The attack happened as
the Daken’s were travelling south at about
80km/h
through
Heavitree Gap.
Ross said if the rock
had hit a motorcyclist it
would have killed them
instantly.
Julie said the near
miss had rattled her
family.
She said: ‘‘If our son
had of been in the back
it would have seriously
injured him.
‘‘There’s no lighting
out there and I didn’t
realise what had happened.
‘‘All I heard was the
bang.
‘‘It’s just a pain in the

‘‘I didn’t see anything,
that’s why it was so
scary.’’
Ross

the
smashed rear passenger side window was
worth about $500.
The Daken’s insurance cover will help
them recover the cost,

A major Aboriginal

another week to challenge the Federal Government appointment
of an administrator.
The Federal Court
ruled on Friday to suspend an adminstrator
being
appointed
to
Nyangatjatjara
Corporation until a hearing
on May 17.
Nyangatjatjara Corporation is the parent

An

last month after concerns over financial and
governance issues were
raised by a Federal

YOUNG Ronan Bloomfield and
Tinnean Liddle were delighted to
test drive the new pedal car at
Congress Child Care.
Native title group Lhere Artepe
donated the car after winning it at a
Camp Quality fundraising auction.
Congress director Stephanie Bell
said the pink machine was a big hit
with four-year-olds Ronan and
Tinnean and the other kids.
The auction was just one fundraiser. Another was a cycle race to
Uluru between Alice Springs firefighters and prison officers. The
475km bike race was aimed at raising
money for Camp Quality, a nonprofit organisation that brings hope
and happiness to children living
with cancer.
Camp Quality NT area manager
Heather Helms said about $17,000
was raised at the auction.
She said: ‘‘There were 23 auction
items and a dozen raffle items and it
was fantastic to raise so much. Congress is an important part of health
services in Alice Springs and we
wanted Aboriginal people to be included in the Camp Quality program.’’
Heather said Camp Quality was
working on a new program for remote
communities.
Extra police keep

EXTRA
police
flooded Alice Springs at
the weekend to keep
tabs on the official
opening of the Finks
motorcycle
gang’s

Trevor Bell, now retired
said extra police had
been called in.
Police media officer
Trevor Bell confirmed
extra
police
were
brought in owing to the
‘‘big

of
bikies in town.
A source revealed
that police did half

Finks’ clubhouse in

The

heavily-armed police.
The source said the
bikies had come from
interstate, some from
Brisbane and Adelaide.
Police also allegedly
tailed Finks members
after they flew in to
Alice Springs Airport.
Police could not be
contacted last night to
confirm details and
Southern Region Commander Mark Coffey
declined to be interviewed on the matter.
Also at the weekend
Alice Springs police
nabbed almost 20 drinkdrivers in a two-day
road blitz.
Senior
Sergeant
Darrell Kerr said police
maintained a heavy
presence in marked and
unmarked cars, carrying out random breath
tests on Friday and Saturday night.
He said 17 drink
drivers were caught.
Some of them were also
found to be driving
without a licence and
driving an uninsured
vehicle.

Sen-Sgt Kerr said of

eight during patrols on
Saturday night.
The
blood-alcohol
readings ranged from
.075 and .207 per cent.
The highest was more
than four times the
legal limit.
The drivers were aged
from 22 to 51.
Concern
Sen-Sgt Kerr said the
large number of drink
drivers was of concern
and unacceptable.
‘‘It is a bit of a concern, as it is quite a large
number in such a small
town,’’ he said.
‘‘These drivers are
not only breaking the
law, they are placing
themselves and other
road users at extreme
risk.
‘‘It is obvious the
message that police will
catch drink-drivers is
not getting through.’’
Sen-Sgt Kerr said patrols
in
the
Alice
Springs region will remain vigilant.
‘‘The police will show
no mercy and anyone
who drinks alcohol and
drives a vehicle will get
caught, so be warned,’’
he said.
‘‘We urge people not
to drink and drive, and
go with the safer options of catching a cab
or nominating someone
to be Sober Bob.
‘‘We also encourage
anyone who suspects a
drunk driver on the
road to notify police.’’

Father Aseli Raass, who provides
pastoral care to town camp residents,
said the plan would not address the
cause of the problems.
Under the new laws, drinking in
public places is to be made a criminal
offence with offenders made to face
a new alcohol court.
Some public areas will remain
exempt from the law, including the
Alice Springs Telegraph Station.
Details of the move are being
drafted as legislation, expected to be
introduced within two months.
Chief Minister Clare Martin announced the dry town move on
Friday after months of debate by the
town council.
Federal Indigenous Affairs Minister Mal Brough also unveiled a $30
million overhaul of town camps and
infrastructure upgrades.
But he said: ‘‘I feel with all the good
intentions of governments, there still
seems to be an extraordinary missing
link in trying to tackle the root
causes of the problems.
‘‘Tossing in another $30 million is
not enough to tackle the real issues
and making Alice Springs a dry town
doesn’t confront the complexities of
human nature.
‘‘How about reducing the number
of alcohol outlets or funding programs that empower indigenous
people to do something for themselves?’’
NT Police Association president
Vince Kelly said officer’s workloads
would increase if drinking in public
places was made a criminal offence.
Mr Kelly said: ‘‘We will have to
wait for the details to find out how
effective it will be in dealing with
long-term drunks.’’
The tourism industry was also
waiting for details of the dry town
plan, saying it may help in marketing
the town as a safe place to visit.

Mr Cavanagh referred the

a crime may have been committed.

Urban is the ‘‘mystery’’ third person going through to the next stage

Idol publicists kept Urban’s success a secret from the local media
but Urban said half of Alice Springs
knew.
She said: ‘‘It’s a small town,
everybody probably thought I was
lying since I wasn’t in Friday’s
paper.’’
The piano teacher said she was
surprised to hear she would be
going through to the next stage,
especially since her decision to go to
the auditions at Ooraminna was a
last-minute thing.
She said: ‘‘I wasn’t going to go at
all so I wasn’t nervous and didn’t
take it seriously, especially when I
choked on a fly while singing.
‘‘When they told me I was going
through I was surprised because I
think I have a really unusual voice
and never really considered it.
‘‘I felt embarrassed at first because I went there with a proposition for an ‘Original Idol’.
‘‘But now I’m excited, the audition just gave me the biggest buzz.
‘‘It can take music artists years to
get recognised, so it doesn’t matter
how far I get because I’ll make some
new contacts.’’
Tashka will join Alice Springs
youngster Jordan Van Der Shuit
and Jessica Mauboy from Darwin
when they travel to Sydney later

Changes to Northern Territor y
Shortwave Radio Ser vices
The ABC would like to advise that it is in the process of upgrading its Alice Springs,
Katherine and Tennant Creek shortwave Local Radio services. This work is being
undertaken to provide greater reliability of these services.
Each service will be required to be switched off for an extended period while
replacement transmitters are installed. The work on the Tennant Creek transmitter has
now been completed and the service has recommenced broadcasting. The Alice
Springs (Roe Creek) service is now being upgraded and will be turned off for an
extended period from Tuesday 9 May.
From this date those listeners who usually tune to the Alice Springs shortwave
service will need to retune to the Tennant Creek service to continue to receive ABC
Local Radio. Listeners who have problems tuning to the Tennant Creek service
during the day should attempt to tune to 11880kHz.
Further announcements will be made once a timetable for the Katherine upgrades
are confirmed.
The ABC apologises for any inconvenience caused by these changes. Please contact

NT is not a
police state
Sir, Penny Bowen, the outraged writer of ‘‘Don’t
kids have rights’’ (Centralian Advocate, 28/4/06) is
trying to convince us that kid’s ‘‘rights’’ outweigh
those of the community.
After years of putting up with naive, anti-social
lobbyists pushing the ‘‘rights’’ of criminals or
others interested in causing grief in the community, I think it’s time for ordinary law-abiding
people’s rights to become fashionable.
If the police use whatever method they consider
fit to enforce law and order, then they are
protecting the community and using taxpayers’
money properly.
The writer also asks if this is a police state?
No, it isn’t.

of its kind.

Ian said: ‘‘It was sitting in

‘‘He visited the Road Transport Hall of Fame last year
and decided it was a good
thing to do.
‘‘There’s a bit of sadness
because it’s been in the family
since 1973, but this way other
people can see and enjoy it and
it will last a long time here.’’
Ian and his brother plan to
return to Alice in a few years
time to drive the ute in a Road
Transport Hall of Fame parade.
Hall of Fame president Liz
Martin said the HQ ute would
be displayed in one of two
sheds to be built later this
year.
She said: ‘‘Everything we
have in the museum has been
donated but this one has come

Airport police set
to double in 2007
By LEE STEHBENS
POLICE numbers will double at
Alice Springs Airport by next
March, the Australian Federal
Police’s airport commander has
revealed.
Detective
Superintendent
Marko Dokmanovic said that
would take the number of officers
stationed at the airport to 30.
He said: ‘‘The increase is happening because we are getting
more people on deck to perform
different roles.
‘‘So we are getting an increase
in staff performing different
roles, for example uniform policing.’’
Det-Supt Dokmanovic said the
increase in staff would provide the
AFP with a bigger visual presence
at the airport.
DATE: 9-MAY-2006
Det-Supt Dokmanovic took up
his new role on March 6.
The 43-year-old from Geelong,
Victoria, has been with the AFP
for 23 years.
He is one of 11 new airport police
commanders at airports around
Australia.
The increase in numbers of
officers for Alice Springs was
announced earlier this year ‘‘to
oversee crime and security matters at the 11 Counter Terrorism
First Response airports.
AFP
Commissioner
Mick
Keelty said in February the move
would remove any ambiguity in
terms of command and control of

Bone density check Go on, spoil
your mum
on Sunday
It’s essential for
women over 40
EVERY woman over 40 should have a bone
density test to assess the risk of fractures due to
osteoporosis.
PUB: CADV
DATE: 9-MAY-2006
PAGE: 14
Dr Max Holsman, medical adviser to Australian
Bone Density Testing Centre, said: ‘‘In Australia
osteoprosis affects one in three women.’’
‘‘Women can rapidly lose bone density at the
onset of menopause.’’
One easy method of checking is a 15-minute
ultrasound bone density test.
Book an appointment while the ABDT are
available in Alice Springs next week.
Checks will be held at Forester’s Chemmart in
the Coles Complex from Tuesday, May 16.
Costing $55 per consultation (pensioners $50),
this sophisticated technology provides reliable
assessment of fracture risk.
With a focus on education, results are immediate and explained by ABDT Centre’s trained
nurse.
Osteoporosis means your bones become fragile
and in danger of breaking under the slightest
strain.
By 65 both men and women tend to lose bone
density at the same rate.
Dr Holsman said: ‘‘We would like to see
Australians look after their bone health in the
same way they monitor blood pressure and
cholesterol levels.’’
Bone density testing helps to inform the community regarding the importance of lifelong bone
health and prevention of osteoporosis.
It is a good idea to have a repeat test every two
years to maintain bone health.
Make a bone density test appointment now at
Forester’s Chemmart in the Coles Complex by
phoning 8952 4173.

then a massive trip of 100
World War 2 vehicles to travel
from Sydney to Alice Springs.
‘‘It was huge back then but
very little on the scale compared to this journey.
‘‘It was amazing when we
unloaded all 100 vehicles in
Alice Springs and then travelled in convoy 1600kms to
Darwin before arriving on the
eve of the 50th anniversary of

‘‘But on the Peking to Paris

Soviet military city, made mistakes in the Gobi Desert and
got lost which was scary.
‘‘Every day was a crazy adventure, an emotional and

breakdowns — some emotional

‘‘But it was worth it.’’
After 60 days of sight-seeing,

most memorable moment for
him was the end.
He said: ‘‘There was plenty

Great Expedition will screen
ABC television on Sunday at
7.30pm.
Once married and the mother of two homegrown sons, Susan Tom is both a Mother Teresa
and an ordinary woman.
Among her special needs children are Faith,
severely burned as an infant in a crib fire; Xenia,
born without legs and Anthony, who was born
with a genetic disease that causes his skin to
blister with the slightest touch.
The documentary covers everything from back
to school haircuts to school dances, holidays and
hospital visits to a time when one of her children
threatens to tear the family apart.
Joe, 15, is suffering from severe attention-deficit
disorder, and is becoming unmanageable.
His condition is only partially tamed by medication, and he has extreme mood swings in which
he veers from a sweet, loving son to a foulmouthed bully who taunts the other children,
makes inappropriate sexual gestures towards a
sister and threatens violence.
Recently Joe met his birth mother, a recovering
crystal methedrine addict, and he dreams of living
with her and her new husband.
Although his birth mother gives him love when
he visits, it is made clear she doesn’t want parental
responsibilities.
For a single mother who receives limited help
from the state, Susan gives her kids love, hope and
as close to a normal childhood as possible.
But when the family’s limited resources are
tested by Joe’s increasingly violent behaviour
mixed with another child’s unstable condition, the
entire family learns that living for the moment is
the key to their happiness.
Winner of the Audience and Director’s Award at
the 2003 Sundance Film Festival, My Flesh and

cartoonist and car enthusiast
Warren Brown.
Brown was one of the 15
crew which set off on that reenact the 1907 Peking to Paris
journey.
He said: ‘‘It was simply
amazing.
‘‘Even more so that we could
find five cars — all in nearexcellent condition to take
part — and drivers crazy
enough to do it.’’
Brown, along with 14 others
including drivers, mechanics
and support crews, drove five
cars — an Itala, a yellow De

Bouton, Spyker and a Contal
— over 60 days from Beijing to
Paris through rain, hail and
shine to make the journey.
He said: ‘‘We travelled the
same route that they would
have done years ago.
‘‘It was crazy because there
were no maps in China for the
route.’’
The journey didn’t only require the 100 year-old vehicles
but period outfits as well.
Brown searched high and
low to find appropriate clothing for the event.
He said: ‘‘We managed to
put bits and pieces together
for the outfits that people
would have worn in 1907 and
the clothing was wonderful,
really practical and incredibly
comfortable.
‘‘Which is good because you
would never want to see people

‘‘But it was really warm and
incredibly comfortable — essential for when you are travelling 60 days in all sorts of

‘‘But we battled on through
the rain in Russia which

seen before on mainstream television will
screen on SBS at 10pm.
Gunner Palace shows troops angry, confused, flamingly foul-mouthed, constantly
scared yet in the midst of Baghdad’s lethal
chaos, improbably good natured and
steadfastly brave.
The soldiers’ headquarters is the former
Azimiya Palace. The bombed-out palace,
complete with swimming pool and putting
greens, provides a surreal backdrop to the
soldiers’ stories.

Profitability: Profit
is a strong indication of
the presence of a business but the lack of
profit does not necessarily preclude this.
Size: There is a direct relationship be-
tween the scale of the
operation and the likelihood it will be considered a business.
Effort: Substantial
and regular time and
effort would generally
indicate a business activity.
Records: If proper
business records are
kept, along with evidence of planning and
business systems, this
is a strong indication
that a business exists.
If you believe your
operation meets the
above criteria, the result could significantly
impact on your tax position.
A large profit from
your venture could result in a significant increase in your tax liability.
The fact that you
make a loss does not
necessarily mean it
qualifies as a business,
although you will need
to ensure that one of
the
non-commercial
business loss tests can
be met before you
claim the deduction.

Down to 10 men mid-way through the
first half, Vikings clung on to claim a point
at Ross Park on Sunday.
Morelli was stunned to see his side
struggle to capitalise on the setback in the
Grand Final rematch.
He said: ‘‘A lot of players didn’t do well.
Instead of looking for passes we would hold
the ball, making mistakes and missing
chances to score.’’
Verdi were upstaged early when All
Blacks new recruit Josh Hughes pounced in
the 15th minute.
The joy was short-lived when Peter
Sallegren was sent off for kicking Reds
striker Yani Hatzimihail.
Vikings woes were compounded when
Hatzimihail converted a penalty, locking
scores 1-1 at half time.
Richard Farrell hit back for Vikings after
the break to give the reigning premiers
another sniff of victory.
Former
Vikings
midfielder
Jhana
Cowham had the final say, capitalising on a
defensive error to score Verdi’s second in
the 77th minute.
While Vikings and Verdi toughed it out
for a draw, Federal United went on a
rampage against Scorpions with a thumping 5-0 win.
Neil Rutland continued his scorching run
of form with the first hat-trick of the

Bloods are far
from perfect
AUSTRALIAN FOOTBALL
By ANDREW ALOIA
WEST
midfielder
Jason
Rosenthall says the Bloods have
been shaken by Pioneer’s soaring effort at the weekend.
PUB: CADV
The Bloods managed to hold
on to victory, downing the
Eagles 12.11 (83) to 10.6 (66).
While premier West remain
undefeated after three rounds,
the 17-point win at Traeger Park
on Saturday proved they are
susceptible.
Rosenthall admits that the
rest of the league is forcing the
Bloods to push harder.
He said: ‘‘We are aiming for a
new benchmark.
‘‘We have set that benchmark
and that is what the rest are
aiming for. Now we need to push
that bit further, that fraction
higher.’’
Injury-riddled West staved off
the Eagles early, leading 3.3 (21)
to 2.2 (14) at the first break.
Pioneer did not back off in the
second quarter.
Eagle Michael McDonald slotted the first goal of the quarter
before Rosenthall took charge.
The Bloods midfielder was in
stunning form, linking up well
with West’s defensive pairing of
Mark Bramley and Andrew
Crispe.
The Eagle resurgence was
pummelled midway through the
second period with two quick
goals from west goalsneak Gilbert Fishook.
Eagles’ defence was kept busy
in the third with Keith Durham
and Dylan Measures keeping
the pressure on the likes of Craig
Turner and Aaron Kopp.
In a scrappy affair West capitalised on Pioneer lapses midway through the third term.
Kopp said: ‘‘There was a lot of
good signs for us. In the end
their team work was more consistent.’’
While Kopp tried to quell the
Bloods surge, there was little he
could do to control West’s expansive midfield play.
A red card to Turner for ver-
bally abusing an umpire was a
late blow to the Eagles.
While injury has threatened
the Bloods, it has been fortunate
to have a handy pool of talent in
reserve to pull from.
Rosenthall said: ‘‘We have got
a lot of key players that can chop
and change and switch and fill
those positions.
‘‘This year is looking good with
more and more guys keen to step
up when needed.’’
Rovers added to Federal’s
woes, giving them their third
straight defeat.
The Blues 14.8 (92) to 11.7 (73)
win was another milestone for
the club, sealing Rovers first
CAFL clean sweep from the
under-17s to seniors in more
than two years.
Rovers overcome the struggling club kicking six goals to two
in the final quarter.
Sean Brown was brilliant for
Feds with six goals.

People have been asked not to move bike signs
or tape on any of the tracks.
Organiser Jack Oldfield said competitors’ lives
were being put at risk when signs were moved.
He said: ‘‘Many people do it as a bit of a joke, but
what they don’t know is that these competitors are
not from around here and have little idea on how
to find their way back.’’
Last year, some riders were found 30km away in
remote bushland, which led to one international
rider suffering from extreme dehydration.
Mr Oldfield said: ‘‘These competitors are professionals who can travel 30kms away from an
area within an hour and if the tracks gets changed
it can result in extreme accidents that can be
fatal.’’
Tape and signs are removed after each stage of
the race.
Mr Oldfield said: ‘‘ We are just asking people not
move signs or tape at all during the race as it is
dangerous and risky for riders of the event.’’
The Central Australian Bike Challenge starts
on Saturday and continues through until Friday,
May 19.

years for the Central Australian Bike Challenge.
PAGE: 33

COLOR:
Organiser Jack Oldfied said
the challenge was the richest
mountain bike event in Australia.
It will have plenty of competitive racing among the 160
entries as outstanding competitors such as previous winners Chris Jongewaard and
Jaap Viergever are not riding.
Included in the field are 2005
runner up Alex Randall and
Team Scott colleague Adrian
Jackson and Aidel Lefmann
from Team Cannondale.
Another rider who will attract interest will be John
Waddell, a former Red Bull
Rampage rider who made a
career out of jumping off
buildings and cliffs on 20cm
travel bikes.
He has now taken up endurance racing.
Another rider not to be forgotten
is
Alice
Springs’
champion Daniel Johnston.
Other Centralians who are
expected to do well, and have a
chance to be on the podium
during the event, include Kym
Hansen in the veteran men
and Nicole James in the open
female category.
It will not be easy with
Katrin Van der Spiegel back
favours will be 60-year-old
John Nutter.
Oldfield expects the riders
will be about an hour quicker
overall this year due to the
cooler weather, the recent rain
compacting the soil and the
likelihood of less punctures as
there are not so many prickles
about.
The prologue will begin at
4pm on Saturday and follow
the Old Telegraph Station
river walk.
On Sunday spectators can
gather for the stage start at
the velodrome at 8am or be in
position at the end of Smith
Street, near the old abattoir,
as the riders take the dirt
crossing over the rail. The
finish will be opposite Flynn’s
Grave at about 9.50am.
There will be a good vantage
point at the YMCA on Monday at 10am before the challenge heads back to Telegraph
Station at 8am on Tuesday.
All spectators are asked to
respect private property and
not to drive or park cars on the
course.
Entries are still being accepted from local riders interested in riding the event.
Oldfield said it would not be
possible to stage the Central
Australian Bike Challenge
without the help from volunteers and support from sponsors — many Alice Springs
businesses (see below).

With 15 seconds remaining,
and the next centre, West
missed a shot from almost
under the net to level the
game.
Julie Phillips was outstanding in defence for Rovers,
pulling in numerous retrieves
from almost impossible situations to save a turn over.
She also pulled in the crucial
final rebound that saw the ball
whisked forward for Aimee
Rodda to score the goal to put
the result beyond doubt.
Rovers had almost 20 more
shots than their rival.
A sickening, accidental clash
of heads in the second quarter
saw West’s Raewyn Poumako
and Rovers’ Kelsey Rodda go
to hospital with concussion.
While both went home on
Saturday night, Poumako was
still sore yesterday and probably will not play this week.
The injury to Rodda exposed Rovers problem if anything happened to its attack
players.
While the side was reorganised — Tara Everett going
from goal keeper to wing de-
fence, Lauren Mengel from
wing to centre and Hannah
Cartwright from centre to
wing attack and Carlie Martin
coming on as the keeper — it
was left short of options.
Coach Leanne Murphy kept
Katie Pickett on as goal
shooter although she was
struggling, and not just from
the typically strong defence of
Margaret Smith, and only
scored eight goals for the
game.
The pressure of winning two
games in a row proved too hot
for Sundowners Mayfields to
handle and Centralian Masters Voyages came from behind at half time to win 36-33.
Sundowners began with
Tegan Pabst, after being ill
during the week, on the
sidelines and only coming on
when Megan Cantwell was
injured in the third quarter.
But she was unable to perform to her best and Masters

2003.
Waddell knows he is lucky
to be alive and is keen to
make the most of life.
He has turned his back on
downhill racing, taking on
endurance racing instead.
At his peak Waddell was

I just can’t do what I used to,
An horrific accident at a my brain is too fragile.

‘‘The speed of downhill

were gnarly but I just can’t
go back to doing it.’’
While Waddell can no
longer
chase
his
first
passion on the mountain
bike, he wants to make the
most of the things he can
still do.
Last year the 26-year-old
returned to ride the punishing The Mont 24-hour race
in Canberra and took on the
Wild Side tour earlier this
year.
The Central Australian
Bike Challenge this weekend is another opportunity
to test his progress.
Initially doctors doubted
that Waddell would return
to riding.
He has pushed through
his rehabilitation after the
accident,
starting
from
scratch, learning how to
walk and talk again.
Riding is still difficult for
the man who once prided
himself on taking on any
track as fast as he could.
These days Waddell takes
a cautious approach to riding technical tracks, getting
through unscathed.
He said: ‘‘The longer the
race the better it is for me. If
the track is for power riding
then I’ll be a good chance of
doing well.
‘‘If the track gets technical
then I’m in trouble. I practice a lot of technical tracks
but I’m still learning all the
skills of riding again.’’
The CABC is another
practice ride for Waddell
who plans to race for the
Crocodile Trophy.
He said: ‘‘I know I am a
strong person and very competitive so I want to go as far
as I can.
‘‘I won’t make predictions
about how I will go (this
weekend) or what I will do in
the future.
‘‘I’m just taking it as it
comes, challenging myself
and doing the best I can
every time I race.’’

LEADING local trainer Sheila
Arnold will be busy packing away
her six Alice Springs Cups as she
bids farewell to the Centre.
PROUD AND JOY: Sheila and Keith Arnold with Zylvester. Picture: CHLOE ERLICH
36 — Centralian Advocate, Tuesday, May 9, 2006
Only last Monday Sheila and husband Keith were celebrating the
miraculous success of Zylvester in
the XXXX Alice Springs Cup.
The next day they made the decision to sell their property on Heenan
Road and the pair jumped at the
chance to set their sights on success
beyond Pioneer Park.
The couple do not know where
they will settle but one thing is for
certain — Zylvester will be their
guide.
The Darwin Cup is Sheila’s first
priority; from there a move to Brisbane is likely.
She said: ‘‘The Darwin Cup is the
next logical step for Zylvester.
‘‘The owners like to party in Darwin, they love the place so we are
definitely aiming to win there.
‘‘We really don’t know where we
will end up. We can go anywhere if
the horse goes well.’’
Sheila has built a sterling reputation for herself in Territory racing
since arriving in Alice Springs in
1968.
