Three-time champion jockey Dane Nelson was on Tuesday cleared by the stewards of the Jamaica Racing Commission for his riding of highly-fancied COMMANDING CHIEF in the seventh race for overnight allowance horses at Caymanas Park on Saturday, March 19. Nelson rode the veteran campaigner to finish fifth to HOVER CRAFT over 1500 metres, but the stewards were not satisfied with his riding and summoned him to an inquiry. After hearing submissions from Nelson as well as his representative Ed Barnes, the stewards accepted the jockey’s submission that he had suffered an injury on the track on Friday, March 18 and had received medication from the doctor. They also accepted the argument that COMMANDING CHIEF displayed symptoms of breathing problems during the race, which affected his performance. Additionally, Nelson apologised to the stewards for his disrespectful behaviour in the scales area and in the vicinity of the Stewards’ Room. He was also cautioned regarding his conduct and what is expected of him as a professional jockey. Nelson, the leading rider with 22 wins so far this season, was second time lucky yesterday, when he successfully appealed the decision by the stewards to disqualify his mount, PAPER N LACE after winning division one of the McKay Security Trophy over 1820m on New Year’s Day. The horse was disqualified for causing interference to OH MY GRANDPA in the early stages of the event and the race was awarded to GRAN CORAZON. PAPER N LACE was reinstated to first by the full Commission.

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Wednesday visited the family of soldier Aurangzeb, who was abducted and killed by terrorists two days ahead of Eid, and described him as an inspiration for the nation.Accompanied by senior Army officers, the Minister went to the remote hamlet of Salani in the border district of Poonch to express her condolences to the family of the slain soldier, officials said.’An inspiration to nation’“I have come here to meet the martyr’s family,” Ms. Sitharaman told reporters after meeting the family, including Aurangzeb’s father, a former Army man who reiterated his resolve to sacrifice his all to safeguard the integrity and sovereignty of the country.“Here is a family, here is a martyr, who to me and I am sure to the whole nation, stands out as an inspiration… and that is the message I am carrying from here,” she said.Aurangzeb, who was posted with 44 Rashtriya Rifles, was on his way home to celebrate Eid when terrorists abducted him in south Kashmir on June 14 and killed him the same day. He had boarded a private vehicle for Shopian, from where he was supposed to go to Rajouri district.The terrorists intercepted the vehicle as it approached Kalampora and abducted him. His bullet-riddled body was found at Gussu village, about 10 km from Kalampora, in Pulwama district.The Minister’s visit to his family came two days after Army Chief Gen. Bipin Rawat spent over 30 minutes with his parents.Aurangzeb family’s emotional appeal to PMEarlier, Aurangzeb’s family had made an emotional appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Army and the Jammu and Kashmir government to eliminate militancy from the State and avenge his death.“My son has laid down his life for the country. He was a brave soldier. My sons and I will also sacrifice [ourselves] for the nation. We want goons to be wiped out,” Mohammad Hanief, Aurangzeb’s father and a former sepoy of the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry, had said.
