KONA GOLD STAKES QUOTES-SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 2019

first_img TYLER BAZE, ALL OUT BLITZ, SECOND: “He felt good going around there, I just wanted to make sure I got a jump on the closers. He (Cistron) was rolling and I was cruising. So when he went I thought I’d go with him, but he just pulled away.TRAINER QUOTESJOHN SADLER, CISTRON, WINNER: “This horse ran well on the dirt as a 3-year-old.  He actually won a stake going a mile and a sixteenth ($150,000 Northern Spur Stakes at Oaklawn Park on April 15, 2017). He’s been (running) on grass but trains well on dirt. I expected him to be in front. When we saw this race was coming up a little light and there wasn’t that much speed, we decided to supplement. It’s been great, Hronis racing is as good a brand as you’ll see in racing, the safety and welfare of the horses is paramount with them. We start from there when we go out and look for horses and hopefully we keep developing a lot of (them).“Gift Box worked sensational this morning he’ll be pointing toward the Gold Cup here in May, Catapult looks beautiful we are pointing toward the Shoemaker Mile in May, Nolo Contesto, we will probably drop him back to the Affirmed stakes here in June, so we have a lot of nice stock and were just going roll them out periodically.”OWNER QUOTESKOSTA HRONIS, PART OWNER, CISTRON: “He always works nice on the dirt and he seems to like this track. He’s a pretty versatile horse. I guess not having the hill available (hillside turf course) made it an easy choice to put him back on dirt. It seems to be his distance. If he gets a nice easy lead he’s usually pretty tough . . . It’s good to have Victor (Espinoza) back on board. He works well with John. They’re a good team.”NOTES: The winning owners are Kosta and Peter Hronis, Hronis Racing, LLC.Hronis Racing’s Cistron and jockey Victor Espinoza win the Grade II, $200,000 Kona Gold Stakes, Saturday, April 20, 2019 at Santa Anita Park, Arcadia CA. © BENOIT PHOTO JOCKEY QUOTESVICTOR ESPINOZA, CISTRON, WINNER: “The important thing for me and the horse today was that he broke running.  He was able to take control right away and at the sixteenth pole, I said ‘Where is everybody?’  He ran great all the way to the wire, John is an awesome trainer, he really got this horse ready for this race and he made my job a lot easier. It is the best feeling ever to be back and ride amazing horses and win amazing races, I’m just blessed to be here.”       last_img read more

Bosch Takes Over EMmotive Electric Motor Joint Venture With Daimler

first_imgThe joint venture agreement envisioned that Bosch will be able to take full control of the company by the acquisition of Daimler’s shares and this is what happened. The purchase price or any further details of the acquisition are not disclosed and the deal is subject to approval by the antitrust authorities.“Right from the establishment of the joint venture, Bosch secured an option to acquire the shares. A complete takeover was thus already an option in the joint venture agreement. The change in ownership structure will not have any immediate effect on the roughly 340 EM-motive associates currently working at the locations in Stuttgart and Hildesheim, Germany.”“The motor is a key component in the electrical powertrain: The more efficiently it works, the less energy it consumes, which not only means greater range, but also significantly lower operating costs. Even now, the electromobility business is growing rapidly, and by the start of the next decade at the latest, it will have developed into a mass market.” EM-motive – production of electric motorsBosch intends to expand the business and supply electric motors for various manufacturers on its own. It’s open question how good are the opportunities as with mass-volume, car manufacturers often launches its own motor production.We also note that Daimler resigned from EM-motive in its latest electric smart (fortwo and forfour), which received motors from Renault. Other customer – PSA Group (Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Opel/Vauxhall) – already announced plans for motor production in France (with help of Nidec). Porsche probably will try motors from Volkswagen Group we guess.Dr. Stefan Hartung, member of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH and chairman of its Mobility Solutions business sector said:“For Bosch, the complete acquisition of EM-motive is the next logical step on the path to becoming the market leader for electromobility. It’s a chance to establish an even broader presence in the market,”Dr. Mathias Pillin, the member of the Powertrain Solutions executive management responsible for the electric-vehicle market segment said:“The company’s electric motors already feature in vehicles made by Daimler, Porsche, Fiat, Volvo, Peugeot, and StreetScooter, among others. With this move, Bosch above all intends to acquire new customers in the rapidly growing global market,”. Bosch acquires EM-motive and intends to supply motors to various carmakersBosch announced that it will take over the electric motor manufacturer EM-motive – the fifty-fifty joint venture established with Daimler.EM-motive was originally set up in 2011 to share costs of developments of electric motors and make it economical to enter electric-motor manufacturing, which was especially important in the beginning when volumes were low. Since then, EM-motive produced some 450,000 electric motors for all-electric, plug-in hybrid and hybrid cars from Daimler, Porsche, Fiat, Volvo, Peugeot, and StreetScooter.See Also Audi Starts Production Of E-tron Electric Motors Argonne’s HyMag Technology Could Boost EV Efficiency PSA Prepares To Produce Electric Motors From 2019 EM-motive – production of electric motors Source: Electric Vehicle News Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on January 27, 2019Categories Electric Vehicle Newslast_img read more
