Rac­ing dream

Central and North Burnett Times - - FRONT PAGE -

BRID­GET Farmer and Pink Rib­bon won line hon­ours in the billy goat race.

The 10-year-old said the ex­pe­ri­ence at Monto’s an­nual camel races was ex­cit­ing.

“I was ner­vous be­fore the race but it was re­ally fun,” she said.

“I thought Iwas go­ing to run into the fence. It was great hear­ing ev­ery­one cheer­ing for us.”

Brid­get said she­was keen to race again, and her tip on how to race billy goats was “just keep hit­ting them on the tail and they’ll run”.

Pic­tured with race day judge Arnie Din­gle, the St Therese’s Year 5 stu­dent said she hoped to ride the camels when she is older.
