THERE is a long way to go but Goondiwindi rider Terry Hall is the early favourite to win his third Black Toyota Warwick Gold Cup.

Yesterday, Hall scored 92 on Hazelwood Conman to take the lead.

Terry said campdrafting was part of life for his family with wife Christine, son Ben, daughter Jane Lee, son-in-law Cameron Lee and daughter-in-law Jaye Hall all competing.

He rates Hazelwood Conman as the best of eight horses he is working this week.

After being on the road droving for nine months a year, Terry and Christine are now spending more time at Goondiwindi looking after cattle on two stations.

"Now we have more time to train young horses," he said.

As to his chances of a third cup win, Terry said he would need a fair bit of luck.

He has been competing in Warwick since 1966 only missing three campdrafts down the years.

"Campdrafting is part of our life - we breed, train and work cattle with horses," Terry said.

Judge Geoff Beard reckons a rider would need three scores close to 90 to win.
