400 horses compete at Morgan Park

MORE than 60 teams and 400 horses will gouge the grounds in an attempt for glory at Morgan Park this weekend for the Barastoc Interstate Polocrosse Series and Shell Cup Championship.

Among the teams from Queensland, New South Wales and New Zealand was Clifton Polocrosse president George Cameron who has mounted his steed for the game since 1977.

“The field is one of the best, really great condition,” Cameron said.

Cameron started a genetic trend with his family as the proud patriarch has watched his children and grandchildren play polocrosse.

“It’s definitely in the blood,” he said.

“My grandson Christopher Hall was in the under-21 mixed team which won at the national titles at Ballarat and Bradley was in the under-21 open.”

While Cameron was in strapping maroon for Queensland, Roma native Christie Edwards painted B-Rat her lamb green for her polocrosse team.

“Well you can’t have dogs here but lambs are OK,” Cameron laughed.

The competition started yesterday but the program is set to heat up today at 8am with the club and interstate games and 5.30pm to 9pm for the interstate competition.

Tomorrow about 8am will see the semi-finals and the finals. The canteen will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with bar open to cater for those who like a cold brew.

Admission is $10 for a day/night pass and $6 for night entry with children walking in for free.
