62 SPORT FRIDAY OCTOBER 10 2014 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 FOOTROT FLATS Gower ruined by ban FROM BACK PAGE Hensler said the two-year disqualification was towards the higher end of the penalties stewards could hand out under the rules of racing, but a precedent had to be set. Theres really no penalty to reflect on for this substance, but its a substance that shouldnt be in a horse at any stage, whether it be racing or in the stables, he said. It certainly is a serious penalty. Mr Gower has lost his livelihood for two years, so thats not a matter to be taken lightly by the stewards, but thats what we believe is appropriate to send a message and ensure it doesnt happen again. Gowers appeal into the severity of the two-year ban will be heard by the NT Racing Appeals Tribunal, chaired by Tom Pauling QC, at Enterprise House in Knuckey St at 10am on November 24.

Dogs have been racing at the track for more than 50 years but, according to club secretary and race caller Craig Sant, Sundays switch to live coverage of Sky Racing is a groundbreaking move. We started getting together all the required information and talking with Sky about 12 months ago, Sant said. We did not have the infra structure in place to get the pictures out so we had to sort that out. A year and $100,000 later it is all systems go for beaming live images to an Australian and international audience. The most important aspect was establishing a microwave link using a laser from Winnellie Park to the Fannie Bay racecourse. We had to link into the Fannie Bay Sky Channel link that they use on their race days, Sant said. DGA president Nick Day said the first two races on Sunday would be on Sky Racing Two with the final three on Sky One. It will bring more exposure for the club, Day said. We have a lot of owners who send their dogs to Darwin that are not quite good enough to make the grade down south. They ring up on the Saturday or Monday to find out how their dog went. Day also expects live televised racing will generate additional revenue. Extra betting and the attraction of more sponsors will also lift the sport here, he said. Sant also hopes that coverage on Sky will also encourage interstate trainers to move dogs up to Darwin. I think we will have a bit more interest from down south with people who might look to send dogs up to Darwin who are not making it down there, he said. The first race on Sunday will be at 6.35pm. Wilson facing old friends FOR new Adelaide 36ers import Jamar Wilson, there almost was an air of inevitability he would run into Cairns sooner, rather than later. The New Yorker with the super ball skills spent three years with the Taipans and was a league MVP runner-up, but tonight will run out in Sixers blue for their NBL seasonopener at Adelaide Arena. And one of the flat-out stars for the 2014-15 Taipans is slick American playmaker Scottie Wilbekin, late of the storied Florida Gators and with the game that one day should see him in the NBA. My wife was the first to mention it (Cairns being first opponent on the schedule) and I just want to get it done and dusted, Wilson said. As far as it being awkward, yes it will be. But is it something Im looking forward to? Yes, as an athlete and a competitor. More to the point, Cairns retooled in the off-season with Wilbekin and Torrey Craig two outstanding imports and former Sturt junior Corey Maynard joining the Orange after his stint at college. Its our first home game and its a home game against a team which could be pushing for a (play-off) spot, 36ers coach Joey Wright said. Teysy (Brendan Teys) and Creeky (Mitch Creek) are playing better than I expected and BJ (Anthony) is playing better but I expected that. As for Wilson starting out in his new job against his old team, Wright was philosophical. You definitely experience a level of anxiety when you play against a team you were with for years, he said. But its about enjoying the ball game.

Taipans import Torrey Craig can throw down a wicked dunk, Scottie Wilbekins moves get him to the hoop and Cam Tragardh can fill it up. Sixers fans will love Jamar Wilsons ball skills and Daequon Montreals power, but watch out for Mitch Creek in the open court.
