Fun at spring draft

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

THE first an­nual Spring Draft was run at Ban­croft re­cently.

The grounds were pic­ture per­fect af­ter re­cent rain, and with a new arena fence and some yard work.

The week­end in late Septem­ber started off with the novice draft and 167 runs on a good line of the Hamp­son fam­ily cat­tle saw some great draft­ing.

Judge Rob Jenk­in­son soon split them and the win­ner was lo­cal rider Joel Muir­head, rid­ing Mac’s Smokin Blue.

There was a four-way tie for sec­ond place.

Sam Pen­gelly from Cal­liope was the win­ner of the ju­ve­nile draft, and Tom Pow­nall rode his grey mare All That Jazz to win the ju­nior draft.

The first two rounds of the three round open draft were com­pleted on Satur­day.

Ni­cholas Mark­well rode mare Bon Jovi’s Mu­sic to win the draft.

The win gave Mark­well a per­sonal tally of three wins in a row.

Sec­ond place was Peter Wal­lace.

Ard­moor Cat­tle Com­pany sup­plied the cat­tle for the draft.

In the maiden draft, judge Greg Wal­lace gave the win­ning points to Bob Black, with sec­ond place go­ing to Kristy Haber­mann.

The last event was the Re­stricted Open, with John Lin­den­meyer judg­ing.

The win­ner­was Stan Pow­ers’ horse Disco and in sec­ond place, rid­den by Peter Wal­lace, was his mare Per­fect Lady.

A great week­end of safe cam­p­draft­ing was had and the com­mit­tee thanked ev­ery­one.
