• Short Summary

    Sheep racing in California.

  • Description

    This story runs straight on from THE KENTUCKY DERBY (1115.14).

    California, United States of America (USA).

    Sheep race in Australia.

    M/S of young sheep / lambs taken from a lorry, as they are placed on the ground they leap in the air and run. M/S of lambs being lined up at the starting line for the race. Animals are held back by their owners. Looks suspiciously like some deviant sexual practice! L/S of the start, the lambs run everywhere with their owners trying to make them stay on the course.

    Panning shot of another race, this time the lambs, or at least the majority of them, stay on the course. Their owners grab them at the finish before they leap away.
