Skippy wins on Australia Day

from w.
And they're racing at Hanging Rock! Twice a year there are picnic races at a picturesque place near Woodend, famous for the setting of a book and film about the mysterious disappearance of schoolgirls. Anyway usually there are about 6000 people enjoying the sunshine and horses at the race meeting, but today, Skippy and a band of kangaroos changed all of that by hopping about the track and even running down the strait. Organizers tried their best but the races had to be abandoned as the sweet grass was too enticing for the kangas. Hoorah, I don't like horse-racing anyway.

Yes, Annie, it must have been funny. Even the announcer got into the spirit, they say, telling people to bet on the kangaroos.
