Henry de Bromhead hailed Sizing Europe as the “horse of a lifetime” after bringing the curtain down on the brilliant chaser’s stellar career. Press Association De Bromhead said: “We gave it a good bit of thought and we’re happy that he’s retiring in one piece. “He’s had a great career and there have been so many great days it would be difficult to say one was the highlight. “We had some great days in Cheltenham but there were also great days in Punchestown, Leopardstown and Sandown. “He’s going to take part in the racehorse to riding shows now. There are some great days in Ireland during the summer and he’ll go to Rosemary Connors to do that, who did all his flat work with him. “He’s been the horse of a lifetime, really.” After an emotional success at Punchestown at the end of last season, the veteran was brought back for another campaign and made a successful return by winning his fourth PWC Champion Chase at Gowran Park in early October. However, he was well-beaten in the Clonmel Oil Chase and at Cheltenham last month. Andrew Lynch steered Sizing Europe to 15 of his 17 victories over fences and will cherish the big days they enjoyed together. He said: ” He’s been unbelievable for my career and we had some fantastic days. “There were the two winners at Cheltenham and then for him to go and win in Punchestown last year just capped it all off. “It’s been a brilliant training performance from Henry and all the lads in the yard to keep him so fresh and well for so long. “He was a brilliant jumper. I think he only fell once in his life and that was over hurdles with Ruby (Walsh) riding him one day. “He was just a brilliant horse with a massive heart.” In all Sizing Europe won 22 of his 45 races, placing on a further 13 occasions and earning over £1.3million in prize-money. The 13-year-old won eight Grade One events as he graced the jumping scene for over nine years, including successive triumphs at the Cheltenham Festival in the 2010 Arkle Trophy and 2011 Queen Mother Champion Chase. Sizing Europe also filled the runner-up spot in the Champion Chase at Prestbury Park twice, while other notable victories included two wins in the Punchestown Champion Chase, success in the 2011 Tingle Creek at Sandown and a stunning display in the 2008 Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown.
Latest posts by Mike Mandell (see all) ELLSWORTH — As the sun’s rays seeped through the clouds late Saturday morning, the light shining down upon Kinsley Ray Archer’s name provided the perfect backdrop for a moment of peace.An hour earlier, the last batch of participants had crossed the Kinsley Ray Memorial 5K finish line behind the Down East Family YMCA’s James Russell Wiggins Center. With more walkers than runners on hand, the event unfolded not as a competitive race to the finish but as a joyous parade of smiling faces and sky-blue T-shirts down Shore Road and Pond Avenue.Although these few minutes of silence, in which a small crowd huddled around a tree and engraved bench dedicated to Kinsley Ray in Knowlton Park, were in stark contrast to the earlier scenes at DEFY, they were no less powerful; after a morning that began with gray skies, the final image was that of the sun gleaming off a memorial to a baby girl those around her called “a ray of sunshine.”Those moments and more captivated an entire city Saturday morning as the Ellsworth community came together for a day few will ever forget. A DEFY record of 650 people participated in the race in honor of Kinsley Ray, who died of acute myeloid leukemia at the age of 4 months Dec. 10.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“People rally together in times like this, and the generosity is amazing,” Holly Archer, Kinsley Ray’s mother, said following the race. “I’ve seen people that I haven’t seen in years and people that have traveled states to be here. It shows the type of community we have here.”The stage for the Kinsley Ray Memorial 5K was set in the weeks following her passing as DEFY’s Robin Clarke was brainstorming ideas to support Holly and her husband, Brian “Buddy” Archer. Clarke started by reaching out to one of the Archers’ best friends, Chelsea Sawyer.At the time, Clarke and Sawyer weren’t certain as to what they wanted to do to help. Yet with one of DEFY’s biggest road race’s, the Jerry Kaufman 5K, set to enter its 12th year in 2019, the timing felt right for the race to take on a new cause. The Kaufman family gave the OK for the event to take a new form, and preparations began.As co-organizers, Clarke and Sawyer planned for the event to be a big one from the start. Yet neither could have dreamed of the turnout the race generated or the lengths to which everyone from family friends to random strangers would go to show their support for the couple.“When you look around and see just how many people came out for this, it really makes my jaw drop,” Sawyer said. “So many people went the extra mile to make this happen because this family really deserves it.”DEFY Fitness Director Robin Clarke lists off award winners following the Kinsley Ray Memorial 5K on May 4.

Local businesses were present to provide coffee, a post-race lunch, a giant tent and other amenities free of charge.Bar Harbor’s Judson Cake finished with a time of 16 minutes, 37 seconds to win the race, and Dara Knapp of Columbia Falls reached the chute in 20:27 to finish as the top female runner. The first-, second- and third-place runners in each age bracket received medals.The top runners, though, knew this event was about more than personal records, hardware or bragging rights. The cause hit close to home for one of the award recipients, Tamera Murphy, and the Trenton native spoke up when she was called forward to collect her medal.“I’m a five-year lymphoma survivor, and I have MS,” Murphy, who placed second in the women’s 60-69 age group, told the crowd. “If I can run it, anybody can.”As Cake, an officer with the Bar Harbor Police Department, received his trophy, he pointed to a police emblem on his sweat-stained shirt. The gesture was one of solidarity with Brian Archer, a deputy with the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office.With the bulk of Archer’s co-workers there in support, the line of deputy cruisers stretched the entire length of the Ellsworth Elementary-Middle School parking lot. After all the family had been through, no one was going to miss this uplifting occasion.Judson Cake of Bar Harbor points to a police badge on his shirt after the Kinsley Memorial 5K on May 4 at DEFY.

ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELL“Seeing the whole community come out like this is everything we wanted and more,” Sawyer said. “It just really warms your heart.”Clarke said earlier in the week that Saturday’s race could be either a one-time event or an annual race in Kinsley Ray’s memory. That decision, she said, is up to the Archer family.“It could just be something we do this year, or it could be for the next 20 years,” Clarke said. “When that time comes, we’ll find another good cause.”Saturday, though, was a time to remember rather than look ahead. From the starting line to the packed awards ceremony in the DEFY gymnasium to the somber moments in Knowlton Park, there were hugs, there were tears and there was healing for a couple that needed it most.As they took a moment to reflect on it all, Holly and Brian Archer gave each other a long embrace in the middle of the park. On day filled with emotions of all kinds, it was just one reminder of the daughter they will keep in their hearts forever and the community that gave them five hours they will remember the rest of their lives.“It’s just so overwhelming,” Holly said. “The kindness everyone has shown us just truly is amazing. It’s what’s gotten us through this whole time.” Latest Posts Bio Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander.

Phelps 10, Reichenberger 5, Nance 14, Pettegrew 6, Snipes 13, King 14. Mulvane10974â€”30 Follow us on Twitter. Wellington 64 Mulvane 30 Mulvane: Dulaney 9, Leclair 3, Paker 4, Myers 2, Chancellor 7, Myers 2, Blaine 4, Price 1. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” A slow first quarter did not squash Wellingtonâ€™s hopes of winning their first state tournament bid since 1952. The Crusaders, as expected, beat Mulvane 63-30 Thursday night at Ollie Thomas gymnasium in Winfield.Wellington will play Rose Hill on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Rose Hill beat top seed Winfield 65-55.The Crusaders staved off an early first quarter slump in which it trailed much of the first quarter to take control of the game in the second quarter and eventually doubling up on the outmatched Wildcats. Wellington would outscore Mulvane 50-20 in the final three quarters for the win. The last three minutes of the game was a running clock.Â â€œThe kids were so keyed up all week for this game that when they got on the floor that had that deer in the headlight look,â€ said Brian Buchanan, Wellington head boys basketball. â€œOur rebounding was really, really bad early on. But I will hand it to this group. They have been resilient all year and tonight was no exception. I think we may have evened rebounding out in the end.â€Wellington had trouble early with Mulvaneâ€™s size inside. James Chancellor, a 6-3, sophomore; and Troy Baker, a 6-6, junior were taking the gentlemen Dukes to task in the paint in the early going. Mulvane briefly held a 6-3 lead, and Trevor Nance was assessed his second foul quickly. Nance spent much of the first half on the bench.But Buchananâ€™s troops spread the court with the 6-5 senior sitting the bench. And Wellington would slowly pull away.Wellingtonâ€™s late first quarter early second quarter surge could be attributed to its two freshmen: Ian King and A.J. Snipes, who poured in 14 and 13 points respectively and were outstanding defensively.â€œThe freshman came to play in this game,â€ Buchanan said. â€œThey really have played some quality varsity minutes all season and tonight it really paid off for them.â€A key moment in the game came when Chancellor was called for his third foul late in the second quarter on a rebound. He didnâ€™t like the call and the ref assessed him a technical – making it his fourth foul. The Mulvane coach would never put him back in the game.Once Nance warmed up, Mulvane had no answers for him in the second half and Wellington slowly pulled away. Baker would eventually foul out and Nance, despite going scoreless in the first quarter, ended up with 14 points.
