Hajime possesses speed beyond that of any other racing camel in the history of Australian Camel Racing. This fact was proven with an Australian record breaking win in the Bedourie Cup Final in 2019 in a time of 32.43 seconds over 400m. Hajime was eligible for the Melbourne cup of Camel Racing, but Glenda removed him as a contender due to him being only 4yrs old. He competed in the Boulia 1/4 Mile Flyer Cup Final and won it by 7 lengths. He had a little trouble understanding a tighter track at Winton, but still won his heat & the Winton Cup.
Already standing at the same height as the champion 'Chief', with another years growth and maturity, Hajime has a high likelihood of being unbeaten in 2020.

Outlaw Bobaluie is one of Australia's most well known camels. Not only on the race track, but also for film, live performance, jumping and barrel racing. He has seen it all on the racetrack and still has the ability to win races today, so never underestimate him, especially over middle distance. He place 2nd four times in 2018 and shocked many as to how close he came to the win. He won his "64th" race with Glenda riding happier than ever being with him in 2019. Outlaw Bobaluie made history in 2019 being the only camel ever to race for 20 years.
LITTLE TOWER - Raced in the 2018 season only. 2018 -20. 10 year old bullock.
OVERALL PLACES - 1st = "2" 2nd = 3 3rd = 1 Paid = 1 Unplaced = 1st race
Little Tower, was named after Glenda's first camel of 9 years 'Hightower' as he is very similar in appearance and nature. Glenda bought him out of the 2010 Boulia Camel Tag event at 9 months old (and drew him as her tag camel in the event). He was never a human friendly type of camel, but after 8 years Glenda managed to break through to his kinder side. As the 2018 season progressed Little Tower began to take to racing in exciting style. He is going through a growth spurt which will see him literally bigger and better going into the 2020 race season.
Bourney - Unraced. Will have his first race in 2020 if ready. 5 year old bullock.
This is one of the most exciting prospects Glenda Sutton has ever seen. In September of 2017 while mustering camels for other purposes this little camel stood out brilliantly as a racing animal. His bravery levels at a young age became apparent during his initial breaking in stages, and if brought out on the racetrack could see him come into the sport enormously competitive.
KUMITE - 2nd year of racing. 2019-2020. 19 year old Bullock
RACE STARTS - "12"
OVERALL PLACES - 1st = "2" 2nd = 2 3rd = 0 Paid = 3 Unplaced = 6 No cup finals
TOTAL PRIZE MONEY - $2,800.00
Glenda rescued Kumite at the age of 17 from a situation of undernourishment. His growth had been stunted, but he still possesses incredible speed for his size. In 2019 he had a tendency to buck, but once he accepted being ridden he came out with a couple of unexpected wins, including Glenda's great friend "BOB BLACKET's" Memorial Plate at the Winton Camel Races. As Glenda loves his company, Kumite may just come along for one race in 2020.
