first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESJOE TALAMO, MUCHO GUSTO, WINNER: “I knew we wouldn’t get an easy lead, so I looked around to see who was going to go with us. I just wanted to get him out of there and get him comfortable. It’s amazing how well this horse relaxes.  He’s drawn the rail a lot and he’s still able to relax after he gets serious pressure. Today, he took two or three breathers around the turn and then he took off. He’s a pleasure to ride. Anybody could ride this horse. He definitely is really good seven-eighths to a mile, he can for sure go two turns. After he broke his maiden (first time out at Los Alamitos on Sept. 20), I started working him a lot in Del Mar. He never acted like a two-year-old, he acted like an older horse.”TRAINER QUOTESPHIL OVIEDO, TRAINER OF MANHATTAN UP, SECOND:  “I’m feeling really good. It looked like speed was holding all day, so for him to finish up like he did was pretty impressive. I might run him around two turns before the meet is over.”NOTES: The winning owner is Michael Lund Petersen who resides in Reisterstown, Maryland.Michael L.

Power shops for hours at a time, while your child sits virtually ignored and unstimulated in her stroller? Showers your child in love, affection and patience?” asks clients on the Web site. Jill Starishevsky, founder of HowsMyNanny, declined to reveal how many people have signed up, but she said she has members across the country, including many in California. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Aside from nanny cams and online nannywatch sites, entrepreneurs have come up with a third way for parents to keep tabs on their child-care providers., based in Canoga Park, and, started by a prosecutor and mother in New York, issue mini-license plates that attach to strollers. This makes it easy for people to report good or bad nanny behavior to members. Membership for HowsMyNanny costs $50 per year; costs $10 a month. Both companies have built-in safeguards to prevent false reports and allow reporters to remain anonymous to the member. With both systems, the person reporting an incident can go to the Web site and the information is e-mailed to the member. Both emphasize they are not out to get a nanny fired and that they want people to send positive alerts as well as negative. last_img read more
