden just off of the Yupukari Airstrip, with United States registration N-767-Z.Subsequently, a team of investigators from the GDF, Guyana Police Force (GPF), Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) and Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) was deployed from Georgetown to the area to conduct investigations and were able to determine that the registration number was bogus.Moreover, investigators had discovered during interviews with nearby residents that the aircraft had been sighted circling the area on numerous occasions in the past.Additionally, a number of residents shared information they deemed as “suspicious activity”, including the presence of motorcycles or ATVs frequenting the area at midnight.Guyana Times was told by sources that a leak was discovered in the fuel tank. This, investigators believe, may have caused the aircraft to land in Guyana.However, it has been reported that one of the local law enforcement agencies was aware of the aircraft at least three weeks before the disclosure was made. It was reported that the security officials were monitoring the aircraft to see if anyone would return to salvage it.To this end, President David Granger has established a one-man Commission of Inquiry (CoI) to probe the discovery of the illegal aircraft and appointed retired Brigadier Edward Collins to investigate, examine, advise and report on all aspects under which the foreign aircraft had entered the country.
