Pigeons will fly - The Sydney Morning Herald - 5th January 2009

Twelve pigeons named after the Channel Nine commentary team will be raced today from Glenn McGrath Oval in Narromine to the north-west NSW town of Trangie (about 30 kilometres) in support of the McGrath Foundation. The Pink Pigeon race is sponsored by Betfair, who have framed a market listing Scoob (Simon O'Donnell) as the $3.30 favourite. Slats is next at $4.70 while Chappelli is paying $4.90. Big odds for Kenny ($21) and Ritchie ($18.50). Still on odds, McGrath is the firm favourite with Centrebet to be named Australian of the Year ($1.80), ahead of Aboriginal leader Professor Michael Dodson ($3.50).
