HE’S called Captain Risky and he cuts an imposing figure while Old Junee’s Anthony White cuts up the dirt on the skid pan.
“I spent a few late nights with Captain Risky putting him together and making sure he’s in there securly,” Mr White said.
When it comes to the National Circlework Championship at the Deniliquin Ute Muster it’s not just about the driving, the dirt or the noise.
“The biggest thing is the crowd, you’ll win a few extra points if you win the crowd. The driving takes care of itself,” Mr White said.
Mr White knows a thing or two about performing at Deni, having come second and third in the barrel racing, and placed second in the circlework competition on the weekend.
“I came down with the family, and we thought you can’t just turn up in any old car, I bought this ute second hand off Ebay with my nephew,” Mr White said.
Driving down to Deniliquin, Mr White wasn’t about to tempt fate and kept the captain down in the ute.
“We bolted him on before heading out into the arena.”
