JOHN HENRY TURF CHAMPIONSHIP STAKES QUOTES – SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2016

first_img            HOWARD GROSSMAN (Stable Manager for part-owner Sharon Alesia): “He’s probably the most honest horse we’ve ever owned. This horse is one hell of an honest horse.”            GARY STEVENS, ASHLEYLUVSSUGAR, WINNER: “This was a great race for him. The speed was down on the inside and it set up nicely. He’s better with a horse in front of him. He’s not very big but he’s full of energy, loves his job and he loves Santa Anita.“I’m excited about the Breeders’ Cup. He’s stepping up in company but he loves a mile and a half. The luxury today was that we didn’t have to win and he’s even better at a mile and a half. This was pretty easy on him and he was looking for even more room to run pulling up.” TRAINER QUOTES JOCKEY QUOTEScenter_img             PETER EURTON, ASHLEYLUVSSUGAR, WINNER: “This is his kind of track. You gotta think this horse is just full of heart. When he’s healthy like he is right now he’s great. Last year, he was a little body sore and I think the trip back east got to him but when he’s healthy, he’s tough to get by.“The six hole helped us out a lot, we got to see what was going on to the inside of us. There was a little bumping going on at the beginning so Gary put him out there wide and it was easier for him to relax.” NOTES: The winning owners are Sharon Alesia of Carlsbad; Michael Mellen (Bran Jam Stable) of Connecticut; and Joe Ciaglia of Upland.last_img read more

Learning to do through SAE programs

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Meredith Oglesby, OCJ FFA reporterFrom growing crops to managing a herd of livestock, students have a range of projects for their supervised agricultural experiences (SAE). These projects allow students to engage in real-world agricultural activities and gain career ready skills outside of the classroom.From the inspiration of her agricultural education instructor and with the help of her grandpa, Lauren Wright, from the Miami East MVCTC FFA Chapter, markets and manages one acre of sweet corn.“My SAE experience has made me realize what an awesome community that I live in. The support from family, friends, and community members has been so supportive in many ways,” Wright said.Wright set the goal to make the business the best it can be.“I have started working towards this goal by fixing every error that has popped up so far and by sometimes just being one step ahead,” Wright said.She really enjoys the opportunity to meet new customers at her house or at the farmer’s markets. The experience has taught Wright the value of time management and she has grown more independent.“This SAE has developed me to be a leader through running my own business and it has taught me how to manage a business to run smoothly,” Wright said. “It has also helped me with my communication skills by working with customers.”The hard work to maintain and manage this business has allowed Wright to learn and grow as a high school student.“My proudest moment with my SAE is that as a highly involved high school student, I am able to make an impact on our local agricultural community,” Wright said.Carlie Cluxton, from the Peebles FFA Chapter, always knew she would be involved in helping with the family farm and through her FFA SAE program she has learned more about the importance of the agricultural industry. She helps run the family farm by managing their herd of commercial cattle, farming hay and grain, as well as managing her own small herd of registered Limousin cattle.“This summer I hope to gain more experience helping my dad in the fields so I can have more knowledge in the grain aspect of our farm,” Cluxton said.For the herd of Limousin cattle, she is able to make decisions for feeding, when to breed, and how to manage the herd. Cluxton wants to add two more Limousin cattle to her herd currently consisting of two cows and one bull.“I have been saving up money ever since I started 4-H and I began selling calves from my herd. I really hope to buy at least one heifer this fall, but that all depends on how my fair project turns out and how much profit I will receive from selling my calves,” Cluxton said.Carlie Cluxton enjoys taking care of the calves on her family farm. Photo provided by Carlie Cluxton.Growing through the challenges she has faced has allowed Cluxton to become a better leader and owner of her operation.“In the agricultural industry there are many hardships, but I believe that I am part of something greater and will take a few bad days if it means filling the need of something bigger than myself,” Cluxton said.Cluxton enjoys sharing about her hard work and dedication to the farm with others.“I just know my face lights up because I get excited that someone is interested in something that I can advocate for,” Cluxton said.Through her projects she has gained skills of money management, commitment and responsibility.“Through my SAE I have been able to take pride in my own operation and learn how I can reap the benefits of the labor that I put into anything,” Cluxton said. “Being able to see the benefits has allowed me to become more motivated in getting to the end product in any project I set out to complete.”last_img read more

Stop Being Defensive

first_imgSometimes you need to give your dream client proof that you’re the right partner. They challenges you with a concern, and you want to make your case. You want to resolve all of their concerns, offering proof point after proof point in an attempt to convince them that their doubts are unfounded.But being defensive can cause your client to defend his concerns. You cause them to continue to find reasons to object to what you’re saying and to defend their assertions. When you’re defensive, you cause your prospective client to entrench in their own defense when you really want to open them up to possibilities and new ideas.There are lots of occasions when you need to offer proof. But that isn’t always the right approach. Sometimes when your client is incredulous, the right response is to ask questions.Your dream client might say something like, “We’re not sure if you’re big enough to handle our business. ”You’re gut reaction might be rattle off the number of locations your company has, the size of the organization, and all the capabilities you have to serve that client. But another approach, a different approach, my be to ask a question. You might ask, “What would you need to see to be hundred percent confident in choosing a company our size?” You’re not defensive about your the size of your company, you’re not desperate, and your dream client is forced to consider the question.Or a prospective client might say something like, “I’m not exactly sure your solution would work.” Instead of defending your solution, blasting the client with all of the reasons that you believe your solution will work, you might say something that sounds like this, ” What would we need to change in order for you to be certain our solution would work? This doesn’t suggest that you’re not confident, it doesn’t suggest that your client’s belief is wrong, and it opens a dialogue about their beliefs and what might change them.One of the real benefits of not being defensive when challenged is that it can help to get the real issue out on the table. Instead guessing at what evidence or proof might be necessary to win your prospective client over, you let them tell you what they need to see. If you can provide it to them you have an excellent chance of winning their business. Being defensive and arguing your point can make winning much less likely. Essential Reading!
